My maternal grandparents were married in November of 1890 in West Side,
Iowa, at the Catholic Church there. Grandfather was John Thomas Allen,
son of James Wesley Allen and Mary Elizabeth Mardis who farmed in
Crawford County, Iowa.
Looking for grandmother Mary Ellen Allen (nee O'Holleran / O'Halloran)
birth record has been fruitless for 34 years. I have no clue where she
was born, but my mother referred to her birth as occurring in the
Limberlost country of Michigan. My cousin said she was born in
Kalamazoo, MI. Michigan search has proven moot with help from
genealogists in Kalamazoo who found records of a Halloran family near
Detroit, but nothing comparable to O'Holleran / O'Halloran near
Kalamazoo, Mi. So I'm going to start, hopefully, with my grandparent's

I was just wondering if there was any information on the people buried in Hayes Cemetery, such as how they died and a little bit about their life. I'm a sophmore at Manning Community School, and we are doing cemetery projects for biology and world cultures. I was also wondering about the history of Hayes Cemetery. Any information that you would have for me would be of great help! Thanks!
Sincerely, Erin Dammann

I was hoping someone might do me a favor, I am looking for the following
entries in the Crawford County death records, I missed these when I had
brought in the microfilms, or the death is further than what is
available on microfilm.
01. Minnie Boger-Reinwaldt, according to the cemetery records, she
passed away in 1940.
02. Augusta Boger-Ploog, according to the cemetery records, she
passed away in 1955.
03. Johann T. Ploog, according to the cemetery records, he passed
away in 1945.
I'm attempting to locate the dates in an effort to try to obtain a copy
or transcript of their obituaries as well.
Any help would greatly be appreciated,
