AUGUST, LOESCH, NATTERMAN, RUDOLPH posted by Patrick Carney on Sunday, April 2, 2000

Seeking background information on my g-grandmother, Maria LOESCH who lived in Galena from 1854 to 1881. Most of this time she lived with her older sister, Lena (Johanna) LOESCH NATTERMAN. The sisters immigrated from Germany on board the ship, John Hermann in November 1854. Both of their parents, Carl-Heinrich & Henriette LOESCH died enroute. Ca. 1860 Lena married AUGUST Natterman, who had arrived onboard the same ship. Maria was listed with the couple in both the 1860 & 1870 U.S. censuses. She married my g-grandfather, William RUDOLPH of Dubuque, in 1881 in Galena..

CAVANEY, CAVENY, KAVANEY, KAVANY, KAVENEY, KAVENY, KEAVENY posted by Maureen Kavaney Tillman on Sunday, April 9, 2000

I need someone to do a lookup for the 1860 census for Jo Daviess Co. I need the data for Peter CAVANEY which I found indexed on the census roll #189. I have had much trouble with this surname for my gggrandfather. He was recorded in NJ under Peter KEAVENY in 1852, and from 1863-1888 in Iowa the name was listed as CAVENY, KAVENY, KAVANY, KAVENEY, and KAVANEY - which is how the name remained since about 1870. I know they were in Illinois 1852-1862, I beleive for a time in Galena area. The name Peter CAVANEY really has given me hope that I finally found him. So is there someone who can do the lookup for me? Thank you very much. Maureen Kavaney Tillman.

HUBACHER, KIRK posted by Rachel M Downing on Tuesday, April 18, 2000

I have received a copy of the Cook County Illinois Coroners inquest report regarding the death of James W. KIRK who was born and raised in Jo Davies County Illinois, Galena. If interested, see the other queries on this site about James, including a copy of the newspaper articles about the accident. The inquest was attended by Nicholas HUBACHER Jr who was the brother in-law of James W. KIRK. Nicholas is listed as an inquest witness along with several co-workers, possibly the driver or engineer of the train and a police officer. The occupation of Nicholas HUBACHER Jr is listed as Saloon Keeper. The saloon would have been located in Galena as that is where he lived. I know there is a bar or tavern located at the base of a hill where the HUBACHER homes were located, this bar belonged to a cousin of my mother and I wonder if it might be the same establishment as it is within a few hundred feet of the old houses, perhaps it was kept in the family??? I visited the location a! s a child with my mother and grandmother. The inquest record for James also lists the names of six jurors, and the cause of death, shock and injuries from having been struck by engine #655 which was pulling passenger train # 527 northbound near Ingraham Street in Chicago. For more details read the other KIRK queries. I found it interesting to have the exact train identified. Inquest date was February 13th, 1904, one day after the death. Anyone interested or having information about KIRKS or HUBACHERS may email [email protected], thanks, Rachel Downing.

My great great grandfather, James FITZSIMONS, moved his family from County Cavan, Ireland to JoDaviess County in 1847. He moved from there to Fayette County, Iowa. The name "Vinegar Hill" is famous in Irish history as the site of a bloody battle in the 1798 Rising. I wonder what is the origin of the JoDaviess County name?

CULLEN, DOYLE, HEITKAMP, HILVERS, POWERS posted by Rachel M Downing on Friday, April 28, 2000

I do not have alot on the Cullens of Dillons yet. These families are my mothers cousins etc... William HEITKAMP married Irene CULLEN on April 27 1937. Irene Cullens parents were Patrick CULLEN and Jane DOYLE. William HEITKAMPs parents were Clemens HEITKAMP and Julia POWERS. Marriage witnesses were Mr and Mrs Henry HILVERS. William would have been a my grandmothers first cousin as Clemens was the brother of her father Bernard J Heitkamp. Here are some notes I made on Dillons burried in that area, but I do not know how they tie in with my family: St Michaels Catholic cemetery East Galena Patrick Dillon died Oct. 03, 1903 b Co. Kims? Ireland Margaret Dillon b Oct. 10, 1836 d April 11, 1895 Margaret Dillon d Oct. 30, 1884 age 80 b Co. Kims? Ireland East Dubuque cemetery Ellen M Dillon b April 29, 1897 d Sep 18, 1961 "Byrnie" is not one of my family names, although Byrne (primarily), Byrnes, and just a couple of Burns. See my other queries on this site and also Grant County Wis genweb and Lafayette County Wis. genweb posts. These are the main areas of settlement for my mothers family including Jo Davies County Illinois. I will post another follow up if I find more information specific to these surnames/connected to my family. Rachel.

GRANT, HEER posted by Jennifer Heer on Sunday, April 30, 2000

I have information about a civil war sword that was on loan to a Galena Museum from a HEER family relative living in Galena. The sword was never returned to the HEER family, either because that individual died, or never asked that it be returned. The sword was given as a gift by possibly U.S. GRANT to David H. HEER after the Civil War. If anyone has any information about this sword, please contact me. Thank you for any help
