Dear Kristina,
Thanks for the response. I'm excited, too. There are lots of clues in the data you sent for us to follow up on. Do you happen to know if Elizabeth and William married in IN? If so, do you know what county? Their names do not appear in the database I searched. If I knew where they married, this might tell us where some of the sisters and brothers of Elizabeth married. The message seems to indicate that Clagstone is a town and Harlem is a county in Idaho, but my atlas doesn't show either. Could you clarify this? I'd like to review the census records, but I need to know the county and preferably the township. Also, you say that Phoeba was born in Spokane, Pleasant Prairie, WA. Is the town Pleasant Prairie and Spokane the county or is Pleasant Prairie part of the city of Spokane? I found the town of Deer Park in Spokane Co., but what is Wild Rose Prairie? Also, do you happen to know what cemetery in Spirit Lake the McDaniels are buried in? Oh, yes, I also wanted to ask about the birthplace of Emery Clark. You list it as Bradford, Clark, IL. If Bradford was the name of the town, then is it possible that the county was Stark rather than Clark? Stark Co. is near Peoria; Clark Co. is on the IL-IN border just west of Terre Haute, IN. There were some other Kingens in Stark Co., IL who were descendants of James Kingen's deceased brother John (I think John died in the Civil War). There are also some Kingens whose descendants remained in that area that I can't yet identify. Something you might want to check is the 1920 census, Whatcom Co., WA Bellingham Twp. (sorry, I don't have the page number). The entry shows a John B. Kingen age 44 b. IN with father b. IN mother b. OH (I think he was a bootblack). I think this was Elizabeth's brother. John is identified as brother-in-law. The other residents in the household are a family named Fish (Edward age 48, b. Canada both parents b. England, he was a bookbinder). His wife was Edna E. age 39 b. IN father b. IN mother b. OH. They have 3 children: Helen, Darlene, and Geraldine, but the age spread looks odd, so perhaps this was not Edward's first marriage. I'm reasonably certain that this Edna was Elizabeth's sister. Looking forward to hearing from you and your aunt!
