we show a lot of MINER descendants of the Waupaca Co WI family from 1860 onward
This tree is an offshoot of a ca 2008 Newby family of Portage Co WI tree by me, Forsythe,
and by Myron M Felckowski of Stevens Point Wis
He has over 100,000 similar central Wisconsin historical family members posted athttp://www.bigalke.biz/myronfelckowski/index.php
It turned out that a lot of those Newby people descended from Fidalia Miner (1843 NY-1917 WI)
daughter of Joel H Miner and Mary Nancy Gowan who were on 1850 US census in Allegany Co NY
but by 1860 they were on Waupaca Co WI US census. We didn’t compile Fidalia with correct maiden name
originally in 2008; so we’re doing her justice now.
We just compile vast family trees related to Portage Co WI, but there are actually a couple remote personal connections:
Mr. Felckoswki’s sister may have married into the Newby family who do descend from
Fidalia Miner. And my wife Kay Scribner Forsythe has a paternal grandma’s sister Annie Precourt who married
a Newby, but as I recall, not of the Newby branch descending from Fidalia MINER.
