Birth: Jun. 16, 1876

Death: Sep. 24, 1947

In the 1925 Iowa State Census, Della was listed as being the daughter/o Dowe & Nancy Sunderland. I had a problem proving that she was the dau./o Lorenzo Dow & Mary E. LUCAS Sunderland, who did live in/nr Harlan but their dau. was Ida May SUNDERLAND b. ca. 1875

However, in the same 1925 IOWA STATE CENSUS, her dau. Veta HEFLIN Findlay stated that her par.s were: Orville B. Heflin & Della May ERRETT. There was such a family in that location: Farmer Z.T. Errett had a dau. Della May.

So. Della May --?-- wed Orville B. Heflin in/nr Harlan, on 21 Mar 1895, so someone has sd. I fd no rec.

It appears that Orville & Della had the one dau. Veta in 1896 and they remained in/nr Harlan their whole lives.

The 1930 Federal Census Schedules indicated that they were still on their farm in Center Twp, Shelby, Iowa but surely moved into Harlan City prior to their demise.

They were both interred in the HARLAN CEMETERY in Lincoln Twp, Shelby, Iowa just north of Harlan City.
