In Reply to: Frederick R. And Emma Jane Donihoo by John W. Ball of 14

I am a Donihoo Family researcher and can fill you in on Fred and some on Jenny. Frederick Jay R. Donihoo was born 17 Aug. 1850 in Northfield, Cook Co., Illinois, to Joseph A. W. Donihoo & Lydia Redfern Adams. Lydia's father Joseph Adams was one of the earliest settlers of what is now Chicago. Joseph Donihoo was born in Rockbridge Co., Virginia, to John Donihoo and Martha Walker, who became abolitionists and migrated to St. Clair Co. Michigan in 1835. Fred died 26 Oct 1929 in Chicago. He and Emma Jane "Jenny" Ball were the parents of 3 children, Walter, Clara and Mabel. Walter migrated to St. Louis and married Margaret Brueggemann. He has descendants today. Clara and Mabel never married. Jenny's parents were George Ball of England, and Ann Blake. Jenny was born 19 Nov. 1855 in Valley Forge, Carter Co., Tenn. She died in Chicago 25 July 1923. Jenny and Fred are buried in Acacia Park (Masonic) Cemetery in Chicago. I have visited their graves. If you would like more info, you may reach me at; I have also posted my information on rootsweb Worldconnect. I have pics of Fred and Jenny - e-mail me please.
