I hope that someone can help me with some information about my grandmother and her family that lived in Manchester, IA. Her name was Virginia Lee BURBRIDGE, born 9-5-1907 in Manchester. Her parents were Charles Lee BURBRIDGE from Oneida, IA and her mother was Julia Anna LORENZ (BURBRIDGE) from Austria-Hungary. I believe she also had a brother named Charles. I have a fifty year reunion pamphlet from Manchester High School that was dated 1925. (I don't know if she attended, or not) Also, at the same time there was a family named DENNIS, specifically a brother named Laurence Stanley DENNIS, born 9-26-1898. He had a sister named Alice. He was my grandmother's fourth husband and they married late in life. I believe Virginia attended school with Alice. (I don't have any other information on Alice, but I think they were close in age.) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am looking for any help possible regarding my family search. My great-grandmother's maiden name was EPPERT.  Her first name was Lillian and her father was James EPPERT her mother was Issabelle (CONNOR) EPPERT.  I know they are from the BOONE (Iowa) area the Family Cemetery is there but I was 10 when I visited it.  I can remember a statue of Esreal BOONE in the center part, and my grandfather saying we are related to Daniel BOONE as a distant uncle.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.  Most are dead and the handed down stories are mixed among the relatives I am in touch with.
Thank you.
