My G-grandfather Thomas BULLOCK married Mary CHAMBERS, then Martha CHAMBERS. The 1870 census showed their mother as being from Ireland. I have not established what her maiden name was or if she married THOMAS CHAMBERS in the U.S. Apparently Thomas had brothers Samuel, John, Joseph. I have a paper dated May 17, 1864 saying Thomas Bullock, Coitsville, Ohio was to report for duty in Warren, Ohio. My Grandparents (Rosamond GREEN & Thomas BULLOCK) were both born in NE. Any information on any of these names would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for any information on any STRUBBE that settled in Nebraska. Most settled in IN after coming from Germany ..... except for Henry STRUBBE Sr., who left Indiana around 1874 & headed for NE. Henry STRUBBE was married to Sarah COLTMEYER (or KAULTMEYER) and they had Laney, Louis, Elizabeth, Frank, Amelia, and Ida. Louis STRUBBE was the youngest, born in the fall of 1872 in Indiana, but his obituary was seen years ago by a relative in a Nebraska paper. Last year, a letter from a STRUBBE from California arrived & was inquiring about family history. Her mother was adopted by a Louis and Ollie STRUBBE along with other children (Frances, Jack O., and Edna Marie) ... she went on to state that her mother married her adopted cousin Floyd William STRUBBE, son of Harold & Anna STRUBBE. Interesting .... so I am trying to find anything on any STRUBBE in NE. Would appreciate any info!

1920 NE census - Same as above only 20 yrs older ... Children at home were Edith and and there was added a 16 yr old Ruth.
A check of the 1910 census had them as a farm family. Took a look at the precinct to see if I could find somebody who might be the sister...& Ruth who should have been six years old was not on it.

I'm researching my wife's ancestors from Nebraska. The FARMS and LAMBERGS arrived from Sweden around 1880. Would like to converse with anyone with information.

Bessie Allice MADDEN, born 1901, in Davy, NE to parents Lewis Butler MADDEN (b 1859) and Mary McDonald GARVER. She was born in 1875 in Plymouth, Indiana. I hope to find out what county Davy was in, possibly the SE corner of Neb. I hope to obtain any information that would help me trace these great grandparents. I haven't found them on a 1900 census. They were in Idaho by 1910. Help is very appreciated.
Barbara Leachman Lewiston, ID USA - Thurs 16 Jan 1997 at 18:30:13 (GMT)
I have recently had a great deal of success with searching my MADDEN line from NE. Because of my query, a very helpful person located and sent to me, a copy of the Davy marriage record of Louis Butler Madden and Mary McDonald Garver. This record gave me the names of his parents and her father. I have since been given information on Louis' maternal grandparents and all four Great Grandparents back to 1755. I also found out that my husband's grandmother, Bessie Alice Madden was not born in Davy, Nebraska, but probably in Comstock, NE, in 1901. I suspect that her mother -in-law may be buried in Comstock. Her name was Clara Clarissa Wait(e) Conkle Madden. Thank you for the help that you provide to those of us searching for our roots. - Barbara, 14 Oct 1997.
