His name is Julias Austin Moberly, his wife's name is Elizabeth, his daughter's name is Fay "Fayola".

Hi. I am looking for any genealogical information about Maitie Higby of Woodbury County, Iowa and a Dr. George Moon also of Woodbury County. They were in the Sioux City area circa 12/1/1920 to about 12/30/1921. All the information I know is that Dr. Moon fathered a child by Miss Higby, and the child was immediately given up for adoption. After that, Miss Higby can be traced to Tucuncary, NM. It is believed that Dr. Moon later moved onto the Chicago area. The information I need will only be used to determine if there were any medical conditions held by the birth parents and their ancestors, and it will be used to determine if any of the present day relatives should have any concerns with their health.

My grandmother Eda M. Munchrath was born Feb. 27, 1874 in Sioux City, Iowa. Her father was Henry Munchrath born Sept. 10, 1846. We believe that he was born in Germany. Grandmothers mother was Hattie Palmer Munchrath born Feb. 27, 1850. great grandmother Hattie and great grandfather Henry Munchrath were married November 25, 1870 in Dubuque. They traveled from Dubuque to Sioux City. Great grandmother died August 1877 in Dubuque at the age of 27. Great grandfather died a short time later. My grandmother was raised by Felix Munchrath in Sioux city. My grandfather James Hamilton Maguire met grandmother we believe around 1895. Grandfather Maguire had an accounting business in Sioux City for a short time. An old business card gives his business address as 5th Floor Mass. Block - Sioux City Iowa - J. Hamilton Maguire Accountant. Grandfather and grandmother married December 9, 1896 and moved to Chicago where they lived until 1906. Moved from Chicago to Memphis, Tn. and then to Charleston, South Carolina in 1910. One of my grandfather James Hamilton Maguire's brothers (both were born in tipperary, Ireland) Jack Maguire lived in Sioux City for a time. I have a copy of a news paper article concering the death of Jack in Salisbury, Rodesia, South Africa Feb. 6, 1908. The news paper article states, Jack Maguire Former Sioux City Boy Dies. it further states, " The news has reached this city of the rescent death, in Rodesia, South Africa, formerly a resident of Sioux City. Mr. Maguire passed away after a brief illness, being a victim of that dreaded disease known as "Black Water Fever". He was in the mining business in South Africa.I am having a tough time locating the time when grandfather was in Sioux City. I am not sure if he was living in Sioux City when he met grandmother. From family word of mouth stories we have been told that grandfather met grandmother over the telephone as she was a telephone operator in Sioux City. We do know that by December 1896 she had moved to Chicago. I feel as though he may have been in Sioux City when they met. I am trying to find a 1895 census that may give me a clue.

Levi E. Davis born abt 1828 in Massachusetts drowned in 1878 while crossing the Missouri River near Sioux City, Iowa. His wife Angeline Mead born abt 1838 died of fever 1877 and is believed to be buried near Battle Creek or Danbury, Woodbury Co., Iowa.. Their known children were: Mary C., William, Frank M. (Francis Moton), Owen and Dean. Levi and his family are listed in the 1870 census of Woodbury Co. Would like to find the burial sites of Levi and Angeline and obtain the cemetery, location and any information off the gravestones of each. Since they died within a year of each other, suspect they are buried beside or close to each other. I know some counties have an index and a listing to graves/burial sites within their counties. If anyone has access to these publications for Woodbury County, would greatly appreciate any information about them. Will gladly reimburse anyone for their time and copying fees. Once I have a exact date of death, then I can search for a news paper article or obituary about their deaths. Thanks.
