Martin was born on 11 Nov 1836, the third child born to Joe and Rose, and baptized at the Catholic church on 20 November.
When Martin was 17 years old in 1853, he emigrated by himself from Poland to America to escape conscription into the Prussian Army. His father did not want him conscripted into the Germany army, so he arranged Martin’s passage to America. According to the National Archives, Martin was well-educated because he could speak Polish and German plus he could write in Polish, German and Latin. Martin found employment as a laborer in Detroit and awaited the arrival of his family the following year. Martin was 5’6”, dark-complexioned, grey-eyed and had brown hair. He always wore a beard.
When Andrew married Ann in 1854, he listed his birthplace as “Czarnkow,” according to Eduard Skendzel.

Note: Over the years, Thomas’s last name was spelled: Gemars, Gemmars, Gammons, Gemaris, Gomers, Jamars, Jemmars, Jammers. I have no idea which is the correct spelling. I think the pronunciaton must have been “Gem (like a precious stone)-erz,” however, for the constant confusion if the initial consonant is a “G” or a “J.” I could not find an etymology for any of the spellings.

1851 Census of Canda West (Ontario), Brant County, Dumfries:
Thomas Gemares, labourer, born in Ireland, Catholic, age 35.
This is probably the same person, but not positive. Dumfries is about 60 miles east of London. If this is the correct man, perhaps he moved to London and met and married Mary Tooher there.

I have checked with Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Paris, Ontario (the only Catholic church in South Dumfries, as the township was mainly settled by Scots Presbyterians and second-generation United Empire Loyalists) and St. Peter’s Catholic Church in London, Ontario and neither has a marriage record of Thomas Gemars and Mary Tooher. I also checked with the South Dumfries Historical Society and the Paris Museum and Historical Society about the pair, but have found no records other than the 1851 Census.

GEMARS in the Grand Rapids City Directories and other sources:
1867-’68—Jemmars, Thomas, baker, Sears & Merchant, 18 Monroe St.
1868-’69—Jemmars, Thomas, baker, Sears & Merchant, resides ne corner of Ann and Washington.
Sears and Merchant bakery made crackers and biscuits. Years later it became part of a consortium and was eventually rolled into Nabisco.

1870 Federal Census—Thomas Jemmars (55), Mary Jemmars (55), Theresa Jemmars (20), and Bridget Haney (50) live at 825 street not named in the Second Ward of Grand Rapids. I think “Theresa Gemars” is really “Teresa Tooher.”

1872—Gemmars, Thomas, baker, resides Carrier

1873—Thomas’s wife, Mary Gemars, dies. Thomas buys Lot 2 Old 9-3 in St. Andrew’s Cemetery and she is buried there. I have searched every Mary who died in Kent Co. in 1873 on FamilySearch.org, but her death is not listed there.

1873-’75—Jamars, Thomas, baker, Sears & Merchant, res. ns Carrier between Plainfield and Norths aves.

1875—Thomas Gemars was 67 yrs. and probably retired, as he is no longer found in the City Directories until 1886.

Citizenship: there is no record of Thomas applying for US Citizenship in the State of Michigan.

1880 Federal Census—I cannot locate Thomas Gemars. He was not living on Carrier or E. Leonard (Dist. 145). He was not living in all of Dist. 139 (where the Little Sisters of the Poor are located) nor in Dist 144 (pp. 1-19, 39-43 where Finns were), nor with the John E. Tooher family. I also looked at every Thomas and Thos. in the city of Grand Rapids, and none is him. He was either missed by the index or the enumerator.

1886-1898—Thomas Jammars is an “inmate” at The Home for the Aged, 158 E. Lafayette, run by the Little Sisters of the Poor

1898—As soon as Pat Finn dies, his widow Mary Finn has Thomas Gemars, her step-father, move in with the Finns at 67 Carrier. Tom continues to board there until his death. In the 1898 City Directory he is listed at Thomas E. Jammars.

1900 Census—Thomas Gomars is living with Mary Finn and four of her daughters. He is listed as a “stepfather,” meaning he was a second husband to Mary Finn’s mother? He stated he was born in Ireland, as were both of his parents.

20 Feb 1903—Thomas Jamars dies at 67 Carrier st. He was a 95 year old widower, born 1808 in England. He was buried at St. Andrew’s Cemetery by O’Brien Brothers undertakers.

According to family history, Patrick came to America with his brothers Charlie and James to work on the Erie Canal (or one of the other canals. Or maybe they were just escaping the Potato Famine.) Patrick told the 1900 census enumerator that he arrived in America in 1847 and was a Naturalized citizen. Patrick’s obituary in the Kalamazoo Gazette places his immigration to America in 1853 and his arrival in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1858. James disappeared soon after they arrived and may have settled in Chicago.
Patrick was godfather to his brother Charlie’s kids, Mike and Theresa Reynolds.

While the hose cart team was running at their highest speed, down Burdick, the tongue fell down and only by the utmost exertion was the driver enabled to retain his seat and keep the horses in the middle of the street.

Kalamazoo Gazette:
11 May 1888—page 6: “A YOUNG FORGER Beats Patrick Reynolds Out of $14—Wm. E. Hill’s Name Forged. About 8:30 o’clock Saturday evening a young, smooth faced man, apparently 20 years old, bought a sack of flour, sack of salt and some soda of Patrick Reynolds of north Burdick street and ordered it delivered to H. D. Allen, near the G.R. & I. depot. His purchases amounted to 80 cents and he gave a check for $14 purported to have been signed by W. E. Hill. He received the balance in cash. The check, it was afterwards learned, was a forgery. The young man wore a dark coat and light pants and had one ‘crooked eye.’ The police were looking for him last night, but it is believed that he left the city and the search has been given up.”
11 May 1888—page 8: “Successful Sharpers. Last week was a good one for oily and tongued and desperate sharpers in this city and for one reason and another the men who came out best in the operations all escaped with their carcasses and boodle…” The article goes on to recount a string of sob stories and bad checks that the culprits used to gain money. “…The young man who worked the forged check on Patrick Reynolds did a wholesale business Saturday evening while the marshal and young Reynolds were making the rounds of the saloons before the members of the police force knew the description of the man. The sheriff was not notified until Sunday morning and then Mr. Reynolds called on him and gave a description of the crook….”

16 Oct 1900—”Mrs. Patrick Reynolds has gone to Greater New York for a two months’ stay with friends.”
29 Nov 1900—”Watch and $40. Secured by Burglars at Patrick Reynolds’ Home. Burglars entered the home of Patrick Reynolds in south Park street Wednesday morning and secured Mr. Reynolds’ watch and a sack containing about $40. None of the occupants of the house were awakened. An attempt was also made to enter the house of Holland Simmons, but Mrs. Simmons was awakened by the noise as her bedroom window was raised, and the burlgar quickly withdrew. He left a chisel with which he raised the window, on the sill.”
1 Dec 1900—”WATCH RECOVERED. Patrick Reynolds Gets His Time Piece Back In Peculiar Manner. The watch stolen by the burglar from the residence of Patrick Reynolds Tuesday night has been recovered in a peculiar manner. The thief after his operations in this city evidently went to Grand Rapids, where he was making numerous raids. At one place some dogs frightened the thief away and as he fled he threw away two overcoats. These were taken in charge by the police and in the pocket of one was found a watch which corresponded with the description which has been sent out by the officers of theis city. Deputy Sheriff Clark went to Grand Rapids and identified the watch and brought it home.”

Patrick contracted pneumonia around April 14 and died of it on 5 May 1901 in Kalamazoo.

Kalamazoo Evening Telegraph:
6 May 1901—”Patrick Reynolds. Death of a Well-Known Resident of this City. One of Kalamazoo’s old and respected citizens, Patrick Reynolds, died at the family residence 622 S. Park street at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon. About three weeks ago he became ill of pneumonia, which complicated with a bronchial trouble of long standing refused to yield to medical skills, and death darkened the door of a happy home, removing a loving husband and father, a good citizen and friend.
“Mr. Reynolds leaves besides his wife and eight children, James J., George J., Mrs. james E. Doyle, Mrs. Lawrence Verdon and the Misses Ellen, Sarah and Bessie Reynolds of this city, and Mrs. William Bryar of Dowagiac who has been in attendance at her father’s bedside nearly the entire period of his illness. Mrs. Sarah who was stricken with the dame disease at about the same time is still quite seriously sick.
“Mr. Reynolds was born in the county Leitrim, Ireland, sixty-eight years ago coming to this country when about twenty years of age. After a short residence in the east he came to this city in 1858 where he had since made his home. For many years he was engaged in active business and, although of later years he had led a somehwat retired life he was always interested in the welfare and prosperity of the city.
“The funeral will be held at St. Augustine’s church Tuesday morning at 9 o’clock; burial at Riverside.”

7 May 1901 (?)—”At St. Augustine’s; Funeral This Morning of Patrick Reynolds. The funeral of the late Patrick Reynolds was held this morning at St. Augustine’s church, high mass being said at 9 o’clock. An effective sermon was delivered by Father Joseph. Large numbers of beautiful floral offerings bespoke the respect in which the deceased was held. The bearers were John Blaney, Daniel Harrigan, James Phalen, Patrick Lochlin, Patrick Shanley and John Lamb. Burial at Riverside.”

Kalamazoo Gazette:
7 May 1901—“Another of Kalamazoo’s old and respected citizens, Patrick Reynolds, passed away Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock at his home, 622 south Park street. His age was 68 years, he having been born in Leitrim county, Ireland. He came to America when 20 years of age, and to Kalamazoo in 1858, where he has since resided. He leaves besides his wife eight children—James J., George J., Mrs, James Doyle, Mrs. Lawrence Verdon, and the Misses Ellen, Sarah and Bessie Reynolds of this city, and Mrs. William Bryar of Dowagiac, who has been in attendance at her father’s bedside nearly the entire period of his illness. Miss Sarah, who was stricken with the same disease at about the same time, is still quite seriously ill.
“Three weeks ago he was taken with pneumonia which, in connection with a bronchial trouble of long standing, caused death. He has been a good citizen and dutiful father and will be much missed. He has been a staunch democrat and a public spirited man. He has not been active in business for some years.
“The funeral will be held at St. Augustine’s church Tuesday morning at 9 o’clock; burial at Riverside.”

8 May 1901—p. 6:”FUNERALS. Patrick Reynolds. The last sad rites for the late Patrick Reynolds were solemnized at St. Augustine’s church at 9 o’clock Tuesday morning. Requiem high mass was celebrated by Father Joseph Kraemer and an earnest sermon delivered by him.
“At the house the remains lay amid a wealth of floral beauty. There were rich and beautiful floral pieces from the many personal friends of deceased, and of the family, and also handsome designs from the B.P.O.E., No. 50 [Elks] and from every department of the American Carriage company.
“The bearers were James Phelan, John Shields, John Lamb, Patrick Laughlin, John Blaney and Daniel Harrigan. At Riverside, where internment took place, the grave was lined with evergreens and flowers and the family lot was brightened with the many flowers which had been arranged by the hands of loving friends. Misses Kate McSweeney, Jeunie and Carrie Zander had the flowers in charge.
“A brother, Charles Reynolds, his son Charles, Jr. of Caledonia, Michigan, and Peter Reynolds, a nephew of deceased, from Grand Rapids, were in attendance.”
An attempt was made to learn more about the nephew, Peter Reynolds. Since he was not Patrick’s brother Charles’ son, the logical conclusion is that he was their brother James’s son. There was one Peter Reynolds who was a fireman for the railroad in Grand Rapids but he doesn’t seem to be the right person, as his father was also named Peter Reynolds, born in New York. There is another Peter Reynolds in the 1880 Census for Grand Rapids who was a shoe repairer; it turns out, however, that this man’s name was really “Patrick” Reynolds in the 1870 and 1900 Censuses and the enumerator mistakenly recorded his first name as “Peter” in 1880. So the nephew who attended Patrick’s funeral is a dead end.
The funeral register at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church lists “Pat Reynolds” death as 5 May 1901.
Patrick’s parents names are not listed on his death certificate nor their birthplaces. His burial card at Catholic Riverside Cemetery (administered by Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Kalamazoo), simply says he was buried in 1901, along with Mary Reynolds (died 1877) and Frankie P. Reynolds (buried 1872, age 4 years). The three are buried in Lot 77, Section A and all have individual markers. Right next to them, in Lot 78, are Margaret Reynolds (died and buried 1921), James J. Reynolds (died and buried 20 Oct 1924), Ellen Reynolds (died and buried 4 Feb 1941), and George J. Reynolds (died and buried 23 Mar 1942). All four have individual markers which simply give their name and year of death except for George’s, which also says: “Co. C, 32nd Michigan Volunteer Infantry.” John Gannon, Margaret Reynolds’s first husband, is also buried with them.

Sometime after 1940, and probably in the ‘70s or ‘80s, the Reynolds’ family home was torn down and made into a parking lot for the church two lots away.

Adriaan Jan deWilligen was born in the Hague, Netherlands on the 6th of August 1835. His father was a Protestant clergyman and Adriaan was one of seven children; he had four brothers and two sisters.
Adriaan became a professional soldier stationed in Harderwijk, Netherlands, where he was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant on 4 Dec 1855. He received a transfer to the Dutch East Indies on 18 Dec 1856 and left the Netherlands on March 28, 1857 aboard the ship “Noord-Brabant” with some 200 soldiers who were under his command for the Dutch East Indies, his brother Frank among them. In the newspaper “Algemeen Dagblad” which was, and is, a national newspaper with roots in Rotterdam of April 11, 1857, Adriaan published an ad that read:
“By these the OFFICERS undersigned, on board the frigate Noord-Braband, bring [bid], at their departure for the INDIES, a LAST FAREWELL to blood relatives  and friends.
J.G.D. Ober Schorfheide, 2nd Lt. comm. [commander]
A.J. de Willigen, 2nd Lt.
W.H. van de Pol, 2nd Lt.”

On arrival in the Dutch East Indies on 18 Jul 1857, he was placed in the Artillery Regiment-9th Battalion Infantry in Sinkawang in west Borneo (west Kalimantan). After an incident on 1 Nov 1858, he was put on non-active duty and received half-pay for some time. Restored to activity on 15 Dec 1858. On 20 Jan 1859 Adriaan was transferred to the garrison battalion on the west coast of Borneo, and promoted to First Lieutenant on July 2, 1859. In addition to Adriaan and Frank, another DeWilligen brother, Abraham, was also in the Dutch East Indies.
Adriaan made at least two friendships there: Kornelis Lignian, a fellow First Lieutenant, and the Bornean woman who would become the mother of his daughter, Cornelia. There is no evidence to show they married, but the woman died in childbirth in April/May 1862. Adriaan named his baby daughter “Cornelia” after his sister or his friend Kornelis Lignian.
When Cornelia was born on 28 Apr 1862 and her mother died in the process, Adriaan assumed responsibility for his daughter.
Adriaan died of unknown causes in Singkawang on 10 Dec 1862, when Cornelia was but six months old. His friend Kornelis Lignian took responsibility for the baby girl. See her “notes” for more details. Adriaan’s mother was dead before her granddaughter Cornelia was born, and Adriaan’s father died when Cornelia was seven months old.

From David Stoll (b. 1952 in Grand Rapids), descendent of James Leslie Tooher’s grandfather Wilhelm Glauz:
James Leslie Tooher played football for the University of Colorado and graduated from there with an engineering degree. Norm Stoll [a relative of David’s and cousin of James Leslie’s] remembers “Leslie,” as he was called, “as a handsome, stocky guy with whitish-pink skin, dark hair and a wonderful baritone voice. When he spoke, you looked up. I never heard a voice like that. I remember the second time I saw him, we were over at Don Glauz’s home. He had a beautiful voice, low and sonorous, and was very interesting to listen to.” Leslie went to work as an engineer for General Electric in Schenectady, New York and spent the rest of his life there. He was also an expert bridge player, holding a “master’s” ranking, and travelled to national tournaments. He had two children.

In the 1930 U.S. Federal Census “Leslie” and wife Margaret were living at a home they rented at 1022 Stanford St. in Schenectady, New York. His Social Security number was 074-03-4510.
There were two obituaries about Leslie Tooher in the Schenectady Daily Gazette on 24 Mar 1990. The paid one said:
“TOOHER—On March 22, 1900; James Leslie Tooher of Valencia Road. Husband of Margaret M. Tooher. Father of James M. Tooher of Chathan, NJ and Marjorie L. Dittberner of Denver, CO. Grandfather of Judith Morin of Jamaica Plain, NJ and Allison Tooher of Madison, WI. Great-grandfather of Alexander and Isabella Morin both of Jamaica Plan, NJ. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral service which will be held Monday afternooon at one o’clock at the Jones Funeral Home, 1503 Union St. There will be no calling hours by request. Friends who so desire may makes contributions in his memory to the Union Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund, 1068 Park Ave. or to a charity of one’s choice. Internment Memory’s Garden.”
The news article said: “James L. Tooher, 88, GE Statistician, Colorado Born. Schenectady—A service will be held for James Leslie Tooher, 88 of Valencia Rd, who died Thursday at Ellis Hospital after a brief illness. Born in Pueblo, Colorado, Mr. Tooher was a Schenectady resident for many years. He graduated from the Universioty of Colorado in 1922 and received a degree in engineering. For 37 years he was a statistician for the General Electric Co., retiring in 1961. Mr. Tooher was a member of Tau Beta Pi fraternity at the University of Colorado, life member of the Edison Club, and a member of Union Presbyterian Church. Survivors include his wife, Margaret M. Tooher; a son, james M. Tooher of Chatham, NJ; a daughgter Marjorie L. Dittberner of Denver, Colorado; two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The service will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at Jones Funeral Home, 1503 Union St.”
His granddaughter, Allison Tooher Johnson of South Carolina, said James died of a type of leukemia.

From Genealogy of the Bigelow Family, page 42:
By his will, dated April 15, 1758, Joseph gave “unto Sarah daughter of son Joseph jun'r late of Weston property which were mine before my marriage with my present wife, but if Sarah should die before me, then it shall go to Thankful my wife.” He probably died a few years after, as his widow Thankful married, June 5, 1766, Ezra Graves of Sudbury. We find by records in the Registry of Deeds Office at Cambridge, that Joseph, Senior, sold Joseph, Jr., a tract of land in Weston, June 6, 1753, and by the same records we find that he deeded Joseph, Jr., one-half of a farm in Weston with half of the buildings thereon for five hundred pounds, dated May 30, 1755, and on Sept. 1, 1755, they made an agreement in the further division of the farm, so we have abundant reason for believing that he had a son Joseph, we also find that Joseph and wife Thankful sold their interest in the estate of William Robinson Sept. 24, 1760, from which we infer that he was living at that time.

ORRIN M. NORTON, who resides on section 2, Squaw Grove township, where he owns and operates a farm of five hundred and forty-five acres, came to Illinois in 1836 and is therefore justly entitled to the name of pioneer. He is a native of Ohio, born in Geauga county, November 27, 1825. His grandfather, Phineas Norton, was a native of Scotland, a pioneer of Vermont and a soldier in the Revolutionary war. His father, Robert Norton, was a native of Vermont, born in 1785, and who, as a young man, moved to Geauga county, Ohio, where he cleared a tract of land and engaged in active farm life. He there married Louisa Monroe, a native of Connecticut, her father, Joseph Monroe, being a pioneer of Ohio. The Monroes are of Scotch and English descent. In 1836 Robert Norton removed with his family to Kane county, Illinois, located near the village of Big Rock, where he resided for some years, then came to De Kalb county and purchased the farm where our subject now resides, where his death occurred in 1845, at the age of sixty-two years. His wife survived him many years, dying in 1878. They were the parents of three children, our subject being the eldest. Ora T. married Robert Waudby and resides in Sioux City, Iowa. Mary Jane married David Harmon, of De Kalb county. The subject of this sketch came to Illinois when eleven years of age, his boyhood and youth being spent in Kane and De Kalb counties. The education he received in the pioneer schools was very meager, but he has since become a well informed man by reading and observation. He remained with his father till the latter's death and then took charge of the farm and business. He was married in Kane county, Illinois, December 25, 1853, to Miss Jemima Drake, a native of Allegany county. New York, and a daughter of Eda and Hannah Drake, who were among the pioneers of Kane county. After his marriage Mr. Norton purchased one hundred and sixty acres which he located with a land warrant. He at once commenced the improvement of the place, and as his means increased bought more land until his farm comprised five hundred and forty-five acres. His farm is well equipped with all necessary outbuildings and modern utensils, and on the place is a neat and commodious residence. Although he commenced life with very limited means, he has been very successful and ranks with the best farmers of his township. Of the two children born to Mr. and Mrs. Norton, Alice died at the age of two and a half years. Charles grew to manhood, married Jennie Crosby and has three living children, Elmer, Carrie and Edna Blanche. He is now engaged in farming the old homestead. From the organization of the party to the present time, Mr. Norton has been an ardent Republican, and has given earnest support to every presidential nominee of the party. Both he and his wife are members of the Batavia Christian church, Mrs. Norton having been a member for about thirty-five years. When Mr. Norton came to Illinois, Chicago was but an insignificant village, and he has lived to see it take rank as the second city in the union. The changes that have been made in the sixty-two years of his residence in Illinois can scarcely be conceived. An almost unbroken wilderness at the time of his arrival, the Country is now dotted with flourishing villages, and the magnificent farms with their large dwelling houses and barns indicate that the people are indeed prosperous. The prosperity attending others has in a measure been meted out to him, and he is numbered today among the leading citizens of Squaw Grove township, with many friends throughout Kane and De Kalb counties.

Henry was baptized at Sacred Heart Church in Youngstown, Ohio on 27 Nov 1921. His Aunt and Uncle, Frank and Dora Gainard, were his Godparents.
Henry attended grade school at Sacred Heart in Youngstown, Ohio. His mother, Anna (Ann), sent him to first grade when he was only four years old. One day in the fall, after he'd been attending for quite a few weeks, Henry wanted a drink of water while out on the playground. The line was very long, and Henry decided it'd be quicker to run home and get a drink. Anna didn't say a word when he walked in the door, assuming the school had caught onto the fact that he wasn't old enough. She didn't send him back until the next September.
When Henry was five years old, he went to see a Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Giants baseball game with his father Tom. On the way to Pittsburgh from Youngstown (75 miles) to see the game, the car had seven flat tires -- not so uncommon in 1926 due to the poor quality of tires and roads. While they were fixing one of the flats, a curious young Henry removed the steering wheel. Although his father was angry with him, Henry was cajoled into putting the wheel back on because he was the only one who knew how to do it!
The Moores had a vacant field behind their home. The kids played softball almost daily in the summer. In the fall, they played touch football. They organized a baseball team and played wherever they could get a game during high school. The kids played many games at the Lincoln Park playground in the summer, where there was also a swimming pool. Teachers organized games at the Park to earn extra money in the summer. They also played horseshoes, checkers and a game called "washers," where people tried to toss large metal washers into a can.
Henry played guard on the football team at Sacred Heart School. He was quite small and thin, but fast. For the sandlot games he was quarterback, dictating all the strategy and plays. There was a lot of fighting, too. It was easy to win if you just didn't quit.
Henry attended East High School. He was very independent from an early age. In an 26 May 1938 article in the East High newspaper, it is reported: “Kent was again the scene of a great scholastic battle on Saturday, May 7. Thirty-two students representing East were contestants. Wehn the mental strain was over, eight studentds ahd placed, which gave East seventh place in the Northeastern part of Ohio. The winners were Henry Moore, who place fourth, and Joseph Harvey, eighth in world history...”
Before he went into the service at age 18, he checked himself into the hospital for an operation he needed, never telling his family.
Henry flew 50 successful B25 missions over Italy and Romania in World War II and that entitled him to 30 days' leave. (He eventually completed 61 missions.) Asked why he flew the "extra" 11 missions, Henry later said he was "young, and thought he was immortal." This impression must have later changed when the pilot on his right wing went down. Mostly his targets were bridges and other small strategic sites and sometimes Henry flew two missions a day. In addition to dropping bombs, they also dropped propaganda leaflets to encourage the Italians to end the War. A flight surgeon examined every pilot after each mission to make sure they were still physically and psychologically capable of flying. Henry earned the rank of Captain in the Air Force, the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, four clusters for Meritorious Combat.
Henry's three brothers were also in the service. Brother Jack took a leave to attend Henry and Mary's wedding on Dec. 27, 1944. It was a cold day. Henry's father,Tom, couldn't attended the wedding because he had the Flu. The wedding reception was at the Ohio Hotel on Boardman St. in Youngstown. Some of Nora's friends did not show (Mary's mother). The Rhattigans had some family and close friends back to their home on E. Avondale after the reception. Mary's brother Bud was supposed to return to the house and drive Jack Moore to the train station so he could catch his ship back to Italy, but Bud never showed up (he was an alcoholic). Jack almost missed his train, but his uncle Henry McNicholas got him there in time to run and jump onto the moving train. Thus court martial was avoided. The bride and groom honeymooned in Miami Beach, Fla.
World War II Career:

- Captain in the Air Force

- Medals: Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, four clusters for Meritorious Combat.

- Flew B-25s, twin engine bombers (same that Gen. Doolittle flew against Tokyo)

- Completed 61 missions (50 was standard)

Since Henry was still in the service when they married, the couple first lived in Pampa, Texas where Henry was stationed. From there they moved to Enid, Oklahoma and then back to San Antonio, TX. Henry received orders to report to Sacramento, CA. Mary, seven months pregnant with their first child, drove home to Youngstown while Henry went on to CA. Their son Timothy Micahel was born on March 12, 1947 and Mary made the long and difficult train rtide to CA with her baby and sister Von two months later. Henry received orders to go to Japan, but asked for a received, a hardship discharge which came through on the last day of 1947. He had been in the Air Corps for five years, attaining the rank of Captain.
Henry and Mary rented an apartment in Glacier Heights, a suburb of Youngstown, and Henry worked in one of the steelmills. A few years later they moved to a cottage at 184 Maywood Dr., in back of Henry’s Aunt Dora’s house. A second child was born on April 30, 1950, and they named him Terence. Henry became a salesman for Mark’s Tractor and later was promoted to General Manager. He began attending night school at Youngstown College in 1950 or '51, carrying 18 hrs. at first. It took him about five years to graduate.
With two children the Moores needed a larger home, so they bought one at 61 Romaine St. The most vivid memory of that home came during a particularly heavy rainstorm ion 1953. Mary and the boys were sitting on the top of the basement stairs, watching the water build up in the window wells when, suddenly, the basement walls collapsed from the extreme pressure. Mary scooped up a child in each arm and made it to safety just in time.
A few years later they built a home in a new development at 6 Ron Joy St. It had a picture window, a back porch, a white brick fireplace and a spacious backyard. The basement was quite large and there family and friends played ping-pong. The home was only a few miles from Mill Creek Park. The whole family enjoyed playing golf there on the 36-hole course.
In 1960 Henry was transferred to Cleveland. They rented a home there on Chesterfield Dr. in Parma Heights. They didn’t stay long, though, for Henry found a job the following year ion Grand Rapids, Michigan, working for Contractor’s Machinery Co. Some years later he became the Vice-President of a new company, Northern Equipment Co. Through his leadership, the business flourished.
In 1974 Henry and Mary decided to move to a more pleasant climate and Henry took a job with H.B. Owsley and Sons, another heavy equipment company, in Charlotte, NC. They rented an apartment until a condominium was available at River Hills, a beautiful golf community just inside SC. Henry got a hole-in-one at the River Hills Country Club on 23 Jul 1977, using a 4-wood on the 179-yard 17th hole.
In the late 1980s Mary discovered she had breast cancer. She had the tumor removed and then suffered terribly from radiation therapy. That, and the drug Tamoxifen, gave Mary five more years of life. She and Henry moved back to Grand Rapids inb 1992 to be closer to their sons and their families.
Henry loved the voices of Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis and Kay Starr. His favorite song was "Moon River." He was an omnivorous reader, especially on such subjects as the Civil War and the Revolutionary War. Loved poetry of Emily Dickinson and Faulkner’s short story, “A Rose for Emily.” He was also a self-taught gardener and rose bush enthusiast through books. Henry wrote many "Letters to the Editor" of newspapers, abhored handguns, was in favor of universal health care, and voting on weekends to increase voter turnout.
After his wife Mary died, Henry joined a “Widowers” group. There he met Eleanor Wallin. When Henry began seeing Dr. Ramsahouie at the V.A. in 1999, he weighed 180 lbs. He learned that he had diabetes and put himself on a strict diet to avoid medication. He was successful and brought his diabetes under control. He lost most of his hearing due to the airplane noise during the War and wore hearing aids.Henry and Ellie were companions from 1993 until Henry’s death in 2008. Henry moved from an apartment to Villa Maria Retirement Home in 2007. By February 2008, he weighed 106 lbs. He died peacefully in his lounge chair.
Henry was cremated and he and Mary buried together at the Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta, Michigan. His obituary in The Grand Rapids Press read: “Henry Donald Moore, age 86, passed away peacefully on July 22, 2008. Born on November 15, 1921 in Youngstown, Ohio, Henry was preceded in death by his loving wife Mary, and is survived by his sons Tim Moore of West Olive, MI and Bonita Springs, FL, and Terry (Deb) Moore of Gand Rapids; four grandchildren, Sara Moore of Falls Church, VA, Jamie Moore of Newport Beach, CA, Brenna Seitz (John) of Boston and Emily Brouillet (Richard) of Boston; great granddaughter Tavia Mary Seitz; and his dear friend, Ellie Wallin of Greenville, MI. Nicknamed “Hep,” Henry was a legendary member of the Dumpside Aces football team in Youngstown and, according to The Vindicator, once scored five touchdowns in a game. He graduated from East High School where he was an honors student and state champion in history. During WWII, he joined the U.S. Air Force where he served as First Lieutenant as a B-25 pilot in the 321st Bombardment Group in southern France and Italy. Piloting 61 missions, Henry received several medals including the Distinguished Flying Cross. Leaving the service with the rank of Captain, Henry settled back in Youngstown where he attended Youngstown College on the GI Bill and later became a successful executive in the construction machinery business that eventually led him to Grand Rapids. A self-taught maven on many subjects, one of his favorite expressionas was, “It’s all in the reading.” He was a loyal patron of public libraries and loved to browse the stacks and read various periodicals — often leading to a “Letter to the Editor.” Fiercely independent, Henry espoused diligent honest work, a good education, courage and a sense of humor. In his heyday, a perfect day for Henry might include mastering a crossword, enjoying a brisk round of golf with his sons at Green Ridge CC, admiring his grandchildren, tending to his rose bushes, and dancing gracefully with his beloved Mary to the sounds of Guy Lombardo. Heartfelt gratitude is extended to Dr. Gary Humphries, personal physician; to Dr. Andrew Ramsahoi and the VA Outpatient Clinic staff; and to the Villa Maria and Plus Care staffs for the care, patience and kindness shown Henry. Per Henry’s wishes, cremation has taken place. At a later date, the family will hold a private memorial service at Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta, MI. Memorial contributions may be made to the Killgoar Foundation (1935 Plymouth Rd. SE, 49506) or to the Evans Scholars Foundation (1 Briar Rd., Golf, IL, 60029).”

I cannot find a baptism record or a marriage record for Peter Moore.
Peter, his wife Mary neé Cottier and their daughter Christian Moore are buried together in the Old Kirk Braddan Cemetery. His gravestone says: “To the Memory of PETER MOORE of the Town of Douglas who departed this Life on the 27th of April 1835, Aged 86 years. To the memory of Mary Cottier wife of the above Peter Moore who departed this life the 14th January 1831 aged 70 years.”
On the stone next to theirs, actually touching theirs, is carved: “Christian Moore, daughter of Peter and Mary Moore junior, of Douglas who departed this Life on the 2nd day of March 1803, Aged 8 years. Also Elizabeth Moore who departed this Life 14th of May 1823, aged 29 years. Catherine Moore who departed this life 29th August 1833, aged 37 years. Also Mary Ann Moore who departed this life 14th of July 1847, aged 57 years.” Although the ages and birthdates do not perfectly align, it would seem these are four daughters of Peter and Mary. The names are right.

In 1930, William was working, but the Census record is so messy that I cannot read his profession. (He owned a Yellow Cab taxi business.) In 1932 William was living with his wife Aldea at 57 Fairmont Ave.

In the 1900 Census, Henry is listed as “Joseph H.”
Henry had a 1929 Chevrolet that he sold in 1940. He had taken impeccable care of it and, after 11 years, it only had 10,000 miles on it, from trips to and from church. The new owner picked up the car, leaving with about six kids jumping up and down in the backseat. Henry went wild over this, but it was too late.
Henry continued to live in the house on S. Maple with his sister Edna until his death sometime between 1974 and 1980, I’d say. 
McNicholas, Henry (I745)

Jack Moore’s (b. 1924 ) research indicated that Bridget was the couple’s third child. Perhaps both children died young.
The address on Ann's death certificate is 4 Dolans Yard, Oxford St., Warrington, England. She died of Acute Capillary Bronchitis Ascites and was buried in Warrington. 
Garry, Anne (I420)

Jack’s father was 48 yrs. when he was born, and Jack only had one memory of a father-son outing: Tom took the youngester to a Pittsburg Pirates baseball game in Pittsburg by train during the summer of 1938.
Jack’s mom was bed-ridden with cancer beginning around Jan 1940. During this time the fourteen-year-old Jack did all the cooking and packed lunches for the rest of the family. They each gave him some money every week for the groceries and he was also able to pay off the mortgage on their home at 314 S. Truesdale during this time. The Dollar Savings & Trust had the mortgage and they only asked for the interest; they weren’t concerned if people didn’t pay off the principal. Jack graduated from East High School in Jun 1943 and entered the Navy on July 16, during World War II. He was stationed at the US Navy Armed Guard in Brooklyn, New York and later, when the War in Europe was over, transferred to New Orleans where he boarded a new water barge YW118 and travelled through the Panama Canal and ended up in San Diego in 1946. He was discharged in April ‘46. Jack joined the Naval Reserve for four years and almost got caught in the Korean War. His enlistment ran out in April 1950, two months before the Korean War began.
Jack entered college at Ohio University in 1946 on the GI Bill. 
Moore, John “Jack” F. (I782)

Joe came to America from Acri, Italy via South America and through Ellis Island, NY. He Americanized his name from “Guiseppe Girardi” to “Joseph Girard,” but used both. He made two friends aboard ship, Mariano Molinari and Nicola or Antonio Amieri. They married when Joe was 25 and Conceta a mere 13. Molinari married Concetta sister Carmella.
Joe read, wrote, and spoke Italian, Latin and English. He was an elegant and eloquent man. He worked for E. J. Cross Company in Worcester, an engineering company. He purchased some real estate, three large properties and the building where Angelo Luzzo ran his Luzzo’s Market.
The Girards lived in the area of Worcester known as St. Bernard’s where Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church was located. Many Italian familes attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel, though, as all the Masses there were said in Italian.
Joe wouldn’t let anyone take his photograph.

1900 US Federal Census for Worcester, Ward 3:
Joseph Girard not listed in the census index and a house-to-house search of the 3rd Ward (with the exception of Districts 1728 and 1729), did not reveal him. The enumerator went directly from #6 to #14 Norfolk St. in District 1732.

1903, 1904, 1909 Worcester City Directories:
Joseph Girard, laborer, lives at rear of 10 Norfolk St.

1910 U.S. Federal Census
Living at a home they own (with a mortgage) at 10 Norfolk St. in Worcester, Ward 3, Precinct 3:
Girard, Joseph, head, 37 years, married for seven years, born in Itaty as were both of his parents, speaks English, works as a hod carrier for the building trades, can read and write.
Girard, Conchett, wife, 22 years, has had five children, three are alive, born in Italy as were both of her parents, can read and write.

1918 Worcester Directory:
Girard, Joseph, laborer at 356 Franklin, lives at 10 Norfolk St.

Joe died in the 1918 worldwide influenza epidemic. His death certificate is found in the Massachusetts Death Index, 1901-1980, Vol. 138, page 141.

Incidentally, the term “Wop” initially meant “without papers” when a person came to the U.S.

Some years after he died, an attorney contacted the Girards from Philadelphia, saying Joseph was entitled to an inheritance, but the family chose not to claim it. 
Girard, Joseph (Giuseppe) (I1422)

Maggie’s aunt Johanna Marie Dunne bought a Ship & Rail Ticket to America for Maggie. Instead, her sister Mary used it to travel to the USA, in the name of "Maggie Dunne”, arriving New York 15 May 1902. Mary met Patrick Broderick, Penure, Doon, Tralee at her mother's old home in Paddock (Meenoghane). Patrick emigrated and arrived in New York 17 July 1902. Mary emigrated " arriving New York 15 May 1902. Mary married Patrick in San Francisco on 25 April 1902.
Relatives in Ireland have checked for Margaret and William Burns’ death records in state and church records as well notices in the Irish Press to no avail.

The Olmsted Genealogy says on page 195 that the four children listed below were of Joseph Olmsted’s son Joseph Jr. who was born about 1706, married in 1737 Eunice Deming born 1708 and second Thankful Benedect born 1727.
i. Elizabeth Olmsted, b. 7 Nov 1718, d. 13 Oct 1798, m. at Ridgefield 25 Jan 1741/2 Daniel Smith (b. 6 Oct 1719, d. 22 Aug 1799, son of Ebenezer and Sarah (Collins) Smith of Ridgefield;
ii. Daniel Olmsted, b. 4 Apr 1720, d. 1806 or 1809 at Romulus, NY, m. 8 Aug 1741 Thankful Burt (b. 1 Sep 1721, dau. of Benjamin and Sarah (Belden) Burt);
iii. Richard Olmsted, b. 29 Mar 1722, d. 18 Nov 1772, m. at Ridgefield 18 Dec 1745 Esther Clark (d. Apr 1810, m. 2nd 1 Jan 1777 Daniel Whitlock of Wilton, CT); and
iv. James Olmstead, b. 6 Dec 1724, d. bef. 5 Sep 1757, m. Lydia.

Perhaps that’s a mistake in the genealogy and they were Joseph Sr’s children by a second wife.

The Families of Early Milford says it was Betty Whitney, not Elizabeth Olmsted, who was born 7 Nov 1718 and married Daniel Smith. Which is correct, or did Elizabeth Olmsted marry a Mr. Whitney before marrying Daniel Smith?

There is some confusion about William’s birthdate. His death certificate puts it at 19 Mar 1864, but in the 1870 US Census he is listed as being three years old, which would mean he was born in 1867. It would seem unusual that his parents would tell the census enumerator that he was 3 when he was really 6. If Wm. was born on 19 Mar 1867, that was one day after the marriage of his parents.

When he was older, William lived with his sister Nora and her husband Tom Rhattigan. Wm. is buried in Calvary Cemetery in Youngstown, Ohio. He suffered a fractured hip from falling out of bed around April 1, then died the 28th of a cerebral hemmorage. 
Leonard, William H. or J. (I626)

There were three William Cottiers christened in Lezayre in 1716:
1. 6 Jan, son of Robert and Marjory Cottier
2. 21 April, son on William and Ann Cottier
3. 9 Sept, son of William and Ann Cottier

To further complicate distinguishing who’s who, I believe that two of these three William Cottiers married women named Jane: Jane Kelly and Jane Commish.

I cannot find a marriage record for William Cottier and Jane Kelly.

The dates of the children are their baptism dates at Lezayre Church.

There is a gravestone right next to our Thomas and Peter Moore’s gravestone in the Kirk Braddan Cemetery with William Cottier (1716-1792), Jane Commish Cottier (1721-1790) and Philip Cottier (1746-1824) buried beneath. It’s hard to believe, from the proximity of the graves, that they are NOT related. I cannot find a marriage record for William Cottier and Jane Commish/Comish in IOM. There was a Jane Comish christened on 20 Feb 1721 in St. Anne, IOM, daughter of Jon and Eleanor Comish; that fits when the Jane Commish Cottier was born. 
Cottier, William (I2424)

There were two Thomas Curpheys born about this time:
1) 18 Mar 1763 in Malew, son of Thomas Curphey and Elizabeth Bridson
2) 24 Jun 1764 in Ramsey, son of William Curphey and Joney Kinrey

Tom and his family lived in Kirk Bradden on the Isle of Man where he was the Parish Clerk of Kirk Braddan for 45 years.
His gravestone in the Kirk Braadan Cemetery reads: “In memory of Thomas Curphey who departed this life Sep’r the 13th 1820, aged 70 years. He was 45 years parish clerk of KK Braddan. But now he’s gone and we remain below a little longer in this vale of woe. Why should we mourn like those whose hopes are vain as if we ne’er should see our friend again. Also of Jane Curphey alias Banks, wife of the above named, who departed this life on the 8th December 1846, aged 85 years.” (Cemetery site 410)

James Rooney (born 1927) told me in 2016: “My dad would take us to the Cummings farm to visit "uncle" Tom Cummings [my grandmother Lucy Cimmings Rooney’s brother] and his two sisters.  As I recall they were single.  They had electricity but no indoor plumbing, and pumped water by hand in the kitchen.  About 1936 oil  was found on the farm and many locations in the area.  They updated the farm house and built a rustic three-hole golf course.  Uncle Tom passed away about this time [early 1940s]—he would have been 80 plus years.  The sisters and he had hired a farm hand and one of the sisters married him, which one I don't know.  We seldom visited the farm after that and after my dad died in October 1941.”

With thanks to Norman Stoll (1915-2011) and Lloyd Stoll (1920-2010)
for their recollections, and also to Peg Waring (1915-deceased),
Roy Glauz, Bill Glauz , Robert Werner, Sandy Werner, Keith Quimbach,
Kathy Stoll, and Betsy Stoll (1955-2008) for their genealogical research.

Roy Glauz of Palo Alto, California has traced the family name to Glautz in the 18th Century and Glautzen in the 17th Century. Bill Glauz of Kansas City has established contact with Walter and Karl-Heinz Glauz of Magdeburg, as well as Ingrid and Dieter Glauz of Groschenau, who have retrieved information from the Christofsgrund baptismal register, now kept in Litomerice. The first Michael Glautzen in this source dates to 1677, as the father of the first of five children including a Michael Glautz (1683- ) who begets an Andreas Glautz (1710-1787) who begets a Johann Wenzel Glautz (1759-1832) who begets a Johann Anton Glautz (1790- ). Johann Anton was a farmer and forester. Together with Maria-Anna Knesche (1796), Johann Anton begot two daughters and six sons:
Franziskus Xavenius
Anton –to U.S.
Wilhelm –to U.S. (our ancestor)
Karl (Walter and Karl-Heinz’s great-grandfather)
Johanna (died as an infant)

Neither Norm nor Lloyd Stoll of Grand Rapids, Michigan ever met their great-grandfather Wilhelm or William Glauz (1831-1912). He died before they were born. But they heard stories about him from their grandmother Wilhelmina (Minnie) Glauz (1866-1956), whom they addressed as Nanna—little Norm’s version of her name. During their childhood Norm and Lloyd also met Wilhelm’s sons and daughters, their great-aunts and uncles. Now that the Stolls of Grand Rapids are learning more about Wilhelm and his family from Glauz family genealogists, here is what Norm and Lloyd remember. Norm knew that Grandpa Glauz had been in the military but never understood that he was in the Austrian army, or that he was in the army for a long time. Here is what he was told: “Wilhelm was a shoemaker, he was a shoe repairman, he was in a cart and would bring up the rear of the march in the last cart, to repair the boots of the troops and keep them going. He used to brag to his nephew [who would this be?], I had the easiest life in the army because I got to ride in the wagon and repair the shoes.” Norm remembers a photo of Wilhelm’s brother wearing an immaculate white uniform and a sword--a six foot five or seven inch giant who became a career officer in the German army. “Nanna told me he was known as a ‘giant.’” Thus far we have not been able to name the brother or confirm in which army he would have served.

According to the research of Peg Waring of Davis, California, Wilhelm’s granddaugher through his son Rudy, “William Glauz was a cobbler in the Austrian army for twenty years, having spent ten years at the Italian front. His primary responsibility was making boots for the officers. He emigrated to America so that his sons would not be faced with military service.” If William was born in 1831 and came to the U.S. in 1866, this would mean that he was in military service no later than the age of fifteen—which is possible. However, the best translation that Bill Glauz can make of Wilhlem’s discharge papers from the Austrian army is that he was discharged on July 1, 1862. He was a shoemaker and served in the 5th Artillery Regiment and attained the rank of a sergeant with two stripes. He was on active duty for 8 years, 2 months and 8 days, then served in the reserves for an additional 2 years, 1 month and 5 days.

Wilhelm and his wife Barbara lived in the village of Cristofsgrund, in the township of Kratzau [Chrastava], which is now just inside Czechoslovakia where it comes together with Poland and Germany. Barbara Kleinwachter/ Kleinwechter (1834-1921) was born in the adjacent jurisdiction of Neuland—on the same road through the same valley. The closest city was Reichenberg, which is now the Czech city of Liberec, because this region was also the Sudetenland—the disputed area which Hitler seized from the Czech Republic in 1938 and from which millions of Germans were expelled at the end of the Second World War. The year that Wilhelm and Barbara left (1866) was the same year that Prussia defeated Austria and united Germany under Prussian rule in Berlin. Excluded was the Habsburg monarchy in Vienna which, in partnership with the Magyar aristocracy of Budapest, struggled to maintain control over a polyglot of increasingly restless Slavs and other ethnonational groups.

In short, Wilhelm and Barbara were from a border region between the Habsburg monarchy’s Austro-Hungarian empire and the Prussian monarchy’s new German empire. If Wilhelm didn’t want his sons to be forced into the army, the 1866 war between the two monarchies may have been the precipitating event. Wilhelm and Barbara also happen to have arrived in the U.S. a year after the end of the American Civil War (1861-65), which cut the flow of new arrivals from Germany even as many German immigrants served in the Union Army.

As of 2006, Glauz family researchers face contradictory information about where the Glauzes originated. Somewhere, Wilhelm’s son Harry obtained a Glauz coat of arms which reportedly dates back to noble service to the Habsburg Emperor Rudolph and locates them in the town of Linden-am-Boden, on the Bodensee (Lake Constance) between Germany and Switzerland. Yet when Roy Glauz and then Sandy Werner of Cleveland, Ohio visited Linden-am-Boden, also known as Lindau, neither were able to turn up any sign of the Glauz name or its coat of arms. The town archivist of Lindau informed Sandy that, down through the centuries, there have been half a dozen different Lindaus.

Meanwhile, Wilhelm and his identifiable forbears came from far to the northeast, in what was then the border region between Prussian-controlled Saxony and Austrian-controlled Bohemia, which has since become the border between the German and Czech republics. If the Glauzes indeed lived on Lake Constance, in that location they died out—or at least the male line and its surname did, making descendants difficult to trace. If a noble branch of the family became extinct, that would explain why the Glauzes on the Saxon-Bohemian border were commoners rather than genteel inheritors of a coat of arms. One clue that has yet to be checked out is that, according to Norm’s grandmother Nanna, her mother Barbara said the Glauzes were from Friedrichshafen, a German town on Lake Constance that is larger than Lindau.

Wilhelm married Barbara Kleinwachter in 1861. Their first two children, Matilda and Clotilda, were born in Germany, and came with them to the U.S. in 1866. Donald Glauz, Wilhelm’s grandson through his son Harry, found the passenger list for the ship that brought Wilhelm, his family and perhaps Wilhelm’s brother Anton from Bremerhaven to New York City. There was no Wilhelmina Glauz on it. But when they arrived in New York a Wilhelmina Glauz appears on the list, so we presume that she was born on the ship. Ellis Island did not exist as a way station until 1895. But Bill Glauz now thinks that Wilhelm’s brother Anton came over later; he is buried in Greenwood Cemetery on Leonard Street in Grands Rapids, together with the other Glauzes and with a death date of 1880.

Once in the United States, the Glauzes made their home in Chicago where Wilhelm worked as a boot repairman. According to what Norm was told, they lived in Chicago until they were burned out by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which left 90,000 people homeless. It is at this point that the Glauzes came to Grand Rapids according to Norm. When Norm asked his grandmother Nanna how they came to Grand Rapids, did you come with a wagon and horses, she said yes, but they were oxen. I remember this conversation, Norm says. Grandma, I told her, you must mean horses. No, she insisted, the wagon with all their possessions was pulled by oxen. She didn’t tell me this, but I suspect that along the way her father would go from house to house and ask for shoe repair business. It boggles my mind –there were so many sisters- she would have been about five years old- how else could they have eaten unless he worked along the way?

Yet Peg Waring lists the birthplace of the fourth through ninth children, from Rudolph/ Ralph (1869) to Selma (1879), as Chicago. If she is correct about this, then any fire that burned out the Glauzes was not the Great Chicago Fire, and they did not reach Grand Rapids for something like another decade. The birthplace of the tenth and final child, Fred (1882), Peg lists as Grand Rapids. This is also Bill Glauz’ understanding of where the children were born and when they moved to Grand Rapids.

The Glauzes settled at the corner of Pettibone and Pine Streets on the West Side. The house was subsequently torn down to make way for the freeway to Holland, Michigan. At some point William became a cement contractor and their business moved to the East Side near Michigan and Fuller Streets where many beautiful new houses were being built in the first years of the 20th Century.

The Glauzes were Catholics according to Lloyd Stoll. Grandpa Glauz was sufficiently good friends with a priest that the two used to go hunting in the woods east of Grand Rapids, reputedly for bear as well as deer. Judging from the stories Norm heard, they went up Michigan Hill, at what was then the end of Michigan Street. William is also reputed to have told his family that, according to the priest, he didn’t believe half the things he told his parishioners. At this point in the story, according to Norm, William’s daughter Nanna and his son-in-law Willie Werner would shake their heads—they both considered themselves cured of the Catholic Church.
Wilhelm Glauz’ children

This compilation begins with Norm and Lloyd Stoll’s recollections, supplemented by Peg Waring’s account and appended with information collected by Roy Glauz of Palo Alto and Bill Glauz of Kansas City.

Matilda (1862-1919) married a butcher named John Quimby (c.1860-1935). They had three daughters and a son named Irving who started a very successful wholesale paper business called the Quimby-Walstrom Paper Company, which apparently still existed in Grand Rapids in 2013. They had four children. Irving Quimby had a daughter named Jane Quimby who attended Grand Rapids Junior College in the 1930s when Norm did –of what became of her, he has no knowledge. My circa 2005 email to a Jane Quimby living in Arizona did not receive a reply.

As for Matilda and John’s daughter Esther Quimby, according to Norm, she was a fancy-looking doll. She married a contractor who built houses, they lived in Chicago and had a Chris-Craft roundabout on Lake Geneva. One day she showed up at our house on Bristol Ave. in her black Packard sedan –a big, expensive car- with her two Pekinese dogs. She had a fur around her neck, rings on her fingers, and was wearing beautiful perfume. We were amazed, we had never seen anyone quite like her. Inside she was sat down in a chair I remember well in the northwest corner of the living room. Our collie Gobs was so impressed that he stuck his muzzle between her knees. I pulled him back. He was completely house-broken, he was a perfectly well-mannered dog, but he was so excited by the perfume, he was dancing around with a smile on his face, that he lifted his leg and peed on one of the legs of the chair. Up comes Norman, pulls him away and locks him on the sun porch. My mother was horrified. The perfume, and the scent of the Pekinese, he could hear them barking in the car and it was too much for him.” Esther and her husband lived in high style in the Chicago suburb of Geneva. Then “Esther’s husband lost everything in the Depression, [apparently the marriage broke up] and she came back to Michigan, to stay with her parents on Valley Avenue. She later married someone back in Grand Rapids, in a very low income bracket. She was used to living high, wide and handsome, but there she was, married to this guy, it must have been quite a come-down, I have no idea how long she lived.

Roy Glauz supplies more complete information on the Quimbys. Mathilde Glauz and John Quimby’s four children were:
Hilda Quimby (1885-c.1955) marries Al Frey (1882-c.1950)
Patricia Frey (1918-) marries Robert Gietzen (1915-)
Robert Frey (1920)
Esther Quimby (c.1888-1950) marries Joe Esters (1885-c.1930), Robert or George Chapman (1885-c.1930) and Bill Cothrell (1890-deceased).
Mildred Quimby (c.1890-1970) marries _____ Burdick (c.1885-1955)
_____ Burdick (c.1918- ) marries Eugene Stuudecker (c.1915-)
Irving Quimby (1893-c.1970) marries ______ Wood (1895-c.1935)
Jane Wood Quimby (1928-)
Irving Quimby (1893) later marries Josephine W. Irvings (1898-c.1975)
John Quimby (b. 1938)
Patricia Quimby (b. 1940)
Robert Quimby (b. 1942)

Clotilda or Clottie (1864-1958) didn't marry until she was sixty years old and had no children of her own. She was a very feisty person, and so difficult to get along with that her father built a small cottage behind the family’s frame house at the corner of Pettibone and Pine Streets, in which Clottie could live. Our best family portrait, taken a few years before Wilhelm’s death, suggests that she was very tall. Her husband was named Chauncey A. Crumback (1858-1938).

Wilhelmina/Minnie/Nanna (1866-1956) married William Werner in Grand Rapids on July 19, 1888. The marriage certificate lists her name as Minnie and lists the name of Willie’s mother as Cezilia Standmeier. The two witnesses are named F. Werner (who is this?) and Anna Scharfenberger/spelling?, who would go on to marry Minnie’s younger brother Rudolph.

Rudolph or Ralph or Rudy (1869-1951) was a furniture craftsman, a lifelong resident of Grand Rapids and also a longtime member of the Fabian Society according to his grand-nephew or grandson? Roy Glauz. He was a highly skilled hand carver but apprenticed as a machine carver at the age of eighteen and worked for the Phoenix Furniture Company and the Robert W. Irwin Company. Roy Glauz adds that Rudy “was very artistic and experimented with various media. A gentle person and quite interested in plants.”
Across the street from (or next to?) the house where Rudy grew up, apparently the one at Pine and Pettibone Streets, was an inn run by his future father-in-law, Grandpa Scharfenberg. He married twice, for the second time with Mathilda Zimmer (1877-1956), but only had children with his first wife Anna Matilda Scharfenberg (1869-1927), who Roy describes as “artistically gifted.” Rudolph and Anna had three daughters (Rhea, Vivian, and Ethel) and two sons (Harold and Roy L.). Of the two sons, Harold died in infancy. Roy became a very successful furniture salesman for one of the manufacturers here in Grand Rapids. Like Matilda and Minnie, Rudy has had many descendants.

Here is a list of Rudy and Anna’s children and grandchildren:
Rhea Mathilda Glauz (1891-1930) marries John L. Jungbaecker (1889-1925)
Dorothy Ann Jungbaecker (Peg Waring) (1915-deceased) marries Worden Waring (1915-)
Barbara Lee Waring (1951-)…..(do the next three names = two spouses and a daughter?)
Vivian Mae Glauz (1893-1965) marries Hugh E. Mullins (1891-1971)
Ethel Glauz (1895-1956) marries George F. Lord (circa 1893-deceased)
….numerous descendants
Harold Glauz (1897-1898)
Roy Lafayette Glauz (1900)
Roy Lafayette Glauz, Jr. (1923) of Palo Alto, California
Robert Glauz (1927) of Davis, California

Bertha (1870-circa 1945) married a schoolteacher named James Vance (circa 1867-1940) and lived with him in Rochester, New York. James Vance was a trombone player, Norm believes in the Rochester Symphony Orchestra, and also taught music. They lived just outside the town of Rochester, owned a small orchard, and had a son named Eric Vance. Living with them outside Rochester was an aunt who was a schoolteacher and taught Eric at home. He was extremely bright and graduated from college with high honors –this according to his proud Aunt Minnie in Grand Rapids. In the summer of 1982, Eric showed up in Grand Rapids to search for his ancestry and inquired at the Grand Rapids Public Library. The library put him in touch with Mrs. Donald Glauz, the mother of Bill Glauz who happened to be visiting from Kansas City. So Eric met with Bill and Barb Glauz for several hours at a motel on 28th Street in Grand Rapids. Judging from an entry on Familysearch.org, Eric Vance was born on January 10, 1904 in New York and died on September 23, 1988.

Laura (1872- ) married a musician, in Lloyd Stoll’s recollection. According to Peg Waring, Laura married a man named Kennette, first name since forgotten, “who deserted her leaving her with an infant daughter Marguerite who was born in 1898. The Glauz family raised Marguerite and she married Earl Eifert, a stockbroker born in 1895. She had four babies all stillborn.” This is interesting information but Peg apparently got Marguerite and Earl’s birthdates wrong.
According to a marriage license located by Kathy Stoll, the 21 year-old Marguerite J. Tognotti married the 24 year-old Earl C. Eifert in Grand Rapids on September 6, 1913. That would mean they were born around 1892 and 1889, respectively. Earl’s occupation is listed as trunk dealer; Marguerite’s occupation is listed as none. Marguerite’s birthplace is Chicago, her father is Fred Tognotti and her mother is Laura Glauz. Earl’s birthplace is Grand Rapids, his father is Paul Eifert and his mother Mary Richman. The witnesses are Rhea Glauz, Rudy’s eldest daughter and Marguerite’s first cousin, and Rhea’s husband John Yungbaker.
Here is what Norm Stoll remembers about Marguerite: “she married a very successful stockbroker named Earl Eifert who made a lot of money fast. He and Marguerite went to Europe, they travelled first class all the way, I heard Marguerite tell this to my grandmother, Earl Eifert was so drunk with his wealth that he would pass out $20 tips in France. They went somewhere in Europe and saw paintings by a relative of the Glauzes named von Fierig.” Norm isn’t sure how the name is spelled, he just remembers how it was pronounced. When he went to Europe a decade later in the late 1930s, he was unable to pin down the name, the artist or his work. As of 2005, Kathy Stoll has tentatively identified the artist as Joseph von Führich, a Habsburg church and court painter (1800-76) from the same town as the Glauzes, Kratzau. We have yet to identify a connection between von Führich and the Glauzes.
On another occasion Norm added: “The father of Earl Eifert owned the Eifert-Giestert (I might have the second “ie” backward) luggage company and was very successful. Earl Eifert was a cracker-jack salesman and made a pile of money selling securities and earning commissions. He had two cars, one of which was a chauffer-driven Cadillac. I remember the chauffeur, a black guy, telling my family that Earl Eifert had small feet and brought expensive French shoes, that cost $20 a pair, and after wearing them for a short while he would give the pair to some Frenchman, probably a guy in the servant area. They also built the most beautiful house overlooking Reeds Lake. Earl would also be approached by people selling him insurance, from one of whom he bought a policy for $4,000, no $3,500.”
“When the ’29 crash came, his wife Marguerite was the smart one, she told him not to invest anymore. Let’s put $100,000 in a government bond that will give us $1500 a year, we can live on that. But he wanted a higher return and he was so confident that the market downturn was temporary that he ignored Marguerite’s warning. We’re going back into the market, he said, and we’re either going to make a killing or we’re going to lose our shirt. He bought on margin, he used up all his credit to buy on margin, and then the market tanked a second time. That’s what did them in. They lost their Cadillac, they lost their chauffeur and their beautiful house overlooking Reeds Lake. The only thing they had left was Marguerite’s car, a Cord Convertible with a silver horn. And in his stuff he found this old policy that had accumulated to $3500-4000. They let out a shriek of joy, this is what they needed for a new start, and they headed for California in that car. Certain items they left behind with Nunna and Grandpa Werner—an end-table, a big picture of a bull and a Buddha. Marguerite went to work as a seamstress for the movie industry.
“Earl didn’t have any special skills, he was about the same age as my father {Earl Stoll], but he went to work as a clerk and they were doing just fine for several years when Marguerite came down with cancer. Quite a few of the Glauz women died of cancer. Earl Eifert worked for Boeing but decided to come back to Grand Rapids to work for the auto industry. When his friends at work didn’t believe his stories about the money he used to spend, he brought out his cancelled checks to show them. When he came back to Grand Rapids he didn’t want much to do with the Glauzes and Werners, maybe he thought that we blamed him for Marguerite’s death.
Norm’s daughter Marilyn Stoll Swanlund remembers the seated Buddha. “Earl and Marguerite drove off to California in Marguerite’s Cord. Before leaving, they brought over several items including the Buddha and a big, ugly painting of a cow [others remember it as a bull] which they had bought over in Paris. Marilyn -maybe they were drunk when they bought it. The Buddha might have been one and a half to two feet tall—Marilyn remembers it as taller, because it fascinated her and she tried to sit in it. It sat in the bay window. She also remembers the willowy lady with the torch that lit up, at the bottom of the staircase, wired through the post on which it sat.

Emil (1874-1959) drove trucks for a living and had no children. But he and his wife Hattie Kuenzel (1875-1961) adopted a boy named Glendon (1907-1979) who had two sons, Eugene Don Glauz (1928- ) and William (1937- ), both of whom married. They and their children and grandchildren still live in western Michigan.

Lydia (1876-1920 Pueblo, CO) married James Smythe Tooher (1868-1959 Pueblo, CO), who continued to visit Grand Rapids after Lydia died. Lloyd Stoll remembers Lydia’s husband as a newspaperman in Pueblo, Colorado, and as a real gentleman when he used to visit his in-laws the Werners. He spoke with the softest voice that Lloyd ever heard, but with authority. Norm Stoll remembers Jim Tooher as a drummer who also played cymbals and the timpani.
James and Lydia’s son James Leslie Tooher (July 23, 1901 Pueblo, CO-March 22, 1990 Schenectady, NY) played football for the University of Colorado and graduated from there with an engineering degree. Interestingly, Norm remembers the son for his wonderful voice: “He was a handsome, stocky guy with whitish-pink skin, dark hair and a wonderful baritone voice. Oh, when he spoke, you looked up. I never heard a voice like that. I remember the second time I saw him, we were over at Don Glauz’ home, and of course Norm and Leslie were cousins. They were talking and I was just listening but, when Leslie would speak, he had a beautiful voice, low and sonorous, he was very interesting to listen to.” Leslie went to work as an engineer for General Electric in Schenectady, New York and spent the rest of his life there. He was also an expert bridge player, held a “master’s” ranking, and travelled to national tournaments. He had two children.
James Leslie Tooher’s son James (August 9, 1931-April 16, 1997) became a sales manager for a big company out east. He married Barbara Mason (1930- ) of Granville, New York. Then he retired and bought a company and ran it with someone else. He and his wife Bobbie lived on an island in or near Savannah, Georgia [possibly Chatham or Village Station]. Norm and his wife Clarise met James and Bobbie at the Registry Hotel in Naples, Florida shortly before he collapsed and died on the tennis court. As of May 2014, Barbara Tooher appeared to be living in Savannah, Georgia but had remarried and was living under the name of Barbara T Schloenbach.

Lydia Glauz (1876) marries James Smythe Tooher (1871)
Leslie Tooher (1901-1990) marries Margaret Lois Marshall (1905-1994 )
James Marshall Tooher (1931-1997) marries Barbara Mason (1930- )
Allison Mason Tooher (1956- )
Judith Stewart Tooher (1959- )
Marjorie Lydia Tooher (1935)

Selma (1879- ) married a man named Lou Mosso, who was the head groundskeeper of Lincoln Park in Chicago. They had two daughters named Gladys (whom Norm and Lloyd remember as “really good-looking”) and Dorothy who have had numerous descendants. Dorothy married a man named Wilson [who died in 1973 according to information that reached Roy Glauz in Palo Alto].

Selma Glauz (1879-circa 1950) marries Lou Mosso (1875-circa 1940)
Gladys Mosso (1907-deceased) marries J. Jamieson (circa 1905) and has ten children.
Dorothy Mosso (1909) marries George Wilson (circa 1905) and has two sons born around 1935 and 1937. Later she marries Al Dellheim (circa 1910).

More on the Mossos from Norm (October 25-26/09) - The father of their in-law Louis Mosso, the caretaker of Lincoln Park in Chicago, was the inventor of an oil which you took with sugar and which was guaranteed to cure everything. Yes, he was a snake-oil salesman. Mosso Oil. Marilyn googles it and comes up with Mosso’s Oil-O-Sol which was advertised in Life Magazine, July 12, 1954. Also Mosso’s Oil-of-Salt, manufactured by C. A. Mosso at 2253 Warren Avenue in Chicago as listed in Nostrums and Quackerey which is on the web in its entirety and ironically quotes the product claims. Norm remembers that Louis Mosso was a portly fellow who was very strong and picked up a big piece of pottery as if it was nothing.

Harry (1882-1949) was an artist who did display and advertising for Herpolsheimer’s Department Store in Grand Rapids and also dabbled in real estate. He and his wife Grace Reynolds (1882-1976) lived on Fulton Street, at the point where Lake Drive splits off, in a house which they subdivided into rental apartments. A block away he bought another house which he subdivided into apartments. And as a skilled craftsman, he not only bought rental units but maintained them. Harry and Grace also subdivided a lakeshore in Glen Arbor, Michigan, just north of Little Glen Lake and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. A hundred yards in from the lake, they had a log cabin built in the mid-1920s where their grandchildren and great-grandchildren still spend summers eighty years later.
Harry and Grace’s daughter Barbara (1906- ) married Russell Case, who became a vice-president of Old Kent Bank in Grand Rapids. Harry’s son Donald Harry Glauz (1908-1980) became an insurance auditor for the Hartford Insurance Company, lived on the south side of Grand Rapids and had an office downtown. He and his wife Eleanor Ruth Brown (1909-1999@) had two children including William Donald Glauz (1933- ), who went to South High School in Grand Rapids, then Michigan State University, and earned a Ph.D in engineering systems at Purdue University. Bill and his wife Barbara Jean Ball (1935- ) live in Leawood, Kansas just west of Kansas City, Missouri where they raised four children born between 1958 and 1969. 
Glauz, Wilhelm (I1582)

William and Elizabeth were married in Malew, Isle of Man. The record in the marriage register there says:
“William Preston and Elizth Williams, both of this parish, were married in this church by license this tenth day of January one thous. eight hundred and four by me…… David Hanson, Vicar.
“This marriage was solemnized between us William Preston (his X) and Elizabeth Preston late Williams (her X) in presence of us…Thomas Corkill and John Bell.” 
Preston, William (I926)

William Tooher married Mary Smythe at the United Lorha-Durrow Roman Catholic Church on 18 Oct 1829. The church is now called St. Ruadhan’s and the current church was built in 1912. Lorha is three miles east of where the Shannon River enters Lough Derg. Lorha is in Co Tipperary and Birr, where William’s wife Mary Smythe was from, is in Kings County. In reality, they’re about 11 miles apart.
William and Mary Smythe Tooher’s daughter Bridget was baptized at the same church on 18 Sep 1830. On Bridget’s baptismal record it says the family lived at “Lambpark.” Lambpark was a tiny area in the sub-townland of Attyfarrell/Allyfarrell, in the civil parish of Terryglass. A professional genealogist said that’s “Bredagh” today. A son, John, was born on 22 Apr 1834.
It appears that the family moved closer to Birr, where Mary’s family was from, because William is found in Griffith’s Valuation taken sometime between 1848-1864 as living in Killeen, Parish of Loughkeen, Co. Tipperary (p. 102) on the land of the Earl of Rosse. In King’s County (Offaly), which is very nearby, 37,609 people died or emigrated between 1845-1851, a 24% decrease in population. Tipperary had three times the people, and 136,941 died or emigrated from there during the period. Killeen is a townland in the civil parish of Borrisokane, in the Barony of Ormond Lower, County Tipperary, Ireland. It is one of eight townlands in County Tipperary sharing the name Killeen.
The Toohers emigrated to Canada to escape the Potato Famine, no doubt. They must have left Ireland between 1848 (the date of Griffith’s) and 1855 (the date daughter Mary Tooher married Patrick Finn in London, Ontario). It’s unknown if William died in Ireland before they left of famine or another cause, died on the ship coming over, or later died somewhere in Ontario or en route.
From an on-line source: “The Passenger Act of 1847 granted each [eligible] emigrant ten cubic feet and a supply of food and water. Realistically captains didn't obey this act and many people starved or died of disease in cramped quarters aboard the emigrant ships. An estimated one and one-half million Irish emigrated from 1845 to 1851, upwards of 20-45% dying in the "coffin ships" on their journey or shortly after their arrival in their new home.”

In the 1861 Canadian Census, there is a William Tuer, 60; Mary Tuer, 50; Elizabeth, 25; Mary, 23; William, 21; Joseph, 18; Sarah, 12; and Margaret, 9. William the father is a farmer and everyone in the family was born in England. This family fits the Tooher profile only in the names of the parents; the children’s names are wrong as are their births in England. 
Tooher, William (I1157)

William “Billy” was born about the first of October, 1850 and was baptized on 14 Oct at St. Andrew’s Church in Grand Rapids. His godparents were Ed Fenissy and his aunt, Maria Lynch O’Brien. On his baptismal record, William’s mother Bridget listed that she was from “Doonahan” in Ireland.

In 1998, Mary Reynolds Bek wrote to her third cousin, Jim Rooney: “I remember Billy Cummings. He was quite sick and I remember going to his funeral. Billy had two daughters that I knew, Josie Cummings Snyder and Nellie Cummings, both teachers; they were good friends of my mother’s [Helen Tennis Reynolds]. Nellie never married and had a wonderful sense of humor.” I am not sure how they fit into the names of the three girls I have assigned here to William and Delia. 
Cummings, William (I1336)

William’s wife and newborn twins died in childbirth. Willliam never remarried, but his sister Julia lived with him. She moved from Co. Cork to live with him in 1867 or 1868, probably right after his husband and the twins died.

William died in June 1920. His obituary in the Erie Daily Times of June 21, 1920, page 2, read: “Death William Leonard. William Leonard, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of the Fourth ward, died early Sunday morning, following an illness of four days. Deceased was one of the pioneer settlers of the city and for many years he lived at Second and Liberty, where he was always held in the higest esteem. Surviving are a sister, Mrs. Margaret Rowen, and one brother, Michael Leonard, both of this city. Funeral services will be held from the residence of his sister, Mrs. margaret Rowen, 959 West Ninth street, Wednesday morning at 7:30 and from St. Andrew’s church at 8 o’clock. Interment will be held at Trinity cemetery.”
William bought a burial plot for the family in Trinity Cemetery in Section F, Lot 18. There is a large monument on the plot that says “Leonard.” William is buried there, along with his mother Julia and his sister Julia “Jule.” There is no record of his father Michael being buried there. 
Leonard, William (I627)

The section he is buried in is U8. The parish he was born should be spelled Harrietsham, Kent Co., England.

“OBITUARY. Mrs. Mary A. Finn. Mrs. Mary A. Finn, widow of Patrick Finn, died at her home, No. 67 Carrier street at 2:30 o’clock Friday morning., aged 70 years. The deceased was one of the oldest residents of the Fifth ward, having settled there nearly 50 years ago, when that now thickly populated part of the city was almost a wilderness. It has been said that her whole life was a sweet lesson of motherhood and she died with a cheery word to those she left behind. The deceased was born in Tipperary Ireland, but came to this country when a child. She was married to Patrick Finn 51 years ago in London, Ontario and subsequently journeyed with her husband to Grand Haven, Mich., at the time the old Detroit & Milwaukee railroad was extended to that village. Patrick Finn established the first hotel in Grand Haven, on the north side of the river, now given over to sand dunes. Shortly afterwards the couple moved to this city and Patrick Finn became proprietor of the old Union hotel (now the Parnell house) at the D&M depot. He retired from business about 20 years ago and passed from life 12 years later. Mrs. Finn is survived by eight children, five daughters and three sons. One daughter is a religious of the Dominican order; the Misses Alice and Nellie are teachers in the Plainfield Ave. and East Leonard Street schools, respectively, and Mrs. E.J. Damskey is a resident of Houston, Texas. The sons are Patrick, Michael and John, the last a well-known newspaper man, being now general press manager for the Keith-Proctor circuit of theaters. The funeral will be held from St. Alphonsus church Monday at 10:30 a.m., with a solemn high mass of requiem.”
