For many years I have been searching for the answer to who my husband's ggg grandfather was.His surname was Marquis & he married Elizabeth Thompson. He had a son named Jesse Marquis born 20 May 1820 in Pa. Family history states that he died just before Jesse's birth. I don't know where he died or why. Anyone who could help me I would be very grateful. I have Marquis family history from Jesse to current.

The BABY in the Picture. HOFFMAN/ FABER

The picture shows a baby in Mr. Faber's lap.  Is it the  first, second or third child.  I would think some of those in IOWA would know but so far no concrete answers.  

A clue would be the picture was taken in Illinois. 

So when did they live in Illinois?  Look for old letters, reports in newspapers and census information may give us a clue. 

I am sure that Lucy Faber's kin would surely know but I am not hearing that.  Isn't genealogy and family…

Who the Feck do you think you are?

"Who the Feck do you think you are?" is the title of a blog I have been thinking of running on researching our family history for a few months now, and today is the day I get it started!

The Foundation Legend

Three brothers came from Kildare - varis names given, and built three houses beside each other... two died childless, and the third inherited the two plots, giving a decent plot of land before the great famine, and setting the family up to be just that…

Picture may be of my great-grandmother

The woman in the middle of this picture may be Ester Stella Liska great-grandma.  On the back, very faintly, it says Mrs. Peto.  I think she is surrounded by coal miners and I wonder if one of them near her might be her son John Peto who was killed in a mining accident in 1927. ???…
