My g-grandparents immigrated to Webster County from Norway. Articles that I have read state that most came to areas where they already knew someone, or where a relative had settled. Since the surname is Swanson, I am looking for anything that might help us find their origins in Norway. Does anyone have any information on where the majority of Norwegians in Webster County came from in Norway?
Has their been a history of Webster County printed? If so, is it still available and where could someone gain access to it?
I recently visited Webster County for the first time, but didn't have enough time to do much research. Thanks for any help you might give.
Hi, I have an ancestor, Catherine F. Roy b. 1853 in Ind.
She married Johnson Weeks in l873 in Iowa. I think they had a son Guy Weeks. Do any of these names sound familiar to your lineage? Thank You. Elaine Thompson Carlson
Am researching Frank Jones>Joseph and Elizabeth Hook Jones>Simeon and Dorthy Starkey Jones. Joseph and Family were in Webster County after 1881 until about 1890 when they moved again to Washington State. Would like to share with Decendants and help to find Ancestors.
I am interested in doing the same thing. I need to open records for my Grandmother who was said to have been born in Des Moines. Email me and I can fill you in on what i have learned. Perhaps with two of us researching it we can come up with a plan.
The other night I had a very good website for Webster County, including maps,
cemeteries, obits, etc. and now I can't find it. Can someone help me out on
this? A lot of good information but I simply have "lost it". Thanks

Does anyone have access to the 1895 Census Newark-Sumner Townships? I would appreciate a lookup for EDWARD GEORGE HALL OR EDWARD GUSTAVE HALL of Lehigh. I have seen his name both ways and would like to know what it says in this census. Would also like to know if AXEL HALL, his father is listed there. Thanks for any help!
Can anyone do a lookup for me in the 1910 and 1920 webster Co., Iowa census? I am trying to find the information on Andrew DeMorris and family. His wife was Catherine. He had four children: Almeda, Carrie, Harriett (Hattie) and George. My grandmother, Hattie's daughter) said that they lived in Ft. Dodge. Thanks.
I am also looking for the Fullers. In particular Marie Ellen Fuller. She was born 31 March 1900. I don't know when she died but am told she is buried in the Fulmer Valley cemetery in Independance, Allegany Co., NY. She Married Marvin Rodell Halladay who died in may 1970, in Andover, NY.
