MELLERA, VAN BEVER, VINCENT posted by Karla on Sunday, November 5, 2000

I am looking for information about these family names. Specifically, information about Joseph J. VINCENT and his wife Pelagie nee MELLERA. They had three children. Constance, Anton and Matilda. The parents were buried in the Spiratulist Cemetery outside of Luxemburg. Then there was Florian VAN_BEVER (an not sure of the spelling of his name). His sister married a Verdell. (could this be Vertelle?)Sounds like they may have lived around New Franken. Florian married the young girl that was doing the housework for the family. A quick wedding in the Catholic Church in Tonet. Then a quick annulment. This young woman came with her baby to do housekeeping for another family. She married the son and he adopted the daughter. His name was Anton Vincent and his wife was Ida. If these stories or names sound familiar and you can add or clarify things for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

GOOD SHEPHERD HOME posted by Marilyn Mrencso on Saturday, November 18, 2000

HARTFORD posted by Patricia Eckardt on Tuesday, November 28, 2000

I am trying to locate my GrGrGrandfather, James HARTFORD. He shows up on the 1900 and the 1905 Census in DePere, and then I lose him. I have checked with Vital records and they have checked from 1905-1924 and have not found a death record for him. In 1900 his address was 408N. Bdwy and in 1905 according to the Census he owned his own home. He was living with one Anna Hartford and a step child, Blanche Burgess who was born in Wisconsin Sept. of 1892. I am trying to determine if he was still in your area for the 1910 Census, if he died, if he moved, or what happened to him. Is there someone who has access to directories? There is another problem here, as there appears to be another (not mine) James Hartford in that area, and to make it worse, in the 1920 Census that James Hartford's son shows up and his name is James also!.. My James Hartford was born in Dulbin in 1844. Can someone help me with deterimining if he is on the 1910 or in that area at that time?

DORAN, RYAN posted by Jan Ryan-Berg on Saturday, December 9, 2000

I am researching the Michael RYAN (1798-1879) and Margaret DORAN Ryan(1816-1902?) family of Rockland.

BRUESKEY, CLARK, ELLIS, KUSKE posted by Renee J. (Clark) Reinke on Sunday, March 18, 2001

Searching for information on my Grandfather's Family. Grandfather's name was Charles Luvern CLARK, born Nov. 25, 1890 in Greenleaf. Need to find his records and his parent's names. We think his father was John Luvern or Luvern Clark. We think he married to either a Catherine ELLIS or a Frances KUSKE or BRUESKEY. His mother passed away when he was only 19 and his father left Wisconsin for perhaps Montana or Wyoming. The date of her death would be somewhere around 1909. Have been to the cemeteries in both Greenleaf and Wrightstown without finding anything we could work from. If anyone knows of any Clark families that settled in the Greenleaf or Wrightstown areas we would love to hear from you.
