Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I think it would be great if this list could become more active and I hope it
would be great if Kathleen could
adopt it. I live in Scott county, but so many of my ancestors were from
Johnson and Iowa county.
My names are: Fitzgerald, Crosson, Spratt, McGillicuddy, Lyle, etc.
Sincerely, Dorothy Hopper
I don't think is anyone who's adopted it yet. I've seen nothing to indicate

I am thinking of adopting this Iowa Mailing list along with several
other Iowa county lists and am wondering if there is someone already
taking care of it un-officially. If there is, then I will pass this one
I am on a crusade today to try to break through my brick wall on my Campbell
line. Since I am lacking important first name and a maiden name, I have not
been able to get any farther. So I am hoping that someone on the list may
have information on these Campbells.
Father ???? Campbell
Mother Bertha (Maiden name?) Campbell b abt 1802 VA
Were in OH (county unknown) in 1826 when daughter Jane born.
1828 in IN when daughter Rosannah born
1830 in IN James W born
1832 IN (maybe Rush Co) Susan Dorcas born
1834 IN Nathaniel born
1837 IN John Fuller born
1839 IN Alexander B born
1840 IN Martecia born
1843 IA Artemissa born
Have not been able to trace by census because they keep falling through the
cracks. In 1840 census they only list head of household and I do not know
fathers first name and am not certain of county. Possible Rush Co. In 1850
census, mother Bertha was in Johnson county Iowa with children, but was then
a widow so again fathers name not known.
In 1870 Johnson Co census Bertha (age 68) is in Jefferson Tnsp with AB
Campbell and daughter Martecia.
Daughter Jane married Joseph Peninger
Rosannah married Joseph Frazee
James W married Nancy Hall
Susan married D W Henderson
Alexander married Martha Oestricher
Martecia married John C Fish
Is there anyone who can help me find mother Bertha's maiden name and father
Campbells furst name??? I am stumped. I would love to meet someone
connected to this line!
Thanks. Appreciate any help.
My name is Gary James and I am seeking the family of William BARNHART b. circa 1885 in Clinton Co. and who was living in the Oxford, Johnson Co., IA area in 1927 at the time of his brother's death. -- His brother, Urban, was my wife's grandfather and I am seeking any info I can find on their family.
Thanks in advance for any assist.
