I have been a subscriber to other listservs in tracing my family roots
including Union Co, OH, Dauphin Co, PA, and Morris Co, NJ. But I thought
I would try Davis Co, IA where the previous four generations of Boals
resided since about 1860 when George Mitchell Boal b. 1821 in Union Co,
OH, my gg-gf and his wife Susannah (Mills) Boal b. , later to become
Susannah Small the wife of John Small after Dr. GM Boal's death in 1888,
also of Davis County IA until her death in 1921. Susannah hails from the
famous Long Island, NY George Mills(b. 1605 in Yorkshire England) line
which came to America with wife Rebecca Tanner and lived in Jamaica,
Queens, Long Island NY .
My g-gf was Delmore D Boal (b. 1851 in Elmwood, Knox Co, IL) m. 1881
Venda Small (granddaughter of John Small, , previously mentioned, and
Nancy Kilgore - first wife) b. 1857 was the daughter of Daniel Small b.
1831, who was in the Civil War in Youngs Point, LA where he died of Small
Pox in 1863. Daniel Small's wife may have been named Ferguson. I am
seeking more information on her. She moved to MO after Daniel Small's
Delmore's second wife was Rebecca McLaughlin
My grandfather was Ezra Boal (b. 1891 in Davis Co, IA) m. 1911in Davis
Co, IA Orpha Ollie French b. in 1894 in Davis Co, IA. Orpha parents were
Amos B. French and Mattie Turner. Siblings I know of included Reuben
Eastman French and Eva French. His second wife was Augusta (Gussie)
Some of the other surnames or interest to me in Davis Co, IA include the
Maddy, O'Conner, Rinehart, Baughman, Burton, Reagin, Caudy, Stookesberry,
Gooden, Atheide, Graves, Cossel, Van Horn. Petefish, Jarvis, Pitcher.
Would appreciate any information of potential help or exchange
information as well.
