Mystery Monday: Unidentified photo from Southern Iowa

I recently came into a trove of family papers & photos.  Unfortunately, I don't have a clue how many of these people are related, or if they are just people this elderly, childless couple knew throughout their lives.  I will be posting all the unknown connections with the label "Abbott-Cruchelow Papers".

This is a photo taken in Omaha, Nebraska at Walgren Studios. The picture is somehow related to the Milburn, Morlan, Abbott, or Cruchelow families of Appanoose, Wayne, and Monroe Counties in Iowa. Cute baby!

Sunday’s Obituary- Emil C Long; Appanoose County, Iowa

I recently came into a trove of family papers & photos.  Unfortunately, I don't have a clue how many of these people are related, or if they are just people this elderly, childless couple knew throughout their lives.  I will be posting all the unknown connections with the label "Abbott-Cruchelow Papers".

Today's entry is the text of the Memorial Service for Emil C. Long, dated 30th of June 1986.  Earl was born 27 December 1902, married Ava Elizabeth Linch 16 April, 1922 and died the 28th of June 1986.

Jones Family Reunion: Appanoose and Wayne Counties, Iowa

Another great family who hold annual family reunions (to which I've never been invited hint hint) are the Jones Family Reunions.

These are newspaper clippings from the Iowegian.  Check back as I will keep adding more announcements of the reunions through the years as I find them.  Reunion articles have been very helpful in identifying family and their location.

(Appanoose County, Iowa is very fortunate; they have published the Iowegian on line for free!  The link is: http://centerville.advantage-preservation.com/search/site )

John Davis and Ratha Ann Adams Family Reunions

How fortunate for the descendants of John William Davis and Ratha Adams that their families have cared enough to publish their history and continue to hold reunions.  My own connection to this family is thru William Morlan (1821-1878), my great-great-grandfather.  William was the great-grandfather to Ratha; Ratha's grandmother was Mary Abigail Morlan (1842-1880).  By the way,  I've never been invited to any of the reunions hint hint.  :-)  Reunion articles have been very helpful in identifying family and their location.

Here is a family history that appeared in the Centerville (Iowa) Iowegian followed by all the announcements I have found regarding the reunions.  (As I continue to find more announcements, this will grow).
