Hi, I have the following people in Webster County. I'm searching for any information on any of these people.
Ray Swizter (b 23 Dec 1885 in NE) married to Martha A. Davis (b abt 1903 in MO). Best guess is they married after 1916 in Glenwood, IA. I know of at least 4 children all born in IA: Catherine W. Switzer (b abt 1922 in Malvern, Mills County, IA), Anna Rose Switzer (b abt 1924 in Gowrie, Webster, IA), John Switzer (b abt 1926 in IA), and Kenneth Switzer. They were in Gowrie, IA for the 1925 IA state census and for the 1930 federal census.
Also have a George Switzer with wife Icie Stout...not sure if they were Webster County as I have references to Lockridge, Malvern & Fairfield.
Also, my mother, Julia Ann Switzer, was born in Gowrie, IA in 1919. Her parents were Arthur Clarence Switzer & Martha "Mattie" Spencer Switzer. Her parents were living in MO both before and after her birth.
Looking for descendants and/or ancestor info on any of these people.

I am searching for information on John or Johan Olsen.
John Olsen was possibly married to a Helen Olsen/Olson.
John had several children ~12 in all including:
Arthur J Olsen (b 1897 in Fort Dodge) I actually have a copy of the
birth cert, but it doesn't have parents names.
Walton Olsen (b 1907 in Fort Dodge) (Later changed his name to Walton Douglas)
Seth Olsen (Disappeared mysteriously in Chicago IL)
Fern (Ferne) Olsen
Brothers Arthur Olsen and Walton Olsen eventually married Huddleston
sisters from Missouri.
Any information regarding these Olsens would be greatly appreciated.
Surenames:Olsen, Olson, Huddleston, Brown
