I am interested in finding a family member of Andrew and Tabitha Karr Bloss
(Blaase, Blosse) who married in Marion Co IA in March 1863. Andrew is not
with her on the 1870 census, but she is shown as Tabitha Blosse (Double ss
written as ff) in Marion Red Rock Twp with two sons George age 6 and Albert
I found a George Bloss age 25 born IA living with Melvin Goforth and wife
Mary E in Belgrade Washington Co MO in the 1880 census. I cannot find
anything in 1880 for Tabitha or Albert. As young as she was, I am guessing
that she may have remarried.
Can anyone help me with this family? Thank you!
I have a Grant of Territorial Right dated 8 August 1892. Mr. Seth I. Silsby
is selling his patent no. 371,102 for certain improvements in Hitching
Devices to Robert A. Rochester of Tehama County, CA.
If you have either of these people in your ancestry, please contact me.
Information on any of the following would be appreciated.
Melissa Ellen Derry, born 7 July 1867 in Ohio but moved to Knoxville with
her family when about a year old.
She was the daughter of Jabob and Hannah Ogden Derry who moved to
Knoxville 1868. Jacob died 6 September 1899 and Hannah died 30 May 1923
both in Knoxville.
Melissa married James Madison Carle in Knoxville in 1884.
James died in 10 October 1908 in Clarinda, Iowa.
After 1908 Melissa Derry Carle married a person known as "Cal" Roof or
Root and lived in Council Bluffs. Melissa was alive in Council Bluffs in
1934 (she would have been 67 years old) but I do not know where or when

Several of my wifes relatives are residing in Knoxville Cems.
Surnames: Deeringer,Dearinger, Derringer, Bonifield, et al.
I would like to procure any information on these surnames that is available.
The typical researchers request DOB, DOD, plot location etc. I am more than
happy to re-imburse for any out of pocket costs incurred.
Thankyou very much,
I believe there were at least two BRODRICK babies or children who died and
were buried in Marion County, probably in Knoxville, between 1860 and 1870.
The parents were James R. and Mary Jane Brodrick.
Would like any information available on them--first names, obituaries,
cemetery where buried, exact dates of birth and death.
Thank you very much for your help.
I find in my genealogy information that my Marion County ancestors are
buried either in the Greenwood Cemetery or the North Cemetery. Are
these two different locations or are there two names for the same
Anne E. Carle, b. 19 Nov 1863, in Knoxville, Iowa married Lorenzo Baty.
Can anyone tell me when and where:
Anne and Lorenzo were married?
Anne died? ( I believe sometime after 1922)
Who were her survivors?
Any info on the CARLE and BATY surnames would be appreciated.
This is my first post to this list. I am planning a trip to IA in June or July and Marion County is one of the places I want to visit.
I have a family that arrived in Marion County in the early 1840s; the father died there in 3-1847 leaving his wife with 12 sons and 1 daughter to raise. The family lived in/around Red Rock which I understand is now under the Des Moines River and that the cemetery was relocated.
Here are my questions:
(1) Would the county courthouse have a death index for the 1840s?
(2) Does the public library, the genealogy library/society in Marion County have published cemetery books that might give deaths in the 1840s?
(3) What office in the county courthouse would have records of individuals that may have been in trouble with the law or hung in the 1840s?
I am looking for any record of Benjamin Casner (born circa 1824 MO/IA) andEben/Ebenezer Casner (born circa 1827 MO/IA). Two other brothers went to the gold mines in CA in 1849; all the other brothers and the sister migrated with their mother to OR arriving there in 1852.
Thanks for any information and suggestions.
