A new lead and a sad story in my genealogy research.

#52ancestors   #genealogy  
Remember that “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” thing that I was trying to do? Well, I guess I've turned it into more of a “52 Ancestors in However Long it Takes me to Write About 52 Ancestors (…which is definitely much longer than 52 weeks)” thing. It's week #40, and I'm on ancestor #5. Fail.

We still have that late 1800s style of "news". We call it social media.

Posting some sailing photos on behalf of Kate, since she didn't get a G+ account for her birthday.

So I guess I'm going to write about 52 of my ancestors this year.  I wonder if I can keep it up?  Here's #1: http://www.maguidhirish.com/blog/?p=168

Only 1 week left and I'm half way to my goal - $125 to go!  A donation of $25 will help with trail monitoring and clean up efforts so that we can all enjoy the river and its public amenities. See what else a dollar can do: http://tinyurl.com/q2rhq59.

As part of my #genealogy research, a couple of weeks ago I ordered the Land Entry files for my 2nd great grandfather from the National Archives. These are documents pertaining to the process he went through to homestead in the U.S. under the Homestead Act of 1862 (which allowed people to come to own 160 acres of land after living on, farming, and improving the land for 5 years).

Just sharing one of the documents, because I think it's really cool. Everyone that went through this process had to have someone that they knew vouch for them after the 5 years were up, stating that they had acted in good faith.  That's what this document is. But it also gives me a glimpse into the life he had, and how he lived.  It reads:

"We, Edward Boyle and Joseph Merkle, do solemnly swear that we have known Anthony Maguire for 5 years last past; that he is the head of a family consisting of 6 members and a citizen of the United States; that he is an inhabitant of the SW 1/4 of section No. 10 in township No. 117 of Range No. 27 and that no other person resided upon the said land entitled to the right of Homestead or Pre-emption.

That the said Anthony Maguire entered upon and made settlement on said land on the 6 day of March, 1863 and has built a house thereon 1 1/2 stories high, 18 by 24 feet, shingle roof, two doors, five windows, two floors, a good and comfortable home to live in, and has lived in the said house and made it his exclusive home from the 6 day of March, 1863 to the present time, and that he has since said settlement ploughed, fenced, and cultivated about 30 acres of said land, and has made the following improvements theron, to wit: Dug a well, Built a stable and chicken house."  -- dated 22 Oct 1868.

I wish I could go visit the land, but the Winsted Airport lives there now...

I'm not sure who they are...maybe friends or neighbors? Trying to figure it out.
