There was a probate record in Winneshiek Iowa for George Blass who passed away 23 January 1869 - probate to wife Mary.

Not finding parents on a 1850/51 census - USA or Canada.

Are we going to get any acknowledgement from the poster, we've obviously spent a lot of time researching on this one. ???
