Some of you asked that I post to the list if I got any info on where to find
the Webster Co. Naturalization records for 1879. I received the following
message. Haven't had a chance to get to LDS to order the film and check it
out yet. -Judy

Perchance has anyone seen the Webster Co. District Court Naturalization
records for 1879, Ft Dodge? I keep finding my ancestors listed in indices
to the Naturalization papers with page numbers but no one seems to know
where the actual records (or microfilms of same) are. The National Archives
in Kansas City said they should be at the Webster Co. Courthouse in Ft
Dodge. The courthouse says they don't have them. The Webster Co.
Genealogical Society say they don't know where they are. Anybody have them
in their basement?
Isaac GARMOE spent his adult life in and around Ft Dodge. He was associated
with the Banking and real estate in the Ft Dodge area. I was told of a brick
building in Ft Dodge with the name GARMOE enscribed over the entrance. I
believe he and his wife, Margaret Sherrill GARMOE are buried in the Ft Dodge
area. Isaac also had another wife by the name of Susannah I. Barger GARMOE
that possibly is buried in the Ft Dodge area. If anyone has any info
concerning Isaac Garmoe, please contact me either via the list or directly.
I am doing a one name study on the name COVEY. If anyone has run
across any of these folks I would certainly appreciate hearing from
My direct line goes back to 1639 in Braintree, Massachuttes. I'm now
trying to fatten the tree and perhaps add a little color.
Thanks in advance for your efforts.
