Subject: Gideon and Laura Searl
Date: Monday, December 11, 2000
Surnames: Searl, Starr
I am looking for information on the family of Gideon and Laura (Starr) Searl. They settled in St. Peter, Nicollett co., MN between 1858 and 1864. Their son, my great-great grandfather, was Frank G. Searl who was born Sept. 8, 1868 in St. Peter. They had moved to MN from Cattaraugus co., NY and returned there by 1872. Gideon had 7 siblings, of which I only know the names of 3: Alonzo, Amy, and Steven. I suspect that some of Gideon's siblings may have moved to MN about the same time. If any one knows of any information on this family I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
