Hi, I added an edit to Charles Croswell and it is incorrect. The info was for his grandson, not him. Sorry about the error. Melodey

RE: Eleanor Gordon
Sue,
Eleanor had 3 possibly four children buried on her
lot-one stone has sunk into the ground badly and
perhaps you cannot see it. All her children's stones are facing the street.Those are the children
she lost before they reached adulthood. She had
other children who lived to adulthood, and they are
buried elsewhere using married names , etc.
Eleanor's stone is of a different material and of course placed in the ground at a later date than
her babies/young children. Her husband seemed to
have abandoned the whole family (according to family lore), I can't locate him anywhere.
If you think her children's stones can be photographed please add to the Find a Grave. Her
family who live in Canada, whom I am helping round
all the deceased together for them are thrilled to
find what I have been able to get from Iowa City.
Your job must be very fascinating, and I know it
brings great joy to many people.

Thank you
Janis Peacock

Eleanor Gordon
Thanks you sooooo much for completing this photo
of Eleanor Gordon's gravesite.
I have been working with the Abbott family for 4 years -helping them put together their Genealogy.
They live in Canada. Back in @1911 two daughters
were taken away from their father-by the mother-
she took them to Canada to live with her mother, and
step father. Originally they came from Iowa City.
The children were left in Canada and never saw the
mother again. The Abbott family in Canada often wished they could find out what happened. As a Genealogist I was able to find the mother (and the story of the rest of her life), and what happened to the father, where their people came from, lived died, and were buried. Ended up then they wanted the Gordon side of the family as well-so did that
also. Now with the new photo of the grave on
FIND A GRAVE it will be another page to put into
their book. Thanks again I look forward to getting this into the mail tomorrow.

Thanks again
