that at one time he went by the name of KNORR.  I need any information
that is available on him.  I can not go back further then him in my research.
The only other information is that he worked on the railroad
and his father may have been a bookkeeper/accountant.

Subject: [NEDOUGLA] Looking for Daley, Halpin, Riley, Ryle, Stack

Have come to a standstill in my genealogical research of my branch of the Stack family and hope someone can help me with more information re: Margaret M. Stack.

Discovered Margaret on the 2/10/1877 marriage certificate of my maternal   gggrandmother's (Johanna Stack Ryle) sister Mary because when Mary married Bartholomew P. Ryle, Margaret Stack was one of the witnesses. When Margaret married Cornelius T. Riley on 7/3/1893 in Stamford, Fairfield Cty., CT, Bartholomew P. Ryle and Helen Ryle were the witnesses (my maternal gggrandfather's brother and niece.)

Know Margaret was born in Ireland around 1849-1850 and the 1910 census shows her as coming to the US in 1866. She died without issue on 9/2/1913 and left an estate of around $7,000.   In her will, her heirs, their addresses and their
relationship to her were shown as follows:
Cornelius T. Riley - Stamford
Robert Stack  )  Chapel Lane, Ennis, County Clare, Ireland
Michael Stack)  children of her deceased brother,
of the full blood, Garrett Stack,
Lizzie Stack   )  late of County Clare, Ireland
Lizzie Stack   )  all of Pittsburgh, PA, children of her deceased brother of the full
Garrett Stack  )  blood, James Stack, late of County Kerry, Ireland
Mary Stack    )  Ireland
John Stack     )
John Halpin of Omaha, Neb.   )  children of her deceased sister, of the full
James Halpin of Omaha, Neb. )  Kate Halpin, late of Cresco, Iowa
Robert Halpin of Cresco, Iowa )
Mary H. Daley of Cresco, Iowa)

Her will also shows that she had made a loan of $1700 (payable 3 years after date with interest @ 5% per annum payable annually) to John F. and Mary J. Daley.  There was a deed of mortage dated 4/9/1912 which was recorded by the
Howard County Recorder on 8/15/1913 in Book 51 on page 99.

No one in my family knows anything about Margaret or her heirs. My branch of the Stack family consists of Johanna Stack Ryle, daughter of Robert and Mary Scanlon Stack, who was probably born about 1840-1849 and supposedly was from
Ballybunnion, County Kerry, Ireland. She married Patrick J. Ryle in 6/1869 and had 9 children of whom 5 lived to adulthood. She had a brother named Robert who went out to Omaha, Nebraska and died out there, a brother named Garrett who
stayed in Stamford and was married Sarah Whelan (don't know when) and had four children who died young, a sister named Mary who married Johanna's husband's brother and had 10 children of whom 6 lived to adulthood, and a brother named
Michael who was a priest.

Would love to hear from someone who knows anything about Margaret M. Stack or her heirs!
