I'm looking for an actual death date for my gg grandfather Nimrod Poston. His
tombstone in Myrick Cemetery, Wapello Co. Iowa has been read as 1907, but other evidence
suggests that 1907 was impossible. Have thought that perhaps the stone was worn and
misread and that date was actually 1897? Last time actually shown living was as Nimrod
"Partan" of Lick Creek, Davis Co., Iowa in the 1895 Iowa State Census.
Nimrod Poston (who may have had the middle name Asbury or Asbery) was born between 1826
and 1828 in Hampshire Co., VA (now WV). He married Catherine Gilliland in 1948 in
Wapello Co., Iowa and their children were Lenora, Rufus Caldearon, Hurshel C., Emma and
Ida. Catherine died in 1868.
In 1869 he married Elizabeth Jane Mathews and their children were Clara Belle, Stanley
Mathis, Francis Joseph Wellington, Mary Josephine, Rosa Lee, Ray and Webster Wesley.
Would be very interested in and grateful for any additional information on Nimrod.
