Is there someone on the Mills Co. list who has FTW who could help me with a
file I received from a dear cousin. He is in his 80's and apparently the
logistics of saving to a gedcom have escaped him - he saved it to
(Batson's.GED.FTW). I have version 7.5 and apparently his version is higher
as when I try and open it the messages says it was saved in a higher version
and is unable to open.
My request - if someone has a higher version I would send the file as an
e-mail attachment and possibly you could open it and resave it in a GEDCOM,
or lower FTW file so it is readable, and send back to me.
Any help or other suggestions would be appreciated. Please contact me

I am searching for information regarding my great grand parents John A. CAREY and Armetta PEER. I have little information. My grandfathers social security application indicates he was born in Mills Co. in 1875. Township or city not identified. I do know that my grandfather William Elias CAREY was a barber, he married Alta Bethenia PAULLIN of Grant, Montgomery Co. Iowa and my father was born in Vallisca, Iowa in 1903.
I have searched a lot of the information on the Mills County site and am certainly
very impressed with the hours of hard work and the dedication supplied by Cay and Margaret! Kudos!
I would appreciate any information anyone might have regarding these families.
and many thanks
Another township completed and online for your viewing. Now we
have 9 of the 13 townships finished, except for possible
We know many of you are checking out these new pages because we
hear from you. Thanks for your comments. There are new people
subscribing to the mailing list all the time.
We would really like to know how many might want to have another
'roll call'? I think lots of long time subscribers just aren't
interested. With over 330 queries on the GenConnect Board for
Mills County, most people have their surnames posted there, so
maybe anything else is an effort in futility.
We have had some real success stories recently by people using
our web site and Search Engine. That makes our efforts worth
every minute we spend trying to make the search easier for you.
Cay and Margaret
I am new to the list. Only possible ancestor I have in Mills County that I know of so far is a Jennie Stewart b abt 1870. She died abt 1925. While at the Ancestry site I noted in the Iowa Cemetery Records: Incomplete Grave Stone Records of Mills County, IA p 90 there is a Jennie Slack b 1870 d 1925 Glenwood Town Cemetery Lot 603. My Jennie Stewart married a Slack. My Jennie's Slack family and offspring were later in Council Bluffs, IA and Omaha, NE. I notice Mills County is so close. We do not know where our Jennie died or was born, so this Jennie is interesting. Anyone doing Stewarts or Slacks in Mills County? Anyone near the Glenwood Town Cemetery that could see if there is a tombstone there and who might be buried by her? Annemarie panacea(a)toledotel.com
Margaret has done it again. She has Silver Creek Township online
for you to search.
We now have 8 of the 13 townships completed but we will be going
back to make corrections or additions.
If any of you see broken links, errors, or things that need more
explanation please let us know. There are some tables Margaret is
not completely satisfied with so she will probably be making some
changes. If you see garbled tables, grid lines missing etc. let
us know about that also. Not all computers or browsers see things
the same way.
First I want to thank the Mills County Genealogical and Historical Society.
This is a wonderful website. I have been searching for information for weeks
and I finally found a bit of my ancestry line in your records.
I am making a trip to Ireland at the end of April and am searching for
information about my Great Great Great Grandfather Alexander Cain's
family,(b. approx 1855-58, IRE) married to Lorena May Tucker (b. approx.
1868-71) Supposedly Alex emigrated from Ireland during the potato famine. He
and Lorena were married in Illinois. Moved to Mills Co., Iowa, Anderson
Township. They had 4 children: Maude Delora, Paul, Glen Tucker, and Claud
Leroy. I have found records indicating Claud was born in NE and Maude was
born on 8/15/1897 in Henderson, Mills Co, Iowa (Date of application
3/26/1945). I have not been able to find any birth records for Paul, Glen
Tucker (b. 8/15/1905) or Claud.
Indicated in the 1895 Mills Co. Iowa Anderson Township Census, Alex Cain
with wife Lorena and son Claude resided in this township. Based on dates I
believe they settled in Anderson, IA between 1891-93. Based on Maude's
birth, they must have still been living there up to 1897. In another record,
Alexander Cain was listed on a list of 1892 Southern Iowa Agriculture
farmers in Red Oak, Montgomery Co
Also recorded in the Anderson Township Census, was the residence of Margaret
Cain (Ire) age 65 widow, Ellen Cain, (IRE), and William Cain (IL). Could
Margaret Cain be the mother of Alex ?. Both Alex and Margaret listed a
Sturgeon living with them. Late records indicate the William married Hallie
Dell Adkins. At the time of their marriage (3/10/1887) William was a farmer
in Montgomery. The same county Alex was listed. Maybe they were brothers and
I can't find any records regarding the births of Alex's and Lorena's
children, Paul and Glen. And I haven't been able to find any records
indicating where they lived after 1892. Did they stay in Iowa? My Grandma
Jessie Belle Cain, vaguely remembers living on a farm with her grandparents
Alex and Lorena. She thought the town they were near was Macedonia but I
can't seem to find any records in Pottawattamie Co. Claud Cain married
Creole Swacker and had two children; Jessie and Delmar.
The 1895 Census also notes that Lorena Tucker and Alex came from IL via NE.
I haven't been able to find any records of marriage, emigration in either
state. Hoping that there will be more detail documents listing Alex's and
Lorena's parents and prior residence.
Would you be able to help me out or direct me to records that will help me
find my find this information?
Thanks you for your help,
I'm sorry if my posting regarding the Haynie family was unclear. Both
siblings, Patsy and Billy, as well as their families, were living in
Mills County in 1993. As I stated, Billy died in 1993 or 1994.
When I was in Glenwood, November 2000, I researched all of the
obituaries. I found nothing on Billy Haynie, only his grandfather,
William B. Haynie, Sr. That is why I posted to the list. Sometimes,
someone in the area recognizes the family from modern history. I felt
this may be true as Billy died in a work related accident.
Thanks, for the information, though.

I am researching the William B. Haynie, Jr. family. He was born in
Harrison County, Iowa to William B. and Clara Ellen Rickabaugh Haynie n
( My ggrandparents). I have information that he married Hazel McClure
but have no verification that is indeed his wife or where they married.
I do know that his two children were Bill or "Billy" and Patsy.
The family lived in Billings, Montana. I have a picture of the family in
1952 and Billy looks much older than Patsy.
The children and possibly the wife moved back to Mills County. I do not
know Patsy's married name. Bill or Billy was an electrician and was
electrocuted in an accident in 1993 or 1994. Patsy and Billy's family
were living there at this time. This information was related to me by a
cousin in Nebraska. I have not verified it.
Does anyone recognize these Haynies? Any information would be very

I found Minnie living at the Iowa Institute for Feeble Minded
Children in 1900 when there were about 870 inmates.
KINCAID, Minnie, b. Feb. 1868, age 32 years, her birthplace and
that of her parents was
listed as unknown. She is listed as 'cannot read or write' but
In the 1920 census there were listed about 1,500 inmates at the
KINCAID, Minnie, age 51 b. IA parents b. in U.S.
If you are looking for a specific date of death or burial place
you probably will have to check with the Courthouse in Glenwood
but unless she was sent home for burial I am sure she is probably
in one of the many unmarked graves in the State Cemetery.

I checked the census of 1900, Glenwood Twp and Glenwood Village
and did not find the Ackerman family. I do not have access to the

Looking for cemetery information on a Minnie KINKADE b. 1865 and d. approx.
1945. She lived at Glenwood Center most of her life. Is there anyone who
could help me and do a look up? I'm assuming Glenwood Center buried at the
Glenwood Cemetery or am I wrong? I would appreciate any information or help.
This person had one of the childhood diseases, developed a high temperature
and never advanced beyond perhaps ten years old. She is a great aunt to me.
Thank you for any help.

Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs is selling surplus year books
as a fund raiser for the class of 2001.
