Am looking for more info on this family line.1900 Colfax County Nebraska (Midland Township) has James E. and Katie Egan, ages 26 and 27, although I think the 27 is supposed to be a 29.James is listed as born in Illinois and his parents were from Ireland.Katie is listed as born in Wisconsin, parents both from Germany.
1920 Adams County Colorado (Box Elder Township) lists James E., age 46, born in Illinois, parents from Ireland, Kate, age 49, born in Wisconsin, parents from Germany, and sons John (17), James Jr. (12), Loyd? (10) and Roland (9)......all born in Nebraska.
In the 1900 Nebraska census, James and Katie (and I know that Katie was an Immel because I found a marriage listing for them) were listed right after John and Clara Immel.I assume this means they lived next door or very nearby.Am really trying to put small pieces of a big puzzle together.
There is a probate file which I have sent for, with Katherine Thompson, Jacob Immel and Katie Egan all associated with it.Hope it helps unravel the mystery.Any additional information is appreciated. Thanks.
