I am looking for any information on a Chapman family who were in Warren, Waushara Co, in 1860. The family was headed by Emeline Chapman, a seamstress.

Her children were Edmond, Julia, Willis J., Austin J., Alfred L., Ellen, Allis and Fanny. I am particularly interested in Alfred L. born in PA in 1845. Alfred was 15 years old and a laborer at this time. Emeline's sister, Electa Loomis Davidson, also lived in Plainfield at the time (husband John Davidson). I would also be interested in that family.

Thanks for any help.

I have had the question arise here in La Porte County, IN regarding a Camp Moshava which was located in our county at Rolling Prairie in the 1940s. According to what I have been told, the camp was active until 1955 when it moved to Wild Rose, WI. I have not been able to locate the site of the camp while it was in La Porte County. I thought there might be a chance there would be some record of this camp in Waushara County.

If you have any suggestion, I would welcome them.

My motherís family was from Stevens Point, WI and my grandmother was Jennie Hepburn (or Hepbourn). She married Amiron D. Phelps in Plainfield in 1891. Her father was Orville Hepburn and her motherís maiden name was Sylvia Edson.

I have Jennieís autograph book containing signatures and notes from many of her friends as a teenager, many of them from Plainfield. I understand that this was usual practice for teens of that time.

My particular interest in this is that my mother told me that we were related to the famous Thomas A. Edison but I have never been able to find a link. In Jennieís book is a signature of a Flora Edson dated 3/16/1884 in Plainfield. The 1880 census of Woodford County, Il shows an Ames S. Edsen and his daughter Flora born in 1865 in Wisconsin. I would think it likely that this is the same Flora shown in Jennieís book and that she would be related to Jennieís mother. According to the notice of Jennieís death in the Stevens Point paper on July 3, 1918, she was born in Ashtabula County, OH, which is near where Thomas Edison lived.

Do you have any more information about this Edson family and do you know of any relationship of them to Thomas Edison?

Thank you for any information that you can provide.

I am seeking information about family members who are buried in a family plot in Pine River Cemetery. I have attached a copy of an obituary for Mrs. Clarence Clark (Anna Elizabeth Paulson) who died in Poysippi, Dec. 1, 1919. According to the obituary, Mrs. Clark's "remains were laid away in the family lot in Pine River Cemetery, where her father and mother and grandmother were buried".

I am a genealogical novice so if I have sent this inquiry to the wrong person, would you please forward it to the person who can help me.

I am seeking any biographical information available regarding this family in your area, especially dates of birth and death. Mrs. Clark's father's name was Peder Paulson, her mothers name was Mary. She had a sister and four brothers, one of whom, Peter Charles Paulson, is my great grandfather. She and her family arrived in Pine River from Copenhagen, Denmark in August, 1862.

Attached Obituary:

Poysippi, Wis., Dec. 1, 1919 - After an illness of two weeks and two days Mrs. Clarence Clark passed away at her home near Poysippi at 18:40 o'clock Sat. afternoon Nov., 15, and the funeral was held at the Congregational Church Monday afternoon, Rev. Philo Hitchcock of Pine River, conducting the services. The beautiful flowers and the crowded home, with people standing through the whole service gave mute testimony to the friendship for Mrs. Clark and sympathy for the bereaved husband and children.

The W.R.C., of which Mrs. Clark has for many years been a most faithful and helpful member and the Royal Neighbors, of which organization she was a worthy and loved member, attended in a body and a number followed the casket to the cemetery.

Anna Elizabeth Paulson was born in Denmark April 18, 1862, and when she was three weeks old the family left their Danish home for America arriving at Pine River, Wis. in August, the ocean trip alone taking nine weeks and three days. Three weeks after reaching Pine River the father died, leaving the mother with five young children to rear and a blind mother to care for. In her blindness the grandmother did all the knitting for the family and other helpful tasks.

Clarence Clark and Ana Paulson were married in 1885 and have always lived in Poysippi. Her son Ralph Clark and wife who reside at Havre Montana arrived home Tues. morning, Nov. 11 returning to their home Nov. 25. Three brothers P.C. Paulson of Chippewa Falls Wis., W.H. Paulson of Poysippi, F.A. Paulsson of Prospect, Virginia and one sister, Mrs. Mary Chase of Oregon and many other relatives mourn with the husband and children, of her departure.

The remains were laid away in the family plot in Pine River Cemetery, where her father and mother and grandmother were buried.

Mrs. Clark's cheerful presence will be greatly missed in this community and the family have the deep sympathy of all.

They were married (1 December 1856 in Berlin, Wisconsin).

I am interested in learning more about the Noah Jordan family and his ancesters in Maine and also Amelia Dickerson's family in Wisconsin.

There is a reference in some of the obituaries to "The Lutheran Church in Coloma". These fell in the time frame of 1952-1963. Those family members were all burried at the "Lutheran Cemetery" in Coloma, now known as Hillside. Do you know how I can find out which church was "The Lutheran Church in Coloma"?

Do you know what happened to the Webb Baptist Church? My Great Grandfather was one of the organizers of that church, but nothing more than what was listed in his obituary is known. We know he lived in Waushara County around Wild Rose and Wautoma. The Church was founded about 1905.

I am hoping to discover where the church was/is and where the records are now located.

I'm a great-granddaughter of Frank & Agnes (Putman) Conover, who lived in Plainfield from about 1903 until their deaths in 1947 & 1948. They raised 5 kids, my grandfather Burrell Conover being the eldest. (Also Bernice Worden, Lloyd, Lester, Gladys Johnson).
Bernice's son Frank Worden, and I believe several of Gladys & Bud Johnson's kids still live in Plainfield or Wild Rose.
I have accumulated a lot of information about the ancestors of Frank Conover & of Agnes Putman, going back, on some lines, into medieval times. I am happy to share it with anyone who might be interested.
I am interested in any Conover family information you might have (other than the Worden murder-- I know quite enough about that sad chapter) or might have run across, that you might point me in the direction of a source. 0(As I recall, the newspaper archives were lost in a fire.)

Surnames:COLE/ME CHURCH
Researcher: Randy Cole

My third great grandfather, Ezra Cole, was one of the early pioneers of the Marion district, just east of Wautoma. I believe he first settled in Waushara County circa 1849. He was a member of the ME Church from about 1832 (in Jefferson County, New York) until his death on June 27, 1862. Along with his wife, Venlora (Stratton) Cole, he is buried in the Marion (Leachville) cemetery.

I have very little information about Ezra's life other than the facts that he married Venlora sometime prior to 1840 after her first husband, Lemuel Leach, passed away in 1832 leaving her with four young sons to raise.

In a family record, mention is made of an 1858 "unification" of the ME Church with the Free Will Baptist Church in Waushara County. Would there be any Church records preserved from that time period and if so, where today would they be kept?

I am writing to you from Western Canada as that is where the Cole family eventually came to reside after leaving the U.S. in 1899.

Any and all information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for information on my great grandfather who was in the Waushara Co. Aurora census in 1870. He and Mary, his wife, had Morris, John, Mary, Ellen, and Margaret . All were born in different states. I believe John moved to Berlin because it is said that four of his children were born there but there doesn't seem to be any record of them. James was born in 1877, supposedly in Berlin, Edward was born in 1869 , again in Berllin and two of the sister were born there in 1879 and 1880 I think. Where can I find any information on Patrick and his wife Mary? I don't know if they stuck around Aurora or went to Berlin if any of them did. Can you help?
