PYLE, TOWELL posted by Jennifer Vincent on Tuesday, June 24, 1997

Subject: Isaac Whitehead TOWELL, born April 21, 1827, in White County, IL, (died January 19, 1910, in Ponder, Ripley County, MO.) was my great-great grandfather. His wife, Virginia E. PYLE was born December 1, 1829, (her place of birth is unknown) and died July 26, 1893, in Ripley County, MO. They had 9 children. In about 1885, he and his wife moved with 5 of his 9 children (Cora Virginia TOWELL, Daniel Tucker TOWELL, Henry Ambrose TOWELL, Zora Helen TOWELL, and another female TOWELL, whose name I don't know) to Ripley County, MO. I have reached a dead-end in my family research at Isaac, and would greatly appreciate any help. Most importantly, I am looking for a marriage date and location for Isaac and his wife, as well as any information on Isaac's or Virginia's parents - or even further back. I would also like any information on their 4 children who stayed in IL. But anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

GOWDY, SYNDER, VAUGHT posted by Nancy Gowdy Gragg on Wednesday, July 2, 1997

Claude Franklin GOWDY was born Oct 23, 1880. Since his family, Leander Franklin GOWDY and Emily A. VAUGHT lived and died in Enfild, IL, I assume that Claude Franklin GOWDY was born there also, but I haven't found out for sure. I would also like to know when and where he got married. He married Rene' Ray SYNDER and their first child, James Lee GOWDY, was born in 1905 in Galatia Illinois, so I assume they were married in Enfield or close to it. Any help would be appreciated.

NEWCOMB posted by Larry Newcomb on Friday, July 4, 1997

I have a great deal of information on the NEWCOMB family, who lived in White County in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I am looking for information on these people, though. Could you please put my name on your list of people doing research? my email addresses are: at work: at home:


I am researching GAINES, HOLDERBY, MALCOM, WHITE, HARVEY, FELIX, LOUIS Great Grandmother Mary A. WHITE (MALCOLM/ WALTERS/HESTER) was born 7-10-1854, She was called Grandma Hester toward the end of her life. Mary was 1/2 Italian. Her motherİs last name was LOUIS her fatherİs name of course was WHITE. Mary was probably married in 1871 to John MALCOM because her daughter Etna MALCOM was born in Trumball,Ill. 1-19-1872. ( Etna married Hilliard GAINES and had Margie and Paul Gaines, who both married Smiths, and other children, see family tree) Mary had two sons by John MALCOM; Robert Virgil Malcolm 1-3-1874/4-5-1937, and J.C. Malcolm 3-6-1875. John Malcolm(might have served in the Civil War) must have died sometime between 1875 and 1881 because the next date I have is the birth of Maryİs fourth child, Charles H. Walters, born 1882. Hilliard GAINES b. 5-2-1869, Carmi, IL, was the son of John GAINES and Tabitha HOLDERBY. John GAINES b. TN may have served in the Civil War, Union. Tabitha HOLDERBY was the daughter of Nathaniel HOLDERBY b. 1811 and Nancy Jane HARVEY b.1813. Nancy Jane HARVEY was the daughter of Betsy FELIX b. VA 1774 and Mr HARVEY. most of this info is from family Bibles.I have more about the Nathaniel Holderby and Nancy Jane Harvey children and spouses. Brenda.

DIETZ, POSTEDDAR, WALTON posted by Judy Douglas on Saturday, July 5, 1997

I am looking for information on DIETZ. My father was Cletus DIETZ, a photographer in Carmi for many years. His mothe was Catherine WALTON and father either Frank or John Dietz (I'm not really sure--it's one way in one record and another way in another one).

Appreciate any help!

MILLER, VEATCH posted by Melissa Phillips on Sunday, July 6, 1997

I am researching the VEATCH family. James VEATCH came from Scotland in 1651 and settled in Maryland. From there the family migrated to the Carolina's, Kentucky, Tennesee, and into Illinios. My great-great grandfather, John M. VEATCH, was born in White Co. in 1819, along with 15 other brother's and sister's. He married Sarah M. Rice on November 12, 1840 in White Co. I am currently in correspondence with the Carmi County Clerks office for confirmation about John's parent's. I have information they were Isaac VEATCH and Mary Ellen (Polly) MILLER, but I need confirmation to draw the line back further. If I am correct, I have a family tree that goes back to 1435. If any one has any information on them I would be grateful, and willing to share what I have. I have received alot of informatiion from the Lds Family History Library, but not confirmed. I would welcome any query's. Thank You.
