One of the items I found the other night while reviewing search results at Newspapers.com was an announcement in the local social news of the Iola Register concerning George Solifelt and Tennie. Her name is listed incorrectly as Jennie. Still not yet able to prove the uncle / niece relationship but feel confident that this mention is the George & Tennie I've been researching.This was during a time period for which I didn't have much information for George and Tennie other than a deed from them to Arthur T Cundy Lot 6 Harmons Sub-division an Add to Iola $1020(deed transfer from the Iola Register) Did they not go? If they did, they were back in Iola by the time of the 1930 Census. What happened? They lived at 616 N 1st at the time of the 1920 Census. Tennie is not listed in the 1929 City Directories of Iola but George is listed with a residence of 711 S. Jefferson Ave. I wasn't able to find an Iola directory for 1928. A search for Fort Dodge or Ford County directories for the years in question didn't turn up any online. Need to contact the library for that area to see if any directories for those years exist. So now I'm wondering what was going on in Fort Dodge that made them want to move there about 1927.
