Hi Doris -
I don't have a lot, but my gr-gr-grandmother married a William Don Carlos before
she married my gr-gr-grandfather, Cornelius Barnett. William b. abt 1829 in
Illinois was the son of Archibald (Archilus?) Don Carlos. He, William (30) and
Rachel (Brooks) (22) appear on the 1860 census in Fabius Twp., Davis Co., Iowa
on pg 56; he was buried sometime aft 1860 at Bethel Cemetery in West Grove Twp.,
Davis Co., Iowa. They did not have any surviving children. Also, appearing in
neighboring households, on the 1860 census were John (26) and Lucy Don Carlos
(25) with children William (3)and Laura A. (1); and Archilus (60) and Elizabeth
(55) with (dau.?) Frances (21).
Rachel was on the 1850 census in Perry Twp., Davis Co., Iowa; they married 04
Dec 1856 in Davis Co.; their children John and Mary died in 1857 and are, also,
buried at Bethel Cemetery in West Grove Twp. I'm not sure how early she moved
there there but she and Cornelius were constitutional members of Wesley Chapel
in Wyacondah Twp. in Davis Co.
I hope this affords a couple of clues for you and if I can be of any furthur
help, let me know.

For many years I have wanted to find anyone else who is researching one of
my families in Davis County--the line is Don Carlos. They were in the
Monterey area in the early 1800's and owned land in Davis County. They
intermarried with my Starr family line, but would like to find someone who
is from the Don Carlos line.
In a visit to Davis County a number of years ago, did not find any evidence
of this family. Believe the original couple is buried on their land, but it
has been farmed over now. Does anyone have a suggestion regarding any
possible printed material that might have existed at that time regarding
