Hugh Luke Degnan, Find A Grave Memorial# 51377243

We may have corresponded some time ago. I'm afraid I haven't been able to find past messages between us, if so.

This gentleman is my 3x-greatuncle. He was the brother of my 2x-great-grandmother, Anna Elizabeth Degnan Carre (1839-1919) of Rockford, Illinois.

Their parents were Michael Luke Degnan and Ann Mary Cullen. They had three other sisters, Mary (1835-1905), Sarah (1838-1924) and Bridget Mary (1843-1920)

The family came from County Roscommon, Ireland. They first lived in New York and New Jersey, where Ann Mary Cullen Degnan died.

Michael then married Bridget Dolan (1835-1900), and they had Louis "Luke" Francis (1861-1929), Michael Jay (1864-1929) and Annie "Fannie" M. (1867-1949).

Michael, Bridget and their children moved to Rockford, Illinois. Of Michael's older children all but my 2x-great-grandmother, Anna Elizabeth, went on to Beloit, Wisconsin.

Have more family information if you're interested.

Shirt-tail Cousins
Hi, David - Thanks for posting the notes about John T Foust and Maggie. They are my maternal great great grandparents as well. David E, their son was my grandfather and Arthur was my grandfather.

One issue that bothers me and the only record that isn't matching up is all the Census records and such show David as born in 1871, yet his gravestone in this same cemetery shows 1879. I am not 100% certain the 2 Davids are the same. If there is any light you can shed on this mystery, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again and I will continue my research to see if I can solve this mystery.

The Fousts
Hi David: Just found the images of the gravestones of John Tyler Foust and Margueritte Louisa Wayne Foust. They are my great-great grandparents, too. My gg-grandmother was Serena Foust Daugherty (I have seen many different spellings of her name). She and my great-grandfather, Ed Daugherty, are buried in the cemetery in Boscobel. I enjoy finding all of these postings; I need to visit the graves sometime in the near future. Thanks for posting these!

I noticed your picture of Ludwig Heise, who is an ancestor of my cousins through Lotta Klitch and her daughter Clara Holtgreve. Do you have any more pictures like these? Do you know anymore about the Rabbe family (Lugwig's wife)?
Thank you,
Erica Lee Berquist

RE: Nellie Bernhardt
You didn't happen to get the picture of Paula Bernhardt's headstone? She may be related, I'm going to do some research tonight and tomorrow to see.

Jean Glick
Many, many thx for your msg re: picture of Jean Glick's grave site. It is, indeed, possible that she never had one, as the family was quite poor at the time; however, I know she is buried there, so maybe her stone exists but is hard to find. Many thx for your efforts! S M Freed

RE: Nellie Bernhardt
Thanks for trying. There was an Elizabeth Burnhardt that was buried in the same section and grave. I thought it might be her mother. But doing more research, I found that it wasn't.
