Hilgefort, 1870's and 80's

Joseph Hilgefort was married to Maria Gertrude Wendel. They migrated from Mercer County Ohio to Iowa approximately 1870 with sons, Barney and Clemens. Clemens must have died in Iowa before 1880. In Iowa they had 2 daughters, Gertrude and Susan in 1873 and 1878. There may have been another in between. In the 1870 census they were in Delaware County and in the 1880 census they were in Marion Twp.,Plymouth County. Maria Gertrude was born in Ohio about 1846 and must have died in Iowa somewhere between 1880 and 1887 when we know the remaining family were back in Ohio. The only information I have are those 2 censuses and some information from Mercer County Ohio. There aren't many death records available and I would like to know when Gertrude died and also son, Clemens, who was born about 1868. Also a possible obituary but they probably weren't there long enough to bother with that.
