My husband's grandmother was Maude Elifritz, b. 1882 in Iowa, perhaps Adair County or Polk County. Her father was William Henry Elifritz, B. 1833 in PA. He was in Adair County,IA in 1880 Federal Census.
Her mother was Sarah Ann McCaughey (info from 1925 Iowa Census). Maude married Henry Lee Scott, b.1877, Otsego, NY, in about 1900 in Des Moines, IA. (His father was Christopher Scott, b. 1829, Otsego County, NY.)
Henry Lee Scott and Maude had 5 children, LaRue b.1901, Maude E., b. 1903, Emma, b. 1907, Anna, b.1912, and James Lee, b.1913. James Lee Scott married Ruth Wolfkill in Des Moines IA. My husband is from that family.
Several Elifritz names in the Iowa Census reports that may be brothers to William Henry Elifritz.
Would like to exchange info with anyone who knows any of these people. Don't have any Elifritz family info beyond William Henry.
