I would be interested in any information you come by on this. Members of my family made the treck to Iowa and lived there for a year or so, returning to Ohio because of the Indians. The land in Iowa was a wedding gift to my great grandmother from her family, who were residents of Butler Co., Ohio. The land in Iowa was near Ames. I am wondering if the land was part of a grant of some kind.
If I find more information about this I will post it for you.
