Does anyone have access to the Tama Herald archives?? I'd like to
get a copy of the obit for Dr. William Henry JONES who died
28 March 1909 in the Phillippines. He was an anthropologist for the
Field Museum and was killed by headhunters.
In a LDS film for the Tama Co. Obits, I found a card indicating
that the Tama Herald ran an obit on Dr. Jones on 1 April 1909.
I looking for any information on the DEW family. They are in the 1960 Census
I found Nancy and Hiram's marriage in an Index. Does anyone know who I would
contact to see if there is a marriage license, or if there would be a marriage

This is a real stretch in my search for this family.
Grover L. Brown married Jennie Simmons. I'm guessing they were born
1820s or 1830s. Their daughter, Mary Lillian (Mollie) Brown was born
1856 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
I have a photo of Mary where she appears to be somewhere between 12 & 17?
On the back of the photo it says "Gilbert's Fine Arts Gallery, Traer,
1. Has anyone heard of this photography/fine arts studio?
2. Is anyone searching this Brown family?
I have been unable to locate the Browns in any Michigan or Illinois census
records(where Mary married in 1877). I thought, perhaps, by the back of
this photo, that they might have lived in Traer, Tama County for awhile.
