Submitter: Richard Harrison WALBRIDGE/OVERMAN

Does anyone know of a WALBRIDGE or OVERMAN family living in or near Clarinda ca. 1865? Levi Walbridge and Emma Overman are listed in their son's marriage record as being born in Clarinda, IA. Levi was born about 1855, Emma probably about the same time. I can't find Walbridges in Page Co. census indexes. There was a Levi Walbridge born about the right time in Cedar Co. so I wonder if Clarinda is wrong and should be Clarence?

Is this hospital still in existence? Would they have any records I could obtain?

SINCE THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN AURA OF SECRECY REGARDING THE MARRIGE OF OUR LATE PARENTS MY SIBLINGS AND I ARE ATTEMPTING TO DETERMINE THE VALIDITY OF THE ARTICLE REGARDING A MARRIAGE AT CLARINDA. I WAS BORN JULY 3, 1927, AND THE AUGUST 1926 DATE OF MARRIAGE WOULD LEGITIMIZE MY DATE OF BIRTH. HOWEVER, WE ARE NOT AT ALL CERTAIN OF THE FACTS. AS YOU WELL KNOW THE MIND SET OF PEOPLE REGARDING OUT OF WEDLOCK BIRTHS WAS MUCH DIFFERENT AT THAT TIME THAN NOW.

I am seeking information about my great grandparents, George W. WHITTINGTON and Lucy ABERG. They were married in 1886, probably in Illinois, and had a daughter Eva born in 1887 in IL and a son Louis born in IA in 1888. George died in Shenandoah, IA in 1908, and his death certificate indicated that he was a widower. Lucy was still alive at the time of the 1900 census, so she must have died sometime between June 8, 1900 (the date of the census) and April 10, 1908 (date of George's death). I know George's parents were William B. WHITTINGTON and Nancy TIDWELL (or KIDWELL). Can anyone identify Lucy's parents? I know they were born in Germany (her father) and NJ (her mother).

I have recently started doing research on that part of my family and wondered if you knew anything about a Margaret Wilson that had married Isaac Pike Davidson. I know of one daughter they had, Sarah Ann Davidson who was born in Kentucky. The family must have moved to Iowa at some point in time after Sarah's birth.
