I think that I saw a message posted recently concerning the surname
WILLIE. I have since suffered a hard drive crash so I have lost the
I have in my genealogy files a Fred Willie who married June Ethel Carle.
They lived in the Omaha, Nebraska/Council Bluffs, Iowa area in the late
1920's or early 1930's.
Let me know if you are interested in exchanging info.
I am trying to find the death of George Elhannan Willey.He could have went
by Elhannan Willey.His wife was Sarah Bruce WIlley.He was born in 1859 in
Ohio and was married in Marion Iowa in 1880.Anything would help.Thank you for
the time and trouble.
For Decendants of Henry Baston and wife Mary through daughter Catherine
Baston, 1st wife of Powell Himes Hymes of Marion Co. Iowa.
Both Henry and his wife Mary Baston are buried in unmarked graves in Bell
Fountain Cemetery in Mahaska County, where many Marion County ancestors are
buried. Henry and Mary's last name is listed as Boston. In the Graceland
Cemetery in Pella is Washington Baston, a son, older brother to Catherine.
Henry and Mary Baston were early pioneers of Marion in 1847. Coming from
Danville Vermilion Co., IL. They returned there to live until 1870, later
coming back to live with daughter Catherine Baston Himes Gibson where they
died in their late nineties. Henry was a Hatter by trade as well as a
farmer. Their son Washington was an early pioneer of Jasper Co., and was
living in Fairview Township when he died in 1855. In 1860 wife Sarah is
there listed as a Saloon Keeper with nephew John A. HAll. Margaret Baston,
their daughter, was the wife of our Jacob Bumgardner. I am interested in
other Baston family members. Michelle Townsend Amsbury
I'm helping a friend trace his family. His grandfather was Joe Tonda and
grandmother Lucy Tonda. His father was Lawrence (25 Apr 1917-6 Aug 1975).
Brothers and sisters of Lawrence were Floyd, Tony, Norma and Julia.
There are other Tondas in Marion County, in particular Clay Township. In
the 1920 census there are Margaret with the following children: Tony,
Joseph, Frank, Katherine, Ellillio and brother in law Gustin. Also Joe and
Maggie with children: Floyd, Loyd and Julia. Both of these families were in
TIA for any help.
Just thought I would pass on this great site that I found the other
day. It is called GenLias . You have to register which is free but it
really has a lot of information on it. Not all Providences are on line
yet but they have births, deaths, and marriages on it. I have been
searching in the Gelderlands and all they have yet is the marriages, but
you can learn a lot from them. You have your choice to use Dutch or
English. On each marriage license it gives dates of birth or ages, and
if they had been married before the other spouses name. It also give
both parents names. I can't wait until they add the births and death
for Gelderland. Happy hunting.
Is anyone else having trouble finding death certificates for persons who died
in Marion County pre-1895? I am curious and wish to not waste any more time
if there is a high probability that none exist.
Just a quick test to see if the Marion County list is working.
Go ahead and hit the delete key.

Could some kind reader of this mailing list tell me whether John Columbus Casner died or is buried in or near Pella, IA? He was born 16 May 1838 in VA and supposedly died in Pella. I believe he died between 1867 and 1870. A Juliette Casner and son George A. Casner were living in the City of Pella Lake in 1870. I believe they were his family.
Thanks in advance for helping.
