I beleive that Lillian SMALLEY was in Grant co., WI in 1902. Does anyone know if she was or who she may have married. She was the daughter of Samuel Cruise SMALLEY and Julia Ann JEWELL who settled in Nebraska.

Could there have possibly been a school that Lillian may have attended in Grant Co at that time?

Hannah's death record stated she died at her daughter's home and was buried at Wintersett. Mary E.A had a brother George and Lucius. Any information on any of this family would be appreciated. Also I'm wondering where Wintersett would be, if its a cemetery or a town. The only Wintersett I could find was in Iowa over by Des Moines.

I'm searching for information about the HEATON family which was in the Wyalusing area from the 1860s into the 1900 era.

The names in the family are THOMAS (father), THERESA(mother), sons: ALVARIUS, ALONZO ... and daughter CLARA BELLE. Thomas seemingly deserted the family in the 1880-90s; ClaraBelle died in her 20s; Alonzo married Estella Root of Wyalusing; and Alvarius moved out of the community. I only have "bits & pieces" and would love to hear whatever information you can add to this family's existence in the Wyalusing/Patch Grove area!! Do you know when THERESA died, or where she is buried???

Thomas's brother, JACOB & wife HARRIET also lived in the same area at the time of the 1860 census. Thereafter I have no information for them, so if you have anything (even a brief mention of them) in some form, it would certainly help!!!

Bob King Sat May 27 2000 9:54 pm
I am researching KING in Grant County, WI. My ggg grandfather, James KING obtained land in Grant Co. on July 10, 1839. Several other KING individuals (including William, Henry and Obed) obtained land in Grant Co. on or about the same date. I'm assuming they are either James' sons or brothers. I believe James' wife name was Sophronia BARBER (or SPRAGUE). A John BARBER obtained land in Grant Co. on July 8, 1839 and Augustus BARBER obtained land in Grant Co. on July 10, 1839. They could likely be brothers or cousins of Sophronia. James and Sophronia's son, Philander KING, married Margaret FLEHARTY, daughter of William Littleton FLEHARTY, who obtained land in Grant Co. on July 10, 1839 and again on January 5, 1841.

I'll be glad to exchange information with anyone who is also researching these names.

Looking for infromation on a CHESTER PRATT who married a SARAH JANE WAYNE in Crawford '1862,( I sent for a copy of that marriage as it does exist)but is beleived to be burried in Fennimore WI they had a son CHARLES ROCKWELL PRATT who married a MARY ELEANOR POSEY IN 1894, Charles was born in WI but they find no birth or marriage record in crawford, since Chester is beleived to be burried in Fennimore maybe that is where Charles is born and I haven't found a census for Grant Co so I can't check if they were there. Charles and Mary moved to ND after they married and had 7 surviving children one of which was my grandfather. I was also wondering because I was told by my dad that Mary was Indian maybe they got married on the reservation if so would the county have records? Anyone with any information?

I'd like to know more about THOMAS HEATON, his wife THERESA (HENNESSY), and their children ALVARIUS, CLARA BELLE, and ALONZO while they lived in the Wyalusing/Patch Grove area during the years approximately 1860 through 1910. Thomas was a "master carpenter", as was his brother, JACOB HEATON (wife HARRIET), who was also in the area in 1860.


ALVARIUS & ALONZO moved to WY about 1900, but Theresa stayed in Grant County (according to census records).

I'd like to hear more about "their story" of life during that time, if you should know! Are you a descendant of Thomas or Jacob Heaton???? Do you happen to know when/where THOMAS or THERESA HEATON died, were buried?

They lived on the farm for about 7 years before moving to Eagle River, Houghton Co, MI on August 11, 1855. Henry was employed at the Central Mine and, unfortunately, was killed in a mining accident on April 10, 1856.

I would like to request a census look-up for the 1850 Federal Census of British Hollow, Grant Co., WI and am interested in finding Henry and his family enumerated at that time and place.
