                I am looking for any information on Anna Jane Millar who was born June 12, 1812 in Morris County, New Jersey. On June 18, 1830 she was married to David Willis Dickerson in Denville, Morris County, New Jersey.  The Dickerson's came to Dodge County, Nebraska in 1860, and were residents of the county for some time. Anna was the grand-mother of
Mrs. George A. Millar, (Fannie May Allison) who were also residents of Dodge County and later resided in Curtis, Frontier County, Nebraska. Anna died December 6, 1899 in the home of George A. Millar at Curtis, Nebraska. She and David  (who passed away January 21, 1891), are both buried at Woodland Cemetery, at North Bend, Nebraska. I am mainly interested in
finding out who Anna's parent's were. I have been trying to connect her with John and Anna (Taws) Millar who were married in 1808 in New York, but so far I have been unsuccessful. John Millar was the son of James and Mary (Anderson) Millar, born  January 7, 1780 in Clackmanan, Scotland. Any information on Anna and her family would be greatly appreciated! This  information will be used for a Millar-Miller family tree!

There was a query on the Dodge CO page that was posted in October but I had my message returned. It was a reply to Mike Thomson query #196 regarding the surname Watt in Dodge CO.  I will post the information below:

In answer to your query on the Dodge CO page, I have a William Watt born 1804 in Scotland. However I have his wife as Jane Hutchinson.  His son Archibald was my great grandfather and he was married to Elizabeth Greaser.  Archibald's siblings were John Watt; James Watt; William Watt born June 16, 1833 m. Mary Barnard; Isabel Elizabeth Watt; David
Watt; Janet Watt; Jane Watt; Thomas Hutchinson Watt; and Samuel Watt who according to family tradition died as a child.  I have been in contact with a Earl Watt who seems to have some similar information but have not fully sorted it out yet.  My cousin is the one who has done the research on this line.  I did obtain a marriage license of Archibald and "Lizzie" because of information that I found on the Internet and that event was in Dec. 1873.  Archibald disappeared after a divorce.  Do you think there is a connection? Thank you

I am interested in any information about the ROGGENSACK or PAGENKOPF families of Dodge County, NE. Anything you may know would be welcome! ROGGENSACK: Joachin and Sophie, immigrated first to Ill., then to Nebr. between 1858-1861. The name seems to have died out after 1922. PAGENKOPF: Father's first name begins with "A" and mother's name is Maria, immigrated first to Wisc., then to Nebr. between 1868-1873. I haven't found mention of this name after 1880 except for the obituary of Bertha Pagenkopf Rink in 1899, which doesn't mention any surviving family members.

Thanks in advance, Judy Ellis Czarnecki ( Monrovia CA
