Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for over 25 years. I have researched and compiled the Schoville family history and the Potter family history.
My parents were from Soldiers Grove, Crawford Co., WI; Readstown and Viroqua, Vernon Co., WI so my research takes me to the southwest corner of Wisconsin in the counties of Crawford, Vernon, Richland and Grant.

Names that are on in the Schoville family are Schoville and the variations with and without the H or the E; Singles, Hall, Hill, Hull, Ward, Knause, Nevil, Ayers.
Names in the Potter family are the Potter, Wilkinson, Crook, Hutchison, Ward, Aikens, Hall, Hill, Livermore, Anderson, Harris, Sutherland and Barlow.

Both of the families came from the East...Ohio, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island and Massachusetts- Warren, Cowdrey, Ackley, Barnes, other spelling of my paternal grandfather's last name Schoville (and was spelled several ways- Scoville, Scovill, Scovil); Proctor, Stevens, Pike, Church, Cleveland, Brigham, Keyes; Councilman, Hathaway, Chase.

Then there is my husbands family which includes Buchanan, Peterson, Dotson, Kennedy, Daniels, Phillis, Dodd, Willey, Ackley, Horan, Stone, Stallard, Chesley, Osborn.

Proof of parents
Hi, I'm Claudia H Grissom/Ward my father is the son of James Edward Grissom and Lillie Mae Hicks/Grissom who is the daughter of Lillie Ann West and Martin D Hicks. Lillie Ann West is the daughter of James J West and Caroline Langley/West. To my knowledge they had only 3 daughters,Sarah Caroline West/Singles, Lillie Ann West/Hicks, and Eldorado Jane West/Faust. However, a Mary E West Find-a-Grave #74545715 is listed as a 4th daughter but I find no sources to back that up. My father's Ancestry family tree doesn't list her either. Please help me by giving me solid proof and sources showing she is in fact a child of James J and Caroline Langley/West.
My father passed away in 2014, so I cant ask him about this person someone added to our family tree without any sources to show she is our relation.
I also dispute James J West married a 4th time as 1870 US Federal Census- Lodi, Columbia County, Wisconsin, list him as widowed and living with his daughter from his first marriage,Martha Jane West/Hanks and her family. James has 2 of his daughters, Sarah C age 12 and Eldorado age 8 with him. Lillie Ann West age 11 is living with family according to the same 1870 Census, an Alexander Ferguson, a 54 year old Blacksmith and his wife, Margery Ferguson age 50.
Where is Mary E West? She is not listed with the Ferguson's or James J West. In 1870 she would be only 6 years old. Caroline died of stomach cancer and probably suffered from that a while so not likely she had a child in 1864 but I may be wrong. I want my tree to be correct with sources to back up lineage. I appreciate any light you may be able to shed on this situation.
Thank you, Claudia Helen Grissom/Ward

Permission to use photo and some of the written.
First of all I would like to thank you so very much for posting all the Memorials of the Petersen family. I am Carl Marinus Petersen's great granddaughter. Emil Bay Petersen was my grandpa. I do not own a picture of my Aunt Alice and had started posting copies of the obituaries on my geneology site so the rest of my family can learn about them. Then I thought I should get your permission. I can credit you for the information. Would it be ok to use the information you posted?

I have looked for years on more information on Carl. You are an answer to my prayers. Thank you so much. Also I have a picture of him and Johanne holding 2 of Aunt Marie's children if you would like a copy.

Thank you again,
Cathleen Allen
