I am a recent subscriber to this list and could use a little assistance.
Today I found my Hurley family in the 1870 Tama County Census. On page 12
Denis Hurley and Mary Hurley with their children:
Due to the very poor quality of the film I am unable to read most of it and
am also unable to make a legible copy for my records. I am wondering if
there is anyone who has access to this census that would be willing to make
a copy for me. I can not read what Denis's occupation was - and curiosity
is going to kill me <G>. I would like to have a copy of pages 11-13 so I
can search for others nearby. I would be more than willing to pay any copy
and postage costs.
As near as I can figure out at this time I believe they were in Tama and
Grundy counties from about 1866-1880 although they may have moved to Sac
County by the late 1870's. I would appreciate any suggestions on local
resources that would help me gather more information. I have the children's
birth dates, but the last one was born in 1875, which I believe is prior to
state record keeping. They were Catholic - if that helps.
I would sincerely appreciate any help given. Thank you very much.
