RE: John H Courll

No, I did NOT see the John H Courll in Oklahoma... so that pretty much tells me what I was guessing... John P Courll, the brother of Henry Courll, is the one buried in Illinois. Now if I could just figure out why there are 3 men's names on that one stone.. doesn't quite make sense to me...

RE: John Courll
There was also an older John Courll, born Ohio, I think the 1860 census said, showing this John Courll (older John Courll) living with Henry Courll and wife in Iowa, in 1860. John Courll had been married and had 2 children, a boy and a girl. The girl was born in 1859, but doesn't seem to show up in the 1860 census any where. She was raised by her maternal grandparents and stayed in Iowa. Her father, the older John Courll, just seems to have disappeared after the 1860 census. When I saw that John Courll in the cemetery, it made me wonder if it was the older John Courll, or the younger John Courll, that appears to be Henry's son. It would explain, I guess, why I can't find John Courll in any more Iowa census, but I am also not seeing him show up in the Illinois census either. Right now, he's sort of a mystery, as to what happened to him. His wife had died, apparently, by 1860. The family knew that his wife died and that the he was supposed to have taken his son (name unknown to me at this point in time) but left his daughter behind to be raised by her maternal grandparents.

RE: John Courll
Hi Julie,

I am not related. I am a volunteer, researching the family, trying to help a lady who is descended from likely that John Courll. Henry and Diana Courll had a son, John, but there was also an older John Courll that was living with Henry and Diana in the 1860C in Iowa. Then the family shows up in Livington Co, IL after 1860. Without a birth date for this John, I am not certain if that is the son, John, or the man that appears to be an older brother of Henry Courll.

Do you happen to know who might have cemetery records for this cemetery?

Thank you,
Brenda in Iowa

This is the John Courll I was talking about. I realized, after I asked my question, I had not given you enough information to know who I was talking about.

John Courll

I just spotted your posting of the tombstone of John Courll. Thank you for posting it. I see his name is on the stone with a couple other men. Any idea why these men share the same (large) stone?

Thank you,

RE: Mary Kaveney
Hi Julie,

I should have realized it was a different Mary. I have several Mary Kaveneys on my tree! Mary Bridget Waters Kaveney is another 2nd great grandmother of mine. I do have a more complete list of ten children I could add to her site and probably a picture of her grave. I'd be willing to manage her, too. Thanks for all you do--you do an excellent job!

RE: Mary Kaveney
Mary K. Kaveney was my mother. I tried searching for her on Find a Grave and did not find her. Her grave is in Resurrection Mausoleum in Romeoville, IL. She passed in 2013. I prefer her site be posted before I take over any management of it as I don't know the ins and outs of a new posting.

RE: Margaret Bannon
I'll agree to manage her site. I have been doing genealogy since January, so if I find any more information I can add it more easily. Thank you.
