RE: Malinda Gandy
I wish Malinda's grave had a stone. It probably did have one at one time but time, weather, and lack of care take their toll on the old cemeteries. If you go to my website ( there is a photo of the cemetery as we found it; a truly sad sight.

RE: Marion Andrews
Hi Janet,

Yes, that's correct. His full name is Marion Murl Andrews. But he went by Murl, not Marion. I used to go to his house and run my little matchbox cars up and down the banister rail in front of his house, but Aunt Lutie didn't like it and thought it would scratch the paint. But Uncle Murl was a very gentle and loving person, and the patriarch of the family after his older brother Malvo had died after the horse he was riding reared up, and it fell on him and the saddle horn went into his stomach.

I know very well what everyone called him, just like I know everyone in the family calls his son Marion Dean but everyone else calls him Dean. It's a tradition in this family that most people go by their middle names. His brother Malvo was the only one of the kids that went by his first name. His dad did (and was called Jeff), his older sister (Vivian), his brother (Wayne), his other little brother (Glenn), and my grandmother (Winona or Nona).

So while you are correct in saying what his full name was, I don't need to read any draft cad to know what everyone called him.

The only addition I have made to his entry is his nickname, the name people called him. That's Murl.

Gravestone says WORLD WAR II; obituary has World War I, was that a misprint in the obituary?

RE: Mary McCusker Weikert Clarkson
I am looking for information on the child of Henry Starkey and Mary McCusker Starkey. They were married in the 1870s at Council Bluffs, Iowa. Mary was a student at the Iowa School for the Deaf. Henry left her after the birth of the child.The child might have also been deaf and adopted or raised by Henry's family.Mary later married John Weikert and moved to Lyon County, Iowa.If you have any information, please write.

This is all I can find.
