their lives in the War in Vietnam alone.

Appreciate any help

Following is from Ancestry's Red Book:
Henry Co birth and death records were not kept until 1880, though
marriage records were sometimes kept from 1836. Iowa prefers you collect
records from after July 1, 1880 from the State archives. For the Henry
Co marriages prior to that, you can write to the Clerk of Courts at
Mount Pleasant, IA 52641.
Iowa Department of Public Health has information on-line for ordering
records from the state at http://www.idph.state.ia.us/pa/vr.htm
As for Fairfield, that's in Jefferson Co, Iowa. I don't have any
research to do there, but I took a quick peek around, but didn't find
any on-line records for them. Perhaps someone else who's researching
there can answer that question.
Good luck to all and happy searching!

I am searching for info on my Ggrandfather, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN BAILEY. I
think he was born in Henry Co, IA, but not sure. Would anyone out there
with access to any kind of records for the years 1850 to 1860, look through
them? Benjamin F Bailey was born Feb 10, 1853 in IA. His father is listed
on death cert as Wiiliam Bailey.
On July 26, 1875 he married Millie Banks in Bazaar, KS. His first two
children were born there.
For some reason, I just can't get a line on Ben. Some one found his
name on a census record, I think for 1860, in Henry Co., IA. I am hoping
it is my Ggrandfather!!
Would gladly $$ for copies, if some one can help me with this
Thanks to all for your time!!!!
I recently discovered this death notice for a family member that appeared in the Gospel Herald (Mennonite publication). How can I obtain the obituary that appeared in the local paper? What library in Henry County might have obituaries for Wayland from 1914?
