Take a look at the attached picture of 1901 Springfield Township, Scott County, Iowa. Look specifically at the upper left corner of section 13. This is the first thing I have found that actually has their name on it other that Carl and Ernestina Sophia Johana Eggert’s headstones (Son John Eggert also). Carl and Fredericka were the parents of Dads Grandmother on his father’s side. I have to do some more looking now. This could be their son, Carl Eggert b. 1855.

In Springfield, Cedar, Iowa per the 1900 census

1880 Census for Liberty, Clinton, IA. says “Charles” Eggert
