Would anyone know if there might be records kept in Wapello or Jefferson Co Ia of Indians who changed their Name?
I am looking for information on a John Smith born in Libertyville, lived in Agency also Eldon and Ottumwa. We think he was the son of Samuel Smith. John was born in the 1850's. He married a Mary Stater in about 1870 in Wapello
Co Ia. He was hung in Ottumwa by a mob for killng the sheriff in the early 1870's.
Does anyone out there have any Smith Family info for Wapello or Jefferson Co? Maybe something you have might fit.
