Subject: Loney Genealogy
Dear Ms. Hailey,
I am currently researching my family genealogy and am trying to locate the naturalization and immigration records for my family. I have contacted several Federal Agencies who recommended I contact a local agency for my search.
My Great Grandfather and his brother immigrated to Iowa (I believe Tama or Marshall County around the Dunbar area) in the 1890's from Norway and supposedly naturalized around 1895. They changed their last name from "Lono" to "Loney" and eventually settled around and in Marshalltown. Here are the names of the family members that I know of:
Torkel O. Lono and Sophie (Sofie?) Lono Hegerland
Ola T. Lono and Arnt T. Lono (sons of Torkel and Sophie)
Nels/Nils Lono and Anna Lono. (brother and sister-in-law to Torkel O. Lono) who later moved to Wisconsin.
I am unsure of any other children these two couples had at the time... Obtaining that information as well as their original names/ages information would be helpful.
Any help or leads that you could provide would be a great help to my research.
Thank you in advance for your efforts.
Who are the children born to Joseph & Amelia J. (Wonderlich) Smith? Joseph
Smith & Amelia J. Wonderlich were married in Tama County, Iowa on 11 July
1864 (Book A Page 50). Did Amelia sometimes go by the name of Jane? Was
Jane her middle name?
I'm new to the list. I have the opportunity to cruise through Iowa & SD
in May and would like to find graves of Martin Lake and Naomi Trout
Lake. They died in 1896/97 and lived in Richland Twp. I'm a descendant
of their youngest son, George. Any assistance would be appreciated.
I am researching the family of William Henry Harrison and Clarinda (Neal) GREGG who resided in Traer, Tama, IA. Their issue, all born in Traer: David Ray 1881, Alpharetta Mae 1884, Alice Neal 1886, John Sager 1890. This first three children were buried in Traer.
What sources are available for wills, obituaries, biographies, cemeteries and so forth?
Thank you for your help.
