From Julie G...
"1860 census: Honey Creek township, Iowa County IA (where Kozsta is located) - no
extra "k" in that town's name - pronounced "Cost-ah" -
John Hench age 29 born OH
Wife Sarah 24 born IN
Otis age 4 born Iowa
Charles age 2 born Iowa
William Hench age 59 born PA
Wife MARY age 57 born PA
Charles age 17 born OH
Catherine age 16 born OH
Mary E 16 born Iowa
This would indicate a migration from PA to IA via OH.
They are found on the 1856 IA state census as well as the 1870 federal census. Read
township rather than town. In 1850, they are in Marengo IA with oldest son Theodore.
Before Kozsta was named, it was "Hench's Place" or something like that - in
the Iowa Co. history book.
The name Sullenberger is fairly common in central PA as Sollenberger, a Mennonite name.
Look for records in Lancaster, Cumberland, Franklin and Perry counties in PA.
The name Hench also exists in this area of PA today.
The Iowa state census may give you Mary's maiden name by searching for their children
Mennonite or church records in PA may show their marriage.
Google searches indicate an 1827 marriage in Perry Co PA.
Hope this helps - another Julie (JulieG4 A comcast D net) [replace A with @ and D with
