I am doing research on the Stimers line. For a long time we had no clues as to the identity of the parents of Lourah Jane Stimers. Lourah was b. in abt 1854 in Dodge Co., Wisc. She married a Charles DeWitt Temple, a Mr. Green, and a Mr. Cady. A cousin had learned, thru research that the fathers name was Robert Stimers. I began looking thru census records and found Lourah with her parents in Dodge Co. Yes, he was Robert, b. in abt 1817 and his wife was Arvilla, b. in abt 1824.
They were both born in Canada. Doing a search of "Stimers"
thru a search engine I came across the Stimers Family Tree.
They mention Robert C. Stimers married to Arvilla Mudgrage.
[I noticed that one of you on this board used the spelling Mudridge.] I cannot tie Charles, b. in abt. 1848 to this family.
However, other children of this same family were living in Howard Co, Iowa at the same time as Charles. The names I have for some of Charles children do not match other sources.
I hope that others will come by and pick up the discussion.
