I'm the new messageboard administrator for Agens. The name is in my wife's family tree, four generations back in Iowa. Julia Agens married Harlow L. Erskine of Monona County, Iowa. Their son, Fred Erskine of Grangeville Idaho, had a daughter, Alice Erskine Lemons, of Lewiston, Idaho. She was my wife's grandmother. There are not a lot of Agens out there. My research suggests the family came from England via Canada; but I am still researching that.
