********here is the email:
Dear Ms. Ziemann,
I live in Virginia but my paternal ancestors, the Whitings and Cassadys,
lived in Whiting, Iowa. I have certainly enjoyed your county site and
made some contributions of information. I have made some nice contacts
through the site, not to mention the tremendous amount of information
have available. I am the volunteer web master for the James Monroe
and Memorial Library in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
I have some items that I would consider donating to a local museum.
Primarily a family cradle that dates back more than 100 years. I am
if there is a county museum. Any suggestions are welcome.
I am not too familiar with the area since my sister and I made our first
trip in May to Whiting. A year ago I became interested in studying
history. We did spend time in Greene county with our maternal
I know they have a museum but also know the cradle was not made in that
There was a newspaper article circa 1969 detailing and with a photograph
another family cradle in the Sioux City Journal.
Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
