Mary DAMEWOOD b 1836 TN was married to Emmet H. BLAGRAVE 1836. The family lived in Page Co., IA at the time of the CW. Mary may have been related to Granville and Russell Damewood. Her grandfather was probably Malachi DAMEWOOD and her father was either Isaac or Nathan DAMEWOOD. Sometime after the war, Emmet and Mary moved to Laton, Kansas. She died there in 1896. Can anyone help me with the MARY DAMEWOOD search?

I recently ran across a web site that had your address on it and it mentioned you were researching WILSON in Page County. I have recently started doing research on that part of my family and wondered if you knew anything about a Margaret Wilson that had married Isaac Pike Davidson. I know of one daughter they had, Sarah Ann Davidson who was born in Kentucky. The family must have moved to Iowa at some point in time after Sarah's birth. I don't have any birth or death dates for either Isaac or Margaret. Is this of any relation to the Wilson family you're researching? Thanks for your time.
Sorry, my WILSON family is from Fountian Co., IN.,

Maybe you or someone on your site can help me find some info. My grandmother Edith DENNEY, was born 9 Oct 1884 in Blanchard, Page Co., IA. She was later adopted by a family named Monroe. (That's all I know about that). Were they from IA or NE where she later lived? But her biological mother's name, my GGMother, was Mary Ella HOLMAN DENNEY. My GGFather was Zach DENNEY. They were later divorced (again no info). Ella, as she was known, later married Robert Manning and they lived in Geneva, NE. And her mother's name was Mary HOLMAN buried in Union Grove Cemetary in Northboro, IA in 1913. Mary Ella had a sister who is also buried in the Union Grove Cemetary in Northboro, IA. Her name was Frances Josephine HOLMAN, born 5 Feb 1855, died 2 Aug 1929, mar. Isaiah S. Millen. I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about this family.

Dougherty - Christensen connection
Date: 19 Oct 2000 6:22:55 AM Pacific Daylight Time
Hello, Paul. We have corresponded in the past. I'm Carl T. Musselman of Omaha, NE. I've conducted much research in Page County, as well. My surnames are Reid, Edwards, Gardner, Bute, Dougherty, and other smaller branches. Via the main branch of Reids, I've contacted Katheryn Edwards Dougherty, whose grandmother was Mary Ann (Reid) Edwards. Katheryn married Lester D. Dougherty, son of Lester W. Dougherty. Lester and Kaye live in Hastings, NE. They have been wonderful in providing me with information about our common Reid and Edwards lines. In appreciation, I prepared family tree books for them and their children, including some brief research on their Dougherty side.
      Ans: sorry, I don't remember our correspondence. ..prs
I frequent your Page County IAGenWeb page and just noticed the Genealogy Reports that you've posted on the Dougherty and Christensen families. There was a lot of info there that I didn't have and can now provide to Lester and Kaye Dougherty to add to their books. My info stopped at Day Dougherty and Nels Christensen. Augusta Christensen was the only child known to me, before this, so there is a lot of Christensen info that I need to input.
      Ans: Glad I could Help. ..prs
I have photos of Benjamin, Dale, Elsie, and Lester W. Dougherty, as well as Matthew Walter, and Augusta Dougherty. I can share them with you, via email, if you wish.
      Ans: Yes, I would be interested in the Augusta (Chirstensen) Daugherty Photo (Chirstensen primary family) (Never received Photos! ..prs ..prs
I would like to receive, from you, any obituaries of these Dougherty and Christensen lines, that you may have in your database. Any old photographs of the older Doughertys or Christensens would be great, as well.
      Ans: All Obit.'s & photos of these families are on my pages. ..prs
My family tree home page is: www.familytreemaker.com/users/m/u/s/Carl-T-Musselman/
I've published an Internet Book, there, "My Family's History". The Dougherty branch isn't included, except for a portion of it under the Edwards Family chapter.
      Ans: Sorry, I couldn't find the "portion of the Edwards Family chapter" would be interested in Dougherty Family (Secondary famil) you will notice, I have a lot of "Unknown, and/or Not Traced" on my IAPAGE, Dougherty page. ..prs
If you'll notice, I've borrowed some maps from your webpage and edited one of Morton Twp. to illistrate the locations of my ancestors, there.
      Ans: No problem, but, common courtesy is to references where the original Map came from, give the original author credit. Also it would be nice to "Link" to that source to give others a chance to use information. Such as my URL: https://sites.rootsweb.com/~iapage/pg-twps.htm ..prs

There is a gap between Mary and Nellie that could be the missing 12th child, but the Juniata Co. PA cemetery index maintained by the Juniata Co. His. Socy., Mifflentown PA does not list such a grave.

Dear Mrs. Oxley, Mr. Cimino and Mr. Sarrett,
About five weeks ago, we stopped at the Juniata Co. (PA) Historical Society in Mifflentown looking for data on M. D. and Mary (Burns) Dougherty and their antecedents. The volunteers there advised that Page Co. IA was a common destination for people from the Juniata Valley and asked that we summarize our data and send them a copy for their files.
Subsequently, Ed's sister located materials on the internet that had been provided by you. They appear to supplement our information, particularly with regard to in-law identification. We would like to incorporate relevant partions of your work in accordance with the attached draft, citing you as sources.
We have similar summaries in preparation for Lemuel Dougherty 1847-1917 (also of Page Co. IA), Matthew Dougherty c1810-1889 of Juniata Co. PA and John C. Burns 1822-1891 of Juniata Co. PA and could provide such as they become more complete if that is of interest.
If these families are of only peripheral interest to you, "no thanks" will alert us to that.

Posted: 02 Dec. 1996,
This DRACE Family story starts with two brothers, the oldest JOHN FREDERICK DRACE, b. 1801 and younger brother HENRY DRACE, b. 1809. both were born near Oldenburg, Germany. It is not known who their parents were, nor any other brothers or sisters.
It is assumed that they were raised in their native land of Germany, and base on their children's birth their marriage date was determined. It is believed that JOHN F. DRACE and his bride ELIZABETH C. (RENTKER) DRACE came to America first after 1836 (their 1st. born was in Germany as per 1850 Census of Brownstone Twp., Ind.), arriving at the Port of Baltimore, Maryland then relocating to Hagerstown, Maryland, then relocated in the fall of 1838 to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Brother HENRY DRACE and his wife MARY ELIZABETH (SYNDER) DRACE were married about 1837, in Germany and joined his brother in Cincinnati, Ohio prior to 1839 (their oldest was born in Cincinnati, Oh. 1839).
Both families left Cincinnati, Ohio together in 1840 going west to Brownstone Twp., in Jackson County, Indiana. Here they preceded to clear, cut, save and burn the trees and vegetation to plow their fields. They farmed this area for over 15 years until the WESTWARD movement caught them again, which they pulled up stakes and relocated to the rich and fertile land of Page County, Iowa.
These brothers were very close to each other, through out their lifetime. The names of their children are so similar that its been difficult to determine who is who in the records.
The following is that story ....Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.,

I'm back in town and started comparing the Drace family info you sent with what I had.
I have six children listed for John Frederick Drace, Sr.
I have a Mary Catherine Drace, born 1830 in Germany; died July 12, 1873 in Brownstone Township, Indiana, married to John Henry Sitterding. She was not included in your list.
I also show John Frederick Drace, Jr. with a different spouse-- Maria E. Chase. And I have Henry as Harmon Drace's middle name.
Since I haven't done any of the research, I'm unsure how accurate the information is.
We still are planning to go to Iowa. According to my notes, the Polsley Cemetery is in Yorktown. Is that correct? I went to the local library in New Jersey to see if I could find anything on John Morris Martin. I did find a mention of Anthony Martin (his father) in the 1830 census. I heard that research is hard in New Jersey.
In 1956 the Martins had a family reunion. My mother listed everyone who attended and two of those people were Mr. & Mrs. Earl Annan of Yorktown, Iowa.

I was searching for a way to find help with my research of our family. I saw your message with the lists of people you are researching. My Great , Great Grandfather was Daniel Duncan, and he was born and raised in that area. The Duncan name is very well known there, and I plan a trip to Page Co and See what I can find. I have been in touch with the Museum there and I really want to go there too. Do you have any information on the Duncans that I could get from you for a research fee? Also, I am trying to find information on James Hare, who lived in that county too. He would be my Grandmother Mrs Charles H Duncan's Grandfather. He is buried in a cemetery near there. The same one that Daniel Duncan is buried. Thank you for any help you may be able to give me. Margaret
Thank you for the time used to read this.

Re: Adam W. DUNCAN, 1802-1852
In Reply to: Adam W. DUNCAN, 1802-1852 by Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.
Paul, found your reference to John Duncan being married to Mary (Jane) Karr. Mary Jane Karr was born in Coshocton County in 1836 and, according to our family history, married John Duncan October 2, 1856. Mary Jane's parents (Robert and Mary Endsley Karr) are my gggrandparents. I have a lot of information about John and Mary Jane Duncan's descendants if you are interested (I couldn't access the Robert Duncan link on your website, so don't know if you have this information or not).
After reading your message, I went to your Iowa website and discovered something especially interesting - at least to me (maybe you already know this). You have a McKeown family listed. William H. McKeown (7th son of Alexander) is shown as marrying Nancy J. Tidrick. Nancy is the daughter of Robert and Mary Karr Tidrick.
This Mary Karr Tidrick is the sister of Robert Karr referenced above (my gggrandfather), who is the father of Mary Jane Karr Duncan.
I'm especially excited about finding this information on one of the Tidricks because we have very little information on this family beyond Robert and Mary Karr Tidrick. We did not have the first name of Nancy's husband or where they lived, only that Nancy's children were named Mary (who married a Samuel Orr) and James Duncan.
I would be most happy to exchange information with you.

We corresponded back in 2002 through a genealogy message board about the Duncan family in Guernsey County, Ohio. You might recall that my ggrandfather's sister Mary Jane Karr married John Duncan, son of Andrew W. and Jannett Duncan. At the time you indicated that you were interested in having more information about this family.
I acquired a book about Londonderry Township in Guernsey County earlier this year and just realized that it has some information about the Duncan family that might be helpful to you.
Sunset View Cemetery (formerly Londonderry United Presbyterian Cemetery) is the second oldest cemetery in Londonderry Township (Friends Cemetery is the oldest). Many of the earliest settlers not associated with the Friends church are buried there.
Right next to the plots for my ggggrandparents and a few of their children/grandchildren is a plot for the Duncans. I visited this cemetery in 2004 and don't know why I didn't notice the Duncan plot at that time. Many of the oldest stones are difficult or impossible to read due to deterioration of aging (I think they are sandstone).
The following Duncans are buried in this plot (according to the Londonderry book). The reference in the book to this plot reads as follows:
     Andrew, died Oct. 4, 1896, aged 69yrs
     Margaret, his wife, died Aug 3, 1897, aged 68yrs
     Jennie M. died Feb 4, 1860, aged 5yrs 3 m 6 day
     Adam (east face of stone) died May 25, 1852, aged 50yrs 2m 2day
     Jennet (west face of stone) died Nov 20, 1870 aged 64yrs
     Jenet (sandstone somewhat buried and eroded) In memory of Jenet Duncan who ______
     Eliza Jane (Sandstone like one above) In memory of Eliza Jane Duncan _________
     Isabel In memory of Isabel Duncan who departed this life ______ the 5th A.D. _____aged 13, 15 d

There are almost 40 references to Duncans in the book and I would be happy to provide you copies of the information if you are interested. As an aside, I couldn't find any reference to the burial of Andrew W. Duncan (born 1802). Some of the other entries involve identification of the various farms owned by Duncans in Londonderry, listing them as members of the old United Presbyterian Church, etc.
Also, I have another interesting item that you might like. A distant cousin has given me the original copy of a letter written by John Duncan (son of Andrew W. Duncan) to my ggrandfather in the late 1870s. I think that my ggrandfather (Andrew Karr, brother of Mary Jane Karr Duncan) and John Duncan might have served together in the Civil War. The only reason I have to think this is because the letter was included with some letters that Andrew Karr wrote during the Civil War. I'll have to go back and check to see if John Duncan did serve in the same regiment from Coshocton County, Ohio.
Also, I have found out that after Mary Jane (Karr) Duncan passed away on May 4, 1875, John Duncan was remarried to an Ellen J. Francy on September 18, 1879. The Francy family were also some of the original settlers in Guernsey County.
I'm not sure if you are actually related to the Duncan or McKeown families that ended up in Page County, but would be happy to share all the additional information that I have. Also, if you are related to this family, you might be interested in knowing that I have been in contact with another Duncan descendent that lives in Utah (descended from John and Mary Jane Karr Duncan). I'm going to tell him that he needs to look at your Page County website.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for the hint about the Guernsey County Will Books. I did an internet search and found someone that has an index book that contains all of the will/estate entries in Ohio through 1850 and is willing to do "look ups". I've sent off a request, so hopefully that will result in more information about my ggggrandfather (John Karr who died in March 1844).
After receiving your email, I went back and did a little research on some old plat maps and census records for Londonderry Township in Guernsey County. I am positive that the Andrew that was involved in Adam Duncan's estate was my relative Andrew S. Karr. Adam Duncan and Andrew Karr (and Robert Milligan) had farms close to each other in the 1840 census. Andrew was the son of John Karr (my oldest confirmed ancestor mentioned above) and the younger brother of my gggrandfather Robert Karr, who was the father of Mary Jane Karr that married John Duncan (1834-1904).
Another coincidence: Andrew S. Karr's first wife was Elizabeth Milligan (1811-1873), who I believe was the daughter of Robert Milligan. That would make her the sister of your Jennet/Jane Milligan that married Adam Duncan 2. All three of these families (Adam Duncan, Robert Milligan and Andrew Karr) were living almost next to each other in 1840 according to the census. James Sleath is also living in the same area. I think Andrew was renting his land, because the information about all of these families living so close to each other comes from the 1840 Census, and Andrew is not shown as owning land in the 1840 Plat Map.
Andrew and Elizabeth Milligan Karr's first child was born in 1838. I believe Andrew came to Londonderry with his father and mother (John and Nancy Karr) about 1837.
I was just going through your website again and reading your story about your ancestor Robert Milligan Duncan being killed at Vicksburg. Is he buried there? I have to be in Mississippi three to four times a year on business. About four years ago, we finished with a court hearing earlier than expected and a friend drove me to Vicksburg for the afternoon. I don't know if you have ever been there, but it is a very emotional experience. It is overwhelming.
Mary Jane Karr Tidrick from Londonderry (Andrew S. Karr's sister) had five sons. All enlisted in the war and at least three were at Vicksburg. All five of her sons returned home safe, which is almost unbelievable.
Thanks for your help with my genealogy research and I will keep in touch if I find anything that might interest you.

I was just cleaning up or adding to some of the material on the Duncan family in Guernsey County. As always, thank you for providing much of the material that I have included in my family tree (source credited as you, of course).
If I have sent you the attached material previously, please forgive my memory loss. I have a book about Londonderry Township compiled by Alice Morton for the Guernsey County Genealogy Society. It includes grave readings for all of the cemeteries in Londonderry Township, plus other information. The book is now out of print, and no longer available through the Genealogy Society. I copied the pages pertaining to the Duncans a few years ago for another Duncan family researcher.
I'm also attaching some news articles from the Guernsey County paper that references John Duncan (son of Adam and Jennett and married to my ggrandfather's sister, Mary Jane Karr Duncan). By the way, I'm not certain that the Mary (Jane) Duncan that you have identified as the daughter of Adam and Jennett actually died in 1875 and might be confused with Mary Jane Karr Duncan. I believe the gravestone in Sunset View (old Londonderry Presbyterian) is for Mary Jane Karr Duncan (wife of John Duncan). Mary Jane Karr Duncan died May 4, 1875 and is buried in Sunset View. A letter written by John Duncan to my ggrandfather Andrew Karr confirms her death in 1875 (also attached). I have not located a burial location for John Duncan, but think he was probably buried in Adams Township with his second wife Ellen J. Francy.
Hope some of this material is of interest to you. Thanks as always with your help on my family that ended up in Page County. Did you ever wonder why all of these families ended up in Page County from Guernsey County (Ohio)?

Dear Mr. Sarrett,
We have been searching for information on our great-grandparents, Mary and John Duncan. On the page "Early Marriages in Page County" there is a listing of Mary Ann Duncan and John Duncan on September 14, 1869 and this date fits with my grandmother's and her brother's births. Do you have any suggestions as to how we might find more information on whether or not these are indeed our great-grandparents. Thanks so much for any help you can give. If you are unable, thanks for all the hard work you've done on Page County genealogy and history.
Sincerely, Ms. Terrill Williams, twill4mp@gte.net
The Sep 14, 1869 marriage was John T. DUNCAN (2nd Wife) and Mrs. Mary Ann (ALEXANDER) DUNCAN (Widow of ) See: Robert M. DUNCAN (My Gr-Gr-Grandparents..prs)

Subj: Page County Almshouse Records
Good morning,
Do you have knowledge as to whether or not there are records of the deaths of people who lived in the Page County Almshouse in Clarinda in the early 1900s (between 1910 and 1920)? We have been trying to find out when our great-grandfather died. His name was John F. Duncan. He was living in Clarinda with his daughter, Rosa (Duncan) Crout, in the 1900 census. In 1910 there is a John Duncan listed as living in the Page County Almshouse. Do you know of any way to find out if he died there? The State of Iowa has been unable to find any record of a death of John Duncan in Page County. He may have left the almshouse (if this person is even him) and died elsewhere but just wondered if you have had any thoughts as to how we might find out for sure. Thank you. Terrill Williams,
Sorry, I don't know anything about the "Page County Almhouse,
Have you checked Duncans buried in Page Co. If you can give me more info on your John F. Duncan, we may be able to help. ..prs

Your website is a wonderful resource; so much detail. Thank you for sharing it.
We are working on a project using your website and other sources to find our direct ancestors who immigrated to America and to find exactly where they were from.
Only one question we have at this time. On the page for Robert "Alex" Duncan, and on the Duncan Index page, his grandmother's name is shown as Janet (Duggan) Duncan. However, on the pages for Robert M. Duncan and Adam W. Duncan, she is Jennet Milligan (or other spellings of her given name).
We presume the latter is correct but wonder where (Duggan) came from?
In any case, we would like your verification. If you have anything more on her parents and grandparents, we would like to get that information also for the purpose of finding the immigrants.
I have come across a photo of Nellie Duncan (wife of Walter G or George W.) that was taken in Clarinda -- no date. It appears that she is more closely related to you than to me. Would you like the photo, or should I scan it, or do you have one already?
Marilyn (Fulk) Craig is ready to depart Iowa for her winter stay in Mesa, AZ.
We will get together sometime to talk about the relatives.
I had a photo of her at about age 12 in downtown Cleveland (my hometown) when she came to visit Aunt Mag. She was wearing a sleeveless blouse (shameful to have exposed arms!) that she vividly remembers. I think we will have a good time.
Hope you are doing well! Double Cousin Marg Larson, E-Mail: mlarson@esedona.net
Thanks, for the E-Mail.
I have been working on Adam W. & Robert M. DUNCAN pages, (See Rev. Date on bottom of Page.)
I havn't corrected Index page until up-dates are done. Her name is MILLIGAN nor DUGGAN
Her life-long companion was Rebecca DUGGAN, and we thought she was a Sister, this is not true. Say, HI to Marilyn (Fulk) Craig, she is my mother's 1st Cousin would love to talk to her if she has a E-Mail address. Would love to recieve photo of Nellie Roselle (Brown) Duncan (wife of Walter G or George W.) Will add it to DUNCAN Profile!.
