I have a Chester Norton who lived in Malcolm, Iowa in the early 1870's, according to his obit, he was a life member of the Masonic Lodge there, anyone know where those records might be??
Also anyone out there able to look up 1875 census for Chester and Nettie or Mary Norton, in Malcolm??
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,
I'm planning to be in Poweshiek County later this month. Is there anything you would like me to pick up to be placed on the website? I'm thinking naturalizations...Of course, I have started the deaths and still don't have those done.
So it might be a slow process regardless of what information I'm able to acquire.
I have the WPA records for the county's cemeteries. If anyone would volunteer to transcribe them I could try to figure out how to get them to you. They are not in a format that can simply be copied and pasted.
