Hi. Yes, this is my John Quirk. Nodaway is the county - sorry, sometimes I mix them up myself. The family lived in Polk as well as the Maryville area. John's wife died very late in 1879, and the family fragmented throughout the area by 1880. John is alone working, in 1880. Do you have any knowledge of this family?? After 1880 I lose John entirely. thanks for helping!
