Ira Sargent and his family won't be mentioned in Casefile Clues for a while, but that doesn't mean I'm not working on him.
This is the entry from page 8 of Soap Creek Township, Davis County, Iowa, for the Ellen Butler that very likely is Ira's wife. The question is where to go next on Benjamin who appears to be her likely father.
Ideas can be posted as responses here or as replies to this post on facebook. I might not have time to reply individually to suggestions, but an upcoming issue will discuss where I'm headed on this family. This is a family where the research is actually in progress, so I really don't know the answer.
