I had previously been searching for THOMPSON and MONTGOMERY/TRAVIS in Willow
and Charter Oak, Crawford.
Now, I have found out that another (related) branch was there.
Frank WADDINGTON was born 1842 in England. He was married to Mary. They
came to the U.S. and had Henrietta (1865), Lucy (1867), Sarah Jane (26 Jul 1871),
and Pollie (1872) in Illinois. They lived in 1870 in Nunda, McHenry,
Frank remarried in 1878 Harrison County, IA to Angelina PRENTICE. They were
in Goodrich, Crawford, IA in 1880 and Willow, Crawford 1885-1908 (found in
listings). Prentice family also appears in the county. Frank died in 1916 in
Sarah Jane married William Ulysses Montgomery in 1894 in Iowa Falls, Hardin.
They are listed in 1895 Reeve, Franklin, IA census, although I have recorded
that they had William Raymond (1895) and Howard (1898) in Iowa Falls. She
died in 1918 Madelia, Watonwan, MN.
Anyone have more info/connection?
