I've been working on Sarah's narrative on Google Docs and was surprised to notice my severe lack of evidence about her birthplace. So, I hunted down some land records to check to verify where the family was living. Hopefully this will coincide with her death certificate, but if it doesn't I'll need to make a note of that.
Also need to find out more about the "Hale School" that one gal emailed me about a while ago. I don't think I ever heard more about it. Should also look into any historical societies in Wapello and Davis to see what I can dig up on schools, homesteads, organizations, etc.
Also found a nice Iowa map from 1854 that has Green on it, south of Ottumwa, possibly on the railroad track so I should get a more detailed rail map of this area. Definitely need to do some locational/historical research of the area.
