Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Esther Ann Faulkner {Gen 3}


It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Esther Ann Faulkner (Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Wayne Co, New York, February 4th 1828 to parents Robert Faulkner and his wife Sally Ann.

Esther Ann married (1) Asa West (b. abt 1820 d. UNK) about 1843 in New York. She married (2) James Ryan (b. abt 1813 d. 1876) on June 19th 1852 in Kosciusko, IN.


One child was born to Esther Ann and Asa West:
  • Sarah West b. 1843 d. UNK m. Alonzo Sherburn


Children born to Esther Ann and James Ryan include:
  • Michael Ryan b. UNK d. 29 Oct 1871
  • James G Ryan b. 1854 d. UNK
  • Esther A Ryan b. 1856 d. 31 Oct 1874
  • Mary Ryan b. 1858 d. 2 May 1873
  • John W Ryan b. 5 Jun 1859 d. 7 Feb 1937 m. Mary J Ralston
  • Alma Emily "Emma" Ryan b. 12 Apr 1865 d. 4 Oct 1910 m. Wilson E Thrush 


Esther Ann Faulkner West Ryan had a perhaps difficult life. It is not know what happened to her first husband, Asa West, but less than 9 years later she was married to James Ryan. Life with husband #2 wasn't any easier. Esther Ann is found on the 1850 census as Esther Ann West living with her parents in Indiana. Her daughter Sarah is not in the household. On the 1860 census Esther Ann Ryan is found living with the McClanahan family, again none of her children are with her. In 1870 she is living with the Leedy family, and in 1880 she is living alone, listed as divorced. Her children appear together on only one census, 1870, living with their father James. Both Esther Ann and James remained in Kosciusko Co, Indiana.

Indianian Republican 2/6/1890
Indianian Republican 2/13/1890
Her obituary 2/6/1890 Indianian Republican, noted that her death was reported a suicide from poison. It was reported that she was partially demented and on more than one occasion had tried to commit suicide. On 2/13/1890 in the Indianian Republican, her son and daughter disputed the suicide because there was no evidence.

Esther Ann Faulkner West Ryan died February 6th 1890. Her burial location remains unknown.

Notes From My Grandmother | Ashby Lineage and Genealogy, Part 3


Somehow, much of my grandmother's hand written and (badly) typed notes and research wound up in my possession. Traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles and back to Chicago again. It sat, in the dark of my mother's closet, until my dad passed and my mom decided to begin her great purge. Knowing I had picked up the torch, the next generation to pursue the Greatest Hobby on Earth, the papers came to live with me. Unsure for many years on just what to do with them, I have decided to bring them out and share them with you - transcribed, of course - no one can read my grandmother's handwriting! But in her own words; mistakes, rambling sentences, and all. I think she will be pleased her work and her writing are once again out in the light.


Grandma didn't write a story about the Ashbys. At least not one that I found in my collection. She incorporated some of her research in other family lines and just left typed bios and snippets in her "Ashby" envelope. I will share the contents over the next few weeks - and add the genealogy as I have come to know it.


Ashby Family misc, con't ........




Priscilla B Ashby was the second child and second daughter of the seven Ashby children born to Jesse Ashby and his wife Elizabeth Hays Wilson. Her biography reads as follows:



Mrs Priscilla B Twining Nonagenarian
This Good Lady Is Nearly 92 Years Old and Has Been a Resident of Iowa Since 1839

We this week present the likeness of Mrs Priscilla B Twining. She is well known to most Adams county people as was also her husband, who resided in this city previous to his death in 1897. Her maiden name was Priscilla B Ashby, and she was the daughter of Jesse Ashby, who died in 1879 at the advanced age of 92 years. It will thus be seen that Mrs Twining comes from a long lived stock. She was born in Preston County, Virginia, July 18, 1817, and is at present time almost 92 years of age. For some time after her birth her father owned a plantation in the "Cheat River country" of Virginia. At a later date, 1828, he removed with his family to Ohio, from which state he came in 1839 to Iowa, settling in Washington County where he resided 37 years. It was here that Mrs Twining became acquainted with her future husband, Rev E W Twining, a Methodist itinerant minister, to whom she married August 28, 1849. One son, Jesse L Twining, of this city was the issue of this union, and Grandma Twining makes her home with this son in Corning at the present time, tenderly cared for by her son and his family.

After their marriage, Mrs Twining and her husband made their home in Washington for a season and later in various places, as is the case in the ministerial life. Mr Twining had assignments at Des Moines, Iowa City and other important places beside being presiding elder of the Muscatine district. From the character of these assignments it will be seen he was regarded as one of the most prominent Methodist divines in the Hawkeye state.

As the wife of an itinerant minister, Mrs Twining has had quite an interesting experience with the frontier life of Iowa, especially in and around Washington and Des Moines. Mr Twining had the latter charge in 1856, preaching in the church where now stands the magnificent Iowa Loan and Trust building.

The family remained in Des Moines for five years and Mrs Twining remembers well when the capital was removed from Iowa City to that place. She also remembers the big war dance participated in by about 500 Indians on the "commons" where the court house and many of the largest business blocks of Des Moines now stand.

Necessarily the record of her life is very much identified with that of her husband, who was more than ordinarily successful in the ministerial field. When advanced age made it necessary for him to retire from active duties of the ministry, he and Mrs Twining came to this city, where they made their home in 1876. Rev Mr Twining was one of the most active gentleman interested in the founding of Cornell College, at Mount Vernon, Iowa, and it is said he personally secured the first teacher for the institution. He died on May 24, 1897, at the advanced age of 84 years, and since that time Grandma Twining has made her home with her son.

Mary Ashby, sister of Mrs Twining and the oldest child in the family taught the first school ever held in Washington, Iowa over 65 years ago, when only a few settlers had squatted on the prairies of Iowa. The school house was a log cabin; her pupils sat on benches hewn out of logs, in front of a fireplace, and wrote with goose quill pens, with ink made from indigo. Mrs Twining's has been an eventful life, and in her old age it is a pleasure for friends and loved ones to minister to her, and in some small measure recompense for the great service her life has been to her family and to the world.

We have remarked upon the coincidence of her birthday anniversary and that of Rev Father Rowley, father of Mrs J L Twining, being on the same day. Both old folks live in the same home and each succeeding year sees a celebration of the event. Ms Twinning is one year the senior of Father Rowley.

~March 31, 1909

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Robert Nelson Faulkner {Gen 3}


It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Robert Nelson Faulkner (Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Ontario Co, New York, January 20th 1822 to parents Robert Faulkner and his wife Sally Ann.

Robert 'Nelson' married (1) Julia Ann King (b. 1831 d. 1890) on September 26th 1847 in Wabash Co, Indiana. He married (2) Mary J Johnson (b. UNK d. UNK) on October 22nd 1891 in Indiana.



Children born to Robert 'Nelson' and Julia Faulkner include:
  • Barbara Ann Faulkner b. 8 Mar 1849 d. 16 Oct 1918 m. Jeremiah R Hoagland
  • John Wesley Faulkner b. 7 Sep 1850 d. 27 Dec 1936 m. Alice Victoria Norris
  • Rachel Faulkner b. abt 1854 d. bef 1890 m. John O Kegg
  • Isaac Newton Faulkner b. 1856 d. 9 Feb 1912
  • Louisa Faulkner b. 23 Jun 1857 d. 17 Jan 1940 m. William J Klingel
  • Hannah M Faulkner b.  25 Nov 1863 d. 9 Dec 1919 m. William W Munson



Robert 'Nelson' was a farmer who sometimes went by 'Robert', sometimes by 'R N' and most often by 'Nelson'. He was hard to find in the US census schedules due to the fact that the enumerators really butchered his surname! He may have fought in the Civil War - his brother did - but I have not discovered anything conclusive yet.

Robert Nelson Faulkner died July 4th 1892 and is buried in Hillcrest Cemetery in Pierceton Twp, Kosciusko County IN. Julia Ann King Faulkner died June 1st 1890 and is buried with her husband. To date no further information has been found on wife #2, whom Robert married just 8 months prior to his death.

Ashby Family misc, con't ........


Mary Ashby was the eldest of the seven Ashby children born to Jesse Ashby and his wife Elizabeth Hays Wilson. Her obituary reads as follows:


Mary Ashby First School Teacher in Washington, Very Early Settler, Dies.

~5/24/1899
In the death of Mary Ashby, better known to all the old settlers of Washington as "Aunt Polly", Washington loses one of its most highly esteemed citizens and one whose name will ever be associated with the early education of this city as well as the making of the commonwealth of Iowa. She was the first teacher that ever presided over a school room in Washington, and that was sixty years ago, when only a few settlers had squatted on the prairie here and there over a territory now known as the beautiful city of Washington. Washington's first school and Washington's first school teacher are now no more. 

Her death occurs at a memorable time in the history of our city schools - -in a year when the "old school" is being replaced by the new. The last old school building has been torn down, and after this year Washington young people will go to buildings entirely new or comparatively so. The first school in which "Aunt Polly" taught was a log cabin, located in southwest Washington, on the lot just north of the Seceder church. There her pupils sat in front of a fireplace, on benches hewn out of logs, and wrote with goose-quill pens ans used indigo for ink.

The deceased died last evening at 7:15 o'clock at the home of her sister, Mrs E W  Dicken, on south Iowa Street. She has always made her home with this sister. She had enjoyed very good health until about a year ago when she fell and broke her hip. Since that time she has been helpless.

She often attended old settlers meetings and there it was everyone deemed it a privilege to give her homage and praise, for she had just claims on old citizenship. She was reticent, however, in speaking of her own deeds, yet was appreciative of every good favor in word or works.

She was born in Allegheny Co, Maryland, the 18th day of July, 1812, and was therefore 87 years of age.

When two years of age she moved with her parents to Preston Co, West Virginia, and when sixteen years of age to Perry Co, Ohio. In the year 1839 the family came to Iowa, being among the very first settlers. They resided on what in known as the old Enoch Winter farm for a number of years.

She was a faithful Christian and was loved by all who knew her. She has been a member of the Methodist church ever since she was sixteen years of age.

The brothers and sister who are living are: Mrs E W Dicken and J A Y Ashby, of this city; E W H Ashby of Pilotsburg; and Mrs P B Twining of Corning.

The funeral will take place from the family residence on south Iowa street tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock. The services will be conducted by Rev Thorn. Interment City cemetery.

Photo Friday :: Applonia Rowley


This series was birthed from the large old photo album I rediscovered in the back of my closet. Many of the photos are from my grandmother's side of the family. There are also unknown photos that came with the album. Story goes my dad, an avid garage saler, picked up a celluloid covered Victorian era photo album on one of his scavenges. It already contained photos of an (as yet) unidentified family. My parents put our own vintage family photos in the album alongside the mystery family's.  As children we marveled at the old fashioned clothing and settings, often wondering who these people were and what their lives were like. Of course, we thought that ALL the people in the photos were our relations! It wasn't until my mom passed the album on to me after my dad died that I learned of the mystery family residing alongside our own!

I plan to share these photos over time, sometimes they will be my family, and identifiable, others will be of the mystery family. Thanks to the world wide web, they may find their way home yet!

Enjoy!

photo found on Ancestry.com
Jesse Ashby  - b. August 31st, 1787/8 in Allegheny County, Maryland, and was the youngest son of a family of nine children. At the age of 21 years he was married to Miss Elizabeth Wilson, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Wilson, and soon after they removed across the line into the celebrated "Cheat River country" in Virginia, where they resided until 1834 when they remove to Perry County, Ohio. Here they were dissatisfied with the country, but remained until the spring of 1839, when in company with his nephew, Jonathan H Wilson, Mr Ashby came to this county (Washington Co, IA) and bought the claim of Thomas Baker, known in later years as the Nelson Stewart farm, adjoining our town on the south.

In the older states as well as in Iowa, he was always known as a honest, industrious, and hardworking farmer, which occupation was continued by him long after the time when most people are compelled, by the infirmities of old age, to withdraw from further active labor. Being an early and respected settler here, the name of "father Ashby" is frequently and honorably mentioned in the history of our county, in connection with many positions of trust and responsibility confided to him by his fellow citizens, all of which he discharged with fidelity and credit; and while never aspiring to be a great man, he was universally regarded as being a good man.

At the age of 22 years he was united with the M. E. Church of which he remained a faithful, trusted and exemplary member during life. Shortly after coming here, he, with his wife, and daughter Polly, became constituent members of the first Methodist church organized in Washington Township, and was appointed its first class leader as well as the first S S superintendent in out county. Now the daughter is the only constituent member of the M. E. church of this city living within its bounds.

For some years before his death Father Ashby owing to the infirmities incident to declining years, was compelled to retire from active life and for the last few months was confined to his room, where he received all the kind and tender care that an affectionate family could bestow.

Notes on Elizabeth Hays Wilson Ashby: For thirty years prior to her death she was a daughter of affliction in consequence of the failure of her health, but in all her afflictions she was patient and resigned to the will of the Lord and was supported and cheered by the hope of a glorious immortality beyond the grave. She was the mother of seven children, six of whom she raised to years of accountability, bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Her house both in Virginia and Iowa was a home for the wayworn itinerant, to whose wants she always delighted to minister as her health would permit. She often talked of dying expressing a readiness and willingness to leave this world of trouble and sorrow and go home to rest in Heaven. She lived religiously and died in peace with God and man, triumphing over the last enemy - which is death.

Tools For The Dig: State Focused Research | Minnesota


State Focused Research | Minnesota


Some of my favorite research sites are slightly off-radar by today's definition.

First I'd like to talk about Genealogy Trails. From their homepage: "Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers. We are all about adding data for you to use in researching your family lines!!!We know that what you're looking for is data -- and we have LOTS of it right here.
Our hosts work continuously to bring you fresh, interesting and NEW data (well.... as new as hundred year old data can be!!!)" Pretty much everything you need to know to begin your Minnesota research is contained within the pages of  Minnesota Genealogy Trails. This is a thorough, well thought out site - and they are always looking for volunteers!

Companion Yahoo! Group: Genealogy Trails/Upper Midwest

Next up, RAOGK. Another volunteer site. A treasure trove of links, well organized and easy to understand. From this site you can request look-ups from a team of Minnesota volunteers. Or add you name to the volunteer list if Minnesota is your home-base.

MNGenWeb is an oldie but a goody! Volunteer based also, this database was founded in 1996! From their home page: "MNGenWeb isn’t an ordinary genealogy website. Ordinary websites are those where text and sometimes pretty pictures are present, but trying to get in touch with a real person to help you with your research… impossible. The strength of MNGenWeb is its many volunteers, some of whom have spent over a decade assisting others with their Minnesota research. Using our county page visit the Minnesota county your ancestors lived in and first try and find any information the county may freely provide on their pages (most have some sort of search built in). If the particular fact isn’t available online, then reach out to the county coordinator (cc) and they will try and assist you as best they can. Most county coordinators have their email address available on their website, though some will use contact forms."

Linkpendium is another all around resource hub. So What is Linkpendium, Anyway? "Linkpendium is a 10,000,000+ resource directory to everything on the Web about families worldwide and genealogically-relevant information about U.S. states and counties. We cover both free and subscription sites, with a strong emphasis upon free resources provided by libraries, other government agencies, genealogical and historical societies, and individuals. We are particularly proud of our unique indexes to online biographies."

A comprehensive list of newspapers can be found at The Ancestor Hunt's Minnesota page.

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Samuel Faulkner {Gen 3}


It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Samuel Faulkner (Robert, Samuel, William) was born about 1811 in Wallkill, Orange Co, New York, to parents Robert Faulkner and Sally Ann (LNU).

Samuel married Elizabeth Ann "Betsey" (LNU) about 1836 in New York.

The couple had at least eight children: (all born Wayne Co, New York)

  • Hannah A Faulkner b. about 1837 d. UNK m. (1)William M Hawkins (2) Jacob Brown
  • Samuel A Faulkner b. about 1839 d. UNK
  • Robert N Faulkner b. about 1842 d. 9 Jul 1863
  • Loomi M Faulkner b. about 1843 d. UNK
  • Eliza A Faulkner b. about 1847 d. 6 Nov 1921 m. (1) William Shepherdson (2) Ezra Nay
  • James William Faulkner b. about 1851 d. 3 Dec 1930 m. Hannah Louisa Smith
  • Sallie Maria Faulkner b. 25 Oct 1851 d. UNK m. William D Watson
  • John Henry Faulkner b. 26 Apr 1856 d. UNK m. Della J Rutherford

In 1863 Samuel enlisted in the Civil War. Samuel Faulkner died October 18th 1864 at Shenandoah, VA. from wounds received at the Battle of Cedar Creek, aka Bell Grove, Frederick County and Shenandoah Co. VA. Elizabeth Ann "Betsey" died April 5th 1882 in Decatur Co, IN where she moved with her son John Henry. Burial location of both Samuel and Betsey unknown.

Additionally - the surname 'Lyons' was given on Eliza's death certificate as her mother's maiden name -as most all the other information on that certificate was incorrect I am very hesitant to say this really is Betsey's maiden name.

This family group is the result of exhaustive research done by a descendant of Robert Faulkner. I have verified most of it, but more work needs to be done. The notes are quite extensive.

Notes From My Grandmother | Rowley Lineage and Genealogy, Part 6


Somehow, much of my grandmother's hand written and (badly) typed notes and research wound up in my possession. Traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles and back to Chicago again. It sat, in the dark of my mother's closet, until my dad passed and my mom decided to begin her great purge. Knowing I had picked up the torch, the next generation to pursue the Greatest Hobby on Earth, the papers came to live with me. Unsure for many years on just what to do with them, I have decided to bring them out and share them with you - transcribed, of course - no one can read my grandmother's handwriting! But in her own words; mistakes, rambling sentences, and all. I think she will be pleased her work and her writing are once again out in the light.


Rowley Family Story con't ....
More on Rev. R C Rowley ~ bio, obituary

REVEREND R C ROWLEY ~ NONAGENARIAN
2/3/1909 - Adams County Free Press

We are this week pleased to present our readers the first of a number of pictures of nonagenarians who reside in Adams County. We purpose presenting one each week for some time, giving a short biographical sketch of each individual. All the world honors and respects the man or woman who has grown old in the service of humanity, and we feel that those of our citizens who have attained the advanced age of ninety or more years are deserving of special notice; that their experiences are interesting to our readers.

Rev Rossiter C Rowley, whose portrait we present herewith, is a resident of Corning, making his home with his daughter, Mrs J L Twining. His father, Joseph Rowley, was born in Ontario Co, New York, December 25, 1788. His mother's maiden name was Annie Beach, born in Ontario Co, New York, March 20, 1790. Rev Mr Rowley's parents were married in Victor, New York in 1815. The father died in Portage Co, Ohio, July 7, 1853, aged 63 years. The mother died November 11, 1867, aged 71 years. It will therefore be seen that Mr Rowley's progenitors were long lived stock.

Rossiter C Rowley was born July 18, 1818, in the town of Victor, Ontario Co, New York, and is therefore in his ninety-first year. In 1828 he moved with his parents to Portage Co, Ohio. At the early age of 17 years he decided upon his life's calling and was licensed to preach in 1838, and ordained  minister of the gospel in 1839. He moved to Putnam County, Indiana in 1838, and in November, 1840, was married to Rhoda A Vredenburg. After ministering for a season in Indiana, Mr Rowley removed to Illinois, where he performed missionary work until 1876, in the spring of which year he came to Iowa and settled in this county. He organized the Presbyterian churches in Brooks and Nodaway and officiated as their pastor for 25 years. In 1892 he was honorably retired from the ministry by the Presbytery of Corning, and since that time has made his home with his daughter in this city.

Rev Mr Rowley is one of the grandest men it has ever been our good fortune to know. He is known and loved by almost every citizen of this community. What a wonderful record to have been a minister of the gospel of good tidings for more than the length of an average life! What an experience it must have been that of the man who had preached salvation to the sinner, shared in the joys of his friends and comforted them in their afflictions for more than threescore and ten years! The record of twenty-five years as pastor of one church is indeed a wonderful one, and very few men can boast of a like privilege. It is indeed a pleasing personality that can retain such a hold on the affections of his people. Mr Rowley has been the good shepherd of parents in this community, their children and their children's children. His life has been a benediction to the people of Adams County, and his place in the affections of our people is firmly established. One of the pleasing recollections of his eventful life is the time when General Lafayette, on the occasion of his last visit to America, called at his father's home and held the then lad Rowley on his knee.

Nature has been good to Father Rowley, and despite his advanced age he retains his mental faculties as clear today as half a century ago. Erect in stature and clear of speech, it is a pleasure to be in his society. Optimistic in his views, the reverend gentleman believes that the world is constantly becoming better, and his unswerving faith in humanity is worthy of emulation. We are glad to have him in our community, and trust the he may be spared in health and happiness for years to come.

Those present were C J Vredenburg of Atlantic, brother of mother Rowley; Mrs John Goodall, of Birmingham, Iowa, sister of father Rowley; M M Rowley, wife and family of New Windsor, Ill; Mr and Mrs J L Twining, of Corning, and Mrs Anna Wilcox and son. The absent ones substantially represented were: a brother, Rev L T Rowley, of Danville, Iowa; Frank Rowley, of New Virginia, Iowa, and Ross and Harry Rowley, of Omaha, grandsons; and Mrs Jesse and Mac Strope, of Des Moines, granddaughter.

~1890 newspaper clipping

~~~~~0~0~0~0~0~~~~~

Rev R C Rowley of Brooks, Ia is the oldest Iowa man in attendance upon the general assembly, being now in his eighty-eighth year. Dr Rowley is not a commissioner, but attends all the sessions and is deeply interested in them. He came from Brooks unaccompanied, and despite his age, gets around with remarkable agility, being hale and hearty and as clear brained as though he was a half century younger. He was born in 1818, ordained in the Methodist church when but twenty years of age and became a Presbyterian in 1862. He organized the Brooks Presbyterian church in 1877, and was pastor of it until four or five years ago.

A BIRTHDAY ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!

There was much rejoicing in the home of Mr and Mrs J L Twining from the fact that Father Rowley and Mother Twining have passed another milestone in their lives. Birthdays, and the same day! Mrs E W Twining was 94 and Rev Rowley was 93 - July 18, 1911. The lady is the mother of Jesse Twining and the gentleman, the father of his wife. The two 'brithday folk' have been members of the Twining household for years and are greatly loved and honored. Beloved by all, family and friends, they are as happy an elderly couple as Corning affords. They have had remarkable health and Dr Rowley makes his daily journey 'uptown' always with a smile and a handshake for everybody. Mrs Twining is active within the household. Their minds are clear; Father has an unusual memory, it is wonderful to hear him recall the past and present events with ease and accuracy. He always has a fund of information on any subject. All Corning and the surrounding countryside are joyfully interested in the anniversaries of these old beloved and honored citizens.

~Corning IA, 18 July 1911 newspaper clipping


~~~~~0~0~0~0~0~~~~~


In response to expression of regard on his ninety-third birthday

"I assure you that such voluntary expressions of esteem are more precious than silver and gold. It makes one feel that he has not lived and labored in vain. It revives in memory the pleasant associations and fellowship of the past. About seventy-five years have been spent in the ministry. They have been years of toil and exposure in the wilderness of Indiana and on the bleak prairies of Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. But they have been years of pleasure and great enjoyment. The Lord, whom I have tried to serve, has been with me, and although I have made many mistakes, thru life and His grace I am what I am.

And now, as I approach the evening of life, the future looks as bright as the promises of Our Heavenly Father. I should like to take each of you by the hand and tell you how much I prize these tokens of friendship. May the God of All Grace be with each one of you and keep you by His power unto everlasting life."

Brick Wall Ancestor | #5 Stephen Colfer


We all have them! Those stubborn ancestors that refuse to come out of hiding. No matter how much coaxing we do! Well, I think it's time to bring them out of the shadows - put their redacted story out there - another piece of the puzzle could be lurking just around the (cyber) corner, in someone's basement, or closet, or sitting in a box on a bookshelf ...... You never, ever know where that loose chink will manifest, the one that allows you to push out one brick, then the next. Food for thought. So without further ado....


Brick Wall Ancestor | #5 Stephen Colfer

Maybe not so much a Brick Wall as a Missing Person, this one will be short and sweet. Stephen seemed to appear briefly as a grown man and then disappear. His name doesn't help - at least it's not John Smith - but an Irishman named Stephen Colfer? A dime a dozen!

What I know:

Stephen Colfer was born about 1840 in Wexford County, Ireland. His parents were John Colfer* and Margaret Walsh. 

Stephen married Catherine (aka Mary, aka Jane) O'Brien on August 10th 1859 in Ontario County, Ontario, Canada. 

See below for expanded view

Groom - Residence - Birth Place - Father - Mother - Bride - Bride Residence

Birth Place - Father - Mother - Residence - Marriage Date
The couple had four children born in Canada, then about 1868 the family immigrated to Evanston, IL where their last two children were born.

Stephen shows up on only ONE census - 1870. Evanston City Directories did not begin until 1880 - so no help there!

In 1876 Stephen's wife left him and the children and moved to Chicago. They never divorced. Catherine (aka Mary, aka Jane) married again, a man named William Walking. When Catherine returned to Evanston in 1878 to try to get her children, Stephen discovered what had happened and filed charges against his estranged wife.

Story About Stephen Colfer and Wife

I have not discovered the outcome of the Criminal Court case yet. That might hold some clues.

Stephen was in Evanston as late as 1878 when he filed the warrants, but he is not on the 1880 census.

Most of the children were on the 1880 census, the girls working as domestic servants, the boys were boarders working labor jobs. So, not living with either their father or their mother. They were mostly all under the age of 15.  

Catherine (aka Mary, aka Jane) went on to have three more children with her 'husband' William Walking. I have not found a divorce record for her and Stephen.

Stephen Colfer, it seems, disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.

So many questions! Did he go back to Canada? Ireland? Get remarried and have a second family? Die? When did he even immigrate to Canada? As a child? Adult? With family? Alone?

There is a Stephen Colfer who is registered to vote in Chicago in 1890. The record states that this Stephen had only been in Illinois 10 years, 'our' Stephen would have been in Illinois 20 years by this time. Still, something to look into further, perhaps.  


Genealogy:

Stephen Colfer b. abt 1840 Wexford County, Ireland d. UNK
                 m. 10 Aug 1859 Catherine (aka Mary, aka Jane) O'Brien Ontario, Canada

children:
  • Genevieve "Jennie" Colfer b. 9 Nov 1862 Canada d. 21 Jul 1948 Chicago IL m. James Bixler
  • John Colfer b. abt 1863 Canada d. aft 1910
  • Ellen "Nellie" Colfer b. Jan 1865 Canada d. 15 Sep 1940 Chicago IL m. John McCabe
  • Thomas Colfer b. Jan 1868 Canada d. 24 Oct 1943 Chicago IL m. Mary Ann Nally
  • James Colfer b. 1869 Evanston IL d. 24 Mar 1934 Chicago IL
  • Mary Colfer b. abt 1872 Evanston IL d. aft 1930 m. William Raftree 


*John Colfer, Stephen's father, is found on several Irish records available on Ancestry and Findmypast. I believe I found him on Griffith's Valuation and in some Parish records for Wexford County. Irish research is new to me, I may learn more as I dig deeper.
