Hi Laura,

Ira Furnald sure is hard to track,

I think I found him in 1900 living in Bad Bluff, Henderson, Illinois. He is age 70 and apparently remarried abt 1883 to Nancy J. age 65. He is living next to William Cattison age 66. The census has Ira's birthdate as Oct 1829. Ira and Nancy have a daughter Clara A. born Dec 1885.
Henderson county is where Mary and Ira were married in 1854.
I still can't locate him in 1850 but will keep trying.

FURNALD, FRED CASTEEL, ADALINE MAY 11/01/1898
FURNALD, GEORGE N HALL, SUSIE BEATRICE 10/17/1893 FURNALD, IRA CATTERSON, MARY M 12/04/1854 FURNALD, MARSHALL FERRELL, SARAH 09/27/1866 FURNALD, WALTER RYASON, MAUDE ALMA 01/20/1896


I saw a land grant for a Mark Furnald in Illinois for his service in 1812. But no Marks appear in the census for Illinois prior to 1850. There are 2 Marks in Kittery in 1810 and 1820. Too bad we don't have Ira's middle name.

Bob
