SURNAMES AND RESEARCHERS

Who are you researching?
I'm trying to find my elusive ancestor, James A. Russell.
Do you also have an elusive ancestor?
There's a cute poem about them told on the Poems page.

Please send the surnames you are researching, any comments, and your email address. Please list which are surnames and comments and include a request that they be places on the "Surnames" page. I will then publish them on this page. You just never know who might come along and have the info you've been looking for!

Philo Tenyke and wife are mentioned as members of Methodist Episcopal Church in the 8-27-1864 class with Rev.Nelson Moon, Bear Valley, Chester Twp. in Chpt.15 "Zumbro Falls, Gillford and Chester" pgs 113-120 "History of Wabasha Co.MN" by Franklyn Curtiss-Wedge. What was Philo's birthdate, place, age in 1864, wife's name? Were they born in MN or elsewhere? Did they have children? If so, who were they, what became of them? Spelling was atrocious so people heard Tenike and spelled it like it sounded-Tenyke. Linda (Ten Eyck) Bonnell

GEAREY I am interested in The Gearey Family - particularly Hamilton B. and Harriet Elizabeth Macy Gearey. Hamilton was born in Pennsylvania abt. 1810. Harriet was born in NY in 1816. They married and lived in Hudson, Columbia Co. NY until 1860. They moved to near Plainview, MN - where Hamilton lived until abt. 1870, and Harriet lived until Abt. 1880. We have obtained a transcription of one of several diaries that Harriet kept - from 1873. I would especially be interested to contact anyone who puchased any other of her diaries. Kelly Face
