I looking for any information on Brennan from Danbury, Iowa. I believe his first name was William and he passed away in 1902. His wife died 7 months later, they are both buried at Danbury, Iowa. I don't know her first name. I know 2 of their children's names: Ralph William Brennan and Coe Brennan. What I'm looking for is all of their children's names and any estate records that you have. This is probably more than you have, but I thought I would try. I would appreciate anything you have. (There could be newspaper articles on his death, he was struck by lightening.) I'm not sure where to look for estate records, so I'm starting here. The reason I'm looking is, their children were all given to different families when their parents died and I would like to know where and who they were raised by. Also there was a large estate and none of the children received any and I would like to know who received it.

I am searching for any information on Julius and Minnie Bunning and their family. They farmed in Concord and Banner townships. Some of their children including my Grandmother are buried in Arlington Cemetery, at Moville. I know both Julius and Minnie were still living in 1930, but there is nothing on them after that. My family is pretty tight lipped so having to rely on my own research. My Grandmother (1902-2000) married (8-12-1921) a Knapp (1897-1967) and his parents were a Soule (Lida) and Knapp (Jesse). This side has been rather easy, as research goes to follow. My grandparents lived on a farm off old Highway 20 between Moville and Correctionville. My brother is also buried beside my grandparents at Arlington Cemetery. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

We are writing to see what information you have about the Bigelow family who farmed near Salix, IA. Their spread was called a ranch and it was along the ever changing course of the Missouri River. In fact, the land known as Bigelow Park remained in our family because of my great-great grandfather Ariel Tinkham Bigelow's craftiness in figuring out the shift of the river (based on his former knowledge as a surveyor). He came to Iowa as a "surveyor for the railroad". He also brought the first short horned cattle to the Northwest Territory. He also brought the first Percheron horses to that territory. He went to Scotland, purchased the livestock and traveled in steerage with the animals to bring them to the US. He was quite a character and lived to be 94 years old. Somewhere we have a copy of the news article that ran in the Sioux City paper, but we know little of what happened to the rest of the family. We think they are buried in Graceland Cemetery in Sioux City. Any information you can give would be of help, Thanks.

George W. Benner, my GGgrandfather, b. 1800 in PA. lived with his family in Sioux City vicinity in 1856 IA census. After that time we have been unable to locate him, his sons David and William nor daughters Harriet and Caroline. George's wife Nancy and young son, Daniel, we found in Vernon Co MO with daughter Maria E Benner who married Chapman McDonald in 1859. Nancy and Daniel remained with the McDonald family in Vernon Co and then Henry Co MO until after 1880, according to the census. Did choosing sides in the civil war, or the war itself, divide this family? Can anyone tell me what happened to George W. and his 2 sons and 2 daughters? We are anxious to know.

George W. and Nancy Hager Benner and family moved from Appanoose County to the Sioux City area about 1855/56. Their children were David b. 1825 OH, Christian G. b. 1828 OH, William b. 1832 OH, Harriett b. 1835 OH, Maria E. b. 1837 IN, Caroline b. 1840 IN, and Daniel b. 1846 IA. Sons C. G. and William were proprietors of a hotel in Sioux City. They and their families are found in that hotel in the 1856 Iowa census. The father, George W. with his wife Nancy and the rest of the family were apparently on a farm in the Sergeant Bluff locality. The only member of the family for whom we have much further information is Christian George, my progenitor. We know that the mother Nancy and youngest son Daniel lived with daughter Maria E. who married Chapman H. McDonald 1859 in Vernon County MO. Nancy and Daniel were still with the McDonalds in Henry County MO in 1870, 1880, and 1880, as indicated by the censuses of those years. We know nothing definite about George W. Benner and the rest of his family, after 1856. We would treasure any information about any of them.

Am doing this for a friend, whose great-grandmother is/was Sadie E. Burright. Sadie's parents were Wesley Brock Burright, born 2/10/1843, and Julia Anzonette Wilson, born 7/19/1849. They were married on 6/14/1867. Sadie was born 7/26/1871, and was one of seven children. Two others were Fred Wesley, born ?/15/1878 and Ida M. Burright, born 2/28/1880. Sadie was married to a Fred O. Watson, in Pierson, Woodbury Co., on 2/24/1890, and many years later to someone else. She is buried in Sioux Falls, SD. She and Fred had two sons, Lynn E. (Everett?), and Fern S. Fern drowned as a young adult so the only descendants of Fred and Sadie is Lynn. There is a newspaper clipping, sans date and place, that states that Fred and Sadie were operating a restaurant when a gas stove exploded, pelting Sadie with shrapnel.

I am currently in possession of a family Bible that originally belonged to Joseph & Eliza Jane (Humphrey) Buchwalter's family. This Bible was later in the possession of one of their daughters, Florence Buchwalter who later married a Miller. She attended Davenport, IA. Public schools. Other Buchwalter children included: Mary Jane, Christian, Edwin Humprey, and Ella Josephine. Birth dates range from Mary in 1847 to Ella in 1854. Joseph married Eliza in 1846 and he died in 1854 before Ella was born. The Miller family included: Effie, Charles, Lizzie, William, and Fannie who lived in and around Moville. This Bible also has a photo section in the back and one of the photos could possible be Joseph and some of the children, because they are old tin-type pictures. If you can help me find the rightful owners of this valuable family heirloom, I would appreciate it very much.
