I would appreciate some help from someone who lives near Iowa City, Iowa. I
am trying to find a naturalization record for a Peter Croft (Kroft). I have
contacted the Johnson County courthouse and they said the records are very
old and they would not look the information up. But I could have someone come
in and they would let them look at the records. I have purchased a book from
the Iowa Genealogical Society for Naturalization records in Johnson County,
but could not find Peter. I am not sure if the book has all the records so
would like to have someone check.
Peter Croft (Kroft) came to America around 1851/1852 according to the 1900
census. Peter was born 1811 and died in Stark County Iowa in 1901. He was
married to a Mary Ann Beglin who died in 1872 in Osnaburg, Stark County,
Ohio. I believe Peter and maybe Mary Ann came from Germany-France-or
Alsace-Lorraine area. I am not sure what port. Only have the information from
the census of 1900.
If there is anyone willing to help me with this search, please E-Mail me.
Thank you very much.
