Larry, I can't help with your query, but DO visit the Tama Co. Gen.
Society. It's the most complete and best organzied county genealogy
library I've ever seen. It's across the street north-east from the court
They have obits collected and indexed back to at least the early 1900 -
we found one for 1912. They are open in the afternoons, and well worth
making extra time to visit there!!

I am seeking information on the family of Daniel Forker (b.c. 1833) and
Rebecca Jones (30 March 1833 - 21 November 1904) who were in Richland
Township, Tama County at the time of the 1880 census. I am wondering
whether they appear in any of the county cemeteries or in the death
records. I am hoping to get out to Iowa next month and would like to
find their graves.
Rebecca was a daughter of James Jones and Susanna Dickerson. She and
Daniel Forker were married in Coshocton County, Ohio on 25 January
1855. They had at least six children: Allison [a son], Asa, Clary
[Clara?], James, Ella and Daniel.
Allison Forker wed Mary Connell in Tama County on 24 December 1879. At
the time of the 1880 census, they were living in the household of her
parents in Toledo Township.
I am not certain just when the family arrived in Iowa, but given the
birthplaces of the children of Daniel and Rebecca, they must have gone
west after 1865 and been in Iowa by 1868. I would appreciate any
information on the family.
