"Reports of cases in law and equity determined in the Supreme Court of the State of Iowa" ("Iowa Reports") by Thos. F. Withrow, reporter, Vol.VII, being Vol.XV of series; Vol.15, pgs.501 to 504 (California State Law Library, Sacramento, 12/2003; MAD's extract)
      DUNCAN v. ROSELLE et ux.; Supreme Court of Iowa; 15 Iowa 501; June term 1864.
      Appeal from Des Moines District Court. Monday, April 4. In March, 1856, the parties resided in the neighborhood of Piqua, Ohio [MAD: Miami Co. Ohio]. About that time the defendants sold a house and lot, which they owned, for $1,100, and after paying some debts which they owed, they removed to Burlington, Iowa, leaving an indebtedness of $200 to the plaintiff unpaid, but upon which he afterwards obtained a judgment against W.M. Roselle, in the District Court of Des Moines County.
      In the spring of 1858 Frederick Funk, of Burlington, conveyed the north half of lot seven hundred and sixteen to Lucinda Roselle, for the consideration of four hundred dollars. Upon this lot the defendants erected a dwelling, and resided in the same. Finding no other property out of which to satisfy his judgment, the plaintiff filed this, his creditor's bill, to subject the house and lot aforesaid to payment of his claim, alleging that the same had been purchased and built with the means of the defendant, William M., and the title taken in the name of his wife, Lucinda, to defraud creditors. The answers deny this allegation, and affirm that the lot was purchased and the house built (except the carpenters' work), with the money earned by the said Lucinda in Burlington, at her trade as Milliner and dressmaker, and that the title thereto was taken in her name for a lawful purpose. On the hearing, the Court held, and so found, that the evidence supported the answer, and dismissed the plaintiff's bill, and thereupon he appeals.
      (opinion) LOWE, J. - Whether the premises in dispute were purchased with the husband's means, derived from the proceeds of his Ohio property, or with the money of the wife earned as a dressmaker in Burlington, is a question concerning which the evidence is somewhat conflicting, with a preponderance, perhaps, in favor of the latter proposition, yet in respect to which we feel relieved from expressing any positive opinion, because we are constrained to hold that whether the one or the other is so is an immaterial matter in this controversy. The marital rights of the husband and wife, as they exist at common law, are undoubtedly changed and modified by the Code; not in all particulars, but in a prescribed or to a limited extent.
      For instance, personal property or specific articles of personal property, or money, or things in action, which the wife may bring into the family at marriage, or which, after coverture, may be derived from her parents by gift or devise, or from other third persons, for a consideration originating outside of the marital relation, does not at once, under the statute, vest in the husband, but she may hold such property as her own, exempt from her husband's debts, even although she leave the same under his control, provided, nevertheless, she complies with the provisions of the statute in giving notice, and duly filing her right thereto for record, &c.
      This, with some other minor or less important provisions, is the general scope of the changes which the statute has made upon the common law on this subject; and it does not in terms or by necessary implication provide that the money or other property which the wife may acquire by her own labor and industry during coverture, whilst she is receiving the protection and support of her husband, shall vest in herself or be exempt from her husband's debts. But, on the other hand, by the principles of the common law, the ownership thereof did vest at once in her husband, and should be made available for the payment of his debts. In all such cases we are to follow, first, the rule prescribed the statute, if it has laid one down; if not, then the doctrine which obtains at common law, by the rules of which, in the case before us, the right to and property in the money which Lucinda earned in dressmaking vested at once in her husband; and if she purchased real estate with it, taking the title in her own name, she holds the property simply in trust for her husband and his creditors. Such being the law, the decree in this case should have been for the plaintiff, subjecting the property in controversy to the satisfaction of this execution. Such a decree will be entered in this Court, and the judgment below Reversed.

Pension Index Card File, alphabetical; of the Veterans Administrative Contact and Administration Services, Admin. Operations Services, 1861-1934; Duff to A-J Duncan (negative FHL film 540,888, some cards very faint); Joseph Duncan to Dunn (positive FHL film 540,889, some cards very dark)
      Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
      Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
      The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
      Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.
