Bio and Links
My interest in genealogy began long before I had the time to do very much with it but I started by gathering information in 1993 from my grandparents. Then my cousin took my information in 2001 and really completed the maternal side of my family tree.That left my paternal side unfinished.My great-grandmother, Bessie Spurgeon Horn, was an avid collector of family obituaries and newspaper articles. I began scanning them into my computer and slowly started making some sense out of the connections. My five children have finally flown the coop and that leaves me time to really get busy with the information I have collected. I appreciate all that people have posted on the various websites on the Internet and have begun to post as many of the obituaries and newspaper articles that my Great-grandma Bessie collected as I can. As most of them are of her cousins and their families, I have even branched out and researched those connections in order to make these valuable resources available to distant family members.Please feel free to "snatch" them from the Internet and use them in any way you want. If a higher resolution copy is needed, just email me and I will be glad to send it to you.

Thanks...and happy hunting!

(PS If you use my photographs and belong to the Horn or Spurgeon family, I would like to hear from you and perhaps compare notes....)

Spurgeon family
I added the links for Mary. As for Phoebe, I got the dates from the cemetery book by Washington Co Historical Society. I do not understand what the difference is between the photo and the dates on the memorial. I looked at the full version and it says Jan 20, 1844. It does not give the birth date but says she was 3yrs and 5 months. Going back brings her being born in Aug 1840. If there is a number of days added on the stone I can not read it. If so let me know and I can change it. These cemetery books have been known to have some mistakes. Please never remove your photos. I enjoyed looking at them. And from the looks of that one, it is unlikely that anyone will be able to get another photo.
Are these relatives of yours?

I must have had several senior moments. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. With the exception of one, I deleted the newest duplicates.
The exception had a link so I deleted the earlier one. Again, I assure you this was not intentional.
Thank you once again

John William and Delmar Jones
I am doing some research for my brother-in-law who knows nothing about his dad's family except his grandparents' names and the fact that they lived in Davis Co., Iowa and that his grandfather was killed by lightning in 1925.

His parents were: Ross and Mildred Jones

Grandparents: Delmar and Julia Maude Jones

It appears to me that his great grandparents were
John William and Olive F. Jones. Any family stories, newspaper articles, obituaries, or other ancestor information would be greatly appreciated.
