Bio and Links
Bio Photo Tombstone tourist, taphophile, cemetery enthusiast, genealogist, graver. I am a United States Army Female Veteran born in Germany to an English-German-Danish-Irish-Czechoslovakian-American father and German mother. Tenth great-granddaughter of George Soule, who arrived in this country aboard the Mayflower. I am researching the families of my fourth great-grandfathers, Henry George Lossing and Noah Jacob Huss. Noah had 200+ great-great-grandchildren and I am trying to get each and every one linked to him.

Please stop by my mom's page, Ingrid Koss, to leave a flower, she loved the color purple. Mom is the only person listed on Findagrave with the last/maiden name of Bläwert.

Each generation of my family has had a member who served in the military. Having served in the military myself, I have a soft spot for all who did as well. Please leave a note for Captain Neil Stanley Bynum. I wore his MIA bracelet until it broke into pieces. If you manage a veteran's memorial page please remember to thank him/her.

CHECK YOUR EDITS TAB ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE! If you find any errors with the memorials I manage, please SEND-A-SAC. Corrections left on my contributor page will not be acknowledged and will be deleted.

If you would like me to add an obituary from a published media, please edit the obituary and exclude the names of living family. I will not post cut and paste obituaries from newspaper obits or funeral home websites without permission of the author. Obits added to the flower section will be reported to Admin for removal. I will ask you first to remove any death certificate you post to a memorial I create. If you will not remove the DC, I will have Admin do so.

There are a few individuals who appear to not want to be bothered with suggestions and being contacted about "their" memorials, but they don't hesitate in contacting you in regard to yours. If you are one of those few who wish to remain anonymous, then it is my wish that you stay anonymous by not contacting me.

John Fox McIntosh
Red,

Emma or Emily McIntosh was born in 1848. I think that I misstated that her birth was in 1853.

John Fox McIntosh
Dear Red,

The mother of John Fox McIntosh is Jane Peebles born 1821 in New York and death unknown. Thomas McIntosh married her in about 1856. No divorce record found from his first wife Catherine Blue McIntosh. Thomas McIntosh was sued by his son William A McIntosh in Herkimer County, New York in Oct. 1855 for property taken when he left the family. Thomas was forced to return the property to William A.

The story has been told by the word of mouth [no written history has been found] that after Catherine Blue McIntosh had her last child with Thomas [Rosette McIntosh-b 1853]that the doctor told her that she could have no more children or she would die trying to do so. Thomas wanted more children and left the family some time after the time that the 1855 New York State Census was taken and Oct. 1855 when William sued Thomas. Thomas was found on the 1860 New York Census in Riga, Monroe County, New York with Jane and two of the five children that he had with Jane. Emily his daughter with Catherine was also on the 1860 New York Census with Jane and Thomas. John Fox was not on the U S Census till 1870 with Thomas and Jane in Clear Creek Twsp.,[near Clyde] Sandusky County, Ohio.

The story goes on about William A and his brother Daniel McVicar McIntosh left Herkimer County, New York, probably in the spring of 1856 and traveled to Illinois. They spent some time in Illinois but by the spring of 1857 they were in Kansas City, Missouri. William A did not think that the land was good for farming and went south along the Kansas border with his brother and homesteaded land 8 miles north of Fort Scott, Kansas in Bourbon County. William joined the 6th Kansas Vols. at the outbreak of the Civil War in July 1861. This unit became the 6th Kansas Calvary in March 1862 and he was mustered out as he was in a infantry company that was recruited as a Home Guard Unit. William and his second wife were given Civil War Pensions. Sometime in the fall of 1861 he received a letter from home that his sister Emily was sold by her father Thomas as an indentured servant. Daniel left for New York immediately. As the story goes Daniel kidnapped Emily under a hail of gunfire from the owner in the middle of the night and brought her, his mother and all but one of his siblings who was married at the time back to Kansas. During Daniel's absence William got married to the 12 year old next door neighbors daughter. The father was in the same company as William and must of gave consent. William and Elmira had their first child when she was 14 years old. All of William's brothers and sisters except the one who was married and left were on the 1865 Bourbon County, Kansas Census. The married sister and her husband was in Bourbon County, Kansas by 1870 and was on the 1870 census. After William's first wife died in 1888 he went to Wood County, Ohio to visit two of his daughters who were married in Kansas but went to Ohio with their husbands. It is said that he also visited Thomas. This was the first and only time that he saw Thomas and his new family after Thomas left Catherine and married Jane. Thomas died in 1891 in Clyde, Ohio and is buried in Bakerstown Cemetery.

John Fox McIntosh would of been William's half brother. The rest of the Thomas McIntosh second family would of been half brothers or sisters.

Thomas McIntosh is my gg grandfather and William is my great grandfather.
