John W. & Ida Howard family

I am doing research on the Swensen and Howard family from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I have traced both sides of the family back seven + generations, back to the 1700s. The Swensens were and still are in South East South Dakota,Turner,Clay and Yankton counties; the Howards were from Northwestern Iowa, Sioux and Plymouth counties.

Research has been slow going but I am making progress slowly but surely. Anyone who is related or may have or need information can contact me, Cory Swensen.
