Looking for descendants of above surnames for comparison of notes and colaberation of efforts. These people were in the St. Clair area from 1850 on. Most were farmers, nobody of great wealth except perhaps on the MUDGE line--who were doctors. Would love to find some more new cousins.

I am a descendant of Hyram (Hiram) Darling or Jacob Darling, who came from England to Canada and thence to Michigan, settling eventually around Three Rivers, Mi. in St. Joseph County, and also Cass County. I believe they initially settled around Kent County. Would be interested in any information you would be willing to share and I will share all I have. Thanks.

LUBY surname

Surnames: LUBY
My great grandfather, Michael Looby, came to this country from Roscommon just before 1850. He settled in Roxbury, MA.
One of his sons (John), my grandfather, was born in 1867 - born a "Looby" and died a "Luby." Although Luby/Looby/Louby/etc is spelled about 14 different ways, I've never been able to locate any of Michael Looby's brothers or sisters. I think, based on considerable reasearch, that he did have a brother (Thomas) who joined the 2nd Irish Brigade along with Michael in 1862. Thomas was killed in the 2nd Battle of Bull Run. Michael survived the war but just barely - he was shot twice and was also a prisoner twice. He got out of the Army (Federal) about four months after Lincoln was killed and lived to his 70's. I have many of his original records including his diary of the time he spent in Libby Prison (short period of time - he was enlisted) and then latter in South Carolina. I also have several letters, his discharge and a few other original papers. I also have numerous Army records which are quite interesting.

Most of Michael relatives have settled in the New England area.

Seeking ancestors or siblings of Edward W. HILL, farmer, who married Faney (Fannie) Edith PARKER of Algonac, MI in the late 19th c. I don't know if they had children.

She was the daughter of Frederick and Ann (WELLS) PARKER of Algonac, MI. They had come from Boston, England in March 1852. There is a biographical sketch of him and his family posted under ST. Clair Co,MI bios on the rootsweb site.
