I am interested in finding out more about this family. I am researching a Knipping family from Centralia, Madison, Ill.
The first names of the sons are the same which leads me to believe they are from the same German ancestor. Cousins, brothers. If this is not your family, do you know any family members? Not my family either, just researching for my Knipping friend. Thanks! Joyce

Lynn: I remember Father Time well from seeing him in all the right places---especially at the ballpark. I left an offering on his page. You did a great job on his page! If they would allow you to list him as famous, I for one would definitely go back and vote on your page for him. He is famous!

Hi Lynn: Happy 2017. If you feel so inclined, check out this memorial page and cast a vote. My guess is you will recognize the man. If no vote, it is still a good read. Hugs Barbara

RE: John Russell Harr
Greetings Lynn,
I know the holiday season is still upon us and it is a hectic time, for sure. I forgot to tell you in my prior message that I have extensive information into the Tucker and Hagan family lines that are part of the Harr family. I'd be glad to send that to you, if you wish. Our correspondence may be more efficient if you reply to my home email address, which is
Best wishes to you and your family for the New Year.
Warmest Regards,
Richard Jacobs, M.D.

RE: John Russell Harr
Greetings Lynn,
Holiday greetings to you and your family from me and mine here in Arizona. It sounds like you have a lot of good information on the Harr family, so I'm excited to here the story from you when the "whirlwind season" is over. I've been able to complete quite a bit a research into the Tucker family, from whom Mary Magdalen Harr's mother comes. This is a fascinating family that has roots in early colonial America, moved to the American frontier in Kentucky in the 1790s, and finally settled in Ste. Genevieve and Perry, Missouri area as early as 1803. The amazing thing about this is that the United States did not acquire the Louisiana Purchase from France until 1803 and Lewis and Clark did not set out to explore this territory until May 1804.

The other family that has me really stumped is the Perry family. Mary Magdalene Harr married William Nelson Perry, but I can't find anything before William's father. This appears to be a poor family of little means or education.

I can email you all my research if you are interested. In the mean time, Warmest Regards, Rich Jacobs, M.D. (Dec 23, 2016)

John Russell Harr
Greetings Lynn,
I am a descendant of John Russell Harr and Mary Victoria Tucker through my mom's mother's mother. Until I found your posting about him and his family, I really knew very little about him. Thank you for your work! Can you please tell me the documentation that links Mary Victoria Tucker to John Raymond Tucker and Mary Ellen Grass? Using the leads provided by your post, I got very different information and am now confused (as usual!). For example, I found their marriage in Perry, Missouri on October 6, 1858, not in January 1855. There is a St. Louis marriage license granted to a John R. Tucker and Miss Mary Ellen on January 15, 1855. The 1858 Perry, MO seems more likely, if this Tucker is Mary Victoria's father. This seems likely because Mary Victoria Tucker is listed among their offspring. Also, thank you for the wonder details you provided about John Russell Harr's life. Can you please tell me your resource for this? I wonder why Mary Victoria went to East St. Louis without John?
Thanks again,
Richard Jacobs, M.D. - a good email for a response

My name is Marlene I am the great granddaughter of Annie Ellen Wilkes. The last name of her daughter Mary Ellen is incorrect. When grandma passed away my grandmother was no longer married to Mr. Jackson.
She was married to my grandfather Luther Walker Malady. They had 6 children

Nellie Dalhaus McDonough's daughter
Hello Lynn- I found that Nellie's youngest daughter Peggy Harrington passed away in 2013 and I added her to Nellie's memorial page. You can update Nellie's obit to have Peggy's name put in instead of Living Harrington.

Osborn family
Thank You Lynn for the information on Leroy Osborn, Mary and Homer. Are you related?
You had so many details, I just wondered.
Leroy Osborn was my grandfather. My mother was Norma Jean Osborn, his child with Lois Starkweather. Norma was born in 1926 when Leroy was young. I have met Linda Osborn Morrison, and her brother (can't remember his name at the moment). Thanks again for the detailed information. Mary Heuerman Lusk

Lucinda Hutchinson Church
Hi Lynn,

We corresponded back in Jan. 2012 about Lucinda and her family. We couldn't understand why she was buried in Illinois while her husband and daughter were in Kansas. I have done a lot of research recently and have connected several memorials to hers. I also found 4 children we didn't know about originally but don't know for sure where they are buried, even though I imagine they are in the same cemetery as Lucinda, but no memorials for them. The 1880 census showed her daughter Rosa, living with her grandfather and step-grandmother in Kansas, with birth in Kansas. She was actually born in Calhoun Co., IL, where her other siblings were born. Rosa and her father George didn't move to Kansas until after Lucinda died. Anyway, with the memorials that have been tied to hers, some of the notes could now be removed. Additional info to add as follows.

Step mother of:
Samuel V. Church (b. 1861)
George C. Church (b. 1863)

Rosa and George W. Church, Jr. memorials are now tied to Lucinda's. The other children are as follows:
Joseph V. Church
b. 18 Dec 1864 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 02 Jan 1870 Calhoun Co., IL

Francis Church
b. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL

Margaret Ann Church
b. 09 Jan 1868 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 24 Dec 1869 Calhoun Co., IL

Lillie Bell Church
b. 09 Oct 1872 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 31 Dec 1876 Calhoun Co., IL

If you could add the above to her memorial and delete some of the notes I would very much appreciate it, and thanks so much for all you have done on her memorial in the past.

RE: Ransom family
My Grandmother's maiden name was Ransom...her father was a Ransom, her mother a Becker. They seem to have lived in Kansas City around the 1890s, many of them till about the early 1930s. The group I ultimately came from headed west, first to Arizona, then California. It is the Kansas City, Mo., time that I am trying to reconstruct.

Hello Lynn,

I have been working on my family's genealogy and was in contact with someone who had ties to Bayern, Germany records. She seemed to think that the Nicholaus Kamp named as George Sr.'s father could be an error and said I should contact you about how you found this information. Unfortunately, this is where I hit a dead end. I am hoping you can help so that I can continue with records in Germany.

Thank you very much for any help you may be able to offer.

Warm regards,

We *think* she is still alive. I have seen no record of her death in doing a search. Sorry I can't be more definite. Pam

RE: Roy Dudley
Looks like she deleted her memorial and took the photo with her. Wow.

I just put in a request for another photo. Hopefully it will be quick because the military cemeteries are pretty well followed.
Fingers crossed. Thanks, Pam
