Mary Katherine Wirth
Mary was my father's first cousin. I have some info about the Wirth family, but I have found an interesting item that maybe you can help me with.
Mary's sister Rosa Lee was married two times, first to a man named William Richardson, and second, as you probably know, to John Hardison. I have found a birth certificate for her first son, William Leon Richardson Hardison, but I can't find anything about his bio father. Do you know anything about this? My genealogy is on Ancestry as you probably know since the photo of Mary is one I posted a couple of years ago.

Susan Decker Reel Craft
I am curious where you got this information on her. I have seen two date for marriage 1 for Susan Decker and the other for Susan Reel. The dates are only a month apart so I wondered if one was a license and the other an actual marriage but i could never find anything definitive.

James Morton


I would be interested in any information you might have regarding James Morton (Find A Grave Memorial # 13223345). James is believed to be my wife's 5th g-grandfather.
I am researching her family genealogy for her.
However, some genealogists, dispute the ancestry regarding James and his wife Jane Peden,in reference to their children, specifically a son named Marshall Morton.
Some argue there is no proof connecting Marshall to James and Jane.
Are you able to shed any light on this dispute as a result of your research on the Morton family?

Any assistance you might render in this matter would be deeply appreciated.
In advance, thank you for your time and consideration of my request.

RE: Mundens
Yes, Joseph Munden is connected to my family through his wife Elizabeth Ann Baggett.
And his sister Emily who married Uzziel Baggett.
I am sorry, but;
I have a problem with linking memorials to
unknown burials.
I have his parents listed in his BIO and you
have noted your memorial pages for them
through the flowers.

Sarah Munden
The info. I gave you yesterday is from memory as I do not have my files available to me at this time. I have received over 45+ documents within the last several months and Sarah and Levi's info.was in this group. I am pretty sure the info. came from Washington, Indiana.

You are fortunate that your family kept such good records. My family were Quakers also but I am still in the search and confirm process with some of my family lines. I've found that a Sarah Newby married a Joseph Park on 12 Jan 1808 in Perquimans, N.C. I then found that a Sarah Park married a Levi Munden on 7 April 1810 Perquimans. N.C. I am in the process of determining if these 2 Sarah's are the same person. Some of the info. I've found so far appears to indicate they are but I have more research to do before I will know for sure. Kind regards, Taddy

Sarah Munden
Hello Virginia, the information I have obtained so far leads me to believe this Sarah is Sarah Newby, my relative. I obtained her and Levi's death information from documents found in the Washington Historical Society. I know for sure she is the wife of a Levi Munden but I don't know if he is the same person you are related to. Kind regards, Teddy

Kingen Twins
Hi Virginia,
The picture of the older ladies you added to Anne E. Jones' page, are not Kingens. I recently found a copy of that picture in a box of my grandmother's pictures. She had written on the back "Mother and Aunt Meg". Her mother was Eliza Jane Herrell Utterback and Aunt Meg is Margaret Herrell Boaz. George and Anne E. Kingen Jones are my great grandparents. Also I believe Anne's mother's name was Christine or Christina. Do you know what happened to James Kingen? Did he die in the war? In the 1870 Mahaska county census Christina and children, William, Anne, Mary, John W., and George, were living with a J. Wires. I would appreciate any info you could give me on James & Christina.

RE: photo
You are so welcome! I looked again for Craig Beiber, same result as before. But I did post photos for Justin Bieber. (note the different spellings) I'm guessing that since there is a funeral home marker for Justin that he is in fact deceased... ???

RE: Milly
Hi Virginia,

I'm not sure if I ever replied to your question about whether Milly was my aunt.

Yes, she was the youngest in my mom's family. Mom was number four in the family.

I think I only saw Mildred, as Mom called her, once. It was when their father was dying.

Mom, my sister and I took the train from Eldon, the town just up the road from where I grew up, to Des Moines so that Mom could say good bye to her father, whom she hated.

Dad couldn't go on the trip because he had to stay to run the post office in Selma where we lived.

I remember that there were several sisters, but I don't remember which ones.

I was only eight when he passed, and only saw him that one time.

Hope this helps with some of your research.

Barney's wives
Good Morning Virginia,

Barnet (spelled several ways) was my great-grandfather through Jacob Henry Oswalt/Harriet Belle Collins > Goldie Florence

Barnet was an interesting man in that he married five times.
spouse 1:Minerva Jane Connelly - married 6-1-1858, divorced about 1888

I haven't checked the lines for Barney's other wives because I've spent the last almost thirty years working on Dad's side of the family.

spouse 2: Alcinda PITCOCK WATSON - I don't have marriage and divorce dates

spouse 3 Amauda WATON - again I don't have dates. It was argued loud and long among my Oswalt aunts about whether Alcinda and Amauda were sisters or sisters-in-law.

Silence Daws - again no dates

Florence Smith - married 9 - 19 - 1923 (This s the grandmother that Mom remembered. Mom was born in 1917 and was very fond of her grandmother Oswalt, and especially proud of the fact that Florence was very musical. Mom had no musical talent, but made sure that my siblings and I all had piano lessons. I went on to be a semi-professional musician (my late husband and I made lap dulcimers, hammered dulcimers and folk harps which we sold from a shop in Silver Dollar City back in the early 1980s. I also sang in every choir that was available until a bout of adult onset whooping cough damaged my vocal cords in the early 1990s. But I still play the piano for various groups.)

She was not fond of her grandfather and in fact she and her sisters really had very little good to say about the man. Apparently he was a mean drunk and didn't hesitate to beat up on whoever was around when he was drunk.

You may already have most of this information about Barney's wives, but thought that you might like to read the family memories.

The bad guys are just as interesting (maybe more so) than the good guys!

Best wishes,
Edith Stone

James Kingen
Hi Virginia,
I have been searching for James and Christina Kingen for years. The James Kingen, buried at Brooklyn, Iowa, can't be George Madison Kingen's father. According to the WPA gravestone records, the James Kingen buried at Brooklyn, died in 1880 at the age of 23. My great grandmother is Anne Elizabeth Kingen Jones (George's sister). James, Christina and children were in Decatur county, Iowa in 1860. I wondered if James died in the civil war. The last trace I have of him is in a listing of the Southern Border Brigade. In 1870, Christina was in Mahaska county, Iowa with a J. Wires (not sure of the spelling) and her children, Wm., Anne, Mary, John W. and George. Christina had another daughter with Mr. Wires, as Anne's obit lists an Ella Burke as a half sister. If you have any other info on Christina, please contact me.

RE: #32939648
Hi Virginia,

I will see what I can find out, either a name of the contact info of the caretaker of the cemetery or see if I can find someone to clean the headstone and let you know the info. I am not able to do this, and I know that there is a specific cleaner they use that will not damage the headstone. If you will email me I will reply with what I have found in a few days.

Thank you,

RE: Eli Craft
I also subscribe to I posted a photo there of Eli Craft from my grandfather's collection. Then Kirk Sellman restored it to near pristine condition (the man is truly gifted).

My grandfather also had a photo of Barbara Catt but someone in my family misplaced it and I have been hounding them to find it ever since. I hope it is not lost forever. Just thinking about it depresses me.

Kirk told me he bought a book about the Craft family 25 years ago. I would like to purchase a copy of that book for my own collection but have been unable to find one.

I will try to find your tree on ancestry. Feel free to examine mine called "Dearinger/Workman Family Tree.

Eli Craft
Thank you for your correspondence, Virginia.

I am unsure whether you are refering to the same Eli Craft (as you know there are several).

Mine lived from 1815-1883 and is buried in the Breon Cemetery in St. Clair County, Missouri.

He and his second wife Barbara Catt are my 2nd Great Grandparents.

Is this the same Eli Craft?

I can provide my contact information once we can establish a relationship.

Please write back and let me know. I've been contacted by only two other people related to that family, but they are descended from his first wife Susan Reel.
