researching. Their names are BAKER, STARR, and DANKS.
I plan on visiting Jones County on Wed. May 5th and Thurs. May 6th. I live
in Freeport, IL, around 3 to 3 1/2 hours away. I would like to arrange my
visit so as to accomplish several things, and I would like to know from you
folks in the area the places to go and people to see to accomplish that.
Following are the things that I will be focussing on.
I am looking for one or two death records, and some land sales records.
I am hoping to find a couple obits from around 1910, and one in 1887.
I have some old photos from the 1870's and '80's with the names and
addresses of photo studios in Monticello, IA.
Some of my folks are buried in the Prairie Hill cemetery. I would like to
be able to talk to the pastor or some of the folks from the church that is
across the road from the cemetery, but don't even know what denomination it
The Castle Grove Baptist Church minutes from 1874 or so are on LDS
microfilm--is there an actual physical book still in existence, and can I

to consider this request.

I received the following from two Colorado lists and feel I should pass it on.

Dr. W. David Samuelson just sent the following to TOMBSTONES-L. I know that

Paramount Development Corp. has approached the City of Fayetteville, WV
and asked that they re-zone a 60-acre farm on the edge of town for
commercial use. Paramount Development intends to build 2 large buildings
that Wal-Mart and Lowes will occupy as well as several smaller out
parcels. The 60-acre tract of land however is what is known as the
Fleshman/Clark farm, it was the site of the Sept 10, 1862 Battle of
Fayetteville. The site also contains a battlefield cemetery, which
contains the graves of at least 24 American soldiers.
This property is in imminent danger of being developed, which would mean
this hallowed ground would be lost forever. We are asking that the City
of Fayetteville deny the request by Paramount Development Corp. to
rezone the property and help to preserve Americas ever shrinking
battlefield land, as well as, preserve and protect the hallowed ground.
We owe it to ourselves and to our ancestors to protect this land that
they fought and died for, this honored field where the dead from the
battle rest in their graves.
