Submitter: Nancy Hastie ABBOTT/PACE Families
Hello Paul,
I am on your Page Co. webpage and I am looking for some of the same names as you are. I think there was a cross over between Page, Taylor counties, etc.
I'm looking for the family of John Abbott and wife Cora Pace. They had two children living in 1969 when Cora died - Kenneth (of Springfield, MO) and Dorothy who married Harry Salmon (of Clarinda in 1969). Do you know anything about Kenneth or Dorothy?
I am interested in Burnhams (who are buried in Memory Cemetery) also. I have Asa and wife Jane Hastie Burnham. Their daughter Jennie/Jane married Daniel E. Pace.

Date: 14 Nov 2002 8:30:32 PM Pacific Standard Time I have some information relating to #11 - Reuben Sanford, Jr. ABBOTT
You show him married to Miss Hanna LONG b. 25 Jun 1848, IN, daughter of Andrew BROADSTONE and Sarah LONG.
A Reuben LONG married Hannah BROADSTONE b 25 Jun 1848 IN, daugher of Andrew BROADSTONE and Sarah Ann Williams. The marriage was 1 May 1864, Webster Co, Iowa. I show four children for Reuben and Hannah: Lemel C., d bef. 1929; Andrrew Leslie, d bef 1929; Edith (in Clarinda, IA, 1929) and Fleet (in St. Cloud, MN in 1929). Hannah d 11 Jan 1929, Clarinda, IA;
this #1 Reuben apparently died prior to 1918, because I show she married Reuben S. ABBOTT in 1918 (she must have REALLY liked that name!!
Andrew BROADSTONE is my gr-gr-gr-grandfather (I think I have the right number of Greats!! I am working on another family history right now and don't have that fact right at hand). Andrew and his wife, Sarah Ann, are indeed buried in Clarinda, IA-- I have photos of their headstones which we took.
This is probably too distant to your research to be much help, but the names are too much the same not to be the same.

Submitter: burl.abraham ABRAHAM/MORGAN
Just looking through early marriages for Page county Iowa. I noticed Sara P. Abraham and Abner Morgan 11 Dec. 1858. Could this name possibly be Munger instead of Morgan? The only reason I state this is because of Sara's father's family Bible record of the marriage which appears to read Munger. Let me know? Thanks

Darcy, I have only one Akin/Aiken connection, and that is to the Beech Aiken/Akin who married Gertrude Vliet, my great-grandfather's sister's child. Beech's parents, according to his obit. were John Akin and Susan (unknown) Since Beech was born in 1867, it appears that his father, John, could easily have been a brother or cousin to your Akin family, but I have no documents.
I have one appearance of "Lewis Akin" in my genealogy, and that was from the affidavit he signed on behalf of a pension for Jacob Spunaugle, bro. of my Great-Grandfather. Here's what I know of him:
On July 13, 1889, Jacob Spunaugle was living in Shenandoah, Iowa, as he made his original declaration for an Invalid pension. He also stated that he joined the engineers under Capt. Patton, in December of 1861. His claim states that he was building bridges and working in water in August of 1862 near Jackson, Tennessee, and contracted a "severe cold" from which he did not fully recover. He was not treated in any military or other hospitals, according to his declaration. He states that he has lived in "Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa" since his discharge. This pension ($8 per month) was awarded on April 15, 1889. Walter W. Hill (son of Joseph E. Hill, his brother-in-law) and Lewis Akin (one suspects he is related to the husband (Beech Aiken) of Gertrude Vliet, his niece) attested to his disability. In 1905, another application managed to have the pension increased to $10 per month.
I don't think that is much help, but I believe it is probable that there was some family connection with Lewis Akin, simply because other affidavits, both in 1889 and later, also came from family members such as Mary Vliet, his sister, and Elias Meads who was probably related to his brother Daniel's wife, Lucinda Meads.
My suggestion is that you contact Pat O'Dell, the author of the Taylor and Page County Newspaper index to see if she can research this for you. She may charge a fee, but it would be less than making the trip to Clarinda, Iowa!

Elaine-Thanks you so much for your prompt and informative reply. I made a trip to Clarinda last summer and visited the Nodaway Museum but unfortunately could only spend an hour or so. That is where I confirmed that Lewis was the sheriff. I also have in my records that Beech's dad John was probably married to Susan (or Sophia) Miller, daughter or John Miller and Mary Loy. Mary Loy is the daughter of William Loy and Duly HILL. Lewis Akin had a son named John, don't know if it is the same John-father of Beech-. If you stumble on anything else, please let me know. And again, thanks for your reply.
