I do not understand your second message to the Jones Co. list. What is
John's last name?
If you have more information to help me find your ancestors, I will be happy
to look in the courthouse on Wednesday.
Do you believe that they died in Jones Co.?

There are two rolls of film with GAR Jones County, Iowa, records on them.
One of the rolls has a very large Anamosa Post on it.
The LDS Idenification numbers on the cartons are:

If you do not find the Anamosa Post on one of the above microfilm rolls,
please contact me directly and I will determine exactly which roll has the
Anamosa Post on it.

My husbands gggrandfther, Noah ALDRICH, lived in Jones County Iowa. I know he was there in June 1847 when he married Esther Moore Hiner and until his death November 1859. I do not know where he is buried. I would really like to know when he came to Iowa and from where. Census and newspaper articles say he was born in Mass.
The children of Noah and Esther ALDRICH were:
Sumner born 1848
Olive born 1850
Martha Jane born 1852
Irvin born 1855 (I have his line)
Everett born 1857
Esther and the children moved to Dallas County Iowa after Noah's death.
I would really appreciate any help or clues in finding parents or siblings for this Noah ALDRICH./

Thank you very much, Kevin!

Not long ago Joanne Wilken posted some GAR information to this list. I
wanted to see if I could find a film with the information -- so that I could
have a copy for my file. The following information might be useful to
Using the Keyword Iowa Civil War, I searched the LDS familysearch.org site
to see if film would be listed -- received several pages of film one of
which was the GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) records Iowa Posts Indexes to
veterans; post membership records. Noted that one film listed men; Boyd,
Adam - Corwin, William E. film #1487371. My fellow has the surname Chopper.
I ordered this film and noted that the GAR post was listed as "#4 Anamosa".
To date I have not been able to find a filming by the LDS for this Anamosa
Post GAR records.
If you do a search and find film #1613531 for Jones Co., Iowa GAR records --
please know that you will not find an Anamosa Post on this film.
Hope this has helped someone today.

Thanks to Steve Hanken, the record of deaths from the St. John's Evangelical
Lutheran Church of Monticello, 1864-1988, have been posted to a new section
of the Jones County IAGenWeb site called "Churches." Included there are some
pictures from old real photo post cards and links to other church-related
information on the site.
Steve promises more from St. John's 125th anniversary book, and if anyone
else has church-related information, please send it in.
I've been posting and reading things from this mail list for several months,
but just can't get anywhere.
Looking for any information regarding George Lewis BERTRUCHI, who filed his
application for social security in Oxford Junction in 1942. The application
says he was unemployed at the time.
Through a helping pair of hands, someone checked and indicated he was NOT
listed in the 1925 census index of Jones County.
I have written 2 letters to Tri-County Historical Society, the first one May
18th, the second on June 23rd. To date, I haven't even received a response
from them. I enclosed SASE in both requests, as well as my email address
(trying to give them options and make it as simple as possible). This is the
ONLY time a Historical Society has ignored a request as I think back through
the years of research. Can someone offer some help?
Would love someone to check city phone books to determine when and for how
long he was listed. To perhaps check the business listings to determine what
he did for a business. Is there a way to check this small town newspaper for
something? Surely a community as small as this should make research easier,
someone must know the name? Can anyone offer help with addresses to churches
where I might find information regading membership??
Other thoughts welcomed.
Additionally, I've lost Jim Neiers addy.........anyone out there have it?
