MCCULLOUGH, PARKER, TEMPLETON posted by Renee Pence on Wednesday, July 8, 1998

Does anyone know anything about my gg grandfather, Lorenzo Dow PARKER? Information I have is that he was born March 30, 1830 in Harrison County, OH and died 3 Sep 1900 in Des Moines, IA - he moved to Jefferson County, Iowa about 1850 and married Nancy Jane MCCULLOUGH who was also from Harrison County (marriage in Iowa). Information I have is that her parents are John McCULLOUGH and Rebecca TEMPLETON. Lorenzo's pension record contains a letter from Harrison PARKER who claims to be his brother - living in Burlington, IA about 1900. There is also a Henry PARKER buried next to Lorenzo and Nancy's two young children in Jefferson County, Iowa - the information says he was born in 1792 and died in 1848. If anyone knows anything about this family please contact me. Thank you.

JONES, MILIKEN, PEDDYCOART posted by Linda Hoelscher on Friday, July 24, 1998

I am looking for the death date and place of Isabelle PEDDYCOART JONES. She was born in 1831 in Ohio? She was married to William N. JONES on the 16 Nov. 1852. She was living with her daughter, Lydia Virginia Jones MILIKEN and her son-in-law, Thomas W. MILIKEN in Harrison Co., in the 1910 census. She hasn't been found in the 1920 census so I presume she died in this time span.
