I know that Mary Agnes married Michael Noonan in 1880, Creston. Elizabeth married Mark Crane in 1886, Creston. Catherine married William Tennant in 1903, Creston.
What I am really searching for is where Barnard Donovan came from in Ireland. He died in Creston in 1898 but the obit did not give any of that info.
I was thinking children obits, marriage info, etc. Margaret died in 1897, James in 1949, Catherine in 1950. Others died in other Iowa counties.
Any help appreciated.
August is the time for our great county fairs, community festivals and
last chance for vacations before school starts up again. It's also a
good time to think about having a family reunion and family history!
August is also a great time to become a volunteer and the perfect place
for people who like sharing with others and sharing genealogy is to
become a volunteer county coordinator at IAGenWeb!
Share your knowledge and love of genealogy with others by becoming an
IAGenWeb county coordinator! We have a wonderful group of counties that
are in need of a county coordinator. A new coordinator is needed for
JONES, JACKSON, SAC, IDA, CARROLL, GREENE, LYON, ADAMS, POTTAWATTAMIE,
EMMET, & MAHASKA counties. For more information on how you can become a
coordinator for one of these wonderful counties contact the Welcome
Hosts at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org .
