I tried to email you.Let me know if you got it.I went on Google and put in Willard Bancroft's name. Found a Bancroft site-- Willard Bancroft m. 2- Philena Richardson 4 Nov 1849. He died 21 Jul 1852.1-wife Hannah Bennet.Also I forgot to mention the 1900 census said James W and Harriet married 6 years. So he must have bought the land and came back. Since both children say they were born in IA.
