Hello, Can anyone please tell me if the 1885 and 1895 IA state census is on line somewhere?
My 2nd great uncles are on the Dickinson Co, Orleans township in both years.
I am looking to find the Frank Twillegar and Gilbert Twillegar families for those years. The spelling may have been Terwillegar.
Any help or suggestions sincerely appreciated.

I am searching for information regarding a fatal railroad accident at Lake Park, Ia. I am sure that accident occurred somewhere between 1880-1908. I believe it most likely occurred between 1885-1887.
Roger Kiley was on that train as it's fireman and was one of the fatalities. He was born near Ackley in Franklin Co., Iowa in 1886 and is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in Ackley with his parents. No death dates are on his head stone or in cemetery records.
Please help if you have any information about a fatal railroad accident near or in Lake Park.
Possibly Orlando Cutter Howe. I have sketchy information about this individual in my family. All I know is that his sister's name was Mary and she married a Weaver. She was the first teacher in Dickinson county and he was a Capt. and his family may have been the first family in Dickinson county according to family history. He also had the first white child born in the county named Robert W Howe and was the first district attorney of the territory according to family history. Mary and Orlando's father's name was John D Howe.
I am not sure of all the above information, as I have just started looking at this line of the family. If any of it sounds familiar, let me know.
