Betzer, Aaron R.18361900Alley N Aaron Rowe Betzer is the full name and a preponderance of evidence from census records, his Civil War military records, and family records indicate that he was born in "1838," not 1836 as the record suggests. He was in fact, born 17 June 1838, in Ross County, Ohio, and died 2 Dec 1900, in Stanwood, Cedar, Iowa. The tombstone is somewhat weathered but if you look at it very carefully as we did, it's possible to see that it's probably 1838. His wife is Mary Betzer, below. David & Elisa Betzer

Byerly, Firena Alspaugh18411861Old 69 Duane & Joni Byerly Mogstad writes, "When we were in Anamosa a few years ago, we found in the Forest Hill Cemetery woman we believe to have been married to Adam Byerly in the 1860 census. Her name was Firena Alspaugh b. 1841/d. 1861. The date on the stone was weathered but the Byerly name was bright and legible. She was a Byerly buried in the Alspaugh family plot. If I recall correctly the date and Firena was weathered and hard to read easily. It could be the same one as Finena Alspaugh b. 1931/d. 1861. I have a WPA list that I think had her life span as 20 years." Photo: tjmcc
(Note: Firena appears in the 1850 US Census as "Firena Alspach, age 9, born Ohio, daughter of Samuel and Solma Alspach. RH)
