MOBRAY, MOUBRAY, MOWBRAY, MUBRAY posted by Stephen King on Saturday, August 4, 2001

I'm resident in London, England, and therefore have a slight problem with doing research in the USA, but I'm hoping someone may be able to help ! Thomas MOWBRAY with his family was a resident of Benton County in 1900, when he shows up in the census there. He had four or five sons, and stated he was born in Wisconsin, around 1856. I'm wondering if anyone might have access to the Wisconsin Census (Indexed ??) for 1855 (State)or 1860 and 1870, and be able to fit him into it. I very much doubt there would be more than one or two families of the name there then. The spelling comes out as MOBRAY, MOUBRAY and MUBRAY too !! Perhaps also, there might be something useful in Benton County records, as I believe he may have died there, though don't know the date. I'm happy to conduct a return search in any London archive. Perhaps

LITTLE EGYPT posted by Kelly Loveless on Monday, August 13, 2001

LITTLE_EGYPT: I am looking for the geographical location of this "neighborhood." It has quite a rich history of stories when you read both the early histories of Linn and Benton Twp. East from Oak Grove Church will eventually lead you into Pleasant Creek Park. At one time there was a Turkey farm, Evens and Pickerills farming and living in this particular area. There was a stage coach route through here in the 1800's and the old Lewis Bottom Double Decker School House. The next rd East (now 59th st Trail leads you into a trailer court. This area has an old church/school that was burned and now is part of a home. Traveling just a tad farther towards Linn County is the McBoom Cemetery. What I would like to know is where is Little Egypt and what is the name of this trailer area. The Lower Stone School House sets on the next "trail" # farther east.
