The temperature cools, the leaves change color and the bountiful harvest
takes place in Iowa as we slip into autumn. A wonderful thing to harvest is
an Iowa county! We have several that are definitely worth "picking" -
Cedar, Keokuk and Fremont. You'll want to take a few moments and visit
these wonderful counties. Just send an email to the Welcome Hostesses with
your "pick" of counties at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and we will
send you an application and get you started!

Hello! I just saw an old post on John Wenger. I am helping a dear
friend with her genealogy. Her parents were John and Rachel Harriett
Gaddie Wenger. Does anyone know how to get in touch with Leona
Comstock, author of the post? It was dated 27 July 2001 and her email
addy she listed no longer works. Please, can anyone help?
Thank you so very much.
Thanks to the tip from Keith, I contacted the cemetery personnel at Anamosa
City Hall about Riverside Cemetery burials. I learned their records show
this Asenath Preston was buried 08 Dec 1884, said then age 65. That
information is consistent with Iowa Graves, but conflicts with the Jones
County Genealogical Society information at the Jones County GenWeb database.
Separately, from city hall, I understand this Asenath's grave is located at
Lot 32, Blk 3, add. 2.
The cemetery office does not have a cemetery map or other means of
determining who might be buried with this Asenath.
Might there be a kind soul who could help me discover more about the
monument at her grave and those buried around her?
Suggestions welcome. --GJ
FYI: From the same source, I understand there are two other Preston
lots/plots in the cemetery.
Charles H. Preston, at Lot 1 with apparent wife and George Preston at lot
309 with apparent wife.
How might one learn more about a single grave and/or monument at Riverside
I'm wondering about the monument/transcription below:
GIVEN NAME Asenath (Butler) Preston
NOTE 85 yrs - w/o Wm C Preston d 1837 Williams Co. OH
There would seem no question this monument is about my ancestors-but all
other research suggests she was buried elsewhere such that this is a
I'd like to know why this monument or grave is there and who else might be
buried around her.
Separately, is there a cemetery office? I'm hoping I can learn about when
the lot was purchased and by whom. There are other Preston names buried in
that cemetery, but I believe they are descendants of a so far unrelated
family. As such, I'm less interested in the alpha listing then I am the
cemetery layout information. --GJ
