Places [12 April 2011]

Hello,

Welcome back! I'm one of the volunteer administrators and just wanted to drop a note because I deleted a couple pages you created and wanted to let you know why. I deleted the page for Thomas RestHaven because we don't maintain pages for institutions - cemeteries are great though; I see you've also created a page for the Coon Rapids Cemetery, thanks! The Coon Rapids and Carroll Co. pages were duplicates of existing pages - the standardized format for place names omits any word for county, and you can find the existing pages at Place:Carroll, Iowa, United States and Place:Coon Rapids, Carroll, Iowa, United States. Thanks for your work and if you have any questions, let me know.--Amelia 20:14, 12 April 2011 (EDT)


Thanks! I knew you would clean up my work. Just noticed some things that were missing and needed some attention. Again, Thanks... and, I appreciate the note! Dr. Bill  ;-)--Dr. Bill 20:45, 12 April 2011 (EDT)


Where did Union Township Cemetery page go? I had a link to Interments.... with GPS location, etc. Mom and Dad are buried there... my gravestone is there, as well. It is also at Find A Grave...--Dr. Bill 20:53, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

I don't see that you created or edited a cemetery page, but the township page is here (renamed to omit "Township").--Amelia 21:08, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

Lloyd Fleener [26 October 2012]

I came across your entry for Lloyd, b.1872, and wondered whether this could be the same Lloyd in my records. I don't want to post to your record if yours is a different person.

My Lloyd B. Fleener was born in Abingdon, Jefferson, Iowa in 1892 to George H and Elizabeth Majors Fleener. In 1900 they are living a couple miles north in Hedrick, Keokuk Co., IA where his father was managing a hotel and Lloyd is 8 years. His sisters Blanche, Mattie, and Mary, were age 10, 6 and 4 respectively. In 1910 I found the same family in Galesburg, Knox, IL. Lloyd is indexed on Ancestry.com there as Lowd, age 18, from a very messy census form. I have Lloyd marrying "Florence" est 1925 and had a son, Jack, b. abt Jan 1927 per a 1930 Rockford, IL census.

George Henry Fleener is son to John D. and Sarah Downey Fleener, my 2nd gg parents.

-John Fleener--Jofle 16:16, 25 October 2012 (EDT)


This appears to be the same Lloyd Fleener, little doubt. On my side, he married the Florence Weise, in my family line, and they had a son Jack. Feel free to use this profile and update, link, tie to your family as your best records show. This is what the wiki is all about - collaboration. Thanks for the note. Wonderful. Best wishes!  ;-)--Dr. Bill 21:42, 25 October 2012 (EDT)

Caswell Robert Harris [9 June 2015]

Hey did you write the information about Caswell Robert Harris Born abt 1854? I have him born in NC instead of IN. I am a relative of his and I want to know more about him. Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you, Brad--Bt1975 22:07, 9 June 2015 (UTC)


Came from a family researcher, probably 20 years ago, before email and Internet... here is my note, in total:

Caswell was the Black Sheep of the Family. Family stories say he was always ready to fight. His brother John bite off part of his earlobe in a fight and I understand Caswell took him to court. At anyrate after the death of Levina, Caswell (they called him Bob) got into a fight with a man and killed him. There are several stories about the event..some say he left his 2 children in his wagon at the train station. There was a trial and the death was ruled self-defense, but he never knew the verdict. Dad had me looking in Indiana when I lived there for him ( Tipton Co.). Other tell me there was a letter to the Harris boys from his widow (2nd wife) asking some of them to come to TX to run a 500 ac. cotton ranch in exchange for the land after her death. There is more but I'll send you that at a later date. Jimmy Sue Rogers (direct line of John Henry and Eliza Jane) say there was a man who lived near them who was Caswell Harris(changed his name). His family said "no way".--Dr. Bill 22:46, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
