I am looking for information re: Daniel Galer MARTIN. The last information I have is he was living with his son, John E. MARTIN in 1870 in Benton County. He was not on the 1880 census that I could find.

Enos S. TUCKER appeared in the 1860 Benton County census in cue township and in the 1870 Benton County census in Florence township, but it appears he died in 1871 in Florence, Wright County, Iowa. Is there a way to tell why he was in Wright County in 1871 and did he have anything to do with naming Florence in Wright County since there is a similar name with the Florence in Benton County?

- STEELE, SUBRA
on Saturday, April 3, 2010
Looking for any information on anyone named SUBRA in the Benton County area. Francis SUBRA and her grandson George SUBRA are both buried in the Evergreen Cemetery (I've visited the grave site). I'd love to find out more about the SUBRA family that lived in the area (possibly Jackson Township) in the 1880's. Where they lived; death records; schooling records; etc.
Stephen and Margaret (STEELE) SUBRA moved to the Vinton area from Dodge County, MN in the early 1880's and had several children while living there (Richard, George, Steven, Nellie, and Pearl). They appear to have farmed while there, and appear to have moved back to Dodge County, MN prior to 1890. Thanks!
