  1. My father, Frank “Dale” Fessler, left personal pics of Fort Dodge cc. 1910 plus.
    They are not professional, but taken by a boy who probably had his first camera.
    Dale was the oldest of 3 sons of Otto “Ed” and Ethel Andres Fessler. Dale was raised in Fort Dodge and left in 1917 to join the Navy. His mother had died in her 30’s. His brothers were Harold and Donald Fessler.
    Would the Society like the pictures. I would gladly send them if they are wanted and just not considered more junk. Please let me know.

    • I just saw this message. Yes, we will take those pictures.
      Please send them to : Webster County Genealogical Society, 424 Central Avenue, Room 134, Fort Dodge, Iowa 50501

  2. To Susan Olsen
    I couldn’t get my email to go in so I went here to write to you. I am working on the East Ullensvang Cem in Thor Iowa. I think the people are Wayne Kelly I didn’t look at it again. Their names are under the pictures there is another man who has his name on some of them also. If you click in a name like Opehim then their name should be under the picture of the stone. They did a wonder ful job of taking pictures etc. I click on their names then I could see what they said about them and what counties they want to give info on. Thank you Shirley

  3. I recently ran across an obit from Webster County that mentioned an Olson Cemetery in Webster City, Iowa. I have been unable to find other mention of it. Does anyone know anything about this cemetery?

    • I have not heard of that one. Webster County and Webster City, Iowa are 2 different places. Whose obit are you looking at?

    Dear Susan Olson,
    I spoke with you by phone concerning my desire to find information about my father’s side of the family, Greyson, my father, grew up in Fort Dodge, IA and his father and mother’s names were Fred and Frances(nee-Babbitt) Becker. My great grandfather was one of the founders of the Becker Florists. His name might have been Johanness and his wife’s name was Louisa (Siegel?) Becker. I would like to go back as far as we can. Let’s do 4 hour increments. Thank you, Frances
