I am not related to this line but did have ancestors in Henry Co. IA, so I check in occasionally. I was able to find some information for you.

Iowa Marriages show this:

Isabell E. Harwood married B. F. Dailey, 23 April 1859 in Henry Co. IA.

In the 1860 U. S. census they were in Burlington, Des Moines Co. IA
B. F. Dailey, 26, OH
Isabelle E. Dailey, 19, IN
Cara Dailey, 4 mos. IA
George Harrod (I believe this was meant to be Harwood), age 17, b. IN

In 1870 they were back in Henry Co. IA. His name is indexed as Franklin Dailey in this census. (He was Benjamin Franklin Dailey)

In 1880 they are still in Henry Co. IA. Living with them was “Ausdale” Harwood, brother-in-law, b. IN Isabelle’s father’s b.p. is given as NC and her mother’s as MD.

They remained in Henry Co. through 1910 I think it is before I lost them. In one census the name is spelled Daily. The 1900 census gave Isabelle’s birthdate as April 1844.

I found a death record for A. Harwood, died 1896, Marshall County. Findagrave has a listing for Ausdell Harwood, b. unknown, died 15 Nov 1896, Burial Iowa Veterans Home Cemetery, Marshall Co. IA.

I looked up his Civil War Pensions Index card. His name is spelled Ansdill Harwood on that record. He was in Regiment 1, Indpt Batty, Light Artillery IA. The filing date for his pension was 26 June 1865. Pensions approved that early were because the veteran either suffered wounds or had ongoing complications of disease encountered as the result of the war.

I did find “Ausdell” Harwood in 1860 Henry Co. living in a household with the surname Neff.

Here is the link to a great search site, which helped me get a start on the Harwood line. I knew it has some early Iowa records, including marriages.

You can either fill in Search information, or scroll down to the link for USA, Canada and Mexico. After that opens, scroll down to Iowa links. I do need to warn you that for some reason this site almost stops, or comes up with a dialogue box indicating a slow script. This has just been happening just the past few weeks so I don’t know what the problem is. It requires some patience to use.

In looking at the preview of my post I see that the address for the search site did not form a link. You will either need to fill it in, or do a copy/paste.
