Has anyone a similar experience with nicknames -- I've recently discovered
ancestor through a tombstone (headstone) inscription located in Woodbury
County, Iowa, USA, which was written:
Jirah (Irish) Carter
This person was born c. 1800 and I understand that "Jirah" is an old Biblical
name. Can anyone shed light on why "Irish" would be written in parenthese?
I am guessing that this man went by the nickname of "Irish" because he came
from Ireland.....? Is there perhaps another reason he might be called
this? Any additional thoughts on the subject would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance,

Does anybody on this list have an 1891 or (later) census for Woodbury or a
directory for Sioux City pre-1920. I am looking (really hard) for a Cremin
family and can't find a thing, in particular for a Dr. Joseph Slocum Cremin --
and I could sure use any help available.
I have a new AOL address:
DAZZLEDAY(a)AOL.COM(Janette Nunez)....This is Janette's personal e-mail
address. I will be able to be reached on LUTONIUM(a)AOL.COM also, but I will
be using DAZZLEDAY to send out my mail.
Laura, thanks for the information....I am passing this on to all of my list
mates! Someone will find it useful. Did you find any Days from our tree
there? None of the Days listed looked familiar. There were quite a few
Maddux(ox) as well, although not familiar in my line. Sincerely, Janette
