OOOHHHH, I just got some great new info on my ggrandfather/nothers' wedding. They were married 2-16-1887 in the M. E. Church in Charles City, Iowa. Pastor was R. W. Coates or Goates!! Now--- what how in the world can I use this to find James Kendrick's parents names?? Were the M. E. church records destroyed in a tornado, which I would like to know more about. Did three methodist churches combine, as a kindly elderly church secretery told me. And was the M. E. church mainly German folk, as she stated??
I am reserching James Kendrick and Amanda Shannon (she was from Chickasaw county).
I am going to bet he lived in Floyd co., but it is unknown where. ANY, I mean ANY info would be greatly appreciated!!! Kay Neubauer
