|I am researching my own family tree and also my wifes. Our main family surnames are Young, DeRosier, Ryan and Leckband. |
My wife's great grandparents Michael Foley Ryan & Helen Chase are as far as I can get on that branch. Their son Clement A Ryan married Helen McCarthy, daughter of John & Margaret McCarthy. Another dead end at this point. My wife's mothers side has an extensive history on her father's mother's side. The family published "Glade Family History" was quite a find and traces back to Frederick Glade born 1836 in Cohlenfeld, Hanover, Germany. My wife's mother's father's father's side - Leckband, only goes back to William who married Wilhelmina Glade of Brunswick Indiana.
On my side we are looking for ancestors of George Washington Young, married to Julia Clarissa Youngs. George's father is Jesse Young ? married to Martha Young. My grandmother's side were Kraklau and Holsapple. The Kraklau's go back to August Anton Kraklau born Aug 24, 1840 in Germany. Died Jan 11 1911. The Holsapple side goes back to James W. Holsapple and Flora Minerva Crosland.
