I am looking for the family of David Halferty and his wife Rhoda J.
(Bales, Martin) Halferty of Liberty Township. I know that they were in
Liberty in 1870 and 1880 census with a few other Halfertys in the area. After
that I lose them. The three children from Rhoda's (aka Jane) first marriage
lived with them. They were Elizabeth A. Martin, who may have gone by Adaline
or some spelling of that name, Matthew M. Martin, who may have gone by Moses,
and Margaret M. Martin, who may have gone by Maggie. Rhoda was first married
to a David Martin and live in Lucas County. I think all the children were
born there in Lucas County. He later moved to Jefferson County and Keokuk
County at different times.
Thanks for any help.
Now that we are over the holidays, This years is our 350th Anniversary of
the landing of the Swartwout family in North America. The name has many
variations such as Swarthout, Swartout, Swartwood, Swathwood, Swarthwood
etc. We need help in gather lines, pictures, articles, wills, what ever you
have stashed in your attic. We would really appreciated it if you shared
with us what you had, there a literally thousands of us here looking for
our roots, looking for connections. For our 350th Anniversary we need to
updated our list of folks out there that are descendants somewhere along the
line of any of those variations. We also have a family newsletter that cost
only $5.00 per year, a real bargain. Just send it your mailing address.
Every day I get e-mail asking me for help. Up here in Canada, there were two
brothers that had huge families, all the remains of their descendants are
the female sides. All the male went back to the States. I'm am the
maintainer of "The Updated Swartwout Chronicles" People submit their
lines-ged-coms etc. and I just drop them into the data base. It is
everyone's database. Each person is responsible for their own submissions.

Would appreciate anyone familiar with or researching the following Hughes family to contact me.
George Hughes born about 1839 in Iowa married Sallie. She was born about 1850 in Iowa. The children that I know of are Maude born abt 1872, Alice Bethany born abt 1873, and Orrel born abt. 1876.
Thank you very much.
Thanks to a wonderful Davis County researcher, Glee Burgher, I just received some information about a Munson family of Lucas County, Iowa. Ray Munson was born in Jul of 1898 in Lucas County.
His parents were August (Per August) Munson and Alice Bethany Hughes. They were married in 1897 in Lucas Co., Iowa. August was born in Sweden, and Alice was born in Iowa.
Alice's parents were George and Sallie Hughes, August's parents were Gustaf Månsson (Munson) and Gustafva Greta Petersdotter (also known as Mary Munson).
August's known siblings, around 1880, were Frans Oscar, Anna Lovisa, Nils Otto and Emma C. Munson. Frans Oscar married Emma Anderson and had at least one son named Carl Oscar Munson.
I would appreciate any additional information or contact from anyone that has other info on this or related families.
Just saw a note on Genforum from a Joanne Gimbel who was looking for Mary G. Monson or Munson with at least six known children. If anyone knows of Joanne or how to contact her, please let me know, as this Munson family is related to me. Thanks very much.
Could someone check the 1900 Census for me? I am looking for two Munson families:
1. Frans Oscar Munson and his wife Emma with at least one son Carl Oscar, who would be five years of age. They were married in 1890 so there may be more children.
2. Peter (Per August) Munson and wife Alice. They were married about 1897 and I don't know of any children.
In 1880 both of these brothers were living with their mother and other siblings in Cedar Twp. but I am not sure if they would still be located in the same Twp. in 1900.
Thank you very much.
