In Reply to: Gire in Iowa by Dick Hill of 14

My grandfather is Williard Jayce Gire, your grandmothers brother. Your grandmothers patents were Joseph Selby Gire and Minnie Ellen Lewis.

Jospeh Selby Gire: Born-1 Jul 1863 ,Wayne Co,Ohio..Died- 29 Dec 1924 Fairfield, Iowa..Married- 15 Mar 1887, Van Buren Co, Iowa.

Minnie Ellen Lewis: Born- 23 Nov 1868,,Iowa..Died- 6 Jun 1931,Fairfield, Iowa..

Parents of Joseph Selby Gire:
Gabriel M Gire: Born abt 1829,,Ohio...Died abt 1913,,Iowa...Married abt 1853 to Elizabeth A. Mathews: Born 19 Oct 1828,,Ohio...Died 17 May 1880,,Iowa and buried Winchester Cemetary, Iowa

Parents of Minnie Ellen Lewis:
William Edward A. Lewis: Born 12 May 1828,Champange,,CO..Died 10 Nov 1895 place unknown
Margaret Penn: Born 17 Sep 1840, Champange,,CO...Died 1925,Harding,South Dakota

I have just started investigating family history. I have children listed for Gabriel & Elizabeth Gire (6), and William & Margaret Lewis (12). I am still researching dates for their births, etc. I can send you a file when I have it more complete. By the way you list Ida sister as Glendenna but I have her as Medena Larue. Was one or the other name a nickname? So what is our relation if our grandparents were siblings?

Hope this helps
