I am seeking information on my gggrandfather, Charles P. CHURCH who was listed in the 1860 Census for Wonewoc Township, Juneau County. He is identified as a farmer, aged 43, born in New York. His spouse is Evaline, aged 40 and born in Vermont.The children at home are Melvin, 17, born in New York; Niles, 7, born in New York;Edgar, age not legible, born in Wisconsin; Alma, 2, also born in Wisconsin.He is not in this area for the 1870 Census.
I am looking for any information related to the family of Isaac LUKE, who was born about 1830 in WI. He married Rebecca HEWITT on Feb 20 1851 in Sun Prairie, Dane Co., WI. The following children were born in Summit, Juneau Co., WI between 1852 and 1868: Alonzo, Robert, Orville, Mollisia, Elizabeth, Orrin, Simeon, Angelia Rebecca, and Amanda.
Edwin Lewis CADY of NY wed Elizabeth "Betsy" CUTLAND of England on Nov. 25, 1855 in Mausten (then Adams Co., I believe). The bride was 16 and was the daughter of Philip and Susan Cutland of Swimbridge, Devon, Eng. Sure wish someone could help me find out who Edwins parents were. The couple had their first child, Milton, in Jan. 1860 and in Feb. of 1862 he went off with the 10th Battery, Wisconsin Light Artillery. If someone could look in the 1860 census there may be some answers. Three CADY'S from the community of Fountain all joined the same unit in the Civil War. One was Edwin and I believe the others were relatives. The census was a year before they joined and may tell me who was living with whom.
Searching for info. re ROGERS in Juneau Co. Abigail b. 1811 NY (married Christopher GOODENOUGH), Joshua TRUMAN b. 1816 NY m. Fannie COWLES, Amanda WEBBER, and Henry A. b. 1820 NY m. Melinda HOYT, all came to Juneau county in 1857. The mother Martha surname possibly McKNIGHT b. 1787 in MA, died after 1870. Have collected much information on Rogers in Juneau/Monroe counties which I'd be happy to share. Feel that the other ROGERS families in Juneau at that time as well as THOMPSON are all connected.

SCHULTZ: ggrandfather Christian Schultz is on 1860 & 1870 census Germantown, Juneau Co. My ggrandmother is on 1870 census as Dorinda. In the sketch of Christian Schultz in Adams Co. biography compendium (see Adams Co. webpage) ggrandmother's name is listed as Dorothy CHAIRMAN. Elsewhere, I have seen it as SCHIRMER or SCHIERMER or SCHIC/I??. Census says she was born in Hesse - as was Christian. I know this to be correct. I do not call myself a genealogist by any sense of the word. I am at a loss to learn her true maiden name. I would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have for me. I plan to make a trip to the area as soon as I have a good idea of what to do when I get there!
WEBSTER: grandfather Harry L. Webster b. 1882 grew up around Juneau/Adams Co. His siblings were brothers Jud (career US Army-was he the Joseph Webster that died in WWI?-, his wife Carrie, who lived in Mauston for many years, sons Lyle and Keithley); Paul (daughter Phyllis); Roy (was in US Army in Phillipines 1906); sisters Zoe and Nan. Grandfather Harry married grandmother Nettie SCHULTZ. (Nettie first married George KLIPPEL who was killed in the Spanish-American war). My father Francis Irwin WEBSTER, b. 1906 Friendship, was named (supposedly) after his grandfather or Harry's grandfather? In the census reports I have seen to date, I can't figure out which of the many WEBSTERS on the rolls were my grandparents WEBSTER?? I have more census rolls ordered--but thought I'd try a query?? Thank you.

They had 1 child together, Susan Marie, born 2/22/44 in Mauston. John's father was John M. (u-u), mother:Susan M.(u-u), John M.s parents were Martin(u-u) & Willimina(u-u). My g.father had at least one sibling, Charles(u-u). I know so little due to the fact that John deserted Ethel & Susan when she was 2.

Seeking info on QUIRK and JOHNSON families. Bernard QUIRK (1834-1912), son of James & Brigette QUIRK, married Helen JOHNSON (1842-1883), daughter of Matthew & Mary JOHNSON, in Sauk City area on 29 Dec 1862. Bernard QUIRK probably was born in Ireland and is thought to have immigrated to Wisconsin with his parents by way of Canada. Nothing known of JOHNSON family. Children of Bernard & Helen QUIRK include: John James (1864-1891); William Bernard (1872-?); Sarah Jane (1876-1912); Brigette (1876-1878); Thomas Joseph (1879-?); & Henry Arthur (1881- ?).

Hezekiah PECK Jr. (1820-1856) had moved to WI from NY by the 1850 census, which listed him living with his family and his parents in Dodge County. His family (spouse Lucinda Ellis Peck & children Smith, Mary Ann, Oscar A., & Cordelia PECK) were living around Mauston in 1851 when Cordelia died. Although it is known that his family was still in NY in 1847, family history notes indicate Hezekiah came to Lyndon [Station], Juneau County, between 1842-1844. I am looking for any information that confirms Hezekiah PECK was in Juneau Co. before 1850.
