RE: re: photo James Huron
I just checked the MN history center death certificate index ( for James Huron. He is listed as dying in Ramsey Co. on Jan 21, 1937, same as I see your James Huron who is buried in Duluth. Would he have been down there visiting or for medical treatment at time of death even if he lived up here?

The superintendent at Calvary has been computerizing their records, hand entering everything from the books. James Huron was not in the index card list and I didn't have his actual date to look in the chronological record. I wil keep this on my list for my next trip to Calvary.

RE: George C Kincannon
Well here is the source that I think put this issue to rest.

Description : Probate Records, Box 388, File 16 - Box 390 Source Wisconsin, Wills and Probate Records, 1800-1987 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA

the probate records show that Andrew J Kincannon died in Aug 1858, leaving 3 minor children: Lucy Kincannon, age 11, Mary, age 9 and Andrewetta, age 7. The Guardian of the of the persons and property was named by the Court as their Uncle James C. Kincannon (brother of Andrew). The probate started in 1866. I don't know what happened to their Mother. There is no mention of the Mother or other Children or why it took so long to start the probate. One piece of property that was sold was purchased for $400 by James C. Kincannon's Wife Francis Elizabeth Palmer Kincannon.

Best regards

RE: George C Kincannon
Sometimes there are only secondary sources available,after all we are talking about the 1850's.However not all the information in those County Histories are from memory. The example is the marriage record of Catherine Kincannon, Andrew J. Kincannon.

Chapter 5, of the History of Crawford and Richland Counties is titled Varous Official Matters. The first paragraph states:

Pg. 798, "In this connection are presented various official matters, which, although too brief to place in a chapter separately, are too important to be entirely ignored. The items have been gathered from records, and other authentic sources"

This chapter goes onto listing tax records, farm production, post offices and post masters, salaries of County Workers, etc, etc, including The Marriage Record on pages 809 to 813.

Starting on Pg. 809,it lists the first marriage recorded in the Richland County books that bears the date of May 14, 1850 and then goes on to say;

"The following are the marriages which appear upon record as having taken place during the years 1850, 1851, 1852 and 1853, showing the parties, the date and the officiating officers:

pg.810: "Andrew J. Kincannon to Elizabeth Kincannon, by Johnson Young, justice of the
peace, Jan 23, 1851"

Source:History of Crawford And Richland Counties Wisconsin, (Springfield, Ill. (facsimilie reprint Salem Mass.): Union Publishing Company (facsimilie reprint by Higginson Book Company), 1884 (facsimilie reprint 1996),Chap 5,Various Official Matters.

NOTE: In my first message I gave you Chapter 4, which is about County Government. The marriage records are in Chapter 5. You can read all of this because the whole book is on line.

I believe that I have proven that Andrew married George's Widow Catherine Higham based on the totality of the evidence, I cannot prove it beyond all doubt. If you come up with better proof that I am wrong then I will be willing to change all the information in my Family Tree.

As for your question " Do you have a marriage record or birth/death records for the youngest children, with the father's name on it? No, this side of the Family is not my main research interest. I am descended from the sixth oldest son of William Reed Kincannon. Matthew C. Kincannon is my 2G Grandfather. Brother of George and Andrew.

If you want to pursue research on this Family line and you have an account there are 13 public member trees listing Andrewetta Ann Kincannon, Birth 24 SEP 1858 Port Andrew, Richland, Wisconsin, USA.,Death 25 APR 1930 Quincy, Columbia, Oregon, USA. She married
Richard Andrew Lillich, Birth APR 1852 Wisconsin
Death 25 SEP 1934 Bryant Cemetery, Clatskanie, Columbia, Oregon. She married him in 1876.

RE: George C Kincannon
Thank you for a chance to clear up a mystery for you.

George Covington Kincannon was the oldest of the 10 Kincannon brothers.

You are correct that George C Kincannon, born c. 1823 in Tennessee and married Elizabeth C Higham on 27 Apr 1843, in Madison County, Illinois.

Source:Dodd, Jordan. Illinois Marriages to 1850 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 1997.

Elizabeth C. Higham
Spouse: George C. Kincannon
Date: 27 Apr 1843
County: Madison
State: Illinois
Source: Family History Library, Salt Lake City, UT
Microfilm: 1306457

George C Kincannon died 1 Oct 1850 in Placerville, El Dorado, CA

Source:History of Crawford And Richland Counties Wisconsin, No Author listed, (Springfield, Ill. (facsimilie reprint Salem Mass.): Union Publishing Company (facsimilie reprint by Higginson Book Company), 1884 (facsimilie reprint 1996))Chapter 30,Town of Richwood,

Page 1225: "George C., who preceded his father to Richland one year, went to California in 1849, and died in Placerville, Cal., in 1850"

You are correct that He appears in the 1850 U.S.Census, taken on 18 August, 1850, in District 26, Richland County, Wisconsin. His wife is Elizabeth, eldest son Edwin A, born c. 1844; daughter Adolphine M, born c. 1847; and son John William, born c. 1849.

The only conflict is that the History of Crawford and Richland Counties have him going to Placerville in 1849. Further research is needed to resolve this conflict.

What you did not know and it took me quite a while to figure out was that Elizabeth Catherine Higham married George's brother, Andrew Jackson Kincannon, b.27 JAN 1831,Illinois, d.22 Sept 1858,Wisconsin.

They were married on 23 Jan 1851.

Source:History of Crawford And Richland Counties Wisconsin, (Springfield, Ill. (facsimilie reprint Salem Mass.): Union Publishing Company (facsimilie reprint by Higginson Book Company), 1884 (facsimilie reprint 1996),Chap 4,County Government,

pg.810: "Andrew J. Kincannon to Elizabeth Kincannon, by Johnson Young, justice of the peace, Jan 23, 1851"

The entire book is transcribed and on line at the following web site.

Andrew Jackson Kincannon was the 4th oldest brother of the 10 brothers. The three youngest children listed in the 1860 census are his children.Lucy Kincannon, born c. 1852,Mary b.1854 and Andrew Etta Kincannon, born 24 Sept 1858.

Tragically Andrew died on 22 Sept 1858. Note he died 2 days before his last daughter Andrew Etta was born. That is why Elizabeth Higham Kincannon was alone with 6 children in the 1860 census.

The source for his year of death:Source:History of Crawford And Richland Counties Wisconsin, No Author listed, (Springfield, Ill. (facsimilie reprint Salem Mass.): Union Publishing Company (facsimilie reprint by Higginson Book Company), 1884 (facsimilie reprint 1996))Chapter 30,Town of Richwood, page 1225-1226.

The only information I do not have is the date of Elizabeth's death and location or what happened to her after 1860. I also do not know where Andrew Jackson Kincannon and George Covington Kincannon are buried.

Both brothers are my 3G Grand Uncles. All their children are my 1st Cousins 3x removed.

re: photo James Huron
I just submitted a problem as James Huron is not in the records at Calvary Cemetery in Duluth. I saw in MN death records that he died in Ramsey co.(150 miles away.) Perhaps he is in a Calvary down there, not so far north.

Do you have any info on where Jane Shields may be located. I would glad to take a picture for you if we had any idea where she may be laid to rest. This cemetery does have a map that a boy scout laid out a few years ago for his Eagle Scout project but there is no Jane Shields listed on there. There are so many graves that are listed on it as unknown. They are unknown for many reasons. One reason for this is that the headstones are so old & weathered that you can't read them & some are just falling apart because they look like they were made out of a very soft stone & they are just flaking away. That is the case for James Shields. His stone is also old and is weathered so bad you can't even make out the dates with the naked eye looking at it. I even talked to the scout who mapped out the cemetery & he stated that there are no records even at the church because there had been a few fires there many years ago where they have lost some records. Plus they had even checked at the court house & the Historic Society to try to get some more info & there just isn't much more to go on. The only other thing that I can think of is if or somebody you know is in the area of the Westmoreland County Court House go there to see if you can find any info as for James Shields dates.I only live a mile from Congruity & I would be happy to take the photo for you if you have any more info for her. As for James, my photo is the same as the one posted for him. Like I stated earlier his is so weathered it is even hard to read with your own eyes. If I can be of any more help let me know.

RE: Herman Breitfield not son of Gustav Breitfield
This change was in "as pending". I couldn't get it to make the change of removing the son from Gustav family. I transferred the memorial, so hopefully you will have better success in getting it corrected.
Thank you
