Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Minnesota native and grew up in the southern part of the state near Mankato & Mapleton and that is where most of my relatives are interred. My husband grew up in Iowa so our family tree treks take up all over the midwest. We now reside in Rochester.
Most of my side is from Germany and England. His side mostly Scotland with some Germany. We are carrying on a tradition that his mother dearly loves, but unable to do at this stage in life.

Your page says that your relatives are "interned". I don't want to be a pain, but "interned" means to be confined as in a prison. I think you meant to say "interred".

I don't know your relatives, maybe they were interned! Just kidding. ;-)

Happy Hunting!

Sherry -
I'm so sorry it took me this long to transfer your family to you. I think I got them all. If not please let me know and I'll get them to you.

Hi hawkeye2: Thanks for your information and sorry about the duplication. I'm forwarding the bio I had on her in case you would want to add to yours. Yours in faith, Richard.

Ina Lucile Clowes was born April 18, 1916, near Spragueville, Iowa, the daughter of Francis Mason and Addie Minerva (McPeak) Hoovler. She graduated from Maquoketa High School in 1933. She continued her education at the Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls. She taught in Andrew, Renwick and Vernon Schools.

On December 27, 1937, Ina was united in marriage to James "Mac" Clowes in Renwick, Iowa. After their marriage they lived and farmed near Renwick and Ina later worked in the Boone Valley School system.

Ina had an avid interest in genealogy, which led her to join the Daughters of the American Revolution and she later served as the State Regent in 1991 and 1992. She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Colonies and Mayflower Society and the United Methodist Church. Ina also enjoyed painting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, gardening, reading and writing poetry.

Ina died Saturday, November 3, 2012, at the Rotary Ann Nursing Home in Eagle Grove, Iowa. She was 96.

Harleft Whitney
I was unable to locate a grave for Harleft Whitney, and the memorial # you gave me is for someone different.
