Can someone tell me if the Iowa State Historical Society carries microfilm
of 1894 Knoxville newspapers? I am searching for an obituary of Jane
Alexander who died in Knoxville on October 19, 1894.
Also, where would I go to look for a will of someone who died in Knoxville?
I'm researching the Sylvester Marion DeVeny and Emma Estell (Camp) DeVeny family. Sylvester was born in Marshall County, Indiana on 7 Apr 1865. He died in Swan, Marion County, Iowa on 30 May 1925. Emma was b. 14 Nov 1857 in Marion County, Iowa, and died in Jun 1946.
They had the following children: Stella DeVeny, b. 12 Sep 1879 who married Clarence Taylor; Martha DeVeny, b. 22 Jul 1881; Jacob Ross DeVeny, b. 10 Oct 1883; Edson Camp DeVeny, b. 30 Jan 1886; Emma DeVeny, b. 23 May 1888; and Wilma Lea DeVeny, b. 24 Jul 1889 who married C. R. Taylor and a Mr. Phillips.
If anyone is researching any of these people, I would love to exchange information. I can be reached at the following: depaolos(a)Bluemarble.net.

St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Pleasantville Marion County, Iowa is still
in existence and thriving. It looks the very same now as it did when I was
growing up in Pleasantville, Iowa.

There is a United Methodist Church in Pleasantville (Marion) that was in
existence through that time frame. It is still in existence today. I think
it is called St. Paul's, but I don't trust my memory on that one.

You were mentioning wanting to find someone who had died in 1935....made
me remember one death in my family...
She lived in Marion Co., but was buried one mile east of town in a
cemetery now in Mahaska Co. IA.
So you might want to consider nearby counties, where they may have
stayed with children til death and are now buried in the county of that
Also, the genealogical libraries sometimes have this info. You might
try calling them to see if they have the name you are looking for and
see if it is listed in their cemetery listings. There are many ways to
go about this, which makes it so much fun. Good luck.
I will add something....I put an item online several years ago in Marion
Co (a pioneer) and am now just receiving messages from several distant
cousins who are connected. It has been great hearing from these people.
This is an amazing journey!

Am trying to locate information for Isaac M. WALKER. He married Eugenia
M. BURCH daughter of William Benham BURCH and Sarah Jane KINSLOW, on 05
Jan 1871 in Marion Co. IA. He was a witness at marriage of Joseph R.
BURCH & Maud D. VAUGHN 1895 in Pottawattamie Co. IA.
Where, when to whom was he born? Where & when dd he die? Did they have
any children? She supposedly died 26 Jan 1935 in Marion Co. IA, but I
have found no record of this.
Any help or suggestions regarding this family would be greatly

I still haven't been able to locate death & burial place for
Trizah/Terzah/Tirzah BURCH CORNELL. I have a date of 18 Nov. 1933 in
Bussey, IA, but have been unable to find any confirmation on this.
According to obituary of step-son, Lewis, she was living in Battle
Creek, NE at the time of his death - 30 Jan 1912.
I have written to Funeral Homes in Marion Co. IA and Battle Creek, NE
with either no response or no record found.
Would appreciate any help or suggestions.
