I have been searching for information on my great-grandfather, Charles R Wright, for some time. I’m cross-listing this with the Poweshiek rootsweb as well as I am not sure where some records might be located.
>From an obit I found 8 Jan 1902 it mentions he moved his family to Barnes City from their farm about 1 year before his death (he died 1 Jan 1902) and is buried in Barnes City. The 1900 census lists him living in Jackson Township, Poweshiek Co.
I am trying to find out if there are any land related records that show he owned/sold a farm somewhere in the county and then rented/bought a house in or near Barnes City.
It also mentioned he left $2000 to his family. I had searched records before but did not see any probate or will. Any place else I should search?
Thanks for help!
