Someone responded to my query about McClaran (any spelling) and included an
attachment. Something seemed to be wrong with the message -- perhaps there
was a virus in the attachment -- and my computer seemed to shut down. There
have been so many viruses recently on other lists I'm on that I was afraid
that was what the problem was.
Would the person who sent the message please let me know if everything was
okay and send the message again. I very much appreciate the effort to send
the material and would like to receive it again.
Thanks very much,
Could someone look at the 1870 census and tell me if there is anyone there
with a name spelled anything like that shown above? His name was Alfred and
his wife's name was Rebecca. He sold land in Mercer County, Missouri, and
the deed indicated he was "of Marion County, Iowa."
If he doesn't appear on the census, perhaps someone on the list has other
knowledge of this family and could suggest other places to search for him in
Thanks very much for your help.
I am seeking information concerning Thomas and Mary Montgomery Karr,
sometimes spelled Kerr. One of their daughters, Mary married in 1839 in Ohio
James M. Brouse the son of Peter and Rebecca.
I believe Thomas Karr died prior to 1860 and Mary Montgomery Karr could be
the one who died 30 August 1876 and is buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetery. I
don't know the location of this cemetery.
The Brouse appear in the census through 1880 in Perry County. Are their
cemetery listings to help me determine their death dates?
Would welcome suggestions and help to trace these people further.
I've updated the Marion County pages this evening. Here is a summary of the
There are 41 new surnames and Daniel I. Kennedy, Thomas Kennedy, John Shaw,
and John J. Wilcut are the latest additions to the Marion County On-Line
I am pleased to announce 4 new boards for Marion County!!! These boards have
been developed by people that care about Iowa and how the information you
share is used. The information you share will never be sold or transferred.
These boards belong to the IAGenWeb Project and will always be under the
control of that group!
Post your Marion County research queries on the Marion County Queries board.
Post your Marion County obituaries on the Marion County Obituaries board.
Post your Marion County biographies on the Marion County Biographies board.
Post all other Marion County documents on the Marion County Documents board.
I will continue to have a link to the Marion County, Iowa Board located on
Ancestry.com for read-only access. I have lost most of my ability to manage
these boards and I ask that you start using the boards listed above. It will
be impossible for me to physically move all of the information from the
board on Ancestry to the new system because I do not have access to the
data. It's time for a fresh start!
I am extremely excited about these four new boards. The first three are very
similar to what most of you had been used to prior to June of this year. I
was extremely disappointed that RootsWeb gave control of those particular
boards to Ancestry.com. The fourth board is a generic documents board that
will allow the posting of any type of genealogical document from bible
records, deeds, marriage records, wills, etc. It's up to you to be creative!
I have a marriage record that someone sent me back in February that I plan
on posting later this evening. Please give these boards a try and give me
your feedback. I have a direct link to people that are responsible for
developing these boards and I know that they will take all suggestions
As always, there's new people to this list. Please take a moment to
introduce yourself and let everyone know the Marion County surnames you are
