The children born in Hennepin were John, May l86l, Julia Elizabeth, l865 ca, David Dec l868 and Thomas l870. In l87l they moved to Iowa. I would appreciate info on any of the above and also whatever can be found on the Dalton Family. All I can tell you about them is that they had a Nell and Kate. Thank you.

Seeking information on Cyrus S. STEVENS, my gggrandfather. The last place Cyrus was known to be was in Henepin [sic] IL when he wrote a letter to his parents Moses and Elizabeth Mary STEVENS back in Branch County MI. Cyrus stated that he had been shipwrecked while travelling down the Illinois River on his boat. He had accidentally run into his brother-in-law James ABBOTT while on the banks of the river. He mentions being with his family. Cyrus' wife was Gertrude KOON [variant spellings]; their children were George [b 1841], Charles [b 1844], Elizabeth Ann [b 1846], John Beebe [b 1852], Susan Irene [b 1854], Samuel [b 1857], Henry William [b 1858] and Isabelle [Bell] [born 1862/63 --this date is iffy]. Gertrude married again in 1869 in Sangamon County, IL to Thomas Auston so, obviously, Cyrus was out of the picture. Any info is appreciated; I will be glad to share what I have. BTW--there is another Cyrus S. Stevens in Macon County, IL but he is not my Cyrus. Thanks, judy arnn-knight PS--Dave--my query was one of the missing ones--I had posted it mid-summer of 1999; cannot find it now jak

Dave, The following paragraphs is background for my queries (last paragraph). I am the great grandson of Augustin Staiert. I grew up on the farm at Carroll Iowa that Augustin Staiert moved to from Senachwine Township? in 1877 with his wife Amelia (Dentlinger) Staiert and his two oldest children. Their names were Theodore (born Oct 12 1874) and Mary (born Mar 3, 1876). He had purchased the land in Iowa in November (recorded on Nov 24) of 1873 after most likely making the initial down payment in 1871. He would have traveled by rail on both trips to Carroll County Iowa and bought the land from the railroad (which eventually became the Chicago Northwestern). He is listed in the 1870 US census as a hired hand living and working with Peter Bachman who lived in Senachwine Township. Augustin married Amelia at Sacred Heart Church in Hennepin on December 4, 1873. I have copies of the marriage license and parish records. I also have copies of his citizenship papers. His first papers are dated Oct 26, 1870. His final papers are dated 28 October 1872 and is witnessed by Peter Bachman and Peter Feltes. I also have a copy of a Military Census dated July 20, 1863 listing Augustin Staiert and Peter Bachman.
Prior to this, Augustin is believed to have traveled to the US at least two times. Once in 1856 and the second time in 1866. Augustin was a native of the Black Forest region and participated in the selling of the Black Forest clocks and also a regional art form called Hinterglassbilder in which the picture is painted on the reverse side of a piece of plate glass. Popular images included George Washington and other patriotic themes. Augustin worked and traveled with another man named Josef Benitz. Josef Benitz is known to have sold clocks and paintings in Chicago, Peoria and Freeburg Illinois. In 1866 Josef Benitz was in Chicago and lost contact with Augustin when he went west. Additional background: A Mathais Gross is also listed as a hired hand living with Peter Bachman on the 1870 US Census. He married Genevieve Dentlinger, sister of Amelia in 1874 (one source says at Henry Illinois and another at Hennepin Illinois). They moved to Carroll County Iowa in 1882. The Dentlinger family emigrated to America in 1872. They were friends/relatives of John Noder who lived in the Hennepin area. I don't have any info of John Noder.
My queries are centered around trying fill in the blanks on Augustin's life after arriving in Senachwine township. I would like to locate the Peter Bachman farmstead and land. Is the farmstead still in existence? Who lives there now? Peter Bachman is the son of Henry Bachman. He also had land. Where was it located? Are there plat maps available showing the Bachman farms? I have not been able to locate any birth records for Theodore and Mary. Do they exist? Where did Augustin and Amelia live after they married? Perhaps it was nearby closer to Henry Illinois. Any assistance in answering these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dick Staiert Great Grandson of Augustin Staiert.

I am researching the origin of my grandparents Martin Bryan and Mary Rossen who were married in Putnam County December 17, 1896. They were Danish immigrants. I know that my grandfather's name had been anglicized, I believe the original in Danish was Martinus Brynde. Martin was born April 14, 1873 in Denmark and died in Denver, Colorado in 1936. Mary was born January 20, 1873, in a Danish-ethnic part of Germany and died in October, 1933 in either Denver, Colorado or Capron, Illinois. They had six children, two died in infancy. The remaining four (now deceased) were:
- Minnie Bryan (b. Mar 21, 1897, married Anker Rasmussen)
- Eleanor Bryan (b. Jan 9, 1904, married Gerald Land)
- Harold Bryan (b. Sep 10, 1910)
- Margaret Bryan (b. Oct 12, 1916, married Max McCartney)
I would appreciate any information or clues that would assist me in identifying their parentage and birthplaces. Mary Aylesworth [email protected]

Where are the Putnam County marriages indexed? They aren't listed on the statewide marriage index... Also, I heard that Putnam County newspapers are in private hands - is this true? Can't the state force the owners to allow them to make copies so the general public can have access to them? Are there any cemetery indexes available for Putnam County? Any help appreciated! Lois

Saw your name on the Putnam Co IL webpage. I would like some information on some of the northern Italian coalminers who lived in Putnam starting in the late 1880 and early 1900s. My surnames of interest are BERTA, BUFFO, FENOGLIO, GADDO, PERONA, REANO and VERETTO. I have some information on them. Perhaps all did not live in Putnam County. I visited the library in Hennegin the first part of October and wrote down some names of some of the surnames above in a list of persons buried in Putnam Co IL but I only had a couple of hours to do so as I was traveling cross country for a funeral or a relative. What would you charge for 4 hours of work for getting cemetery information and obituary and other available information in Putnam County on the surnames above? I would send you printouts of what I have so far. Jay Verett [email protected]
