United States of America / Obit Julia Leona Roche, Apr 8, 1959, Philadelphia
« on: Monday 09 January 23 23:46 GMT (UK)  »
Julia Leone Frye, nee Watterson, married George Washington Roche in 1951 in Philadelphia. I do not have the marriage record which just might mention if her mother Elizabeth White nee Averell  formerly Watterson is still  alive in 1951, which is what  I am really looking for. The last time that I found Elizabeth was in 1934 living in Hawthorne/Inglewood California when Julia's sister Virginia married to John George Spencer. Then Julia died Apr 8, 1959 at 4423 Spruce St., Philadelphia, and she was a widow after George died Nov 25, 1958 at same address. I have Julia's death certificate and George's. What I really am looking for is an obit to see if Julia's mother is mentioned. The informant at Julia's death was her stepson Clifford L. Roche living at 48 N. Penn St., Philadelphia. I don't think Julia had any biological children.
Julia's mother Elizabeth aka Lillian aka Lizzie Averell was born Feb 10, 1881 in Ireland but her date of birth varies on different records.
Thanks for any help.

United States of America / Parents of Mary M. Johnston, nee Brown, and sister Eliza
« on: Sunday 08 January 23 00:32 GMT (UK)  »
Mary M. Raymond nee Brown married Adam Groves Johnston Jan 13, 1883 in Summit Co., Ohio, USA.*7fpwse*_ga*NTIwOTMzODUzLjE2NjY4MTYyNzY.*_ga_4QT8FMEX30*MTY3MzExOTI3OC43NC4xLjE2NzMxMzcxNTcuNS4wLjA.

 They are on the 1900 Census in Cleveland with Mary's sister Eliza Brown, single. Mary is born Nov 1845 and Eliza is born Mar 1855. They are both born Ohio, father born Massachusetts, mother born Pennsylvania.

Adam dies Dec 27, 1901 in Akron, Ohio and is buried with his first wife Sarah Milliken in Oakwood Cemetery, Warren, Howland Township, Trumbull Co., Ohio.
Mary died Aug 23, 1908 in  Cleveland. Her death record does not name parents. I don't know when Eliza died. At first, I thought it was her on Nov 26,1907 but it is not her. I have tried for years to find the parents of Mary  M. and Eliza. I have looked at the 1860 census trying to find them together in Ohio. I have tried to find Mary's first marriage to Mr. Raymond. I have searched trees on familysearch and ancestry. I have phoned Woodland Cemetery where Mary is buried. I just can't sort this family out.
Can anyone help with this? Thank you. Peggy

United States of America / Joann McLaughlin, nee Digney, formerly Fry, formerly Culver
« on: Wednesday 28 December 22 00:01 GMT (UK)  »
Joann Digney was born Nov 2, 1932  in Ohio to William James Digney and Jennie aka Virginia Margaret Watterson. Joann had 3 marriages, and as near as I can figure, the first was to James E. Fry before 1954, as Joann was a witness to her half-sister Jane Spencer's marriage on Jan 23, 1954 and Joann's surname was Fry. Her surname was Culver when her stepfather John George Spencer died in 1966. I believe her last husband was Myron A. McLaughlin and they divorced Jan 29, 1979 in Los Angeles. Joann died July 26, 1988 in Riverside, California.  I can't find an obit for Joann whose surname I believe was McLaughlin when she died. Can anyone find a death certificate or obit for Joann? I don't think she had any children.
Thanks for any help.

Tyrone / wife of Joseph Watterson, Tullyodonnel, Co. Tyrone
« on: Sunday 04 December 22 20:16 GMT (UK)  »
As per the marriage record of Matilda Watterson to David Barnes, Sept 24, 1856 at Sandholes Presbyterian, her residence was Tullodonnel and her father was Joseph, a farmer.
As per the marriage record of Isabella Watterson to Thomas McQueen/McQuin, June 1, 1854, Parish Church of Desertcreat, her residence was Tullyodonnel and her father was Joseph, a farmer.
I have been unable to find the mother's name for these girls. Many online trees suggest Ann Moffit but Joseph and Ann had all their children at Lisnamorrow.
Matilda Barnes died Feb 13, 1884 at Corkhill. Her husband David also died at Corkhill, Mar 29, 1892 with Mary Ann Crooks present, of Derrinleagh.
Isabella McQueen died July 23, 1905 at Doons with son Joseph present, although Isabella's age is out by 7 years so one could wonder. Her husband Thomas had died May 16, 1893 at Tulnacross with son Andrew present.
I haven't been able to find the name of this Joseph's wife. Looking for any help. I didn't find a will for Joseph in any possible year. Presuming he would have been born abt 1800-1810.

I just purchased a subscription to NewspaperArchive, and so far, I have found it useless. Haven't found anything. Looking for obit of Cordelia Frances Barnes who died Jan 21, 1925 in Little Valley, Cattaraugus, New York. Hoping for mention of her sister Evaline Dodge who had been previously married to John W. Harwood and then George Cook.
Thank you

United States of America / Death/obit Maud Mae Hanson, Jan 31, 1971, Oregon
« on: Thursday 24 November 22 20:55 GMT (UK)  »
Evaline Dodge was firstly married to John Wesley Harwood who divorced her in July 1889. Evaline remarried to George Cook July 31, 1891 but they had a daughter Maud May in June 1890. Maud married Lafayette Hanson abt 1909. Lafayette died in 1933 but Maud lived until Jan 31, 1971 and she died in Oregon. Can anyone find her death record or obit, proving that she is Evaline's daughter? George remarried to Theresa/Tirzah Arrwood nee Castle in 1900 so I suppose the death certificate might give Theresa's name but I hope not.
George died July 29, 1908 in Brainerd, Crow Wing Co., Minnesota.
Thanks for any help.

I am actually looking for the date of death of John Wesley Harwood, brother to Justin Dunsmore Harwood. Hoping that Justin's obit might mention if his brother John is still alive or not. Their parents were Hiram Harwood and Emily Justine Mueller, both sons born New York. Actually, they also had a sister Harriet A. Harwood who married Eugene Sutherland. She died Apr 1920, guessing New York. Her obit might be even more valuable to narrowing down the date of death of John, who was last heard of in Aug 1893 in Redwood, Minnesota but disappeared at that time.
Thanks for any help

United States of America / Death John Harwood June 10, 1903 Montana
« on: Wednesday 16 November 22 02:59 GMT (UK)  »
I have been searching and searching and searching for the death record of John Wesley Harwood, born abt 1844 in New York, who married Evaline Dodge and lived many years in Minnesota. He remarried to Laura A. Strawsell in 1889 in Minnesota. However many of the family migrated to Montana and I am wondering if this death of John Harwood June 10, 1903, in Helena, Lewis and Clark county, Montana might be him. Can anyone find out more about this death? On  Findagrave, his date of birth is unknown.
Thanks for any help

Wanting to confirm the parents of William Seward Johnson/Johnston who died Feb 19, 1874 in Canton, Fulton, Illinois. There is some confusion as to whether he was born in New York or in Nova Scotia, Canada to Robert Johnston and Mary Ann O'Neil.  After William's birth, the family settled in Bertie Township, Welland Co., Ontario, Canada but William found his way to Illinois. He is on findagrave but parents are not mentioned.
thanks for any help
