My mother, Julia Ann (Switzer) Pennington was born in Gowrie, IA.
Her brother Rueben or Ruben died in Gowrie.
I'm looking for anyone that might have information about thier ancestors.
Arthur & Mattie (Moore) Switzer were their parents. Arthur's father was John Franklin who served in the 17th Iowa Inf. during the Civil War.
Some in this family went by Swisher.
