Bio and Links
Bio Photo My parents are Robert Kelly, deceased, from Anita, IA, and Judith Clark, happily alive, from Council Bluffs, IA and I am currently researching both lines. I would love to share any infomation I have and likewise would appreciate any help I can get!

I have always been interested in my family tree, but I took the other route and so I have a BS in Genetics from ISU, but I recently was given some huge genealogy books from my mother, which were put together by her aunt and great aunt on the Clark side of my family and so I have a new love. I have the most information on the Clarks that lived here in CB who were part of my direct line, but have some info on others as well. The Kelly family research has been promised to be organized this year.

John ARTHUR Danielson
Susan: I have no idea why I, in my first public message to you, called the young 2-year-old son of Captain John and Eva R. Danielson by the name Augustus. His given name was John Arthur, though he clearly was known as ARTHUR, as evidenced by the inscription on his dad's monument and the top of his own headstone. Sorry for the error...don't know where my brain was at the time!!! BTW, you might want to add his mother's name under "Parents" on his Memorial page. That information is clearly inscribed on the family monument.

Hi Linda, I have found some info and documents on Frank in family records and I am wondering if you would like me to scan and email them to you. I also have information on his parents and his brother, John, a third great grandparent of mine, and his other siblings. Thanks, Susan.

RE: Frank Danielson 59532833
HI, Susan. We are not related and I must have found him by accident, because we haven't done Jefferson County--yet. Sometimes when I am looking for someone in a particular county, I find someone else with the same name in another county. I would be glad to know about your other CW veterans buried in Iowa, but we aren't ready to expand further at this point. Thanks for the offer!

Eunice Clark
Greetings Kelly, I claimed your request for Mrs. Clark. I was there today and her niche that is next to Mr. Clark is not yet marked. I did take a shot of the blank niche and one of the niche with flowers for her. If you want these posted to her memorial until the marker arrives just let me know.

John A. Danielson
Hello, Susan: I claimed the three recent requests that you posted, one for a Capt. John Agustus Daneilson (Nov. 21, 1828 - Nov. 7, 1888), one for Eunice Beldon Danielson (Mar. 10, 1832 - Dec., 1865), and another for John A. Danielson (1829 - Oct. 7, 1888). Let me tell you what I found. There is a large obelisk monument for Capt. John Augustus Danielson in the Calhoun Cemetery. It is adorned with the iron GAR marker. It is my firm belief that the two John Danielsons you are seeking are one on the same. The marker indicates the exact dates for the first John. The slight error in dates for the second John are easily was just a matter of who was writing what and when. A common mistake in those days. Eunice does not seem to be buried at this cemetery, though she could be in an unmarked grave. However, the tall marker for John has an engraving on the north side of it, clearly indicating that the unknown child recorded on the 1880 census was a son named Augustus who died in 1882. The engraving for the boy indicates he was the son of John A. and Eva R. In the ground to the north of the obelisk are the graves for John and Augustus, as seen in the photos. You are free to create a memorial for Augustus, as I assume he is your relative. I have relatives of my own buried in Calhoun, a town that existed from 1855 to 1890, and then went the way of tens of thousands of small American towns that were bypassed by the railroad. They are many "Calhouns" in Harrison County, Iowa....or were, I should say.

Stanley Clark
Greeting Susan, I claimed your request for Mr. Clark at Eternal Hill Cemetery. The sun was to bright to shoot his niche this morning but I will go back this afternoon to complete that task. The niche next to his looks like his wife (?) Eunice Clark will be soon join him. The tape on the niche has 2 date written on it. 1-10-14 & 1-15-15. I have pics of this. If you want them let me know. I hope this is of some help in your search of the Clark family.
