Abraham Runyan
I have information regarding Abraham Runyan if you are still interested. He was the son of Noah and Anna Barnes Runyan.
Noah Runyan (1777-1839) was Abraham's Great Uncle.

Marie Haffke Thoennes
Hello Karen,

Marie Haffke Thoennes was my Great Great Grandmother. Her daughter Katherine was my Grandfather George Koeplin"s mother.
I am looking for any information about Marie. I know she was from Germany but that is all. I have no family information about her. If you can help with any info I would greatly appreciate it.

Best Regards,

Dani Thibodeaux

I live out in Washington state, but have come back to IA and OH to do Moak and related research. I'm just now trying to get my tombstone photos attached in Find A Grave and trying to get biographical stuff up. It's always nice to find others who are following the same lines!

RE: Evert Meyer
How are you related to these people? Where are you located. I need to find graves in Iowa and California. Let me know if there are anymore you need.

John Curry Jones
Thank you for being willing to take John's tombstone photo. Carol was a good friend of John's and when I talked to her a few years ago she did not know the exact location of John's grave. She said it was too painful to go to his grave. It seems that until I get back to Iowa I will not be able to have a photo of his tombstone. Thank you for the information on Eldora Cemetery
