  1. I was born in Keokuk, Iowa and grew up on a farm near Argyle in Lee County. I received a draft notice in 1965 and married a girl from Pensacola in 1969. I have not spent much time in Iowa since then but I miss Iowa very much. I received a Ph. D. in Texas in 1981 and have lived in the South most of my life.
    I have worked on my family genealogy all of my life, and will mail copy of my work to you someday — and hope to stop and visit you someday. I have a brother who lives in Thurman, Iowa now.
