Happy Easter everyone.
I have just added some new information to the Poweshiek GenWeb page...some
marriages and I have begun a death record project. It will take quite awhile
to complete, so I will update as I get names added.
We are also working on an obit project of early settlers and hope to add
some births in the near future.
Some time ago I was contacted by a family member, whose email I have
mis-placed. This individual I beieve was also descended from my
grandfather Cass Smith or is a Smith family member and I believe had letters
or other information about him. I appologize for the delay in contacting
him, however, somehow or another this correspondence was erased, so if he
would contact me again, I would appreciate it very much
I just added to the surname list.
I've been extremely busy at work so I've been slow at getting this posted.
Please check the page and if you have sent requests and they aren't listed,
feel free to contact me again.
Remember to include your email address with your message. It take extra
steps to find it and sometimes I don't find it if it isn't included.
