RE: John C Dille #28712997 Came across your message regarding John C Dille and Mary Polly Holmes Dille. Wondering what info you have on Mary Holmes. I found her on findagrave #129876215. She is buried with maybe (3) small children. Do you have a tree on ancestry of this family? Thanks Donna
He was the son of Frances Elizabeth Brooks 37828864, not Ellen Adeline Worsham Brooks, Frances' daughter in law.
Please delete current parents, and add mother Frances Elizabeth Brooks 37828864. I wouldnt add her husband as the father, since he died in 1865. Frances had at least one other out of wedlock son, Travis Alonzo. Guess she had two.
To my knowledge, she was never called "Billie"-her nickname was Bettie. Please let me know if I'm wrong about that-if you know something about this family, I'd love to hear it.
I found a page you posted regarding Mary Coughlin Gainor. You mention her siblings, Ann, Catherine and Luke Coughlin. Luke is my g-g-grandfather. I have been looking for information about him and his family literally for years!
I know about Luke, his marriage to Bridget Reidy. I did not know he had siblings, but back then it only makes sense, families were all large.
Please tell me where you got the information about Mary Coughlin Gainor.
RE: Ambrose Childs Oh my - this is great! I got some of this line down to the 1940's last night looking for a descendant. So knowing where Margaret died is especially wonderful to find out. that to me is a tender mercy from God and I my heart is full that you would contact me so quickly! I don't know if you are related in any way? I do have the 1850 census. And access to Ancestry at times.
Margaret was a Johnson and her father was Daniel Johns(t)on who was born in Washington Co, PA and grandfather Samuel Johns(t)on from Cross Creek, Washington Co., PA. and that is where I'm stuck -trying to go further - was he the immigrant? etc.
Just for the record I will be putting all my sources on Family Tree - the newly released family records with documentation online that you can get to from www.familysearch.org. The pilot program was released last week for those who know nothing of it. Also, I will go back and ask to have all the memorials hooked up for all the generations by way of editing in this program also. It appears that at least three of the sons went to Eaton County, Michigan and I guess that was by way of Indiana. A missing link I would not have thought to search. Thank you!
Ambrose Childs You've done an inspiring work and it is much appreciated. Always taking the long shots I'm looking for further descendants of Ambrose Childs whose mother was Margaret Johnson & father Ambrose Johnson of Wayne County, OH. Is that something that can be placed on this web site? I hope your personal search for family is successful!
