My gggrandmother Margaret (Margarette)(McKenzie) Harper. She and her son James(my
ggrandfather) emigrated from Scotland in the 1870's settling in the Webster county
area. Also emigrating with her were her other children William- (married to Cecelia and
father of Margaret), Thomas, Daniel, Adam and Jemima (Jemina). James married Laura
Elizabeth Williams and died in Lehigh. My grandfather Gaius Paul Harper was born in
Webster County as well. Does anyone know of this family? I am trying to find out what
Margaret's parents names were as I am trying to trace them back to Scotland and
Ireland. Margaret was born in Ireland around 1825 and James was born in Lanarkshire
Scotland around 1853. The family is listed on the 1880 US cebnsus as residing in Sumner,
Webster, Iowa. Any leads or thoughts on how to find leads would be gretly appreciated as I
am a newbie ancestor hunter! Thanks-
