I have a Russell Alexander Weir in Buchanan Co. in about 1865. He had a
brother by the name of Samuel. He was in the Civil War on his papers he said
Samuel was in Buchanan Co. in 1865. Russell A. was born in 1848 or 1850. He was
born in Bartholomew Co. Indiana. Russell A. was found in 1870 in Kansas
census I'm hunting for his parents or any relatives. Thank you. Veldonna(a)aol.com
I'm trying to gather information on my great-great grandparents, Lorenzo
Cleghorn Peyton and Louisia M. Robison Peyton (she went by Mariah). Mariah died
in Sutherland, Nebraska in 1910. They left Iowa in 1886 for Dawes County,
Nebraska with their four children.
They are listed in the 1880 census in Homer.
Specifically, I'm interested in getting information on the Robisons or
Robinsons. Mariah was born in New York. I've seen their name as both but I think
it is Robison - if that could be confirmed that would be great. I have no
information on them except from the census. I have written to the Buchanan
Genealogical Society to try and get Lorenzo and Mariah's wedding certificate.
I believe Mariah had siblings and maybe parents in Homer - maybe Lucius
Robison/Robinson (and wife Fannie), John Robison/Robinson (and wife Letitia), and
Jerome Robison/Robinson (and wife Vina). These people are listed next to them
in the census and were also born in New York.
Were Henry and Chista Robison/Robinson her parents? They are listed as
living by Lorenzo and Mariah in 1880 and were aged 76 and 69.
Anybody else have info on these Robisons?
Thanks!! Allison Jenkins
I am looking for any information regarding James and Sarah Ellen Flanigan.
Both Irish born, emigrated to Ontario, Canada in the 1840's and then to Iowa
in the early 1860's. They are buried at St. John's Catholic Cemetery,
having died in 1868 and 1870. Their oldest son Michael lived in
Independence in the late 1860's and early 1870's and married Hetty Tucker
(listed in various records as Francis, Anne, and Nettie). James had 2 other
sons, William (my great grandfather) and Carons (who lived in Ft. Dodge in
the same time period) and 2 daughters, names unknown. I am looking for any
information on this family that any one might have. Michael and Nettie and
their daughter Mary appear in the 1870 census in Independence, but moved to
Nebraska by 1875. I would love to find out when the family arrived in Iowa,
where in Canada they came from, and what happened to the 2 daughters that my
grandmother believes they had.
I have already gotten everything available from the Buchanan County
Genealogical Society on the family, but am hoping perhaps someone out there
has a missing piece of information!! Thanks!!
Family of William and Sarah Shultz - moved to Buchanan Co bet 1860-1869
Moved to Mills Co. probably after the death of William Shultz 1883-1895.

It is time once again for our twice-a-year Roll Call. As most of you
know who have been on the list a while, Roll Calls are conducted once
between Christmas and the new year and once after Memorial Day.
To participate in the roll call, send a message to the list which meets
the following guidelines:
1.) Includes in the subject line the words ROLL CALL and the surname
such as: "Roll Call: DOE"
2.) Include in the message a brief synopsis of the information you have
on the family as well as any additional information you are seeking.
3.) Include your EMAIL ADDRESS; replies to roll call postings should be
4.) Include the URL of your genealogy webpage, if you have one.
Please keep your messages short, but include any pertinent information
that would help another reader determine whether or not they have
information which would pertain to your line.
Also, remember that these messages are ARCHIVED through rootsweb, so
even if you don't find the information you are looking for now, someone
doing a search may find your message later and be able to assist you.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask.
The roll call will run from May 26 until June 2, 2003 at midnight, EST.
Please don't post roll call messages after that time. Also, please
remember that we do a roll call twice a year and that only the
listmanager can call a roll call. This is because, as new members join
the group, if each one posted a roll call, that would take up a great
deal of the lists' time.
