Bio and Links
Bio Photo My roots are from Appanoose county, Iowa, and Perry county, Pennsylvania on my father's side (Hunter, Burkepile) who came from Scotland/Ireland and Germany, respectively. My mother's side (Harper, Gilmour, Taliaferro) included American pioneers from the 1700's who came from Scotland (Harper), Ireland (Gilmour), and England (Taliaferro) who spread to Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois and other states west.

My husband is descended from the Bartels family of Schaumburg-Lippe, Germany who settled in Saline County, Nebraska; and from the Tatkenhorst family from Oppenwehe in Lubbecke Germany who first settled in Bartholomew County, Indiana and then came to Lincoln County, Kansas.

I have done, and continue to do, research on all the family lines on both my and my husband's side. I have a great deal more information on the family from Lincoln County, Kansas (St. John's and St. Paul's are the churches where they are buried).

Adam Brunner
Regarding the message note on Adam Brunner's (1850-1910)grave. Adam Brunner was married to Marie Neese Engleking, but she is not the one on the side of his headstone and this Fredrick Neese was not her husband. These are her parents. Marie Neese was born to Frederick (1823-1910) & Marie Neese (1823-1915) Sept 1856 in Germany. Marie emigrated to the US with her parents in 1883. Marie Neese married Henry Engelking between 1883-1885. Henry was a widower with six children. Family stories say he sent for a German bride and married her as soon as she arrived. They had one daughter Louise Engleking. Henry died in Kansas in 1894. Marie and Louise moved to Ohiowa with German friends they had met in Kansas. Marie Neese Engelking married Adam Brunner in 1897. Marie died in Jul 1936 (she is listed in the 1920 census with her daughter in Converse Co. Wyoming and the 1930 census in Ohiowa as Marie Bruner).

Thank you for letting me clarify this.

RE: Pauline Long, Norwood Cemetery
I don't have a phone number, but the contact person for the Norwood Cemetery Fund is Delmar Collins, 20139 N. AR Highway 244, Siloam Springs AR 72761 (per sign posted at the cemetery) If he doesn't handle records, maybe he can refer you to the correct person.

RE: Pauline Long, Norwood Cemetery
I'll try to find that for you. I think there is a sign there.
I didn't find any recent funeral home markers either, thought I would.

Alice Warner Dunn
I was actually asked to add the photo that someone from the Powderhorn area had taken. I would suggest you contact Loline Sammons #47211136 to find out if Alice is actually buried there. Loline has a lot of ties to that area.
Thanks for your interest. Rita

RE: Family member biographies
Thank you. The only D J Shaw I can find is David Jackson (born 1840 - died 1902) buried Alexis, Mercer County, IL and married Nancy Armstrong. His sons are buried in Norwood Cemetery, which I ran across by accident, in Mercer County.

I was thinking about this - my family was in Burlington, Iowa until their son Ira graduated from high school, then moved across the river to Henderson County, IL. They stayed there until my father went into the army for WWII - when he came home from the war, he moved to where we live today. There were more jobs available here, so that's just short of 100 years in Henderson County, IL. That's (at least) 1850 to 1947 in one county. My sisters and I have always been more fond of Henderson County than the one where we grew up.

Yhsnk you again.

RE: Family member biographies
Thank you. I'll have to look into this - the Woods are related through marriage with my Browns. Hmmm. maybe this will end up being my family - I have so many trails to follow - I think I'm related to everyone in Henderson County which really makes sense - when you have members of large families marrying each other.

IOOF Cemetery Location
The IOOF Cemetery is located off Hwy. 6 less than 1 mile east of Hurdland, MO. Turn right (south) on Blacktop A, go one-fourth mile. Cemetery is on east side of road, a well maintained flat location.

If you need anything else, let me know. Alberta

RE: Phebe Huston Coghill
Sure. It's good to hear from you. I have some Hustons - I might as well work on them this winter. Let me know if there are any you want transferred. You're doing a great job.
