Am looking for info on a family living in Chester, then Lime Springs, Clayton Co., Iowa in the mid-1860's.

John Taylor Smith (b 1829 in England) married to Lucy Ann Olmstead (b 1842 in Catteragus Co., NY) in January 1860.
They had seven children, one of whom (Capitola Ann smith) was my greatgrandmother. She married John Stephen Booth in Lime Springs, IA in 1877.

These Smiths moved to Illinois, but are buried in Pleasant View Cemetery in Lime Springs.

Does any of this ring a bell with anyone? Any help would be appreciated. With the name John Smith, this would be easier to find here!
