stroud cates
I'm trying to figure out who Stroud Cates was! My great grandfather was Cyrus Strother "Straud" Cook, son of Charles & Nancy Willis Cates of DeKalb Co MO. I do find a William Cates in census with Elizabeth, who look like these people but nowhere do I find Stroud. Can you help me figure this out? (Charles & Nancy had dau Sintha who m. a Weese)

RE: Coon Family of Coons Run
Hi, thanks a lot for all of this insight. I know that Joseph and Elizabeth had a large family but I never got around to tracking down all of the children. So, it's great to hear from you.

1834 sounds like the same year that I have for Joseph's land grant. I haven't found very many Coons who migrated to Brown Co., IN. There was a George Coon who came later and is related some way. There's also a Skinner family who settled near Ruth Coon Tutterow. Phillip and Hannah Coon Skinner lived just a couple of miles away. Hannah may be related some way.

I doubt if Kansas has a lot of records prior to 1900. Sometimes, military records will have additional information about family members. I know I found a few odd pieces of information that way. A lot of older graves are unmarked. Maybe they were once marked with wooden crosses. You might try old newspapers or funeral home records if there were any around at that time. I just looked at something that said the population of Laclede in 1910 was 76.

RE: Use photo request
Thank you.

If I may I will use the photo showing Jimmy, Jim, W J and James Eldridge.


Please let me know if this is not OK and I will remove the photo. I trust I have the caption correctly shown.

I should also clarify that I am not knowingly connected by 'blood' to this Eldridge family, it's just one of a hundred or so I've researched as part of my one name genealogical study.

Finally I only have access to the Library Edition of Ancestry meaning I am unable to see Ancestry member trees.

I was adding pictures of vets in the Highland cemetery and noticed you already had Daisy and Edwards pics up. Are you a relative of theirs? I can look up the obits and send them to you if you would like.
