I am looking for a James Halliday born in Canada, settled in the Sioux City, Woodbury County area in the early 1900's. We found him on the 1920 census in Sioux City, Woodbury. He was listed as the head of household age 60. His wife's name was Daisy age 36 born in Iowa and two children Evalyn age 12 and Milton age 10 both born in Iowa. Daisy died in May 1970. Last residence was Sioux City, Woodbury, Iowa. We believe that James was the oldest son of James and Elizabeth Halliday. The family was originally from Ontario and emigrated to Becker Co., MN in the 1880's. The 1920 census stated that he came into the US in 1879.

Please contact me at the above address. I do not use any other address at this time.

Seeking information on Chauncey L. Howard b. 1848 PA, m. Sarah __________ and sired "LP" as indicated on 1870 Census for Sioux City, Woodbury Co., Census.

Chauncey died shortly after census was taken in 1870 and I am trying to determine when that occurred and where Sarah and the child went.

Sarah was 18 yrs of age in 1870 and the baby was one month old at the time of the census.

Anyone who might have access to marriage records or obit records, I could certainly use your assistance. Chauncey lived next door to his parents and siblings in the 1870 Census and is listed as a farm laborer. Silas A. and Elizabeth Ann Carpenter Howard were his parents.

Thank you for the kind assistance.

I have information that my great grandma, Lily Hammond lived and was married in Woodbury County, more specifically Anthon, Iowa.  She married Albert Pearl Hawk.  I believe she would have been born around 1880-1890 and married at least before 1913.  They had three children after moving to South Dakota.  Their children's names (if this is helpful) were Wesley Thomas Hawk, Lester Hawk and Jesse Emmet Hawk.

I have been unable to find any information on Lily and Albert except that Albert's father's name was Jesse.  However, I don't know how much time Albert spent in Woodbury County (other than getting married there), let alone his father.

I realize I have not given you much information, but I have given you all that I can find as of yet.  Thank you so much for your help!!

 Is there a list of births in the Sioux City (Woodbury County) area for  1850.  I have been searching for my grandfather, whom was born in Sioux City  June  3, 1850. His father immigrated from Denmark (Sommersted?) well before 1850, > married locally and the family returned to Denmark in the mid 1850s. I > think that His mother had family that remained in the area. His name was  Andrew Hansen, but I'm not sure what his father's or mother's names were,  nor am I sure that Andrew didn't change his name when he returned in 1864.  He remained in the area for a few years before moving West. He had a > couple of siblings, but not sure if they were born in Iowa or in Danmark  after their return.  I was wondering if there was a way to get a list of the male children born  around June 3, 1850...perhaps that could lead me in the proper direction?  Would appreciate any information.

Hickman Family of Woodbury County, Iowa

Where are the children and grandchildren of Edith Winifred (FOGG) HICKMAN (1876-1979) and her husband Charles Addison HICKMAN (1875-1947) of Morningside, Woodbury County, Iowa ? A five-year genealogical journey beginning in Fairfield, Maine has led me to a fabulous narrative by their daughter, Mildred (HICKMAN) STEVENS, in the WCGS's "History of Woodbury County, Iowa." We share a common ancestry via Edmund ADAMS (Skowhegan, ME) and his wife Fanny (SOMERS) Adams of New Brunswick, Canada. I am interested in comparing genealogical notes with my Woodbury County Cousins. Siblings of Mildred (HICKMAN) STEVENS reported as Leon, Wilbur, Lois, Alice and Addison. Respectfully, Sharon A. McMahon.

Looking for any information on my maternal grandparents, Carl Christian Hogansen (born 1880 in Denmark and died Oct, 1918 during the Influenza epidemic in Sioux City, Iowa), his wife Emma Wenzel Hogansen Desmond Williams from Parkston, South Dakota who died in Sioux City in 1952 and William H.

Does anyone know if the cemetery has been listed? I believe that Mary Lorena must have remarried after she and Silas were divorced. Silas appears with a second wife in the 1900 census, so they were divorced[?] before then. Therefore her name might not appear as Rudd.
