LACOURT, LACOURTE, VANDRIS posted by Sharon Ivory on Friday, November 11, 2005

Has anyone ever run across information about the following Jean Joseph Lacourt? Jean Joseph LACOURT, married to Virginie VANDRIS, seems to have come to the Champion area sometime after April 28, 1855 when the whole family traveled on the "Milton" to Quebec with other settlers for Champion. He might be the Joseph LACOURTE who purchased 40 Acres in Kewaunee County in 1858. But the problem is that he was one of three adult Jean Joseph Lacourts, who immigrated on the "Milton" on the same voyage. I can follow the wife, as a widow, from 1900 on, but have never found censuses or any other official document placing Jean Joseph in Wisconsin. His adult children show up in 1880 in Sturgeon Bay and by 1900 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Anna MEULEMANS 1855 - 1931, married Alphonse RODER or RODAER 1850 - 1904 They married in Wisconsin and moved to Milbank S.D. where they died. We believe they had twelve children. Six of the children and Alphonse died of TB and we have found their graves. We also found Alphonse's(Frank) obituary and discovered that he had older children....At least two of them married Carrie and Jenny. We are looking for medical reasons so any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for information about Ralph S. CROWL, who died in Depere 31 October 1963. He had two children: Frank S. Crowl and Emma Matilda SMITH. Frank had two children: George Crowl and Jane Van S. STOUT. Emma had two children: John Smith and Rebecca L. PEDEN. Ralph S. Crowl lived in Madison in the 1920s. He was a builder/developer who conceived of an idea to design and develop fraternity and sorority quadrangles at university campuses in the Midwest. in 1926 he developed Jordan Quadrangle at Indiana University. One of the fraternity houses is now threatened with demolition by Indiana University. Local preservationists are fighting this. My role is to find out as much information as I can about Ralph S. Crowl. I'm anxious to talk with Crowl's descendants or anyone else who may know something about Crowl's business, known as Crowl Construction Company, and located at 15 W. Main Street, Madison, in 1929. I do not know how long the organization operated, when Crowl moved to Depere, or what he did after moving to Depere.
