Hi

I am looking for info regarding the following:

Richard Heath-born approx 1850
was a coal miner

wife: Anna(Annie) Luke born 1856

both born in England

Known children
John
Mary
Elizabeth
Sarah
also possibly George

I found the following in the 1935 Old Age Pensions for Monroe County IA
Turner ; Elizabeth ; Route 1 ; Frederic ; 16 Oct. 1881 ; Keokuk. Co. Iowa ; Richard Heath & Anna Luke ; Pleasant Township

I also found the family in 1880 in Lucas county. So assume they moved to Keokuk Co IA sometime between June 1880 and Elizabeth's birth in Oct 1881.

It appears Annie Heath was a member of the LDS church.

Also Richard Heath left the family sometime prior to July 1887 and was believed killed in a bar fight..that is the story in the family. Annie however did remarry in July 1887 to a Homer Thorne in Lucas County, IA

Any help would be appreciated.

Mary
