Looking for information about Robert Oakley SIRRINE (8 Dec 1815, Peekskill, NY - 1 June 1888, Laurel, MT) and his wife, Clarinda STEVENS (10 Sep. 1815, Wayne Co., PA - 22 Aug 1870, Clear Lake, Cerro Gordo Co., IA) and their descendants. R.O. SIRINE was a blacksmith and farmer, son of Warren SIRRINE and Elizabeth OAKLEY. Clarinda's parents are unknown. It is believed that she is somehow related to Oscar STEVENS and numerous other STEVENS families which migrated from PA to IL, and then to IA with them. R.O. and Clarinda SIRRINE are known to have lived in Berlin Twp., Wayne Co., PA; McHenry Co., IL; Cerro Gordo Co., IA. Their children were: Warren Oscar SIRRINE, husband of Mary Ellen COATES; Olive Amanda, wife of Andrew SWARTZ; Permelia Clarinda, wife of James Buchanan WOOD; Henrietta Elizabeth, wife of Charles Albert CRANDELL; and Mary Adelia, wife of Henry Rudolphus WARD. After Clarinda's death, R.O. married Mrs. Jennie CRANDALL. They went briefly to MN, and then to Laurel, MT. Am willing to freely exchange information.

Thanks,

I'm looking for the county in which Katherine Marie Elisabeth HINTZ has her death certificate registered. She farmed in Mansfield, Freeborn Co most of her life, and later moved to Albert Lee. In the last years before she passed away, she moved back to the family farm in Mansfield. She is buried in the Mansfield Twp Cemetery. Her maiden name was SEEDORF. Born December 13, 1851 and died July 19, 1924. I've checked Freeborn Co for the record and they don't have it on file, so I'm assuming it was filed in one of the nearby counties. I'm hoping people can check the Genealogical Indexes in those areas for me. Thanks! /Tom Hintz
