Seeking info re family of Larkin Sneed PACKWOOD married to Geneva Ann
KRYGER. Have made some progress in tracing them through census records, but
am still searching for documentation re family construction outlined below,
as well as birth, marriage and death info and have lots of unanswered
questions. However, I'm posting what I have found to see if listmembers
might be able to help me find records (or advise re sources) - or if others
researching the PACKWOOD or KRYGER families would be so kind as to exchange
Larkin Sneed/Snead PACKWOOD was born 1858, IA - son of Larkin Packwood and
Nancy Brown, siblings include Angeline, Thomas B., Samuel, William, Andrew,
Alvin. (Please see email me for line of descent in PACKWOOD family.) He
was married to Geneva Ann KRYGER, b.1875 in Mills or Fremont Co, Iowa,
daughter of Peter KRYGER (born Holland) and Sarah Elizabeth STEVENS, who was
my grandmother's sister. They had 4 children:
(1) Florence Minnie Packwood, born June 1891, Monona Co, IA
(2) Vernice Imogene Packwood, born est. 1894 in IA (died as child, before
(3) Wesley R. Packwood, born August 1895 or 1896 in IA
(4) Esther Packwood, born April 1899 in IA
Can anyone on the list help me find the following birth, marriage, death and
burial records in Monona Co Iowa?
(1) marriage record for Larkin Packwood and Geneva Ann Kryger - about
1889-1890 - likely in Monona Co, IA?
(2) birth records for their children, all born Iowa: Florence Minnie, born
June 1891; Vernice Imogene, born 1894, Wesley R. born August 1895 or 1896,
and Esther, born April 1899
(3) death record for child Vernice Imogene Packwood, b. 1894 - had died by
1900 - likely in IA
(4) death record for Geneva Ann Kryger Packwood, wife of Larkin Sneed
Packwood - between 1900 and 1910 - believed in IA (or possibly Nebraska)
(5) marriage records for their daughters, Florence Minnie Packwood and
Esther Packwood - perhaps in IA, although may have gone to Nebraska as
children and married there
