According to information that I have, my great-grandmother was from Magnolia Iowa, though she was born 12/30/1842 in Ohio and died 11/18/1887 in Golden NE.

Her name was Leah Elizabeth PARKER but I have also seen her last name listed as STEWART. I am theorizing that her mother remarried a man named Stewart and then had 2 sons. Leah had 2 half-brothers one of whom had the name of William Stewart. William may have lived in Logan Iowa,

Leah married Lyman Miller Beebe on January 6, 1866.

I am trying to find more information on Leah's mother ... Mrs. Parker or Mrs. Stewart ... whichever name I can find that makes a connection and her father, Mr. Parker, too.
