I'm researching John C. Speer and Nancy Patterson. They moved from Westmoreland County, PA (just across the river from Apollo, Armstrong County, PA) to Blue Grass, Scott County, Iowa about 1867. Nancy Patterson was Letitia's aunt. Letitia's father, Robert McKissen, was a physican, merchant and the first mayor of Apollo. Do you know when the McKissen's or the Herron's moved to Iowa? How about when the Herron's moved to Georgia?

Hi! Greg, I have looked into my families old letters to answer your questions on when McKissen's and Herron's move to Iowa or to Georgia but I didn't find the answers. I would like to exchange Group Sheets with you on the Pattersons, and Herrons and a Group Sheet on John C. Speer and Nancy Patterson. Sorry I took so long in answering. Gaylin C.

From census data, the James Herron family is in Blue Grass, Iowa in 1860 where he is listed as a farmer. From marriage records for their children, it looks like they spent most of that decade in Iowa. In the 1880 census, James Herron is in Dalton, Georgia, listed as a merchant, but the Hugh Skiles family is still in Iowa, listed as a grocer. You can email me, gregoryspeer@worldnet.att.net.
