Surnames: Earhart, McAdoo
I am a researcher in the McAdoo surname looking for information on William "Ollie" Earhart who married Nancy Violet McAdoo. Nancy was born 31 May 1867 in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, but I have no marriage date or place and no dates and places of death for this couple.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated, and I would be happy to share any information I have.

Just rechecking posted messages. These are my kin, have you gotten anything on them? Most of my line remains a mystery, soo frustrating.
Let me know.
Thank You.

I was trying to figure out the first name of the Earhart that married Nancy Violet McAdoo who is my Great Great Grandmother and came accross your post. I would have asked my mother, but she is out of town. So I started researching and found your post. Nancy Violet Earhart was the mother of my Great Grandmother Marjorie "Madge" Earhart-Pepple. My Great Uncle Wm. Bill Pepple of Sullivan Indiana, who is my Grandmother's youngest brother may have some information. The other option for information would be my Great Aunt Kay, from Casper Wy; however, I wont' have an email address until my mother returns. Unfortunately my Grandmother Beatrice Pepple Thompson passed away last summer at the age of 90. I know we do have a picture of Nancy McAdoo as a toddler. I hope this is the McAdoo you are looking for. Sheri

Sheril --

Let me know when you get more information. In the meantime, can you give me a list of Nancy Violet's children and their spouses?

When my mother returns from her trip, I will see what I can find out for you. I think my Aunt Kay may have some information; however, I don't have her contact information, my mother Susan does. My mother talks with my Uncle Bill's wife often and I will have her see what William Pepple remember's of their grandmother Nancy.

Thank you for all the great information, Sheril! I have added it to my database. Do you have the exact dates of birth and death for Charlotte Wagner? I show her as being born 'abt. 1850,' which is four years difference from you. Unfortunately, I didn't document where I got that information, so I don't know how much to believe it.

If you find out more info, please keep me informed. I just love filling in those boxes in Family Tree Maker.

Birth I have as about 1846 per 1880 and 1910 Census. The death I show is Dec 13, 1937 in Bridgeport, Lawerence, IL. I will be picking up some family geneology information from my mother that was given to her by her Great Aunt Audrey and will check the dates on that as well. I haven't scanned any pictures yet, but we do have some of Grandmother Nancy Earhart. I will keep you in mind and send you a picture.
