In the 1856 Dubuque Co., Iowa state census is a listing for a place of origin as I. O. My questions is ... is the Ontario? The census taker wrote out the complete name for Iowa with no abbreviation.

I.O. is not a known abbrevation for Canada West as Ontario was known at that time.

What do previous & subsequent census (or other records) show as place of birth for this person?
