How lucky I was to find your site! I'd love to know the ancestors of Joseph C. Branson who was born in Ohio about 1852. I've been doing just a bit of family tree searching for my grandson. His maternal side has a Jessie Florence Cook( 1873-1942) who married Alton Lindley Branson (1875-1936). They are both buried in the Greenwood Cemetery (Muscatine?). Now I can't find much on Alton's father's ancestors, except for the census of 1880 in Springdale, Cedar, Iowa in which Joseph C. Branson who was born in Ohio about 1852, was his father. Family members tell me that Joseph C. Branson's wife was Louise Eaton (her name has been transcribed in a different fashion), and Joseph C.'s parents were also born in Ohio. Joseph C. BRANSON 28 born Ohio Lamaria L. BRANSON Wife 28(family say Louise Eaton) Alton L. BRANSON Son 4(married Jessie F. Cook) Aaron C. BRANSON Son 3 Earl C. BRANSON 2 Jessie L. BRANSON 8M these children all born in Iowa. Census1880 Springdale, Cedar, Iowa Thank you!
