Vol. 2 of the Johnson Co Marriage books includes a listing for a Lizzie
(Kimes) Wildman & Herman J. Vogel that married 1-27-1897. We're REALLY
curious as to WHO this Lizzie was.... we don't know of any Lizzie
(Elizabeth) Kimes that married a WILDMAN.
Are we looking at the information incorrectly? (Maybe KIMES was NOT her
Can anyone help?
Some of you may recall a couple emails discussing ways to find other
relatives visiting the same cemeteries; different ways to leave contact
info, etc. We were hoping to meet whomever was placing flowers on the
KIMES, LEWIS, and BARNES tombstones in the Morfordsville Cemetery (aka
Pleasant Valley Cemetery) in Pleasant Valley Township.
We hit payola! A BARNES descendant visited the cemetery, found the info,
and called the distant cousin living a couple counties away. Turns out
he's been working on the BARNES/KIMES ancestry for several years and has
much to share. He's already forwarded some info which I'm posting below.
Maybe someone will see a familiar name and connect to our family, too.

Does anyone know where Facklers Grove Cemetery is? I've checked a couple of
web sites that list cemeteries and have been unable to find it. Also, if you
know where it is please send directions on how to get there from Solon. Many
of my Vornholt (spelled Varnholt per the Iowa Cemetery records) ancestors are
