My great-grandfather, William Shannon COOK came to Grant Co. WI. in 1840. He married Anna BATES in Hazel Green, WI. 9 Nov. 1847. They lived for a while at Benton, then settled near Livingston in the Clifton-Arthur area. Their 10 children were all born there. They moved to LaHarpe, Hancock Co. IL. in about 1875, and were in Kansas by 1880. Were the other COOK's living at Clifton in the 1850's related? I have found no parents, siblings or cousins to connect with William S. or Anna (BATES) COOK. Sure would appreciate any help. Thanks [email protected]


Bob Nobis Sat Feb 14 16:17:00 1998

Looking for info on the death and burial of Heinrich Ferdinand NOBIS and Ida (Edith) Pauline NOBIS (KRAUSSE) in or near Lancaster.

Concerning the death of Heinrich, The Fennimore Times, 10 July 1907, in an article concerning the visit to Lancaster by Richard NOBIS, indicated that Richard had not visited Lancaster since they moved to Illinois (Hanover, Jo Daviess co.) 33 years earlier, after the death of his father. This places the year of death at about 1873-1874.

The newspaper article also, indicated that Richard NOBIS's mother [Ida (Edith) NOBIS] died two years before his visit, and the body was buried in Lancaster, Grant County, Wisconsin. This places the year of death of Ida at about 1905. It is believed that she may have died in Hanover, Jo Daviess c., IL, but the body was brought to Lancaster for burial. Most likely next to the grave of Heinrich NOBIS. The article also indicated that Ida was a great friend of grandma WEBER. I would also like to identify who grandma WEBER was.

I am researching an early settler to the Platteville area named John CLAYTON. He immigrated from England and took up farming in what was to become Big Patch some time between 1838 and 1840. His wife was Thomeson (Hannah) CHAPMAN. They were married with two daughters, Mary and Jane, when they arrived in Big Patch. They had seven more children, including my great-great grandmother Sarah M. CLAYTON (who married John KOPP, son of Carroll KOPP also of Big Patch who came from Prussia in the early 1840s). I am interested in learning more about the CLAYTONs and locating descendents.

I am researching a family of early Platteville settlers named CHAPMAN. My 3-great grandmother Thomeson (Hannah) CHAPMAN married John CLAYTON and immigrated from England in the 1830s. They settled in what was to become Big Patch just south of Platteville sometime between 1838 and 1840. There were three prominent CHAPMANs living in the Platteville during this period: John, Robert and Thomas. They all arrived in the 1830s. (Robert arrived July, 1834). I suspect Thomeson was related. Was John CHAPMAN the father of Robert, Thomas and Thomeson?

I am researching a family of early Grant Co. settlers named KOPP. Carroll (Carl) KOPP immigrated from Duttweiler, Prussia in the early 1840s and settled in what was to become Big Patch just south of Platteville. They had three children when they arrived. They had seven more in Big Patch, including my great-great grandfather John KOPP. They farmed, as did their neighbors the CLAYTONs and the CHAPMANs. The three families made up nearly half the Big Patch population of 60. They intermarried. I descend from all three families. I'd like to learn more about Big Patch and the KOPP family. I'd liked to locate interested descendents.
