I am trying to find some information regarding the Methodist-Episcopal Academy of Charles City. It is listed on my grandparent's wedding license of 1920. The minister is listed as a Rev. W. J. Connery (can't read last name). Does anyone know where this chapel was located or where these records might be? Thanks!

I don't have an answer, but when you find out I would like to know. My great-grandfather, Frederick C. Steffler, was a Methodist-Episcopal minister and lived in Charles City at that time.

Jeannette, will be glad to let you know what I learn about the Methodist-Episcopal Academy. I was told to try the Iowa Wesleyan College at Mt. Pleasant, IA . I e-mailed the archivist there, but haven't heard anything yet. R.P.

In the History of the United Methodist Church of Iowa they refer to the Charles City College a Methodist school that was merged with Morningside College in 1914. Facilities and funds were transfered to Sioux City.I found no mention of an Academy Chapel.

Howard, thanks for the information. Hmmmm. I will have to think about this. Was wondering if this Methodist-Episcopal Academy was possibly a parochial high school my grandfather may have attended. I don't think he ever went to college. He maybe didn't even finish high school. Wish I had asked these questions years ago when people were still living. Thanks again.

Oh heavens, this is so close to the question I have. My ggrandfather was married in the M. E. Church (this is all I have, but the lady thot that meant Methodist Episcipol Church)
in Charles City in 1887. By a reverend R. W. Coates or Goates. The lady thot this was a church of people of German descent? ANY knowledge of this would be GREATLY appreciated. I am studying James Kendrick married to AManda Shannon. Thanks to all.

Also, was Charles City known as St Charles Township in 1870? There is a St CHarles township listed in the floyd co. census in 1870, and I was guessing that this was one and the same. thanks
Did the M. E. Church records get destroyed? The marriage I am looking for took place on Feb. 16, 1887. nqh@earthlink.net

Kay,
The M.E. Church is Methodist-Episcopal. I don't know where any records might be. My gr-gr-grandfather was a M.E. minister affiliated with the Northwest German Conference of the M.E. Church. He lived and pastored in Charles City at one time, but not in the time frame you are searching.
Also, St. Charles Township and Charles City are two separate entities in the census records. You would want to check both areas. Sorry I couldn't be much help - perhaps someone else can. Good luck.

Hello Jeanette,
Thanks for your reply! Do you happen to know where St. Charles Township is in relationship to Charles City? I think both are in Floyd co. Yes? Kay

Hi Kay,
St. Charles Township is just southwest of the city of Charles City. I would imagine very few miles. Do your records show thye lived in St. Charles Township? If you know the eaxt time frame and township, I may be able to help you with a census search. Let me know.

Hi Jeanette, and thank you!

James Kendrick was married 2-16-1887, in the M. E. Church, in Charles City, Floyd co. I have noticed an Albert Kendrick, in St Charles township in the 1870 census. I cannot find ANYWHERE-- James Kendrick in an Iowa census. I wonder if the Albert Kendrick is his uncle?? I wonder if he lived with Albert. Any way of finding that?
Amanda SHannon- his bride, lived in Chickasaw co, I thot. Her father was William Shannon and Cordelia (Delia) Bohn-Shannon. I think Amanda was the last to leave the nest, and after she married, William and Cordelia moved to Thornton. Where is Thornton, ??? cannot find it on the map. Later, they moved on to Ethan ,South Dakota.
Any little thing you find is truly appreciated. My dad's 77th birthday is coming up, and I would dearly love to find new info on his heritage. We are having a small reunion of the Kendricks , and would love to know more about them. James Kendrick was raised by friends or relatives, loving his parents on the great lakes when an infant. His parents were said to have been born in Pa. James claimed to have been born in CAnada, and claimed to be of "German" decent.
Any and ALL leads are appreciated GREATLY!!

I see also, that Hannah SHannon was buried in a tiny grave in the southeast corner of Riverton township.
