Could someone who has a copy of the following:
The History of Marion Co., Iowa, Vol. 1 (Microfiche)
by Union Historical Company, Des Moines, IA, pub. 1881
please look up (in Chapter 6)the material on the history of the Poor Farm.
If you could scan it for me (or key it into a file)...
I would very much like to post that on my website, The POORHOUSE STORY (a
clearinghouse for information about 19th century American poorhouses)at
http://www.poorhousestory.com on the page for IOWA at
Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

Marion Co. His father's name was Thomas Adams and his mother's maiden name
may have been Lynton. If anyone has any information on a John Quincy Adams
from this area your help would be appreciated.
