At Labor Day I talked to Stan Hill and found out that the Iowa
Highway commission that is building a bypass of U.S 218 around
Mt. Pleasant was looking for an old cemetery to help preserve
it. Apparently the owner of the land had plowed it under. I
think the name of it was the Mennser Cemetery.
I also took a ride to the Willeford Cemetery. It is in very bad
condition--very much overgrown. There were only about 10 markers
On the more positive side, I talked to the archivist of the
Methodist Archives at Iowa Wesleyan College, Esther Wonderlitch.
She will do research for a fee. There are files for individual
chruches in Iowa and the annual conferences books. These have
many references to participants in the various annual
conferences, list of church members for various special purposes
and obituaries of deceased Methodist ministers.
The email address is archives(a)iaumc.org. The address for the
Methodist Archives is

I have an Emma Jane JONES who married (03-25-1892 Edgar Co. IL.) James
Wilson ROTH b. 05-04-1862 Henry Co. IA.
I don't know anything else about her or where they met...just thought
there might be a connection since you are looking for JONES in Henry Co.
James was the son of Johnathan Griest ROTH & Harriet PRITCHETT. John
moved with his parents and 10 siblings to Edgar Co. IL. abt. 1854. John
& Harriet's three children were born in Henry Co. IA.
I'm looking for information on my g grandmother Deborah Jones and her
parents, James Jones and Elizabeth Robinson Jones. Deborah's first marriage
was to Levi Frazier on December 5, 1853 in Salem, Henry, Iowa. Deborah was
born October 10, 1835 in Ohio, moved to Iowa, back to Ohio, and then back to
Iowa.I can't seem to find anything on James. Thanks, Julia
