Bio and Links
Bio Photo All my research and files on the Craigs, Crandalls, Horgans, Deneens & Leens are in my tree on ancestry.com.

I've also started a virtual cemetery for the soldiers of Company K, 24th Regiment, Iowa Infantry. (link is over on the right)

My ancestor, David Craig, was a corporal in the company along with his 4 brother-in-laws, the Crandall brothers -Alanson, Merrel, Wallace and Zanoni.

I'm researching the soldiers and have started a tree on ancestry.com with a record for each soldier of Company K. Check there for more info on each soldier.

I uploaded a hi-res video to youtube of the 1912 monument to the Soldiers of Company K in Wyoming, Iowa:

Thanks to all the friendly volunteers here on findagrave that helped find and photograph the headstones.

Hi Greg,

You took a headstone photo on memorial 102814727. Would you mind also adding it to memorial 14578469. It's actually for his mother, Rose.

I'm waiting for some updates, corrections & links to be made. Currently her last name is listed as Shotraw.

Thanks so much for everything!

RE: Marcus D Johnson parents edit
Greg,
Attached is a link to my tree. http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/54554847/family

1840 census in NY shows Moses with 5 in his household, although it doesn't list names. 1850, Marcus has married and is listed in the Tallman household. Moses' household lists all remaining spouse and sibling. By 1870 Marcus and Moses listed separately in Jones County ia.

By 1890 Marcus moves to Fremont county IA, bio listed in History of Femont County, confirms movement from NY to Jones County, then Femont County, Sylvia dies in Nebeaska.

Currently 12 trees list Moses as being Marcus' father.

RE: Catherine Callaghan Ford
Hi Greg,
I think I'm ready for a reply re: Catherine Callaghan Ford. First of all, I would like to recommend a book which I just received this past week. "The Story of Holy Name of Mary Parish 1837-2012" by Carson Murphy. It can be gotten at lulu.com. I paid $37.71 which included shipping. If you're in Canada, that price may be more or less. It contains 500 pages about each of the families who settled in Tyendinaga, Ontario, Canada and includes extensive family trees and photos. The section on the Callaghans goes from pgs. 73-106. It is quite inclusive about each of the brothers, including Thomas. It has been speculated that, indeed, Catherine was the sister of these three men. They all were born about the same time and lived adjacent to each other on acreage in Tyendinaga. However, I do not know this for certain nor does the book claim to know this for certain- only speculates.

No, I do not know the names of the parents of these children. It is speculated in the book that the oldest son, Denis, stayed behind to care for their elderly parents and did not arrive in Tyendinaga until 1840, along with Catherine and her husband, Patrick Ford. Many others from Ovens, County Cork came at that time, too. No one supplied the names of the parents. I was asked their names with my correspondence to the author but could not supply him their names either. It remains a mystery.

In the Ford Family section, I sent in the information on Michael Ford, son of Catherine Callaghan and Patrick Ford, beginning on page 177 and continuing through page 179. Those are my photos included, as well. I found several typographical errors when my information was transcribed, including on the photo of Anastasia Ford on pg. 179. She is the tall young lady on the left. However, the book is compelling and rich with history and stories of the Irish settlers in Ontario. I highly recommend it.

I would be happy to assist you in anyway I can with family history. Thank you for your correspondence.
