Ive rescued an old photograph of Blair ROSE of Storm Lake, IA which was
taken at the Coman Studio in Storm Lake, IA. The photograph appears to have
been taken in the 1880s with Blair noted as 10 months old and 14 ½ lbs.
Im hoping to locate someone from this ROSE Family so that the photograph
can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you
know someone who might be, please contact me.
Welcome to June and Summertime! It's time to get out and enjoy the weather in between rain drops! The Midwest has certainly had more than it's share of wet weather, but at least the temps have been comfortable.

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.
