Does anyone know of the existence of a Bohemian National Cemetery at
Vinton? If there is one, how do I access it? I believe I have Novak
and/or Hanousek maternal ancestors buried there, but it's hard to
research from out here in Wash. state. Thanks in advance for any
look-ups or information.

Subject: TAMA COUNTY WEB PAGE
Tama County-l list owner.
I have been trying to get in contact with the TAMA COUNTY GEN WEB PAGE
but none of the email addresses are any good. They are all
undeliverable and I am unable to post any queries to that list.
Is there any way that you can get in touch with the Gen Web site to
get a good email address? I would like to get some info from them on
my SPENCER Family.
If you can get me a good address I would greatly appreciate it.
I am in need of a family lookup on my SPENCERS who lived in Columbia
Twp., Tama County from 1870 to 1880 or longer
The info I am looking for is this
Perry R. SPENCER his wife Delia (SMITH), their children Emory and
Emily. I know they were living in
Columbia Twp. in the 1870 and 1880 Census Records.
Emily moved from the family home between 1870 and 1880. I would like
to know who she married and names of children if any.
I know that Emory was still living with the parents in the 1880
Census. I do not know what happened after that.
I also would like to know if Perry and wife Delia died there in Tama
county. I would like to know who Emory married and any children if
Perry and Delia had a third child Ellis L. SPENCER who was my great
grandfather. I know who he married and where he went just not the
rest of the family.
If there is some kind person who could do these look up for me I would
greatly appreciate it very much. I will gladly pay for any copies of
I will be in Massachusetts for the next month and I will be doing
research in the Boston area if any one needs any lookups.
I am researching the CARNEAL/CARNAL and other variations. The
information I have so far says that Patrick CARNEAL/CARNAL (?) was born
in Ireland in 1756, was married in VA in 1777 and died in VA in 1835.
I have found a townland in Antrim Co. called Carneal but have been
unable to find any other information about it.
My direct ancestor is my great-grandfather Benjamin Walker CARNAL born
May 3, 1882 in Tama, IA. He was the son of Archibald T. CARNAL, born
August 23, 1836 in Caroline Co., VA, died December 27, 1889 in Tama,
IA. He married Catherine A. HALL.
One of Benjamin's brothers (Benjamin was the ninth child) was Nate
CARNAL. Nate was Tama County supervisor. His son Edwin was Mayor of
I have no idea where the family was between Virginia and Iowa. The
story is that they were plantation owner in Virginia and fled during
the Civil War.
I would love to share information.
