I am looking for information on Lula May Hester Rowse who died in Pierson, Woodbury, IA on November 18, 1965.  She was born on July 3, 1885 - location of birth and parents are unknown.  She was married to William Wheeler Rowse - don't know the date of marriage.

Three children were born:

Hazel May Rowse Crooks - b. June 18, 1918

Charles Lee Rowse - b. 1910

William Leonard Rowse - b. December 14, 1909 - d. January 15, 1995

I have check the Social Security Index on the Internet with no luck in finding her there or anyplace else.  I have also checked with family members and they don't know anything except giving me the name of Vierth and possibly a Clark family.  In checking I found a Susan Vierth who married a John Clark (my husband's name is John Clark) and they lived in the right area of Iowa but I still can't find a connection to Lula May Hester Rowse.

I am looking for an obituary which might give us some information on her parents.  Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Ingward Reese was born in Sioux City, Iowa, May 6, 1894, the son of Jens and Marie Gorseth Reese.  The surname "Reese" was changed from the previous surname of "Rise."  Marie Gorseth and Jens Reese were married circa 1880, we believe in Yankton, South Dakota.  My husband's father, Ingward Reese, gave his birth information on his marriage license.  While visiting Sioux City in June, we researched records at the Woodbury County Courthouse, but were unable to find where his birth was recorded.  I understand that was not too unusual in those days.  (I, too, was born in Sioux City, Iowa, and didn't leave that great state until I was 15 years old, and still have a multitude of relatives in Iowa.)  We are interested in any information we can find regarding Ingward Reese and his parents.  All family records were lost in a fire in South Dakota.  My husband knows that his father, Ingward Reese, attended a college in Sioux City, which I would assume to be Morningside College, so we assume his family resided in Woodbury County for some years.  We would appreciate any guidance you might be able to give us.  Thank you.

Mary Lorena HULETT was first wife of Silas RUDD. Family records say that she died 30 April 1932 in Sioux City, Woodbury Co., Iowa, and is buried in the Floyd Cemetery at 2p (probably the location in the cemetery). 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. If someone lives near Sioux City and is willing to go to the cemetery and look for 2p, and Mary Lorena, I will be very grateful. I will reimburse any costs necessary. Thanks a lot.
