My previous message stating that David Claudy came from Nathan City, IA is incorrect. I misunderstood my mother. He did come from Mason City, Iowa. He died around 1912. My mother believes he died of a bad cold or pneumonia.

Hi Sharon - I just found something that completely baffles me. It is a WW I draft registration for a John Claudy of Minneapolis, MN. He says he was born June 11, 1880 (doesn't say where). He is working as a laborer in Mpls, MN. The part that surprised me - he has listed as his nearest relative - Mrs. Mary Claudy of Chippewa Falls, WI.
He could be a son of Mary by a former marriage and took the Claudy name, but as David Claudy and Mary Baker didn't marry until about 1892, I am assuming he is not David's son. Can you shed any light on this? I would certainly appreciate any help you can give me. Sincerely, Malinda German

Hi- My maiden name is Claudy and I am doing research on my dad's side of the family. This is some of the information I have, and I carry it back to this generation, but I'm not positive that we are all talking about the same David Claudy, but there is a lot of interesting simularity. This is the information I have on David Claudy. If you need more informtion let me know?

David Albert Claudy; b. 12-1-1867 in Magrega, Iowa;
d. 1-12-1910,
Married: Mary Jane Barkley; b. 5-4-1865 in Auburn, Iowa; d. 5-15-1922 in Eagleton WI. (6 children)

Hi Tonya, I have a feeling we are speaking of the same people, although the birth dates are a bit off. I have four children born to David and Mary Claudy: Guy b. 1892, George b. 1893, Delos b. 1898, and Della who married Raymond Witkus was b. 1901. If you recognize anyone here, I would like to hear from you. I have David's siblings and parents. I do not have anything more on Mary. I will be happy to share what I have.

Hi Marlinda- Yes I think we are talking about the same people. My research is that David and Mary had 6 children. I have to run to the Art Museum right now, so I will email you later tonight. I Don't have any information later than Dave and Mary, but I do on their children. I would love to get your information about Davids siblings and parents. How are you related to David Claudy?

HI Malinda- WOW, this is amazing. That would make us fourth cousins?? Can I ask where you live?
How much information do you want? Do you want everything that I have on David's family?
Well let me start with this information about David and Mary's children, then if you want more; like the grandchildren and so forth, just let me know and I will give you whatever I have about the family so far. But there are some holes that I am working on filling. This has been an ongoing process for me. I'm sure you know what I mean. :) Please send me information on Daivid's family and parents. Also, I would like to know about your (Daniel) family tree.

Hi Sharon- Della (Claudy) Witkus is the sister to my Grandfather Guy A. Claudy. He lived most of his life around the Eau Claire, WI area. That makes us second cousins, (I think)? I will give you a little information about me. I was born in Rockford, Illinois in 1959. My dad's name was Vern O. Claudy. I started doing this research about 5 years ago. I too, find it hard to get time to research, most of what I have came from family Bibles, and talking to relatives.

Also, most of my information is on Guy's family tree. Would you like all the information I have? For now, here is the information I got on Guy's parents, brothers and sisters.

Parents of David Albert Claudy:
Father: David Claudy; b. 1821 Cumberland Country, PA, died 1862 is buried in Irishtown Cem, Newville, PA., (Family bible says he was son of David & Betty)
Mother: Mary (Henry) Claudy; married abt 1849; (5 children)
Brothers: William Claudy, Daniel Claudy, and George Claudy
Sisters: Miss Lizzie, and Mrs. Mary Dow of Plankington SD.

Obituary - The North Iowa Times - McGregor, IA
David Claudy was born in Cumberland County, Penn. Dec. 1st, 1858. In early boyhood he came to Clayton County with his mother, brothers and sisters, this being his home until 1892, since that time his home has been in Wisconsin, until about two years ago. He moved his family to Mason City, at which place departed this life on Jan. 28th. He leaves to mourn his death, a wife and four children, a step-daughter, Mrs. Emma McCann of Chippewa Falls, Wis., two brothers, Daniel and William, and a sister, Miss Lizzie, all of this place and a sister, Mrs. Mary Dow, of Plankington S.D. It was the deceased’s wish that his remains be brought to his old home for burial, and he was accordingly brought to McGregor; the funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at the home of his brother, William, which was also the old home-stead, and he was laid to rest beside his mother in Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

Here is some additonal information I have. Mary Jane's last name was Barker. David Witkus was her third marriage. Nellie and Emma were from the two previous marriages. I believe Nellies last name was Buckland. I can find out Emma's.

Emma and Peter Mc Cann only had four children together. Their names were Herb, Howard, Dale and Jaunita. The other children must have been Peter McCann's from a previous marriage. Neil Mc Cann, whom Emma married after Peter died, was acutally her stepson according to my aunt.

Della' s middle name is Viola and she was born on 11/22/1901 not 1902 at 4:30 PM in Yellow River, town of Coburn in Chippewa County Wisconsin. She died on 7/21/1945 at 3:45 AM in Jim Falls, Wisconsin. She had rhuematic fever as a child leaving her with a weak heart. Raymond & Della were married on 1/4/1919.

If you need more information on the Witkus line, I can get to anyone who is interested.
