VAUGHAN - The great grandparents Vaughan hailed from Coon Rapids, in Carroll County. In checking the social security death records I noted that someone named Ada Vaughan passed away with a last address as Coon Rapids, so it must be true there have been Vaughans there! Our Vaughan family was supposed to be from Coon Rapids. WALTER MERLE VAUGHAN, the grandfather was born either November 13, 1884 or December 3, 1896, perhaps in Coon Rapids. But he and his bride ELSIE, born September 27, 1899 moved to Rockford, Illinois where they raised their family. There was an older brother Waite Vaughan and a baby sister June Vaughan in this family also. I haven't found a record for their parents yet. I was told there was an Aunt Ruthie who lived on the farm and was alive and visited in the 1950's, unfortunately, I do not know her surname, though it may have been Vaughan. It would be fun to hear from anyone who could corroborate this family legend. And it would be nice to add to the family lore. They are all deceased as well as their children, and half their grandchildren. Tracing them is like tracing the musical talent in the family. Music was important to this family. Aunt June was a concert pianist in Rockford, and her nephew, young Wally, was the leader of the Cherry Valley High School band and orchestra. His sister played the piano and all the children were raised with music. Thanks for any help!

They lived in Dedham until 1898 then moved to Oklahoma. Henry was born October 13, 1869, the son of Michael and Bertha Mitchell. He was born in Jewell, Iowa. I'm not sure whether that is Hamilton County or Mills County, they both have a town named Jewell. I don't have any information on Michael or Bertha Mitchell. I have been told that Henry was left an orphan and he lived with a Norwegian family. I don't know what their name was.

FRICKE, BOELL - I'm looking for information on the Carroll Co. FRICKEs. First: My relative, William BOELL, married Emma FRICKE around 1897. They are listed in Sheridan Twp. in both the 1900 and 1910 Carroll Co. census. Emma was born in NY according to the census. Her parents were apparently born in Germany. There are a lot of FRICKE listed in Sheridan Twp but I don't know how they relate to Emma. Secondly - I'm looking for information on Elmer FRICKE. Elmer was born around 1917 in Carroll (not sure exactly where) and married Florence BOELL who was also born in 1917 (Grant Twp). I'm sure Elmer is related to Emma at some level but once again I don't know the parents names.

KANE, MADIGAN, TESSANDORI - Looking for information on Herbert James Kane. He and his wife Cora lived in Carroll, Iowa during the time period 1919 to 1924. Cora bought a home on N. Main (Lot 8, Block 3, First Addition to Carroll, IA) on March 36, 1919 from Thomas Madigan and Hannah Madigan. Herbert and Cora sold the home on June 16, 1924 to Mike Tessandori and Martha Tessandori. The Tessandori's were I believe their next door neighbors. They owned a Main Street Ice Cream Parlor and later on their two girls opened a Marty Anne's dress shop. Cora and Herbert moved to Cedar Rapids after they sold the home. Herbert worked for a "gas company". I do know that while they lived in Boone, Iowa around 1910 he was a superintendent for the Boone Gas Works.
