My face is red! I forgot to write down the other ages. I can get them for
you next Wednesday, if you need them.
We have some vital records on microfilm - deaths, births, divorces, and
If I could look anything else up next Wednesday, let me know. We also have
the 1856 State all-name census which also tells how long they were in the
STATE(not necessarily the county).

Hi, my Mom and I have been doing some research on her grandfather, Charles C.
Denison and cant seem to have much luck in finding any records of his death,
etc. Could you tell me the name of this museum that you visited and the
city/town in was in? Thanks...

I was hoping someone would be able to answer a few questions. I found the death record on microfilm of the Jones County Death Index of a younger sister of my gr-gr-grandmother. This is what the Index stated:
24 [29?] May 1883 Manona DAWSON, Female, White, [age] 10y8m, Daughter of J. [sic] M. V. DAWSON, [date of death] 28 [23?] May 1883, [time of death] 5 p.m., [marital status] Single, [nationality] American, [birthplace of parents] Ohio Jones Co, Ia, [birthplace of descedent?] H______, Ia [I can't read name of town], [cause of death] Fell from flalt [sic] car inside of track and run over by the cars, Body given to her Father and friends, Z. G. Isabell Coroner Center Junction, Ia.
Was there a newspaper that covered Center Junction in 1883? Is it on microfilm at a library or anyplace in Jones County? Where and to whom would I write to see if there was a writeup about the accident?
Also, is there any record of her buried in Jones County? Thank you!
I am hoping that someone has access to the 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860 or 1870
census for Jones county. Also if anyone has access to the marriage records
for Jones county or can give me information on how to receive this
information, it would be very much appreciated.
I am looking for the death date of Joshua Lathrop. It is possible that he
had up to three additional wives, but was supposed to have died in
Monticello, Iowa. I am also looking for the death date of his daughter
Lucinda Alice Cindy Lathrop Gadmer. I have 1936 in Jones county, Iowa on my
information. Also I am trying to find the John Fales family that Dorothy
was a daughter of. They were supposedly in Iowa at the same time. Please
advise if anyone has any information that can confirm or disprove or provide
any additional information.
Thank you in advance,

Will be getting more information to you about the Wolfe line but I just
caught your post about the Grant Wood family and the tag that has your new
site address and surnames you are researching.
I have a Dawn Buckallew (probably incorrect spelling?) born 3 Mar 1965 and
married (divorced) to Rodney "Bones" Dean Boren. They would have lived in
the Marion, IA area. Any link?
Also see you doing SHAW. You can see what I have on SHAW as well on my site.
I am still trying to fill in the gaps on a few of them that you "may" have
in your database?
Is there anyone researching the Grant Wood family? If so I have an article
that I would like to pass along.
Hi Nancy - I was referring to the one at Edinburgh. It is in a very remote
area of Jones County and is only open regularly on Sunday afternoons. But
Edwin Freeze was most willing to drive over and let us in and help us.

On a visit to Iowa I stopped by the museum on Saturday May 29. I found the
museum to be open only on Sunday afternoons, but following Diana Hanson's
advice, I knocked on the door of Edwin Freeze (second house east on the
north side) who couldn't have been more cooperative. He came over and
opened the museum for us, and immediately started pulling out books that
might have info on my Cole and Bumgarner families. I found several very
useful items. However, he was unable to find the box of old postcards Diana
had told me about.
It's a great little museum. They have copies of most, if not all Jones
County Histories as well as copies of old atlases, with maps showing
property ownership in 1877 and 1893.
