Hello veterans and newbies of the rootsweb. This posting has been preapproved my the list owner.
There are some really great folks who are willing to help just for the asking. I, myself do Volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville Georgia. There are Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost
and I am willing to do what I can. As there are 1542 prisoners on record from the state of Iowa and almost 300 who died here, I thought I would send my offer. . I feel the need to say I am not in anyway
trying to focus on the horrors of Andersonville compared to any POW camp in the north ..( i.e.Elmira ) or any others and do not wish to stir up arguments on this site. My focus is dedicated to ALL of those held prisoner
during this war , on both sides as well as all Americans who gave their freedoms for those that we enjoy today.. I just happen to be near Andersonville so this is where I do my work
Here are my sources of research.
There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by name...one by
Company and Regiment. I also have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list
which has the names and grave numbers of 12960 graves with only 460 marked
as " UNKNOWN " This along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of
the 45,000 who were imprisoned there which helps me find prisoner records because of
misspellings of the names or alternate names. I visit the prison site every
couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the
physical files. I would like to let you know of another service I offer
which is to take photos of graves for a small fee. Please do not consider
this spam as my research offer is FREE for the asking and will be posted on
this county site only once.
If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville,
please just ask.
Please visit my website dedicated to those Americans who were imprisoned and died in captivity while in the service to our country

Would someone be willing to look up a newspaper death announcement for a
George Washington Jones?
He moved from Boston and lived in or near Le Mars, Iowa. He followed his
trade as a shoemaker. He then farmed the Winslow Farm. He lived around the
Le Mars area for about ten years during which one son died at birth. A
second son Howard George Jones was born in 1894 at Seney, Iowa. About 1900
(+ - 2 years) George W. Jones became ill with pernicious anemia and had to
return to Boston to see the doctors. He reportedly died while in Boston
(however the Massachusetts Archives does not have a death certificate for
him). The Masons in the area took up an offering to send the family back to
Boston for the funeral.
I'm hoping that the newspaper for the Le Mars area would have printed the
death announcement and someone with access to those records would be willing
to look this up for me.
With Best Regards,
I am hoping someone can help me figure out where to
start. I am trying to find some sort of proof that my
Ggrandmother Anna May Bender was born in Plymouth Twp,
Plymouth County on August 18, 1872 to John and
Catherina (Frey) Bender. Anna would have been their
5th child of 8 if I have the correct family. Anna May
Bender married Fred Manford Baumgardner on Mar 28
1893, supposedly in Cherokee County. Any advice as to
how I could be sure this is the correct family? I
found an Anna listed in the 1880 Census in Plymouth
County with the parents listed above but was told her
parents names were Johann and Katarina. Thank you so
much for your time.

I've just finished uploaded quite a few more obituaries to the site - with
many more to go - but I am starting to catch up.
Also we have a new pages or 4 pages of Memorial Day 1945, with the last page
listing all those from Plymouth county who died in WWII.
A new page called Drum Taps about Company K. Both of these were contributed
by Linda Ziemann, and full of information. Stop by and take a look.
