Thanks to Don Thompson we now have a transcription of the 1885 Iowa Census
for Castle Grove township.
Joanne Wilken has transcribed the 1895 Iowa Census for Monticello City. In
1854 Monticello had 37 residents; by 1895 it had grown to 2079! Thank you,
Since November 1, 2001 we have been using the new query system developed
for IAGenWeb by the Friends of IaGenWeb for all our new queries. We have
now completed the process of incorporating the older queries into the new
system. About 30% of the queries that were posted to this site during the
during the past 5+ years had dead addresses and have not been moved to the
new pages. In other cases the posters chose not have their queries reposted.
Stop by and check it out!
Jones County IAGenWeb Coordinator
Hi Jones County,
Does anyone know if there are newspapers that survived from this period? I am looking primarily for Oxford Junction, obituaries.
I am searching for the dates of death for two women.
1. Ruth (Fairchild) Aduddell. She died after her husband Benjamin's Will dated 3 July 1868.
2. Ruth and Benj's daughter, Francis Elizabeth (Aduddell) Smith. According to Francis' husband, Martin Luther (Lou) Smith's Pension Application, Francis died in Aug. 1874 in Jones County, IA.

PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
