Having trouble finding Family census reports in Iowa. My Great Grandfather was married in 1879 in Schuyler county Missouri, sasid he was from Davis, Iowa. I can see several Andrews families in Davis County Plot maps in that era, however no Census reports are showing up. Is this a common problem?
I heard that their might be a book in this library called The Joseph Timberlake Family by Wm R King, also one my Mary King. I need the source of the book and Title page. The information is on pg 64. They want the link between Charles b 1793 to Emilne b 1828 in Tn. The material we sent didn't have the front of the book. She obtained the pages at the Washington, AR Archives NARA.
@ Norma - Unfortunately, the Newberry does not have the book you are looking for. Here's a link to entry in WorldCat which shows the other libraries that do hold "The Joseph Timberlake Family." Perhaps they can assist you. http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/808728271
@ Roderick - If you send us further details using the contact form at: http://www.newberry.org/contact-librarian, we'll be happy to see if we can assist you.
