Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started tracing my family roots back in the late 1970's by helping my mother by visiting libraries and traveling to Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Which is where many of my ancestors came from before settling in Iowa. I grew up in Iowa but my work took me to Kansas. Now I have returned to Iowa, the place I've always called home. Was lucky to have both parents interested in genealogy.

If I post a photo you would like removed - let me know and I will remove it. I realize there is a 5 photo limit. I would also encourage the sponsoring a memorial page as this is a wonderful site worthy of support.

I am also more than happy to transfer memorials if they are not in my tree.

EDWARD JOSEPH WHITE.
THE AMBROSE AND EMMA THORUPSON WAS FOUND IN RED OAK. I THINK THE THORUPSON IS MISPRINTED AND IS THOMPSON. THERE IS A JACKSON WHITE AT WAPOLLO IOWA WITH A EDWARD J WHITE ,SON, EMMA THOMPSOM, WIFE AND EDWARD MARRIED A EVA MAY YOUNG ARIL 1 1886. THEY HAD A LITTLE GIRL. IF THIS IS HIM...HE REMARRIED MY GR GRANDMOTHER AMELIA BOUDINEAR APRIL 20 1891 AND MY GRANDFATHER WAS BORN DEC 10 1891. I DONT KNOW IF JACKSON AND AMBROSE IS ONE AND THE SAME MAN. MAYBE GOING BY MIDDLE NAME?

Joseph White formely from Villisca
I still have not found anymore about my Gr. Grandfather. Have you had the chance to find any obit's mentioning his parents names? After Aug 20, 1891. Is there a census that would mention him. perhaps 1880, he would of been 13 years old. I am confused about his fathers name. Ambrose signed his (Joseph's) wedding license in St. Joseph, Mo. under father. Also mentioned was a Emma Thompson name with Ambrose. Then the Newspaper said his parent's names were Mr. and Mrs. John White of Villisca Iowa, 1891????? All that is new on this end, is I now know his body was buried at Calvary Cemetery in Aug 1891 and later moved, when Calvary Cemetery in St. Joseph, Mo. was all dug up in the 40's-50's and interned to Mount Olivet at St. Joe. There is no listing of him buried at Mt. Olivet though. I hate to think I am at a dead end on finding my ancestors.

RE: ed white
The St. Joseph Herald, Friday, Aug 21,1891. This is where they mention John as the father. 'UNDER A WANTON MURDER'. Under 'SHOT BY FOOT PADS' in the Villisca Iowa paper 'RED OAK EXPRESS'. Aug 27,1891 is the article of his death.

RE: Whites
Do you know the PARENTS names of THE Ed White from Creston IA? This story kind of blends in with the newspaper articles from St. Joe. He had two woman pregnant, married the one ( MY GR GRANDMOTHER AMELIA ) hence the reason he was murdered.

RE: Whites
My Grandfather was the only child. His name is Joseph Marrel White. He was the son of Edward and Emelia White. Edward My Gr grandfather died before my grandfather' birth Edward died Aug 21, 1891. My Grandfather was born Dec 10, 1891. I have found Edward under Edward Joseph. Marriage license at St. Joseph is Joseph Edward, Death record is Joseph E. White. News paper said he went by the name Eddie. Ambrose White signed his marriage license as father. Was John a nickname? That's the name they had in the St. Joe's paper as his father when Edward/Joseph died.

RE: Ambrose White
Ambrose did have a son named George killed in Villisca by the train. My Gr Grandfather Edward Joseph was killed by robbers while he worked on the train in St. Joseph Mo. in 1891. He was from Villisca. So this is two different young men. On my gr. Grandparent's wedding certificate a Ambrose signed it under Father. Was he a Uncle? I'm finding a connection, but have yet found who Edward's parents are. The only thing I have is a news paper article that states Edwards parents, Mr.& Mrs. John White came from Villisca to St. Joe to claim the body. Recently I found out he was buried at St. Joe at Calvary Cemetery.

RE: Margaret Newell 1854-1910.
Hello, thank you for the information on Margaret Boyce Newell 1854-1910. According to the Iowa Cemetery Records there is a Margaret Newell 1854-1910 buried in Red Oak Junction. However, I find no record of my Margaret Boyce Newell 1854-1910 wife of Robert Officer Newell 1849-1925 having ever married anyone other than Robert. I do have record of Robert Officer Newell 1849-1925 being buried at Oskaloosa, Mahaska County, Iowa in the Forest Cemetery. So at this point I'm inclined to think there are two separate Margaret Newell's and over time their records have become entwined. My guess is Margaret is buried next to her husband Robert Newell. Thank you for all your assistance.
