Louisa Morey in Iowa

Louisa Morey in Iowa

I'm searching for a Lewis Adair who married Louisa Morey. They had a daughter Fanny Nora Adair, who was born in 1901. I think in Iowa, but haven't proved that yet.

Fanny married Fred Joseph Seiler, in 1920 in Calhoun, Iowa. The info for Louisa Morey comes from Fanny's marriage license. I've not been able to find any other info.

HELP!! LOL.

Any help appreciated. Thanks, Linda

Hi Linda,

Remember to try the spelling of Louis for Lewis.
From the census records.


1900 - Iowa - Boone Co - Yell Twp - Page 285 - 14 Jun 1900
278 / 290
Adair, Louis - Head - born Apr 1863 - age 37 - Male, Married
born Illinois - father born Indiana - mother born Indiana
Labor
Adair, Louisa - Wife - born Feb. 1874 - age 26 - Female,
Married 12 years - 6 children - 4 still living -
born Illinois - father born Pennsylvania -
mother born England
Adair, Martha - daughter - born Sept. 1889 - age 10 -
single - born Iowa
Adair, Mabel - daughter - born Feb. 1893 - age 7 - single -
born Iowa
Adair, Gertrude, daughter, born Iowa
Adair, Harold - son - born Aug. 1898 - age 1 - single -
born Iowa


1910 - Iowa - Polk County - 5th Ward Des Moines - Page 231
20 Apr 1910
78 / 105 - 219 East Grand Ave.
Adair, Louis - Head - age 49, first marriage 29 years,
born Illinois, father Illinois, mother Illinois,
laborer - Buildings
Adair, Louise - Wife, age 48, first marriage 29 years,
9 children, six still living - born Iowa, Father Unk,
mother unk
Adair, Gertrude, daughter, age 17, single, born Iowa
Adair, Harold, son, age 15, single, born Iowa
teamster for Roofing Co.
Adair, Fay, daughter, age 11, single, born Iowa
Adair, Frankie, son, age 7, single, born Iowa

I assume Fay is your Fanny. The 1900 data was hard to
read and I may have made a transcription error, so you
should check it yourself. I could not find the spelling
of "Louis Adair" in the 1920 census. Also remember we don't
know who gave the information to the census taker (husband,
wife, child, neighbor).

Good luck in you research.

Hi Linda,

I did a search of the 1920 index of Iowa for Adair.
It looks like a lot of interesting things were happening
to the family and you will need to do newspaper searchs
to find out the details.

1920 - Iowa - Boone County - 2nd Ward Boone and Des Moines Twp - page 74 - 13 Jan 1920
77 / 100 - 710 Arden Street
Adair, Louie, head, age 57, divorced, born Illinois -
father born Ohio, mother born Ohio -
Clerk in Pool Hall

Adair, Frank, son, age 17, single, born Iowa,
father Illinois, mother Illinois - Laborer - Steam Railroad

1920 - Iowa - Jones County - Mens State Reformatory -
page 263 - 2 Jan 1920 - line 21
Adair, Harold - age 22, single, born Iowa, father Illinois,
mother Illinois, Laborer - Stone shed

1920 - Iowa - Calhoun County - Center: Womens Reformatory -
page 247 - 18 Feb 1920

Adair, Fay - Inmate - female, age 18, single, born Iowa,
father Iowa, mother Iowa - occupation: None

Happy Hunting,

Ron Morey
