John W Foote 1870 Kansas
« on: Wednesday 31 January 18 16:47 GMT (UK) »
John W Foote 1870 Kansas, son of Andrew Foote & Sarah Tilsley.  I have him with his family on the 1870 census (Ogden, Riley, Kansas):

Name:   John Foote

Inferred Father:   Andrew Foote
Inferred Mother:   Sarah Foote
Household Members:

and 1880 census (North Bend, Dodge, Nebraska):

Age:   12
Birth Date:   Abt 1868
Birthplace:   Kansas
Home in 1880:   North Bend, Dodge, Nebraska, USA

Andrew Foote   36
Sarah Foote   36
John W. Foote   12

Maggie Foote   8
Albert Foote   6
Frank Foote   3
Andrew Foote   1

I then have a marriage for John in 1891 at Chadron Nebraska to a Mary M Murphy born 1871 in New York:
Name:   John W. Foote
Gender:   Male
Race:   White
Marriage Age:   24
Record Type:   Marriage
Birth Date:   abt 1867
Birth Place:   Kentucky
Marriage Date:   26 Oct 1891
Marriage Place:   Chadron, Nebraska, USA
Marriage County Office:   Dawes
Father:   Andrew Foote
Mother:   Sarah Foote
Spouse:   Mary M. Murphy

Whilst John gives his birthplace as Kentucky it is the correct John because he gives his mothers maiden name as Tilsley. 

After the 1891 census I have found nothing else on John or Mary.  Any help appreciated. 

I don't need any assistance on the rest of the family has I have them fairly well covered.  Thanks.

Perhaps the above John is not your man (or they didn't know where his parents were born) or there were three J W Footes living in Salt Lake?

Looking at the death certificate, his parents' information was not known.  He had lived in the city (Salt Lake) 32 years at the time of his death. It appears that he was buried in Los Angeles.

Lisa, thanks so much for the information.  I did find the later census information a few days ago when tracing Maggie Hertzog who was indeed a sister to the John W Foote I am tracing so that must be him on the 1900 census.  Maggie is also on the 1900 census a few days later in Jasper Iowa 1100 miles from Salt Lake City?

I had not found the 1897 marriage - this was Delia (or Adelia) Nixon who had previously married a Joseph Hutchinson in 1892 and was a father to the Juanita on the 1870 census.  Where was the details of the 1897 marriage to Delia from?

From the finding the 1900 census I did see the 1910 & 1920 census but could not make make much sense of them so had not added them to my tree as yet.

The death certificate is a good find and fascinating!  Why?  Well the father of the John W Foote I am tracing, Andrew Foote (1844 England) died and was buried in Los Angeles in 1912?  But if he was being shipped to Los Angeles for burial with his father, wife Florence would have known where he was going?

Forgot to mention that a Millennium file on Delia Nixon mentions a marriage to a Jack Foote (no details and the birth of a son - I assume of John/Jack - Lynn:

Name:   Adelia Matilda Nixon
Gender:   Female
Birth Date:   16 Mar 1874
Birth Place:   St George, Washington, Utah, USA
Father:   James William Nixon
Mother:   Johanna Maria Schultz
Spouse:   Joseph B HutchinsonJack Foote(Son) Lynn

Not found any trace of a son Lynn.

Found the marriage to Delia in 1897, unfortunately no family details.

Have also found the marriage of a John W Foote to Florence Hunston:

Name:   John W. Foote
Gender:   Male
Marriage Date:   21 Oct 1907
Marriage Place:   Bannock, Idaho, USA
Spouse:   Florance E. Hunston

Again no family details

In 1900 Florence was in Massechusetts, 2500 miles away?
