Caplett, Caplette, Carrigan
Donna Murphy
Looking for information on Nelson Caplett(e) and Maria Pelar Lopez Carrigan history. 1880-1900 census shows Nelson and Pelar living in Florence, AZ with 7 children, including Rosa Carriange. Shows that Nelson was a "hostler" (ie, blacksmith/livery stable), owns a home, children in school, Pelar at home. Frank Caplett was my g-father and one of the 7 children. I have a lot of family history from that time to the present, but cannot get past 1880's. I need help. Thank you.

My grandmother's name was Rosa Marie Carrigan b 8-1-1884 died 12-23-47)(in the 1900 Census it is spelled incorrectly) but she was 15 years old at the time and living with her mother Maria Del Pelar Lopez Carrigan Caplett. My grandmother talked about the priest at her church and how much she liked him. She also talked about her wonderful grandparents. (These are stories from my Mom and my aunt (still living). I am trying to find out about her mother (my g-grand mother). She must have died young because I can find nothing about her. She had 4 children by Caplett, One being Nelson. Any information or anywhere I can look would be wonderful.

My grandfather, Comodore Reed, His brother, Martin Jefferson Reed, married Katherine, the sister of Comodores wife Mary Ellen(Ella) Berry = Katherine (Katie) passed away April 23, 1923 in Phoenix Maricopa Co Az born Sep 25 1866 in Ill. Martin Jefferson-( born abt 1860)( also went mostly by Jeff Reed - or M J Reed) and Katie had 5 daughters. Most of the daughters lived in Cooledge Az. at one time. Last week I came to Phoenix and went to Cooledge to see if I could find anything. Met lots of helpful people but nothing on the ladies. The daughters are: Elsie Reed b 1886 married to - last name James -so have been told. Edna Reed b abt 1890 or 1892 married a Dawson. Violet Reed b 1894. Orthella Margaret Reed b 1897 married Glen Chipperfield (I have marrige lic - so for sure at least one known fact). Sybil Reed b 1900. Katie's parents were Thomas Berry andDiane Moyer from Neb. Thomas Berry buried in Redington Neb and Diane buried in Wy. Have also been told that "Jeff" Reed had the Bulldog mine in Apacha Junction. I came last year to Phoenix and spent some time at the records and found Bulldog MIne, but no mention of him, so think he might have just worked there. A cousin actually visited him at the mine, he thinks in the summer of 1942. My parents visted the ladies in Cooledge in the 1970's, my Mom (93yrs ) thinks. Do you think you can help me? If so please send me your land address and I will send you some money to cover your time etc.

John Morehead
A.H. Morehead and his wife Fannie, moved from Silver City, NM to Globe in 1878 or 1879 with their two children, Fannie and my father, John Hoe Morehead (b1877). My grandmother Fannie died in Globe on 5/14/1881 at the age of 26. My father John grew up in Globe and subsequently married Lucy Merritt; their daughter Marjorie was born about 1902. 1900 and 1910 census records shows that he worked as a merchant, and he told me that he sold or worked in lumber for the mines. My father was very involved in the White Mountain Masonic Lodge # 3, and maintained a membership there at least through the 1940's, long after he left Globe. I have a personally signed letter of introduction by Governor Hunt from 1915, recommending my father. He left Globe for Long Beach, CA in 1915, I think. I am working on my family genealogy and want to reconstruct my father's history. I will visit Globe in the Spring of 2003 to search for more information and details. If anyone has any information that might help me in that, or if anyone is interested in the small amount of information that I have, please contact me at

Carnighan, McElleran
Jeanne Dillon Green
Avice Bosse did some research on my Carnighan family and suggested I contacted you for further research on the Carnighan & McElleran as they were supposed to have lived in Mammoth, Pinal County/time frame:1890's-1920's.

I am researching the life of Alice Rollins Crane (who at some time married a 'Count' Victor Morajeski ). Alice was interested in Native Americans and spent part of the time between 1890 and 1905 and between 1910 and 1917 in the Tucson, Arizona area, where she did some research and writing about the Casa Grande Indian Ruins. She and her husband are listed in the Tucson City Directories to 1919, and thereafter Victor is listed in 1922. Then both seem to have disappeared without a trace or paper trail to follow. Alice and her husband claimed to have owned Owl's Head silver mine just north of Tucson. They were the executors of the will of Thomas Jeffords, the 'Blood Brother' of Cochise, the great Apache Chief. Any help you can give on Alice or her husband will be greatly appreciated.
