Graham, Iowa


October 2005


Gerry has been bitten by the genealogy bug, so we did a little digging in Iowa.  Graham, Iowa, is no longer even a town, but it was in 1900 when Gerry's mother was born.  Thanks to some leads from Beverly, the cousin we met in Wisconsin, we hit the jackpot in the area.  We found a 91 year old cousin who still lives in Graham and she provided lots of names and dates.  We also discovered that two Bolsinger sisters married two of his mother's brothers.  There are still a lot of Bolsingers living in the area.  Hopefully we will be able to compile all the information we collected and make it available to the rest of the family.  But it was kind of neat to make such progress on his side.
