I am new to the list & a frustrated BARGER surname researcher. My grandmother got me hooked some 45-50 years ago & I have been trying to put the pieces together ever since.
Mr. Joseph Barger, Sr.b 1827-Pa. was a tanner by trade and moved into Illinois in 1845, where he remained eight years engaged in farming. He then went to Iowa, where he bought and improved a large tract of land, enjoying the fruits of honest toil, at the age of seventy-eight, being still hale and hearty. I wonder if it was Tama County ?
He was married to Eva Horlacher.
3 of their 5 children were born in Kendall County.
Elizabeth b. 1848, Mary, b 1850 & William b 1852.
The next child Lucinda, was born in 1856 in Stephenson County, & then they were off to Tama Co, Iowa & eventually settled in Southwest Iowa & Northwest Missouri.
The land grants on BLM-GLO for Illinois & Iowa do not seem to co-ordinate date wise with this family.
Lucinda BARGER,b 1856 & married Thomas FLEMING, b 1849 & are both buried at Gladbrook, Tama Co, Iowa. I am at all familiar with the cemeteries there or where to go to get information.
Is there anyone out there that these facts sounds familiar to & would like to share information ?
I accept any & all suggestions or informartion & am very discriminate about revealing publicly any sources.
I look forward to your suggestions.
