TUCKER posted by Gerald Anderson on Monday, March 22, 2010

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 posted by Kevin 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!
