I am a member of the Marion County Historical Society, Marion County Pioneer Cemetery Commission, State Association for the Preservation of Iowa Cemeteries, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the John Myers Post #3519 VFW.
Photographing and preserving the past is my passion! Any time I can help with requests in my area, please feel free to let me know.
Over the years I have been helped many times by the Marion County Historical Society and ordered many copies of records from them. I am VERY GRATEFUL! The items ordered there + my additional research have provided objective source documents for trees on Ancestry.com and for FIND A GRAVE memorials.
Many of my RANDOL and DRAKE ancestors/relatives lived and died in and around Knoxville, Marion Co., Iowa.
Would/could you transfer Memorials to me: 91160126 = Ellen Drake Goodenough 91160126 = Eri H. Goodenough
Ellen Drake Goodenough was my great grandmother's half sister.
I am hoping that I can locate records for Graceland Cemetery that will confirm the purchase of lots and burials of unmarked graves there. Especially of the DRAKE's.
From your credentials, I can see that you are very busy. I will try not to bug you.
Are Helen Severns and Cindy Hugen still involved with Marion County Historical Society? If not, would/could you direct me to someone there in Knoxville with whom I can track down the Graceland records?
Respectfully, Sally Randol-Hardy 1016 MacDonald Lake Road Springville, AL 35146
Cadwalader Greetings Marla, I am helping a friend who is trying to locate direct descendants of the Cadwalader's buried at Easley Cemetery in Vermont, IL. Would you be, or know of living descendants? Thank you, Micki Behl
Do you know where you got the name Nier that you listed on the memorial? That is a variation on the spelling of my family name. I know at least one ancestor moved to Iowa but I can't find a record of a Ludinda.
