A while back someone asked about Pleasant Anderson. Here is an incomplete
(the newspaper is torn) article from the Blakesburg (Wapello, IA) Excelsior,
Thursday, Jan 8, 1925, page 1. Microfilm from State Historical Society of
"Here is an item that was taken from last week's Bloomfield Democrat "forty
years ago column:" "Ples. Anderson was lynched by a mob near Blakesburg.
He had been accused of the murder of Chris McAlister, robbery being the
alleged motive. Anderson had been tried and acquitted of the charge. About
fifty men and boys took him to the Prairie school house, held a lynch court,
and finally hanged him. Anderson protested until the last that he was
innocent. Among his last words were the following: "If there ever was a
breath of ....I am not the man ...McAlister, and I do not....a "
....indicates missing words because of torn paper.
Has anyone joined the list who is connected to the Lyman Park BATES family?
he was born in 1821 in Gallia Co. OH, and was in Marshall County, IL by 1840.
His parents were David Ward BATES, and Julia Tuttle MEADE, who was his second
wife.Lyman's wife was Zilpha Ann HAMMETT. By 1870 Lyman and Zilpha were in
Davis County, IA. Their children, all born in Marshall CO., Il, were Louisa,
Louis, Leah, Leslie, Lyneus, and Leilla Olive (she married Marshall GLENN in
West Grove on 6 Sept. 1876).
Leah married a Milton R. MORRIS, in Davis Co. and their children were:
Zilpha, Taylor, and Ralph. I would be most happy to meet someone from the
Morris line, and compare notes.
A while back I received an email from a Mildred Prather on this list
concerning the Mowery family of Davis Co. IA. Her ancestor was William
N. Mowery b. 1851 in Kentucky and wife Mary Frances Ward. Could someone
please send me her new email address if it is known???

Is there some kind soul out there who would lookup a couple of my LAWRENCEs?
In particular Andrew J. LAWRENCE and Sara Agnes BENNETT. I sent for their
death certificates but Andrew died May 1880 and the state didn't start
keeping records until July 1880. Just my luck to miss by a couple of months.
They didn't send me Sarah's even thought she died in 1912. Both are buried in
the Stiles Cemetery. I am trying to find out the names of Sarah's parents. I
have sent this request so many times but, praying that someone will respond
to it this time..
Anything anyone can give me on these people would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks you for your time.

On the 1850 census a Wm. Stamper lived in Salt Creek Twnshp, Davis Co. listed on pg 231 and a Wm. B. Stamper that lived in Dist. 13, Wapello Co. listed on pg 436. The 1852 State census lists a Wm. B. in Cedar Twnshp in Mahaska Co. listed on page 5 (possibly the same Wm. B.?) Could someone give me any other family member's names, all ages and places of birth. One of these could be a gg grandfather and this could crumble a brick wall for me.
Thanks for any help and time spent.
