Bassville no longer exists, I am told, but is right outside Springfield in Greene Co. My info leads to Andrew Jackson BASS and wife, Ellender SMITH Bass settling there and having a number of children. Their son, Newton Josiah married Malisa Jane Akin in 1889 and eventually moved to Canadian Co. OK. Anyone with more information to flesh out the family?
His father died before he was born and his mother, Margaret, returned to her parent's household. Their name was JACOBS. Before 1910 Margaret remarried Julius ZSCHOMA and gave birth to several girls. Other than NY 1905 census and 1910 Federal Census I cannot seem to find the ZSCHOMA family. Anyone looking at this family, too?
This couple married 20 June 1906 in Irvington, NJ. Any additional information would be helpful. His parents were John and Hulda, her parents were Conrad and Margaret.
estimated 1891. Children Joohn(b.1878), George(b. 1880),Isabella (b. 1882) and Donald(b. 1885)listed on 1900 US census. 5th Child was Barbara. She would have been married by 1900. Can't find her. Any ideas where to look? 8 Jan 2011-Found her! She was in NY State Census living with mother-in-law. Sometimes searchs use first initial and middle name. That's how I found her husband.
Want to be in touch with this researcher seems we are related somehow)but on the website I found his posting was an old obsolete e-mail. Does anyone out there know of him or if he has an updated address? "Googled" him to no avail.
as a widow sometime before 1895 and that a couple of generations lived in her brownstone in Brooklyn. Can't find her through great-grandfather. What are some variations of Jeanie that I might find. I know her maiden name, but a space for that info doesn't show up in search sites. I don't know if she even used it as in Jeanie Campbell Pallisier(Palliser). What comes next?
Found g-grandf in 1905NY Census and 1910 Fed. but not in 1920 Fed.. I know he died in 1951 so where could he have been in 1920? I have been using Family Search.org
Too often our Journals begin with questions of the community members. Rarely do we see any real success stories. To those many fellow searchers out there I want to say thanks for helping me in my searchs and I hope I have been helpful in yours. I would urge everyone to get into message boards and mailing lists wherever they are, not just this one. Through an e-mailing list I am on I found out that last weekend Ancestry.com(to which I do not subscribe)was having a "free" weekend on immigration information and I can proudly say: I FOUND WHAT I NEEDED! Castle Garden records and Ellis Island records did not help me out because "my people" immigrated in a little timeline hole. Because of the e-list information I plugged into Ancestry and I found them. I wanted everyone to know. I knew you all would smile and be happy for me, you all understand those magic moments of success.
To the newbie family researcher: I would love to try to help you as would others. However, if you only ask a question without giving us enough information to begin the searching, we "treasure hunters" in the community can not assist, and then you think no one cares. The example under the "title or question" when you posted helps some, but is rather vague unless "SMITH in Minnesota" is all you have. It would help if you were to say, "Looking for George SMITH in Minnesota around 1870", and if you could add in the content area that "George was married to Rebecca" it would surely help. As much as you can give is helpful. Someone may not know of either "George or Rebecca SMITH" but if you had added the names of any children you knew of....maybe someone in our tree had married into a SMITH family of Minnesota whose mom and dad were named Rebecca and George. That is often how the links are forged. Many of us have little information of our forebearers for one reason or another and it can be a difficult journey to find our heritage alone. This forum certainly helps if we all will give it a fair chance. Happy Hunting!
