What time frame does it cover?
Need any info or tips regarding:
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN HARRISON ADAMS, born April 1856, Moulton, Appanoose
Co., Iowa, died November 16, 1912, Wichita, Sedgwick Co., Kansas.
Frank Adams, the much shorter version, was the son of JOHN E. ADAMS born
in Ohio, and FANNY DEPLER, born about 1821 in Switzerland.
This Adams family arrived in Iowa from Ohio about 1855 and before April
1856. The family children includes:
Henry D., born about 1845, Ohio

John W., born about 1854, Ohio
BENJAMIN, born about April 1856, Moulton, Iowa
George W., born about 1859, Iowa
Frances C., born about 1862, Iowa
1. Name of Cemetery (s) located in Moulton where Frank is buried per
obituary and Kansas death certificate.
2. Could his parents John E. and Fanny be buried in this same cemetery,
and is there any info available to determine this, ie - contact or phone

shows Nells Mill for Post Office and the 1870 census shows Unionville for
Any tips or ideas are greatly appreciated.
Several of my SILKNITTER family moved to Sedgewick, KS also.
Henry Perry SILKNITTER m. Mary Ann THORNBERRY and they moved to Rosehill,

Also, Henry P. SILKNITTER'S brother, Hiram William SILKNITTER m. Anna M.
McNeal in 1883 in Centerville, Appanoose co., IA and immediately moved on to

Is there anything in the Appanoose co., history book about my SILKNITTER's?
