I am looking for the parentage of William DILLON born in Ohio in 1822.
We find William living with his wife Elizabeth (?) in the 1850 Ohio
census for Green township. They had three sons and in that 1850 census
they were: Abraham age 6, Henry age 4 and John age 3. In 1853 William
moved his family to Decatur County, IA where they lived for many years.
William died about 1875 in Decatur County. Does anyone out there have
information on my William DILLON? Thank you for your help.
San Carlos, Calif.

My g grandmother was Laura Ellen Gadbeery, d. of William Franklin Gadberry any cousins out there, esp. children of Lula Briggs?
I am hoping someone may have some leads on my ancestors that I have not
had alot of success. My great grandparents were John Fletcher Chapman
b.3 Oct. 1863 and 12 June 1954. He married Jerlettie Jane Hayworth b.1
March 1868 and died 30 Apr. 1953. They had 3 children and I am trying
to find more about son, my great uncle Guy Chapman b.17 Aug. 1895 d,12
Aug. 1979 and married to Vada Edgman b.3 June 1893. They had one
daughter, Banetah Aline Chapman b.1922 and married Raedean Street. I
have some names of their children and grandchildren. I think the
Streets are alive and living somewhere in Iowa but cannot locate. My
sisters and I remember playing some with Banetah when we were children
and they lived in Cambria, Ia. where Guy was a postmaster for 15 years.
If anyone has any information to share it would be greatly appreciated.
