Bio Photo I started research/genealogy into my family tree in 2009 and was bitten hard by the 'bug'.

I have found so many people that are willing to help, and I truly believe in returning such help whenever possible. I'll be happy to find and photograph headstones as a token to those volunteers that graciously have done this for me numerous times.

RE: Wm Lewis request at Woodlawn Cemetery
I am searching for a young man William LEwis, born c. 1847 and died bef 1870. I think 6 Apr 1867 in probably Polk Twp, Wapello Co, IA; however, he was around 20 years old and may have been living in Polk county. I was grasping at straws. My William was the son of Enos and Rebecca (Randall) Lewis. He was born in Edgar Co., IL. His parents died in Wapello Co, IA. Haven't found graves for them either.
Thanks for anything you can do to help me.

RE: Wm Lewis request at Woodlawn Cemetery
Thank you Jackie for searching the cemetery and records for me. It appears that none of the William Lewises is the one I am searching for.
I hope I didn't put you to too much trouble.

Notes for JARARD LEROY BOATWRIGHT:

Jarard Leroy Boatwright Gravestone

Known to his friends as "Tazzie", Jad celebrated 50 years of barbering in Denton, KS in April of 1952 and his friends presented him with a gold ring. He had purchased his shop from Albert Friend in April 1902 for $140 and set himself up in business - to stay, he said, until he found out whether he liked Denton or not. When Jad opened his shop a shave cost 10 cents, a haircut was 25 cents. One evening some of the old-timers were gathered in his shop, as they so often did, and asked him 'what things had changed since he came.' He thought the most important was the Denton school system, which had changed from a two room, two teacher frame building to the two comfortable, up-to-date brick buildings housing the grades and the high school, with eight teachers for the two schools. But the one of most vital importance to him, personally, was the change from oil lamps to electricity.

Jad had quite a trade cutting women's hair, but after the permanent wave, the beauty shops got his women customers.

When asked who his most famous customers were, he thought for a moment. "Well, once there was Harry Woodring. Then there was Matt Eylar, used to own the Eylar ranch, and was a vice-president of the Underwood Typewriter Co. And, oh, yes, a multimillionaire came in once for a haircut - only I didn't know it at the time or I might have charged more."

He was ill with the flu and complications for 2 weeks before he died in a St. Joe hospital.

OBITUARY: Jad Leroy Boatwright, son of Daniel and Martha Boatwright, was born in Runnells, Iowa, February 13, 1879 and died at St. Joseph Hospital, St. Joseph, MO, January 23 1953 at the age of 73, 14 months and 10 days.
