In 1850 (Scott, Wayne, Pennsylvania) Laborers George Quigley, 50, born Massachusetts, and George Quigley, 19, born Massachusetts, share a household with Laborer Murdock Andross, 28, born New York, Sarah Andross, 22, born Massachusetts, and Nancy Andross, 4, born Pennsylvania.
In 1860 Carpenter Murdick "Andrews" and Sally and their children are on page 26 of 39 in the Fulton, Whiteside, Illinois Census; the four oldest children were born in Pennsylvania from 1847-1856; Nora was born in Wisconsin in 1858.[Sally's brother] Geo W. Quigly, a Day Laborer, and Cordelia and children are on page 1 of 39.Martha J Quigly and Wm Quigly were born in Wisconsin in 1858-1859.[Note: I believe the George Quigley in Alton, Madison, Ill in 1865 is a different George - see below.]
In 1864 the Murdick Andress and George W. Quigley families were in Antrim County, Michigan, where they were baptised by Reuben T. Nichols (and there is another story about that attached to them).
In 1869 Murdick Andress made a cash entry land purchase--and George W. Quigley proved a homestead claim--in Section 6, T31 N, R8W, Antrim County, Michigan (see property entries).
Then paths diverge.The Andress family apparently moves on to Davenport Iowa/Rock Island Illinois--I'm still working on that part.The Quigleys remain in northern Michigan.
