I would be very interested in a copy of your family history. I can contact you with my addresss in a separate e-mail.
Ellen Miksch Adams, b. 1840 was my g-g-g-grandmother. Her father was William Miksch, born 1810. She was married to John Adams in 1863 in Gnadenhutten, OH. In the 1880 federal census, Floyd County, IA, a 21 y.o. Edward Miksch is working on the family farm. Perhaps this is your Edward Francis, Ellen's 18 yrs. younger brother?
