I am originaly from Des Moines Iowa, as you probably already know Ankeny is a very well know name in the Midwest, there were two brothers, because of a rift one brother added an extra E to make it Ankeney, same family. The Ankeney , Ankeny family was and is very big in banking and retail in the greater Midwest area. First Bank Systems was founded by the family, and part of the family married into the Dayton family, which later became Target Corporation. The family migrated from the Xenia Ohio area at the turn of the century. The Ankeney brothers out of Des Moines, cornered the linseed oil market in the late 1800's and made a fortune. If you have any questions there are several books published regarding the Ankeney, Ankeny family history in the United States. Original French
