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.
