to get back to you tomorrow-oops! I guess I should say "later today!"
The National Archives has a web site for genealogists at
http://www.nara.gov/genealogy/genindex:html with a very good guide to
researching their facility.NATF Form 80 can be ordered on their website
The NATF Form must be used for ordering military, pension and bounty-land
warrant application files. Military service records "are based on service
in the United States Army (officers who served before June 30, 1917 and
enlisted men who served before October 31, 1912)"
The success of their search, they state, depends on the completeness and
accuracy of the information you provide You must know the state from which
he served, dates of service or war in which he served and whether Union or
"Military service records rarely contain family information. Pension
application files generaly are most useful to those who are doing
genealogical research and contain the most complete information regarding a
man's military career." From NATF Form 80.
I have one bit of information for you. I have an 1872 atlas of
Benton county. In it there is a Dr. E. Robyn, druggist listed as a

I am trying to find information on the Joseph BLOUGH family. Joseph
BLOUGH married Mary FIKE in 1842 in Pa. Sometime after 1850 most of
this family moved to Iowa. My informatioin finds that they were in
Garrison, IA in this century. One of his daughters, Suzanne, married a
Samuel BOYER in Pa. They lived in Pa. until they died. Samuel BOYER is
a great grandfather of mine.

would it? -Albert Einstein
My name is Edward Wurtz. I have a relative from Luzerne, Edward William
Robyn (my 1st cousin four times removed) , who was mentioned as a businessman
in "The Town of Luzerne," Excerpts from Belle Plaine, Iowa - A History
1862-1962, Chapter 8. (His last name was misspelled as Willaim Rohbein.)
Edward's mother was Catherine Wurtz, my 3rd great grandaunt. His father was
John William Robyn. His parents came from Emmerich, Germany in 1837. Edward
was born in Cincinnati on November 26, 1837. He died in Luzerne on January 1,
1881. This is all I know of him.
If anyone has further infomation on Edward I would appreciate any help.
How is the settling of the estates coming along?? It takes time.
I have been looking at the 1880, 1895 and 1900 census for Benton County.
Now I have ordered the 1900, 1910 for Linn County. My relatives were in
Cedar Rapids, and Walker as well as Urbana and Center Point.
I have been trying to get the connections from the Porter line.
Where would I write to get military records on my ggrandfather?? He died in
Walker. He was not in the civil war, but the Indian War.
And the 1900 census told me that he was naturalized. He came to US in 1870.
Where would I write for those papers??
thanks a lot for a lot of questions.
Have a great holiday season.
thanks for your time, but let me order the 1900 census and see what i get
on that one.
this is not an urgent project and you are very busy with the settlement of
estates. it is a difficult time losing parents, let alone have to settle
their estates. we went thru that but it was several years ago. not an easy
that is so much more important than my request. i really hate to impose.
do you have the address to order the book?
i will get that. it will hopefully have some other surnames listed.
thanks so much for your offer,
