Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
This is just a short note to introduce myself. As of this afternoon, I am
the new administrator of this list. My main interest in Mahaska County is
through the Winn/Wynn/Wynne and Vance lines, but there are others as well,
all related to my wife. I will be posting some information in the near
future, but I wanted to take a moment to at least introduce myself.
Peg has had some changing priorities recently take up enough of her time
that she felt it necessary to give up this list and some others that she
was managing. I sincerely thank her for taking care of things this long,
and I hope she will be back soon. She has completely unsubscribed from the
list, at least for now, but she tells me she will be back in the near
future and I hope that is true.
I like to take an active part in the several lists that I manage, so you
will likely see my on the list from time to time. In the meantime, if any
of you would like to drop me a line personally, please feel free to do so.
If you have anything of general interest to Mahaska County genealogy, then
please post it to the list instead, and I will respond from there. I look
forward to working with all of you in the future.

Has anyone read about a Nathaniel McClure who settled in Mahaska County,
probably in the 1860s as an older man, and was listed in the 1870 and
1880 census for the county? He apparently had a farm near Eddyville and
a lot in Eddyville, too. He was born in Pennsylvania and lived in Ohio
before moving to Iowa. He was married three times that I know of. I
have not found a death certificate or will for him in either Mahaska or
neighboring Wapello. He had connections to the Jenkins, McCown, Stump
and Ferry families. Any assistance will be appreciated. Thank you.
Looking for a listing for the Highland Cemetery in
Mahaska County. I am intested in any Noel or Bacon's
burried there. I have quite a few of them listed in
the Appel Cemetery near Peoria. Can anyone help?
