In 1872, my ancestors came to Iowa county from Ohio. I believe the ROBY family (Margaret and children) settled near Millersburg. They most likely came with other familes or friends? In 1874 they moved south to Adams Twp., Keokuk Co.
I have recently learned that my 2nd great grandparents, John M. ROBY and Margaret MCGINNIS were married in Millersburg in 1872 as were Lucy Ann ROBY and William E. YOUNG.
I know little of Margaret's family. According to later census records, her parents are William and Margaret/Bessis (UNDERWOOD) McGINNIS. They too may have spent time in Iowa County.
Any information about these families would be welcome.
