I believe my ggreatgrandparents Sidney F HEATH and Olive Melissa ARMSTRONG
HEATH GOOLD are buried in Page Co. He died about 1878 and she died in 1914.
Olive Melissa married Sidney HEATH in Galesburg, Knox Co, Illinois on March
According to the Andreas Plat Book, 1900 Land abstracts, Page County, Iowa,
Sidney F Heath bought 120 acres in the township of Colfax and worked the
land as a
farmer. According to the August 15, 1870 census, Sidney 27, Olive 23, and
Nora 1 were
living in Washington Township, Page County.
The 1880 census shows that 3 more children; Rolla 9, Lillie (Lillian
Lucinda my great
grandmother) 8, Sidney 2 were born in Page Co, and her husband Sidney Heath
died and she was living in Colfax Township, Page County. (Probably on the
has purchased in 1868.) In 1881 she remarried but when she died she was
buried next to
her 1st husband Sidney.
I would like to know where they are buried and would appreciate any
information that you could
furnish me concerning them and their children.
Looking for descendants of August Ericksson Strom and Gustafva/Augusta
Danielsson. They came from Mörlunda, Kalmar, Sweden in 1865 to Henry Co,
Illinois and then on to Bethesda, Page Co, Iowa between Dec of 1871 and Oct
of 1873. They had 5 children: Paul Alfred, Hulda Sophia, Peter August,
Amanda Caroline and John Edward Strom. Augusta Danielsson Strom is the
sister of my great grandfather. I believe that August and Augusta are buried
by the Lutheran Church at Bethesda. I would appreciate any help anyone could
give me or ideas of where to continue looking.

Looking for a needle in a haystack.
WILLIAM BAKER died 1 Sept. 1850 (Bible record), possibly in Indiana, but probably in Iowa. Most of his children were there in August (Page/Taylor counties). He may have gone to a different area.
Would anyone who has access to any cemetery records for any area please check for him. I've been searching for this record for a long time.
