In the History of Clinton Co., Iowa 1879 appears a short bio of J.C. McConnell. His wife was Catherine Bohart, born 4/12/1840 in Hardin Co., Ohio to Jacob and Susan Bohart. It appears the Bohart family moved to Clinton CO., Iowa also. There are several other Boharts in the county as of 1879 but I don't know if they are connected.
