I'm looking for info on David Troyer's mother, Hannah Rockefeller Troyer. She married Waldron Drew in Saline Co., NE in 1883. Do you have any info on her death/burial? Hannah was the 3rd wife of Waldron Drew. He died in Saline Co., NE in Aug 1893 and is buried in Dorchester Cemetery, Saline Co., NE. Hannah is not buried with him. Waldron is in the same lot with his daughter, Rachel Drew Coates Brown and her first husband (F. Jefferson Coates) and child. Waldron was born in Warren Co., OH 1818 married his 1st wife, Sarah Stettler in Clinton Co., IN in 1841 and then moved to Wisconsin. Sarah died in 1855 in Wisconsin and Waldron married Mazey Ann Blakely the same year. She was a widow. She and Waldron had several children together. I don't have her death date either. Anyway, Waldron was in Saline Co. with his daughter Rachel (Sarah Stettler is her mother) by 1880 or so. Am hoping you have more info on Hannah and Waldron.

 Wilber Nebraska is the county seat of Saline County. They would have wills or estate papers at the Probate Court. Birth records were not kept until 1910 and deaths sporadically in 1904. Obituaries were in the Dorchester Star newspaper, and copies can be obtained from the Nebraska State Historical Socieity at 15th & R in Lincoln Nebraska. I believe the cost is $5.00 for the Historical Society and Wilbur charges 50 cents for marriages and $5.00 for wills and estates. These places are fantastic and of great help. donna

Greetings from Virginia! I've just subscribed to the list and am looking for information on a relative who has been very elusive. I would appreciate any help on this family or advise on sources. Are there death certificates or probate records available for 1893 in Saline Co.? Are there any newspaper obituaries available for this time period?

Looking for family of Waldren Drew and his daughter Rachael Coates Brown. Waldron Drew, according to Dorchester Cemetery records online, was born 25 Jan 1819 and died 14 August 1893. He was born in Miami Co., Ohio, eldest child of Abraham W. Drew and Mary Voorhis. His father, Abraham Drew died in 1822 in Miami Co., OH and the family moved to Warren Co., Ohio.. He had two sisters, Margaret Drew (wife of John Clendenin) and Martha Drew (wife of Robert Batcheler).

From the 1850 Clinton Co., IN census, I found that Rachael was born about 1841. By 1860 the family was in Wisconsin and lastly, I found them in Saline Co., NE. I don't know the name of Rachael's husband. Other children of Waldron Drew are Jacob, Mary, Sarah, John and William Henry. Waldron Drew married at least 2 times. First to Sarah Statler 11 May 1840 in Clinton Co., IN and second to Mazy Ann Blake from Dorchester, Saline Co., NE. Sarah Statler Drew died in Wisconsin on 1 May 1855.

Would love to find any descendents.
Best regards to all,

Obituary: WAS NEARLY EIGHTY YEARS OLD "James G. Motter, seventy-nine years, eight months old, passed away at his home on north Kansas Avenue last Friday evening. Mr. Motter was one of Alfalfa county's oldest citizens and during his life in this community he was well known as one of the leading christian workers. He leaves to mourn his death his wife, six daughters and three sons. 
Coming to the Cherokee Strip in the spring of 1894, Mr. Motter and his family settled on a claim in the north-east portion of the county where he made his home until a few years ago when he moved to Cherokee. During the long hard years of this country's first settlement, Mr. Motter worked on his farm with tireless energy, and while the great majority of his time was taken up with the work of providing for his family, he always found time for work along religious lines.
At the early age of seven years, while living in Indiana, Mr. Motter was converted and from that early age until the time of his death he, according to those who know him, as near as possible lived a christian life. He was a great believer in teaching and living the true christian life and his home became noted for the great family Bible that was ever lying open, ready for all who cared to read.
Besides his wife and a host of friends. Mr. Motter leaves to mourn his death, six daughters and three sons. They are Mrs. George Hockman of this city, Mrs. Gertrude Motter Hadley, who was at one time county superintendent of Alfalfa county schools and who is now engaged as a missionary in Alaska, Mrs. May E. Wilson of Los Angeles, Calif., George Motter of Burlington, Mrs. Cordelia Scriven of Lamar, Colorado, Mrs. Ethel Neel, Hannibal, Mo., and Mrs. Z. George of Perryton, Texas.
At the out-break of the Civil War, Mr. Motter enlisted in the Union Army and for three years fought in many engagements of that great war. After his discharge in 1863, he re-enlisted and served until the finish of the war. 
The funeral was held from the Christian church last Sunday afternoon with Rev. A. L. Weston and Rev. George Cobb officiating. Interment was made in the M. W. A. Cemetery.
CARD OF THANKS: We wish to take this means of thanking our many friends for the kind words and tender sympathies and the many beautiful flowers extended us during the illness and death of our husband and father. Mrs. James Motter and family.

 

Hello,

I too am looking for information on the Manary family in the Portland area. My father's mother was Letitia Drew, and her mother's maiden name was Letitia Caroline(a?) Manary. She married Hubert Lee Drew. Have any of these names come up for you in your research? My father says he knows that many of his Manary relatives are buried in a cemetery next to a church in Beaverton, Oregon. I live in Washington, and so does he. So we plan to visit the cemetery in the next few weeks to collect names and dates. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about other Manary's that would be helpful, because I am really starting from square one here...I only have Letitia's name...and whatever I discover at the cemetery. Still, I am wondering if we might be connected in some way. Good luck with your search!

 

Hi Barbara:

I'm part of the Manary family and know some about your family, I think. I'm sure Letitia Manary was a daughter of Joseph Manary and Caroline White. However, you may have learned a lot since you wrote in 2001. Did you ever go to the cemetery you mentioned? I would be very interested in what data you collected and would love to share with you what I have. I'm not sure if my email address shows up in this message, but it'sgarbar@columbiacable.net. I'd love to hear from you.

Cheers, Barbara
