One Person at a Time....Eleanor
~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~
Today's Name: Eleanor
I had 3 women named Eleanor in my tree that needed to be researched:
Eleanor was born in 1712 in Scotland. She married George Bartram (b. 1708 in Scotland) and they had at least 1 son: George (1734-1777). George married Ann Bartram (1741-1824)- my 2nd cousin, 10x removed.
I didn't find much about Eleanor, just that she died on 03 Sep 1775 in Darby, Pennsylvania.
Eleanor married Moses Owens and they had at least 1 son: John Robert (1826-1893). He married Anna Eliza Mendenhall (1830-1910)- my 3rd cousin, 6x removed.
I couldn't find much about this Eleanor either. She was born about 1789 in North Carolina and she had 2 children:
John Robert (1826-1893)
Rachel (b. 1829)
Elenor had a daughter- Mary Virginia Shane (b. 1864). Mary married Henry Luther Mendenhall (1862-1937)- my 2nd cousin, 7x removed.
Eleanor Swope was born on 17 Apr 1842 in Fall, Indiana and died on 06 Feb 1923 in San Francisco, California. Her parents were John Swope (1818-1876) & Mary Ann Stewart (1825-1881). I don't know if she had any siblings.
Eleanor married George Washington Shane (1837-1899) on 02 Apr 1862. They had 2 daughters-
Mary Virginia Shane (b. 1863)
Martha A. Shane (1867-1880)
