My brick wall is the HAGEDORN family originally found on census in Iowa.
1885 census Webster Co. Douglas Township, Iowa
RUSSELL, William, age 62 farmer born Vermont
HAGGERDORN, Gus age 44 farmer b. Germany
. Sarah L. age 22 keeping house, b. Illinois
, William age 1 born Iowa
1895 census Webster Co. Iowa Douglas township
page 446, residence # 11
RUSSELL, William age 82 VT. farmer, Prot.
HAGEDORN, August age 56 Germany, farmer, Prot.
, Sarah age 32 Illinois Cong.
, Willie age 11, Iowa
. Lee age 9, Iowa
,Lark age 7, Iowa
, Harry age 5 Iowa
, Sadie age 3, Iowa
, Edna age 0 Iowa
By early 1900's they were in Paducah, Ky, Lark, my father, was in
Saline co. Arkansas by 1917 when he enlisted in Army for WW1.
Will ended up in Mississippi, and Edna "Pearl" married an Easley and
was in Denver CO. with her daughter Gertrude Easley when she died. She
went by Pearl. Sarah "Sadie" married Jesse Carl COX in Paducah and
they had one son, Jesse Carl Cox, Jr. Sadie died in Paducah, Ky. Lee
married and I think farmed in Paducah and died there in late 1940's.
Harry was in Paducah in late 1929's and everyone lost track of him. Heard he
worked on Golden Gate Bridge in CA. and then heard no more
Daisy Hagadorn was born in Iowa in 1898 and her mother died there. after
that is when they ended up in Paducah, Ky. Daisy may have been adopted or
raised by a neighbor family. I am still looking but not having much
help would be appreciated. Thanks Doris Hagedorn Holmes
