|I wish to make contact with anyone descended from the Theodore S. Jackson family who came to Taylor and Page Counties about 1880. T. S. Jackson and wife and some of the family are buried in the New Hawley Cemetery. I am descended from a brother of Theodore's and am especially interested in obtaining a picture of Theodore and his family. Thank you for any information you might have. JE657634@aol.com|
Looking for information on James
D. Keister, son of William E. Keister and
Looking for information on a Frank McClure family. There is a
Frank McClure listed in the 1920 census for Page Co., Amity.
He was 47, b. IL, white. Does anyone know anything about this
family. I am looking for a Frank McCLURE b. PA 1848, farmer
or blacksmith. He is in the 1880 census for Madison co., IL.
His brother's 1927 obituary shows a Frank in Iowa, but I cannot
find a Frank of that age in Iowa in the 1920 or 1930 census.
Could he be living with a son Frank? This could be his son
as he was born in IL. The elder Frank would likely have passed
on by 1938 as he would have been 90 by then.
help appreciated. Thanks.

We are trying to locate the whereabouts of an Elizabeth (Lizzie) Lemrick (Limerick).
Thanks to your site, we were able to locate her father's will in Page County
Courthouse which promoted even more confusion!! In 1872 her father,
Alfred Limerick, made a will in which he left his estate to his wife and children.
One of these was Elizabeth. Alfred lived in both Worth County and Page County;
will was made and filed in Page County. Alfred died in 1879
(too bad there are no obits available!); the will was probated and
Elizabeth was not mentioned among the heirs. A year or so later,
Alfred's wife, Sarah, filed a petition contesting the will. I don't
think she meant to contest it, just make sure that one of her
step-daughters, Elizabeth, was included. The name given was
Jennie E. Lemrick whose Guardian was N. H. Rhoads. Estate
was paid out to Jennie E. Limerick's guardian, N. H. Rhoads.
There is no address given for this person. Could this Rhoads
have been a director of a hospital or residential facility? I thought
you might know. There was also a sister, Jane, who used the name
Jennie, but they are clearly two different people. Someone was confused!
I have tried to locate the Rhoads individual unsuccessfully.
The copy of the 1880 Census is often illegible. Elizabeth was
alive in 1881 when the estate was settled. If you have any insights,
I would greatly appreciate your input. Thanks for any help you can give.

Searching for information about Adam Sommer and wife Christina Sinn
who were married near College Springs, Feb 29, 1876. They are
buried in Hawleyville Cemetery.
The oldest child (Lillie Anna Sommer) was not buried there, but in Twin Falls,
ID. That is who I'm a descendent of.
This family holds more than just a genealogy interest with me. This family
also holds a heredity line that has affected generations of offspring. Many
of my family members, including myself, have inherited a disease called
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
At this point we don't know if it's Adam's side or Christina's. But I do know
that Adam's son George Phillip Sommer 1886-1929 and his son Glen George
Sommer 1915-1954 (both buried there) died of the disease. Both Adam and
Christina are German immigrants, so research is just going to get more
difficult from here. I'm going to make inquiries with Iowa's vital records
department and see if death records might reveal something.
Again, many thanks for your help!
Pat,I am interested in the family of Richard COLWELL, a black man who was a
porter at the Delmonico Hotel from about 1892 -1913 then worked for the Hunt
Hotel (both in Shenandoah, Iowa). I know he was still living in April 1930, he lived on
West Thomas Avenue.He was about 80 years old in 1930. His wife was Sarah J.
BOWMAN-COLWELL. They should be buried in Shenandoah or nearby. Anything
you can find on him or his family would be greatly appreciated. I am doing a little
sketch on him and would appreciate any photos of the hotels to go along with it.
Thank you for your trouble.

Jackie, there was an article about Richard Colwell in the Sentinel Post, March 26, 1912.
You can get a copy of this by writing to the Shenandoah library...

I am trying to locate the next of kin of Christine Johnson who passed away
in Houston, TX in March of this year. She left no will and as a consequence
the state of TX will get her estate unless
we can locate her next of kin.
Mahlon Dana Johnson a watchmaker by trade and his wife Otillia Naruzzi
an immigrant from Spain. The had 4 children Loveday born about 1912,
Jessie, Mahlon jr. and Christine. Christine often told people about a
person named Walter and that her father
was from Iowa.
Lavinia Bullock Johnson who married in Page county in 1868. Mahlon and
Lavinia had: Mahlon, Benjamin, James, Hollis, Grace (m. Wilkerson), John A.,
Emma M. and Mabel. Since Christine's father came from a large family I hope
I can fine a relative so the state of TX doesn't enlarge their coffers. Mahlon Johnson
died in the 1920's and I have not been able to find what happened to Christine's
brother and sisters. She told someone
they all went back to Iowa when their father died.
I am still looking for any info on my family from Page County.
Elonzo Ellis born in NY in 1813, his son William Nelson "Nels" Ellis
born in NY in 1844, his son Hallie Dewitt "Pete" Ellis born in IA in 1879
and any other part of the Ellis family. Marilyn Sage: email@example.com

together but you will need to carefully
check all of this out with further research.
