My grandfather was born in the early 1880s in GROVE, Iowa. His name was
Ernest Eugene Barker. I can't find Grove, Iowa, on the map. Would that
have meant Ida Grove? Or was there a Grove, Iowa, back in the early
1880s? His father was Benjamin Howland Barker and his mother was named
Miranda. I am trying to trace the family's steps since Benjamin and
Miranda were married in Wisconsin,--- later they moved to Idaho, but my
grandfather stayed in Iowa and married my grandmother, Edna Johnson.
They lived in Guthrie County, Iowa. Thank you very much for any
I would like to see if any of the following three Wm. Reids are found in the
1885 Iowa State Census:
Wm. H. Reid, Sr., b. 1803 He probably immigrated from Chatham, Ontario to
Dubuque, IA in 1874 - 1879. I found him in the 1880 Iowa census on a recent
visit to the National archives but their copy machine was out of order that
afternoon and I was left with only the following notes: 1880 Iowa SI (T748
R-60) Wm. Reid, white male, 77 born Ireland; child, Wm., age 6, born IA.
I also found in 1880 Census,Dubuque Co., Julien twp. a Wm. H. Reid, white
male, 33 born England living with Mary C., age 29, born Michigan.
I would like to be able to connect these Wm. H. Reids as three generations of
the same family. I know that my father was the fourth WHR (he was born in
1903) and that HIS father's death certificate says he was born July 17, 1874
in Dubuque, Iowa I believe he is the child shown living with the
grandfather in Dubuque, IA 1880 census. From other family records, it would
seem this child was actually born in Ontario, Canada. Also, there are three
missing sisters. Ida, Juliette, and Alice. Ida is shown in the 1900 Dubuque
census, Julien twp., age 31. born, Eng. Canada (could that mean English
speaking Canada?). Ida is found living with another family as a protege and
her occupation is teacher. I know that she was a musician and taught in
Dubuque all of her adult life.
This family is still a puzzle with many missing pieces. I thank you for your

I am not very familiar with dates of US censuses, so the above date isn't
necessarily the right one. I am looking for a relation Jean Deering (nee
Miller) - her husband was a Dr Deering but I don't know his first name. She
had at least two sons, one was David Miller Deering born 1907 and the other
I don't know the name of. They lived in Boone Iowa. Jean was born in 1877
but was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming and moved to Boone I believe when she

My FTM 1860 Census Index shows no Stahls in these two counties. Also no
Stahles. There are several Joseph Stahls listed as follows: California;
Ballard Co., KY; Erie Co., NY; Fayette Co., PA. Also a J. G. in CA and a J.W.
in Marshall County, KY. There are numerous other Stahls in other Iowa
counties, but no Joseph or Mary.
Of course, there is always the possibility the indexer failed to pick them up
or mis-read their name.
Sorry no luck.

Hello. I'm at a stand still, until I can confirm some information in the
1860 census for Jackson, and Clayton Co's.
I'm looking for Joseph Stahl:
Mary (his wife)
If anyone can do that, I sure would appreciate it.
I would like to find the family of Theron Hoadley (Hadley) in the 1860
census of (probably) either Monroe or Wapello Cos. He would have been 8
years old. His parents names might have been William and Jane. He might
have had a sister named Margaret or Meg. I would like to verify the parent's
and siblins of Theron.
Thank you so much,
JoAnn, I am not the administrator of this list, and I may be speaking out of
turn ... but here is a problem as I see it, on what you've asked for.
The 1900 census is a large one. There is an index for it, but the sounndex
for Iowa is all together (not an index for each county). So what you're
asking for, unless there just happens to be someone out there who has been
searching the same names you are, is for someone to first order and pay for
the soundex for Iowa for Daniel. There are probably several films for just
the soundex, and you specifically need the one that will include your Daniel
When you find your Daniel family in the soundex, it will tell the exact page
and dwelling number, so you may find the family easily when you get the
actual census (which may also be on more than one film, depending on how
large Dallas county was, in 1900). Unless someone already has Dallas county
on permanent loan for 1900, that also must be ordered and paid for.
The soundex will tell you the names and ages of all the people in the
household, as well as where they were born, and what relationship they have
to the head of the household. There is, however, a little more information
to be had in the actual census, and it is worth looking at it in many cases.
The only records that I try to look up, are ones in which the person
requesting it has an identical name to the ones I research, or have already
found the page number that they are needing (by having ordered the soundex
themselves) ... AND I already have the census on hand (so I don't need to
pay the $3.25 for it).
I'm hoping that I've explained the problem and haven't erred in taking it
upon myself to do so. I have four county census records on permanent loan
for Iowa. Dallas county isn't one of them. However, even if it was your
request would be beyond me, because the soundex records that I would be
interested in, wouldn't include Daniel.
Perhaps someone has agreed to research this name for you, and if so that's
great. I just wanted to explain how you can help out those who might be
willing to help you out.
Good luck in your research;
