REAVELL, RICE, TOWNSEND, WINSWORTH

John W. McCoy Sun Sep 26 16:31:07 1999
Looking for descendants of Lydia E. WINSWORTH, daughter of George and Rhoda WINSWORTH, English immigrants who arrived in Grant Co., WI before 1850. Lydia was born about 1835 in Ohio. She married in Grant Co. (1) 18 sep 1853 to Samuel A. RICE (b. about 1825 OH d. May 1855 Grant Co., WI), (2) 27 jul 1856 to Isaac W. REAVELL (b. 1833, d. bef. 1864), (3) Lysander A. TOWNSEND (son of Sewell and Polly, b. Erie Co., NY about 1815). Lydia was the mother of Mary E. RICE b. 1855, apparently after the death of her first husband, and had several more children by her second and third husbands. As my relative Ezra Wiley RICE of Patch Grove was one of the appraisers of the estate of Samuel A. RICE in 1855, and lived in the same vicinity, I speculate that Samuel was a cousin of Ezra, and thus Samuel is the most important clue I have found so far to the identity Ezra's father, Abner RICE who lived in Madison Co., NY in 1820. Can anyone tell me what became of Mary E. RICE, or her mother Lydia E. WINSWORTH RICE REAVELL TOWNSEND? How was Samuel A. RICE related to Ezra RICE or to any of the other RICE families in Grant Co., WI?

EVANS, HEER, LONG

Jennifer Heer Norman Fri Sep 17 19:28:26 1999
Hi,
I'm looking for any info regarding one of my great uncles, Rufus Smith HEER. He lived in Hazel Green for I think his whole life. He married, and had a daughter Muriel HEER LONG. She lived in a nursing home there until recently. She was born in 1904, while her father was born in 1858 to David H. HEERand Martha EVANS HEER in Jo Daviess cty, IL. Apparently when he died all his belongings (don't know what this includes) were dropped down a well. So little is known to even his descendents. I am reseraching all of his siblings as well as their descendents. If you have any kind of info about this family please contact me. I welcome all emails.

UPDATE NOV/2003:

Rufus S. Heer (b.1858) of Galena, IL married Alice Wilson, b. 1881, they had one daughter (I am pretty sure she is still living, really) Murial J. Heer m. Virgil Long at Platteville, WI. They had two kids; Nancy Ann Long, b. 1931 and Robert Wilson Long, b. 1928. And no marriage for Nancy, but Robert did marry and I am sort of in touch with Rufus´┐Ż great grandson, David (Debra) Long of Louisville, KY. Rufus was a veterinarian, went to school in Ohio. Rufus was the first of 17 children of David and Martha Evans Heer of East Galena, IL.

Brian Christensen Sun Aug 29 15:05:01 1999
I am researching the WILMOT family of Potosi. I am a descendant of John WILMOT, brother of Isaac WILMOT. Isaac's son was Judge Edward M. Wilmot who wrote the weekly article "With the Potosi Pioneers" for the local paper in the 1920s. In his June 23, 1926, article the Judge wrote about Bill PARENTEAU'S fight with a bear. He wrote the following: "Bill PARENTEAU, the man engaged in this bear fight, was born and grew to young manhood in the town of Potosi about 77 years ago, a son of Martin and Elizabeth PARENTEAU, early French settlers in these parts. He was a cousin of E.M. Wilmott, who with other old timers still living here well remember Billy PARENTEAU as he was then called. He left her in the late sixties and went to Colorado." Does anyone have any additional information on the PARENTEAU family? I would like to know how they are related to the WILMOTS.

Shirley Vinsand [email protected] Looking for family members of Nellie Emery Clark.Her father was the minister at Rockville Grant Co Wisconsin, and also British Hollow, and surronding areas. Her mother died 10 march 1878, at Rockville Wisconsin, She is buried at British Hallow Cem.In the old part. From the west road going to the east third row in.To the north side. It is a broken white stone with just her death date left and the remainder of the stone is now leaning against the stone in front of it. From Nellies diary she wrote, 1 March1878,I've lost my mother. She died last Sunday 10 March 1878. We buried her yesterday and it seemed to me that I could not give my darling mother up. There was a large funeral. Mr Mather the M E P . Elder preached her funeral sermon from the words Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.The ladies dressed Ma in black for they thought she would look more natural. A copy of the diary has been copied and put in the Historical at Lancaster Wisconsin papers. Nellie later moved to Humboldt Co Iowa where she was a teacher and followed her brother here. Soon her father Edward Emery 1807-1890 moved to Humboldt Iowa and is buried there also. Her mother was Margaret Endicott 1815-1878. Margaret was a descendant of Mass Gov John Endecott 1588-1665 who came from England to Massachusetts with his wife, Elizabeth Cogan 1606-1630.in 1628. Elizabeths Cogan line can be traced back to the 1100,s which we don't have. Nellie was born in Grant Co on 20 Sept 1859 and married Lester Clark son of Andrew F Clark and Mary Franklin. The married on Nellies birthday in 1882 at Grant Co Wisconsin.Children Allen ,Forest,Nellie, and a stillborn child, which she also died at that time.
