> Hi Kathy - I wonder if one of my McKinleys (James P) married one of your Buchers (Lizzie). Looks like he died young before they were married a year. The family of James McKinley lived on a farm in Grand Meadow Township, Clayton Co, Iowa. Some > family members are buried at St Peter's Catholic Church in Clermont, Fayette Co, IA. Based on James' birth date, I estimated Lizzie born 1866 which probably makes her too young to be your Eliza, maybe a niece? I you can place Lizzie in one of your families, I'd be interested in the info. The McKinley family was Scots-Irish Catholic as far as I know from Ballycastle/Rathlin Island, N. Ireland.
More info is on my webpage: http://www.avana.net/~mhook

I am hunting for *any* BUKER/BUCHER and/or MAKE info. My mom's family is
from Waseca Co., MN and I host that county on rootsweb.com
(http://www.rootsweb.com/~mnwaseca). My brother, Tom, hosts the Steele Co.,
MN web pages (http://www.rootsweb.com/~mnsteele).
Tom found a Waseca & Steele Co. history book that names our Henry BUKER as
having come from Clayton Co., IA. I would like to find the descendants of
Christopher, Eliza, Jerry and Mary BUKER/BUCHER. Henry, his wife, and
mother, are buried in Meridan Cemetery in Waseca Co., MN.
If someone has access to the 1870 Clayton Co. census, I would greatly
appreciate a look up on BUKER and MAKE.
>From History of Steele & Waseca Counties, Minnesota:
Henry Buker is a native of Germany, born May 14, 1837, and is the son of
Henry and Gertrude (Gotmon) Buker, who had a family of five children:
Christopher, Eliza, Henry, Jerry, and Mary. His father died in the old
country, and in 1861 the mother with her family came to America, first
settling in Clayton County, Iowa, where they remained some ten years. Henry
Buker commenced life for himself at the age of fourteen years, and has
always followed farming. In October, 1865, he was united in marriage with
Lena Make, who was born October, 8, 1849. In 1874 they moved to Waseca
County, where they settled on section 33, in Woodville Township, where they
now live, and where Mr. Buker owns some 510 acres of as fine land as lies
out doors. He and his wife are the parents of six children: William, born
June 24, 1866; Katie, October 16, 1867; Henry, August 15, 1870; John, March
15, 1871; Mary, October 23, 1872, and Anna, December 19, 1877. All the
children live with their parents. The family are members of the Lutheran
Church. Mr. Buker is a Republican in politics.
Many, many thanks and Best Regards,
Greetings Clayton County Listmembers!
I'm new to this particular list, and a "relatively" green amateur genealogist,
yet I've been a RootsWeb list member of many other fine lists for some time
I'm looking for my Highland & Illyria Twp., Clayton county kin connections.
I'd love to exchange genealogical kindnesses with anyone who may have access
to early volumes of Clayton County Histories (ca. 1882 ?), and copies or links
to land records (or data-bases)--as our local (CA) FHC, University & community
libraries are very limited in their Iowa resources!
We have many kin stemming from our Ulster Scot -(undocumented-family Bible)
b. abt 1830, Drumnastrade, Dungannon Middle Barony, Clonfeacle Civil
Parish, Dungannon Poor Law Union, Northern Ireland, UK.
m. BINNIE, Agnes or Elizabeth; Dundee, Kane, IL?
d. 14 Feb 1914?, Illyria, Clayton, IA, USA (owned 580 acres in sections 15,
& 18 of Highland Twp.--"Clayton County History, 1882"--one of first
settlers of the area in 1855) - (abt. 15 children)
We have family members living in Story county, and cousins (of this lineage)
still living in Volga, Clayton county and possibly in West Union, Fayette
--surnames connected to Clayton County families include
BINNIE, FAIRWEATHER, KERR, MEDBERRY, MUNCIE?, STENSLAND, YOUNG
