|Katie W||Mary E Waldon Coulthard 1854-1938|
The Eddies book, Nairn to Ekfrid and West, clarifies, " George Coulthard ... m. about 1867 in Iowa to Ella Walden .... Ella later got a divorce. George returned to Canada .... In 1874 he married Mary Dobie of Ekfrid Twp. and they came to his farm in Iowa."
Censuses indicate that Mary Ella Waldon was born in 1849 while Mary Dobie was born in 1854.

|Barry Mateer||Nelson Folger is not son of Henry and Emily Folger|
I believe that Nelson Folger could not be son of Henry Clay and Emily Folger as Nelson was born long after they both had passed away.
Henry and Emily obituaries are now on Iowa GenWeb.
|SeeFromTheHeart||John Littleton Case|
Question about "Littleton" as middle name for John Case. There are difference of opinion among some family researchers on Ancestry.com. One descendant says Littleton is not John's middle name and it does not appear on his grave marker. Would you have any documentation for "Littleton" as middle name for John specifically? I am researching for a family member who is a descendent.
|Paul Rolfe||Maryetta Martin|
I added the obituary info you provided. It is odd that her husband and mother both have the last name Martin according to the newspaper article. I added memorials for two more Martin graves (Lucinda and B. T. Martin) as they are in a lot adjacent to that of Maryetta. It appears that her husband Spencer Martin is not buried near her nor even in the Walnut Hill Cemeteries unless he also used another name besides Spencer.
|MrsB||Moulton H French in Rose Hill, Missouri Valley|
Thank you for the extra pictures you took for Moulton H. French. I was able to add some bio for him, and your photos helped a lot.

Finally got it done.
|Barbara Butcher||RE: Mary F Ruckle Davis (# 141778148)|
For some reason, the reply I sent to this message evidently never reached you. The date in the newspaper obit microfilm copy was a hard one to read, and after using a magnifier I decided it was 1861. I changed the birth dates to reflect that.
