I am looking for Porters, Hobbs and Zimmermans from the Walker, Urbana

more about her family.
Thanks for any help.

Seeking information onf my g-g-g grandparents Joseph Sheely and wife Abbie Kellogg who lived northeast of Shellsburg in late 1800s. They had one son Delbert (Bert) Sheely who resided in the county and had daughter Mrs. Sanders.. Am particularly interested in locating pictures of family members and information on their affiliations with the community. Joseph was a brother of Morgan Sheeley who resided near Shellsburg. Was Abbie a sister to the Alonzo and Orison Kellogg who were active in Oak Grove church?

On the above Benton County IAGenWeb Project, where I think you were at, go
farther down and you will find OBITUARIES & CEMETERIES, below that you will
find "Cemetery index" and "Cemetery locations + maps". The "location + maps"
will locate the cemetery for you-- 1/2 mile west of Atkins and then 1/2 mile
south. The "cemetery index" lists St Stephens which my wife and I inputed the
There is a Martin Rinderknecht born in 1899 but none around 1814. There is a
Johan born in 1817. Hope this can be of some help. I am related to some of
the Rinderknechts and have a lot of relation buried in that cemetery. My wife
and I both attended St Stephens Church as children and grew up in that area.
Good luck on your geneolgy project. If I can be of further help, let me know.
Hi Benton County,
Does anyone have any information about St Steph Cemetery.? It may be around
Fremont Twp, in Benton Co or possibly in Waubeek Twp in Linn Co.
I found mention of this cemetery while researching the Rinderknecht name in
the book, German Settlers of Iowa by Margaret Krug Palen. The book mentions a
Karl Rinderknecht who in 1861 came to Waubeek, Iowa where his Uncle Martin
Rinderknecht lived. Karl and several other Rinderknechts are buried in St
Steph. Cemetery. In checking at the library, I cannot find any record of this
Does anyone know where it is?
My ancestor is Martin RINDERKNECHT b abt 1814 in Germany. Martin filed a
Declaration Oath for citizenship May 31, 1860 in Linn Co., was a blacksmith
and lived in Linn Co. His daughter, Christena was born 25 Oct 1865 and grew up
in Palo Iowa.
I think Martin died sometime between 1870 and the 1880 census. I cannot
find any records of death, or in the cemeteries that are in Linn Co Library
and was hoping maybe my Martin is buried in St Steph.
Christena's obituary in 1933 mentions a brother, Joe Rinderknecht of Moreland
Kansas, and sisters, Carrie Brenmer of Atlantic and Mary Lightbody of Mason
If anybody knows about these people, please contact me.
I would love any information or ideas that you might have.

Congratulations on finishing your transcript! Yes, I volunteered to
proofread. I prefer to proof from a printed copy of your transcript
against the copy of the original census records. If you're willing to
pay for postage to mail it all to me, I'll chip in for the return
postage to send it all back to you when I'm finished. Deal?
