Is there anyone who could do a lookup of the Tama census for 1870 and 1880.
I am interested in having the information for the family of Henry McCarty -
wife Sarah. Children were: Lemuel, Susanna, Daniel, Amanda, Sarah Ellen,
Charles, Frederick Isaiah, and possibly one or more daughters who were born
about 1864, 1865, 1867 and 1868. These four daughters may have died in
infancy - we do not know.
I would appreciate any information from any historical document of the Tama
Iowa area which might tell about this family. I do not even have a location
in the county where they were living. All I know is that they moved to Tama
from Sterling, Illinois.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give.

I am looking for someone who might be able to do a look up for me. My
great great grandparents Perry R. and Delia Smith
SPENCER and their three children came to Columbia Twp., Tama Co., Iowa
in the 1860's. At least they were there in the 1870 and 1880 Census
Records. The childrens' names were Ellis L., Emory and Emily who
were the twins.
I know who Ellis L. Spencer married but I would like to know who Emily
married. She married between 1870 and 1880
as she was not in the 1880 census with her parents. She would have
been 24 yrs old in 1880. I also would like to know
who Emory marriied. He was still single and at home in the 1880
Census. I also would like to know what happened the parents in the
1900 census. I couldn't find them in Tama County.
Any help in this is gretly appreciated.
I am researching CARNAL's from Iowa. My great-grandfather, Benjamin CARNAL was
born in Tama City May 3, 1881. Another relative was mayor of Tama City at one
I would also like to know if the following book is still available: "The
History of Tama County, Iowa 1987." It was compiled by the Tama News Herald &
Tama County Historical Society and The Tama County Tracers Genealogical Society.
Am looking for any information on my Wade & Johnston lines. William
& Susan Ann Johnston Wade moved to Tama Cnty. in 1860 and remained for five
years before returning to their origin of Fayette County, PA. Then, again in
1868 they returned to Tama Cntt./Toledo and remained there the remainder of
their lives: Susan Ann died in 1903 and William died in 1916. They were
supposedly major founders of the United Brethren Church in the area. They
had seven children who resided with them in the area: Lindley, Mary
Margaret, Harry, Anna, Maria, Arthur(my grandfather) and WInfield.
Susan Ann's parents Uriah and Mary Keister Johnston followed the
daughter from Fayette Cnty., PA to Tama Cnty. around 1872. Records indicate
that the Johnston family had a big reunion there in 1875. Besides Susan Ann,
Uriah and Mary's other children were:
W.F. Johnston, Wesley, Lovina, Amanda, Mary Catherine, Winfield, and Sarah.
It is believed that Uriah Johnston died in the 1870's. I have some dates and
connections between these folks but only recently learned that Uriah and
Mary had moved to Tama Cnty. from Fayette Cnty. So, any information re: the
Johnstons in addition to the Wades in Tama Cnty. would be appreciated. Have
not yet had opportunity to contact Tama Cnty. Historical Society to
ascertain what information they might have.
Also, if anyone in the Tama Cnty. area is researching any of these
lines and would like to exchange data, please let me know.
