If anyone has any photographs of George Mann and/or his wife, Helen (nee Powers), that they would like to share, I'd be very interested. Gad is my great grandfather. All the family photos that my uncle had, and the family Bible, were lost in a fire ages ago, and I wonder if any memorabilia exist in some distant cousin's possessions.
I have a Pearl Allen who had been living with William Singleton and his wife, Orilla Simonson in the 1900 census listed as a niece to William.
With the help of Sharon Kerridge, I have found she might be the daughter of Edward and Orpha Allen. What I need to know is if these are her parents and how they would be related to William and Orilla?
Any help is appreciated. Any suggestions on where to look for the answer would be helpful.
Back in 1904, my grandmother was supposed to have been adopted by the family of William Singleton and his wife, Orilla Simonson Singleton. Upon the death of his wife, my grandmother found out the adoption was never finalized.
I know that William Singleton was the son of John and Eliza Singleton. I know that William has the following siblings: Elizabeth, Lillie, Rose and Frances. Would anyone know what might have happened to his sisters and who they might have married.
In the 1855 census for Ridgeway, I also found an Elizabeth Singleton, who is listed as a widow. I am trying to figure out if she is the mother of John and if the Hannah who married William Housel is the sister of John.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am working on a family of Cornelius Simonson. I found his burial record in Yates Center Cemetery. According to the information listed, he was married twice.
However, in the census records, it looks like he was married three times instead. His first wife, Frances M Bird died in April 1876. In the 1880 and 1892 census on this site, he is married to a lady named Sarah (age 54 in 1880 and 67 in 1892), but I did not find any information regarding her on your site. In 1900 and until he died in 1903, he was married to a Lady named Lillian (age 47 in 1900). Would any one know what happened to her?
Could someone help me unravel this mystery?
Hi Bob - Certainly sounds like something we should have on our website.

OK, so apparently I sent out a blank email yesterday. I don't know how that happened-- so sorry. I thought I was doing a good deed by passing this information along. I didn't know I was going to mess it up. I sent a couple emails yesterday and they were all blank. Weird, huh?
I found the Orleans county 1890 Civil War census on CD yesterday, and wanted to pass along the information in case anyone here was interested. It looks interesting if you have Civil War ancestors in the area.
