I know this message is really old but thought I would respond with the little I know. My great-grandmother Catherine Dolly was from Rock Island, Illinois. She married William Joens from Davenport Iowa, born 1860. I wonder how they'd met... Perhaps he went to visit cousins in Rock Island? Eventually they settled in Michigan and had two children. I just started doing this a couple of days ago and am amazed at the number of Joens family members.
