As a new subscriber, I would appreciate some guidance and assistance to
find the family of my father-in-law.
Christopher George LANE was about 16 or 17 when his family immigrated from
England around 1919-1920. While his parents and sister remained in New
Jersey, Christopher was sent to an Illinois ranch to work for relatives.
His stay was brief for he ultimately returned to New Jersey, married and
raised his family.
The purpose of this query is to find the KING family of Iowa whom we
believe were relatives of Christopher's grandmother Jennie KING.
Jennie KING, born about 1852 in England and married David Reynolds
FULYARD/FULYERD in 1872 in Henry County Iowa. David & Jennie had two
children born in East Moline, Illinois: 1] Frank Fulyard, b. abt. 1874; 2]
Harriet Elizabeth Fulyard, b. 7/28/1876 (Christopher's mother).
Jennie KING's brother, John KING, was born 12/1857 in England, emigrated in
1872 and was naturalized in 1889; he married Etta and had a son Harry D.
KING born 12/1883 in Henry County Iowa. ETTA KING was widowed by 9/11/1940
when she attested to the birth of Harriet Elizabeth FULYARD as the daughter
of her late husband's sister, in Henry County Iowa.
This is the full extent of the information we have on the KING family. I
would so much appreciate hearing from any Iowa KING researchers who might
lead me to this family. Thanks for your kind consideration.
