OSBORNE, ROUSE, WILSON posted by Sherry Wiesen on Friday, June 6, 1997

I am looking for a death (or a divorce) of Hannah OSBORNE ROUSE and Joseph ROUSE. I find them married within the year of the 1850 census. I find Joseph ROUSE married to a Catherine WILSON by 1880 in Nebraska. I have yet to search 1860 but I know that Joseph ROUSE, first son William H. ROUSE, was born in Iowa (in 1858 and his mother is listed as Catherine WILSON ROUSE) either in Benton Co. or Tama Co. I can't find record of birth to know which county. I would also like information on the marriage of Joseph ROUSE and Catherine WILSON ROUSE.

BENNETT, DAVIS, FULLMER, RAABE, ROBERTS, SMITH, WILSON posted by Judith Sandage Murphy on Saturday, June 7, 1997

Seeking information on parents (especially the mother's surname) of Charlotte and William BENNETT. They were born in Indiana (Jefferson or Scott Co) and they both died in Belle Plaine, Iowa. Charlotte married #1 Ben ROBERTS, and #2 Fred FULLMER. The name of William's wife may have been Myrtle. They had a daughter, LoVerne who married Paul RAABE and had a son, Richard. I believe all of Charlotte's and Bill's siblings and possibly the parents, moved to the Belle Plaine area. I would like to find out the grandparents' names and birth/marriage info of siblings. I've been told that Charlotte and Bill's mother's name was Kate and her surname was either DAVIS, SMITH, or WILSON. Kate was possibly born in Indiana and married in Scott or Jefferson Co, IN. Thank you
