Both children died in their youth, perhaps in Madison Co. Seek city or township, any detail appreciated. Any Kinnick reference would be useful, there aren't very many, around the world, thruout time.

On 2 June 1871, John WETZEL married Martha R. GARRET and on 21 March 1873, C.H. WETZEL married Nancy M. AVERY in Madison County, Iowa. Are these two men related to my great-grandmother, Louisa Ann WETZEL, who was born in Missouri (probably Dade County) in 1853? Louisa's family disappeared from Dade Co, MO, after the 1860 census. Louisa herself married Isaac GROVER in Dallas County, Iowa, in 1868. Louisa's WETZEL family at the 1860 census was: George W. b 1816 in VA; Lucinda (Glass) b 1824 in KY; Susan A. b 1843 in KY; Sarah E. b 1845 in KY; Mary C. b 1847 in MO; Corydon b 1848 in MO; Margaret M. b 1851 in MO; Louisa Ann b 1853 in MO; Millard Filmore b 1856 in MO; John C. b 1858 in MO.

LAIZURE: two brothers William Hamilton and James T. LAIZURE came to Madison Co., supposedly in the 1850's. Were they really there that early??? I tried to read the 1856 Census, and could not find a Laizure, but some pages were very faint. William H. had sons Hiram, James T., and William B. Where did James T.( born in the 1870's) move to? He is not buried in the McDonald-Chase Cemetery outside of Winterset with the rest of his family. I have quite a lot of information on the James T. LAIZURE born in 1831 who moved to KS in 1874, and would like to share information.
