Funeral Cards – Holt County, Missouri area

I have funeral cards for 366 people who lived/died in or around Holt County, Missouri. They were collected by Todd’s grandparents Ralph Gray & Edna Hickman Gray of Craig. I would like to get these into the hands of a relative interested in genealogy, and perhaps that is YOU. Email me at sgray1us@gmail.com and send me the name on the card(s) you want and your address and I will get it(them) sent. I will keep a photo of each one I send out, in case I have additional inquiries, though I do have two copies of many of these.

Funeral Cards – Union County, Iowa area

I have funeral cards for 211 people who lived/died in or around Union County, Iowa. They were collected by Todd’s grandmother Inez Perkins Reece (1921-2005) of Creston. I would like to get these into the hands of a relative interested in genealogy, and perhaps that is YOU. Email me at sgray1us@gmail.com and send me the name on the card(s) you want and your address and I will get it(them) sent. I will keep a photo of each one I send out, in case I have additional inquiries, though I do have two copies of many of these.

The children of Eli Wardwell Robinson & Emily Hill:

Martha Antoinette Robinson – Martha was born July 13, 1840 in Painesville, Lake County, Ohio. She married Emery Samuel Warren on November 27, 1862 in Polk County, Iowa. They farmed in Iowa and had 9 children. According to her memorial on Find A Grave, she was a suffragette and close friend of Susan B. Anthony, and supported prohibition through her work with the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. She was also the author of the book Shirt Tail Inn about her husband’s life. She died December 23, 1934 in Houston, Harris County, Texas. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.

Homer Stratton Robinson – Homer was born January 27, 1843 in Ohio. He married Luella Barnes, a dressmaker, on October 2, 1874 in Dallas County, Iowa. They had no children and lived in Iowa. He died April 25, 1919. His Find A Grave memorial is here.

Emma Matilda Robinson – My 3x great grandmother Emma was born August 28, 1847 in Ohio. She married Andrew M. Watrous in about 1864 in Iowa. They had 5 children. Emma died February 19, 1916, probably in Nebraska. Her Find A Grave memorial is here. Read more about her here.

Andrew Mayfield Watrous (1805-1871) & Harriet Vandercook (1807->1850)

Andrew Mayfield Watrous is my 4x great grandparents, the father of my 3x great grandfather Andrew M. Watrous.

For now I am considering the mother of Andrew M. Watrous to be Harriet Vandercook. She is listed as the mother of Andrew Mayfield Watrous’ daughter Julia on a marriage record. On 1850 US Census, his wife was listed as Harriet. I think that Harriet died shortly after the Census, and he married a woman named Matilda. Matilda appears with him in 1860 and 1870, and in 1880 as his widow. I can’t find any marriage records for Andrew. Most online family trees list Andrew’s first wife as Hannah Vanderbrook, and it’s possible that Harriet Vandercook is actually Hannah Vanderbrook. But I haven’t found a record linking him to a wife named Hannah. Also, a check of the 1810 US Census in New York found 4 matches to names that could become Vandercook (VanderCook, Vanderkirk, Van Der Cock) but got no hits for Vanderbrook. It is possible that Andrew had a wife prior to Harriet/Hannah, because the one child linked to Harriet has 3 older siblings who could have a different mother. This is a work in progress …  and if you have information to share with me I would love to hear from you.

Andrew Mayfield Watrous 1805 in New York. He was a son of Phineas Watrous and Hannah Chadwick.

Harriet Vandercook was born about 1811 in New York. Her parents are unknown.

On the 1830 US Census, Andrew was head of a household of 6 in Lyons, Wayne County, New York: 1 male aged 20-29 (Andrew was 25); 2 females under age 5 (unknown, neither lives to 1840); 1 female aged 5-9 (unknown, doesn’t live to 1840, and probably not their child due to mother’s age); 1 female aged 10-14 (unknown, not their child due to ages of parents); 1 female aged 20-29 (Harriet was 19).

In 1833, Andrew was counted on the Michigan State Census.

On October 15, 1835 Andrew purchased 40 acres in Detroit. On May 1, 1837 Andrew Michigan of Oakland County, Michigan purchased 40 acres of land in Detroit, Michigan. On September 4, 1838 he purchased 80 acres in Detroit.

On the 1840 US Census, Andrew was head of a household of 6 in Independence, Oakland County, Michigan: 1 male aged 5-9 (Phineas); 1 male aged 10-14 (unknown, wasn’t counted in 1830); 1 male aged 30-39 (Andrew was 35); 1 female under age 5 (unknown, doesn’t live to 1850); 1 female aged 5-9 (Hannah); 1 female aged 30-39 (Harriet was 29).

On the 1850 US Census, the family was in Orange, Delaware County, Ohio. Andrew was 46 and working as a shoemaker. Harriet was 39. They had 6 children: Hannah, age 15; Phineas, age 13; Andrew, age 9; Julia, age 6; Sarah, age 2; Martha, an infant.

On May 1, 1855 Andrew purchased 42 acres in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa.

Sometime in here Harriet died, and Andrew married Matilda, last name unknown.

On the 1856 Iowa State Census, the family was in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa. Andrew was 51 and a physician, Matilda was 50, Phineas was 19, Andrew was 15, Julia was 11, Jane was 9, and Martha was 6.

On the 1860 US Census, the family was in Walnut, Dallas County, Iowa. Andrew was 55 and working as a physician. Matilda was 54. The children, all from Andrew’s first marriage: Julia, age 15; Andrew, age 20; Sarah, age 13; Martha, age 10. Julia, Sarah and Martha were attending school, and Andrew was a farmer.

In 1864, Andrew paid $5.52 on a Hotel in Boone and $2 for a horse car, and later that year paid another $4.17 tax on the hotel (valued at $10.)

On the 1870 US Census, Andrew and Matilda lived in Boone, Dallas County, Iowa. Andrew was 65 and farming. Matilda was 64. That is the last record I have for them.

The children of Andrew Mayfield Watrous & Harriet Vandercook:

Many online family trees list other children, and Census records show they may have  children that aren’t listed here. If you have information that links other children to this couple, please let me know!

Hannah Watrous – Hannah was born 1835 in Michigan. She married Roswell Winn by 1856 (his first wife died in 1851 and Hannah appears on the Iowa State Census as his wife in 1856.) They had a daughter in 1869, and Roswell died in 1870. Hannah married Samuel S. Christian on September 6, 1871 in Muscatine County, Iowa. They had a daughter in 1875. Hannah died in August of 1886.
