I am researching my Ggrandmother's family:
Julia Candace SNELL (m John LEACH;
twin daughters). She m(2) my Ggrandfather
Winfield Scott COLE, a Baptist Minister. Her
mother was Sarah St. Clair (b. CT) and I
believe Sarah's father was Matthew St. Clair
(the only St. Clair in the CT census). I don't
know Sarah's mother's name. I have no
knowledge of the twin daughters except that I
believe they lived in MI because Julia was on
a visit to them when she dies and was buried
there. Winfield is buried in Santa Cruz CA
beside his daughter, Elizabeth Nerginia (Cole)
Inman. Any information would be greatly
Looking for information on William HILL (d

Evens). Need his birthdate and parents.
I am searching for any information on the
second marriage of James HART (bca
1784/DE). His first wife, Mary, was dead by
1860. My GGGgrandmother, Susannah Moore
Lowry, appears to have remarried after the
death of her husband. I am speculating as to
the first name of Susannah Moore Lowry's 2nd
husband. A search of possible candidates in
both Adams Co and Highland Co in 1860
census (after which Susannah's surname
changes from Lowry to Hart) leads to only one
possible man of a correct age: James Hart.
The will of James Hart, listing Susannah as
widow in 1863, makes me think there is strong
evidence that this indeed was Susannah's
second husband. Can anyone help me with
information on this marriage, which took place
between 15-16 Jun 1860 and James Hart's
death, 13 Jan 1863.
