I am trying to trace a NOAH ALBERT PARKER Jr (born 7-31-1857) and his wife MARY STRANAHAN (1854 to 2-25-1879). Both are believed to have been born in Indiana (perhaps Tipton, IN) and also married in Indiana. They were residents of Clarinda, Iowa some time after their marriage probably in the mid 1870's.

Tho James and Mary lived part of the time in Gentry Co., MO her family must have remained in Page Co, for it was there that she was living and gave birth to her last set of twins while her husband was off serving in the Civil War. He was released early to come home to Page Co and care for his surviving young children. He apparenty md (2) in late 1865 a young woman who was helping him with the children, Sarah Jane BROWN, and they had a large family of their own. Born in IL, Sarah's family was living in Nodway Tpw, Page Co IA by 1860.
In 1870 James and Sarah were living in Hawleyville. Then they moved to Missouri, and eventually to Kansas. I would like to know who the parents of Mary Jane PHILLIPS and Sarah Jane BROWN are.

Dear Sir:
First let me thank you for more information about my Pinkerton family. I knew about the names, I just didn't have some of the dates. Now I have somewhere to start looking again.
I want to clear up a grave error in your report. Arthur Robert Pinkerton did not die at the young age of three years. He was my grandfather and lived until April 16, 1966. He married my grandmother, Almyra Pearl Sanders, b. 15, January 1892 in Chicago, Illinois, August 15, 1917. They had three children, a girl, a girl, and a son, Arthur Robert Pinkerton Jr. b. July 10, 1927 in Tampa, Florida and d. 1990 - 1999, St Petersburg, Florida. The first daughter married and had four daughters, all still living and the second daughter married and had one daughter, still living. Since the daughters of Arthur and Pearl are still living, I will not give you additional details.
Arthur was a member of the first law class at the University of Florida in 1915 or 1916, and was a judge in the State.
I hope this helps you clear up this mistake. If you have any questions about this, please e-mail me.
Sincerely, Cheryl Butler

Thanks, for the E-Mail, but you have not showed any "Proof" that the Arthur Robert PINKERTON, 2nd s/o Robert,5 & 2nd Wife Maggie L. (Cockrane) Pinkerton, b. c1886, Waupaca, WI. d. 1889, a3y This Arthur Robert Pinkerton, has been documented by [REF:#39] Page 4

CC: "Tom & Holly Kobza" thkobza@jvlnet.com
Interesting response - it comes across somewhat rude - was that really what you were trying for?. I confess that I am rather curious as to what proof you demanded of Holly that Arthur Robert Pinkerton died young? She told me that since they could not find any information about him, they assumed he died young. Not much "proof" there. Actually, we have talked to Holly Sprize Kobza (apparently she got married since sending you the data) several times over the past couple of years and I am sure that she now acknowledges that her original research on my grandfather was in error.
I confess, too, that your terseness tempted me to say that I know that my grandfather Arthur Robert Pinkerton, was the same "Arthur Robert Pinkerton who was the 2nd s/o Robert, 5 & 2nd Wife Maggie L. (Cockrane) Pinkerton, b. c1886, Waupaca, WI" because he told me that he was and to leave it at that. He did, after all, live near us for many years and with us for a few. I really would, however, like to see the mistakes about my branch of the family that appear on your web site corrected, so I offer the additional information below.
Actually, Holly already had evidence that my grandfather had survived - though she may not have fully recognized it at the time. A while back she sent me a copy of several photographs and a newspaper article about Aunt Jennie Campbell Pinkerton and asked me if I knew her (Aunt Jennie is listed as 2nd. Dau: JENNIE C. PINKERTON on your web site). The answer was yes, I knew Aunt Jennie - I had met her several times when I was a child. Also, I already had a copy of the article that my mother had collected. The article was published two days before Aunt Jennie's 90th birthday in 1971. It related news of a reception for Aunt Jennie's birthday and also included something of a detailed summary of her life In the part of the article that explains how Jennie C. Pinkerton of Waupaca, Wisconsin came to meet her husband William Wesley Holland, it states"
"A man of means, Pinkerton had bought a large plantation in Cuba and when he died a few years later, since his sons Walter, then a prominent physician, and Arthur, an attorney, were unable to take time off, Jennie went to Havana to dispose of the property."
This single sentence references, in order, my great-grandfather Robert Pinkerton, my great-uncle Walter, my grandfather Arthur Robert, and my great-aunt Jennie. It offers proof that my grandfather Arthur R. Pinkerton was alive at the time of his father's death. Aunt Jennie, by the way, did live a long life, but she did not live to be 109 years old as suggested on your site - she died in Fort Meyers, Florida on September 15, 1974 (check the SSDI for proof). Jennie Campbell Pinkerton met her future husband in Cuba while there looking after her father's plantation. They were married, by the way, in Key West, Florida in 1909. American nationals were not allowed to be married in Cuba at that time, so they took the boat over to Key West and married.
Aunt Jennie's interview said that my grandfather Arthur was a lawyer and that is correct. He was a graduate of the first - ever - law school class of the University of Florida at Gainesville. I have a photocopy of his year book and my aunt (Arthur's second daughter) has the original. As I said in my original email, he later became a Judge in Tampa, Florida.
In addition to the referenced article, and to my own and my mother's personal knowledge, all of grandfather's personal records containing his birth date indicate that he was born on April 12, 1886 in Waupaca, Wisconsin. If you want a public record, I have my grandfather's death certificate, dated April 16, 1966, recorded in Orange County, Florida, where he died. On the death certificate, he is listed as Arthur Robert Pinkerton, date of birth April 12, 1886, place of birth Waupaca, Wisconsin. I also have my mother's birth certificate. Her father is listed as Arthur R. Pinkerton, and his birthplace is listed as Waupaca, Wisconsin.
Besides these documents, there are all of these other niggling little coincidences, like grandfather having among his personal effects a photograph of his parents Robert R. Pinkerton, Margaret L. Cochrane, his older half brother Walter Pinkerton, his sister, Jennie Campbell Pinkerton and himself. And his continued contact throughout his life with his sister Jennie C. Pinkerton (because she stayed in close contact, there are several other pictures of her over the years).
I assume that this is adequate to convince you that I do, in fact, know who my grandfather was and that he was the Arthur Robert Pinkerton born to Robert R. Pinkerton and his second wife Margaret (Maggie) Cochrane. If not, what "proof" are you looking for?
Cheryl Butler jackvbutler@worldnet.att.net

Cheryl, Asking for "proof" is not rude, in your E-Mail (Date: Sat, 10 Nov 2001 7:20:01 PM Eastern Standard Time) you did NOT give me any explanation, why Holly (Sprise) Kobza listed Arthur Robert Pinkerton died at age 3y;
You did NOT give me any Census records where he was in the same household.;
You did NOT cite his Birth Certificate listing his parentage nor a Death Certificate with same.
I wasn't indicating that you do not know your Grandfather, just that we had information that was contradictory to yours, and will be conceded to, when any other proof of the opposite is provided, which is logical and reasonable and not opposed by any other evidence.
Thanks for your clarification. See: Arthur Robert PINKERTON
Have a nice day!..prs

4th E-Mail: Date: Date: 13 Nov 2001 at: 2:51:01 PM Pacific Standard Time
Paul, Actually, you did not ask for anything in your first reply, you merely made challenging statements that were clearly intentionally curt and, yes, even rude. A request for evidence would probably have looked more like a question.

And since it was an initial contact, I did not think it necessary to include an extreme amount of detail. Sorry, but since I was talking about my grandfather whom I knew personally, and not some distant multi-great grandfather, it simply did not occur to me that you would think that I might get him mixed up with some other Arthur R. Pinkerton.

I am happy to see, though, that you are apparently now seeking a higher level of evidence than you apparenly sought when you originally created the site - if you follow up on it, it will undoubtedly make your on-line efforts more accurate and useful.

You have a nice day, yourself. Cheryl Butler jackvbutler@worldnet.att.net

Dear Paul,
Realizing both of us had Pinkertons in Page Co. IA., I wonder if you would be kind to help me with this: At the Clarinda City Cemetery:
PINKERTON, Ada Bertha, d. Oct 7, 1950, aged 68y, 10m, 14d (P.D. Pinkerton lot)
PINKERTON, Clyde, Oct 24, 1875 - Oct 8, 1918 (P.D. Pinkerton lot)
PINKERTON, Damaris, Jan 31, 1852 - Feb 7, 1937 (P.D. Pinkerton lot)
PINKERTON, James Albert,
PINKERTON, Phoebe D. FINLEY, his wife, Jan 31, 1852 - Feb 7, 1937
PINKERTON, P. D., May 27, 1848 - Nov 7, 1911
PINKERTON, Wilbur C., Oct 23, 1879 - July 21, 1953

I will claim James Albert.......nothing behind his name, so do you think he is actually buried there or just listed on Phoebe's stone?
They did have a son Clyde, from a census I have his born 1876..so that is one yr. off with the above Clyde.
However since the above Clyde is buried on the P. D. lot I assume it is another person.
James Albert and Phoebe also had a son b 1879, and I don't have his name, which could be the Wilbur C., that is, unless he belongs to the P. D. Pinkerton group.
When they are listed alphabetically, grouping them with a family is a little harder. Do you know who Wilbur C. is buried near?
Thanks kindly if you can help me.
I was actually searching for James Albert Pinkerton's cousins that also went to the same area.
1.) Joseph Karnaghan and his wife Ellen McCullough...and I did find them listed.
Is there any way you can tell if they were buried by James Albert Pinkerton.
2.) The third I was searching for was Josephs brother, William Karnaghan..and I couldn't find him.
Thanks again,

I can confirm the information you stated is correct. Ebenezers wife was Mary McCreary. You might want to save my E-mail and send those requesting information about those Pinkerton individuals on to me.
What I asking was if.. James Albert PINKERTON is actually buried there beside his wife? And is Clyde and Wilbur buried right beside them?
I am very complete on the Karnaghans also and I do have the family genealogy...again from the cemetery listing on line I was wondering if Joseph is indeed buried by Ellen.
And, I had not found the Addenda Section of Elizabeth. Again, I can not tell it its just stating that Elizabeth is buried there and not W. S.
My beloved just told me we will travel there over Labor day and get pics of the cemetery stones, which can answer my questions. I have a ton of Pictures to take in Page Co. I use a digital camera and works well for placing the cemetery pictures direcly into my genealogy program.
The above Ebenezer Pinkerton was from South Carolina, Preble Co. Ohio, Peoria Co. IL
He was a brother to my 2nd great grandfather Samuel.
Samuels descendants also went to Page Co., but through daughters. I am through Samuel, male lineage and they went north to Adair Co. IA. I will be returned there for burial with the host of Pinkertons. I do cemetery look ups in Adair Co. I wish it had an administrator like you, you have a lovely site in Page Co. I have tons and tons of genealogy materials that I could post.......and take a peek at it, he doesn't post anything. It is dull. Keep up your good work!
Thanks again, Anna Pinkerton Richards, Bolivar, MO. farich@alltel.net

I do Not know is they are buried together or not, all our records ar listed alphabatized.
We would love to post the Cemetery headstone pictures on the IAPAGE site. ..prs

Dear Paul,
I have two pictures (unknown) that I was wanting to post to the IAPAGE sight, however I didn't find a place. Do you imagine a place to allow for this could be arranged?
I have saved both pics to jpeg. Both were taken at Wilkinsen studio on the Northwest corner of the square, Clarinda IA.
I am from the "other" Pinkerton lineage. My lines are very complete. I have been doing genealogy for years. It was from my line that Clara E. Pinkerton married Charles Duncan in 1917. I understand how this ties in with your family. And, I have corresponded with you a few times, perhaps you remember.
Thanks kindly, Anna Pinkerton Richards farich@alltel.net

Anna, sure I remember you (See See: Your Pinkerton Queries)
We were waiting for some Cemetery Headstone pictures you promised.
Just "attached" the .JPG file and send me a E-Mail with the pertant information.

Thanks kindly Paul,
I am searching to see if anyone else may have these same pictures, or if anyone from Page Co. recognizes them. Both were taken at Wilkinsen studio on the Northwest corner of the square, Clarinda IA. I don't necessarily think they are from the lineage of Clara E. Pinkerton that married Charles Duncan. There were several of my kin that settled in the area...they might even be Glasgow's ???
I don't imagine I will make it to Page Co. now to take cemetery pictures like I had intended over this Labor Day, because I have a "new" grandbaby I must go see!
Thanks again for your posting these!

Dated: Mon, December 21, 2009 2:24:29 PM
I was searching for a John Pinkerton, whom is my great grandfather.
He had a daughter, Jennie, my grandmother, whom I knew.
My information is, born may 28 1868, in Shushan NY, Washington county. Died November 11,1950, in Glens Falls NY, Warren county.
My info lists her name as Margaret Jennie Pinkerton (Stewart).
I found some of this also in a Volune -II. Pinkerton Family Profile, which is referenced in 10 pages titled John R. Pinkerton, 1797-1876 Page Co., Ia. Genealogy & Family Profiles.
This is followed by Washington Co., New York Pinkertons.
This John Pinkerton was married to Sarah Ann McCallister, born in 1840, in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.
I hope this helps. I thank you for any help, and wish you a Merry Christmas.

A William POINTER was on the 1850 Page Co. Census with wife Elizabeth, children James 13, Ward 11, Alice 8, Franklin 7, David 6, John 2, and Francis 1. All but Francis were born in Missouri. Francis was born in IA. The family is believed to have been in Clinton Co. Missouri before moving to Page Co. Where did this family go after 1850? Is there a connection between the families of William POINTER b. c. 1803 and the family of Vincent POINTER b. c. 1840 and found in Page Co. after 1870?
Seeking information regarding family of Vincent Woodrow POINTER b. c. 1840, m. 1871 Rebecca E. Hardee in Page Co. IA. Children may be: Daphne, Vincent E., Ara, E. "Virgil", and Ole all born in Page Co. IA. A Vincent POINTER b. c. 1803 m. Ara Ann Reece in Montgomery Co. IN. in 1835. Could Vincent POINTER b. c. 1840 with daughter Ara be their son? He did not appear on the 1850 Census with the elder Vincent in Indiana. The HARDEE family was also in Montgomery Co. IN. Any help with these two families who were in Page Co. between 1850 & 1880 would be appreciated.

Submitter: Grace Walsh Researching Pugh surname
Dear Paul,
I have been researching my dad's family from SC for a couple of years now. I emailed you once probably 2-3yrs ago about Native American search. I remember thinking then that I wished my surnames matched yours because your name comes up just about everywhere I click.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I found a Wm Pugh buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Spartanburg SC who I beleive is my gggrandfathers brother. I called Wayne Harris at Floyd's Mortuaries there and he pull the funeral record for William. He is listed as being born in Creston (Union Co.) Iowa. So I have been online all morning searching thru Iowa Genweb records and am finding Pugh's everywhere. I had to laugh when I just came across the first census taken for Page County Iowa and found your note saying you'd share info with others researching the same surnames.
I might add my keen sense of premonition must have led me here. Please drop me a line so we can compare notes.
THANK YOU! Grace Walsh gpwalsh@mediaone.net

John, Thanks for the E-Mail.
My PUGH family "Connection" is through Sarah PUGH, 1820-1862, 2nd Dau of Evan PUGH Sr. (1788-1847) & Elizabeth Unknown of Shawnee Twp., Fountain Co., IN. She married Robert WILSON, 17 Jan 1841, in Fountain Co., IN. and moved to Page Co., IA. where she died on 10 Jan 1862, buried in Davis Cemetery.
You mentioned that your "Samuel's parents were Evan Pugh and Elizabeth Ayles. Samuel was my gt. gt. grandfather."
I don't have Evan's wife last name, and I don't have your Samuel, b. 1815 as part of the Fountain Co. Evan's family.
No Son (b. 1815) can be identified in the 1820, 1830 or 1840 Census for Evan's family.
In Evan's W.&T. of May 2, 1846 he mentions only 7 Children? No mention of Samuel PUGH?

Illinois has listed my gt. grandfather David Pugh place of birth as Ia. but because he was married in Fountain Co. INDIANA I thought the census taker had made an error and abbreviated Indiana incorrectly. Is it possible my Samuel Pugh had moved to Page Co. Iowa with his sister Sarah Pugh Wilson?

Just touching base with you to see if you have any thoughts on the family info I sent you? Its exciting to know that there may be family link and its especially exciting to know that someone as experienced with genealogy research as you are may be linked to my family. I come across your name almost weekly as I research my family. Just today I found you as an author of how to research your Indian family roots.

Paul, while looking through Page Co., IA items, I saw you have a Sarah PUGH listed. do you have any more information on her? I am interested in seeing if she connects to my John W. PUGH. Here is what I know about John W. PUGH:
John W. Pugh born 8 June 1846 in Preston Co., W.Va. married 6 Sept 1869 in Warren Co., IA to Florence CHERRY born 18 Apr 1851 in Chillicothe, Ross Co., OH. They had 12 children. John died 17 May 1921 in Clarinda, Page Co., IA.
I don't know if he died in the hospital there or if he might have been visiting family or friends. Was wondering if your Sarah could have been an aunt to my John. I can't seem to make a connection to anyone that might have been John's parents.
John and Florence lived most of their lives in Warren Co., IA and a few years in Polk Co., IA.
John died in Page Co., and Florence died on 17 Sept 1924 in Grand River twp, Wayne Co., IA at the home of her brother Arthur Cherry. Both are buried in the Norwalk Cemetery, Norwalk, Warren Co., IA Any light you can shed on this would be appreciated.
