Subject: 1895, 1900, 1910 Census - Peter & Gertrude Smith and family
In reply to: Carol Bacon 's message, "Smith & Viet families" on 15:48:01 11/10/02 Sun

Carol - am posting here as I have not heard back from you about the emails I have sent and don't want to lose research. I believe the below is your family in the 1895 Iowa Census. Note that Peter was born in Dubuque County, Iowa and there is an older son, "Mathies" also born in Dubuque County. You could perhaps find a marriage record on Peter and Gertrude in Dubuque County. The younger children were born in Ida County, Iowa

(The below is a direct copy/paste)

Frank J. Smith 8 Ida Co IA W Ida Ida Co IA

Katie Smith 2 Ida Co IA W Ida Ida Co IA

In the 1900 US Census they are living in Sac County, Richland Twp, town of Odebolt as of the first day of June. "Mathies" must be living on his own by now.

SMITH, Peter, head, born Apr 1853, age 45 [should be 47?], married 22 years, born in Iowa, parents born in Germany, farm laborer

By 1910 they are living near Danbury, Iowa. Note that there are now 7 of 11 children living. The older children are now out of the household, although Nicholas is still there at age 28.

Marilyn Dose of the Ida County GenWeb could perhaps help you with births of the younger children. Here is a link to her site <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.rootsweb.com/~iaida/">http://www.rootsweb.com/~iaida/</a>
