WILLIAMSON, YERKES posted by Leslie Williamson Lowell on Saturday, May 5, 2012

I am researching the family tree for the WILLIAMSON family. Beginning with Paul Raymond WILLIAMSON (1904-1968) Seattle, WA, his father Leroy WILLIAMSON (1873-1954)Seattle, WA, then Daniel WILLIAMSON (1825-1911)Benton IA. I am having problems with Daniel WILLIAMSON and finding information on his parents. Info I have found on seems incorrect as Daniel's dob is 1825 on the grave marker photo I found and his wife Priscilla Jane YERKES WILLIAMSON dob is 1834 and the parents listed for Daniel have dob's of 1823 and 1826 which is not possible. There is also another Daniel WILLIAMSON with a dob of 1845 which does fit in with the other relatives a cousin of mine had added to her family tree (the Elisha WILLIAMSON's) but this family does not match up with the Daniel, father of Leroy WILLIAMSON. I would appreciate any information that may help me sort this out.

NIELSEN, SIMONSDATTER posted by Ronnie Nygaard on Sunday, July 8, 2012

SIMONSDATTER, NIELSEN, Ana Helena died in 1887 and was buried in the Benton City Cemetary. But your record says "destroyed". What does this mean? Plowed over, built over? Are there any remaining records?

DAHLKE posted by Larry L. Dahlke on Saturday, July 28, 2012

In 1881 and 1883 two of my Great Aunts were born in Eldorado Township, Benton, Iowa, USA. One was Katherina Wilhelmine Dorothea DAHLKE and the other was Bertha DAHLKE. They were the children of Wilhelm DAHLKE and Wilhelmina (Minnie) DAHLKE. They were of the Lutheran faith and I was wondering where the Lutheran Churches are in Benton County close to Eldorado Township?
