I am researching the W.T. and Orsavilla (Blakesley) WELLS family, which resided in Oakdale IA in the 1860 to 1880 time period. W.T. (or W.Y.) was born about 1823 in NY, and Orsavilla was born about 1830. They had children Lucy, George, Cameron, Francis, Walter, Edgar, Egbert, Elizabrth, Almira, Mary, Geneva, Carrie and Jessie between 1846 and 1869, with the ones from Edgar on down born in Iowa. The probably settled in Howard County about 1856.
I am also researching the BALDWIN family that lived in Chester IA in the 1870 to 1880 time period. Lucretia Baldwin (born ca 1829 in VT) was head of household, with children Orange, Lester, Fred and Judson. I don't know the father's given name.
The son Fred Baldwin (b. ca 1855 in NY) married a Matilda --?-- (b. ca 1873 in MN) about 1897, and resided in Chester in the 1910 to 1930 census years. They had children Fred, Tucker, Opal, Henry and Everett Baldwin.
I am looking for death records for W.T. Wells (before 1880), Orsavilla Wells (after 1900), Lucretia Baldwin (before 1910), Lucretia's husband --?-- Baldwin (before 1870), Fred Baldwin (after 1930) and Matilda Baldwin (after 1930). Can someone point me to the place to obtain death records? Are there county death indexes avaialble?
Is anyone else researching these families? If so, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
