Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family tree. Primary names are Arney, Dean, Fast, Johnson, Seborg, Thiessen, Veatch, Yost. Genealogy has been a magnificent obcession of mine for the last 40+ years.

I have so enjoyed working with Find A Grave and have appreciated the work all of you have done as well. Find A Grave Volunteers and their memorials have assisted me in finding many family members.

Please send all requests for updates and additional information using the "Edit" feature on the specific memorial and I will be happy to update. If you find that I have created a memorial for your relative, not related to me, please let me know and I will be happy to transfer management to you. Let me know your relationship when you make your request. Please use the "Edit" feature on the specific memorial. I do believe that Family should take care of Family.

All photos taken by me and posted are available for you to use without further authorization or release.

Happy Graving.

re: John Hauser 1825-1910
Thought you might like this old newspaper clipping. (if you would like a scan of the original, email me)

One of the earliest settlers in Marshall county and the first in what is now known as the Bethel Grove neighborhood, was John H. Hauser, who came to Iowa in the fall of 1849.
When Hauser came to Marshall of county with his young wife, and took up a claim on the Iowa river, he found and chose a spot where the prairie and timber met. Today, almost eighty years after his corning, the land he bought of the government still is the property of his two sons, George and L. W. Hauser.
John Hauser drove the long distance from his native Indiana to make his home in the "far west." He brought his own cows with him; out of the native timber he hewed the logs for his first cabin.
Wolves were then nightly visitors about his home and bands of roving Indians were often camped along the river not far from his humble abode. Deer and wild turkey were plentiful and the larder of this pioneer family was kept filled with choicest of wild game that was shot from the cabin door.
All the experiences of pioneer life were the lot of John Hauser and his bride of a year when they came to Marshall county. In the log cabin that he built Mr. Hauser and his family lived until 1857, when a large brick house was erected. This was the pioneer's home until his death, in 1910, at the age of 84. Mrs. Hauser, born Mary Arney, died two years later, Oct. 5, 1912, at the age of 83. Many of her father's family were among the early settlers of the same neighborhood, which was given the name of the "Arney bend," because of the several Arney families settling there.
John Hauser was of the substantial type of man, who came to Iowa to stay despite the obstacles he might meet with; a builder, who believed in making his little world and protecting his belongings. He and Mrs. Hauser were among the organizers of the Christian church of Bethel Grove, a church they attended thruout their lives.
Mrs. Eliza Whitacre, of this city a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hauser, was born in the log cabin in Bethel Grove, and is today the oldest woman born in Marshall county and still making her home here. She was born Oct. 28, 1851.
from Marshalltown IA newspaper Times Republican dated Friday October 5 1928

RE: Peter and Edna Schierling Photos
Glad I finally found the cemetery. It's located south east of Roscoe on the north-west corner of Rd East M S and Rd East 40. From the interstate exit at Paxton, it is 3 miles south, 6 1/2 miles west, and one mile south on the west side of the road. It's in the country on dirt roads. I took pictures of the entire cemetery so I won't have to go back!

Pickard Cemetery
I searched for the Pickard Cemetery in Keith County, Nebraska, in order to fulfill your photo requests and cannot find the cemetery. Do you have any idea where it is located? If you can give me an idea I'll go look again. Thanks

John H. Hauser, #76944296

There seems to be a problem with the John H. Hauser's memorials. There is one by Wayne Hartman in a different cemetery, but with the same tombstone picture as in yours. I don't know which cemetery is correct and since the memorials do not belong to me, I can't fix them.

There were at least two John H. Hauser's in Marshall County at the same time, even same towns on the census records which is why I think things got confused. The obituaries are for this John & his wife, Mary Arney Hauser, which match the tombstone.

However, he is not the son of Friedrich and Lucinda Arney Hauser,(this one was born in 1821 in Stokes County, NC and died in 1911), but is the son of George and Catherine Schor Hauser, born in Owen County, Indiana.

I will try and get his siblings with complete information and send them to you.

Thanks so much for adding these memorials.

Thank you for your respose. I really know nothing about taking care of these memorials.
Thank you for asking though. I was just wondering who may have put this on there.
