Rootbound in the Hills #183:
26 Mar 1991

by Rocky Macy

Catherine KLEIN is studying American Civilization at La Sorbonne University in Paris, France, where she is writing a thesis on the emigration of Alsaticians to the United States. Catherine is seeking information about cousins, Mathis and Catherin KLEIN-HAEBERLIN, who emigrated from Fortschwir near Colmar to Chicago in 1897 with their eight children. They appear on the 1900 census of Chicago, but were not there in 1910. Where the family moved is unknown. If anyone has information to share, please write to Catherine KLEIN at 971 Rampe d'Ardon, 02000 Laon, France.

And while we're in an international mode...

Joyce BERRY (2210 Robb Avenue, Comox, British Columbia, V9N4T1, Canada) is interested in corresponding with anyone who has information on George and Lydia (POOL) COOP who were in Rogers, Benton County, AR, on 18 Sep 1924 at which time they had just sold their farm and were preparing to move back to Dellvale, Norton County, KS. Joyce is also tracking L.E. and Laney Mary (POOL) BURROUGHS who were married on 2 Dec 1880 in Norton County, KS. At the time of their marriage, Laney was 21-years-old and L.E. was thirty-three. What became of this couple?

Rose STAUBER (Rt. 3, Box 1084, Grove, OK 74344) desires to learn more about Stephen Grant ROSE and his wife, Ida Mae ANDERSON, who lived in southern Newton County, MO, in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The couple had seven children, five girls and two boys. The girls married Edward CRAVENS, Orville HINMAN, Jack WHISTLER, Edward WHISTLER, and Victor COX. The boys married Hazel SMITH and Lola Lorene DAWSON. Rose would like to obtain information on this family, and she can provide a history of the ROSE family to other researchers. Who has some facts to share with one of our favorite correspondents?

Robert V. DRENNAN (9323 San Fernando Way, Dallas, TX 75218) is looking for material on James WILSON (born circa 1807, NC) and his wife, Madaline Elizabeth. They were in Bradley County, TN, in 1850, and in Walker County, GA, in 1860 and 1870. The couple had moved to War Eagle Township, Madison County, AR, after 1870.

The children of James and Madaline WILSON (above) were Martha Catherine (married Jesse O. DRENNAN), Mary A., John L., William H., James, Margaret, and Joseph (married Frances DRENNAN). Madaline died 10 April 1879. James, Madalien, and children James, John, Joseph, William, and Margaret are all buried in McConnell Cemetery south of Huntsville, AR.

Joseph and Frances (DRENNAN) WILSON (above) had the following children: Sarah E., Emma F., James W., and John. They were all living in Madison County AR, in 1910. Our correspondent would especially like to hear from descendants of these individuals.

Donna POTTER PHILLIPS (2204 W. Houston, Spokane, WA 99208-4440) reports that all of her Heritage Hunting columns from the Spokane newspaper have been published in a 125-page booklet. The columns cover the years 1986-1990. Her collection may be ordered for the postage-paid price of just $12.50.

The Missouri State Genealogical Association (P.O. Box 833, Columbia, MO 65205-0833) has announced that they have a limited supply of copies of Taney County, Missouri, Tombstone Inscriptions (volumes one and two combined). This work was compiled by Betty HARVEY WILLIAMS and originally printed in 1965. The reprint edition is now available for $13.00, postage included.

Thank you, Jackie COPELAND of Noel, for the nice note about your recent "find" in Rootbound. It is the successes of our readers that keep this column going!
