Thanks for caring enough to inquire. There's much yet to be done to this
page; this was my guinea pig, learning how to use Adobe's PageMill, as
opposed to the simplistic Publish 1-2-3 (AOL provided). That wasn't so bad;
it was the uploading to AOL's Home Town which has a search engine. I still
don't know what I did wrong in the first place, but it fixed itself and now
we are there. (We hope -- if you have trouble again, let me know. Thanks!)

Above name buried at Steamboat Rock cemetery along with wife
Elizabeth, looking to verify his father's name.
George Van Note owned a hotel in Sheffield, IA. Buried at Steamboat
Rock cemetery along with his wife Elizabeth and William R. Van Note b.1841 d.
1919(possibly his nephew). Trying to find name of George S. father. Do you
have data on any Van Notes in Hardin.
Those homesteads aren't located in Iowa. Iowa's northwestern-most
township, located in Lyon County, is 100N, 49W. Based on some rough
guess-timates I figured they were in South Dakota somewhere. After dinking
around on the web for a while I just picked up the phone and called the
South Dakota Geologic Survey.
Those parcels are located in Aurora County five miles north and three miles
west of Plankinton, South Dakota.
Tricia, who thinks it is rather bizzare that while I was using a township
map of Hardin County your email crossed my desk.

I have Cyrus M. Runkle from Eldora, Hardin Co., listed in 1870 census. He
had "patents" for homesteading land in the following areas:
5 Meridian Twp 104N Range 064W Section 20

Can anyone tell me where in IA this is? Or how I can find out where this
is? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Gay Hoffman

I haven't posted for a while, so here we go:
In addition to the family info below, I am also wondering if anyone knows
about a stagecoach line that ran thru Tipton Grove (Tipton Township, north of
Hubbard). When we visited a few years back, someone mentioned he thought the
Cady land had been a stagecoach stop.

Prattsburg, Steuben Co, went to Michigan, then Iowa; m. 11 Oct. 1848 to Olive
Bradford PRESCOTT, b. 24 Apr 1825, Newport, Penobscot Co., Maine, went to
Chicago (where she met P.P on a business trip, went back with him to
Residence in Iowa was Tipton Grove (no longer exists) in Hardin Co.. Perley
was the acting postmaster, altho no official records are kept on acting
postmasters, only official postmasters. Then Hubbard became the official post
office for the area. Both Perley and Olive are buried in Hubbard, along with
their unmarried son. (And Perley's name on the headstone is incorrect!)

while in Union IA, moved to South Dakota.

have gotten the impression that the couple migrated to Oregon. They had nine
4. Jessie A., b. 11 Oct. 1859, m. John Polk HAZARD 27 Nov. 1885, lived on his
land in Lawn Township, Box Butte Co., Nebraska, divorced 1901. Their three
children: Mabel Olivia (did she perhaps go with J. J. to Oregon?), Maude
Isma (went to live with Aunt Ella, married J. D. Blake, had three children
living in North Dakota), Clarence Cady (lived with Jessie and stepfather,
Arby Mealman, then with Uncle Frankin Hubbard,in Hubbard; m. 1921 to Albia
FOX [Fuchs] of Iowa City; degree in pharmacy, had a drugstore in Bettendorf,
IA; they had one child, my husband).
5. Frank Prescott, b. 11 Oct. 1859, m. 14 Feb. 1887 to M. Luella BROOKINGS,
lived for a time in Nebraska, same area as Jessie; had three babies die in
the same month; they moved back to Iowa; had two more children; lived in
Hubbard where he had a public scales (?) business. Clarence lived with him
because there was a high school available. Frank "lost his business so he
went to Missouri where he died." [Would love to find out where since the
only previous connection with MO is that is the state where Jessie's husband,
J.P. Hazard, lived before going to NE].
Also when we visited the area, someone in Hubbard mentioned some vague
reference about "the old Cady house.' Of course, this was just when we were
ready to leave town and on a tight schedule (we live in CA), so we didn't
have time to follow up on it. I've written to the undertaker in Hubbard, but
he chose not to answer my letter. (When I had spoken to him on the phone
earlier, he was very nice. He was able to tell me when the family cemetary
plat was purchased.)

The name Runkle sounds familiar but perhaps I'm only dreaming. I'll check my
Reep files as they were also in Eldora area and let you know for sure.
