I found this. No death record, though.

Odds are these Packs are all related; I'd bet even money on a father and two adult sons.

They asked for father's BP and mother's BP in 1880. See above, the two living in family 900 in 1850, Thomas and Elizabeth, both born in . . . Maryland. They could still be an aunt and uncle, though.

So much for Alfred. What happened to Elvira?

(Samuel is probably John's father or brother or uncle. 37-year old Ann is probably Samuel's second wife. Not much to do in Iowa before TV, was there?)

If the citation looks familiar, it is. The Brooks are living right next door to the Packs in 1880; Alfred and most of the family on the bottom of p. 592A, Florence (Alfred's youngest) and the Brooks on the top of 592B.
