Scope of Project

This project covers these brave Pioneer families who came to settle in Iowa in the early 1800's. It includes many side families married into the family and covers several hundred years. It also covers early beginnings in Massachusetts, Delaware, North Carolina and Tennessee and I'm sure many yet to be discovered locations.


The goal of this project is to enlist help from descendents from these families to help build a complete an accurate tree. If your family is one connected with any of these families, you are invited and encouraged to please add your profiles and help us with our project. If I can be of any help please feel free to private message @Myrna Huthmacher (C)

Check out the wonderful project documents that Robert Fahey has already added to this project. He has been so kind as to include a book which he wrote "OUR IOWA FAMILY" that has a lot of family history and photos as well as genealogy in it. It is well written and is just packed with all kinds of information that you may find helpful as you search your branch of this incredible family.

They include; Ball, Brown, Bryant, Campbell, Cass, Clark, Coleman, Davis, Eller, Glover, Hammer, Jones, Kilby, Lewis, Lundin, Morgan, Muncy, Rash, Shultz, and Swaim just to add a few
