My Grandfather's name is William Horace HOLLOWAY. William and his wife Jennie
or Jennifer BURNS, born 1862 (they married in 1884?) moved to Brule Cty,
Dakota Territory and homesteaded on section 17 in the early 1880's. My father, William
Sylvester HOLLOWAY, was born at Puckwanna, SD March 16, 1887, near Red Lake. He
had a sister named Grace ( she died Sept of 1969)a year or two older. I don't know
if she was born in IA or SD. They moved back to Lehigh. My grandfather had died
five months after my father was born. There my grandmother left the children either
at an orphan's home or with someone. My father did not realize he had a sister until
he was 8 years old.
Jennifer may have had 12 sisters, the last one died in May 1997. One of these sisters
lived with my Grandparents in SD. She married a man by the name of HERRINGTON.
My father died Feb 1969.
I would really like to locate my fathers relatives.

Rubel ). I would enjoy being put in touch with others who information or interest
in the family history.

Her parents names were Merle Harrison Shields & Grace Elizabeth FLATTERY.
Lois's father was 41 when she was born. (I think) My mom's birth name is Lois Ann
SHIELDS born 08/21/43 at St.Joseph's Mercy in Fort Dodge, Ia.
My fathers birthname is Dorance Van Hoff.
I was adopted when I was two by a Paul THOME.
I am planning a trip to Europe, Sept 1998 and would really like to go to the areas
where my ancestors came from.
UPDATE!!!! - Sat, 29 August
I had contacted the Iowa Genealogical Society and they returned my research fees
because I had been " legally " adopted. I took your advice and did an e-mail search
on the last name Van Hoff. I got lucky. I've been communicating with a great aunt
who lives in Fort Dodge. She has given me quite a bit of information. I have been
communicating with a second cousin almost daily. It has been very exciting! Here
is additional information to add to my query.
The original VAN HOFF name was VAN HUFF. It was changed when my great-great
grandfather emigrated from Germany in the 1890's. My great grandfather's name was
August Van Hoff and he married Elsena Harmena COLLMAN (lived in Pocahontas,
Iowa). My grandfather was one of eight children and he was born in Pocahontas, Iowa.
He was named Dorrance Robert Van Hoff and he married Irene MEIER (she has
a brother Lester/Leister? who sill lives in Fort Dodge, Iowa).
