I am looking for information on the Radeke family of Tama County. I
don't know how long they were there, I only know that Gust (August?) was
born there in 1863. Any information on him or any of his family members
would be great. Thanks in advance
I'm a new subscriber to this list, trying to find the elusive
William Washington JONES. He was said to have been born in KY of
Welsh/English parentage, went west with Daniel Boone and fought in the
Black Hawk Wars (1832). Later he married a Fox chief's daughter named
Katiqua. One of their children, Henry Clay JONES was my
step-gr2grandfather, born in 1844 in IA (probably Tama) and an
interpretor for the Sac and Fox agency in OK. Henry later married
my gr2grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth PENNY in 1870 in Kansas and
adopted my grgrf Edwin Fenton.
Sarah and Henry had another son William Henry JONES born in 1871
in OK. Sarah died the following year and William was sent to Tama
to be with his paternal grandmother Katiqua. He became an
anthropologist for the Field Museum and a linguist in Algonquin
languages. His father remarried Melissa (?) and they had several
more children in OK.
