Mon Jan 26 23:06:38 1998 Would like a copy of the obituary of Martha Agnes (Simons) ROSE, who died March 27, 1927 reportedly in Tracy, Lyons Co., MN. Martha's husband James M.

Please advise cost of a copy and will send money and address where to be sent.

KENNEY, RHINEHIMER posted by Stacy Kenney on Wednesday, January 28, 1998

Hi! My name is Stacy KENNEY. I am looking for information on my greatgrandfather Frank Kenney. His parents died shortly after his birth and he was taken in by his sister and her husband who may have owned a farm in Minnesota. He was born on Feb. 13 or 14 1870. His sister was Viola May Kenney, and married Mr. William RHINEHIMER. I really would like to know Frank's or Viola May's parents names and any other information you have on them if possible. Frank and Viola's parents were the first of my family to come to the U.S. from Ireland and in order to trace the family there, I need to know all the info about them as possible.
