The Eldridge-Bawden Families: The Ancestry and Descendants of Stephen Bawden, born 1812 in Redruth, Cornwall, England, emigrated in 1860 to Rockingham Township, Scott County, IA, in the height of the coal-mining industry; and Duncan Campbell Eldridge, one of the first to build a shanty at the foot of Main Street for his wife, Rebecca Lippincott (of the publishing family) and son Charles Henry Eldridge in 1835.

This book was commissioned by John Duvall Bawden (dec 1992) for Alice Richardson Sloane, C.G. (dec Aug 2011), published by Anundsen Pub Co, Decorah, IA 1986, with over 200 pps, photos, and a name index, hardbound in forest green with gold letters, done without a computer, and very little, if any, coordination with the publisher. There are many typos and grammar edits to make.

My mission gives this reference some dignity...I'll certainly share. You're welcome to leave a public message or personal e-mail.

WPA Iowa Graves Registration - see website - I am entering many of Davenport, Iowa's Oakdale Memorial Gardens burials. If you'd like me to transfer them, email me or leave a msg at 47303245.

The image of the chough [chuff] is an artistic endeavor to portray the national bird of the Duchy of Cornwall. Its numbers were so low that it has been put on an extinction list but has started to come back. This is the spirit of the Cornish people. The bird is about the size of an American crow and is a carrion eater. It does have a red beak and feet.

John W. Ross
A little bit, haven't found anything yet on his wife.

John Wesley Ross was an architect in Davenport, Iowa.[1] Originally of Westfield, Massachusetts, Ross moved to Davenport in 1874 where he designed several prominent structures. His son, Albert Randolph Ross, was a draughtsman in John W. Ross's office during 1884-7, and became a notable architect in his own right.

RE: Buttolph in Inland - Bennett, IA
We went to Inland a week or so ago but completely forgot to photograph Hoyt's stone. We will be going back soon so will get it then.

RE: Your Oakdale photos
I've been in the habit of going to Oakdale three days a week to work on the National Register of Historic Places nomination, so I decided to work on some photo requests, too. Stop by some time and check out the back side of the map kiosk. There's a lot of historical info on there now.

I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas.These were the biggest paintings in the world,50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.A.T.Andreas produced BATTLE OF SHILOH for Chicago, MONITOR & MERRIMAC for NYC, and BATTLE OF MANASSAS for Washington, D.C. Info to

John A Ross
Hi! Just curious. John Ross' father was John W. There was a John Wesley Ross who was an architect in Davenport, designed the city hall, who had a son Andrew, also an architect, born 1868. This couldn't be the same John W. that is the father to John A. Do you have any other information on John A.'s father? John is such a common name there are possibly more John W's in Davenport. I tried a search, but didn't find anything other than the connection between John Wesley and Andrew.

I see where you are related to the Reininga line. I have been doing research for a descendant of Kate Felthouse - or Velhuis who is a sister of Ann . Any info you might have on this line would be appreciated. I will also share. You may e-mail me.

RE: Ethel Reininga
Their grandfathers--Ernest Miller Hall and Miller Hall were brothers. I already had memorials for some of the Halls, so it was just connecting the dots.
Good luck in your search and research!

RE: Reininga - Forest Home
Done. Interestingly, Ethel Hall Reininga was Ernest Hemingway's second cousin. But you already knew that, right?
