I am searching for the following surnames: Michael, VanArsdol, Burton, Gerdom, Lowley, Swanson, and Hamilton. The Michael family lived for many years in Harrison County Iowa as I believe did the VanArsdol family. The Charles Christopher Burton family lived in Omaha, Nebraska, Logan, Iowa (1930's), Grimes, Iowa, St. Louis, Missouri, Hillsborough, New Hampshire(Civil War, possibly before, to early 1900's). William Burton (1840-1906) married Ellen Campbell. Hewas in the 7th New York Volunteer Infantry and later in the 11th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, and on Gunboat Anderson when he was in the Navy. He served in the 6th U.S. Calvary for 15 years. He served on the U.S. Navy gunboat in 1865 and was discharged at Norfolk, VA. In 1865 he re-enlisted in the U.S. Army and was appointed to Fort Ethan Allen where he served as a Brevest Col. until his death.
I have no information about the Gerdom family except the names
Ernest Gerdom who was married to Ophelia Lowley. He had sons Howard, Russell, Ellwood, and Eugene and a daughter Edna.
The Swanson family homesteaded in the Weston, Nebraska area. Names I have here are Lawrence Alonzo Swanson and his wife Florence. I am also seeking information on Benjamin Rufus Swanson who was married to Hildur Hanson.
Any information would be appreciated. I am willing to share whatever I have.
