Evelina Scully 1 b Jones Co., IA
The Maquoketa Cem. shows a S. Scully (no date)
I did not find a marriage license in Jones Co. for Wilson and Margaret but I
may not be looking for the correct names. Since they are living in Jones
Co., it would seem that they would get married there. However, Edward has
just died (or left). Perhaps they have not yet gotten married. Wilson had
two wives previous to 1885-- Mary A had just died shortly before the 1885
I do not know if Maquoketa, IA, had a newspaper in 1884. It would not be
surprising if they did. An obit would nice for Edward. Of course, Daniel
and Teresa could be buried in the Maquoketa cemetery also.
I do not have access to Jackson Co. records. You need to ask for help on
If you do not get help, please get back to me.

Does anyone on the list have information on a Edward Scully. He is
listed in the 1880 census as living in Madison. The following is the
census information on him.
Edward Scully 25, farm worker, born in IA. parents born in Ireland
Margaret, 20, wife, born in Scotland
Claude 2, born in IA
Leroy 1, born in IA.
I am looking for any information on this family. Edward and Margaret
were my great grandparents. If Edward was not born in Jones county then
I am sure that he would have been born in a neighboring county. Since he
was a farm worker it stands to reason that his parents were farmers. I
am having a very difficult time trying to find who his parents were and
the exact county/township that he was born in.
Thanks for any help that you can provide.

I believe all of the personal histories in the 1910 Jones Co. History are on
the website for Jones County.
On page 262 of the history is a write-up for Michael Foust born in Center
County, PA. on 6/26/1842. His parents, Michael and Maria (Hipple) Foust came
west in 1843, stopping for a time at Dunleath, IL(across the river from
Dubuque, IA. The father died there. The rest of the family moved to Jackson
Co., IA. Also, in Jackson County, Michael's mother remarried to Donald
Livingston and in 1850 moved to Jones Co.
The only reference to Benj. is on page 389 of the 1879 Jones Co. History.
Benj was in the Civil War - Co C 44th IA Inf. Sending for his Civil War
papers would help you determine where he went after the war.
I will check our files to see if anyone else is working on this surname when
I go to the Jones Co. genealogy library on Wednesday.

Michael Foust's wife, Mary Baley, died 03/09/1883 in Scotch Grove.
I'm looking for information on Benjamin and Michael (brothers) FOUST. Their

Michael FOUST, Sr. early 1840's. Any information would be greatly
Chris in Bettendorf, Iowa,
We have a list at the Jones Co. Gen. Soc. library of past reformatory inmates.
W H Dudley died 10/22/1918 at 30 yrs of age. He was #6707 and he came from
Linn County to the prizon after being convicted of forgery(jail term 15 yrs).
There is a photograph on file at the prizon along with some physical
measurements and his fingerprints.
The reformatory will usually provide a copy of what information they have, if
you want to write to them.
The phonebook shows an address:
Iowa State Prison
406 N High St
Anamosa, IA 52205
