I am looking for the parents of Robert Roy Schenck born approx. 1879 Red Oak
Robert was married to Ethel Wright daughter of Amanda Wright
I have census information on Robert 1910 thru 1930
If any one can help with parents/siblings would appreciate it. Have checked
1880 census with no luck
Barbara in Louisiana
Thank you for the information on the death.
I feel sure this is Gretta's mother.
The husband is listed as widow on the 1930 census.
If posting this thank you to the list is NOT proper I apologize. I am new to
researching Iowa and new to the list.
Again thank you
I did not find Greta/Margaret either, but this may be her mother:
From Buena Vista Co. death records:
Darelius, Anna age 55y 2m born Smaland, Sweden; died 2/15/1927 in Storm Lake
of cancer of the uterus; married; burial Lakeview Park, Storm Lake
I am in hopes someone will be able to help me. I am trying to help a friend
with her family who lived in Iowa and in the Buena Vista area.
Family is: Elton Schenck married Gretta Darelius
I have found some census information on Schenck family
I am NOT finding in the 1930 census information on Gretta Darelius who was
still not married at this time. I do find her father and brother listed in
Storm Lake Township
father a widow and brother 26. Last name was spelled Derelius
also have seen it spelled Daurelens in 1920 census of the same area. Gretta
is listed on the 1920 census with her mother and father. Her brother is
listed as a servant 16 yrs old, living with a Slaig family. image 42 on ancestry
I do search the census on Ancestry.com and find they don't always list all
the names. If someone would do a 1930 census look up for me and for Gretta or
Margaret I would appreciate the help. I have searched with no luck. She was
born approx. 1905 in Sweden.
Thanks in advance for any help
