Mabel Florence Meeks Nemechek
Hi Bernice, can I help you clear up some info on her gravesite. Mabel was married to Joseph Nemechek born 1880, not the one born in 1849, that was his father.
Mabel was also married before to Charlie Kurth in 1906. Charlie died in 1912 and Mabel married Joseph Nemecheck also in 1912, and then she died in 1915.

Abel Monroe Harper Gravestone
Hi Bernice,
The gravestone picture you uploaded as the gravestone for my great grandfather, Abel Monroe Harper, is not his. It belongs to Frank Reed Harper, Abel and Belle's 3 year old son. My husband and I made an extensive search of Irving Cemetary in 2010 and could not locate a marker for Abel. My thoughts are that his widow Isabella did not have the money for a marker following his death.

Hello Bernice, I think I have a correction that I hope you can check for me.
Your memorial above for Joseph A Nemechek 114946819 born: 1849-1905 buried in Wright Cemetry in Belle Plaine,IA. you said there is no monument for Joseph A, but that there is a plot marked Nemechek & Mable Florence does have a marker in the same area. This is where the correction is:
Mable Florence Nemecheck b: 1888-1915 is buried there because she was the wife of Joseph Jr b: 1880-1963) this Joseph was Joseph A's SON.
This Joseph & Mabel Florence (Curth) Nemechek were m: 1912 but later Divorced. Joseph the son is in Webster co IA. (I havent found him yet)

The original Joseph A was married to: Hannah Elizabeth Green b:1855-( died in 1941 many years after Joseph A in 1905) Hannah Elizabeth is buried in LeHigh Iowa, she was the Mother of Joseph Jr. b: 1880.
I hope I have not confused you, I have spent a couple of weeks trying to get my head around this.
I am working on this family for a cousin in law. Virgil Bostian.
Joseph A. was his Grt Grnd Father.

If you have any questions, please let me know, My email is below. and Thank you for your excellent job of volunteering & getting all these folks in the right place.

RE: Cyrus Suiter
Bernice, I know W D and his wife were in Oklahoma for the 1910 census but back in Iowa for the 1920. I found Robert Grason (spelled different on every census) on the 1910 and 1920. It appears Robert was here for the land rush (or came with family that disappeared). They were living in Sutton Township, 4 miles N of Boynton and only about 3 miles from Okmulgee county. There are four cemeteries that I know of in that vicinity. All are still open for burial, but only two are well maintained. Cyrus could have been buried on the farmland also.

Send me a copy of the picture you have. There is a woman on the Boynton town council that knows a little about everything. I'll see if I can get hold of her. If Grandmother Lang is still alive and well enough to take visitors, the council woman may be able to connect me with her.

Anyway, email me. I don't mind and love a good hunt.

RE: Cyrus Suiter
Bernice, I have to return to this area in the next two weeks. I will try to locate something that will confirm where Cyrus is buried. There were tons of small communities from 1890-1920 in Oklahoma. When they disappeared, a good deal of the land reverted to its original condition. There are at least two known cemeteries in the same area where the Suiters lived that there is no trace of now. I will see if the town of Boynton might have any records. Did your Graysons stay in the area? Is there anything I can help you with in that regard?

Allen Hoover
The 1903 roll that is at the Belle Plaine Area Museum has Allen Hoover with Company H or A (writing hard to read) 4th Ohio Cavalry.
That is the only info I have on him.
Hope that helps a little!

RE: Elizabeth Nance
Thank you for your time, If you happen to run upon them somewhere then you can let me know, but it is no big deal. As far as being Irish, I cannot say just yet. So far on my tree it is right here in the states. Iowa, Mo. Indiana.

RE: Irving Cemetery
There are other Nance's in the cemetery but I am unsure if or how they are related as of yet, but if they are nearby you can take them as well. I will put in a request for them, I may find out later that I should have asked. Thanks. Connie

RE: Abel Monroe Harper

Thank you for your offer for photos on the Barnett graves but there is no need. All of my Barnett family members are here in the south.

Now, as for your offer to look for any other Harper family members, I will take you up on that.
The Harper side of my tree is on my ex wife's side of the family. I still do her family research for my three sons. I still need a photo of Abel if you can find his grave and any other Harper's.

Thank you for your offer and the work and contributions you have made to the Find-A-rave community.

RE: James Mattox
No, his middle name is Core. I have two different newspapers reporting his death. One was a very lengthy article in the Belle Plaine Union (he was well known in the area) and he was repeatedly identified as James C. The article said he was in the restaurant and ice business for 20 years. The other paper is the Oskaloosa Daily Herald where he was identified as James Core. His mother was Sarah Jane Else.

There's also a reference to J.C. Mattox (iceman) in Belle Plaine Biographical History published 1897:

Dennis Lee Brokaw, Sr. Lcdr. USN Ret.
Peter D. Spracklin
Ellen Spracklin b. 7/26/1855 as you stated most likely died at child birth as her mother must have died as a result of child birth three days later on 7/29/1855.

Peter married 2nd in 1857 to Catherine Snyder Russell and had at least 8 children with her. I beleive this Thomas R. was a result of that 2nd marriage. I have names for eight children and will add Thomas R. as a possible child of that family.

As for the spelling Brokau, this was not an uncommon mistake. The Brokaw-Bragaw family has about 20 spellings of the name but we all with a very few exceptions come from the Progeniter one Bourgon Broucard 1645-1720 born near Mouscron Belgium and Flanders. We have been in America since 1675.

if you find any more Spracklins near Peter and Mariah S. please let me know. I appreciate your efforts for Find A Grave.

RE: Conrad Boody
Don't know how to do what you asked me-put a px of their graves [Wright Cemetery, Belle Plaine, Iowa]for Conrad Boody, George Boody, Henry Boody, and Louisa Boody (Knop)on their memorial. I am happy to transfer them to you if you are interested. So you have my pxs of these graves that i believe i entered a few months ago?
