Who Are We and Where Did We Come From?

I am still in the beginning stages of my research, but here are the basics for anyone who may be interested.

Our family is made from the following Iowa families:

Hall
Brubaker
Bentroth
Bast

The Hall family was said to have come from England, although I have not traced it that far yet. 
I don't know about the origin of the Brubaker family, but they are also part of the Blakeslee family.

The areas of Iowa were: Waterloo, Denver, Waverly.

The Bentroth and Bast families immigrated from Germany.




Our family is made from the following Kansas families:

Bahl
Vogel
Davis
Burdette
Simmons

The Bahl and Vogel families both immigrated from Kamenka, Russia.

The Davis and Burdette families are old southern state families.
I have not yet found their origins of immigration.
The Simmons family so far are from Kansas.

The Kansas families mainly resided in Parsons, Kansas.

Our family is made from the following Pennsylvania families:

Gagliano

White
McCormick

The Gagliano and Falcone families immigrated from Italy to Pennsylvania.
The White and McCormick families were also in Pennsylvania, but I have not traced their immigration yet.

Toole
Rash

The Toole family is from Texas and Alabama.
The Rash family is from Missouri.
I have not traced the immigration of these families yet.
