Subject: [IAPOWESH] Simpson Cupp and Sarilda (Rilda) McDaniels
Date: Fri, 8 Sep 2000 10:49:05 EDT
I need some help from some of you fellow researchers;
I am looking for Simpson Cupp who married Sarilda McDaniels in Iowa in
It say in a lot of papers, I have, that she went by "Rilda". I got the
pension papers on Simpson and he says in these papers that he married Rilda
in 1847 in Iowa and all of their children were born in Sheridan - Poweshiek
Co. - IA. Their children started birthing around 1850 thru 1870 in
I would like to know if anyone has the census for Poweshiek Co., for 1850,
1860 and 1870 and would look for this family. I would also like to know if
there is a list of early marriages for Poweshiek Co., in order to maybe
them on that.
I wrote to the Historical Society in Poweshiek Co., several months ago but
did not have the information that I now have, since receiving the pension
papers. I was hoping someone on the list could help me and if not, I will
write the Historical Society back again.
Thanks so much in advance,
