I attended Eureka #2 School in St. Mary's Township from 1949-1958. I don't
have any idea if it's possible or not, but I would like to know the history
of the school as well as compile a list of teachers who taught and
students who attended Eureka #2 during its history, and when. If I can
find enough information, I might consider making a web page just for grins.
If anybody on this list has any ideas or suggestions how to dig up some of
this information, who to contact, or if they know of anybody having
attended or taught at Eureka #2, please contact me via e-mail at
Joyce, If my memory is clear, if you are talking about Richard who married
Sarah Snell, my John and your Richard are brothers(so we believe). My line
goes from gg grandparents John Haney/Mary Elizabeth Ward, married Polk county
Mo. 1839. They moved to Mills county Iowa, where my grt grandfather George
Washington "Haynie" was b. 1860. He married Myrtle Irene Lee, their daughter
Blanche is my grandmother, she married Carl Wilson. Their son Everett Wilson
married Mildred Fowler(my parents). The spelling Haney is used on Bureau of
Land Management Records in Mo., these are official documents, so don't
believe it was a misspelling that they used Haney versus Haynie. I have 2
for Tarlton Haney, 2 for John Haney,
and 1 for Richard Haney.
It really piqued my curiosity at mention of your Uncle George spending time
on an Indian Reservation. Would love to hear what you know about that. Do
you have any pictures of your Haney/Haynie family? Thrilled to have met you
"cousin". Where do you live? I'm in California.
I'm as confused as you are regarding spelling in that time era. My grandmother
Maggie has her surname spelled as Haney in the 1905 Harrison County, Iowa
Marriage License Directory. Yet, her maiden name is spelled Haynie in her 1915
Harrison County Bio. My ggrandfather's family are listed as Bemans instead of
Beamans in the Iowa Census. I wonder if it is just the clerks recording the
information incorrectly. How many women actually knew how to read or write? I
have info on gggrandmothers that made their mark on legal documents. Maybe they
were unsure how to spell the names. It's anyone's guess. Thanks for replying to
my inquiry. How are you related to the Haynie family? Do you have any info on
Richard and Sarah Haynie of Mills County? My Maggie has a brother George. I am
not sure of his birth order as he has been very elusive.
Maggie also had a sister, Sarah E. who married a F.C. Hondysheldt August 7, 1895.
Hondysheldt has also been spelled Houdesheldt. F could stand for Fred. Richard
Haynie married Jeanette Hagerman October 4, 1894. He is also listed in this 1905
directory as Hainey with 3 daughters, Pearl, Mary, & Gladys. This should be
Maggie's brother. William Haynie Jr. and Harley Haynie could also be her
brothers. Maggies William B. Haynie (b. Sept. 4, 1850 -d Nov 1, 1908) & Ellen
Rickabaugh Haynie (b. 1856 -d. April 7, 1924) are buried in Magnolia Cemetery,
Harrison County, Iowa next to their daughter, Maggie. I know that my gUncle
George spent a lot of time on an Indian Reservation. I don't know where but my
father told me stories about how his Uncle spent months on the reservation.
Perhaps that is why it is spelled Haney at times. I think I am rambling but I am
sort of confused as two families are claiming Ellen as their descendant. Thus 2
families have us listed in their trees yet with totally different names and
ancestry. Let me know if any of these names are familiar to you.

Surname: RICKABAUGH, HAYNIE, HANEY, BEAMAN
Looking for information on the Rickabaugh/Richebaugh family of Mills County,
Iowa. Ellen Rickabaugh/Richebaugh married William Haynie. Parents of Margaret
"Maggie" Mae Haynie (Haney) born July 20, 1876 in Mills County, Iowa and
died December 10, 1944 in Mondamin, Iowa. Maggie married William Emmett
Beaman, March 14, 1894, in Harrison County, Iowa. Maggie lists her parents
as William and Ellen Richebaugh (misspelled by publisher?) Haynie in the
1915 History of Harrison County Iowa book. She states that her parents
moved from Mills County to Harrison County (no date given). She has two
siblings that I can verify, Sarah and George. I have 6 names but these
two siblings are related for sure. I believe that William may be William
B. Haynie, son of Richard & Sarah Haynie. A marriage between William B.
Haynie and Clara E.(Ellen?)Rickabaugh, March 17, 1872, is listed in the
Mills County Marriage Index of 1866-1879. I really need help on this as
two families with completely different ancestrial surnames are claiming
Maggie's heritage and Emmett as part of their family tree. Maggie is my
father's mother. Only one Aunt by marriage is alive that knew this generation
and she is having trouble remembering Maggie's background. Any help with
the Rickabaughs and Haynie's will be deeply appreciated.
Hi, Don't know if I can be of any help, but my lineage is also through Haynie
family. The name Haynie is used from Tenn. then when I find them in Missouri,
the marriage license of my lineage is spelled John Haney and Elizabeth Ward,
1839. They move to Mills County Iowa, and the spelling returns to Haynie. In
the HIstory of St. Clair county Missouri, we have John Haney and Richard
Haney in 1837 and 1838. Various other things were found using the Haney
spelling also. It's quite a curious thing which I haven't been able to find
an answer for. It's believed I have native american blood in my line, and
have also found that the name Haney is Cherokee. Whether that is significant
or not, haven't determined. I realize I haven't given you any
Rickabaugh/Haynie help, but will share my experience with the Haynie/Haney
spellings. Would love to find an explanation.
Beginning September 10th I will be away from my computer till 1st
week of October.
Finally I am going to do some research on my own ancestors in
Spencer County Indiana and Jefferson County Tennessee. I have
never been to these two counties so am looking forward to it very
much. Just as exciting is the fact that Jack and I will be
spending a few days with Margaret Hougland and her husband in
Tennessee. Margaret and I have been working together on Mills
County for three and a half years, but only by e-mail. We are
looking forward to finally meeting each other.
If you have any questions or requests for information, please
hold them until October.
I am reposting this query posted to the IAFREMON-L list as I know
the Hipsher name is interesting to a few researchers on the Mills
list. Are these names familiar to anyone? If so will you please
contact Patricia <pataro(a)casema.net>
> I'm seeking any information re my grandmother, Daisy May Hipsher, and her family. The family appears on the 1900 Fremont County census, but I've searched all of the databases I've been able to locate online and find no mention of this family before or after the 1900 census - with the exception of SSDI listings of the Hipsher children's deaths many years later. I confess to being very new at this, so perhaps I've not located everything that might be available. I'm a resident of the Netherlands, which makes in-person research in Iowa virtually impossible and leaves me dependent upon the internet.
> Daisy May Hipsher taught school from the age of 16 (1901) until her marriage to Anderson Fish Ferguson of Vigo Co. Indiana in approximately 1908, after which the couple relocated to Oklahoma. It's highly unlikely that she taught anywhere but Fremont County, as her youngest sisters were born between 1902 and 1908 in Fremont County and another younger sister was one of her students.
> Many years ago, I saw a small school "yearbook" from her teaching career, which listed her as the teacher and gave the names of her students, including a younger sister, Lucy Hipsher. I'm wondering if anyone might have such a memento or if there are official school records dating back that far. Any shred of information regarding the Hipsher family (names below) or my grandfather, Anderson Fish Ferguson (who apparently came from Indiana to Iowa) will be most appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your kind assistance. - Patricia
