Yes, they have some marriage records that early. I found one for 1866.
You should contact the Keo-Mah Gen. Soc. & ask if they will look in their
marriage index. I doubt there were newspaper articles saved from then,
but to make sure ask.
You can also contact the library about newspapers at:

I have a marriage that took place in November (19), 1868 in Mahaska
Couty for Abraham HUNT and Martha HOWARTH. This is the second
marriage for both of these people.
I know that Iowa had some great marriage applications by 1880, at least
in some counties, but was there anything as early as this marriage? I need
to find out if there is mention of Martha being widowed or divorced.
Might there be a newspaper article about the marriage?
martha and her husband James come over from England between 1865-
1867. She has a daughter in Ia in June of 1867, and she is married to
Abraham by November of 1868. My great Grandmother is product of the
first marriage and I'd like to find out what happened to her dad.

looking for information on my family members (Elisha D. and Elijah W. Chew),
I went ahead and copied everything I came across for the other Chew family
members. I may have this census info already--I will check and get back

I am seeking a lookup in the 1850 Census of Mahaska Co. for the family of Rev. Nathaniel CHEW (b.1786 NJ). I believe that he may be living in the Oskaloosa area.
I have him in the 1830 census of Gloucester Co., NJ, not sure when he moved to Mahaska Co., IA. I have his death date as January 24, 1866 Mahaska Co., IA.
I know that there were other members of the CHEW family in the area.

Subject: [MORANDOL-L] Holloway family cemetery discovered

This was in Tues, 8 May, Springfield MO News Leader, p. 5B:
Discovery of cemetery halts roadwork--Associated Press-Kansas City--
Construction of a new highway in south Kansas City has been halted by
the discovery of a small cemetery dating back to the Civil War era.
State officials are anxious to find any descendants of the Holloway
family who are bured in the cemetery. If the heirs can't be found, the
state will have to get court permission to move the nine graves in the
plot, in order to finish a new Missouri 150.
Construction workers recently unearthed a marble headstone, dating
from 1858, while moving a large section of water pipe.
Archaeologists later found another headstone and evidence of seven

I'm searching for a marriage record for Samuel T. MECFALL, son of William McFall and his first wife, Jane FENTON; William re-married to Mary Ann GILLILAND.
A History of Bartholomew Co IN states that Samuel married "Polly GASTON"---I can't find a record of this, and no Gaston researchers that know of this marriage.
The McQUEEN family researchers state that "Mary GHOLSON, dau of Benjamin and Jane (GANNAWAY) Gholson married "McFALL". Lydia Gholson, another dau of Benjamin, married George Henry McQUEEN and the info about her sister is included in some of the McQueen family research.
The Gholson family research also lists the information that a dau, b 1826-1828 exists. The name of Mary Gholson is on their lists as a daughter, but she is not necessarily connected to the 1826-28 birthdate---that date does fit with the woman I am seeking.
In the 1850 Oskaloosa, Mahaska Co IA census I found the family of Samuel McFall and wife Mary with 2 eldest children, William Benjamin and Humphrey B.. The next house is that of William GALSTON/GOLSTON and family. Next to that of Benjamin GALSTON/GOLSTON and family. Next is the house of Joseph ROSS and family, which includes a 20 yr old William GALSTON/GOLSTON. The third house from that is of William and Mary Ann McFall with son Thomas.
I think that the Galston/Golstons listed on this page are really Gholsons...the children for Benjamin and Jane are the same as the ones for Benajmin and Jane Gholson. Joseph Ross married Minerva Gholson, dau of Ben and Jane and the McFalls are obviously related to each other.
I'd be happy in any discussion, hints, ideas, tips, etc for determining when Samuel McFall married, and to whom, if the Galston/Golston families on this page are really Gholsons, the relationship of the McCormic and Coontz families on this page to any of the others (if any), etc.
I have quite a bit of information to exchange.
