I am searching for information on a family of Van Scyoc (various spellings possible) who were in Fremont Counyt, IA in the late 1840-1860's.
They are listed on the Fremont Co. 1850 census under the name SCHYHOCK with the first name being "A.V." which I believe probably includes the "Van" part.On that census they are listed as a farming family: "A.V." SCHYHOCK, age 42 b. in VA Sarah Annage 24 b. in VA Margaretage 3b. in IA Franklinage 6 mo. b. in IA
The Franklin is the ancestor I am searching. He married a Lucinda Oakley and later divorced from her. He did have a son named James who married an Elizabeth MENOR in KC,MO. in 1902.
James and Elizabeth ended up in northwest Arkansas.
