Choteau Paul

May 24, 2008 - Leave a Response

Choteau W. Paul was born in Nebraska in 1869, but his father Henry Wells Paul died as a result of an accident with a machine at an agricultural rade show 10 years later, in Chico, California. Choteau and his mother (Helen Dweller) were living with her father in Ft. Dodge, Iowa in 1880. I have recently fould Choteau in the 1910 census — he was a civil engineer for the Northern Pacific Railroad, and was listed twice that year, in different rooming houses (in Billings and Livingston, Montana — both sites of significant rail activity at the time). He was foreman of a corners jury in Los Angeles in 1947, and died there in 1962.

He’d been married for 3 years in 1910, but I don’t know anything more about that.

Clark of New Bedford, Mass. and Brooklyn, New York

March 11, 2007 - Leave a Response

Alonzo P. Clark was born in New Bedford about 1849, and his brother James H. Clark was born there in about 1853. In 1870, both were living in Brooklyn with their mother, Rachel Mosher Clark.

There was an Alonzo P. Clarke in Brooklyn in the 1880s, a gun salesman of some kind. He was in the 1880 census as A.P. Clarke, with wife Jennie — born in Canada — and son A.P. Jr., born in Massachusetts. This looks like a match, but I’ll have to keep looking.

It’s possible that James went to Montana. More on that later.

Gloag of Muthill & Crieff

February 27, 2007 - One Response

I’m looking for several children of George Gloag and Elizabeth Douglas. Specifically, Janet Gloag, born 4 May 1875 Muthill; George Gloag, born 27 Jan 1877 Crieff; Elizabeth Jane Gloag, born 27 Oct 1878 Crieff; William Gloag, born 25 May 1881 Crieff; Robert Galloway Gloag, born 21 Jul 1883 Crieff; Peter Gloag, born 26 Jan 1886 Muthill (he may have had a son Douglas Gloag); and Helen Gloag, born 1 May 1888 Muthill.

The family was living in Edinburgh at the time of the 1901 census. I think I may have found George Sr., along with Janet, Helen, and Peter, in South Melbourne, Australia, in 1914. I’m not sure of that, though . . .
