John and Katherine Smith Kepford 1800's Iowa

I am a direct descendant of John and Katherine Smith Kepford who eventually located and died in North Liberty, Iowa.

My line of descent is their daughter Eliza Kepford Alt, my grandfather Roland Harlan Alt, and my father Joseph Abner Alt.

I have been in contact with and shared information with Gary Merrill. The one item I think might be new to people is an article in a Davenport, Iowa newspaper which interviewed Mary Kepford Honn, sister to Eliza, daughter of John and Katherine. It gives a few family details. She was 94 years old when she was interviewed. I would be glad to send it to anyone who is interested.

I also noticed someone was looking for info about Aretas Elmer Kepford. I have a scanned image of the announcement of his marriage to Effie. I can send that as well.

I have a few photos and other things regarding the local Honn's, Luce's, Tranter's and Kepford's. I have photos of John and Katherine and Eliza and her husband Joseph.

I work full time as a computer teacher, so don't have too much time to work on history, but really enjoy it, so am glad to share what I have.
