James Andrew STARR and Elizabeth Amelia EBERT

September 13, 2004:

Hi Al:  I am looking for information on James Andrew Starr of Huntley Twp.  
who died during the winter of 1873.  That could have been in the early part 
of the year or the latter part of the year.  We know there was heavy snow on 
the ground.  I suspect likely in the early part.  His wife Elizabeth Amelia Ebert 
married my G. Grandfather William Sample about a year later.  I have gone over 
Sue Barr's wonderful material and for the life of me I cannot find Obits and 
marriages for 1873.  I am attaching a couple of Generations on James Andrew & 
his wife.  We do not know anything of James Andrew Starr's ancestry.  1873 
was a bad year for Elizabeth Amelia Ebert.  She lost her husband, her eldest 
daughter, her father and her father's sister.  I would love to hear from and 
share info with anyone with knowledge of James Andrew Starr and his family.

New January 12, 2007: Hi Al: I have been procrastinating in asking you to do a minor change on your site. Since I gave you the info on James Andrew Starr who married Elizabeth Amelia Ebert b: Jan 02, 1834, I have come up with some additional thoughts about their dau. Carrie Starr who married William Burton. I have looked high, low and where ever for William Burton. As a result of material that I have read, I now believe that his name may have been William Barton. Would you be so kind as to add in what I have indicated below?. ......... 2 Carrie Starr b: 1855 in probably named Caroline d: 1873 ............ +William Burton or Barton b: Abt. 1850 .............. 3 William Burton or Barton b: Abt. 1871 ..... .........3 Angela Burton or Barton b: Abt. 1872 ...
