|Bio and Links|
I have been working on my family's history for several years. Being retired does have it's benefits. I live in Southern California, but I am from Sigourney, Iowa, and most of my family comes from Keokuk, Van Buren, and Wapello counties. My interest is mostly in Elsensohn, Marshall, Pool, and Salter on my dad's side, and Ruby, Reinier, Brittain, and Larimore on my mom's. I would encourage anyone starting out to talk to those older generations as soon as you can. I am also working on my husband's side of the family, mostly Valgren, Kardash, and Burtness. The amazing thing was I discovered my son was a direct descendant of George Soule who came over on the Mayflower. After a year of work, he is now officially in the Mayflower Society.|

Elmhurst has no record of her burial. Do you have proof?

We went to fulfill your request but Edna is not listed on the wall. Just her husband Harry Samuel Phillips is listed. I see someone has already posted a photo for Harry Samuel Phillips also.

GGGrandpa Charles Edward Ruby (60385138)

I'll bet we are related. Robert, Charles & George are all from Ollie. Robert is buried in Ottumwa, Charles is buried in Ollie, and George is buried in Rock Creek.
I would LOVE to be able to get the obits of Charles & wife Phoebe Keasling and George & wife Tacy Riley.
Anything connect with you? If you tell me John's birthdate and deathdate..... I bet we will find a link between the families!!

No, I saw his wife's name (Olia) on the same pillar as her father's (Adolf), but Ole's gravestone wasn't around there and I couldn't find it elsewhere in the cemetery either.

|John Quiring||RE: Ernst Matthes|
Hi. I posted a photo of Ernst and Irene's stone. (The sun was the wrong direction to get the best lighting.) Based on the stone I changed Ernst's birth date. An edit sent to me had given his birth in Sept of 1900. JQ

I transferred Maude to you.
