Re: Cyrus Prindle Drake
Hi Melissa: I noted the information you listed to clear up the marriages of Emma Margaret Hess Drake. However, my husband, David Betzer, is a descendant also of James Elbridge Drake - Cyrus' father. I suspect the death date you listed is actually for a different Drake since Cyrus and Emma are both listed in the 1925 Iowa State Census - I have not been able to find a death date for him after that - do you have access to the cemetery records? I was hoping to request a photo of his tombstone the site won't let me since there is already a photo attached. Can you help? Thanks!

So sorry Rosa's stone is not more readable; the lighting was not very accommodating and even in person it is not highly distinguishable.

Anna Bell Hughes / James Hughes family

I noticed today as I was searching for information on some of my relatives (James Hughes/Hester Nichols line that you are related to Anna Bell Hughes Supler (2nd cousin 3x removed). Well Anna Bell Hughes Supler is my great grand aunt.

I can tell you have done a lot of genealogy research and I am wondering if you might have some leads for me.

I am trying to determine heirs of Anna Bell Supler. I have uncovered Warden Willis Supler and a possible Mattie E Supler. I don't show that Warden had any children. Is this what you found as well. As for Mattie, I found that reference in one place only so not sure that is even correct.

Any information you can lend to Anna Bell's heirs would be appreciated. Since you are related to James Hughes/Hester Nichols, as well... I am curious what line you descend from. I descend from Winfield Scott Hughes (son of James & Hester). Are we in the same tree?? Ha ha!

Thanks so much!

I added pictures to Glenn A Phares, Phillip H Phares, Milo H Phares and W H Phares all in Elmwood Township Cemetery Illinois. Not sure if these are in your group or not. Hope so! Happy Hunting!
