Sarah Gould
Hi, Dennis. Is it at all possible that your Sarah Gould who married John Bell is the same one as the one in my tree? I have them as parents of Oscar Gould Bell, who married into my Barton family. Elizabeth M Barton Bell was buried in Wapello, IA. Any reply is appreciated. Thanks. Judy in Ohio

RE: Cotter and Related Families
Dennis, Yes I am interested.. I have some rather recent relatives as well as the old ones. There is a tree on rootsweb that I hope you will look up. Just type in Rebecca Ellis, because there are fewer people to search thru, and when you get all the tree's up, scroll down on the right of the screen to a contributer "doile". That is my maiden name.

I have a new computer,two weeks, that I think I am gong too hate it is so slow. And it is an HP. So until I figure out why it has already locked up on me, that will keep you busy. lol And you can check out y profile on this too.

Please write back on this, I can't even get an email set up on this yet. And a tec couldn't either. ????

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank-you for the recent Memorial for my 3rd gr Grandmother. I believed she was buried in Story County, but could not be certain she had a grave stone. One of her daughters is Margaret Ellison [1836-1900] # 45237918 whom she was living with during the 1880 Census, Story County. Mary's Husband William Bishop is bur. in Van Buren or Davis County Iowa? or here,having died many years prior. Since it is very late, I will have to help link the immediate family at another time. Gravers have been very active this May and June, and as always I Thank-you for your time.

RE: William Shelley
Hi Dennis
Wanted to touch base with you and see if you have any new information... I have an idea that I wanted to share with you - let me know what you think? On Family Search I typed in last name Shelley (no first name) born in Iredell county, NC and place of residence Henry County, IN. and several Shelleys came up, on James Shelley census page a son was listed as born in Ohio, I know that William Shelley family traveled to Ohio ( found this reading his obit)William was not listed on this census as he was already married. all the other children listed were born in IN. I believe - Wm. was two yrs of age when family left NC for OH. Its the best lead I've had, I know I need more to go on - let me know if you have anything on this James Shelley b. 1805 married to Isabel( first wife ) also had second wife. I think he died after 1850 and before 1860.
