I'd love to hear from anyone who may have links to this family :)
Here is what info I have:
David Pewsey b. Oct 1807 in England d. 9 Sept 1887 in Iowa
buried in Storm Lake Cemetery, Buena Vista Co, Iowa
married to Alpharetta Homer (b. abt 1811 in England and
died 26 Sept 1891 in Iowa. Buried same as above).
Their children (as far as I can piece together):
1. Rosana Jeannette b. 6 May 1851 in West Ontario, Canada
She married Joseph David Hollingsworth. She died 10 Oct
1901 in Tonganoxie, Leavenworth Co, KS. (this is my line)
2. Emily Althier b. 9 April 1847 in McGillery, Ontario,
Canada. She married George Carl Sweet. She died 10 Nov
1923 in Storm Lake, Iowa
3. William Albert b.abt 1850 in Canada. He married Mary
Ellen Robbins. He died 2 April 1935 in Iowa.
4. David Charles born 10 Sept 1845 in Canada. He married
Josephine Gordon. He died 13 Dec 1931. In his obituary
it says he was a vetrinary surgeon.
5. Harriet She married William Marshall
6. Elizabeth She married William Cole
7. Mary Ann She married Sylvester Cole.
8. Sophia She married Peter Donaldson.
9. Hannah She married Thomas A Jones
10. Alta

Here is part of David Charles Pewsey's obituary which tells some family history:
"His parents, David and Alfreda (Homer) Pewsey, were both natives of England and were married in that country. The year 1844 witnessed their emigration to Canada and in 1869 they brought their family to the United States. locating in Clinton County, Iowa. There they resided on a homestead claim for three years, on the expiration of which period they came to Buena Vista County, where the father homesteaded another claim. He had learned the trades of carpentry and cabinet making and was a much respected and valuable citizen in the pioneer community. He gave his political allegiance to the republican party, while his religious faith was indicated by his membership in the Methodist Episcopal Church, with which his wife also identified."

I also have info on the line of Rosanna (Pewsey) Hollingsworth and I have names of some of her siblings children also. I hope we can find a common ancestor somewhere! Thanks!
