I subscribe to the BENNER family list. Are there any "Forney's Five Family
Records" by Guy Forney floating around that may be for sale. Thanks.
I am researching the names: SNELL/SCHNELL, SHELDON, BENNER, ISOM, ELLIOTT,
and HARRIS. All in the Fremont Co., IA.
I have a listing of Deaths in the Riverton Cemetery dated Sep. 15, 1982.
I only see the two names of REEVES, which is strange to me since so many of
my Reeves family lived there since 1853 up till the 1900's. The book was
co-written by members of the Schull family which were the town mortician's.
My Amos Reeves Death certificate was signed by R.C. Schull on Sep. 04, 1926
which says he was buried at Riverton, Iowa Cemetery, yet there is no record
of him on this listing. Since (his sister) Mariah (Reeves) Irwin lived with
Amos at Riverton, I figure she must be buried in the same cemetery, (no
listing). This is the person I am searching a death record of. If anyone has
excess to Obituary notices, could theye please check Amos Reeves Sep. 04,
1926 to see if there is any mention of Mariah Irwin, who was b. Dec. 07, 1842
Meigs County Ohio. She was daughter of Joseph & Cynthia (Robinett) Reeves of
Riverton. She married Burwell IRWIN, Nov. 19, 1859 at Fremont County, Iowa.
The only other place she might be buried would be in Tabor/Mills area where
her husband Burwell Irwin died in 1878.
Any persons having access to information of this family please contact

Does anyone have info on the Payne Farm in Fremont County, IA? I have a
gg gf and gm who worked for him. They were John and Fanny Hicklin
Chapman. Fanny died giving birth to twins in 1894 (supposedly in a snow
storm). Does anyone know where she could be buried? Any info would be
greatly appreciated. And Kay....if you are out there...please send me
those pic's again and this time I will save them on floppy. Later.
Thanks so much to everyone who responded to my question.......... with some
great historical info, too! I had always thought this was the Thurman Cem,
but found an on old notation that referred to the Ewell Cem. Now I know why,
as it was originally part of the Ewell Farm. Thanks much for the history
lesson! Many of my ancestors are buried there and I had visited the cemetery
in the past. I have now made connections to many others buried there, and
the info I obtained on my last visit is, of course, incomplete. MANY thanks
for the look-up offers, too!
