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.

|cindy king||RE: Eva May Young- White|
It's good to hear from you. Sorry to say, not much more has been found on this end. Other than Oct 2015 DNA test confirmed my Grandfather was not a only child. It confirmed Eva Young, daughter of John and Mary Young of Villisca was my Gr. Grandfather's Edward Joseph White wife. The Young's have in he family bible, Eva died in Jan 1890. They had a daughter named Emma May in 1887, found as May Linthicum. No information on burial for her mother Eva. My Great Grandfather was buried in St. Joseph. Mo in Aug 1891. His parents lived in Villisca. I have no clues to his parents. The names on his marriage cert. to Eva in 1884 in Villisca as his parents are the same names as parents he used when he married my Gr. Grandmother Amelia Boudinier in 1891 in St. Joseph, Mo. I have not found them anywhere as his parents. Ambrose and Phoebe White buried in Villisca Cemetery are questionable. Ambrose was married once before. Again cant find him married to a Emma Thompson. The newspaper in Villisca said, his parents names were Mr and Mrs John White. Don't know what I'm missing? Ancestry did tell me... only 3 people have Edward Joseph White 1861-1891 in their tree. I am one of them, my sister and Eva's niece. Do you know Dave McFarland in Villisca? He works on the Villisca History? Perhaps out of the library. He told me, by phone.. everything is kept at the library in Red Bud, Iowa. Any help or clues would be appreciated. Thanks for asking.

Thank You for time and effort for picture.
I can't thank you enough for going out in winter to photo the headstone of this Civil War veteran and his wife. Much appreciated!

OOPS! I didn't finish my request to you. I would like to use the photo on the Vermont Civil War site ( www.vermontcivilwar.org).

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our "Old Soldiers, that had any ties to Vermont. I am asking you if I may use the photo (s) you have contributed to the Memorial page of Levi Mick? You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration,
|Brad Ross||Elizabeth A. Welsh McNeal|
I've found a discrepancy with Elizabeth's date of birth - my family records show Sept.1, 1841. However, the headstone clearly shows the date of 1842. Do you have documents to share that determine the correct DOB and DOD?
(P.S. Elizabeth's husband, Charlie McNeal was the brother of my Great-great grandfather, James McNeal.)
|cindy king||Eva May Young- White|
My Great Grandfather Edward Joseph White married a Eva Young in Wapello Iowa in 1884. She passed somewhere in Iowa, Perhaps Creston. I am trying to find her burial and when she died. She may of died in childbirth before 1891. Also looking for Edwards Parents. Emma Thompson and Jackson White's burial spots. They also were from Iowa, Red Oak and Villisca. They may of had a son named William also. Thank You.
|cindy king||RE: Edward Joesph White|
Yes, Edward White was married once before to Eva May Young in 1884 Wapello Iowa. They had a daughter Emma May In 1886. As far as any other children, I don't know. I was told that Eva died in 1890. Cant find her burial place. He married my Gr. Grandmother in 1891. The same year he was murdered.
