Margaret has another township up with only one or two items to
add. If you had Deer Creek people you need to take a look. We
are having fun with this project and hope it has been helpful to
some of you. We plan to have an additional township ready every
couple of weeks.
Searching for census information on the TUNISON surname in Iowa. I have the
following TUNISON's residing in Iowa and am looking for more information on
them but also on any other TUNISON's in Iowa:
W. W. TUNISON
spouse: Mary (Diegel) TUNISON
children: Bernice (born about 1887 or 1888)
Edna (born about 1895 or 1896)
Also: Agnes TUNISON (probably another daughter of W. W. & Mary TUNISON).
In 1917 Edna and Agnes TUNISON were residents of Malvern (Mills Co.) Iowa.
In 1919 Bernice TUNISON was a resident of Malvern (Mill Co.) Iowa.
Any help is most appreciated!

Looking for information about Nancy Johnson Hargen simpson who Married
James Thomas Mudd, who is my great great grand parents who lived in mills
co. Iowa about 1850-1870. Any information would be greatly apreciated.
Hi Joe --
I have used the 1856 several times and have found it very useful. I was looking in Cedar and Fremont counties. As you know, each one is different due to the dude who was practicing their penmanship. Some good, others not so good.
In those years there were alot of people ganging up on the west side of Iowa waiting for Nebraska and other states to open up to settlers.
I have not used the 1859 yet, but need to.
But.................no soundex or index that I know of.

Would anyone who has reviewed the state census material for Mills
County IA for 1854 and 1859 care to comment on their content and
I see that each is available on LDS microfilm. It would be reassuring
to know a bit more about them before I order them. As the entire state
of Iowa for 1859 is on one roll, I take it that it is not an all-name
census. However, is 1854 similar in detail to 1856?

Margaret and I have been working the last two or three months on a new project.
If you have an interest in the Townships of Lyons, Rawles, Center or Plattville,
take a look at our Mills County web site. We have tried to use resources which
are filled with names and have quite a few new ones to add to our existing information,
also quite a bit of history of the towns, schools, churches. We are particularly
grateful to Allen Wortman in giving us his permission to copy from his book
"Ghost Towns of Mills County Iowa."
The plat maps are something which are not often found on USGenWeb sites. The
names taken from them are called 1910 Plat Map Names. If you find your relative
there it tells you in which Section their land is found, then go to the map
and see just where they lived and who their neighbors were. Margaret has done
a marvelous job making these maps readable, complete with some coloring. We
also have names of residents shown on the 1971 Plat Maps, but not the maps.
This is an ongoing project and other townships will be added from time to time.
Please tell us what you think.

I am looking for assistance with regard to the 1880 Census for Mills County,
Iowa. One of my ancestors, William Marcellus Brookhouser died in Silver City,
Mills County, Iowa on 7 March 1882.
If anyone has access to the 1880 Census for Mills County, would you please
check to see if a Brookhouser lived there in 1880?
The 1870 Census shows William Brookhouser family in Harrison County, Iowa ---
however I do not know where he was in 1880.
Thank you very much.

Hi - I'm new to the list. First of all -- the Mills County web site is really
great! I was so happy to find so much information.
I found my ancestors' marriage record (Elam Russell Sperry m. to Mary Sharp
on 22 May 1856). My question: would the actual marriage record show any more
information, such as their ages or names of parents & witnesses?
Also, I noticed that the County Clerk's office says they only have marriage
records beginning in the 1860's -- so I'm wondering if the original marriage
record even exists any more.
Thanks for any information,

I know this is a long shot but - hey - tis worth a try!
I would like to find my cousins stemming from the marriage of Cordelia DAY GIBSON to either Milo Harvey GIBSON or Francis Marion MORFORD and/or any stemming from the marriage of Cordelia's parents - Cyrus DAY to Harriet (KASHOW ????). Am in contact with one DAY cousin (a direct descendent of one of Cordelia's brothers) but she also has no further information on the DAY's nor can she verify Harriet as being a KASHOW.
Am praying that some of the other cousins might have found more information on "my brick wall" on the DAY line - have found Cordelia's family (father, mother and probably most of the siblings) but cannot go back
further to her father's family nor her mother's family (Cyrus DAY married to Harriet KASHOW). The earliest trace I have of them is an 1840 Census from Marion Twnshp., Jennings Co., IN: anything further back is pure speculation on my part - a marriage record for Jennings Co., IN ----- DAY, Cyrus married to KASHOW, Harriet on 02 Jan 1833 (daughter of Daniel Kashow and Elizabeth Higgins) ----- but cannot verify this is "MY" Cyrus and Harriet and can go no further back although I have found a Daniel KASHALL married to an Elizabeth HIGGINS in NJ --- the spelling of KASHOW to KASHALL is holding me back and cannot get to NJ to verify the records.
Have no idea on tracing Cyrus DAY - as always, there seems to have been more than one - plus - 3 of the 4 census readings I have (my own scanned copies) are disagreeing on where he was born - two say NJ (1850 & 1860) and one says NY (1870). At least Cyrus DAY and Harriet (KASHOW ????) DAY are in agreement as her census reading (line) says the same for the same years!??? I believe I have found the burial sites for Cyrus, Harriet and at least one of their children in Woodlawn Cemetery, Union, Monroe County, IA. Also know that Milo Harvey GIBSON (1st husband of Cordelia - died in the Civil War). Cordelia is buried with her 2nd husband Francis Marion MORFORD at Calvery Cemetery, Malvern, Mills Co., IA. The Gibson girls all grew up in the Malvern, Mills Co., IA area - they were raised by Cordelia DAY GIBSON and her 2nd husband Francis Marion MORFORD.
