Looking for anyone who has information on WILCOX'S in Richland or Grant County WI before 1850. Benjamin (Wyalusing & Hazel Green), Samuel (Watterstown), and William G. (Waterloo) or any Wilcox in the surrounding counties. I found and obit of a WILCOX and it Said, she came to this land with her fathers family in 1844 which leeds me to believe that some of these people may be siblings. Other given names from the surrounding area are, Daniel, Elmer, Charles, Mary, Miles, & Joel. These names came from the federal land sales around the 1850's. This line came from somewhere in NY or PA and should have been born 1800 give or take 10 years. I may be contacted at bonez@execpc.com

I am looking for marriage records of my Ggrandmother Phebe Corell who married George Martin about 1890. They lived in Soldiers Grove but there are no records in Crawford County. The next logical place would have been in nearby Richland County. After their divorce around 1900 she moved to Cornell Wi and remarried Carl Gilder. No records in Chippewa County either. Phebe claimed to be a descendent of Native American Indian. Her ancestory is very important to me.

Flora Elvesa BARNES, dau. of James Thomas BARNES and Mary Ann POTTS md. Frank O. SMITH. They married 2 Jul 1876 in Richland Co., Frank O. SMITH was born about 1852 in Chautauqua co, New York. There is some information about them in the 'History of Richland Co.,' but I could not find the family in either the 1880 nor 1900 Wisconsin soundex. They had children Lora C. and Leathy SMITH.

Hi! I am looking for any information on John/Cathrine DWYER, their daughter Julia DWYER who married James REILLY/RILEY in Westford, Richland County in 1869, or any other members of either family. I have found records of burial for John and Catherine in a booklet of Richland County Tombstones called HERE THEY SLEEP, published in 1975. It indicates that they have tombstones in St. Bridget (?) Cemetary - but I cannot locate any confirming records or anything about them. I know that some of the children of James REILLY/Julia DWYER moved on to Spokane, Wa area, but I don't know if any descendants remain in the Richland area. Don't know if the Dwyers had any other children that lived there either, tho I did find a Michael DWYRE farming there in the 1880 census. Any help anyone can offer I would truly appreciate. If you don't know them, if you could offer suggestions on how I could find out more? Thanks! Pat4Cal@aol.com
