GROOMS, Thomas-Suzannah-Essie Tue Jan 02, 2007
I'm looking for any info on Thomas C. and Suzannah (Anna) Grooms and their daughter Essie. They lived in this area from around 1876, when they were married in Elk Co. Essie married a George Kuhn in 1893 then Charles Lamb in 1898. I don't know what the circumstances were in her first marriage. Her and Charles had 4 children and ended up living in Oklahoma. I found that the Grooms, owed land in Cedar Vale. Thomas is buried in the Cedar Vale Cemetery and died in 1892. His wife Anna was 20 years younger than him and wasn't found there. I found something from a newspaper that said he got hurt some how helping someone on the indian reservation and died not long afterwards. I would like to find out about their families. Please contact me, or if anyone has a web site that could help. Thank you for your time.

SHIRK/SHERK, Louisa Fri Jan 05, 2007
I'm looking for any info on the Shirk/Sherk family, but especially info for Louisa Barbara Keckley Shirk. I have a feeling she is buried in the Monet (Riley Memorial) Cemetery. She was married to Samuel G. Shirk and was mother to Minnie Shirk Mobley. I found her listed in the 1880 census of Chautauqua County but nowhere else. Samuel G. is my father's (Sam Mobley) grandfather. Help!
