I am planning to visit Estherville, IA the spring or summer of the year 2000.
I want to see the school (if it still exists) where my mother, Dorothy Hall,
attended 2nd grade
in 1918-1919 and the first term in the fall of 1919. The name of the school
was "Jackson Building."
Could anyone tell me where it was located and if it is still there?
My grandfather, Joseph B. Hall, worked thereabouts for the Rock Island Rail
Road as a Freight Agent.
I would be interested in looking at a "City Directory" to see if he would
have been listed as having lived there. Does a city or county directory for
the years 1918, 1919,1920, exist?
Is there a historical society that we might visit?
Any information would be appreciated.

My great grandfather was Adam Anderson, a very well-to-do farmer in
Estherville, Emmet county. He came to Iowa from Denmark at the age of 16. I
am still looking for his parents and/or siblings. I think he might have left
them behind in Denmark. He married Kristena Peterson. They had four farms
near Estherville. My grandmother was their sixth child. I would like to
hear from anyone that might have something to share about this family,
stories or whatever. I have most of that family line plus pictures.

My name is Janet Young Berkson and I am the new listowner for Emmet
county. I am also the Emmet county IAGenWeb Coordinator.
I am very new to this listserv ownership business so please bear with me
as I learn. There has been very little traffic on this list thus far.
That's probably due to several reasons, but even so, I don't expect this
will be a list with a tremendously large volume of messages.
One of the first things I will do is advertise this list's existence on
other appropriate listserves as well as making a note on the Emmet
county page. Hopefully this will get us a few more subscribers and help
us all with our research.
I am not local to Emmet county, I'm 1050 miles away, so I can't provide
much help with things requiring a local response. Nonetheless, I have
been able to gather a lot of info on Emmet county and hopefully will be
able to share.
My primary surnames of interest are YOUNG and CHRISTIANSON.
So fellow list members, let's hear from you and about your Emmet county

I am doing a one name study on the name COVEY. If anyone has run
across any of these folks I would certainly appreciate hearing from
My direct line goes back to 1639 in Braintree, Massachuttes. I'm now
trying to fatten the tree and perhaps add a little color.
Thanks in advance for your efforts.
