Bio and Links
I have been researching my family since the mid-1970s, shortly after my great-grandmother died and we discovered family papers and letters in her study. My ancestors came from England, Scotland, and Germany to this country. The early New England lines started in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and ended up in Wisconsin, where I grew up. Most of my other lines came to Wisconsin pretty quickly after immigrating to this country.

RE: Will Storie
That would be my guess too. It appears that his parents and siblings pre-deceased him. His wife and step-son returned to Iowa. Then WWII started, so priorities changed.

George Storie
Who is George Storie? A sibling of William or an uncle. There was a George Storie in Hawarden, Iowa.

William Storie
Calliope Pioneer Passed Away Last Thursday at Inwood. William Storie of Inwood, pioneer settler of Calliope, passed away last Thursday evening. 'Mr. .Storie suffered a stroke two or three years ago and since then had not recovered his usual health. 'Funeral services were held in a chapel at Canton last Friday and his body was sent to Lodi, Wis., for burial. Mrs. .Storie and his step-son, Albert Clemens of Sheldon, accompanied the remains to Wisconsin. William Storie came to Calliope about 55 years ago where he operated a dray line for a time. He had attained the advanced age of 75 years at the time of his death. While in Calliope he was united in marriage with Mrs. Marena/Irene (Wills) Clemens, who passed away a number of years ago. Later he married Mrs. Vern Buskirk, who survives him. His stepson, Albert Clemens of Sheldon, also survives him. Later while living in Hawarden he was superintendent of the light plant- When he left Hawarden he moved to Sioux City, IA and later to Fairview (SD). He lived at Canton, SD for many years and he was also superintendent of the light plant at that place. For the past 10 years or so he lived at Inwood, IA. Hawarden relatives who attended the funeral were Mrs. W. T. McPherson, Oscar Longinaker and Mrs, and Mrs. John 'SteinfiuitThe Independent; Hawarden, Iowa Thursday, August 14, 1941

Marena Storie
Here's my message to Kim
I'm in the Sioux City area.....janet

Well, that didn't stay a mystery long (Marena Wills Storie 1 person 2 burials or 2 persons???) 1 person, reburied 2 years later... .  Thanks..

I think I know why William didn't get buried in Wisconsin.   I found mention that he was re-married about 1931 and he was in a auto accident shortly after.  I do think he and his wife survived the accident.  ( The wife's name was Vern/Verna Bursink or something like that.

I think I found their marriage in Sioux City/Woodbury County Iowa.   But now that I'm looking for it again, it isn't coming up. 

I'm not finding a death record for him or the second wife..  but I'll keep looking..

My connection to these two is via Marena Wills.  Some of her siblings were married and friends with my ancestors.  My family surnames are Thomas and Willey.  Her first husband's family is also intertwined with those lines.   I try to add links and info on the various Find a Grave sites. 

So, I'll add info to Marena's Canton Cemetery that her remains were relocated to Wisconsin in 1926. 

I see some other "Storie" surnames floating around North west Iowa...are they connected to the Wisconsin ones??

My source was Gunderson Funeral Home. The obit from them has no date of birth. The date must have been left blank by me. The information of a birth date therefore must have come from an "edit". We are not required to verify info from an "edit". If you feel the date from the cemetery is correct, please submit it by "edit" and it will then be corrected.
