YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL WHERE A BEAUTIFUL SOUL HAS BEEN BY THE TEARS AND THE SMILES LEFT BEHIND

My Lanigan ancestors came to America during the Great Potato Famine of Ireland. Their first child Sarah was born in New York in 1847. Her father John Lanigan and her uncle James Lanigan helped to build the first railroad into Fairfield, Iowa. (name spelled Larrigan in 1860 census) Both signed up for the Civil War in Jefferson County Iowa at Lockridge, Iowa. Both were Catholic. They both settled in Ottumwa, Iowa and that is when my grandpa James Aloysious Lanigan was born in 1860.He married Anna Phillips at the old St. Patricks church at Ottumwa on the South side.

Fell Cem, Patricia J. Peebler #9304573
Fell Cemetery #9304573-Patricia J. Peebler died in 1936 (stillborn I believe). Her parents were John and Pauline Peebler.

I noticed that information has been added for a Margaret MAE Peebler.

According to the obituary in the Feb 27 2013 Ottumwa Courier, Margaret MAE was born 25 Feb 1937 and died 26 Dec 2013. She was the daughter of James L. and Irene Downing Moore.

It seems these may be two different people.

Mike Shea, Vinton Co OH
Added pictures to Mike Shea's memorial 46459960. Looks like a relative? Heard a tale or two of him, he walked some great distances, exploring Vinton county while carrying a backpack. He stopped at a bar one warm day, and while he wasn't looking they slipped a brick into his pack. He put the pack back on when he left, walking out without apparently noticing the extra weight!

He is also credited with finding the Pioneer Cemetery in the Zaleski State forest (see cemetery photos for story).

Perlee Cemetery
I had looked at the photo and saw your name as the poster, so that's why I addressed you. I did see a couple of others by Richard but they were pictures taken at a distance. So now I need to contact Richard?? and see if he will post the Cemetery picture or give me permission. Thanks for your information.

Cemetery Photo
I didn't mean to confuse you. Part of it I was able to correct and add correct information. I was able to add William Lee#115818517 and Julia Ann Eddleman#99948407 to the Perlee Cemetery in Jefferson County, Iowa. When I added Perlee on William's the other cemetery was automatically taken off. Could you please post the picture you took of what used to be Perlee Cemetery (whats left of it) Or? could I have permission to post your picture giving you the credit for your picture?? Thanks.

Cemetery photo
I hope you can help me out. I have two people I need a cemetery picture on and I see that you posted a picture of the old Perlee Cemetery in Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa. My G G Grandmother Julia Ann Eddlesman 1806 passed April 1872 #99948407 is buried their. I did research with Verda Baird many years ago and she pulled up records on what cemetery she is buried in. It was a unmarked grave. My G G Uncle William Wesley Lee is also buried in the Perleee Cemetery right next to Julia, that is before a farmer bought the land and plowed all the cemeteries under, his was also unmarked. Williams info: birth 1847 death 1876 #115818517. You posted another cemetery in with William which is incorrect. Can you take the Cemetery you posted and swap it out with the Perlee Cemetery. My #47233907. I can be contacted at nstolns@gmail,com Being the other cemetery photo is one you posted I cannot remove it. I can take your picture and put it their but photos you take are copyrighted and I don't use anyone else's copyrighted photo. Their are laws on copyright's. Please let me know that you can do this for me. Many thanks.

Best regards,
Nita~
