Adams in 1838 and relocated to Washington Co., IA, by 1850. John (Jack) married Ellen Louisa Rogers on 28 Mar 1858 in Johnson Co., IA. They had four children: William Fremont Carpenter, b. 25 Dec 1858; Viola Arvilla Carpenter, b. 22 Mar 1862; Eva Jane Carpenter, 1 Mar 1867; and Ada Catherine Carpenter, b. 15 Apr 1869. It is assumed that all four children were born in Johnson Co., IA. It is not known when or why John (Jack) moved to Superior, NE, or whether his wife and children moved with him. I am just beginning my search of this branch, so any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
