I would like to correspond with someone doing research in Wayne county.
My g-grandfather David Willoughby was born there 1856. His parents were
Hopson and Malinda (or Matilda) Williams Willoughby. It is thought that
Hopson was born in Kentucky 1820, leaving their 1839, settling in Missouri,
but left there and went to Wayne county befoe the Civil War. They may have
returned to Missouri after the war, before settling in Wilson county, Kansas
I just have to report back and share this with you. Yesterday, I had
posted a query about Samuel Matson near the "Stellapolis" post office in
Williamsburg (and Brent Popham was kind enough to give me some great
information). I had Mr. Matson's 1871 diary. Well, using the web last
night, I found a direct male descendant of Samuel Matson in New Mexico
and contacted him by email. The descendant, Bruce Matson, has been
actively researching his family and was particularly interested in his
great-grandfather Samuel. Today, I dropped the diary in the mail to him.
I have the 1871 diary of farmer Samuel Matson of Stellapolis, Iowa.
Stellapolis was apparently very close to Williamsburg, Iowa (or "the City
of Chester," which Mr. Matson generally referred to as "the Burg"). I
assume that, despite its name, Stellapolis may have been a village at
best. Does anyone know where it is, if it still exists, or if it has
My Great Great Grandfather David E Willoughby was born in Wayne Co October
13, 1856 to Hopson and Malinda/Matilda Williams Willoughby. Hopson was
born in Kentucky 1820, but I do not know when he came to Iowa, he is said to
have been in Missouri. I know know nothing about the Williams family. This
family eventually settled in Wilson Co Kansas. Hope this sounds familiar
I am looking for descendants of George W Goings born 12/25/1818 in Ohio
and in Iowa Co. at least 1850 until he died 10/21/1903. He is buried in the
Titler Cemetary north of Marengo along with his 2nd wife Mary Jane, who was
born 12/1/1834 and died 3/10/1901. George's 1st wife was Susannah who was
born about 1828 and died 8/31/1859. George and Susannah had children Nancy
born 1849, Barbara (Johnson) born 1854, and Amanda born 1859. George and Mary
Jane had children George born 1861, Ida May (Scott) born 1863, Nettie
(Trimble), born 1869, John born 1873, and Anna (Brown) born 1878.
The married names of the daughters are in parenthesis where I know them.
Does anyone know what happened to the children and their descendents?
