I am looking for help on information about my ggrandfather and his
ancestors. Lester VanAmberg was born about 1872-1874 in Jones, Marion or
Cherokee county of Iowa. Lester married Lucinda Gadmer in 1899 in Cherokee.
Lucinda was born in 1876 in Jones county and is buried in Silver Creek,
Cherokee county (I believe).
Lester's parents were Benjamin (Lester listed him as Albert) VanAmburg and
Harriet Boots. Benjamin was buried 1895 in Cass cemetery, Marion county (I
believe). I have no death date or death place for Harriet. Benjamin and
Harriet had four other children: William buried 1903 in Washta, Cherokee
county; John buried 1942, Quimby, Cherokee county; Anna who married Robert
Hoon buried 1932 in Sunset View cemetery, Washta; George, death date or
place and Lester, no death date or place, just that he disappeared in
Lester and Lucinda lived in Cherokee. Is there any where to find out if a
divorce or separation was ever filed? Did they do that when people
disappeared in the early 1900s?
Any information or direction on how to find the information on Lester,
Benjamin (Albert), Harriet, William, John, Anna or George would be greatly
