I am trying to obtain information on Mr. Watson Van Sickel (possibly Henry Watson Van Sickel). He lived in Sioux City and was a business man. He came to Sioux City from Le Mars, Plymouth County, Iowa. I would like to find out if Henry Watson (Watson) Van Sickel died in Sioux City, unfortunately, I don't have any dates :( An obituary would be helpful. Thanks and hopefully I will be able to make some connection with this limited information. 

Update: Sat 1/8/00 3:37 PM

I live in Florida and get to "the North" about once every five years, or so. I am still searching for information on Mr. Henry Watson "Watson" Van Sickel of Sioux City, Iowa. He was living in Sioux City in May of 1915, (this was in his father's obit) and he was enumerated, at age 25, with his mother and father in 1900 in LeMars. He must have made a move to Sioux City sometime between 1990-1915. He married later in life, he is not included in the Plymouth County Marriage register, so this would lead me to conclude that he was married, possibly in Sioux City. He was born in LeMars, Plymouth County, Iowa in 1875. His parents were Henry Watson Van Sickel and Anna Benham Van Sickel. Unfortunately, this is all the information that I have, hopefully Sioux City has a city directory or business directory of that time and could look to see if he is included in it, just to give me a "jumping off point", because right now, I've run out of leads. Thank you
