In response to Cheryl Loesch's request for information on the BUTLER
family, I have a little information on the "could be brother" of Henry.
My great aunt Ora Edna ROSS married a Howard Porter BUTLER (no date).
They lived in the Stone City - Viola area of Jones Co. Ora was born in
1879, died 3 May 1941. Howard died 11 Sept 1940 in Viola. They are both
buried in Wilcox Cemetery. Ora and Howard adopted a boy and named him
Joseph. One of the BUTLER men were nicknamed "Butch". If this might be
the brother, I do have a little more information I could share.
I am trying to locate when William and Catherine (Leicy) Ross of
Fairview died. William died between 1870-80 and believe Caroline died
after 1895. Their children were: Rebecca Jane, Mary A. Archibald
(Elizabeth Boyle), Sophie Ellen (Brewer), Catherine J., William H.,
Hannah (Brown), Emma, George W., and James A. Children were born between
1847 and 1866. William may have had a brother, Amos. Any information
would be welcome.
Thanks, Judi Pohorsky (ROSS - BOYLE - KNAKE)

Neil is buried at Holy Cross Cem. in Anamosa and she is now living I believe
in Sioux City?
You know Stone City and Anamosa is like two in one? I also have relatives
born in both as well as Fairview which many times is listed as Anamosa.

Although my gg-grandfather Henry BUTLER, was born in CenterPoint, Linn Co. in
1862, he always told people he was from Stone City. His parents, John BUTLER
and Nancy MITCHELL BUTLER, are buried either in Anamosa or Stone City. The
problem is, my Henry BUTLER didn't say much else, in fact, we didn't know his
parents' names until we got his marriage certificate. Henry may have had a
brother named Howard or Harold. Henry married Eulalia Maddox in Marion, Linn
Co. in 1890. Any other information, clues, leads, etc., will be greatly
appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I am looking for help on information about my ggrandfather and his
ancestors. Lester VanAmberg was born about 1872-1874 in Jones, Marion or
Cherokee county of Iowa. Lester married Lucinda Gadmer in 1899 in Cherokee.
Lucinda was born in 1876 in Jones county and is buried in Silver Creek,
Cherokee county (I believe).
Lester's parents were Benjamin (Lester listed him as Albert) VanAmburg and
Harriet Boots. Benjamin was buried 1895 in Cass cemetery, Marion county (I
believe). I have no death date or death place for Harriet. Benjamin and
Harriet had four other children: William buried 1903 in Washta, Cherokee
county; John buried 1942, Quimby, Cherokee county; Anna who married Robert
Hoon buried 1932 in Sunset View cemetery, Washta; George, death date or
place and Lester, no death date or place, just that he disappeared in
Lester and Lucinda lived in Cherokee. Is there any where to find out if a
divorce or separation was ever filed? Did they do that when people
disappeared in the early 1900s?
Any information or direction on how to find the information on Lester,
Benjamin (Albert), Harriet, William, John, Anna or George would be greatly
