In one account he is listed as C.W. HILLS, but in another he is listed as W.C. HILLS. His father is J.C. HILLS. "The funeral of...HILLS, who was killed in Virginia, was held, Thursday afternoon, at 1 O'clock, at the home of his father J.C. HILLS, in Blackman {MI}. Deceased was 23 years old and had been at work for the Chesapeake and Ohio road but for 3 days when he was killed. He was in the act of stepping into the cab of an engine, when he slipped and fell under the wheels, death resulting from internal injuries as he was rolled along the tracks beneath the locomotive. He is survived by father and mother, a sister and three brothers, one of the latter, M.E. HILLS being an engineer on the Cincinnati Northern road. Interment was made at Rives {MI}." The other obituary reads: "The funeral of...HILLS, the unfortunate Jackson young man who was killed in Hinton, W. Va., Saturday by falling and slipping under the wheels of a Chesapeake and Ohio Train, was held from the residence of his father, J.C. HILLS, Blackman, Thursday afternoon at 1 O'clock.

I found an obit in the Escanaba Morning Press, dated 11 July, 1909, which tells of the death of Henry Bush at the age of 66, which puts his birth year at 1843. The article refers to his funerary rites being performed by the G.A.R. His brother, Joseph Bush, my g-g-grandfather, was living in Escanaba at the time of Henry's death in Montana. I have had a devil of a time pinning this man down. I have gone through the entire rosters of the 87,000 Michigan Civil War enlistees between 1861-1865 and only came up with one Henry C. BUSH, age 18 at the time of his enrollment in Co. F of the 20th Mich. Infantry. However, it indicated that Henry C. BUSH was from Grass Lake, Jackson County, MI. Specifically, I was wondering if you knew someone who would be willing to search the 1860 census for me to determine if I have the correct Henry Bush. Henry would have been about 17 and his brother would have been Joseph, but may or may not have been living with the family at the time. I suspect that their father's name may have been Joseph also, but am not certain. They should have been born in Canada, but that is uncertain, as well. Some family given names have come down through the generations, so I think I would be able to recognize the family. I would be happy to pay for any expenses incurred. Any assistance you might be willing to provide, would be enormously appreciated! Thank you so much for taking the time to consider this request.

Seeking information on Stuart C. and Mary MOON, who lived in Napoleon, Jackson Co., from about 1853 to the 1860s. He was born 1799, Ontario Co. NY, probably the son of Benoni MOON Jr. and wife Mary McNAIR. He and his brother Salma, took their families to Van Buren Twp, Wayne Co., MI, in 1834. Following the deaths of two of their daughters, Emeline and Elizabeth MOON BROWN ( my gggrandmother) in 1853, Stuart and Mary took their family of Seth, Zina, Stuart Jr., and John Wesley to Jackson Co.

I would like to be given the name and email of someone who is willing to do some research for a fee in the Jackson County area -- more specifically Horton and Hanover township.
The surname is Tripp. Abial Tripp was the first settler in this area. What I need is someone to look though different references and copy what information they can find. I am willing to pay for $10 / hour plus costs to have this done.

The info I seek is in volume 18, Issue 4,1996 and it is called the Thomas Brelsford Bible 1816-1932. I was also seeking something on Henry Frownfelter in volume 19,Issues 3 & 4, 1996. If those names are there, and it is more than just a blurb I will proceed with snail mail to get copies. Thank you very much. Joyce
