Augustus and Lurene Rowe France
Hi Jan. Sent you an email that I was following the France family (Augustus grandson of Daniel Sanford via daughter Eunice). I found them. Had four kids, Rowe, Foster, Una, Corene. I also just found the obit for Augustus's wife Lurene (not Lauren) Rowe France, who you entered into database as burial unknown. Will send requests for updates via findagrave links. I'm also going to post obit as jpg on memorial. If you want me to remove jpg, let me know.

Don't have an exact date for death of Lurene, just that she was buried 5 March 1931, so probably died ca 3 March. Will ask my cousin, who started all this, to look up exact death date at NY State library.

Son Foster is buried in Oklahoma and on findagrave. Sent in request to link him to parents and wife. Hopefully the link will be done.

Son Rowe and daughter Corene died CA, couldn't find either on findagrave. Corene married multiple times, died under surname Pollack.

Daughter Una married William Frederick, died in Cobleskill, I entered into the database, and wiell transfer to you if you want her.

Neither Foster nor Una appear to have had any children.

They were a medical family. Corene was either a nurse or a chiropractor. Foster was a dentist. Rowe was a physician. Not bad for kids who's father died when they were young.

Have followed all the kids, have censuses, some deaths, etc. Will send them to you or your daughter if you want them. If you want me to send them to your daughter, I'll need her email address

Hope to hear from you soon.

You had rejected the name correction here & I was just curious if you believe the spelling on the stone is wrong?

RE: Mary Jane & William Clyde Henry
This is a private cemetery operated by the Ladies Social Gathering Inc. since 1859 and early records are spotty. The cemetery's board walked the cemetery in 1995 and combined their transcriptions with previous records to publish a book of burials in 1998. That list is online at It lists Addie Howe as the owner of the cemetery lots for the burials of both Mary and William. Mary Henry is listed as the stepdaughter of Joseph Howe, husband of Addie, in the 1910 census. In the 1925 Iowa Census, Addie's parents are listed as William Sullivan and Mary Coffin, so it appears this is the mother of Mary Jane and William. I have not been able to find anything further on Addie, Joseph or Charles. I do not live in Iowa Falls and am not familiar with what obituary resources may be available there.
I am not related. If you are and would like transfers, I'm happy to do that. Thanks for the information.

lester Stump
you provided information on Find A Grave for Lester Stump, son of Solomon and Magdalena Stump.

Do you know anything about his brother Francis Stump? He married my great aunt Louisa Frances Jamison.

I'm trying to find out something about the Jamison side.

Any information would be appreciated, or maybe you might know of someone who knows anything about the Jamison side.
