Sanchez-Tereso Family Deed, Keokuk County, IA

Nicholas Sanchez-Tereso was my 3rd great-grandfather.  He was born in Spain, married in Germany – where all of his children were born, and died in Keokuk county, Iowa.

This is a deed I found during my trip to Sigourney, IA earlier this year.  The transcription follows the images.

    I have quite a bit of high quality information on this family my maternal grandmother was Dorthea Louisa Maria Sanchez y Tereso from Eastland Iowa. She spent her retirement (and a lot of $) going geneology. I had documents from Spain and Austria. I also ahave a few personal belongings of Dorthea Sanchez y Tereso’s the daughter of Nicolos.

    Frederick Sanchez Tereso was also my 2nd Great Grandfather on my Paternal grandmother’s side. My grandmother was his granddaughter. She was a child of Matilda Viola…always went by Viola and my grandmother was named Viola Elsonetta, called Netta by her siblings but went by Viola in her adult life. I have in my possession a Civil War tintype and a handwritten will of Frederick that was in possession of his dtr. Nancy (SanchezTereso) Morgan. She lived with my Grandmother in her later yrs. and left there in the attic a trunk with the tintype and papers. At about 12 yrs. old I expressed interest in them…the only one in the immediate family who did and have treasured them since. I am currently having the tintype digitally restored and professionally framed.ReplyCancel
