Is anyone researching the John Douglass and Sarah Elizabeth Sharer Douglass family? I believe they married in Illinois about 1866/67. Not sure.
I am looking for the parents and siblings of Sarah Elizabeth Sharer who was born Nov. 1, 1842 in Penn. and died July 31, 1919 in Malcom, Iowa. She would be my Gr Grandmother. Her daughter Edna Douglass Peters my Grandmother.

I am looking for any information concerning Lalo Mae Shannon, who was born in sheridan, Ia February 1, 1896. Her parents were James David Shannon (born 1867) and Laura Berry(born 1868). We believe that Laura Berry's family was from that area.
I would appreciate any information you have on them.
For Margaret who was looking for information on the
Fleener family, have you tried contacting a volunteer
on the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness website?
Perhaps someone there might be able to help you.
Here is the link:
Best of luck to you! :)
Do you Yahoo!?

My great grandparents are Michael and Sophronia O KNOX FLEENER. They lived
in Poweshiek CO, Iowa. Their daughter Sophronia O FLEENER QUAINTANCE, born
1880 in Searboro, Iowa; is my grandmother. She was one of 15 children.
Michael FLEENER died in September of 1892, I haven't been able to find a
death record, burial place, obit or the complete list of the 15 children.
Any information would be appreciated.
I am trying to find the whereabouts of Jacob Miller. Jacob Miller was born in 1826/27 Rockingham County Virginia, near Timberville. He married Catherine Rife in 1847. In the 1860's he, his wife and family and many of his brothers migrated to Poweshiek Co. Iowa. They lived in Warren Twp. Before the 1880 census Catherine Rife Miller died. It is unknown where she is buried. Jacob Miller married a second time to Martha Beatty about 1882/83. They are enumerated on the 1885 census, Jacob age 58 and Martha age 35.
I would like to find out when Jacob died, if he died in Poweshiek County, and where he is buried. Jacob Miller is my Gr. Gr. Grandfather, his first wife Catherine Rife Miller is my Gr. Gr. Grandmother.
