My great-grandfather, William Wade(1830-1916) and his wife Susan Ann
Johnston Wade(1838-1903) settled in the Toledo, Tama County, Iowa area in the
late 1860's, emigrating from Fayette Co., PA. They had eight children:
Arthur(1879-1962)--my grandfather, Lutellus Lindley(1858-1932), Mary
Margaret(1861-1916), Harry W.(1862-1923), Maria Kate(1867-1947), Anna
Jerusha(1870-1936), Charley Yelser(1865-1866), and Winfield Johnston
Several of Susan Ann's family members followed/preceded her move to Tama
Co. and settled there also.
If anyone on this list is a descendant of these folks, or knows someone
who is, I would appreciate info. along those lines. Anyone in possession of
information in their genealogical databases re: same, I would appreciate

across any of these folks I would certainly appreciate hearing from
My direct line goes back to 1639 in Braintree, Massachuttes. I'm now
trying to fatten the tree and perhaps add a little color.
Thanks in advance for your efforts.

I just subscribed to this list to research my Hewitt ancestors, specifically Levi A. Hewitt who I believe was my gggrandfather. According to the census index he was in Perry Township, Tama County in 1870. I have ordered this census through interlibrary loan. It will take a long time to get it. So if anyone has access to it and could send me the Levi info, he is on p. 349.
My ggrandfather Isaac Newton Hewitt b 7 Jul 1852 married Dora (Bailey) in IA and his first two children were born there: Herschel b 7 Aug 1875 and Maude b. Mar 1877, so any Hewitt info would be greatly appreciated.
I'm just beginning my IA research, so any Hewitt leads from list members are important to me. Or is there a Public Library or Historical society that would be helpful? Are there genealogists that do lookups for a reasonable fee?
Thank you for this wonderful resource.
