Would anyone know if there is a county history that mentions Doc Smith
(Anthony Wayne Smith), a veterinarian or "horse doctor?" He was practicing
during the 1870s and may have lived in Malcolm, Ia. His wife was Melissa A.
Knight, daughter of Hiram Knight.

I wonder if anyone is familiar with the New Craig House (Hotel) which was
located in Malcom, Iowa, around 1900. It was owned by Anthony Wayne Smith,
a veterinarian (horse doctor) who practiced in Montezuma. He was owner when
he died, ca. 1900.
Would anyone know the date of Doc Smith's death? His obituary appeared in
the Malcom Press, date unknown. Burial was in Bluffton, Winneshiek Co., Ia.
Any help would be helpful and appreciated.

I am searching for information on a Thomas and Elizabeth Leek that were in
Jefferson (I am assuming township) in 1880. They had children by the names
of George, Sarah, Hannah (wed a Robertson I believe), Julie (wed a Cahail I
believe) and Amanda who I believe married Peter Smith.
I am looking for family history, obits, anything that might mention the
parents of Thomas Leek. The name is spelled both ways in the records back in

I. Your new RootsWeb mailing list:
OK, good news: your mailing list is ready to roll. Briefly (very), people can subscribe to your list in mail mode by sending a message to
WASSER-L-request(a)rootsweb.com that contains the word
and nothing else. If they prefer digest mode, they should send the command instead to
To unsubscribe, they should send the command "unsubscribe" to WASSER-L-request(a)rootsweb.com
(if in mail mode) or WASSER-D-request(a)rootsweb.com (if in digest mode.)
To switch from one mode to the other, they should unsubscribe from one and then subscribe to the other. There is no "no mail" mode -- if they want messages to stop, they should simply unsubscribe. (Suggestion:
use these commands to subscribe to WASSER-L, as no one at all is currently subscribed, and then send a test message through. Take your list for a test drive, in other words.)
To post to both WASSER-L and WASSER-D, messages should be sent to
WASSER-L(a)rootsweb.com. Messages sent there will appear both places.
