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 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…Continue

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…

The woman in the middle of this picture may be Ester Stella Liska Peto....my great-grandma. On the back, very faintly, it says Mrs. Peto.
