CASSILL, KENDALL, MILES, SHIVELY posted by Sharon Pickrell on Sunday, March 14, 1999

Samuel S. PICKRELl b. 6 July 1848 in Elkhart County, Indiana. Married Elizabeth S. MILES (Lizzie) b. 3 Nov 1855 in Plymouth, Marshall County, Indiana, on 11 June 1971. They moved to Belle Plaine, Benton County, Iowa. Date not known. They had 4 sons born there: Jack, Will (Bill), Nelson, died at birth, buried in Oakhill Cem, we think. And Charles Seth, b.1878 in Cedar Rapids, Linn Co., Iowa. Jack married Hester Jane White on 22 Nov 1899 in Belle Plaine. Will (Bill) never married. Charles S. married Nellie Mae SHIVELY on 5 Dec 1905 in Belle Plaine. Have been in contact with Charles S. Pickrells family in Oklahoma. They have nothing on Samuel other then his name and Elizabeths name. Supposedly Samuel S. hung himself in the corn crib about 1878/79 in Belle Plaine. Our Samuel S. shows up in the 1880 census of Wapello County, Iowa. Age 31 and born in Indiana. He marries Mary Ann KENDALL CASSILL (b. 2 July 1856 in Ormanville, Wapello County, Iowa) on 13 Oct 1880 in Ottumwa, Wapello Co., Iowa. They have one child a son, Ellis Jacob Pickrell b. 13 Mar 1882. Then our Samuel supposedly dies in a minning accident. For both Samuel S. Pickrell's there is no death record, no grave or cemetary records, nothing in the local papers of either town. So we think both Samuel's are the same one and he skipped town on both families. Am interested in any information on the Samuels and thier families.
