Brocketts inTN, IL and IA

Since my last posting I have found a bit more information which only leads to more questions. I believe that my Brocketts came to IA from IL. Calvin Brockett was the son of Frederick and Elizabeth Ventress, born ca 1821, probably in TN. He was mar. in IL to Rowena Hall and his first two children (Daniel Lee, b. 15 Apr 1845,d.1922 and Elizabeth Ann b.5 Nov 1846;mar1 Edward Caldwell, mar 2 Wm Powers d 1929) were born in IL. The next eight children were born in Runnells, Polk Co, IA. Of the nine children who lived to be adults all but one seems to have remained in Polk Co but I have been unable to trace them or their descendants. I would appreciate any information on these people or their descendants(including the two listed above): Tamsy b. 1850, IA; mar. Nobel B. Caldwell 1870; d.1931(mine); Lowry Leslie b.1860 d 1924 Menominie, WI?; Mary L. b.1848, d.1927; Milton Howard b. 1854?,mar. Sara A.McCall,d.1943; Alemeda A, b. 1856, mar. Jarvis Person?; Orlando Mitchell b. 1858 mar. Ellen Mahan; and, WM. Stanton b. 1862. Thank you for your help.
