Query: WINSTON/SCOLLARD of Boone County

WINSTON—Patrick WINSTON (born about 1833 in Ireland) applied for a marriage license in Boone County, Indiana on March 17, 1857. His intended bride was named either Mary S. KOLLARD or Mary SCOLLARD (born about 1839 in Ireland). I've not been able to find a return of the marriage license, and Catholic churches in the area have no record of the marriage.

Patrick and Mary had children:
--Albert John Winston (born November 1857 in Indiana)
--Sarah E. Winston (born about March 1860 in Nebraska)

They were in the 1860 census in Dixon County, Nebraska, near the household of John SCOLLARD (born about 1837 in County Kerry, Ireland).

Any information on Patrick and his family would be appreciated, especially proof of his marriage to Mary, or son Albert's birth or baptism record.

  1. Hello
    my husbands family has links to Ponca Nebraska Scollards in the late 1800's.

  2. Her name is Mary Scollard. She was a sister to my great-great grandfather, John Scollard of Ponca, Nebraska. Her mother Elizabeth brought the five children from Canada to Boone Co, IN, and they moved to Dixon County, NE in the 1850s.

  3. I am trying to find Elizabeth Scollard's husband's name and her maiden name. Can anyone help me, please?
