Friday's Face from the Past: Unknown, Appanoose County, Iowa

Over the next several weeks, maybe months, I'll be highlighting some of the pictures I recently found of my grandparents' families from Appanoose County, Iowa.  I hope this will be a place the pictures can be found.

The only clue on this photo is the emblem on the left indicating this young man was a graduate of the class of 1943 from Centerville High School, Centerville, Appanoose County, Iowa.

Funeral Card Friday: Loy Otis McMurry, Wayne County, Iowa

Loy Otis McMurry was born the 28th of May 1905 and passed away the 21st of March 1971.  Interment was in the Promise City Cemetery, Wayne County, Iowa.  This was found in a scrapbook of family obituaries, tho I do not know at this time how he is related.

Morlan Family Reunions

I was trying to find a good place to capture and save all the articles about various Morlan family reunions in Appanoose and Wayne Counties in Iowa, so for now they will be added below.

(I wonder why my grandma, Nellie Morlan Milburn, never got invited?)

Military Monday: Charles Joseph Abbott

Charles Joseph Abbott, Sonorman, Second Class is the focus of today's Military Monday. "Charlie Joe" was honorably discharged from the U. S. Naval Receiving Station, Seattle, Washington on the 28th day of November 1946.  I imagine that was quite a day of Thanksgiving for my cousin, Chuck, as well as his parents!
