Error on Perry Leach Obit
Am a researcher and also a Find-a-Grave contributer (waiting to gather all and do a lump sum). Have been researhing this family as his parents grewup and married as pioneers of where I am originally. Hate to burst your bubble but the born and death dates you have listed no way match what's on the headstone. The dates on the headstone are correct to the data I have (like I said I grew up in that area of Wis.)
What is interesting of Perry is that when he moved from Barron County to Mason City, Iowa before his dad died in 1908 (have not deterined actual year yet) he settled near his aunt Susan (Perry's dad's sister)and uncle Charles Booth.
These latter two came from the town of Pulaski (next to Town of Clyde where Leaches entered WI in 1846) where they lived for several years before moving to the Cerro Gordo County area. My GGparents lived on their land after they moved. Small world.

Anything you want to enlighted me on this family I would appreciate - especially where a Willsiam S. Booth is buried - somewhere in Palo Alto or Cerro Gordo counties (he was the Booth father). No one can find him there (not next to his sons).

Anyhow - good luck.

Johanna Moran burial
You have cited that a Johanna Moran is buried at St. Patrick's Cemetery, Churdan, Greene County, IA. The date of death listed is 27 November 1889. 1880-1992 Iowa County death records indicate Certificate No 765, page 60; GS Film No. 001034209, digital folder 004707872, image no. 00096. I'm not sure what all these numbers reference. What I am trying to verify is that the Johanna Moran buried at St. Patrick's is my 2nd great grandmother who was born in Ireland about 1810 and was last known to live in Greene County in the late 1880's. Is there a headstone present at the cemetery that reflects the name and date of birth/death? I have worked with the Greene County Recorder and Historical Society and they have no record of Johanna Moran's date of death or burial at St. Patrick's. What documentation is available to verify her burial at Churdan? I am greatly interested in any information you can provide. Dennis

Fairview Cemetery in Washington Township, IA is the right cemetery.

RE: Nichols and Purvis
Henry L. Nichols 5 Sep 1860 to 25 Mar 1933. Wiki says he died in Colo. Springs. But I have an old newspaper article that says he died in Wash. DC. One of his sons maybe lived in DC. Henry's wife died three months after he did in San Fran. Ca. her name was Rachel D. (Lutz) Nichols. Thank you.

I am most grateful you did. I've already started to create biographies for them.
