NIEHAUS, PALCHO posted by Cynthia Taylor on Saturday, October 9, 1999

My gggrandfather was John F. NIEHAUS b.6/5/1819 in Hanover Germany, migrated to US about 1846. He applied for US citizenship in Jo Daviess Co. IL 1846. On 5/6/1856 he married Caroline D. PALCHO b. 8/27/1829 in Mecklenburg Germany. Their marriage certificate indicates that she had been living in Galena IL at the time of their marriage. I don't know when she migrated to US. They moved to Plattville WI where he is listed as a tailor, and then to Nebraska where he was a farmer. They had 4 sons: William, Lewis, George, and ?. I can't find any previous info on either of them.

BROWNELL, DUNCAN, SWEDENBORG posted by Bill Mac Kay on Saturday, October 23, 1999

Seek to know origins and eventualities of one George Washington BROWNELL of Galena, Jo Daviess Co., IL. In 1847, he married Mrs. Johanna (or Hannah) DUNCAN of Galena. At the time, he was a resident of the Falls of St. Croix. He may be a relative of Marcia BROWNELL, with whom he shares a page in the 1860 Galena, third ward, census. He is probably the father of the Marcia BROWNELL who is honored as a grammar school student in an April 1864 Galena newspaper. G.W. BROWNELL was a religious follower of Emanuel SWEDENBORG, i.e., a member of the Church of the New Jerusalem. Would be pleased to correspond & share. Thank you, Bill Mac Kay in New York City. .

Hi Nichole, Sorry to disappoint you, but the Ann MCPHILLIPS rings no bells for me. Did she settle in Jo Daviess county? I would be anxious to learn, because I havn't traced any one to Ireland yet. Good luck with your searches.
