Re: Waskey - VA, MD, PA, GA
Ms. Fowler, we spoke several years ago and during that time the search for my WASKEY/WASCHKE family.Within the past month I found the following web site that made that connection for me.
Please check www.megspace.com/family/achsah2
I also found the following biographies at www.megspace.com/family/achsah2/uvwxyz.html:
Waskey, Alexander the fourth living son of the above subject, was born within one mile of the natural bridge, in Virginia, August 8, 1843, and was therefore but twelve years old when he arrived in Wabasha county. He was reared on the home farm, and on reaching his majority traveled over many different states. Tiring of a wandering life, he returned, June, 1877, to this locality. May 19, 1878, he was united in marriage to Miss Almira Harrison, daughter of Henry and Maggie Harrison, of Zumbro township. Two children have been given to Mr. And Mrs. Waskey, thus: Edward Alexander, June 6, 1881; Gussie, July 17, 1883. Mr. Waskey is now settled on a farm in Zumbro and is prospering.
Waskey, William (deceased) was among the pioneers of Chester township, where he died in 1872. In May, 1855, he located on section 32, on which the remainder of his life was passed. The youngest of his living children, Margaret V. (now Mrs. James Bennett), resides on the latter farm, which she received by inheritance. Mr. Waskey was a native of Maryland, and married Harriet Goodwin, of Virginia. While on an Ohio river steamer, moving west, Mrs. Waskey died, and was buried at Covington, Kentucky. The eldest daughter, Mary J., died in Illinois. Two sons, Joseph and William, died here. The eldest living, Sarah, dwells in Missouri. George S. is at Sioux Falls, Dakota, and James M. in Dixon county, Tennessee.
The above identified Sarah living in Missouri is my Sarah.Any information related to her would be appreciated.
