The majority of our families live in the Midwest.

It has been exciting to locate our "roots". It is never done, new ones are added constantly to the growing family tree.
Love talking about our extended families!

RE: Ephriam B Jones
I was just looking at your answer to my message. Did I ever answer you? Yes Emily Howell, the wife of William Williams, is a daughter of my John Howell. Ephraim Jones was the witness to the will of John Howell. John died in Illinois but the will was probated in WI in the 1850s.

Mary Jane Howell and Jeremiah Brown are no relation to my John Howell.

What are the names of those in the Clark/Jones and Brown families that are yours. I am still missing the info on 2 sisters of John Howell - Ruth and Emma. Ruth was born in the 1790s and Emma about 1800. Could these be wives in your family??

Thanks for answeering, Leslie

RE: Delana Geary Workman
I have in my records she was born 1796. Find A Grave has it wrong but I don't have maintenance of her. I can ask the date be changed.
The McClarren family I have found the name to be spelled 3 different ways. McClarren, McClaren & McClaran. Makes it really confusing.
Nancy's parents were James Gibson McClarren (14172181), b.July 15, 1801 Venango Co., PA., d.June 27, 1881, Mercer Co., Mo. and Mary Ann McDonald (14172182), b.Sept 13, 1805, Columbiana Co., OH, d.Aug 15, 1882, Mercer Co., MO. They were married Oct 26, 1829
They are buried in Goshen Cem., Mercer Co., MO.

Miles Workman
I don't see his name on the tombstone. Only the Workman name. #13909664. Also is his wife, Drucell McClarren Workman buried with him? Her dates are 1831 to 1851. I have her buried in Oak Grove Cem., Greene Co. Indiana, #146213783. If she is I would be glad to move her. I deleted him from Oak Grove. Thanks,

Oliver H. Smith
I am researching a Charles H. Smith, also in Clay County, who married a Mary Nation and died in Coles County, Illinois. He may have been born in Canada. Do you know if my Charles is any relation to your Oliver? Thanks much.

RE: Burwell Jones
Hello, Yes there is a marriage record for Burwell Jones to Nancy Sowers. Nancy was married in 1849 to Wilson Sowers, Eppard/Eppert/Ephest (spelling varies) is her maiden name. She had 4 children with Wilson; Alonzo, William E., George W., and Lon. The 1870 Census, shows Alonzo Sowers as living with her and new husband Burwel Jones. Nancy and Burwel had one child (that I know of) Charles B. Jones (my 2nd great grandfather)

Thor Ellingson
Sorry, Thor's family name is Ellingson. Thor and Hannah's daughter, Lily Thorina Ellingson, married Conrad Martinius Iverson. Conrad and Lily's daughter, Sybel Irene (Iverson) Larson, is my mother.

Bethany Cemetery - Esmond ND
In response to your inquiry, I posted Bethany Lutheran Cemetery records on the memorials of Christ Heltne and of his wife, Anna Hanson Heltne. Also, I identified their spousal relationship. Are you a descendant?

My relationship is through Marie Lybeck Heltne. I am a descendant of Iver Lybeck (1827-1909) and Karin (1829-1911). Their daughter Johanna (Hannah) married Thor Iverson, who owned the Bonnie Brae Dairy at Valley City ND.

You may contact me by email at

RE: Josiah Smith
I don't have any information about a Josiah Smith. My ancestry goes through John Smith of Wakefield and then of course his father Joshua Smith and his father John Smith (the supposed immigrant). John Smith (who died 1842) is an uncle of mine (4th great grand uncle) and I actually have little information about him except his death announcement in the newspaper. I have not researched his line. I know he had a daughter Mary because of the will of Mary Stevenson Smith (wife of John the immigrant). Is Josiah a son of his?

RE: 73870479 Joseph Smith
He is the son of Joshua Smith and Susanna Wells. also buried in the same cemetery. I just added their family links to his page. Joshua Smith is the brother of the John Smith (d. 1842) to whom you refer, so John would be an uncle to this Joseph Smith.
