RE: Continued . . . MILLIS
Thank you Barbara for looking this up and for keeping track of those stones. I think he may not actually be buried there considering his wife is buried w/daughter. But perhaps the person who made the memorial had a source so will leave that alone and note that there is no stone for him. Again thanks! Sandi

RE: Donaldson Question . . .
My grandparents were Thomas and Elsie Watkins. Elsie's parents were Henry and Catharine Donaldson Winrow. Her parents were Adam and Rachel Donaldson.

Adam and Rachel's children were Adam Clute Donaldson 1837-1919, Peter Abel Donaldson 1846-1939, Egbert B. Donaldson 1844-1925, Catherine Rachel Donaldson 1842-1904, James Ryckman Donaldson 1835-1923, Garrett Hooghkirk Donaldson 1930-1909.

I have a public tree on Ancestry under Richard Cale Family Tree where you can see the family and photos.

Hope this helps.

RE: McCauley's in Avoca, Iowa
There is no rush, That stone has been there a while:-) I kind of like snakes, not a "I Love Snakes" thing but I have a good regard for their place on this earth and a curiosity about them.
I like birds, bears and such as well and even find most insects fascinating. So I was just curious as to what kind of snake would cause you to be so cautious. Most folks are nervous of Snakes. Its built in. Even though the local snakes have been around for years and I enjoy their presence I still jump when I see one.

RE: McCauley's in Avoca, Iowa
Thank you again, I just finished going through the data for these folks. What kind of snakes would there be there? I posted the photo with the grass as and attached your note in the family file.

RE: McCauley's in Avoca, Iowa
Actually its exactly the type of information I want.

My main goal is to log the families and their trees. Some to include and some to exclude. As I am going through these families I also like to put down any history that I can. Where they lived, what they did, And accomplishments.

So Thank you very much for the photos (I have not yet got to them) and thank you for the story. I will log both in the family files.

Frahm Family
Hi again- I just wanted to add that Dora's maiden name was Noehren and I believe her father's name was Henry. I don't know what her mothers name was. And I believe he was born in Shelby Iowa. Also there is one more child of Dora and John-William-the oldest. He was born in 1918 and died in 2005.I believe he was buried in a Catholic Cemetery in Ft Dodge,Iowa.His wife's name was Florence but I don't know her maiden name. If you could make a page for him the family would be complete. Thanks again!--Linda Adawe

John Frahm was born September 12,1884 in Holstein,Germany and died in Harlan on July 4,1963.I looked on their funeral cards that I have kept all these years. For Dora's birthplace it only lists Shelby County,Iowa. she died in Harlan. Thanks so much.---Linda Adawe

Virginia Frahm
Hi-My mother was born June 12,1926 in Avoca,Iowa. Her full name was Virginia May Frahm. She died on April 29,2009 in Alexandria,Virginia. My daughter has her cremains.I would not want any mention of my father on the page as they did not have a good relationship. I just want her to be remembered and a place where I can leave virtual flowers for her. I want her to be remembered with her family.Thanks so much.

Arnold Frahm
Hi-I don't know the details of Arnold's life except that he died from leukemia at three years old. His parents could not afford to bury him so he was buried in a paupers grave with no stone. My grandmother told me these details. I hope he can still have a page at the Avoca Cemetery. Thank you for all your work for my family. I really appreciate it.---Linda Adawe

Opaline [Saylor] Stevens
Hi, Thank you for the headstone picture of Opaline [Saylor] Stevens. Your time and effort is very much appreciated! Opaline's parents were James W. and Mabel [Downie] Saylor [his parents were originally from Harlan, Kentucky] and they owned and operated Hotel Saylor on highway 64 and 59 in Harlan, Iowa. I have an old postcard from the early 40's and written on the back - "69 modern rooms. Fireproof Addition. Elevator. Noted for good beds and Cleanliness. Rate $2.00 to $3.75. LARGE TV IN LOBBY". Opaline ran the Hotel after her parents died. Thank you again! Hope you and family have a blessed week. Karen

RE: Bertha FRAME
That was astonishingly fast, thank you! And yes, I'd be happy to take over management, she is family and I hope to do further research and determine why she died so young. Thank you!
