The early records are gone, but the records from 1852 forward are truly out
at Edinburgh at the County Historical Library, I know because I fought for
them to keep them because they contain things that are to be found no where
else, like poll tax records. To get someone to research them may take some
doing though. They only have a secretary and nobody has e-mail access to my
knowlege that can help you. Steve Hanken

I am interested in knowing if there exist tax records for Jones County as
early as 1856, as well as years 1857-1860. Abijah Knight moved to Jones
County about 1856 from Chester Co., PA. His wife Phebe died about 1859 but
I never found here burial location. They lived near Morley.
Any Assistance appreciated.

Milo and Urana Starkweather are my g-g-grandparents. Their son, Charles H. Starkweather left Jones Co. (not known when) and moved to Omaha, NE and married Alice Mae Massey (Massee). Alice died after 3 children and Charles went on to California. I found Milo and Urana Starkweather on the 1870 census from Wyoming, Jones County. This is where their trail ends. Could you check to see if there is a death record for them? If you are unable to send the information, can you direct me to the person/place I can write for the information. I was on line at the archives for the IAJONES list recently and noticed the name of Jo Anne Wilken, Treasurer for the Jones County Genealogy Society. I would like her e-mail address if possible.
My daughter and I are planning a trip to north-eastern Missouri in the fall to investigate another line of our family and would also like to take a side trip to Jones County to locate the graves of Milo and Urana.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This probate was vertially complete within days of his death.
Anamosa Eureka June, 1892
Mr C Mahoney, an old and well known citizen living on the Stone City road,
died last Thursday. We had not heard of his sickness and do not know the cause
of his somewhat sudden death. He was a man of unusual intelligence and wholly
upright in character, and the possessor of some eccentricities which always
made him an interesting conversationalist.
Anamosa Journal -June 23, 1892
Our old and respected citizen Cornelius Mahony died of the grippe June 16,
1892. Deceased was born 12/22/1820 in Cork Co., Ireland, where he received the
common school education. He came to this country at the age of 19, and
subsequently crossed the ocean three times. He located at Syracuse, New York, and
worked for 2 years on the Erie canal. From Syracuse he went to Dubuque and
worked on the monastery for a year, and then removed to Anamosa, where he has
since remained. In 1860 he bought a home in town and in the same year Miss
Helena Dalley came from Dublin, Ireland, to meet him. They were married at
Cascade, there being no priest here. In 1875 his wife died and the same year he
bought the farm on which he has lived since. Four children were the fruit of this
union: Mary, Daniel, Thomas and Helena, all of whom survive: although the
whereabouts of Thomas are unknown. When Mr. Mahony came to Anamosa, the site
where the business portion of the city now stands, only hazel brush was then to
be seen. He was buried in the Catholic cemetery June 19, Rev Father Power
Would that we all could find an obituary like this!!

The Curley we have on our family tree is Ellen, who married my husband's
great-great-grandfather, John Tallman.
I do not have a date for that marriage.
I have seen some census listings for your Daniel Curley, but nothing seems to
fit the time frame for being connected to us (even though he also had a
daughter named Ellen).
Do you know if your John Curley had a daughter named Ellen?
"Our" Ellen was born about 1830.
She apparently remarried a Pat McMurn (or possibly McMurrin) between 1860 and
I have not located any information about them.
Thanks for contacting me. Sure hope we can connect these lines.

James' mother was Jennie Bruce (who I know much about), and his father
was James W. White; I am stuck at James W. White at the moment.
