Joe Carlson  Oct 1996    I am looking for any information on my gr-gr-grandmother, Mary Jane INGWELL b abt 1860 in Blanchardville, WI.  I know she had 2 sisters Minnie and Josie.  Mary Jane probably taught in a school for the blind.  She married Peter HOLMGREN.

 Stein Ole Kjaer   Oct 1996   Looking for the descendants of Oline JEVNE, born 21.Sept.1861 in Stange, Hedmark, Norway.  She crossed the Atlantic from Oslo, Norway the 13.Sept.1886 and wrote LaCrosse Wisconsin as her destination.  She can have been using the last name OLSEN, but I doubt it.  She was unmarried and had done work as a seamstress in Norway.


FREDERICK // ROBERTS

Michael J. Frederick  Oct 1996   I am looking for information concerning my great-great grandfather, John Mills FREDERICK.

 Virginia Walters  Nov 1996   Thomas C. ALLEN married  Harriet M. FISHER at Shullsburg, WI (Lafayette County) in November, 1855.  Witnesses at this marriage were a Mr and Mrs John ALLEN, presumably some relation.  Thomas and Harriet later moved to Iowa.  Can anyone shed light on the John ALLENs?  Harriet's parents were Samuel and Anna Maria (WOODWARD) FISHER, apparently of Shullsburg.  I am searching Thomas' parents and siblings.


MARTIN // BRADY

Linda Cliborne  Nov 1996    MARTIN/BRADY  I am seeking info on the family of James Patterson MARTIN and his wife Mary Elizabeth BRADY.  They had 8 children, Frederic, William, Florence Olive, Andrew, Mary Agnes, Elsie, James Blaine, and Lora Bell.  James Blaine MARTIN was b. 1884 in Darlington, Lafayette Co, WI.  I would be interested in any decendants or ancestors of these women or other vital stats.

Darlene Fish   Dec 1996  Seeking marriage of Ida Bell BOUGHTON to a LANE around 1877-1883 in Lafayette County.  Also seeking 1885 Wisconsin Census for a Michael LANE in Lafayette County.


STAM // GUGGERTY // GAUGHERTY // GOGERTY

Lisa McKinney Dec 1996   I am researching STAM-GUGGERTY  (GAUGHERTY/GOGERTY) c1840-c1880 genealogy in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri.


STAENDER // STENDER // STAINER // SCHLESWIG // HOLSTEIN // KAHL

 David A. Kluver  Dec 1996  I am researching my ancestor Claus Heinrich STAENDER (STENDER, STAINER),  18 Oct 1821, SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN, - 21 Apr 1893,  Remsen IA,) present in Platteville township Grant Co, WI in the 1870 federal census.  His daughter, Charlotte, married Wilhelm KAHL (21 Dec 1840, Holstein - 6 Feb 1905, Remsen IA)  that year; they are listed in the 1880 federal census, also of Platteville.  The 1870 census lists Claus Heinrich as Henry STAINER, 50, with wife Henriette, 50, and children Dorothy, 13, Rudolf, 10, and Otto, 7, all born Holstein.  Clause Heinrich's 1893 death record states that son Otto, 27, remained in Platteville.  None of the records I have access to (mostly census records) state the year of emigration of either the STENDER family or of  Wilhelm KAHL (he had two brothers, August, born about 1843, and Heinrich/Henry, born about 1836). The volumes of Germans to America do not appear to help either.  I live in Texas and thus do not have access to any records specific to Grant Co.  I would appreciate any information concerning surviving relations or points of origin or residence of my STENDER or KAHL relations.


CALVERT // BRUNSKILL // SPARKS // ALDERSON // CAYGILL // HUGILL // HURD

 Susan Cosgrove  Dec 1996  Looking for information regarding these people and their parents.  Michael, Martin, John, Isaiah and Henry CALVERT.  They all came to Wisconsin around the same time (1840's).  All of the brothers were involved in mining (New Diggings, WI?).  Henry came in 1839-1840 to New Diggings with his wife Jane BRUNSKILL-CALVERT and 2 children, Margaret and Simon.  Michael CALVERT married Elizabeth SPARKS and died at Fairplay, WI.  Martin CALVERT married Nannie ALDERSON and died at New Diggings, WI.  John CALVERT died at Portage, WI.  Isaiah died at New Diggings.  Henry CALVERT died 9-19-1895 at the home of his daughter Lizzie CALVERT-CAYGILL near Linden, WI.  One sister and her niece came to WI also, Jane CALVERT-HUGILL and Esther ALDERSON (of Shullsburg, WI.)  Jane died at Mifflin, WI.  Their parents stayed in England and are from the Arkengarthdale area, North Yorkshire.  We think their names were Henry CALVERT and Margaret HURD.

CALVERT // SPARKS // HUGILL

Susan Calvert-Cosgrove Dec 1996  I am interested in any information on Michael CALVERT, b 1800?  Arkengarthdale, England, came to New Diggings, WI around 1830-1840's,  He married Elizabeth SPARKS and their children were John, Sarah Ann, Joseph, Thomas William, Maria, Elizabeth, Martha, and Edward.  They lived in Dubuque and Fairplay.  Michael was an experienced miner and died at Fairplay, WI.  His brothers, Martin, John Nathan, Isaiah, Henry and one sister Jane CALVERT-HUGILL all came to the New Diggings area also around the same time.
