I just learned that the addresses were not linked correctly on the look-up
pages for the Poweshiek County Web site. They should now be fixed.
If anyone needs a lookup, you are welcome to try the page. Some of our
volunteers may be quite surprised if they suddenly start getting questions!!
I apologize. If anyone notices any other problems, please let me know so
they can be fixed.

George Washington MORRISON was born 1-26-1865 to William Robert Morrison
and Catherine BEARNES.
He is listed in the 1900 census for Poweshiek County married to Dora
(last name unknown) and four children: Verna D., Nina, Nol??, and Ethel.
The second and third children were twins.
George Washington then appeared in North Dakota in 1903 without wife and
family. He married Bertha Mae WOOD in 1915.
Is anyone on this list descended from one of the four children left in
Poweshiek? I have received a message from a descendant of the second
marriage who would like to make contact.

If I overlooked anyone, be sure to let me know so I can get the page
