|Bio and Links|
I am an Iowa native - born here and still living in the great state of Iowa. I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years. I enjoy researching my family history and helping others with their family trees as well. I also have a passion for American History and especially Iowa History.|
Because some Funeral Homes and Newspapers are putting out disclaimers against reproduction or redistribution in whole or in part of the obituaries they write and FAG has asked members to not list the names of the survivors of the deceased I will NOT put the obituary on a memorial listing so please don't ask.
Obituaries & photos for genealogy and historical research are covered under Section 107 of the US Copyright Act of 1976, which means reproduction of obituaries and photos are prohibited! The copyright expires 56 years after the obituary is written. Any obituaries written before 1957 are no longer covered under the copyright law and can be used. (Thanks for the info and allowing me to share it,Casscogirl)
ATTENTION PLEASE: When suggesting a correction to any contributor common courtesy is much appreciated......please and thank you go so much further than being rude with other contributors....EACH of US have dedicated a lot of time to adding memorials, researching our own family histories and assisting others with their family histories. No one person's time or work is more important than anyone else's. Also, everyone has other parts of their life that deserve (and should receive) attention as well so be patient if you don't get a response to your request right away.
Unfortunately, I have to add this paragraph....there are so many genealogy "buffs" out there that are kind, generous, and fun to work with. However, within the last month or two I have had several individuals "demand" that I make changes or transfer memorials to them. ANYONE who has a rude request will not have it honored. :( Extreme rudeness will be reported to the administrators of this website. No one deserves to be treated rudely. We are all engaging in a passion for our families' histories and it should be fun.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

|Amber Bartels||RE: John D Baker|
I would live to exchange info. I don't have much let me explain why. John Camden (Guy's brother) is my great-great grandfather who married Ida Mae Forbes Baker. They had a son John T (Townsend) who married Emma Lureen, my great grandparents. Here's where it goes haywire, John T (I've seen him in census records as Towne J. We know they had at least two sons, James Floyd (1-15-15) and George Arthur (1918-1988). Emma died first and I think it was 1925 Perkins County SD). John T dies a few years later but date still unknown. My Grandfather James F told us that his mother died of the flu and his dad drown in a fishing accident. My Grandfather is taken in by Lloyd and Anna Funk Edgewood, Iowa verified by the 1930 census. We later learn that the original names my grandfather thought his parents Townsend and Elizabeth or Carrie) were wrong and proven through the Baker DNA Study. My grandfather and George reunited in the late '70's shortly before my grandfathers death in 1982. George's son submitted DNA for the study and that's when the names were verified and corrected. I recall family saying that Grampa never knew is actual birthdate and the year may have been 1915 or 1916. We have never located a birth certificate for him either. My uncle remembered James and George were separated but it's unclear if they were indeed passed amongst family first then orphaned out. I do recall my grandfather telling me he lived in an orphanage befor going to Iowa with the Funk Family. I am excited to see what you have since I have so little! Best regards, Amber

Iowa Girl, I am the granddaughter of James Floyd Baker who is the Great Great grandson of John D Baker.
My grandfather's parents were John T (Townsend ) and Emma Lureen
John T Baker's father was John C (Camden) Baker.
John C Baker's father was John D Baker
Based on your post/message we may be related as John D was also you GGGrandfather. Am I correct.

Thank you for both updating and linking Leland to his parents as well as your further research regarding his death and burial.

|Ken Snyder||RE: Ruth Cook|
You/re very welcome.
|Marty & Harley||Abbey|
According to the 1900 Census in Montgomery County, Iowa Sarah is indeed married to David D. Abbey..perhaps his nick name was Reuben.
|Casscogirl||RE: Request for permission|
Go ahead. I have no problem no problem with you using my information to explain why obits and photos from funeral homes and newspapers cannot be used. Thank you for asking.
