I'm researching my family in Mahaska County, Iowa, the names that I'm
researching are De Reus, Van Steenis, Bandstra, Van Haaften, Van Zante, Baker
and Simmons. The last two married my Dutch ladies.
Have much information to trade.
I am just starting to try and search for my grandmother in the 1880 census
images but am having a bit of a problem. She was born in New Sharon, but I
don't know which township it's in.
Can anyone help me?
~Lee (who dreads the thought of searching the images for the entire county!)
