I checked the 1856 state census for Jackson co.: Franck Clinesmith 54
marr. occup carpenter. Sophia 45 marr, Ann 15, Caroline 7, Julia 9,
Dianna 5. All born Germany and living in Iowa 4 years. This is the
only Clinesmith family I found. I found Edward Berendes 27 occup
farmer born Germany living Iowa 4 years. It indicates he was
naturalized. Living with Arnold Reiling family. Arnold 33 marr from
Ger. in Iowa 19 years. Mary 30 marr from Ger in Iowa 10 years.. Mary
Jr. 8, Christinia 5, Elizabeth 1. Children born Iowa. Sorry I don't
know anymore. Maybe you can get a copy of a naturalization if it was
Jackson co. Hope these are the right people.Peggy

I'm really impressed by how much progress people are making on this list!
Here's my puzzle: I'm looking for traces of Michael Boyle of Butler
Township, who married Ellen Howe. Both were from County Clare, and I've
tracked down Ellen pretty well. Michael is more of a question mark. I've
found him in the 1860-1880 censuses, but I'm looking for any additional
information that would tie him to other family members or a more precise
place of origin. They were married at Sinsinawa Mound, Wis., the good
sisters there have found the notation in their records, but there's no civil
record. There's a John Boyle listed as a witness to the wedding, so that's a
tantalizing lead I haven't been able to follow any further.
Just for fun I've tried looking in the 1856 state census, but it doesn't
seem as if Butler Township is listed in the '56 microfilm. I'm not sure if
that's an omission from the particular microfilm I'm looking at, or if
Butler was just passed over that year.
Michael and Ellen's death certificates are on file in Dubuque County. There
were other Boyles in Butler County (Daniel and Thomas), but they were
apparently not related. I've checked baptismal records for Michael and
Ellen's children, nothing so far, but a couple of the children (e.g., first
son, also named Michael) don't seem to be listed at Garryowen St. Patrick's.
So I think I'm pretty much at the end of the line. But if anyone has further
leads, I'd much appreciate hearing from you.
All the best.... Alan Boyle
