Wanted to say thanks to Jean Leeper for the very excellent anh expert help
helping research the Surname Pendroy in the Knoxville genealogy room. I was
there on a short trip from Colorado.
Also wanted to invite every one to check out my Pendroy surname History site
which contains some other surname information mostly of pree 1900 around
around Red Rock, Dunreath, Otley and Summit and Red Rock township Township
and Monroe Iowa area. I have a search engine which will search all of the
numerous linked pages. You can search for a surname very quickly. There is
contact info on the site. Used to live in the area and worked for Rolscreen
for 9 years, 1977 - 1986.
I am searching for information about the family of William Henry
Lindsay, b.30 May,1815, in Cleveland Co.NC. to James and Isabela Wright
Lindsay. He married Nancy -----, lived in Marion Co.Iowa and children
include - Sarah J., Mary J. - Rachel G. - Cicero - and Milissa A..
According to my record the daughter Rachel married ----- Langley and
lived in Juniata, NE. Can anyone help on this, James was a brother to
my ancestor, Dr.William Lindsay(1795-1876). Thanks, Ellie
I'm trying to find ANY info on Mary Caulkins and Newton Neal. I have her obituary--she was born about 1845, died Dec. 11, 1914. If Mary is who I think she is, this same Mary was in Marion Co., Indiana Twp. in the 1870 census with her brother William and his wife Ellen/Nellie and worked as a millener, 24 yrs. old and born in IL.
WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW--
Mary's parents' names --that would prove who she is.
Mary and Newton Neal's marriage date and place--I'm guessing about 1878 in Marion Co. Did a relative serve as a witness?
What do census records have on them? 1880, 1900, 1910
Are there any newspaper ads or articles about the millener business?
Newton's obituary--died about 1900
Any info on their children--son Pearla/Pearly/Purley, daughters Maggie and Nannie, two more daughters that died young
Harriet Caulkins married Daniel J. Neal. What relationship is Daniel to Newton? (Harriet and Mary were first cousins, I believe.) Anyone out there who has done research on the Neal family?
I know I'm asking a lot here and don't expect anyone to do my research for me but I'm hoping to get just a couple pieces of info on Mary to prove her relationship in the Caulkins family. Any info would be appreciated.
I found all the people who I came in contact with in Marion Co. to be very pleasant and helpful. There was so much information for my line (CAULKINS) that I'll have to go back another time. I didn't have enough time in three days to do all that needed to be done.
One of the most helpful things was the large collection of obits in the genealogy section of the Knoxville library. They also have some books on vital records that are copies of the original records. Hope this info is of help to someone.
I made some great finds and had a wonderful time with my newfound cousins (4th cousins once removed) who came from Minneapolis to meet me and my dad. We did lots of looking at cemeteries, including one that was landlocked and so overgrown that we almost missed the few stones. It was, as my cousin described, a "near religious experience" to find the stone of his 2nd great grandfather. And in my heart I know his father, my 4th great grandfather must be buried there with no marker since he was on that farm when he died.
Thanks, Marion County, for a great time!

I received the following message about Andersonville Prison. My great
grandfather was a prisoner there and I was able to look him up on line!
It may be worth taking a look.
I know this information might not relate to your county but you might
want to include my offer somewhere. Im looking to add my offer to as many
Gen Web sites as I can. I live 40 miles from the Andersonville Civil War
Prison Site in Macon County Georgia and I have had a very sucessful
several months doing volunteer lookups on the onsite database as well as
a CD I purchased there so I can do lookups here at home.There is no
charge for my
lookups and all one has to do is ask. There is also an online address you
can see the records at http://www.corinthian.net/mccc/plookup.htm Just
enter the name and search. If you believe your ancester was there and
isnt found, I can check my CD as It shows names by alphabet and I can
check for alternate spellings. I have found several this way.I also take
pics of graves for a very small fee. I have other pics on disc I have
taken about the cemetery and memorials that I will send by email also at
no cost. Im having a enjoyable time doing this and am keeping up with the
responce daily. There are 13000 names on record and of the 13000 who
died , there are only 460 unknowns.
Please email me if there is anything I can do....

MEYDEN, CORNELLISEN, and NEELS,in Mahaska and AALBERS in the general
area. These are neighboring counties and part of the greater Pella
My other lines go directly to the Netherlands.
I'm especially interested in Maria Schreuder. She came to the USA
after being widowed by Jacob DuPree and Pieter Klaaren and settled in
Pella in November 1871 as Maria Hollebrands. I haven't been able to
find any information on her before her marriage to Pieter Klaaren in
Thanks in advance!
