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!

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.
