Phillip Reed 88155780 Jenny, I see I transferred his wife, Alice, to you sometime back, but did not transfer him. I am sorry if I missed this. Did you want me to transfer him to you? I will be glad to do this.
John Davis Can you tell me if his wife's name was Nancy Bain. I have a death cert on my great grand father James Augustus Davis and it stated his parents were John Davis and Nancy Bain. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
REBECCA MUNDEN Yes, you certainly may use any photos I have posted for whatever purpose you wish. Walking cemeteries and taking photos are just a hobby for me and when I post the pictures am always hoping someone will find and enjoy!
Barnet (spelled several ways) was my great-grandfather through Jacob Henry Oswalt/Harriet Belle Collins > Goldie Florence
Barnet was an interesting man in that he married five times. spouse 1:Minerva Jane Connelly - married 6-1-1858, divorced about 1888
I haven't checked the lines for Barney's other wives because I've spent the last almost thirty years working on Dad's side of the family.
spouse 2: Alcinda PITCOCK WATSON - I don't have marriage and divorce dates
spouse 3 Amauda WATON - again I don't have dates. It was argued loud and long among my Oswalt aunts about whether Alcinda and Amauda were sisters or sisters-in-law.
Silence Daws - again no dates
Florence Smith - married 9 - 19 - 1923 (This s the grandmother that Mom remembered. Mom was born in 1917 and was very fond of her grandmother Oswalt, and especially proud of the fact that Florence was very musical. Mom had no musical talent, but made sure that my siblings and I all had piano lessons. I went on to be a semi-professional musician (my late husband and I made lap dulcimers, hammered dulcimers and folk harps which we sold from a shop in Silver Dollar City back in the early 1980s. I also sang in every choir that was available until a bout of adult onset whooping cough damaged my vocal cords in the early 1990s. But I still play the piano for various groups.)
She was not fond of her grandfather and in fact she and her sisters really had very little good to say about the man. Apparently he was a mean drunk and didn't hesitate to beat up on whoever was around when he was drunk.
You may already have most of this information about Barney's wives, but thought that you might like to read the family memories.
The bad guys are just as interesting (maybe more so) than the good guys!
James Kingen Hi Virginia, I have been searching for James and Christina Kingen for years. The James Kingen, buried at Brooklyn, Iowa, can't be George Madison Kingen's father. According to the WPA gravestone records, the James Kingen buried at Brooklyn, died in 1880 at the age of 23. My great grandmother is Anne Elizabeth Kingen Jones (George's sister). James, Christina and children were in Decatur county, Iowa in 1860. I wondered if James died in the civil war. The last trace I have of him is in a listing of the Southern Border Brigade. In 1870, Christina was in Mahaska county, Iowa with a J. Wires (not sure of the spelling) and her children, Wm., Anne, Mary, John W. and George. Christina had another daughter with Mr. Wires, as Anne's obit lists an Ella Burke as a half sister. If you have any other info on Christina, please contact me.
I will see what I can find out, either a name of the contact info of the caretaker of the cemetery or see if I can find someone to clean the headstone and let you know the info. I am not able to do this, and I know that there is a specific cleaner they use that will not damage the headstone. If you will email me TSLundberg@gmail.com I will reply with what I have found in a few days.
