I'm researching several lines around Linn and Buchanan Counties. My
question today is concerning the Crossfields. Does anyone have
information on death or burial of:
John Crossfield Circa 1803 in Virginia, died after 1880
Elizabeth Lott Crossfield circa 1811 probably KY died after 1880
or information on birthplace of:
Eva Crossfield b.Aug 1890, Neb
Ruth Crossfield b. Oct 1893 Neb
James Crossfield b. July 1895 in Amlet?
Any information would be appreciated as one never knows what clue will
lead me to the information I need.
I note on my map that there is a village named ROWLEY just East of IA hiway
150, in Buchanan Co. Anyone know the history and who it was named after? I
have family by that name who may have moved to IA from Preble
Co OH in the mid 1850's.

My GGGrandfather and family disappearedfrom Preble Co OH in the mid 1850's.
Some family lore says they went to
Iowa, but I haven't any proof. I read on the Brethren Mail List that there
was a large migration from western Ohio to the Butler/Buchanan Co area in
1850s, so that's why I'm looking there. These are the folks I'm trying to
Andrew SHAFFER (or perhaps SHEFFER) born about 1810 VA
Sarah/Sally PENCE born about 1805 VA
Dau Jane SHAFFER born abt 1830, OH married Daniel SHAFFER 1853 Preble
Dau Delila SHAFFER, born abt 1833, OH married William CASSELL1850 Preble.
William and Delila did not leave the Preble/Montgomery Co OH area.
Andrew was the son of Michael SHAFFER and Nancy MUNTZ. He had two younger
brothers Ira and Daniel Washington SHAFFER or SHEFFER.
Andrew and his father and brothers were in Preble Co OH before 1816, when
Catherine HUDLOW. So Andrew's mother, Nancy, probably died in VA. Michael
had farms in both Preble Co OH and Cass Co IN when he died in 1867 in Preble
Co. Several of the children from his second family were purportedly born in
Cass Co. Andrew was mentioned in Michael's will, so he perhaps was still
alive in 1867.
Other than the girls' marriages, the 1850 census is the last record, of
Andrew and Sally, I have been able to come up with.
Ring any bells?

My ancestors lived between Buchanan and Linn Counties. Currently I'm
working on my Lott line. To do this I need some information on John and
Elizabeth Crossfield. They probably died before 1900. Anyone else
working on/or have info on this couple?
Looking for the children of James McCartney and Mary Devlin... Lizzie McCartney married John O'Brien and lived in Independence in 1892... Sara McCartney married Bernard Donough, Mary Ann married William French and lived in Gilpin CO.
