I am a retired school K-12 teacher and administrator; grew up in Glasco, Kansas; raised my children in Mason City and Centerville, Iowa; and now live in Center Point, Iowa where I am the Clerk of the Trustees in charge of four rural cemeteries in Washington township.|
I'll be uploading pictures and obituaries for my extended family as time allows, and will be happy to respond to requests for help regarding our Center Point and Urbana area cemeteries.

|Flutterby||RE: Thanks for your great photos|
You are very welcome, Bob. It was a lovely day to go for a walk. :-)
Also while I was there, I took photos of the graves for "Alma V., wife of H.B. Heath" and for "Infant, son of H.B. and Alma V. Heath." There was no indication of a date on the latter.
I posted the one for Alma on an existing memorial but don't know what to do with the photo for "Infant"--though I did notify the person who manages the memorials for all the Heaths.
On a final note, there is a small broken stone laying down between Alma and "Infant," but I could not read anything on it.
Please let me know if I can be of any more help. I apologize if I have now given you more questions than answers!
Best wishes to you.
Very nice photo. Thank you so much for your time and effort. I appreciate it so much.

Your welcome. That was my husband and dau. I was behind the camera. But it was fun seeing them take an interest in their heritage. I'm just sorry I didnt think to see what requests there were for other photos before we went.

Thanks for your note, Bob! I have yet to do the 1950s obits; and if I see any trails left on the Kings I will send them your way!
|Distaffs & Spears||RE: Correction Earl Hunter|
Your assistance & updates appreciated. Keep the records (don't transfer to me) as you are closer (for easier visit/reference) and I am in Oregon. Thanks.
|Distaffs & Spears||Correction Earl Hunter|
There is only one Earl Hunter born 23 Oct. 1881 (your entry: Find A Grave #70649773), husband of Cecil J. Hoglan.
Sarah A. Thompson (born Apr. 1820) was the mother of Joseph Mel Hunter (born 29 Oct. 1859) , Earl's father.
|Distaffs & Spears||Records Update|
Your info & updates are welcomed.
To add to your info:
Earl Hunter – middle name: Nicholas; birth = 23 October 1881 in Center Point, Linn Co., Iowa; died = 02 June 1940.
Earl's wife: Cecil J. Hoglan – middle name: Jane.
Earl's mother: Sarah A. Thompson (Find A Grave #: 75518111)(recommend make connection). Earl's father & Sarah's husband (Joseph Hunter, born 08 March 1816, not in Find A Grave but supposedly buried in same cemetery as wife, Sarah A. Thompson).
Earl's siblings (recommend make connections):
(1) Blanche B. Hunter (Find A Grave #: 26804586)
(2) Elmer Joseph Hunter (Find A Grave #: 85430897)
For Earl's birth date (questioned 1858 or 1859): he died on 14 January 1944 and his age at death is noted at 85 years, two months and 17 days = 28 October 1858 (when calculated), instead of 29 October 1859.
Earl's mother: Mary Ellen Morris died 16 December 1930, your inscription note states "1944" (also, photo shows 1930).
Also, for Mary Ellen Morris (recommend make connections):
Father – Joseph C. Morris (Find A Grave #: 44647605) + my 3rd great grandfather, and
Mother – Lydia Hulsart (Find A Grave #: 44547711) + my 3rd great grandmother.
Thanks - Chuck

Your welcome Bob! And of course you can copy the photos for your Ancestry page. Thank you for the offer of help as well. I am tracing my family tree and if I find anyone close to that area I will take you up on the offer! Take care. - Dave
|Jan Myers||Thank You|
Yes I got the original photos, however, I have not had time to download them yet. Studying for finals! But thank you so very much. They will print nicely for the scrapbook. If you get a better photo sometime of Jane's headstone and if you remember please shoot it off to me. Thank you!!
