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.

RE: Transferring people
idk, I do one thing though, it's a lot like kindergarten... I don't understand the nastiness that goes on either.

I have been criticized publicly on my message board and turned in to admin for documenting cemeteries. Which is what the site is for. I'm not the only one doing it... but for some reason it's ok for some to do it, but not for me. I have also supposedly run off many of the photo volunteers, not because I grab all the photo requests, as a rule I don't do photo requests because I mow the rows...but now that everyone took their ball and went home.. I am doing photo requests..

I've also been criticized for how much time I spend on here.,yeah.. because "it's a volunteer position, it's NOT a job... you do it when you have time"""" that one cracked me up because I will decide how much time I spend on here, whether that be 1 hour a day or 10.. it's MY business..

There is a HUGE disconnect between people working their family tree, and those who document cems. From what I have seen and heard, much of the nasties come from those working family only..they don't "get" why anyone would document a cemetery, or why anyone would create memorials for strangers... and so it goes...

RE: glaspells
I'll be more than happy to make the transfer. I have absolutely no relationship to the Glaspell family. For a time, my working theory was that Charles and Pauline were the parents of a daughter "Elizabeth" who later married a Mulholland. But the fact that no such daughter - born ca. 1873 - appears on the 1880 census with them pretty much blew that theory all to hell. However, if there IS something to my theory, please let me know the details!! So I will let YOU decide how you want to display Pauline's surname. I rarely, if ever, use a hyphenated name but did so in this case merely for "research" purposes. Her 1921 death certificate does show just the "Daniel" name, however. So I will effectuate the transfer shortly. Thanks for contacting me. Tom in Kansas City, MO

Captain A.T.Andreas
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 sponsored three panoramas per Theophile Poilpot (1848-1915), the most prolific panorama artist in Europe. These were the BATTLE OF SHILOH (Chicago), BATTLE OF MANASSAS (Washington, D.C.) and BATTLE OF THE MONITOR & THE MERRIMAC ( New York City).Manager of this enterprise was Louis Aime Augustin Le Prince (1841-1890),cinema pioneer.Much info to share.

RE: St. Euny Churchyard
Hi, I emailed the Cornish Studies Library (cornishstudies.library@cornwall.gov.uk) about burial locations for those buried there and received this response. I thought you may enjoy reading it...


Thank you for your enquiry. We have an index of internments for part of St Euny for the years 1880 1986, but apart from that, you would have to contact the church (See here for contact details http://www.achurchnearyou.com/redruth-st-euny/) and ask to see their burial plans.

Burial plans are usually kept with the church (municipal graveyards are looked after by the Cornwall Council Burials Officers), so for each site that you are interested in, you would have to contact the church in question. Many of these are on www.achurchnearyou.co.uk. Cornwall Council has a list of the cemeteries it looks after at http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/a-z/c/cemeteries/

I will certainly look this info up...
Hope you enjoy,
Stacie

RE: St. Euny Churchyard
I know that the cemetery is fan by the church so any records would be church records. I really don't think there is a separate cemetery person but I could certainly be wrong...

RE: St. Euny Churchyard
Its definitely on my bucket list!!! I have looked at several websites and loved the pictures of it.. I found a family member who lives in Wales and she has been all over Redruth looking at where our family lived and worked and she has been to the churches. She said she would meet me there and show me around if I visited there. I am excited about that..

I emailed a lady that works for the churches, or something like that?-I cant remember where she works, in Cornwall or Redruth. She emailed me back one time But I haven't heard from her since then. I just emailed her again asking if she got me return email and if she knows if there is a map of the St Uny graveyard and all of the burials there.

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.
