John W. Flater/Anna Rebecca - MD/IN/IA

Posted: 19 Aug 2004 2:17PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: FLATER, RICHARDS, GRIGGS, BEGGS, SHAFFER
I found some Flater families on the Muscatine and Cedar Co IA census records I'm trying to connect to other lines--does anyone know anything about this group? They turn up living right in the midst of where my Richard Richards/Isabel Flater couple had resided in Goshen Twp Muscatine Co and I'm wondering if/how they are related to Isabel.

If they're yours, you even get SOURCES so I'd appreciate it if you'd tell me who they connect to:

Notes for KATIE LEE FLATER:
Miss Katie Lee Flater, second daughter of J. W. Flater, of Atalissa, Iowa, was born April 18, 1873, near West Liberty, Iowa, and departed this life at the Homeopathic hospital at Iowa City, Ia., Feb. 8, 1910, at 8 o'clock Tuesday evening where she has been since the middle of October. Her father and sister, Florence, were at her bedside when she passed away. Her death was caused by a complication of diseases. She was preceded in death by her mother and brother Frank. Those who are left to mourn her death are her father, two sisters, Mollie at home and Mrs. Florence Griggs, and two brothers, Granville and Guy, besides a host of friends. Funeral services were held Thursday, Feb. 10, at 1 o'clock from the Cedar Valley M. E. church conducted by the pastor. The song services were rendered by Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Monroe, Mrs. Edgar Hildebrand and Miss Harriet Arnold of Cedar Valley and Miss Jennie Hindricks and John Stephens, of Nichols. The floral offerings were many and beautiful, mute expressions of high regard in which she was held. The pall bearers were Fred Swain, Ed Hendriks, Philip Spilger, Harry Clark, Archie Staley and Glenn Thompson, former pupils of her home school where she taught for six years. She was reared to young womanhood in this vicinity and was loved by all who knew her. She was a devout member of the M. E. church since her girlhood. Interment was made at Oakdale cemetery at West Liberty.

Note WPA Burial Records indicate she is buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in West Liberty, not Oakdale.
