THINGS TO NOTE:

  • The ages of several of these people do not correspond with the dates that I have. Most are off by 3 years.
  • I have that Bernard Starkey died in 1879, but he appears on the 1880 Census, research is needed here.
  • Where did Ada Starkey go? I have her born in about 1862, was she married by this time?
  • Where did John Starkey go? I have him born in 1871, but he is not on this census.

NEXT TO DO: Locate Albert Starkey with his parents in the 1875 Minnesota State Census.

To get started, I am going to post what I “THINK” to be the correct information so far. Most of this is undocumented, which is why I am doing this. First, if you see something wrong, you can provide me with the details so I can put it out there for the world to see. Second, it will give me a place to provide documentation for what I do have so far, and keep it all in one place. Time to take a look at the family.
