A wonderful addition to your website and thank you for that!
I even found my Minnie (STARKS) CARSONS, stepdaughter of my 2nd great
grandmother Almira "Mira" (SCOTT) STARKS. Almira and Minnie passed away at the
same time so Mira may be buried at Oakwood Cem in Monticello as well, nice
clue and thanks again.

I am trying to find a Charles Sanders in the 1895 state census. He is listed
in the index on Ancestry.com as being in Jones Co. I am trying to find out if
he was in the state penitentiary. He was born in Greene Co.
Thank you for your time and attention.
I am new to this list and Jones County research, most of my Iowa research has
been centered in Plymouth County, IA.
Seeking info on Harry H. STARKS family. Harry appears to be the son of
Eunice/Unice and Norman STARKS who came to originally migrated to Sauk Co., WI
from Clinton County, NY and finally settling in Monticello, Jones Co., IA.
Harry was born about 1824 in NY.
I am mostly interested in his 4th and last marriage to my great grandmother,
Almira V. SCOTT. Almira or "Myra/Mira" SCOTT was born June 1840 in NY.
Seeking death date of Myra SCOTT STARKS and obituary or just any info I can
find. I descend from Almira's first marriage to Isaac Newton JEFFERS and
their third son, Newton Isaac JEFFERS who was born 1867, Cedar Rapids, Linn Co.,
IA and passed away 1898 in Plymouth Co., IA.
There is a worldconnect tree up where there is a mention of an obit for Myra
and her stepdaughter Minnie STARKS where I think the submitter received Myra's
mother's name Betsy. I have been trying for months to prove Betsy as Myra's
mother. Would love to get my hands on this obit but have tried numerous ways
to contact the submitter as the email for her is not valid and cannot find a
current email for her.
Seems Almira "Myra" STARKS and Minnie STARKS passed away at the same time.
According to the tree on RootsWeb Minnie's Death: 23 APRIL 1923 in Monticello, Jones, IA so I would assume Almira's is the same.
Can anyone help w/this obit or does anyone have info on this family?
Thank you very much
Am willing to do Chicago IL Tribune obit lookups in trade for obit lookups that I need.

Who is this person?
I received this note and was absolutely shocked!
I have never received such an explosive comment in my years of geneology
"Litmar", you need to apologize to all on this line!
So sorry, you are so unhappy!
I hope you got my e-mail and recognize that you wrote to the wrong person.
Your ignoring my request for an apology is another example of your red-neck
If you can't be positive and efficient, then keep your mouth shut.
My great, great-grandfather, Dempsey Capps, died in Wyoming, Jones Co. in March, 1884. I would be very appreciative if someone in the Jones County area could try and locate a death notice or obituary. Since he was the proprietor of the Commercial Hotel in Wyoming and also ran the telephone exchange at the time of his death, I would think that something would have been in the local paper about his death.
Do you Yahoo!?

Hi Gail: I am very disappointed in the Iowa list and particularly with the Historical Society in Jones County. My daughter and I flew from Florida and Alabama to research family in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. While in Northern Missouri, I called the genealogical society president and requested information on m g-g-grandfather and g-g-grandmother. I told the person that I was about 160 miles South of the area where we wanted to do research, and was told it would do no good to come, because they could not find anything on them. Even though the last known address in the 1880 census was Jones County. She acted like it was an imposition that I called. I guess I will have to go another route. I have strong evidence that they died there. My daughter and I were really disappointed since we went to far just to do research.
On a positive note, we did find good information in Shelbina, Missouri from a Kathleen Wilham, Researcher, she is a delightful person and most helpful. She took us to the grave site of my 4th grandparents. I also found my g-grandmother's grave in St. Joseph, Missouri, because of the helpfulness of a gentleman 3 years ago. It was a very productive trip, just sorry I couldn't get any cooperation out of the Jones County people.
