ROSENBERG, STAMY posted by RoseMary on Sunday, August 14, 2005

I have recently begun a Genealogical tree and according to the 1895 Census the ancestor I am currently researching lived in Iowa (Linn and Benton Counties). The gentleman's name Is David ROSENBERG (from Pennsylvania?) and he probably had 2 children born in Benton County in the late 1880's and early 1890's. Records idicate that he was in Linn County (and possibly had another child there by 1895) He was married to a woman called Margaret STAMY (or STAMY). I would appreciate any information you might be able to provide about him. I appreciate your time.
