A HISTORY OF THE JARNAGIN FAMILY IN IOWA (1856-1996)

P99
The Jarnagin family has been in Iowa for over 140 years. Most of the family found there are descendants of John Jarnagin and Mary Smith. John was born about 1748 in Virginia. He was a landowner in Henry County, Virginia, in 1777. By 1790 he relocated to what is now Grainger County, Tennessee. He moved with his family one final time - to Highland County, Ohio. He died there in 1816. Over 1,300 descendants of John Jarnagin and Mary Smith are included in this history of the family, representing descendants of four of their nine children - Nancy who married Jacob COOPER (240 descendants included), Mary (Polly) who married Jacob WEYER (11 descendants included), Isaac who married Sarah GROVE (750 descendants included), and Eli who married Mary FRANKLIN (328 descendants included). Today their descendants can be found throughout the United States and in at least two foreign countries.

compiled by Holly Wanless Cochran
ISBN 0-9666399-0-1

Mini-genealogy of pedigree surnames from Nurnberg area connected to Bettschnitt: Behman, Gastner, Knod, List, Wackersreuther and Warnick.

Description of book: My ancestor Johann Jacob "Jake" Weischedel was born in 1828 in Feuerbach, now a suburb of Stuttgart, and came to Iowa in 1854. His wife Margaretha Bettschnitt was born in 1832 in the Nurnberg area and came to Iowa in 1855. They were married in Dubuque Co, Iowa in 1856. In 1857 they bought land in Sperry Twp, Clayton Co, Iowa and lived near Volga and Strawberry Point and worshipped at the St.Siebald (protestant) Church in Strawberry Point. Jake was a farmer and died in 1869 just before the birth of his eighth child. One daughter remained in Clayton Co, Iowa and the widow and most of the adult children went to Sully Co, South Dakota about 1883. The book includes all their descendants to the present time. There are 5691 names and 578 pages. The author spent 32 years in research.

BREHE AND TOEDT FAMILIES FROM LIPPE-DETMOLD, GERMANY 1675 to 1997

a Genealogy by Zelda Zeuge Dubel

Allied names: Mini-genealogies of pedigree ancestors, Bodekers, Busse, Coring, Gerken, Huppen, Jurgens, Ludolph, Schnittger (Schnitker) and Twete.

Description of book: I had ancestors named Toedt(mann) who lived in Holzhausen-Externsteine and worshipped at the Evangelical Reformed (protestant) church at Horn. Archives are in nearby Detmold. My ancestor Johann Toedt (1800-1873) married Sophia Schaefer who was the widow of Johann Christoph Brehe. In accordance with the custom of that time and location, he changed his name to Conrad Brehe. They emigrated to Franklin Co, MO about 1847. By coincidence, another Conrad E. Brehe emigrated to Gasconade Co, MO about 1843 and he was probably related to Sophia's first husband. Other relatives who retained the surname Toedt came to Illinois and Iowa. The book covers the genealogy of all these branches as known to me to the present time. Information came from the church record books in Horn and the archives in Detmold. There are 2365 names and 288 pages. The author spent 32 years in research.

Published 1997.
Indexed, Illustrated: 65 photographs.
Cloth bound.
Price: $51.00 each, postpaid in USA.
