My family history is a mystery. I know that my grandfather, Ralph Euritt came from Iowa. I'm not sure where he was from or his parent's name. You wouldn't think, with a last name like Euritt, it would be hard to find information about your family. It is, though, and I'd appreciate any help anyone could provide. thanks!

Just getting started in the genealogy field to search for my ancestors. My father's side is a little vague as mother and him had separated while I was young. She wouldn't talk about him so am trying from scratch. His death certificate says he was born in Ottumwa, Iowa Oct 16, 1892. His father's name was John R. Foster and mother's name looks like Emma Foster. Would appreciate it if anybody could help my effort.

Thank you

I descend from Isaac Edwin Lancaster, and Mariah Laughlin-Lancaster. I find there was a time when they had two children born in IA. Des Moines, IA.
Edwin A. Lancaster, born 14 Mar., 1858
Alice Marie Lancaster, born 12 Nov., 1860
I can't find the Lancaster's listed on a census in IA anywhere.
Daughter Samantha Lancaster married in Redfield, Dallas County, IA to Ebenezer Herring, Son of Ebenezer Herring, and Jane McLaughlin. 21, Apr. 1864

I have been searching, and you would think I could find them on a census somehow. I feel they must have been living with a member of the family, so Isaac wasn't the Head of Household.

I was born on 2 Jan 1946 and raised in Des Moines, IA (DSM). I graduated from T. Roosevelt H.S. in 1963 and Drake Univ. in 1967. My father, JOHN RICHARD HOFF and mother, VALETTA F. SCOTT were both from DSM, and I have a younger brother, ROBERT TENNANT HOFF (DOB: 4 June 1948 in DSM), who not lives in and practices law at the Hqtrs. GSA for the U.S. Govwernment in Washington, D.C. I served 31 years in the U.S. Air Force (8 years Active Duty and 23 more in the active Reserves), retiring in 1998 as a full Colonel. My ancesters were pioneers to Dallas Co., just west of DSM, arriving there in 1853 and homesteaded and farmed there. Our family farm is not the situs of the DSM Golf & Country Club golf course in what is Walnut Twp. I have a great deal of genealogy on the various legs of the families: HOFF, ADKINS, EVARTS, GOODWINS, HOHLS, & SCOTTS. I recommend the Dallas Co. "History"/Biogtraphical and genealogical site, where I have entered a lot of biographical data on these ancestors.
I welsome contact from long-lost family members or those doing history or genealogical research. Feel free to call me in chicago at my work at (312) 346-8111 or E/M me directly at <jsh@aviationattorney.com>

I have really enjoyed your site. It is very informative. I have been trying to research the family of Porter Isaac Harnden and it has been very hard. I noticed one mistake in the transcription of the age of N. E. Harnden from the 1900 census. It gives a birth date of Aug 1895 which would make him only 5 years old and he was 51. The correct year is 1848. Just thought I'd tell you. You are doing excellent work. Please continue it.

As an Australian it might seem a little strange, but I have more interest in the American Civil War of 1861 to 1865. I find purchasing books from America a little to pricy so I look around old shops similar to Salvation Army and what is known here as Second World used books. I have the full 2 editions of "Harpers Full History on the Civil War and note that it did not start with early Southern Victories

I just discovered the IA GenWeb Project last week after first learning about the KS GenWeb Project (through research on Dad's family history). Mom's family history is entirely traceable to the Danish settlements in and around Soldier, Iowa. She still has relatives and friends in that area although she's now a resident of Joplin, MO. As a family we lived for a time in Atlantic and Belmond and finally settled in Marshalltown where my Dad established his consulting engineering business. My husband and I met in Ames. Our daughter was born there, and we continued to live there until our departure for CA in 1978. My husband and I now reside in Colorado Springs and our daughter and her family in the Chicago area. We still have family and friends in IA, though; and I consider it to be a strong half of our family's "roots!" I was delighted to find this website and look forward to researching it more when my time permits. 8/12/03

The Hanks family name is rare in Ireland and My mother and her sister still live at Sally Mills in Rathangan Co.Kildare.Have some early photographs of the hanks family sent fron the U.S. and some of Hanks family members who in turn visited Ireland. If any of your researches are interested in exchanging information? I would be pleased to help.

This was suppose to have been before my Penn entry.

I am researching Wenzel Hubel/ Marie Kerska - and - Anton Julius/ Mary Stanek. Other surnames who married into family were Drahos, Smith, Calhoun, Eggspuehler, Benesh.

The above couples are the Parents of William Alexander Hubel b.Jan. 1854 and Mary Ann Julius b. May 1860. William and Mary had 8 children I the Pocahontas County area.

William was a carpenter and built most of the churches in the area. One of which I know still stands. It is the SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church. Later he was a Saloon Keeper.

I have tons of other info to share and some cousins that are also researching these names. We would love to share this information with others so if you are a cousin out there please contact me and I will help you to open some doors. I am sure that you probably have info that we don't have yet so we anxiously await your response to the info here.

I LOVE THIS SITE !!!

Happy Hunting

Also am researching Penn surname.

My Penn's migrated from Ohio in about 1856.
my g-g-grandfather was William W. Penn born abt. 1808 Maryland he got married in Virginia to Maryanne(?). They had three children (first born was George b. abt 1931) in Virginia and migrated to Ohio. As far as I can figure from census records they had about 16 children. The last two or three born in Iowa. I believe in the Hardin county area.
My g-grandfather Zachariah Penn was born in 1844 Ohio. He married Mary Jane and they had 14 children in Hardin county.

Now that is a bunch of Penn's just in my family. I know that I have cousins out there who I can share all of this with.

This is a wonderful site!!

This line of FLITCH, seem to be the hardest people for me to locate. I have my great grandmother's info,, but am stuck when it comes to finding out anything conclusive on her parents. Some information seems similar to what may be her family, but she's never mentioned with her parents names,,,in what I've seen online or other records. Should anyone be able to assist me, I would truly appreciate it.
Are there any specific places within this site that might be able to help? I've looked, but maybe missed something.

Glad to see your site. I am hoping that it will help me find my great grand parents. They may be named Shiner. However, there is a story in our family that my grandfather changed his name from Shinners or O'Shinner to Shiner when he moved from Iowa to Missouri. He was in Missouri in the 1900 census. Both his parents were listed in that census as being born in Ireland.

What resources are available? Especially, are there census records for free viewing?

Thanks.

I am a 7th Generation Iowan & have found this site to be very helpful in finding information about my ancestors. I had assumed that one of my gggg-Grandfathers was buried in OH, but have visited his grave as well as those of his brother & all their married children & spouses in Iowa. Have also connected with a number of descendants of my ancestors' sibilings. I do wish all Iowa Cemeteries were listed. I am having a difficult time locating information about the Frakes Cemetery in Hamilton County. I fear there may have been houses built over the graves of my ggg-Grandparents, as no one has been able to locate where they may have been moved! Keep up the efforts of adding information-it's appreciated.

Dear Friends of Veterans:

As project coordinator of the Veterans History Project, Voluntary Service, VA Central Iowa Health Care System, Des Moines Division, I am writing to encourage your support and participation in this project of honoring our nations war veterans.

There are 19 million war veterans living in the United States today, but every day we lose 1,700 of them. Motivated by a desire to honor our nation’s war veterans for their service and to collect their stories and experiences while they are still among us, the United States Congress created the Veterans History Project. The authorizing legislation, sponsored by Representatives Ron Kind, Amo Houghton, and Steny Hoyer in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senators Max Cleland and Chuck Hagel in the U.S. Senate, received unanimous support and was signed into law by President William Jefferson Clinton on October 27, 2000. Public Law 106-380 calls upon the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress to collect and preserve audio- and video-taped oral histories, along with documentary materials such as letters, diaries, maps, photographs, and home movies of America’s war veterans and those who served in support of them.

The Veterans History Project covers World War I, World War II, and the Korean, Vietnam and Persian Gulf wars. It includes all participants in those wars—men and women, civilian and military. It documents the contributions of civilian volunteers, support staff, and war industry workers as well as the experiences of military personnel from all ranks and all branches of service—the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.

Knowing that this and future generations of Americans have much to learn from those who served, we at Voluntary Service CIHCS have embraced this effort locally, and encourage you to join us by consenting to a video interview honoring your service to our nation during difficult and dangerous periods in our history.

For more information visit the national web-site at www.loc.gov/folklife/vets/, or contact me at the phone number listed below.

Thank you, in advance, for your anticipated participation in what I know you’ll find to be a rewarding experience.


Sincerely,

John Shimko
Project Coordinator

He lived in the Drakesville area. If you know anyone who is working on these lines I would be very happy to share info with them. Thanks

Would be interested in communicating with you. Have visited grave site of ggg-grandparents in Burlington, gg-grandparents grave site in Washington, and g-parents grave site in Tingley. Found 2 sets of cousins in Washington, Ia, in May '02 that had been unknown to me and more history. From the whitepages, I know that there are many Darbyshires in the US but haven't checked connections. Reply to dnwills@yahoo.com Thanks.

That could be quite expensive considering if you're not sure
which cemetery a person is buried in; place of birth and date; etc.

Is there any way a person could view the records without costing so much money?

My great grandparents, John and Caroline (Phillips) Johnson were married in LUCAS County Iowa March 1870. That is the earliest record we have of him. He was born in Denmark and came to this country, per the 1900 census, in about 1850. We are searching for any tidbit of information.

AND I married a Smith from Fayette County. How would you like to be researching Johnson and Smith?

This site is great...however, our family history in Iowa is a long one and I would love to see more on it. Right now there is only info on one family member. My surname is Charlet. We have owned a family farm for 112 years in Dallas County, Iowa. There is only info on William J. Charlet. Please consider this from someone who is having trouble finding family info online. Thanks so much!

Great idea. I think Stephen Steward from Monroe co. has done a wonderful job. I looked at his site yesterday and it was an excellent job. Diappointing to see only the Appanoose girl's family on line and nothing else. Seems to me, that's abit self-serving and not publlc minded, but perhaps that will change with more time. It seems very irish and temperamental, sometimes I can and sometimes I cannot get into the pages.

And I have got in contact with such lovely people that know a lot about the past and that searched in old documents and records and sent me copy of old clippings and all. I'm so happy over it!
And today I have contact with some of the old family of Macklin/ McClean,Mclaen : living in Iowa and North Dakota and I have never got this contact without all help. Their surenames was change after they arrioved in USA, maybe caused of problem with the language? And without all this help I couln'd never have guessed that a McClaen or a McLaen was grand grand schildren og my ansectors Macklin from Jemtland, Sweden! It was really great to get all this.
I love you Iowa!

Researching my husbands family in building our family tree. Looking for Warren J. Orendorff, born in Iowa and was orphaned there. As an adult he traveled to Columbus, Ohio with a Construction Firm that built The Lincoln LeVeque Tower here in Columbus. He married Helen Edwards and had five children, Robert J., Warren C., Margret Ann, Clara Sue,and Francis Ann Orendorff. I am married to Warren J. Orendorff's grandson, Robert J. Orendorff, Jr. Since, Warren J. Orendorff was an orphan in Iowa, it has been most difficult to locate information on his life in Iowa. Hopeful to obtain leads to his history. Janet L. Orendorff

Hello,
I miss the days I used to visit Keokuk, Iowa where my Grandfather Frank was raised. I am an Arnold from that area. My Grandfather had two sisters named Verna and Florence. Their parents names were John Lincoln Arnold and Donetta Caroline Arnold (formerly Blair). Is anyone out there related to me? John and Donetta lived in Mcdonough county Illinois before moving to Keokuk.
Thanks.

I have tried for many years to trace my Iowa ancestors but with so so success. My great-grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Steward/Stewart, claimed Muscatine Co. Iowa as his place of birth on December 26, 1857. His mother was Delia (Bendelia, Bendena, Adelia)Nason Steward. According to family lore, my great great grandfather, John Steward/Stewart was killed in the Civil War. In 1863 a Delia Stewart married John Benshoff in Blue Grass, Scott Co. IA. In 1865 the family moved to Johnstown PA and stayed there for about 30 years. Then in the late 1890's, after her second husband had died, Delia Benshoff, Lincoln Benshoff, and William Steward moved to Black Hawk Co. Iowa while my great grandfather, Benjamin Steward stayed east. The 1863 marriage is the only record that I can find of their stay in Muscatine, Scott and/or Cedar Co. Iowa from about 1856 to 1865 and the earlier record that I can find of Delia Nason Steward/Stewart Benshoff. I have look through census records, etc. with no clue. If anyone comes across a record, article, etc in Muscatine, Cedar, Scott, or Black Hawk Co. IA or anywhere else in the area with either of the following names: Delia Nason Steward/Stewart Benshoff, a John, William or Benjamin Franklin Stewart/Steward, or if anyone has any idea why I might not be able to locate information on these people, please contact me.
