Hi list -
Anyone interested in a RollCall for this list?
My great-grandparents came to Lime Springs in 1855 and pre-empted a
quarter section just north of town. Their names were John and Rebecca
Hipes SADLER and they came from Montgomery County, Indiana. They left
Howard County in 1895 but returned to McIntosh, Iowa in 1901 staying
there until 1918.
Other family names for that area - Hipes, Ogg, Bueghly, Winsor, and Martin.

Did you have any luck with your DAVIS question? I might be able to
help a little - there is a book on the History of Lime Springs called
"Lime Springs Then and Now" It is the history of the town from 1854
thru 1868. But the book is not indexed. However looking through the
book I see several different David people mentioned. And I met an
Anna Davis there in 1986. She was probably in her 80's at that time
but very active especially in the history of the area.

Did you find out anything on your Davis question? If not I might be
able to give you some clues. Have you ever found the book "Lime
Springs Then and Now" It is the history of the town from 1854 through
1968. It is not idexed but skimming through the book there is plenty
of Davis people mentioned. And the one Davis person I met from Lime
Springs was Anna Davis, but that was 1986 and she was in her 80s at
that time. Very active and alert though.

I am looking for information on the DAVID T. DAVIS family. I first
located them on the 1880 Albion Twp., Howard County, Iowa Census. David
was born in 1849 in New York, but both of his parents were from Wales.
Also in Howard County in 1880 was a David E. Davis, born 1820 and his wife
Ann, both from Wales. The younger David is still there in 1900. Is
anyone working on these Howard County Davis families? Are these two
David's father and son?
David T. Davis, born 1849 married to Ellen S. from Illinois abt. 1877.
Their children, all born in Iowa: Thomas J. born 1878, Earl H. 1880,
Myrtle M., 1883, Sadie Jane 1885, Hiram 1888 and Della 1891
We are descended from Sadie Jane, who married Fred Boyer. Any help will be
Another question for the list. Where is Albion Township in Howard county
and where is Forest City twp. compared to Albion township?
Dear List Members,
Can someone tell me about the Lime Springs newspaper? In the History of
Howard County I found a notation that the Howe brothers were editors in
1873, but I don't know their first names so can't tell if these are part of
my line of Howes. Does anyone know who the Howe brothers were and do
copies of this early paper still exist?
