  1. My parents, Bill and Sarah Rolow, were managers of the Webster County Home when it was in existence. I grew up there as a child. I have not lived in Iowa for many years and am rarely in Iowa. I would like some help in researching the County Home, including any pictures, articles or records regarding the history of the institution. I recently did a search on regarding Rolow relatvies. I found a U.S census record from 1940 that my granfather, Louis Rolow, had filled out re: the County Home. The census named all of the residents and I was shocked to see many names I had recognized from my time living there, 1956 to 1969. I also saw that my grandfather had listed the name of the County Home as the Websrer County Paupers’ Home and Insane Asylum. I would certainly appreciate any help I could garner. I want to be able to tell this story to my own children and my grandchildren. Pleas let me know the cost for the research and who I may contact. My phone number is 918-720-1860.

    I would appreciate any assistance I could get. Thank you.

  2. I am the g-granddaughter of David and Elise Kolb Fessler.
    Recently photographs of Fort Dodge and people c. 1900-1920 have come into my possession. For example, there is a picture of a hot air baloon in a park with Boston Store written on it. Also, some parades and a golf course.
    Would you have a suggestion of what I should do with them. Would your archives be interested or are you overwhelmed with pictures already?
