Could someone do a lookup in the cemetery book for Mae White? Further
An obituary of Mae H. White (maiden Wiggins) states she "was laid to rest in
"City on the hill" Wyoming. Could this be "Church upon a hill", massillion?
Does anyone know of this cemetery? Does it have another name?
If her grave can be found, it might have her death date (which I am currently
missing). She was married to David A. White on Sept. 14, 1892 and she was
born June 4, 1872.
I appreciate any help you can give.
I'd be interested in obtaining information on my Hennessey family. Are
copies available for "out-of-towners"? What would be the charges? My
ggrandparents are listed in Marriage BookA, page 64, license #153, but
it only has their names. Is there more information on the actual
license? Also my grandmother Nellie Hennessey was born Oct 14, 1865.
Are there birth records that far back? Do you have Catholic church
records for that era?
In the 1870 census they are listed in the Castle Grove Township and
there is a Mary Sweeney living with them. She was 70 years old and died
in the next couple years. Would there be a death certificate for her?
And maybe burial information?
I'd be happy to hear from anyone who could supply copies of these
records. I live in Calif and have never been in Jones County...at least
1925 Jones Co. census-Anamosa
Mary E. Boyle age 73 b NY father: John Boyle b Ireland mother: Mary
Galligan b Ireland
Mary is listed as the Mother-in-law of Henry J. Tiedeman. Henry's wife is:
Maria G. Tiedeman 30 b IA father: Barney Boyle b NY and mother: Mary Cobey
b NY (Barney and Mary were married in IA)
Rosa E Boyle married Terrence Coleman 11/29/1876 in Anamosa.
Mary Ann (Boyle) Brickley (d 11/14/1884 age 40 Holy Cross Cem) was married to
Joseph A Brickley b MD.
Jane Boyle died 1902 Holy Cross Cem.
How certain are you that Lucy Boyle was your grandmother? Or do you have
Dominic Boyle with the wrong wife or children? Or were there more than one
Bernard Boyles? Why is Mary E. Boyle's father's name Boyle?
If you can give me some direction, I will search further. The next time I am
in Anamosa, I will try to find Lucy's obit. ( and Jane Boyle's obit). It may
be at least two or three weeks before I am there.
Jones Co. Lookup
The Jones County WPA cemetery book (almost all counties in Iowa have these)
is in alphabetical, surname order. It covers virtually all known cemeteries.
It is not absolutely accurate -- there are some omissions and reading errors.
The Jones Co. Gen. Society has reread most of the cemeteries and we will be
glad to look names up on a "as we have time" basis.
The library is open by appointment and 9 to 3 on Wednesdays. This is a
volunteer- staffed system. The weather or some other emergency may prevent
the library from being open on Wednesday. Call 319-377-8513 or 319-377-5232
to be certain before venturing out.

Thank you for posting a list of source information held at the Jones County
Iowa Genealogical Library in Anamosa.
I was interested that you listed the WPA Cemetery Book. Could you tell us
what Cemeteries are included in this book? Also, is there an overall index
researching - Chopper, Barlow, Beardsley, Calkins, Cox, Hess, Kelly, McBee,
Newlin, Plamadore, Scoggin, Scott, Washburn
I am looking for an Obit on my GGGrandmother , Lucy Boyle. I do not know
what her maiden name is but I know she was born in County Clare, Ireland. She
and her husband Dominic had 6 children that I know of..Elizabeth (?),
Dominic,b.9/6/1837, Bernard 1841, Mary Ann b 1843, Jane, 1847 and Rose, 1849.
Mary Ann married a Buckley I believe. If anyone is related to any of these
Boyles, please contact me. All the children were born in New York according
to the census.
Let me take the time to list some of the Jones County sources we have in our
Jones County Genealogical Library in Anamosa, IA.
Marriage books from 1840 through 1898
WPA Cemetery Book (canvassing done in 1930's)
1925 state census - alphabetized
Card index of individuals interested in Jones County surnames (Alphabetized
Scrapbooks of obituaries (some are alphabetized)
Morley Centennial Book (indexed and containing much genealogy)
Jones County genealogies (shelved by surnames in titles -most have indexes)
Census on microfilm - State and Federal - 1840 thru 1925
1879 and 1910 Jones County Histories (Every name index)
Let me explain the 1925 state census. It lists everyone alive in Jones
County in 1925. It includes each person's parents (mother's maiden name).
It tells if the parents are alive (gives age). It tells the parents birth
state/country and where the parents were married.
If you cannot find the individual you are looking for -- perhaps their
siblings are listed?????
Now Marriage License #2713 on page 488 for Book E says:
Thomas Moran b Temple Hill married Katie Mulvehill b Temple Hill on 1/9/1890
in Temple Hill.
His parents: James Moran and Mary Madden
Her parents: Patrick Mulvehill and Ann Curley
I found nothing on BOWLING OR HARDIN.
Ann Curley was still alive in 1925. She is not listed as Ann Mulvehill in
Jones County. She may be living in another county or she may have remarried.
She was 85 years old. She was born in Iowa and married in IA.
Patrick Mulvehill b 1830 Ireland d 1908Temple Hill Cem.
siblings of Katie Mulvehill:
Thomas b 1863
Willie b 1872
Margaret (Duffy) b 1876
Agnes (Faulks) m 1893
Mary Ann (Hughes) b 1867
Jane (Duffy) m 1894
Patrick b 1867 d 1929
All marriage books are for sale.
The 1925 census is for sale.
If your surname is written up in one of the histories (as was Mr. Brazelton),
you could get lots of information.
Jones Co. Lookup
There is a Thomas Moran d 2/6/1899 age 91 Temple Hill Cem. Possible but he
is very old. No Mary Moran is listed in the cemetery book.
This is my husband's surname. He tells me that this is probably not a
I have been doing research in Ontario Canada -- a LOT of Brocks up there. I
am told that this is where our side came from. They went to KY. Story goes
that 2 brothers went off to War (Civil). There was a younger one that was
to young to go. Neither of the two older ones came home after the war. The
family packed up and moved to Nebraska and years later to S. E. Montana.
Sorry that I couldn't be more helpful.

Hi Sandy & Linda:
I noticed your postings and thought I would reply since I have both
McBurneys and Pattersons in my family - both of whom lived in Jones Co.
Although I have no record of a George or May Patterson, Jane D. Patterson
married my gg grandfather Robert Coburn in 1852 at Columbiana Co., OH and
later moved to Wyoming Twp., Jones Co. Their son William Coburn married
Catherine McBurney in 1880 in Jones Co. BTW, Ed McBurney and I are related.
Let me know if I can be of further assiatance. Regards, Mike Scroggie

Thank you very much, Richard. Just what I needed. I have a film ordered, but as
usual I'm just too impatient to wait. Now I can order his military and pension files
without waiting for the film
