I have some questions about the old age pension list.
The old age pension list on the website has my ancestor's name, address listed as Melrose Route 3), birth date and place, then lists the parents names and then states Jackson Township.
Another ancestor, has her name, no address, birthdate and place, parents, and then City of Melrose.
Can I assume from this that when the list states Jackson Twp. that the named person lives outside the City of Melrose, (i.e. on Route 3) and that when it states City of Melrose that the named person lives within the city limits?
Thanks for your help.
Looking for descendants of Daniel McDonald Ragan and Lydia Ann Shrader who married 22 Apr 1874 in Lucas Co., Iowa. They are buried in the Russell Cemetery, Lucas Co., Iowa.
Their children, as far as I know, were:
1. John Gilbert born abt. 1876, married Minnie Ann FARLEE. John Gilbert and Minnie Ann had at least two children, Edna May Ragan, and Blanche Ragan. Edna May Ragan married John GRANT. Edna May and John had at least one daughter, Edna Ragan GRANT.
2. Cora Isabelle born abt. 1879, married a HOWIE
3. William H. born abt. Mar 1880
6. Lura, married a FOX.
The following family members moved to Monroe County, Iowa and lived in Monroe County in the 1940's. William H. Ragan lived in Albia, Monroe, Iowa; Cora Ragan HOWIE, Harvey and Harry all lived in Melrose, Monroe, Iowa; and Lura Ragan FOX lived in Ocean Park, Los Angeles, California.
Harry, Harvey and Cora (Ora?) are listed on the 1935 Old Age Pension List which I just found on the Monroe County Website.
If anyone has any info on these families please contact me. Thank you very much.
