Hi ! Beulah;
I'm still here, and I would be glad to talk to anyone about the REEVES
b/f 1855 of Meigs County Ohio and After 1855 of Fremont County Iowa. Also
IRWIN and ROBINETT of same periods.
Note: I just ran across this and thought it might help a Page/Fremont Co. researcher. They are not my family.

I tried to send this message personally to Darlene at dbiorn(a)lds.net but AOL
said it couldn't be sent so I am sending this message to the list in hopes
that Darlene will see it.
I just received your packet today of the Fremont County Cemetery Records. I
thank you very much for sending this to me.
Now if I could only find out where Ruth Ann Brown wife of Delos W. Brown is
buried my mission would be complete. It is apparent she didn't die in
Fremont County, Iowa.
As you know genealogy research is never ending. Of course if we knew all the
secrets of the past we wouldn't have anything more to research and the fun
would be all gone.
Thanks again for your kindness.
I learned over the weekend that my Delos White Brown died and was buried in
your county in 1863. The Fremont Cemetery records do not show a burial in
Fremont County, IA for his wife Ruth Ann (Morgan) Brown.
I would appreciate it if someone has access to the 1870 and 1880 census
records for the county to look for a Ruth Brown as a head of household or a
member of one of her son's households. The sons are James Thomas Brown and
Jacob Jones Brown.
I have a private publication on the Morgan Family that says Ruth was a widow
in Fremont County, IA in 1874 and her two sons lived in the county also.
Thank you for your help. I have had wonder responses from your list. I want
to thank everyone who has generously contributed to my research.

The link to the Rootsweb Fremont County Resource Pages on the
Fremont County web site is broken. This is the correct address if
you would like to bookmark or add to your favorites this URL. It
is case sensitive so best to copy and paste. Everyone should
check the resources available here.
At this time e-mail to Nancy Preston, the Fremont County
Coordinator is bouncing. We hope it is a temporary problem. We
all owe a thank you to Nancy for the new look on the Fremont
County pages. We hope you have all visited there recently to see
the newly posted items.
I want to thank everyone on the list who has been so kind to send me
information on my Delos White Brown from the Fremont County Cemetery Records.
Now that I know he died 25 Sep 1863 in Sidney, IA I would like to write to
see if there are any probate records available. Does anyone know if a death
certificate would be available for the year 1863? I have the address for
Can anyone tell me where to write to request this information and the cost
for the request?
Thank you again for being so gracious and helpful.
I'm new to this list and I'm trying to find land records, cemetery and
probate information on Delos White and Ruth Ann (Morgan) Brown.
The 1860 census shows them in Sidney Township, Fremont, IA. Family records
show that Delos died there in 1876 and Ruth in 1808. I would like to confirm
this information with documentation.
If anyone is related to me or has suggestions on how to get this information
I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your consideration.
