RE: Stephen N. Johnston
Betty - Sorry, I have nothing further for Stephen Johnson, I did find a death record for him which I addded to his bio. No parents or spouse are listed, which are normally present. Johnson is a very common surname here, I have added over 50 here at Acacia. James Parmenter is not related to me. Regards, Stephen

Jacob HOM
The PDF file is about 10MB, so I should be able to send it via email, but I don't have an email address for you.

Sorry, his statement was directed to the Commissioner of Pensions.

I got the pension package today. The first 30 pages clearly spell the surname as "HORN".

Then there is this entry from Jacob, himself:

"To the

Dear Sir,

My name in the certificate is spelled "HORN", it should be spelled "HOM". You will see by my discharge that it is "HOM".

Jacob C. HOM"

I think that clears it up! "HOM" it is.

RE: Ida Koch Harris

I was married to Ida's grand daughter Cheryl Mingus and as her and her husband William Harris got older and unable to do many things for themselves we moved them in with us in Vancouver. Cheryl and I divorced in 1981 and they both lived with Cheryl and our daughter Selena until their deaths. Get a hold of me for additional info.

Jacob HORN vs HOM

While I am certain that Jacob used "HORN" during all of his military service, I now believe that the correct spelling is probably "HOM".

I usually consider a military pension application to be the "gold standard" for facts, because it requires so many individual sworn affidavits. But it is possible that his surname was misspelled during his first service - and he was "stuck" with that spelling - at least as far as the Army was concerned.

To help get to the bottom of this, I have ordered a copy of his first pension application package. Hopefully, he addressed the (mis)spelling in the application. It could take 6-8 weeks.

I'll let you know what I find.

RE: Phebe S. Johnston Flaherty
Looking though some scanned obits (which I was denied permission to upload and link to find-A-Grave), I see the following from Sept 25, 1890:

Mrs. Phebe S Flaherty dies of consumption Tuesday in Oshkosh, where her husband was employed in a furniture factory. She was a daughter of T. A. Johnston of this village and sister of Capt. C. W. and A. J. Johnston. Her remains were brought here for burial, the funeral being held Thursday.

Now, I find Phoebe G O'Flairty (original source file

Based on what I see now, I have:

1. Updated the location of death
2. Changed the death date to the 23rd, as the Tuesday before Sept 25, 1890 was the 23rd.
3. Changed the last name to Flaherty
4. Added the maiden name of Johnston
5. Changed the middle initial to S
6. Added the transcription of the obituary

I'm going to assume the spelling of the first name in the obit is incorrect though.

Her brother mentioned as A.W. Johnston might be Cornelius Wilsy Johnston also in Winneconne cemetery.

RE: Rebecca Jane Massey
Hi Betty,
Rebecca Jane Massey Tooley is also my Great Great Grandmother. Her daughter, Mary Ellen Tooley, is my Great Grandmother, and HER daughter, Gladys Anna Roe, is my grandmother. Her daughter, Marion Lois Wright, is my mother. You and I corresponded briefly on awhile back.

I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to maintain our Great Great Grandmother's memorial. Please let me know your thoughts.

Best regards,
Jeanie Adams
