I am a new subscriber. I am from Wisconsin and am currently working on a
branch that has taken me to Webster County, Iowa.
Is anyone on this list related to the name Derouchey? Joseph Derouchey to be
exact. He married Augustine O'Neil in Shullsburg, Lafayette County,WI. The
family moved to Centralia, Dubuque County
where Augustine died in 1878, Joseph remarried a woman named Mary? between
The Derouchey's left after 1880 for Fort Dodge area, Webster County, Iowa.
Joseph died Nov 29, 1896 in Webster County.
Will be glad to share what I have on Augustine O'Neil's background.
I am trying to find if this Joseph is a brother to my husband's great
grandfather, William Derocher.
Would like to correspond with any descendants of Thomas Flynn, Jr. born
Jackson County, Michigan in August of 1859.
Reportedly died at Fort Dodge in 1935. Maritial status unknown.
Brothers were prosperous ranchers in Montana.
Sisters and parents remained in Michigan.
I am looking for any information on Thomas Fredercik Jackson who
married Hattie Mc Nutt Ft. Dodge about 1884. They had the following
Earl, Dick, Raymond, Haze, and Allan. Any help will be appreicated in
tracking their history.
I've been busy lately and haven't had much time to sit
down at my computer (I apologize), so I thought I
should check in with my 2 lists.
I will repeat information here since we have several
new subscribers. When posting to a list, it is helpful
to give details about what information you have and
what you are looking for.
For example: My Burrell family moved to Webster County
just before the 1880 federal census (thank you, thank
you, thank you!!!). One child was just 1 month old at
the time of the census.
Here is the list from the census:
Now, the interesting part is that David, age 15 at the
time of this census, was unknown to our family in
modern times. This was the first time we knew he
existed. Lydia was married 3 times, the first was
apparently to a David Caylor. The information I have
says that William and Lydia were married in 1868,
which would indicate they could not have a 15-year-old
son. I am inclined to think that David was Lydia's son
by her first husband, in which case his name should be
In the 1885 Iowa State Census, the household is listed
Burrell, Liddia, 37
Taylor, David, 21 (misspelled Caylor?)
Burrell, William 15
Burrell, Walter, 12
Burrell, Bertha, 9
Burrell, Blanche, 4
Burrell, Lulu, 1
Baxter, John, 35
Hagnan, Fred, 55
Hagnan, Minne, 58
Backard, Dora, 83
Looks like Lydia was running a boardinghouse. No
mention of William Burrell, Sr. John Baxter is
important because Lydia married him in 1895.
As you can see, William Burrell Sr is not listed,
although the youngest daughter, Lulu, is 1 year old.
My mom was told by her grandmother, Augusta Burrell
(married to Walter) that Lydia had been divorced once
or twice. This was quite scandalous in those times.
So, you can see there are a lot of questions I need to
My specific questions in this case are:
Was Lydia married to David Caylor? (I haven't verified
this yet.) Was the son David (1880 census) her son by
David Caylor or by William Burrell? She married
William Burrell in 1868, so it looks like David would
have been about 3 by then.
Is her son David (Caylor?) the same David listed as
David Taylor in 1885 and as David Coyles in 1895
(where Lydia's son Walter was a member of his
What happened to William Burrell? He's not listed in
the 1885 census.
