Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started tracing both sides of my family over 12 years ago to help my mother because she did not have a computer. Just recently I discovered Find-A-Grave and was excited to be able to post many of their graves as a memorial. I also appreciate being able to find other relatives that have memorials already. I am directly related to Luke Blevins, born 1799 in North Carolina; on my mother's side and William Amos, born 1690 in England; on my father's side. I have found that I am very addicted to Genealogy and just love to solve mysteries.

Joseph Talcott Rawson
After rechecking the obit, I think the age is 50 years instead of 59. It is blurred and hard to read.

Joseph Talcott Rawson
The Painesville Telegraph dated 2 Apr 1874 p 2
At his residence in Taylorville, Fayette County, Iowa, March 21st, Joseph Rawson, aged 59 years, 8 months and 11 days. The deceased was a native of Oneida County, N. Y., but resided in Lake County (OH) over 42 years.
(Thought you might want to add his obit)
I also left a forget-me-not for an obit I found for his five year old daughter. If you find a grave for her, I will remove it. Just wanted her connected to him in some way for anyone doing family research. Thanks

Andrew J. Thompson
Could you link Andrews father and mother to his memorial, and I can delete my duplicate memorial. His date of death is March 9, 1932 in sargent, custer nebraska.

father # 61479267
mother # 61479266

additional information:

Andrew J. Thompson has been a resident of Custer county several years and has lived in the state much of the time since 1884. He is well known in his community as a prosperous and successful farmer and a substantial, progressive citizen. He was born in Peoria county, Illinois, July 17, 1857, third in the family of seven children born to James and Caroline (Coleman) Thompson. Of these children, Daniel, James, Andrew, Ida (Mrs. Sturm), and Emma (Mrs. Williams), live in Nebraska, and two daughters live in Illinois. The parents were born in Virginia and Ohio, the mother of English parentage. They located in Dodge county, Nebraska, in 1885, and both died in Keya Paha county, Nebraska, the father in 1908 and the mother in 1907. In youth Mr. Thompson attended the schools near his father's home on the Illinois farm, and upon reaching young manhood engaged in farming. He was married in Peoria county, February 21, 1882, to Miss Vina Sturm, who was born in Clayton county, Iowa, daughter of Lewis and Harriet (Robinson) Sturm, natives of Indiana, the father of German extraction. Both parents died in Iowa, the father about 1866 and the mother about 1887. Mrs. Thompson has one brother, George, in Lincoln; a brother in Mitchell, South Dakota; a sister in Portland, Oregon; three brothers in Portland; one sister in Clinton, Iowa; one sister in Wisconsin. Mr. and Mrs. Thompson lived on the Illinois farm until the spring of 1884, then came with their young son to Richardson county, Nebraska, and engaged in farming there. In 1890 they went to Kansas and pre-empted one hundred and sixty acres of land in Lane county. After proving his title to this they returned to Richardson county, Nebraska, and remained there until 1904, and since that time have been residents of Custer county. Mr. Thompson had purchased, some time before 1904, one hundred and sixty acres of land on section nine, township eighteen, range eighteen, which is still the home place. He has since purchased the west half of section fifteen, township eighteen, range eighteen, adjoining, making a farm that is well adapted for stock raising and grain farming. Mr. Thompson is a man of influence in the community and is interested in local affairs. During the years he has been a resident of Custer county, he has served as director of the school board of district number forty-nine. He and his wife have five children: Albert L., married and living in Custer county; Lester, also of Custer county, has two children; Charles, Eva and Hazel, at home.

Following a period of five years as an invalid Andrew J. Thompson died at his home in this city Saturday, March 5. The funeral was held at the Coburg Christian church Monday afternoon, March 7. The funeral service was preached by the Rev. Homer B. Hix, pastor of the M. E. Church of this city. The singers were Mrs. Grace (wm. R.) Kidder, Miss Alzada Shettron, Ernest F. Morris and Harold Pedrick, Mrs. T.R. Lay playing the music. The songs used were "Face to Face." "Safe in the Arms of Jessus." And "The Unclouded Day." The pall bearers were Frank King, James L. Helmick. Leland Amos, Glenn Amos, Guy Brown and Henry Gilfert. Interment was made in the Dry Valley cemetery. Andrew J. Thompson was born near Mossville, Illinois, on July 17, 1857, and died at Sargent, Nebraska, March 5, 1932, at the age of 74 years, 7 months, and 17 days. Mr. Thompson grew to manhood in the vicinity of his birth, securing his education there. He resided there until his marriage to Vina O. Sturms of McGregor, Iowa, in 1882. In the spring of 1884 Mr. And Mrs. Thompson moved to Richardson county, Nebraska, where they lived until 1904 when they came to Custer county Nebraska, and located on land which they purchased in the vicinity or Coburg. There they lived for ten or eleven years when they purchased a residence property in Sargent and moved to this city. After living in town for several years Mr. Thompson decided to move back to the farm where they lived until 1927 when his health became such that they were compelled to leave the farm and again take up residence in their home here in Sargent. The last five years of his life he was confined to his bed and wheel chair. Mr. And Mrs. Thompson were the parents of five children all of whom survive him. They are Albert L., Lester E., Charles R., Eva M., and Mrs. Bert Amos of this city. Besides these his death is mourned by his wife, fourteen grand children, and six great grand children. He is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. A. E. Dickison of Peoria, Illinois, and Mrs. Hannah Clarke of Mossville, Illinois, other relatives and a host or friends. Prior to 1915 Evangelist McClure held revival meetings in Sargent, and at that time Mr. Thompson made the confession, was baptized, and had continued his faith. On Sunday, February 21, Mr. And Mrs. Thompson celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage. At that time all the children but two, were present, together with their children. Mr. Thompson was a kind and loving husband and father. "E'en for the dead I will not bind my soul to grief, Death cannot long divide. For is it not as though the rose that climbed my garden wall Has blossomed on the other side? Death doth hide, But not divided; Thou art but on Christ's other side! Thou art with Christ, and Christ with me; In Christ united still are we."

If you would prefer, you could transfer the memorial to me. Thanks
