I don't have any information for you, but I can give
you someone to contact. First of all, have you
checked out the Benton County GenWeb? The website is:
Also, for members and non-members, the Benton County
Genealogical Society does lookups. To become a
member, the fee is $10/person or $15/family per year.
I am a long distance member. There are two main
people there that are very willing to help. There
might be a look up fee, you'll have to see on the
website. But they have alot of access to information
that is not on the web. They will even go to the
county courthouse...that's where I have found much
information. Here it is, as well:
Contact information for the society is:
1808 9th Ave.
Belle Plaine, IA 52208
Please let me know if you have any questions. Hope
this helps and best of luck with your family history
