Iowa began keeping records in 1880, but not every one filed deaths, etc.
I live in FL, but am going to Mahaska Co. in May and will be glad to see
if your Wm. is listed there.

Does anyone know what enumeration district Givin, IA was in for the 1910 and
Also, is there anyone else out there using the Images Online feature of
Ancestry.com? I am finding the use sometimes very useful and other times
frustrating because they don't have the enumeration districts accurately
labeled. For example, the have District 96 of the Mahaska County 1920 Census
labeled Oskaloosa township when, in fact, it is actually White Oak Township.
I am seeking descendants of William Henry Stoddard in Oskaloosa. Wm. lived in Kansas City, Kansas, but died in Oskaloosa on Sept. 29, 1892, at age 68. I assumed he went there for brief care from a relative while terminally ill, maybe for only a few weeks or less. Wm. was returned to KC for burial. I believe his death pre-dated Iowa State vital statistic records. It might be helpful if I could get a lead on area funeral homes, county records or newspapers of a century ago.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
I am looking for any information on the above family. In 1870 Mahlon Lappin
was living with his mother, Elizabeth and his sister Sarah in New Sharon.
Mahlon went onto Kansas by 1880. They had previously, 1860, been living in
Wapello, Co. Iowa, in Eddyville. The father, Samuel, had been alive at that
In 1850 the family was living in Washington Co., Ohio and consisted of
Samuel, age 40, Elizabeth, age 43, Sarah, age 16, Alice, age 12, George, age
11 and Mahlon, age 7. George went off to the Civil War after being with
family in 1860. Alice is not listed in 1860. Thus either Alice died or was
married. Sarah is not in the 1880 census as a Lappin so perhaps she also
married. Sarah is listed as a school teacher in the 1870 New Sharon census.
Thanks for any help that can be given. Jerilyn
