I have several of questions I would like to ask you.
1. I note that you have that he is a member of the GAR. I have been searching for years for his CW records, but have not been able to find them. I know from the old cemetery records when they were recorded back in the New Deal works, that there had been a GAR emblem on his grave, but that later it was no longer there. Can you add any information for me?
2. Do you know what is referred to in their lives when a "severe hardship" happened to them and they almost went back to Edgar Co, IL. but in the end, decided to stay in Wayne Co, IA?
3. Do you know where Leah Hanks, daughter of the first wife, and sister of Keziah, Lydia? I lose her in the census. I know she is listed in James Knight's probate. I cannot find any marriage record for her in Iowa or Missouri.
4. Do you have any pictures you would be willing to share? Our line has none, as there was a fire at my g grandmothers, and all the pictures and genealogy and Bibles that Lucile had were destroyed.
I would love anything which you would be willing to share with me. Anything I might have that would be of interest to you, I would also share.
My Line: Isaac George Hanks and Keziah Knight l Estella Hanks and James Monroe Rush l Lucile Rush and Lewis Wilson Ross l Zelphia Donna Ross and Clarence Ralph Leverich l My Parents l Me
Since your surname is Hanks I am assuming you are a relative. So we are related. I come thru Isaac and Keziah's daughter Estella who married James Monroe Rush, who had a daughter Lucile who married Lewis Wilson Ross. Lucile had a daughter, Zelphia Ross Leverich, who is my grandmother.
I was going to ask you for transfer of ownership of Isaac and Keziah since they are my ggg grandparents. If you are not directly related, would you transfer them?
I look forward to hearing from you. I have a couple of questions I would like to ask you, but I will email you privately.
