Issue 45 brings a return of good old Ira Sargent, born ca. 1843 in Canada and "first appeared" in Illinois in 1880.
This issue outlines three ways I chose to tackle his parentage. For reasons the issue makes clear, these options were prioritized. This post includes a clip of the marriage application of Ira's daughter Ida. We'll have information from his other daughter's marriage along with complete citations to these records in issue 45. Get in on the fun!
