The 1908 Lincoln plat shows no Pattat's in Lincoln Twp., only a C. Pattat in
Grant Twp. He lived very close to the Sweet's Cemetery however; the cemetery
was 1 mile N, 1 mile W and 1/2 mile N of C. Pattat's residence. The legal
subdivision for Sweet's Cemetery was the W 1/2 of the SW 1/4 of Section 32 in
Lincoln Twp.; in 1908 C. Pattat's residence was located in the NW 1/4 of Section
9, Grant Twp.
In the 1895 census, Constant and Rosa are living in Grant Twp. with their
children Louisa and Louis, ages 32, 28, 4 and 3 respectively. Constant was born
in New York, Rosa in Des Moines, and the children in Buena Vista Co. It's a
little confusing whether Rosa was born in the city or county of Des Moines; the
enumerator was supposed to list the county of birth (if in Iowa), but I
noticed on the same page he listed someone's birthplace as Sioux City, so I'm not
sure what he meant--you probably know where she was born, though.
Hi Wendy. I just went to the link you supplied. My deed record is Lincoln
Township of 1892. I have a copy of deed record "Z", Constant Pattat to Rosa
Pattat; 25 January 1892. I am trying to figure out from the description
where their land was in relation to Sweet's Cemetary, just northeast of
Truesdale. Several of my ancestors are buried there.
Thank you for your help. Olivia
Have you checked out the B.V. County Genweb site?
If it is in Fairfield Township, I have several years of plat maps in the
Albert City Centennial Book that I have. Check out the website and if you
find it is for Fairfield let me know and I will look them up and scan them

Hi. How can I find out where I can get maps showing sections of Buena Vista Co.? I want to find the area where my grandmother lived between Storm Lake and Sioux Rapids. I have some descriptions on a deed record of 1892. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you. Olivia
You might know that the newspaper above was published between 1882 and about 1971 in Breda, IA and later in Wall Lake, IA.
Now I'm looking for issues of this newspaper between 1916 and 1971 and clippings of obituaries. I would appreciate your answer if you have those items.
The clippings can be send by Email (frisian(a)netins.net) or snail mail to my address (P. O. Box 269, Titonka, Iowa 50480-0269). In return I would send you a translation of the obituary/obituaries.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Buena Vista County, Iowa Genealogy Group
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.
