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
