HAYWARD/HAYWOOD. Seeking information on the Abijah Hayward/Haywood Family. Abijah (widowed) is believed to be living with his son Horace in 1856 in Benton County, Iowa. In 1860 Abijah was living in Polk Township, Benton County, Iowa with his daughter Eliza and her husband Lewis Berry. In 1870 Abijah was still living with her in Benton Township, Benton County, Iowa. He can not be located after that. Abijah was born in New Jersey about 1794. Does anyone have information on who his parents were? His wife's first name was Naomi, but what was her maiden name? They had three known children: Ephraim, Horace, and Eliza? Were there more children? Did Abijah die in Benton County? Any help would be appreciated.

WILSON posted by Donna-Rae Prong on Friday, October 8, 2004

WILSON I am looking for the death date and burial site of Nancy, wife of William Riley WILSON. She was born c. 1832 in Ontario, and died between 1870 and 1880 in Canton Twp., Benton Co., IA. Perhaps the Oakwood cemetery, west of Shellsburg, would have been the closest to their farm. Her husband and some of their family returned to Ontario, but some young children may also be buried in Nancy's plot. It would be most appreciated if someone could check cemetery listings for Canton Twp.
