Overall, there are quite a few Williams people in this area. You might
consider calling the library and talk to Dana there and ask for copies
of all the index cards. Have her copy them on legal size with as many
as possible on one sheet. Shouldn't cost too much.
I did that for many of my family members and received a wealth of info.
I just cut them up into 3x5 sizes and filed them. I'm able to sort
them, etc. You will be amazed at what you will find on each card.
The Gen Soc lib has a vast number of these index cards, and basically
what is on them was transferred into their published books. But, I've
found more info on the cards at times, than what was printed in the
books. It was worth getting the cards copied.
Give them a call. 515 429 3362 1-6 PM M, T, W and 9-11AM Thurs

Since you were able to find a newspaper abstract in Guthrie Co. Gen. Soc. for
Amanda Lane I wonder if you could find one for Manerva Williams who died in
I don't have and exact date so if it isn't index it might be to much to ask
for. Also Isaac Williams died in 1900 and I don't know if Guthrie Center had
a newspaper then or not. Would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks.
Looked up the cite for her death in Jan 1933 in the newspaper abstracts
that were published by Guthrie Co Gen Soc in 1988
on pg 6

(or Cimmer). any info would be helpful. lisa shelton
Thanks to a very nice lady doing lookups in Guthrie County I just learned
where Isaac, his 2nd. wife and daughter, Amanda Lane is buried. She not only
showed me where he is buried but telling me he was also in the Civil War.
What great news this all is. Would still like to hear from anyone who is
related to the family.
Thanks for your time.
I am new to the list and I am in need of help since I have hit a big brick
wall. I am looking for information on Isaac Williams and his daughter Amanda
Isaac Williams lived in Mason County during the 1850 census then he left that
county for nearly ten years when he moved back to Mason County. In 1880 they
lived in Edna, Cass co. Iowa and by 1900 they were in Guthrie County, Iowa.
Did Isaac die in Guthrie County. His daughter Amanda Lane died in Guthrie
Center the 21 of Jan 1933. What happened to Amanda's children,did any of them
stay around Guthrie Center? Amanda was married to Richard Lane from Mason
County, Illinois. Did Richard die in Guthrie Center?
Would be glad to share what little I have. Thanks.
