In Reply to: Backus Family from IA to MT by Eileen Arndt of 7795

Jesie Backus, my grandfather homesteaded in montana arround the turn of the century, lived in the Great Falls area.
I had allways believed he came from missouri
We have a geenology about the family somwhere, I will have to find it.
Never studied this stuff before. He probably had sisters or brothers, but I dont know....It could have been Iowa.
There are close to 20000 "Backus" names in this country. I will be in Mesa, AZ soon, and will check out there stuff.
I believe that the family was in New York stat before the cicil war.
I hope we can make a connection..
Keith Backus, Puyallup, WA.
