I am hopeful someone will have the 1870 Iowa Federal census for Henry Co
and can lookup Margaret DUER, pg 205, Center twp. I would like to know
anyone else listed in the household.
Thank you in advance,
My ancestor, Willoughby Mickelwait and his family of ten arrived in Henry
county 1838, he died in 1856, but members of his family lived on in that
area. I am writing an article and would love to add basic historical
information about the county 1838-1860. Would appreciate any help that can
be given. Thanks.

I am sending you off list a jpg formatted partial map of Henry Co.,
IA. It has Mt. Pleasant and the roads West to Rome that will lead you
to Grant Cemetery.
Make sure you get a copy of this map, free, at the Henry Co.
Courthouse. While you are there take note of the two "Roster of
Soldiers from Henry County, Iowa in the War of 1861-1865" bronze plaques
on the second floor outside the Recorder's and Clerk's offices. You
will probably be going there anyway. Also look up at the stained glass
skylight in the center of the lobby. The courthouse is on U.S. 36.

The Mt. Pleasant Public Library has a good genealogical room. The
address is 200 N. Main St. Phone 319-385-1490.
I suggest a trip to the Lwelling House in Salem, South of Mt.
Pleasant. It was a stop on the underground railroad and has a trap door
to the crawl space where they Lwellings hid runaway slaves.
They have several scrapbooks with obituaries, wedding notices, etc. in
the lobby. They also have a collection of old photos of unidentified
people that were donated. Also there are 2 quilts with names
embroidered. One was made to raise funds for a new Methodist Church in
Salem after a fire in 1903. The other quilt has many Quaker names and
others embroidered, made in 1927. There is a list of names for each
quilt. Maybe your ancestors name is on one of these.
I don't live in Henry Co. but visit many times a year and am getting to
know my way around.

My husband and I will be in Henry County IA sometime during the week of Aug.
8-15. I recently received information that there is a GRANT family cemetery
located near Rome, IA that is the resting place of many of my ancestors on my
ggrandfather's (Robert E. Grant son of Harvey Grant and Mary McBride) side of
the family and my ggrandmother's (Mary Ann Ginn daughter of John Henry Ginn
and Clarissa Jane White) side of the family. Can anyone give me specific
directions to that cemetery? We are traveling from Western Oklahoma and will
be visiting Decatur Co for my husbands family, Atha, then Henry Co. for those
mentioned above and Washington Co. for Allen's, Maxwells, Stephens. Much to
do but very excited. Any other advice/info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for a quick response - this is a "spur of the moment - take
the opportunity when it comes" trip.
I have a 2nd cousin that married Inez Garmoe. My dad always said the name
really was DeGarmoe. She was born in Glasgow, Iowa. She passed away in Salem,
Iowa several years ago. She was married to Elwood Leroy Holaday.
I wish I could provide you more information, but the only daughter I know the
location of has always been angry with her mother and did not get along. I
tried to get family information from her several times but she has not given
anything, even birth dates to me.
If this is of any help, let me know and I'll see what else I can dig up.

Several DeGarmo families lived in Henry County, IA in the mid 1800's to
early 1900's. I'm looking to contact the ancestors of these families, as
women change their names when they marry and are difficult to trace. Anyone
who has a connection to a DeGarmo family member no matter how remote I'd
like to hear from you.
Just recently I found some Garmoe families living in Henry County, and I'm
wondering if the Garmoe's are related to the DeGarmo family. Can anyone
