J. M. McGuire

McGuire Searchers: I found this name several times in my lists of marriages from Cass Co., Mn. I think he must have been the minister or or J. P. who conducted the service. J. M. McGUIRE. The dates of the marriages were in 1902 and 1908. He is probably the John Milton McGuire that someone was looking for. Jincy McGuire married J. H. Allison on June 17, 1919. That marriage conducted by H. G. Gardiner, record in E 264, Cass Co., Mn. In my listing of the people buried in the "old" Pillager Cemetery, at Pillager, Mn. I have the following, which was written by myself in June, 1978: "No stone, but a cement foundation with name, J. M. McGuire. Lilac bushes grown into it.--U. S. World War Veteran Flag holder. (I realize the J. M. McGuire you are looking for was probably a Civil War vet, not a World War I vet. But sometimes those markers get replaced, and they are not the right one so don't put too much stock in the kind of holder and what it means. John H. Allison was a Baptist Minister, and I've seen his name listed on various marriages also. He is my G-grandfather. Jincy McGuire would have been my step-great Grandmother. Unfortunately, she died in 1929, and I was not born until a few years later. But I have always helped my mother care for her unmarked grave. If she had so many kids, how come noone ever bought her a gravestone. I always wanted to, but cannot afford it. Even Grandpa Allison and my own G-grandmother lie in unmarked graves also, in Fergus Falls, Mn. Yours truly, Elaine
