T.J. McGinnis of Traer, Iowa
Posted by: Jay Haack (ID *****5398) Date: June 03, 2010 at 11:17:45

I'm looking for information on Thomas Jefferson (T.J.) McGinnis (my great grandfather) of Traer, Iowa. He was married to Edna [Hyde] and had 4 living children (William, Ruth [Mrs. Roy Perry] Mary [Mrs. John Stoehr], and Edna [Mrs. Ingwer Haack]. My grandmother (Edna) was very scant on giving out family history. she said at one time that T.J. was adopted, but we have no proof one way or the other.

T.J. ran the general store in Traer around 1900, and might have managed the Traer Opera House (info gathered from old news clippings). From what we know, his first wife Edna died, and he married again. But we have no information on his second wife.

Any information on T.J. would be most welcome.
