We are looking for information on George Foland (b 1863 in Iowa) wife's name Nina. He was living in Waterville, Douglas Co., Washington in 1900. Some of their children were born in South Dakota - location unknown, and some were born in Washington state. We believe he was working at a sawmill in Pennington Co., South Dakota in 1880 at age 17. We do not know Nina's maiden name or where they got married. We do not know where they moved to after 1900.
There is a possibility that George is related to Henry Foland and wife Malissa who are living in Clay Co., South Dakota in 1875 - 1880. Henry Foland is believed to have been born about 1830 in New York and his wife Malissa is also believed to have been born in New York about 1833. At least two of their children, Harriett G. (born ca. 1865) and William (born ca. 1868) were born in Iowa according to the 1880 U.S. Census.
Our question is: Is there a connection between George Foland and Henry and his wife Malissa? What became of George? Who are Henry's ancestors?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much.
