up a couple obits for me. I have just discovered these dates for a cousin
and his wives.

1957 and was buried 1957 Oakland Cemetery, Fort Dodge, Webster County, Iowa.
His first wife was Frances Bishop Clagg born November 08, 1866. She died
October 10, 1908 and was buried October 1908 Oakland Cemetery, Fort Dodge,
Webster County, Iowa. His second wife was Florence Louise Clagg who died
April 22, 1965.

I am Cookie Welch (Abrams) originally from Fort Dodge, Iowa, now living in
Maryland. I have hit a brick wall. Am looking for any information on the
Dennis McCarthy family who came to Fort Dodge from Ireland in 1860. They
settled and raised 11 children, the youngest being my maternial Grandmother
Florence McCarthy who married John William Bradford. My Mom was Charlotte
Bradford who married my Dad Clifford Lee Abrams. His Grandparents came from
Ohio in 18?? David Jones Abrams.
Does anyone have any information on these families?
Does anyone know anything about wagon trains into that area around 1868? I
do know that Dennis' 1st child was born in Boone Iowa in 1868.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am very excited to find a Site from
my hometown area. Thanks.
I am looking for any information on Lee Augustus Hagedorn married Sarah Leona
Russell before 1881 in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Had 7 children. Lee 1881, William
Lark 1887, Harry 1889, Sarah 1891, Pearl 1894 and Daisy 1898. Lark Hagedorn
was my Father. His mother died shortly after Daisy was born, and his Dad
years later. Daisy, the baby, was taken care of by neighbors (at least
story I heard} and I don't know if she was adopted or not. Any information
would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Doris Holmes
I ordered, from my local FHC, microfiche #s 6038712 - 6038714 (five fiche
total) that include an index to the newspapers of Webster County 1884 -
1906 (plus quite a bit more) They are well done, and include notices of BDM
and family events. I found references to several of my FLYNN family, with
dates to order the actual newspapers or perhaps in the future the death
Good luck in your search.
