Can you post Sarah's other children: Savanah Wooley born Sep 1894 Archie Samuel Wooley born Feb 1898 Emma R. Wooley born Sep 1899
The 1900 census said she had given birth to 12 children but only 8 were living. There were 3 McCarthy children. 1 McAfee and 3 Wooley children I wonder when the other 5 were delivered and who there father/s was? Derry
Peter L Atkins 78021401/ Kendal Batson Atkins 65300987 There should be an edit forthcoming, suggested by me 47976497 on Dec 11, linking Peter as son to Kendal Batson Atkins. Previous info from another source, but listed on Kendal's bio, has Peter's death as 1872. This would be a typo.
Peter moved to Nebraska 1887-1888, and lived until 1907. He died in Kimball County, NE. Peter was my Great-Grandfather. Peter had only two children of his own, graves also located Kimball County.
Would you be able to correct or omit the date in the hand-typed section so that it does not conflict with the new link?
Thanks for your work. The town of Milton, Iowa was named after Milton, DE where the Atkins and Lanks,wife's family, moved from. The Atkins-Lanks came to Iowa in 1850 or early 1851... one son being born on the road in Illinois.
John Levi Christison My Name is Harley R. Lusher John is my 2nd great grand uncle, I don't know where you got the information on his mother but it is wrong Toland was married to Lucy Ann Churchill in 1850 in missouri. and were still married when Toland died in 1901. and they were the parents of John Levi Christison he was named Levi after his geandfather Levi Churchill. If you have information conflicting to mthis I would love to see it, but I think someone has made a mistake. Harley
RE: John Dement I am not related to John, but, I do have a special interest in him. John served in the Civil War enlisting in Company G of the 4th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry on Sept 24, 1861 at a ripe old age of 17. He was mustered out upon the end of his service (he had enlisted for 3 years) on Oct 20, 1864.
This is what I know about John. I show that he was taken prisoner when the 4th captured the city of Nashville, TN on May 8, 1862 and was sent to Salisbury, NC POW Camp. He was either paroled or exchanged (we don't know which) in May, 1862 arriving by the steamer "Guide" in NY on June 9, 1862. We do not show him being wounded or captured at any other time. He would have participated in the battles of Stones River, TN (Dec 31, 1862 - Jan 2, 1863) Chickamauga, GA (Sept 20, 1863) and various battle around Atlanta in 1864.
The reason I know this is because I am the President of the 4th OVC Descendants Assn (4th OVCDA). Our mission is to preserve the memories of those gallant men who came to the aid of their country in its trying times. We share what information we have about the men and the unit to anyone who asks free of any charge. One of our greatest achievements was to have the honor of helping to conserve the 4th's regimental flag at the Ohio Historical Society. I would be pleased if you would visit our web site at: http://4thohiocavalry.webs.com/ We would welcome you to join our family. Our dues are only $10 per year for a single membership and $15 for a family membership (family consists of those living in same household).
Do you have any stories of John or any pictures that you could share with us? We know so little of him and we don't want him to be just a name. We want him to be flesh and blood.
You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please help us with any stories or pictures you might have about John.
