Hello veterans and newbies of the rootsweb. This posting has been preapproved my the list owner.
There are some really great folks who are willing to help just for the asking. I, myself do Volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville Georgia. There are Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost
and I am willing to do what I can. As there are 1542 prisoners on record from the state of Iowa and almost 300 who died here, I thought I would send my offer. . I feel the need to say I am not in anyway
trying to focus on the horrors of Andersonville compared to any POW camp in the north ..( i.e.Elmira ) or any others and do not wish to stir up arguments on this site. My focus is dedicated to ALL of those held prisoner
during this war , on both sides as well as all Americans who gave their freedoms for those that we enjoy today.. I just happen to be near Andersonville so this is where I do my work
Here are my sources of research.
There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by name...one by
Company and Regiment. I also have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list
which has the names and grave numbers of 12960 graves with only 460 marked
as " UNKNOWN " This along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of
the 45,000 who were imprisoned there which helps me find prisoner records because of
misspellings of the names or alternate names. I visit the prison site every
couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the
physical files. I would like to let you know of another service I offer
which is to take photos of graves for a small fee. Please do not consider
this spam as my research offer is FREE for the asking and will be posted on
this county site only once.
If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville,
please just ask.
Please visit my website dedicated to those Americans who were imprisoned and died in captivity while in the service to our country

I am looking for information on the following people who have Jones Co., IA
connections (specifically Cass Twp.):
Alfred Baldwin (b 1/14/1822 England; d 3/7/1900) m. Elizabeth Murray (b 1823
Ireland; d 6/5/1916) and had:
George Robert BALDWIN (b 5/5/1858 Toronto, Ontario, Canada; d 6/9/1930; bur
Oak Shade Cemetery, Marion, Linn Co., IA) m1. between 1879-1882 Alice
Elizabeth BECK (b 1861 PA; d 1887 Marion, Linn Co., IA; bur Castlegrove
Cemetery, Jones Co., IA); m2. 1889 Elizabeth E. REED (b 8/8/1863 Le Salle,
Deer Park, IL; 12/25/1933 Cedar Rapids, Linn Co., IA; bur Oak Shade
Cemetery, Marion, Linn Co., IA). The 1920 Cedar Rapids Directory shows him
as a restaurant proprietor and 1930 Directory shows him as an elevator
The following information is from the 1885 Iowa State Census for Cass Twp.,
Baldwin Alfred 85 Farmer b England
Baldwin Elisabeth 58 Keeping house b Ireland
Baldwin Stephen 16 b Jones Co.
Baldwin Essa 14 b Jones Co.
**This indicates that they were in Jones Co. by at least 1869.
Alice Elizabeth BECK is the daughter of David BECK (b 1838 PA; d 4/21/1872)
and Sarah SCHEFFER (b 1842 PA; d 1915). I know they had the following
children besides Alice:
Milton E. Beck b 1863
Ida Beck b 1867
Lizzie Beck b between 1/1/1869 & 8/9/1869
After David's death, Sarah remarried John Wint abt 1873 and they had two
children together: Lotta Wint in 1874 and Carrie Wint in 1879.
I have a picture of them and Mrs Alice Elizabeth Beck appears to be slightly
darker in skin tone than George, possibly of Indian descendancy??? Am
willing to share this photo with anyone interested.
I am particularly interested in the BECK family, although anything on any of
the people mentioned would be much appreciated.

Good afternoon............Is there a way you could check past census for an
Archibald Russell (b. abt. 1835?) possible in the 1850-90 census.
Also for the following names Beyeler and Aegerter between 1880-1910.
Thank you very much........I appreciate your efforts.

I am looking for Finley Smith, Ida Smith or Francis Elizabeth Smith. If I
can just get the township and page I would be grateful.
Thanks so much,
