I have just added photos of old tintypes to my website. They are relatives of Wenzel Hubel and his wife, Mary Krska, early settlers of Tama and Pocahontas Counties. Wenzel and his son, Frederick owned land where Vining is now and are buried in St. Mary's cemetery.
I hope you will take a look and see if there are any familiar faces.
More photos will be added as I have time, so check back often.
I found a little clipping inside a folder of our g-grandmothers things.
I'm sharing it will you all, hoping it might be of help to someone.

I will be on vacation from June 12 to June 23. So if I don't get back to
right away you will know why! I will update all surnames etc. when I get
back. If you submit pictures for the Gravestone project, they probably won't
be up until I get back also. I am taking my laptop with me, but I am not
sure if I will have a place to hook up to the internet.

I just subscribed to this list so I don't know how active
it is, how many people are on it or who is on it. So I'm
just jumping in to see what happens.......
My name is Dean Fisher. I was born and raised in Tama
County, Indian Village township, son of Gerald and Mary
Etta Fisher. I live in Michigan now, but have bought the
old Fisher family homestead in Indian Village that's been
in the Fisher family since 1856. I hope to move back some
day soon. I'm doing some research on my ancestors and of
course finding a few questions that I can't answer.
If anyone has any information on Emmanuel Fischer or his
children I'd appreciate it. (The spelling changed to
Fisher somewhere along the line). I've found the Turner
Cemetery listing on the web where some of Emmanuels
descendants are buried, but as of yet I haven't found
Emmanuels grave. His wife was Catherine Haas Fischer, both
born in Germany.
Their children were Mathias, John, Martin (my great
grandfather), William, Theodore, Catharine, Amanda,
Christinia, and Mariah. Of most interest are details on
Amanda, who married a Hughes, Catharine, who married a
Jacob Turner, and John, Mathias (born 1847?) and William
I've found an 1860 Census of Indian Village on the web,
and the Turner Cemetery listing, and an 1895 Carlton
Township Census, and the marriage records from the 1860's
Well, that's enough for now!
