My name is Julie and I am researching my family and my Great-Great-Grandmother's maiden name is Rebecka Vassar and was born about 1857 in Iowa and her father was born in Virginia and her mother was born in Iowa.
I got this information off the 1880 Federal Census for Brown County, Kansas. Rebecka marrried a man by the name of Albert Cottrell sometime before 1878.They might have gotten married in Wapello County, Iowa???
They had three children:
Frederick - born 1878 in New York Maude- born 1880 in Brown Co.,KS Ellis- born June 28, 1882 in Brown Co., KS
I can't seem to find out anything about Rebecka Vassar, so maybe you can help me????
