Does anyone know of the existence of a photo of any of the church
buildings used by the Primitive Baptist church called Liberty? This
church met for many years in the vicinity of Kellogg, Iowa, in Jasper
County. The first church building was destroyed by the tornado of June
1882. Although several people were killed in the Rock Creek area,
Liberty church members, who were meeting that evening, were
instructed by the minister to lie on the
ground outside the church as the tornado approached, and they escaped
injury. The church building, however, was destroyed; and the members
met the following day at the site to plan a new one. This building
was used by the church until 1925; it is now being used by the Victor
Grange. The congregation then purchased a building on Spencer Street,
one block off of Highway 6 in west Grinnell.

Seeking info on the Johan Swangel/Swangle and Johnson ancestry. My grt grt
grandmother is Sarah Ann Swangle, who married James C. Johnson. It's my
understanding they lived in the Poweshiek area in the 1850's, and I think
that their children were born there.
It's believed that Sarah Ann was daughter of John/Johan Swangel and Elizabeth
Stroup. She was born 1833, married James C. 1854. Grateful for any

He was born March 10, 1913, at Grinnell, Iowa, the son of William and

Little League team from Andy's Chevron, helping the Lions Club with programs
at the rodeo, barbecuing chicken for the Knights of Columbus dinner or

Whenever he was asked, Andy could always be counted on to lend a helping
hand. He also enjoyed golfing and fishing in his spare
