Kibbe, Lettie Boucher d) 05/11/1860 in IA-Traer, Tama Co

Our ancestor Henry McCarty is listed (as McCartie) on the 1880 census for Oneida township in Tama County. There are several children listed which were not known to us...Amy J. shown as being 10 years old...Sarah E. is shown as being 13. There was a Sarah Ellen b. 1862 - could this be the same person or were there two...and what happened to the first Sarah Ellen? Also, there is a Bell, 4 years old of whom we were not aware. Did Bell died as a child? Are there death records available there in the county?
We would like to know more about all these children -- we have some information on many in this family...but would like to know what happened to Harry, Amy, and Bell. And was there a Sarah E. other than the Sarah Ellen who would have been 18 in 1880?
Are there any researchers in Tama County who would have access to local records.
Is there a map available through the Tama Genealogy Society or some other organization which would show the townships of the county. I'd be interested to know where Henry McCarty lived and raised his children, including my husband's great-grandfather.
There were other children who had left home by the time the 1880 census was taken --
Lemuel -- shown as Lem in this census - living in Tama township.
Susanna who was born in 1856 was likely married by 1880 and living somewhere in Iowa (we think.)
If anyone can shed light on this family, I'd appreciate the help.
