A very distant relative sent me a copy of a page from what appears to be
a newspaper called "Lone Tree Reporter" dated 24 Apr 1908. I'm trying
to determine WHEN a relative's child died. The little info on the child
states she was buried last Saturday. Can anyone tell me when the paper
was published, which day of the week?
Thanks. Cindy Kimes
Four of Peter and Nancy Kimes's sons lived in Johnson Co, IA at one time
or another. The first son to move to the County was Uriah Kimes and his
wife, the former Nancy Cross. They were in Johnson Co when the 1850
census was taken.
Joseph Kimes, Henry Kimes, and a younger brother, Daniel Kimes, all
arrived in Johnson Co ca 1852. They moved to the County from Kosciusko
Co, IN. Nancy, their mother, moved to Johnson Co, IA ca 1853 and lived
with her youngest son, Daniel. His wife, Mary Leighty had died, leaving
him with a young son. Possibly Nancy moved to the County to help Daniel
care for his young child.
Joseph, Henry, and Uriah and their families all returned to Indiana
before 1860. We find them listed on the 1860 census for Kosciusko
County. Daniel appears to have remained in Iowa where he married
Catherine Barta in Johnson County in 1859. He spent the rest of his life
in the County, dying there in 1906.
Uriah later returned to Iowa and spend his remaining years in and around
Morfordsville, Pleasant Valley and Lucas Twps. Joseph returned to Iowa
before 1869, but moved on to Adair County, where he married Mrs. Emeline
Harrington, widow of Civil war soldier, Bradley A. Herrington.
Most of Uriah's descendants remained in Johnson Co. Uriah's descendants
include the surnames ABBY, BARNES, LEHMAN, LEWIS, McNAMER, and WILDMAN.
Some of Daniel's descendants migrated to Linn Co, IA; surnames include
BEATTY, DENTER, HORSKY, LEHMAN, and SHUSTER.
Interested in sharing data with anyone that is related.
Someone emailed me stating the URL must be wrong. That is a good link; I
used it yesterday.
Checking this morning, it doesn't work. Did a search on GOOGLE and found
the site is listed on Cyndi's list, with an alternate URL:
Mobile Genealogical Society, The News Stand from the Mobile Genealogical
Society, an international list of Genealogical Columns that appear in
Try that one!

Is there anyone on this list with access to the 1885 state census info?
I'm looking for Peter AND Joseph Kimes, sons of Daniel Kimes of Big
Grove Twp, Johnson Co, IA. Both Peter and Joseph were living w/their
parents in 1880, but by 1885, they are NOT with the family.
Peter, b. 1859 IA, oldest known child b. 1887 IA.
Joseph, b. abt 1861 IA, oldest known child b. 1885 IA.
Joseph MAY possibly have been in Crawford Co, IA by 1885, but Peter
settled in Linn Co, IA.
Any help greatly appreciated.
We've discovered Margaret was a dau of Peter Kimes of Linn Co, IA. These
KIMESes connect to my husband's family through Daniel Kimes of Big Grove
Twp, Johnson Co, IA.

Turns out this Margaret Kimes connects to Daniel KIMES that lived in Big
Grove Twp, Johnson Co, IA. We found two BEATTY children living
w/Margaret's parents in 1920.
Daniel was her grandfather.

DANIEL KIMES (son of PETER) was born September 1827 in Dauphin Co, PA,
and died 1906 in Johnson Co, IA. He married (1) MARY LEIGHTY 17 January
1851 in Kosciusko Co, IN, believed to be the daughter of JOHN LEICHTY
and CATHERINE BAKER. She was born 1833 in OH, and died Bef. 1857. He
married (2) CATHERINE BARTA 13 April 1859 in Johnson Co, IA. She was
born December 1839 in Bohemia, and died in 1920.
DANIEL KIMES's estate records list a son, WILLIAM KIMES, from a prior
marriage. We assume MARY LEIGHTY was William's mother as we know of no
other marriage for Daniel.
Children of DANIEL KIMES and CATHERINE BARTA are:
ii. PETER N.3 KIMES, b. 1860, IA; d. Aft. 1920;
m. MAGGIE //; b. 1867, IA.
iii. JOSEPH A. KIMES, b. 1861, IA; d. Aft. December 1906;
m. EMMA SCHUPATAR, 11 November 1884, Johnson Co, IA;
d. Bef. 10 September 1961.
iv. ANNA KIMES, b. 1862, Johnson Co, IA; d. 1921;
m. // LEHMAN, Bef. October 1904.
v. HELEN L. KIMES, b. 1865, IA; d. 1925; m. // HORSKY.
vi. NANCY KIMES, b. 1867; m. // SNYDER, Bef. October 1904.
vii. MARY RACHEL KIMES, b. 20 July 1869, Johnson Co, IA;
d. 28 February 1934, Cedar Rapids, Linn Co, IA;
m. JOHN EDWARD SHUSTER, 23 August 1893, Cook Co, IL.
viii. WILLIAM M. KIMES, b. 1870, Johnson Co, IA.
ix. FRANK JOHN KIMES, b. 1872, Johnson Co, IA;
d. Aft. 1920.
x. JULIA KIMES, b. 1874, Big Grove Twp, Johnson Co, IA;
m. ADOLPH DENTER, Bef. October 1904.
xi. IDA KIMES, b. 1877, Big Grove Twp, Johnson Co, IA;
m. J. V. STASNEY, bef. October 1904.
xii. LOUIS KIMES, b. 1879, Big Grove, Johnson Co, IA;
d. Aft. 21 September 1904.
xiii. ALTA KIMES, b. August 1881, Johnson Co, IA.
xiv. CLARENCE KIMES, b. October 1883, Johnson Co, IA;
d. Aft. 1930; m. HATTIE // ca 1915.
Two others that MAY be Daniel's children are:
ADELLA KIMES, b. 1882, Johnson Co, IA.
RUDOLPH J. KIMES, b. 1885, Johnson Co, IA.
Both are listed in his household on an 1885 IA State census. They are of
ages to "fit" between births of other children. BUT, so far we've found
NO other mention of them. So these two MAY have been grandchildren.
We've found several of these family members buried in the Bohemian
(Czech) National Cemetery in Cedar Rapids, IA, and imagine more of the
descendants moved to Linn Co.

REMARKABLE JOHNSON COUNTY FAMILY
An event of much more than ordinary interest is being celebrated this
week in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kimes, who reside in the edge of
Johnson County, twelve miles south of the city - the first complete
reunion of the family of thirteen children. All but three of the
children reside near the vicinity in which they were born. The thirteen
assembled at the family home last Sunday, it being the first time in
their lives that all had gathered under the parental roof. The reunion
has continued throughout the week, the children living at a distance
taking their departure today. On Tuesday the entire family came to Cedar
Rapids for the express purpose of being photographed. The result of the
photographers art is shown herewith. After being photographed the family
adjourned to the scales, where the fifteen tipped the beam at 2,780
pounds. Besides the thirteen children, Mr. and Mrs. Kimes have
twenty-eight grandchildren and one great grandchild.
The names and addresses of the children are as follows:
P.N. Kimes, Cedar Rapids;
J.A. Kimes, Moneta, Iowa;
