MISSING 2 McCord brothers, James & John, s/o George McCord & Elizabeth Mossman

Posted: 1425682221000
Classification: Query
Surnames: McCord Mossman Randol Randall Lodge Marshall Hezlep
The only "major" clue left for children of George & Elizabeth Mossman McCord that I have found is their daughter Mary McCord Marshall's obit saying, "She is the last of the family of 3 brothers and 3 sisters, 2 others of them having died during the past year." (=1887")
PINK=sisters & BLUE=brothers if COLOR shows: {NOTE: not in birth order, see attached FGR]

(1) Sally McCord Randol/Randall b 9 Nov 1801 Mercer Co.,PA d 16 May 1862 Story Co.,IA
(1) Allan Francis McCord b 2 Jul 1811 Mercer Co., PA d 3 Sep 1875 La Crosse, La Crosse, WI
(2) Jane S. McCord Lodge b 10 Apr 1804 Mercer Co., PA d 1 Jun 1887 Pottawattamie Co., IA
(3) Mary McCord Marshall b 20 Jul 1806 Mercer Co., PA or Trumbull Co., OH
d 28 Dec 1887 Victory, Mason Co., Michigan
The other 2 brothers have been identified as
(2) James &
(3) John

Since the Mary McCord Marshall's obit states that another sibling d within 1887, it would have been a brother
Since the obit states that Mary is the "last" of the siblings to die, the other brother would have died BEFORE 1887.

"James" and "John" are both common names, therefore a challenge still persists, but if one survived until 1887 there should be records on him.

Both brothers were born 1794-1818
on the OH/PA line either recorded as Mercer Co., PA or as Trumbull Co., OH
One d before 1887 and the other d in 1887

2 of their sisters married and migrated to Iowa:
Sally McCord Randol/Randall to Story/Polk Co. &
Jane S. McCord Lodge to Pottawattamie Co);

The 3rd sister, Mary McCord Marshall, migrated to Ludington, Mason Co., Michigan

Their brother, Allan/Allen Francis McCord to La Crosse, La Crosse Co., Wisconsin.

My hope and prayer is that the brothers had death notices that referenced their family of origin and/or mentioned siblings.

‘any descendants of these 2 brothers out there?
