Looking for information on the families of John Thompson LaFollette (1832-1907) and William Harrison LaFollette (1845-?). Both were born in Indiana and moved with their parents to Clarke County, Iowa in the 1850's.

John T. is buried at Valley View Cemetery. He moved to Harrison County sometime before 1895. In the 1895 Iowa census, he was living with his brother, William H., in Jefferson Township. In 1900, he was living in Logan. His daughter, Mary Melvina, married C. H. Holt and had two daughters, Iva D. and Jessie Grace. Iva married Raula Sears, and Jessie married Reuben Rockwell. In 1891, Mary Melvina married William J. Knauss. They had two children, Clyde W. and Herman O. John T. had at least two other children, C. W. (female) and Joseph. Does anyone have information on these children?

William H. moved to Cass Township, Harrison County before 1880. By 1895, he had moved to Jefferson Township. In 1900, the family disappears from Harrison County. Does anyone know what happened to this family? William H. and Eliza Frances Henderson LaFollette had at least six children; William D., John T., Eliza V., Robert N., Jennie M. and Elmer L. They were born between 1874 and 1888.
