I am looking for any and all info on Dennis Clancy born 1883 in Ida Co. Married Margaret C. Ungrue born 1889 had children Dennis A. Clancy- 1921, Martin J. Clancy- 1921, Mary F. Clancy-1923, Christina C. Clancy 1929.

Christina was baptized at Immaculate Conception in Sioux City so my guess is that they lived in Sioux City then. I have no idea when the parents died or what happened to any of the children. Dennis was the son of Martin Clancy and Hellena (Lena) Smith. All help appreciated.

Am interested in tracing the whereabouts of Charles E. Crane, who started the Crane Sign Company in Sioux City.  Today, it is known as the Avery Brothers Sign Company. The Crane lineage is from Wm. S. Crane (1830-1899, birthplace unknown, died Centerville, SD.) and Salome Collins (1834-1912, birthplace Ohio, died Centerville, SD). The family lived in Ohio in 1850, where my g/grandfather was born (Toledo) and Johnson Co., Iowa in 1860, where his sister, Adeline was born.  The family moved to Vermillion, SD, in 1866 and to Centerville, SD, in 1870/71.  Charles was born in Lincoln County. He operated a sign painting company in Centerville into the 1890's, when he moved to Vermillion.  At some point he started the sign company in Sioux City.  He is listed in the Polk City Directory's (in the city library) until 1937, where he was listed as living in Lake Crystal, Nebraska (which is five miles from SC). Charles had several children, which I can obtain, but do not have at my disposal as I write this. Thank you, dj

I am totally stumped in my research and am hoping to touch bases with anyone who might be researching or have a connection to my CARTER line. My grandfather was Lewis Napoleon CARTER, b. 25 Oct 1877 in Sergeant Bluff, IA, married 3 Nov 1917, Sioux City, to Fanny May (Marianne) BOWYER, b. 23 Sept 1893 in Yankton, SD. He died 4 April 1957 in Sioux City. I am trying to trace his line backwards and am encountering a great deal of difficulty.......all I know so far about his father is that his name was William W. CARTER, b. circa Jan/Feb 1840 in NY, married Hattie SMITH (m. date unknown) b. circa 1851/52 in NY/NJ. William died a widower on 26 Feb 1903 in Sergeant Bluff. Can anyone lead me in the right direction to acquire further data? Many thanks in advance!

We are looking for info on great-grandparents in the 1860s-1870s. Charles TRIPP married Edith (Unknown), 4 daughters (no sons), Clara (born Sioux City 1875?), Caroline, Alice, Edith, Family lore has it that Charles was a stage-coach driver on the Deadwood City run, participated in a few Indian fights, and knew both Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill. Since daughter Clara was born in Sioux City, they may have been married there as well. We don't know if she was the oldest, youngest, or in the middle. Daughter Clara married George Franklin CROWE from Boone Co. IA. He was a railroad brakeman. There is no knowledge about where they married, but they had 3 older boys in the 1890-1900 timeframe (Fredrick Arthur, Charles Kenneth, and Raymond Edward), and a younger son Harry Franklin born 1/9/1913 in Albert Lea MN. Clara's sister Caroline was reportedly married to a wealthy drug store owner during the 1920s'. Clara's son Harry told us he stayed with them for a few years after his mother died (1920-1925 range?). If they still lived in Sioux City, he probably went to school there. He did describe formal dinners every night, dressing up in a suit, with cooks and maids waiting on them. Harry's full name was Harry Franklin CROWE. He is buried in St. Paul MN. Can you give us any help or suggestions as to how to proceed? We have a nephew within a hundred miles of Sioux City who would be happy to help in any way he can. Thanks.

I am researching the Benjamin F. COOK family ... Benjamin and his first wife Mary (Andre) moved to Sioux City, Woodbury County about 1886 from eastern Iowa (Cedar, Scott Counties). Mary died in 1894 and is buried at Floyd Cemetery. Benjamin (B. 1843) and Mary had the following children: Benjamin A. (drowned at McCook Lake), Willard, Nathan L., Jettie Pearl, and Bessie Lucille. Benjamin married Synthia Caroline WIDNER (born 1863) in 1895 in Sioux City. She was the daughter of John G. WIDNER and Sarah MORRELL. I believe some of the WIDNER family may have moved to South Dakota. Synthia's brothers and sisters were: Mary, William, John Ransom, George M., Sarah Jane, Sonora and Nancy.I do not have any information on what happened to Benjamin COOK, Synthia and family after the 1900 Sioux City census. Perhaps they even had children. Benjamin's son, Nathan L. COOK (born 1880), married in Sioux City, 1901,to Edith GOTHAM the daughter of Gilbert and Amanda GOTHAM. In the late1920's the Gothamís were in Minnesota and Edith is listed as a Mrs. Miller. Did Nathan die young or were they divorced? Information on any of these families to assist in the location of my ancestor, Benjamin and children, would be much appreciated.

Grandparents, James P. and Mary Tess Fitzgerald CROSSON, lived in the Sioux City area approximately 1904-1908. They were en-route from Johnson County, Iowa, to South Dakota. Their fourth child was born in Sioux City in 1905. Brother to James, Charles CROSSON (sometimes spelled CRISSON/CRASSAN), may have settled in Woodbury County.
