Continuing Quests


We all have those intriguing and/or perplexing questions about our families.   Here are a few of my top questions.   As I continue developing this site, I will flesh out the questions and the journeys that I have pursued.

  1. William Andrew Inhoff – came to the US from Germany when he was fourteen.   Where in Prussia was he born?  Who were his parents?
  2. Emily Sears Templeton, b. 1856 in Piscataquis County, Maine.   Where did she go after the death of her husband, John Frank Templeton in 1879?
  3. Parents of Diana Woods, b. 1814 in Licking County, Ohio.   Found!  George and Susannah Woods who came from Rockingham or Shenandoah County, VA.   Now to know more.
  4. Parents of Nicholas Kimble, b. 1827 in Guernsey County, Ohio
  5. Parents of Elizabeth Evans, b 1830, perhaps in Delaware County, Ohio;  wife of Ralph Minter, b 1821 in Delaware County, Oh; died 1881 in Hardin County, Ohio  Found: John Evans (1803-1884) and Maria Cochran (1809-1861)

  1. I stumbled on your site and love reading about my ancestors! I am the daughter of Peter Templeton who is the son of Hubert and grandson of Fred (the canoe bulder). I still have some of the decals that he used to apply to canoes he built. I also have a large ornate picture frame that Hubert had in his house that used to have a picture that I cannot quite recall who it was. I recently asked my dad (Peter) if he remembered and he thought it was either Ruth or a pic of him and another as a little boy. If you are back in the Greenville area be sure to look up Pete! He has a little shop behind his house where he builds model ships and all the steam ships that were at one time on Moosehead Lake. He is just up the road from the Historical Society.

  2. I just stumbled upon your website…Nicholas Kimble (Kimball) is my g-g grandfather and I’m also trying to figure out who his parents were. If you get any leads, please let me know….I’ll do the same!


  3. Hi Bob,

    I’m Hubert’s son Richard and Ruth (Templeton) Rollason’s nephew. I have quite a few old photos of the family i.e., Ruth, Fred, Orman, Percy, Richard, and Angie at Kineo. I would be glad to forward them to you if you’d like. My wife, Pam, and I move to Meriam’s corner in Concord, MA to her family’s farm a few years ago to take care of her elderly father.
