I have a copy of the 1870 census listing Fred and Mary Kerkow and their family. You probably have this by now. I am with the Mower County Genealogical Society of Austin,MN and am looking for information on a Harold Kerkow, who died in Nederland Tx on Feb.3 1979. He was born in MN in Mar. of 1917 to Harry and Ione Skelley Kerkow. His granparents were Charles and Mary Koethe Kerkow. I am looking for any information on his family, as well as, his obituary. While doing this research I have located other Kerkow families, some who have done considerable research.

I was just trying to find my line of Skelley's who are from Calif. and Iowa and your Kerkow-Skelley caught my attention. My sister married a Kerkow from North or South Dakota. My line of Skelley's lived in Long Beach and Pasadena from about 1900 before that it was Iowa.

Susan, thank you for the reply. I had email correspondence last yr. from a California Skelley ( Linda ) married to Kerkow, whose family was from the midwest. It may have been your sister. I did some research for a man on a Harold ( Harry ) KERKOW m. Ethel Ione SKELLEY. They both lived in Austin, MN at the time of the marriage in 1913, but the Skelley's were from Iowa and did move back to Iowa. Harry and Ethel ended up in Wisconsin. Harry's brother Roy Kerkow, moved to CA as a young man and remained there. I know nothing about him and neither did a nephew here in MN...in fact he'd never heard of his uncle Roy! Amazing to me. Ethel's Dad was, William H. , Mom was Jennie; children: Florence M., Howard and Imogene M. Skelley. In 1910 they were in Iowa and in 1920 were in Iowa.

thank you for your reply. It sounds like my sister. her name is Linda and they live in So. Ca. Sorry to say it sounds like its not the same Skelley's. My Dads family were in Iowa when my grandfather was born, In or around 1896. Kerkow is not that well knowen a name, at least not in Ca. Neither is Skelley. Funny how names cross.
