Althera Noel Davis Baker
I was looking of over your information about Althea Noel who was my great grandmother. It seems there are some corrections to be made. First, the correct spelling of her name is Althea. All of her children had the last name of Davis, including my grandfather Walter Quentin, who does not appear on your list of her children. He was born Feb. 12,1893 and died Jan. 28, 1980.

Bennett Stoy Shaug
Hello Becky,
My name Is Michael D. Shaug and I am writing to you to submit some additional information about Dr. Bennett S. Shaug you might want to add to the find-grave listing that I have come across in my research... Bennett was the son of Dr. William Henry and Hannah Sherwood Shaug... Hannah was a descendant of William Bradford of Plymouth Colony. Bennett was one of 16 children (that lived past infancy) and in addition to being a Civil War veteran, he also served in the Mexican War (I have his records from National Archives). He was married to Mary J. Shaug who is also buried in Eldon Cemetery, as is his father William Henry Shaug (who was a War of 1812 veteran and also a doctor. Bennett was a well know doctor there in Iowa for many years, and I have a copy of his obituary. His brothers included Dr. Charles W. Shaug (my 3 great grandfathers) who went west in 1852 on Overland Trail to Oregon, and who later died in Santa Maria, California in 1871, Henry Leedham Shaug who also went to CA, and William Bradford Shaug who was also a Civil War veteran serving in a California regiment. The Shaug family started out originally in Pennsylvania in 1700's, then migrated to western Virginia, Ohio, then on to Iowa in 1840's... some of the brothers then moved on to California (and a sister or two as well), while Bennett and Mary stayed in Iowa. Bennett's middle name came from his grandmother's maiden name... she was Elizabeth Stoy, who was a daughter of a famous doctor in Rev. War times in Lancaster, Pa (his house is a museum there)... If you would like more info., please let me know, I can send you what I have on the Shaug family, and on Bennett. I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you.
Best Regards,
Michael D. Shaug
