I'm looking for any information on Francis Curtis, b. 11 Dec 1844 d. 23 Dec
1866 she is buried in the Ragtown Cem. Lucas county,IA. Francis married Joseph
Reed Morris 4 Sept 1861 in Lucas,IA. After Francis died Joseph married Martha
Larimer the Daughter of Hugh Larimer and Nancy Mcklveen. Hugh Larimer 2nd wife
was Harriett Weaver. Hugh larimer was the son of Hugh Larimer and Nancy
Mcdowell. The Larimer's came from Ireland to Pa. and about 1850 came to
Chariton, Luacs, IA. and remained there until their deaths. I need the parents
of Joseph R. Morris and Francis Curtis. Anyone that has ties to Larimer,
Morris,Curtis,Mcklveen and Mcdowell in Lucas county,Iowa I would really love
to hear from you. Shelley Wayne
Here are my othet WILLEY names in Lucas county, Please check if they are
Harvey T. Willey
N. T. Willey
Allie (Alice) L. Willey
Fannie (Frances) Willey
Hattie (Harriet) O. Willey
My name is Daffy Alexander and my interest in Lucas Co., IA is
concerning my gggrandparents. William B. (possibly Burton)
SHEPARD (b. 1822) and Matilda VAN DUSEN (b. 1823) were married
in Coshocton Co., OH in 1844.
Sometime in the next six years they moved to Lucas Co., IA. There
they appear on the 1860 census with four children, all born in IA.
George, Ebenezer (ED) Emily, and Mary Bertha. Also on the census
with them is a Gabella SHEPARD age 56. I thought perhaps she was
William's mother. NO proof.
After one more child, Margaret, they moved to MO. There, their
last child William B. was born. They appear on the 1870 census in
Carroll Co., MO. I know William B. was a brick mason by trade. He
also farmed. Both he and his wife and at least two of their children
are buried in Oakhill Cemetery in Carroll Co., MO.
I am at a dead end here and would appreciate any help.

My 2nd great-grandfather Solomon Hickman (Heckman) b. 1826 VA m. Louisa Evans b. 1827 IN and came to Lucas Co. in 1849. 24 June 1849 Solomon purchased 160 acres of land in Washington Twp from the federal government who had just opened up this territory for sale to settlers. His was the 206th family to purchase land in the county.
2 Sep 1854, Solomon mortgages the property to Peter Gittinger.
7 Sep 1855, Solomon satisfies the above mortgage.
1858 - 21 May, Solomon sells the above land to Martha Ann Woodruff for $1200, recorded 22 Sept 1858.
24 June 1849 Louisa's father Robert Evans also buys land, close to Solomon Hickman, in Monroe Co., Jackson Twp.
Louisa's Uncles, John C. and William Evans also move into the area near Solomon and Robert.
Would appreciate hearing from anyone related to these folks.
