|Dian Babcock ||Lydia Bellows Clark obituary|
Mrs. Lydia Clark was born at Wall Pool, Canada July 15th 1813 and died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Ann Harris, Cresco, Iowa, April 5th 1899 aged 85 years, 8 months and 20 days.
Miss Lydia Bellows was married to Elijah Clark at her home in Canada February 1833. To them were born ten children all of whom survive. In the Spring of 1839 they moved to Elgin, Illinois in the fall of 1851 emigrated to Dubuque County, Iowa from there to Looking Glass Prairie in the Spring of 1853 living there two years, when they settled on the old homestead in Freemont Township, Winneshiek county, where they lived until the death of the husband and father which occurred March 21, 1888 since then Mrs. Clark has lived with her children where she has had the tenderest care that loving hands could render.
She was one whose good works follow them in the grateful testimonies of those whom she nursed in sickness, comforted in sorrow and pacified in controversy, “Blessed as the peacemaker.” She was quiet and unpretending, going about doing good without display.
Her six daughters and four sons, respectable citizens, attest the careful training of a devoted mother who always felt that her highest duty was to bring up her children in the path of rectitude.—
They all settled near her and were all present at the funeral, except Mrs. Don Fifield, the others are Mesdames George Harris, William, Hammond, John Daskam, A. Back, H. Holcomb and John, Ralph, Bryon and William Clark.
Mrs. Clark and her husband lived and died in the faith of the Universalist church, and lived the life of Christians for the blessings it brought on earth as well as for the promise of blessings here after.
She suffered but three days in her last illness though she had been feeble for years, a sweet faced placid, uncomplaining woman fading quietly from earth to heaven.
Rev. Lane conducted the funeral services at the home of George Harris and she was buried beside her husband in the Kendallville cemetery.

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful winter photos of the Matteson family graves. I am very distantly related and not asking for a transfer, I just love the photos!
I also do winter grave photos here in New Jersey so I appreciate the effort you have made to FindAGrave.

|Jon Purcell||Memorial # 8097944|
The above memorial number is for my father, Bernard H. Purcell. He is actually buried at Greenlawn Southwest and not at this site. The memorial number at GSW is 7716482. Would you please remove this memorial?
|history4sure||21313980 Chandler Wheeler Dawley|
Thanks for the comeback, KC - perhaps I was not clear - I would send an edit, but I was now not sure about the parents because the bio info you added (probably 2007) stated he is the son of Benjamin & Sarah Hoard, but the "flower" you added in 2008 reads:
"Chandler Wheeler Dawley, b. 4/16/1832 & d. 3/19/1917. Son of Asa & Elsie (Weller) Dawley.
- KC Bolton-Potter"
I always thought he was a son of Benjamin & Hoard, but your flower was the confusion. Sorry ~ Shirleen
|history4sure||21313980 Chandler Wheeler Dawley|
Hi: Sorry to put this message here, but the noted memorial was not created by you & the contributor is inactive, so an "edit" was not an option.
But his bio data you provided for this memorial conflicts with pedigree information left by you on a later flower token for this man.
My information from Iowa, County Death Records, 1880-1992 lists the death of Chandler W. Dawley on 09 Mar 1917 at Cresco, Howard, Iowa, United States, age 84, birth year estimate 1833. Father's name, Benj. Dawley, Mother's name Hoard Certificate 79, Page 272.
Your bio entry confirms this, but the "flower" gives different parents. Please advise as this is in my family line. ~ I appreciate all your work and Thank you, Shirleen (history4sure) member # 46997739.
