      Surname: BOYLE, HAMILTON
      Submitter: Wayne Boyle
      Date: Dec 9, 2008

      I am researching the family of William J. Boyle of Medicine Township. He and his wife, Nancy J. Hamilton had several children and I have been able to account for all of them with the exception of Theora who was born in 1878. She appears in the 1880 census. She would have turned 22 by the time of the 1900 census and was presumably married and no longer in the home. She also is not in the cemetery at Topsy. No marriage license or death certificate has turned up. Her name might have actually been Thaana if you take the "r" for an "n" and may have gone by the nickname Tennie. Her father died in 1898 and by 1910 her mother and family had moved to Trenton. Does anyone know anything of her? Thank You.

          I am looking for any info I can find for John Aaron Franklin and wife Mary E. (maiden name unknown). They are listed in the 1880 census in Washington Twsp., Mercer County, Mo. John and both of his parents were born in Ohio. John was born about 1838. Mary E. was born in Mo. about 1839. In the 1880 census it lists Archie and a sister Josephine. Sometime after 1880 John and Archie moved to Ava, Douglas County, Mo. I don't know if Mary and Josephine went with them or not. I didn't know Archie had a sister until I found out from another person. Archie Edward Franklin also known as Edd married Alpha A. Rogers, daughter of Thomas and Eliza Wileman Rogers. Archie and Alpha are my grandparents. Looking for John's line of Franklins, his siblings if any, and if John had other children. What happened to Mary, what was her surname, parents, and so forth? I cherish any help I can get.
