City Directories 1916 or shortly thereafter - Iowa City
Looking for a Hazel Spencer who taught school in 1916. If anyone local is
going to the Iowa City library - could you please look for her? She was the
daughter of a Hart Spencer. Hart Spencer married an Ionia Nelson - being a
Nelson descendant, I'd sure like to connect with family...
Thanks in advance for any help. Karen Nelson Hangsleben (TX)
I am looking for information about Charles Kane. He was probably born in
the University Hospital in 1935-36.
Does anyone know if at that period of time, if births were announced in the
Iowa City papers or if hospital records are available anywhere (again for
that period of time)?
About two months ago, a distant relative made contact by email and we've
been sharing info on our common ancestor, Peter Kime(s), b. 1780-1790.
She has discovered information previously unknown, and now we're in the
middle of reviewing everything we've collected to date to see if Peter's
given lineage is valid. Which brings me to the point of this email....
evidence on this newfound relative:

In researching Peter and Nancy, we knew from census records that there
was another son, but had no information offering clues his identity. I
kept "running into" this Uriah Kime(s) in some of the same locations as
other sons of Peter and Nancy. This Uriah was of the "right" age, but no
one had found anything to link him to the family until now. His name is
listed as an heir on a property document along with their seven other
children. This Uriah was born around 1820 in PA, too old to be Peter and
Nancy's grandchild; he must be another son.
Uriah KIMES and his wife, the former Nancy Cross, eventually settled in
Morfordsville, IA after living in Johnson Co, IA for several years
during the 1850's. So if anyone is looking at this family group, maybe
the above will help. Not ALL the above has been verified, but anyone
working on this line should recognize the family from what's listed. And
if you do, please write!
P.S. Would also like to hear from anyone with a Uriah KEIM/KIME/KIMES,
etc. in their family tree. This given name MAY be another clue to "our"
Peter Kimes's ancestry.
