I am seeking information about the George P. BAKER and the Thomas A. DELANY
families that lived in the Marathon area of northeast Buena Vista County from
about 1880 until about 1920. George Baker (born @ 1859 in WI) married Mary
Delaney (born @ 1864 in OH) in Buena Vista County about 1891 and they raised
their family in the Marathon area and just across the county line in Clay
County. The Delany family was originally from OH, but lived in IL, and Thomas
served in an IL regiment during the Civil War. He moved his family to the
Marathon area from Story County, IA. Does anyone have any information about
these two families?

This is a county list solely for the discussion of all things related to the history and genealogy of Buena Vista Co. and the people who made it what it is today. Buena Vista County was formed on January 15, 1851, from open land. It was named in memory of the Battle of Buena Vista in the Mexican-American War ending in 1848; the victorious United States annexed considerable territory as a result. Its county seat is Storm Lake.
