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.

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.

John/Ambrose White
I have now realize that Ambrose is not my Gr.Grandfather.I seen that he also lost a son named George in a train accident, but in IOWA. My Gr. Grandfather's NAME WAS Edward JOSEPH WHITE.He was working on ST.J.&CC.B.R.R and living with his new wife in St.Joseph, Mo. His parents were from Villisca Iowa. The only name I have to go on is John White. On the burial records found recently, his body was buried at St. Joseph's Calvary Cemetery. Later moved to Mt. Olivet. I wonder if it's possible that Ambrose is related. On Edward Joseph- Joseph Edward wedding papers, it shows a John and Ambrose signitures on the papers. Also after his body was reburied there is no record in Mt. Olivet. CALVARY Cemetery was closed in the 40-50's and bodies moved.

RE: Ed White 1891
Yes, this is the man killed by the train robbers in Harlam Mo. My great grandfather. His wife's maiden name was Amelia Boudinier. They only mentioned in a newspaper story from a St. Joseph Mo. paper, his father's name is John. Plus on their marriage certificate also at St Joe, father is a Ambrose White along with a Emma Thompson. Very confusing I know. I would love to know if there is family in St. Joseph.

Looking for relatives in Villisca
My great Grandfather's family came from Iowa. When he (EDWARD JOSEPH WHITE) died in 1891, the newspaper article (RED OAK) made us believe his body was taken from St. Joseph Mo. back to Villisca Iowa by his parents. Mr. and Mrs. John White. We just recently found out that they decided to bury his body at St. Joseph Mo. He was buried at Calvary Cemetery. Problem now is....Calvary Cemetery was moved and no longer exist. Most bodies were taken to a cemetery named Mt. Olivet. WE CANNOT LOCATE HIM. He died Aug 19,1891. I cannot locate his parents in Iowa.The only lead we have is John White as the Father.
