I have been having computer problems & lack of time
lately so haven't put much effort into this list.
I would like suggestions from listmembers on how to
make this list more active. Would you like a monthly
or weekly "roll call" or list of surnames that people
are working on? Would you like me to list events in
this area that you might be interested in attending
and have a chance to work on your genealogy while in
We have had some new subscribers lately and the list
has been very quiet. Anyone who would like to
introduce themselves or list their ancestors in this
area is welcome to do so.
I will repost my introduction of my ancestors in a

I just subscribed to this list in anticipation of a research trip to
Iowa this summer. William Croker arrived in Roland Twp, just outside of
Gowrie in time to appear in the 1880 census. With him was his wife
Betsy, son Fred age 10, adult son William with wife Ellen (Elsie), and
their son, William P. age 1. William Croker and William Croker, Jr
purchased farm land in Sec 36 Roland Twp in October 1880. They farmed
there until Feb 1900 when they sold up and moved to South Dakota, where
William Sr. died in March. I have found most of the legal documents
concerning this family but I am interested in background material such
as newspaper stories, schools the children would have attended, the
Methodist church in Gowrie, migration stories from Illinois and to South
Dakota, etc. I would like to hear from people who are researching the
same time period.
Thank you, Mary Herzog
