My name is Mark Wilson, and I am the new coordinator for Poweshiek County,
IAGenWeb. I thought I would introduce myself to you. I live in
Bettendorf, IA, which is a part of the Quad Cities. I taught and coached
for many years before retiring. Now I am a hypnotherapist. I have always
been interested in genealogy and have spent many hours researching for
myself and others. In the late 90's I helped people research their
ancestors in Scott County. I am married to Anita (39 years) and we have
one son, Blake. He will be married in July, so we have an eventful summer.
I look forward to being the coordinator for Poweshiek County. I welcome
suggestions that will improve the site. One of my next steps is to
redesign the county's home page. I checked out the other counties and have
some good ideas to make Poweshiek County even better.
I plan to make occasional trips to Poweshiek County. I would love to get
some photos of the county seat for the site. Let me know if you have some
research that requires my assistance...especially during one of my upcoming
visits to the county. I would be happy to help you.
A big thanks goes out to Sarah for being the temporary coordinator. Her
hard work is greatly appreciated.
I've "rescued" an old wedding book belonging to Walter C. WOLFE and Roberta
TAMISICA who were married in Muscatine, IA on the 15th of May 1907. The book
includes a certificate signed by the witnesses Grace H. LEYDA and Bertha
BRECKON along with the Minister, W. P. STODDARD. The book it appears was a
gift from the minister and is inscribed from him in the front. The guests at
the wedding are also entered into the book. Based on limited research I was
able to gather the following information regarding this couple:
Walter C. WOLFE was b. 1878 and died in 1953 and is buried in the Fairview
Memorial Park in Albuquerque, NM. His wife Roberta C. TAMISICA was b. 6 Mar
1883 in Montezuma, IA to parents Edward C. TAMISEA (1845-1925) and Lydia Ann
MORIARTY (b. 1848). Roberta was one of three children born to this couple
including, Margaret Frances; Roberta C.; and Fredric P. TAMISICA, all born
between 1870 and 1886. Robert and Walter had two children including, Howard
W. b. 1909; and Gertrude W. b. 1913. Roberta died in 1927 and is also
buried in Fairview Memorial Park in Albuquerque.
Census records provide the following info:
1900 census of Muscatine, IA:
Edward C. TAMISICA, age 54, born Oct 1845, married 3 years, born NY, parents
born France, a Railroad Engineer
Cathrin F. TAMISICA, wife, age 42, born Jun 1857, 1 child/1 living, born IL,
parents born England/PA
Roberta C. TAMISICA, dau, age 17, born Mar 1883, born IA, parents born NY/IA

I am hoping to locate someone from the family so that this wonderful old
treasure can be returned to family. If you are a member of this family, or
you know someone who might be, please contact me.
