While looking at a 1920 census record of Pottawattamie County, Iowa, I found some Lary information that I had never seen.This may or may not relate to your family.Keep in mind that Cass Co. is next to Pottawattamie Co. in Iowa. On Sheet 1A, line 1, census done January:August H. Lary, renter, white, male, married, 41 years old, came to USA 1880, NA 1900, born in Germany, as was his parents.He was in the Ministry.Listed with him was his wife Ida C., 39 years old, to the USA 1885, NA 1900, born in Germany.The children's names were; Cordia M, daughter, 17 years old, born in MN, listed as a stenographer in a lawyers office, she was listed as single.Esther H., daughter, age 13, born in Illinois.Leydia A., daugher, age 9, born in Illinois.Family was living on South 7th Street in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
On Sheet 13A, line 21, found a Thaddus J. Leary, 41 years old, married, born in Nebraska, father and mother born in Ireland.Listed with him; Stella Leary, 34 years old, married, born in Illinois, father born in Ireland, mother born in Ohio.Thaddus was listed as a secretary for a local drug company in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Do not know if either of these will help you, but thought it may help you or someone else.Esp. the first family.I have heard verbally only that the family in Cass county were of German descent, but do not know that for sure.Hope you find a connection.When I get to Cass Co.IA again will find what I can there for you also.
