  • Notes 
    • Lived in Adams county for only about a year after Leonard was born. Mervel believes Samuel was in Adams county helping to "break prairie" ground for farming. Effie Mae's obituary mentions that they lived in Kansas immediately after marrying for a year and Leonard was with them there.

      Census Records
      1885 Iowa State Census - some reason Samuel is not listed in Alden, Hardin Co.
