I'm looking for information about my great-grandfather Hose DuVall who was born in Kentucky in December 1869.
Apparently he had a daughter Ada born in Iowa in 1885, mother unknown. Then in 1890 he married Ida (Metzger ?) in Iowa.Ida was born January 1870 in Iowa. Hose and Ida had four children-- William, Virgie, Lahosa and Clyde (my grandfather).
In 1900 they were living in Adams County IL.Hose worked on a Mississippi river barge.Hose died sometime before 1910 and Ida was living with the children across the Mississippi river in Lewis Co MO.
In the 1900 census Hose's entry is next to the entry of a Jacob DuVall, born in KY in 1853.Jacob was married in Iowa around 1890, just like Hose.I don't know if they were brothers or if Jacob was an uncle or cousin, or if it is a coincidence.
If anyone knows anything about these folks, it would be appreciated.
