Diehl, Jonathan C.

I'm looking for information on Jonathan C. Diehl born in about 1827 or 1828. He was married to Susannah or Susan Coates or Coots. He was killed in a barn raising accident in 1870. I am looking for more information on him and on his spouse. I believe she later married Solomon Nycum. We are unable to trace back either of their lineages. Her father may have been John Coates. She may have had a sister named Polly Coates and brothers named Charles and Adam Coates. Read More

Death Records for Daniel and Matilda Leggett

Daniel and Matilda were in their 60's in the 1870 census. They had been in Copiah County for many years. I can't find them in 1880, so I am guessing they died there. I would very much like death and/or burial information.  Thanks much,

Birth Record Naming Parents of Charlotte Wallis Tucker b. Roxbury 1809

I am a volunteer researcher for The Morse Society and I need documentation for the birth of Charlotte Wallis Tucker.  According to the proposed lineage I'm trying to confirm, Charlotte was the daughter of Martha (Morse) and Lewis Tucker.  To the best of my knowledge she was born in Roxbury about 1809.  I've been unable to locate historical records of any kind that would link Charlotte, Martha and Lewis.  It's established that Charlotte married Henry N. Quiner in New Haven, CT in 1831, moved to Wisconsin and gave birth to several children, among them Caroline Lake Quiner, who was the mother of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  There is so much conflicting information on Martha Morse and Lewis Tucker that I'm despairing of ever finding conclusive evidence about Charlotte's parentage.  Can anyone help?  Thanks for any suggestions.  Kate Frazier Read More

Anyone who might know of the 'FOWE's"in New Jersey?

I have found a lot of 'Fowe's' in America who came from England in the 1800's and 1900's who settled in Louisiana, New York, Wisconsin, New Jersey and Texas. I can't find any of their relatives! My line is from Harrison and Lucrecia (Hudsmith) Fowe who came to California in the early 1900's and had 5 children. I do have some 2nds and 3rd cousins in Washington State. From my research we had a distant cousin on the Mayflower who was William Brewster, whose mother a 'Fowe" from around Essex, England. Could anyone help me fine any 'Fowe's' that might still live here in America. I don't know of any still living or if they ever had lived in FOWEY, England. There is a street in London that is called "Fowey". I do know there isn't any 'Fowe's buried in the Fowey, England cemetery. Most of the 'Fowe's' are Hertforshire, Essex, General, Nottinghamshire, Dorest, Middlesex, London and Mottingham. Help would be appreciated. Thank you Read More

Looking for Swedish Immigrant Ancestor

My third great-grandfather was John Dahlgren. He was born in Sweden on November 26, 1856. In 1890, he married Ida Christina Peterson in Bessemer, Michigan. I am looking for John's father, and have hit a complete dead end. Family legend states that in Sweden, the family last name was Anderson, and that upon their arrival in America, the entire family took John's mother's maiden name, Dahlgren. It also states that his parents were John and Mary. I do not have any sources to prove or disprove any of this. I do not even know for certain if his parents ever left Sweden. If anyone can find any documentation regarding John Dahlgren that would provide any information about his parents, I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you so much,
