Am looking for any information on the 12 Schoolcraft girls born to David Nelson & Martha McClain Schoolcraft in Pleasant Vale Township. 4 of the girls died in infancy. The remaining girls were Lillie Schoolcraft Clinging, Clara Schoolcraft Wilson, Bertha Schoolcraft McNary, Sarah Schoolcraft Roberts, Geneva Schoolcraft Beauman, Lena Schoolcraft Turner, Minnine Schoolcraft Smith, Lela Schoolcraft Havens. They all lived in the New Canton/ElDara/Barry/Kinderhook area except Geneva who moved to Michigan & Clara who moved to Missouri. Any information would be very helpful. Thanks.

My father's Aunt Geneva was Mary Geneva Schoolcraft. She was born 5/3(23?)/1893 in New Canton, IL, married Warren Beauman 10/17/1912 in Pittsfield, IL, and died 2/7/1964. That's all the information I have for now.

Hi! My line is from Susan Welch Schoolcraft's brother, David Welch, and I would be interested in a copy of Lillie Schoolcraft's obit. Thanks.

I found a death certificate for Clara. She died March 27 1951 in Hanibal, Marion Co., Missouri of a coronary thrombosis. She was married to a Barney Wilson and was listed as 69 with a date of birth as Oct 17 1881. She was born in New Canton and her father was Nelson Schoolcraft. Her mother is not listed. She lived at 2700 Market St and died at home. Her husband was still living. She was buriedMarch 29 1951 at Hydesburg Cemetery in Hydesburg, Ralls Co., Missouri.
Her husband Barney died in Hannibal on April 9 1959 at Elizabeth Hospital of terminal pneumonia and congestive heart failure. He was listed as a widow X2 so maybe he was married before Clara. He was 84, a bit older than her,,,he was born Nov 7 1863 in Kinderhook to Martha and James A Wilson. He was a retired blacksmith. he apparently lived with a son, George Wilson at the time of his death at 2001 Grace Street in Hannibal. He was buried April 10 1958 ib Hydesburg Cemetery also.
Missouri death certificates are online and a great resource. I hope this helps a little.

I saw the graves of Geneva, Warren, and their son Lilburn Beauman today. They are buried in Woodland Cemetery in Monroe, MI. Hope this helps.

I found an article in the 10/19/1912 Quincy Daily Journal concerning the giving of marriage licenses. One of the receiving couples was " Warren Beauman, Pittsfield, and Miss Eva Schoolcraft, of El Dara;"
