Sorry to say that I cannot answer your questions, I do a lot of re-posting to help everyone that may be searching. I would suggest to you that you check every surname board for all the names mentioned in the article to see if I have posted anything else on one of the family members. You are also welcome to take a look at my posting history and read what you like, there are THOUSANDS of articles on people from that area of Iowa.
The website the articles are from originally may be of help to you also at: www.rootsweb.com/~iadecatu
If you find that this article is a family connection for you, please credit Nancee(McMurtrey)Seifert as the "original copier". She does all the hard work, I just spread them around.
The website above, you can subscribe to it and it is free. Someone on the list may have answers for you that way also.
