Hi, looking for probate info on above person. In the Monroe Sentinel, 11-12-1851 it states:
Probate Notice - Josiah Squires lately deceased, appointment of GW Adams, adminstrator.

GW Adams is probably Josiah's son in law. I am hoping Josiah's children might be named.

The attached estate paper is hard to read but the short version is that George Washington Adams is next of kin and that he is a son-in-law, Josiah owned property in Green Co., WI and that Josiah died on May 16, 1857 at Bureau Co., IL.

Do any of you all have data pertaining to Clemon Christopher Squire, son of Josiah Squire and Lucinda Martin Squire. I am particulary interested in Josiah Squire's parantage. The following is a brief report of the data that I have. Ancestors of Josiah Squire Generation No. 1 1. Josiah Squire, born January 22, 1765 in Vermont; died May 1851 in Near Sheffield, Bureau Co., Illinois. He was the son of 2. Squire. He married (1) Lucinda Martin. She was the daughter of Isaac Martin and Lois Ives. Notes for Josiah Squire: Born in Vermont, moved to Steuben County New York C. 1790, with wife Lucinda Martin. Moved to Ohio about 1810 and then to Tiskilwa, Ill. He was shown on the 1850 census with his son, Clemon, in Benton County Arkansas. He died , near Shefield Ill., at the home of his son George. (I suspect that they came to Illinois about 1838.) Notes for Lucinda Martin: According to Past and Present of Bureau County, Page 807, printed in 1906, Lucinda died in Ohio. It states that she was born in Vermont. Information recieved from Leon Stiles, Pen Yan New York gives her birthdate and parents as Issac Martin and Lois Ives Martin. Lucinda actually grew up in Vermont, but was born in Wallingford, New Haven Connecticut. Her parents and grandparents miagrated to Vermont about 1773. Lucinda and Josiah Squire probably met and married in Vermont before moving on to New York with her father and his second wife, Sarah. Children of Josiah Squire and Lucinda Martin are: 1. Elizabeth Squire, born in Steuben County. ii. Hiram Squire, born in Steuben County, New York iii.Permelia Squire, born in Steuben County, New York. iv.

Notes for Squire: ACCORDING TO BUREAU COUNTY HISTORY BOOK, THE FATHER OF JOSIAH SQUIRE WAS AN ENGLISH SHIPS CAPTAIN, BORN IN ENGLAND ABOUT 1735, AND SETTLED IN VERMONT PRIOR TO JOSIAH'S BIRTH IN 1765. This stands to be proven. Have no evidence to prove it. Child of Squire is: i.Josiah Squire, born January 22, 1765 in Vermont; died May 1851 in Near Sheffield, Bureau Co., Illinois; married Lucinda Martin. Thank you, Lucy Ann Moore

Hi, and thank you. I had hoped to find something that would prove or disprove that my ancestor was a daughter of Josiah and Lucinda.

Every puzzle piece helps. Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to help me.
