Going with a guess that the missing ancestor "Valentine Bernhard" left Iowa..headed towards CA where the rest of the family was...but didn't make it? I've heard that after the 1880s' there was alot of free land etc. and he was definitely a farmer...so I'm guessing Kansas...where...I don't have a clue...
