My grandfather was born in Sioux City in October 1899. His name was David
Rands and he married Vera Riddell about 1917. Their daughter Virginia was
born in 1918. I don't have any information on marriage date or place for them
or birthplace of Virginia. By 1920, they were divorced and Virginia was
living in Tama County with her great-grandparents. I am descended from his
second marriage, so we don't know much about Virginia. If anyone has any
information about the Riddells or Rands families, I would appreciate the
help. No marriage or divorce records were found in Woodbury county.

Subject: Verdick family
Searching for Elizabeth Thomason Verdick. The name could have been spelled Verdig, Ferdig. Elizabeth was born 1860 at Ponca, Dixon, NE to George and Louisa Chamberlain Thomason. I don't know the name of Elizabeth's husband, so assistance would be helpful. I'd like to get into touch with descendants of this family. Some of Elizabeth's family lived at Vermillion, Clay, SD.
