Our WILD-KAY family from Cumberland, England to Grant Co. Wisconsin to Springville (NW of Whittier), Linn Co. Iowa. David's brother, John, also came to Iowa and farmed in Jackson Co.  Our ancestor David WILD returned to the land of his birth in 1904 and 1914. Other family members have traveled to Cumberland Co. as well. The following are some pictures and documents from these travels.
