RE: Fanny Ford Mitchell
Hello... I'm sorry for the extended delay in replying to your inquiry. Although I have no ironclad proof of the family relationships there is significant circumstantial evidence to back up my grandmother Ora's assertion.

On the 1860 US Census Robert Ford is listed as living with Richard and Eliza (Ford) Stear. Their farm was adjacent to that of William and Fanny (Ford) Mitchell.

More compelling though is that they are all buried at Christ Church Limestone along with Robert's sons James and John. There are many other Fords in Peoria County, but these are the only ones buried at Christ Church.

I have also found nothing suggesting anything contrary to this premise. Definitive proof will likely come when I get around to researching the baptismal records from England.

Again, sorry for keeping you waiting so long. I'll let you know when I find out more.

did you receive any info on this memorial? i can check the bourbon co genealogy records, they have most of the crawford county records. death cert should be available from funeral home records - at least that is true in allen and bourbon counties. not certified but a free copy. and probate records, if any, should be availble at the courthouse. missouri death records are online, kansas is not. and missour death certs are online. so you could search to rule or confirm missouri death.

pre 1910 missouri records link:

death certs online only begins 1910:

RE: McPakes
My Owen McPake & his wife Mary had 8 children but only 3 lived to adulthood. Only 1 girl (died young) and the rest were boys. Mary died in 1904 with 3 young boys who were sent to an orphanage for boys. According to records I've found, Owen could not provide for them. These boys were 2nd cousins of my maternal grandmother. Joseph McPeck was my Godfather, served in WW I and is buried at Mays Landing, NJ.

The boys all were glass blowers, many of the Irish on this side were in the same trade. All 3 boys never married. Eugene (Gene) lived in Phila & also in Millville NJ. He may have had a child in Phila before moving out of state according to the senior members of my family. I have never found any evidence of this, yet. Alex and Joe had no children.

The father of Owen, Henry McPake, lived on Naudain St for years with his 2 daughters who also did not marry. Joe McPeck often talked of visiting this house as a child. Owen did go back to live there after the boys were sent away. This family had no money and I'm sure they were renting homes all their lives.

Joe did run away from St John's orphanage & never returned according to their records I obtained more than 20 years ago. He went to live with my grandmother & her family, I guess they were the only ones who took him in. Later in life he worked as an electrician in a hospital in Phila. He never talked about his childhood. He looked like Fred Astaire. He could have been his double. I wish I knew more about this family and how long they have been in the Phila area. No idea beyond Henry.

I did look for more McPake's today and entered a few more memorials. I will add more as I come across them.

RE: McPakes
I looked at the other obit & saw the relationship. I found it interesting that someone lived to be over 100 that long ago.

RE: McPakes
You may be the link I need in Ireland! Fr McPake was the brother of Owen McPake, who would be my Grandmother's Great Uncle. Try the surname McPeck & McPack. I have found the spelling has changed over the years.

My Godfather is Joseph McPeck, son of Owen. Somewhere along the way the spelling did change. They were a very poor family, the ones I'm related to from PA.

Owen's wife was Mary McGahey. I have copies of census records for this family from PA. As far as we know none of them left the Phila area. It's entirely possible some of them did to find work. Who knows.

How did you hear of Fr McPake & that story?

RE: McPakes
I am related to an Owne McPake from Phila PA. This name is so unusual. As far as we know we do not have any relatives in the state of IL.

The Owen McPake I am related to was the brother of a Rev Henry McPake who died in the late 1890's in Phila. Wish I could be of more help.

Are your McPake's from the East coast?
