I want to say a great big Thank You to all who responded to my post. I received a lot of very good information that I needed and will be used. I saved EVERY one of them for reference and will answer each of you privately as time permits. Some will receive more lengthy answers as there are some family connections.
However, my husband finished my kitchen and I get to move everything into the new one. Have been living with a make-shift kitchen for 5 months and want to get this done before I go to Iowa.
Thanks again to all, you have been great, and some of you are previous contacts that helped me in the past.
ps: now when I try to send this, my server won't sent it. Email isn't what it used to be. I'll try again later.
I am seeking any information for John McKiernan (sometimes spelled
McKernan). He was born in 1795 in Ireland and died in Henry Co, Iowa in
1878. I am specifically trying to find where in Ireland he was from.
He was married at least 2 times. One wife was Joanna (?) in 1818 and the
other Phoebe Taylor Ball in 1833.
The first union produced a son, Patrick and the second union produced
Urana, Joanna, John, Lucy, Polly and James.
Any additional info would be wonderful.
Hello, Iw as wondering if anyone knew how far back the land records
went at the Henry County Court House. Would they go back to the first
settler? I was wondering if there might be a record of land purchased
as far back as 1841. If anyone knows the answer please email me. I
would also like the address of the Court House or the Genealogical
Society to request for the help of obtaining copies of those records.
Thanks so much. Jene
I'm hoping to make a genealogical visit to Henry Co, Iowa, and need advice.
1. I've never been there before; when is the best time? Is Sept.
tornado time? And type of clothing to take.
2. I have Mount Pleasant in mind for being the central town to stay as
most of the family was in that area.
3. Paternal side was mostly of Quaker faith, migrating from Indiana.
4. I'm in need of records pertaining to the 1800's; names of old
5. Libraries? Which and where are best for research? Are Des Moines &
Iowa City the only vital ones?
I have wanted to do this for years, and not getting younger. I thought
perhaps flying into Mount Pleasant, rent a car, and just look up records,
visit cemeteries, mortuaries, and see some of the country my family came
from. Would be curious to know why they chose to leave Iowa. Perhaps my
journey would enlighten me.
Researching: (mainly) HOLADAY, LAMM, DENNY, LEE, LONG, FRAZER also:
CORNWALL, WOODY, Cranston, Ridley, Voris, Soper, Woodman, Watson

Someone gave me this tip long ago. Contact a mortuary in the town
closest to the cemetery and ask them who keeps the records for the
cemetery. The mortuary needs to know because they deal with these people
all the time. Even if it is an abandon cemetery, a mortuary that has
been in business for a long time will probably know who has the cemetery
To get the name and phone number for the mortuary, contact a mortuary in
~your~ town and ask them to look up it up for you. They have a book
containing information on funeral homes all over the U.S. (There is also
a site on the I-net but I'm having problems getting connected tonight so
I can't look up the URL for you.)
Hello to All of you,
I have just gotten home froma family history excursion of the Hathaways
that moved to Union and Rinngold Co from Henry Co. I discovered that
there dad David Hathaway stayed and died in Henry Co. He died May
1881. I am not sure where he was buried I do have a census that puts
the family in New London Township. I was wondering if anyone has
information on this Hathway. His wife's name was Sarah Hull.
They had a son named Albert F. Hathway who married a Semantha Smith or
Franklin in 1861. I was wondering if somebody knew if she was buried
there in Henry Co. or new of this marriage. She died in 1863 in the
Spring due to an illness.
Thanks for any information you can share on this. Jene
Dear List members,
We have now completed eighty Illinois County Family History Links on our
website. We will make further updates as we receive more church records,
which is a constant ongoing task. We are now in the process of entering
the same type of data, church history and family surnames of members
information, for counties in Iowa and Wisconsin, and have already entered
the information we have for the county lists we are sending this message
to. We have the research either complete or well underway for Nebraska,
Kansas, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, but in Missouri, Kentucky, and
Indiana, we have a great deal more original research work to do, and
will appreciate help from anyone who knows of the existence of Primitive
Baptist church records or membership lists for those states.
Here are the website addresses:

for several states):

Can you please help me clarify something? There are several cemeteries
in Trenton Twp, Henry Co. IA. Are the correct names: Old and New
Richwood (no "s") or Richwoods, with an "s" on the end?
I believe Richwoods was a Methodist Church, correct?
Thanks for any enlightenment!
