Come Visit Lena, Illinois!
Some of you have been following my emails on the Daniel KIMES family
that lived in Big Grove Twp.... actually a couple of Daniel's brothers
ALSO moved to Johnson Co:
Joseph, b. 1818 in PA
Henry, b. 1823 in PA
In 1850, Daniel, Joseph, and Henry KIMES were all living in Kosciusko
Co, IN. Census info lists Daniel, Joseph, and Henry all moving to
Johnson Co ca 1852, followed by their widowed mother, Nancy, in 1853. By
1860, Joseph and Henry were back in Kosciusko Co, along with another
Kimes, Uriah. (Uriah Kimes was living in Johnson Co, IA as early as
1850, but I have yet to identify him as a sibling.) Daniel is NOT listed
on the 1860 Kosciusko Co, IN census and to date has not been found on
ANY 1860 census.
I'd LOVE to hear from ANYONE with a Johnson Co. KIMES in their ancestry
(or anyone interested!)
Thanks, Cindy Kimes
Thanks to some wonderful volunteers providing information to "fill in
the blanks," this is what we now know about Daniel Kimes.
Daniel KIMES, son of Peter and Nancy (Leggett) Kimes, was born ca 1829
in PA, probably in Dauphin Co. His parents moved to Wayne Co, OH in the
early 1830s then moved on to Kosciusko co, IN a couple years later.
The KIMESes were living in Kosciusko Co when Daniel's father died in
1841; his mother was left with a couple sons to help her with the farm.
One by one the boys married and on 17 January 1851, Daniel, the youngest
son, married another Kosciusko Co resident, Mary Leighty.
Records tell that Daniel appeared in IA ca 1852. He settled in Big Grove
Twp, Johnson Co, IA, and by 1856, was listed as a widower. We don't know
when Mary died.
Around 1860 Daniel married Catherine Barta. They continued living in Big
Grove Twp and raised their family which included: Peter, Joseph, Anna,
Helen, Nancy, William, Mary, Frank, Julia, Ida, Lewis, twins Alta and
Adella, and Rudy; all born 1860 - 1885.
From census records we know Daniel and "Katie" were in Big Grove Twp
until at least 1885... possibly they died there.
If anyone notes a familiar name or has an interest in any of those
locations, please send an email. Thanks for your attention.
