|Bio and Links|
I am an Iowa native - born here and still living in the great state of Iowa. I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years. I have a BA in Psychology/Humans Services and not only complete research to find the names, places, and stories of families but also the patterns of behaviors that evolve in a family line. These relationships within the family are part of what defines who we are. Through researching for myself and others, I have learned about how things like alcoholism, mental health (depression, PTSD, etc.) and socioeconomic situations can change a family for generations. |
We are all trying to trace our own roots as well as help others find theirs as well. Please be RESPECTFUL!
Many people seem to want to "hoard" memorials and compete for the largest number of added/managed memorials on this web site. This is not me. I do research and share information for the knowledge and preservation of all our family histories.
Please remember to be kind and not rude when making requests for changes.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

|D Giese||Sparr family|
There are several family members buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Red Oak, Iowa. I was wondering if you ever get a chance, would you mind taking a picture of their headstones? They do not have a memorial as yet. Please email me if you are able to find them (firstname.lastname@example.org)
K. E.(Klaus Edward) Sparr 1865-?
(his wife is Alma Sparr who does have a memorial)
Arvid Carl Sparr 1897-1989
Elizabeth R. Sparr 1899-1991
Theodore E. Scheerbarth 1866-1953
Eva "Kate" Scheerbarth 1869-1939
Thank you so much!

Will wonders never cease! On newspapers.com today, I found this obituary, and it answered lots of questions I had.
I hope you can access it (although I wouldn't be surprised if you already had it).
|LoCinda Hennerberg||RE: Priscilla|
Thanks---this is fascinating and confusing all at the same time. Here's what I know from the U.S. census: in 1910, J.O. was married to Olive, who died in 1917. In 1920, the census shows him married to Euphemia; by 1930 he was widowed, and finally the 1940 census shows him married to a much younger woman named Anna.
If what you have found is true that J. O. married Priscilla in 1919, two years after his first wife died, there are a few things I can think of off the top of my head. Could it be that Priscilla and Euphemia are the same person, that her real name was Euphemia but she went by the nickname Priscilla (or the other way around)?? Since Priscilla died in 1927, that would explain why he was listed as a widower on the 1930 census.
If I was a mystery writer (and I'm not!) it would be a grand plot line to suggest that he had two wives at the same time. OK, forget I ever said that. ;)
I have lots of relatives who live or have lived in Iowa. As a girl growing up, family reunions were always bet attended when they were in Wilsonville, NE, and then in later years in Iowa. (I'm originally from NW Kansas myself, and oddly enough lived in three different Iowa cities before settling in TX.)
I would love to hear your thoughts about this new information. The more I find out, the more I realize I don't know!
Thank you, Iowa Girl, for sharing your findings with me. I am very new at this whole genealogy thing, and the bug has bitten me pretty hard.
I do not believe Priscilla was married to Julius Orlando Stone in 1919. I believe there were two J. O. Stones. The J. O. who is buried in Wilsonville, NE (who I found on findagrave.com and is my great-grandfather) is listed in the 1920 census as being married to Euphemia Stone.
How did you come to the conclusion that Priscilla married J. O. Stone of Wilsonsville, NE? Isn't genealogy an interesting subject?

do you know any more on this man Earl Petty. I think he might be my grandmas brother but don't know. could you help me with any info.
|L. DeWitt||RE: #91841353|
Before I found out about epigenes in 2007, I had concluded in the early 1990's that I could influence my health through nutrition. As a result, I have completely changed my possible "family" path. It took decades, and now the multiple physical abandonments (instead of breakdown) by my mother, changing the dysfunction in my "trauma circuitry" (Dr. Robert Scaer's term), and with Dr. Candace Pert's information (drugs work because there is a receptor for an internal substance,)I no longer have a systemic malfunction. I am finally functioning the way "normal" people should. How to be healthy should not be a secret.
|L. DeWitt||RE: #91841353|
Thank you so much! Several months ago I wrote to Pat O'Dell and he/she (?) sent me the info about Raleigh because I could not find any info about him.
I recently finished my memoir and I included my thoughts about epigenes and their possible influence on me. Research is indicating that the experiences of our predecessors influences us. Both the death of Raleigh and Darthula greatly affected my grandmother (Maxine Stevenson Akers) and because of additional personal experiences influenced me.
Raleigh also passed away before my great Aunt's Phala and Ardith were born and they eventually had numerous institutionalized breakdowns. This info is also included in my book.
BTW: I originally contacted Pat O'Dell because, ironically, not only did my mother's side of the family live in this area of Iowa, my father's side did also!
Elizabeth Pearl Orth (daughter of my great grandfather's sister (DeWitt/Fisher)) lived in Clarinda b: February 25, 1888 d. December 21, 1977.
I also have a postcard my grandfather DeWitt wrote to Harry Dugan Shaumbaugh, Iowa he never mailed (it even has a stamp on it!)He closes with "your cuz."
Was wondering why Andresen
is the spelling for this entry
Dora Mathilda Andresen Rhamy
I am her great grand daughter and family lore told to me by my grandmother (Dora's daughter) was that the family name was changed from Andresen to Anderson for some reason.
Was wondering why it's listed (correctly I believe) as Andresen.
Thx for all your work with this. I live in the Pacific Northwest and your work makes this accessibly to me.
BTW: Rhamy was Dora's second marriage after having nine children.
