These are leaves and branches of our Family Tree. We hope to leave a visable paper trail that our Grandchildren and descendants will be able to trace their roots. Someone commented that we have so many crossed lines; We don't have a "Family Tree"; we have a Wreath!

History of Clunette by George A. Nye in 1929
It was sometime after the war that Hiram Boggess conducted a store at North Galveston on the west side of the street, some distance south of the cross-roads.
Boggess was known as a rather eccentric old gentleman who hailed from the vicinity of Leesburg. From current reports his store was a desirable place to trade, but his methods would scarcely bear the inspection of the pure food commissioners of today. This was true, to some extent, of all stores of sixty years ago, when no screens were used and the hitch racks faced the front door.
Mr. Boggess, like many of the villagers, did not bother about wearing any shoes except when on dress parade. Sitting out in front of his store on a summer's day barefooted, or working around his old blacksmith's shop, he was a village fixture known to every one who passed his way.
At times, he is said to have lost his religion. Especially was this true when on one occasion a billy goat upset Mr. Boggess and spilled onto the barn yard ground the entire contents of a bucket of corn he was carrying. Just where the goat struck him was always a matter of debate, but as it could hardly have been in the stomach it must have been in the vice versa.
With all his shortcomings he was known as a good old gentleman who was willing to lend a hand whenever the exigencies of the case demanded it.
His first wife (Jane Chambers) is remembered as a miracle worker. She was one of those few gifted people who had the power to cure boils, bunions, and corns by placing her hands upon the affected parts and chanting the mystic rhymes which brought the divine cure from on high.
Boggess's store was a two storied frame building which sat near the present site of the old brick schoolhouse. Scott Schell lived up above the store. Boggess lived in a house just south of his store.

- Descendants of George Fredrick Cady 1855 NY & MI (14 KB)
The search has been virtually fruitless to find the siblings and ancestors of George Fredrick Cady who married Betsy Ann Howard October 05, 1885 in Gaylord, Ostego Co, Michigan. Evidently both George and Betsy died in Michigan in their early 40's. Julia, Charlie, and Jim remembered very little about their parents or how they came to move from Michigan to Ferry county, Washington state about 1900.

- Descendants of John M. Bellew/Ballew 1820 KY & MO (11 KB)
I have been searching for the siblings and ancestors of John M. Bellew/Ballew. He spells and signs his will as John M. Bellew. In census records, family history, and a history book of Pottawattamie Co, the name is spelled Ballew.
John M. Bellew/Ballew married Cincinnati Quians Dunkerson February 26, 1841 in Grundy Co, MO. I have been able to find nothing on the ancestors of Cincinatti dispite the unusual name.
