Info on Maxine Blazek's Siblings
I see in the bio for Maxine Blazek you have that she survived by her parents, one brother, Ivan aged five, and two sisters, Darlene, aged three, and Doris, aged seven months. I have Ivan. He is my boyfriend's Grandfather and is still living. Is there any info on Doris or Darlene? Thanks.

RE: Coleman
I have sent to you the two Coleman stones that I have found, wish I could have found more, but I think nature has claimed several stones in this very old part of the cemetery.

Ruch burial in Summit Cemetery, Scott Co., Iowa
Thank you for starting this memorial page. Are you actually related to this family? I just realized I'm related through Maria Catherine (Trinter)'s sister Elizabeth. Let me know either way.

Post Script: Obituary of Donald Kinser.
Re: Obituary of Donald A. Kinser.
Post Script: Some of the print in the newspaper text was impossible to decipher with 100% certainty. Therefore, I used square brackets to & question marks to illustrate the uncertainty of those sections.

Laura Beattie
I recently posted pictures of the grave for Laura Beattie from the Montgomery City Cemetery. The grave joined to hers was for JF Tim Beattie (1913-2006) and Helen Wood Beattie (1913-2003). I have a close up of that part of the stone if you need it.

Once again, I was glad to help.

RE: Charles Comer
I know that Robert was father of Charles and that Abner was father of Robert. Who do you have as father of Abner and how did you find it, if you don't mind my asking. My gggrandmother was Mary Comer Christy and I figured she was either sister of cousin of Abner since she named a son Abner but could never find out for sure

RE: Nellie Farrell 67630779
Hope I got everything done ok. Are you any kin to her. I don't know if I ask'd you that or not, sorry if I already had. I have some photos of her with her sisters from like the 1890's and one of her when she was about 10 years old with one of her other sisters but I can't remember who. I used to do but that can get pretty expensive.
Let me know if I can do anything else.

Thanks, Dan

I don't use Ancestry.
The place of birth of John and Lavina's five sons are mentioned in both of their obituaries.
Plus, they are on the Census.
The Iowa Marriage to M Ida 1913 will list his birthplace as Johnson Co. IA.
I ALWAYS have at least 3 sources before I enter information.

John and Lavina were married in 1848 and moved to just south of Iowa City, Johnson Co. IA on a farm where they stayed till 1872 at which time they moved on to Adair Co. IA. They were on the farm S. of Iowa City for 14 years.
All 5 of their sons were born to them there.

RE: Nellie Farrell (67630779)
Sorry it took my so long to get back, I'm not real sure how to do that. If you could tell me I'll be glad to do it. Are you any relation to Nellie. Burke was my great grandmothers family. I have some photos of the Burke girls when they were young and when they were older. I'm going to try and see if I can put it up on her site here.

Thanks, Dan
