Hello! I would like to know if anyone is researching or familiar with the
Jaacks that lived in the Schleswig area. I have found my grandfather in the
Morgan Twp. Cemetary and want to learn more about his roots. His name was
John R. Jaacks.
Thank you very much!
I would like to locate information about this family's history in Crawford County, in Dow and Denison.
Ernest Christy, b. Sep 1874 in Pennsylvania, son of Alexander and Alice [nee Muting?] Christy. Father and brothers, Emory and Albert, moved to Crawford Co., IA sometime between 1885 and 1895.
He may have moved with his first wife to Crawford County between 1905-1910. He married Frances ? in about 1914. She was also born in Pennsylvania. I can't find them in either the 1900 or 1910 census. Next he appears in the 1920 census in Omaha, NE, where some of his extended family had moved. Did he stop in Crawford County first? What was the name of his first wife? He had two children by her, Margaret, b. abt 1902, and Kenneth, b. about 1904, both in Pennsylvania.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
