I am looking for Kelly, Eugene, b <1862> in IL married Derscheid, Elizabetha, b 08/01/1861 Chicago, IL They were married about 1884 in Sioux City, Iowa. I do not know if this is the exact year for my Great-great grandparents marriage. Elizabetha (Lizzie) committed suicide in Beadle County SD in 1895. Eugene, as family legend has it, was in trouble with the law many times and returned to Sioux City with his 3 children. Alphey Columbus, Thomas Latauette, and Marry Snow. The Sioux City authorities removed these 3 children from Eugene's care and placed them in an orphanage. He was arrested for child abuse?

I am looking for the family of ELLA KNAPP who married Harvey Kephart who left his children with relatives after Ella died. Harvey later married an Enger ( Inger ) Hanson and Harvey is buried in the Sergeant Bluffs Cem and there was no mention of Enger being buried with him. Maybe she was placed with the Hanson family because a Frederick Hanson was the informant for Harvey's burial information. More than likely he was one of the older children of Enger since Harvey and Enger had no children together. Harvey died the 10th of July, 1931. Ella Knapp Kephart is buried in Fremont County.
It certainly would be nice to find Ella's parents. I do know she had one sister- Hilda.


Looking for the Kepharts and Knapps from 1880- 1930. Especially any information on the divorce of Harry t. Kephart and where his son went to. The son's name was Donald Kephart. Harry died Dec of 1926 at Bronson.


I am looking for the burial site and obituary of HARVEY R. KEPHART who may have did in 1931. I have the 1930 census showing him as 79 and a wife ENGER abot 76. They lived in Sergeant Bluffs and that is where he is supposed to be buried. There was a son and other members of the family listed in the same household. The sons name was FREDRICK HANSON. ( the census is hard to read.) The son was probably ENGER'S son from her first marriage. Harvey had also been married before tro an Ella Knapp but after she died he must have remarried. Ella Knapp is buried at Mt Zion cemetery in Fremont County but Harvey was not buried with her. It could be that Harvey and Enger are buried together in the Hanson ( Hansen) Plot at the cemetery. Any help you can off would be appreciated and I will pay for any obits Etc. Thanks you so very much for your time.

Am tracing the KNEEBS name as it goes from England to Wakonda (SD), Sioux City, Wakefield (NE) and Jones Co. (SD), 1840's to 1950's. Found reference to a Madge Kneebs, married to a Gilbert Martin Stone, June, 1918. Have this Stone lineage: Porter, James, married - Weir, Elizabeth Taylor.

: . . 1 Porter, John Alexander, m-Oyler, Sophia Eliza.

: . . : . . 1 Porter, Harriet Elizabeth, m-Stone, Gilbert Martin 2/26/1896. Gilbert d-5/1898.

: . . : . . : . . 1 Stone, Gilbert Martin, b-7/15/1887, m-MADGE KNEEBS 6/1918.

Do know that Harriet Elizabeth Porter died in Sioux City 12/28/1931 and a second marriage was to a James Conley. A son, Daniel Conley, was mayor of Sioux City in 1948. Anyone know of this lineage as it relates to Madge Kneebs?

 I have found Paul Kinkel, his wife Bertha and son Wilfred in the 1910 census living in Dakota Township, Dakota County and Dakota Village, could be that Dakota Village is now Dakota City. Anyway, we believe that Paul died in Dakota City around 1920 or before and Wilfred too. Bertha died in Nebraska in 1964. Paul was born in Le Sueur Minnesota. Wilfred in Minneapolis and Bertha Cardine Kinkel was born in Germany. We were wondering if you have any info on where Paul and family are buried in either Dakota City or some where else close by. I have Bertha receiving her Social Security number in Iowa, there was no number listed for Wilfred, that is why I believe he died before 1935. Paul was born November of 1856, so he would have been too old for getting a Social Security card. Please advise, it would be much appreciated.

My grandmother was Mary Ellen Kirkpatrick who married my grandfather, Joseph Wallace (from Prince Edward Island). I always understood she was from Kingsley, Iowa. I don't know where they were married, but I assume in Iowa. My mother was born about 1899, so I assume they must have been married between 1890 and 1896. She had a sister and brother older than her. My grandparents apparently moved after marriage to Southern Calif. as they were all born near Santa Ana, Calif. My grandmother died about the time my mother was 10 yrs. old, so she knew very little about her or her family. Unfortunately, they are all gone and I am the only family member left, except for a daughter of my Mother's younger brother. Any information of any Kirkpatrick family would be most welcome. I could not find anything on the Kingsley website and do not know where else to look. Thank you.

My Great Grandmother, Mary Jane (Menzie) Kemper, died on Oct. 10, 1880,in Sioux City, Woodbury Co., Iowa. The story is that she was struck by lightening, while doing chores, and died as a result. If this is a true story, is there any report of this event? She would have left five children, alone, as she was a widow. They youngest would have been only 1 year old. The children's names were Sarah, William, Lydia, James and Timothy. If you do not have any info on this, can you give me a name of a newspaper that might have carried the story. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

KUDRON According to my family, my GMother's brother, Andrew KUDRON, moved from the Platte/Nance County NE area to Sioux City, IA. Notes in a spiral notebook that belonged to my GMother indicate Andrew was born 6/1893 in Poland, and died 10/15/1957 (presumably in Sioux City,IA). I've called the following Sioux City cemeteries: Calvary (Catholic), St. Michael's (Catholic), So. Sioux City, NE, Graceland, Logan, Floyd & Memorial Park. None show Andrew was buried there. Andrew was not in the 1920 NE census. Does anyone have access to the IA 1920 Soundex to do a lookup? (Soundex code K365) I would be ever so grateful. I'd be willing to do a NE lookup in return, as I have access to them at the Omaha Library.
