Searching for information on Robert Sylvester Donnelson born about 1859 in
Appanoose County, Iowa. He married Sarah Catharine Plants on 10 September
1877 in Appanoose County, Iowa. By the time of the 1880 census they lived in
Harrison County, Iowa. Robert and Sarah had at least 6 children in Harrison
County, Iowa. About 1899 Robert was involved in a court case and was
sentenced to serve time. He escaped from the train on the way to prison and
disappeared. Sarah and the children continued to live in the Magnolia area.
Sarah died on 4 November 1913 and is buried in the Magnolia Cemetery. What
happened to Robert, where did he go and when and where did he die? Patrice

Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to
"celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out.
A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor
we're totally stumped on. Please be sure to add vital statistics like date
of birth, death, marriage, etc.
Welcome! This is the former Rootsweb list, IAHARRIS. We'll be discussing the history and genealogy of Harrison County, Iowa including the surrounding region of southwestern Iowa and the surrounding counties in Nebraska.
