I was wondering if tied in with Major ER Kearsley, you have any Moderwells?I have several newspaper tidbits from Bucyrus, Ohio in 1888 that state my Moderwells, who had moved away from Crawford County, Ohio to Geneseo, IL, had came back to Crawford for a visit, and they were staying with Major ER Kearsley and wife.
