Thank you for contacting me and for adding a little bit more about your family. It always makes the people come alive for me.
I am not related that I know of. I do a lot of re-posting of articles just to help everyone that may be searching. So if you see anything else on this surname board with my name attached to it they could very well be related to you.
I posted your message to the Decatur web site, that is where the articles come from originally that I re-post here. So hopefully you will hear from someone that has a connection to you.
You are welcome to search the Decatur web site, it is loaded with all sorts of information, census, cemeteries, photos just everything. One of the best sites of any county in Iowa. And if interested you are welcome to subscribe to the site, it is free and we would love to have you aboard.
