I am not sure just who you are looking for but my grandfather and grandmother came from Iowa and settled in Kansas. I have a second cousin who has worked on the ancestor. You can get in touch with her.
Her e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
she may be able to help you or even each other.
I know she is looking for ancestor by name Jared Luther
Use my name as part of the subject as she will not know this maybe coming to her. Good Lucille
