My grandfather was born in Kniffen, IA. He and his immediate family lived there several years. It was located west of Seymour, IA in Wayne County.
I have not been able to find much information, but would welcome any that may be discovered.
I have a plat book map from the 1830's, I believe, that shows Kniffen on it.

I recently came across a hand-carved wooden sign from Illinois Grove, Iowa.
It specifically reads," IPD. DIST ILL GROVE 1874."
The only thing I can find on this town is that nothing of it remains. A school was built there in 1874,
and I'm wondering if this sign isn't from that.
Can you help? Thank you!

Need information about a town named Secor. It was on the Iowa map until about the 1940's. It was on the Iowa River and was not far from Eldora, Iowa. I lived on a farm there with remaining parts of the old town.
