On the RootsWeb page, in the strip at the top, click on Family Trees. On the next page, click on Advanced Search. Then fill the blanks on the next page with information for Dominic KRIER. Notice that Dave Halm has provided more complete information. Nicholas KRIER, b. Feb. 1826, Luxembourg, grocer, m. Margaretta MEIS, b. ca. 1835, Luxembourg; also m. Elizabeth STOLTZ, b. Jan. 1833. Census of 1870, Tete des Morts Twp., Jackson Co., IA, Nicholas, 44. Census of 1880, St. Donatus, Jackson Co., IA, Nicholas, 53, postmaster & dry goods merchant; wf. Margaret, 45. Census of 1895, Tete des Morts Twp., 69.

Children of Nicholas KRIER.

Dominic, b. ca. 1852, Luxembourg
Maria, b. 6 Sep. 1854, Jackson Co., IA
(Mary) Johanna, b. ca. 1863
Elizabeth, b. ca. 1866
Peter D., b. ca. 1868
Michael Ludwig, b. 25 Aug. 1872, IA
Alois Edmund, b. 5 Oct. 1874, IA
Rosa, b. ca. 1878, IA
Theodore M., b. 7 Sep. 1880, IA.

I noticed the gap between births of Maria, 1854, & Johanna, 1863. That could mean that other children died young, or perhaps Elizabeth was the first wife and remarriage was delayed a few years.

FamilySearch database of the 1880 Census, Domonic, 29, miller and ag. agent, he & parents b. Luxembourg; wife Katy, 22, Iowa Hanover Luxembourg; son Henry, 2, IA. [Unless this Henry died young and another was born in 1882, the birth year should be ca. 1878.]

For proof of the marriage, go to USGenWeb > Iowa > Jackson County. The search engine shows Catholic marriage of Domin(i)que KRIER, 5 Jan. 1878, to Katherine HOXMIER. Since the marriage was Catholic, there should be more information available from the church, but, for privacy reasons, they'll probably want to check your relationship to the family.

Social Security Death Index verifies dates for William KRIER (11 Jan. 1915 - Feb. 1985, Biloxi, Harrison, MS) SSN issued Louisiana.

Good Luck!
