In Reply to: Kings of Howard County (George, Charles) by Shelly Fisher of 101

Here's some info for you!

1900 Iowa Federal Census
Jamestown township, Howard county, Iowa
Charles S. King, head, age 52, born Oct 1847 in New York
Julia King, wife, age 40, born Feb 1860 in Minnesota
George King, son, age 3, born Aug 1896 in Iowa
Lily Belle King, daughter, age 1, born in Sept 1898 in Iowa
Hubert Prosser, stepson, age 9, born Aug 1890 in Minnesota

Mitchell county Death:
Julia C. King, age 45, died Feb 9, 1904 in Jenkins township of heart trouble, she was married, born in Wisconsin and buried in Wisconsin

Howard county Marriage:
Charles Lafayette King, of Oakdale twp, Howard county, Iowa, farmer, age 49, born Oswego co. New York, father: George King, mother: Emiline Stillwell. This was his first marriage. He married Julia Catherine Prosser (nee Wilmot) of Lime Springs, Howard county, Iowa, age 36, born in Winona county, Minnesota, father: Allen Goodsell Wilmot, mother: Sarah Bemore. This was her second marriage. They were married in Lime Springs, Howard county, Iowa on Aug 20, 1895 by J.F. Dunham, Justice of the Peace. Witnesses were Mable Prosser and Ray Earl.

Howard county Marriage:
Charles L. King, of Riceville, Iowa, farmer, age 59, 2nd marriage, b. NY, Father: George King, Mother: Emaline Stillwell. He married Elizabeth Bechorst, nee Richter, of Riceville, Iowa, age 39, 2nd marriage, b. New Minister, Wisconsin, Father: William Richter, Mother: Catherine Vogedes. They were married at Immaculate Conception Church, Riceville, Iowa by Father J.J. O'Brien on June 11, 1908. Witnesses were Mr. and Mrs. Anton Green.

Hope this information helps. I could not locate Charles King farm on the 1911 Mitchell county Atlas -- I expect he was renting land in Jenkins township so he wasn't listed. It appears that Julia was not buried in Riceville. When I go home to Riceville next month, I will pay a visit to the cemetery to see who George Allen King is buried next to (and will check for other King family members).
