This message was forwarded to the Polk-L mailing list. I don't have time
this morning to clean it up, but if it is true, it should be viewed by as
many genealogists as possible. It would be simple enough to check out, but I
just don't have the time!!
So, my fellow listers, caveat emptor.

There are several Wykle families still living in the Radcliffe area,
according to the Radcliffe Centenniel Book published in 1980. Two articles
do mention John Henry Wykle, one written about his son William F Wykle and
another written by a grandson. There is a lot of info about later
generations - I could scan them for you if you like. I would say chances are
good that there are still Wykle families in the area.
I am looking for some help finding the graves of my McMahon ancestors
who I have heard were buried in or near Ackley. They were Irish
Catholic and their names were Peter McMahon (died 1893) and his wife
Johanna (died 1890). Does anyone out there have a cemetery listing of
the Ackley Catholic cemetery?

I am looking for John Henry Wykle who was born in NY, Sept. 24, 1848. I
have heard the possiblity of him being raised in an orphanage in NY and that
he ran away and changed his name. His name may have been John Henry Wylkie
when he was younger. He married Sarah Eller and moved to IA. I would like
to know his ancestors and if he changed his name. He died with the Wykle
name in 1922. Could you help me?
I am seeking any information on William J. Polk, father of John Polk Hazard
(JPH). Mother's name is Mary White. JPH was born in Indiana c. 1850,
reportedly Boone Co. We are saying "Polk" for William's last name as the best
guess as the handwriting is not perfectly clear. There is a slight chance
that it could also be "Pock" or "Poek."
We had heard, via family history, that JPH's name was "turned around" because
his family hated the politics of relative James Knox Polk. It seemed a
far-fetched notion, but we recently received a copy of JPH's marriage license
(second marriage) where he gives the above names for his parents. His place
of birth, IN, residence Alliance, NE. His age is listed as 61, 63, and 65 --
take your pick.
This second marriage, 1 June 1914, was to Mrs. Laura L. Rauer (again, the
handwriting!), born in Ohio, residing in Merriman, NE. Her parents were
Isaiach Johnson and Nancy Winter. (The typewriter should have been invented
His first marriage was to Jessie A. Cady, on 27 Nov. 1885, in her home area
of Hardin Co., Iowa. They had three children: Mabel, Maude, and Clarence
who was my f-i-l. Jessie went home to mother, and so JPH divorced her. Thus
Clarence never knew his father. We know where Maude went, but we have no info
Do any of these names sound familiar? Folks who have names on various lists
and books, could you check for me? Thanks.
