Testimonial from CeCe Moore - Genetic Genealogist - I want to publicly thank Sandra Folkes Bengtson, Fremont County, Iowa research extraordinaire, for finding the death notice of my second great grandmother, Mary Hewitt Proctor, from 1892. It means so much to me. The notice confirmed the family oral history surrounding her death and many dates passed down in my family that turned out to be exactly correct, but had no documents to substantiate them. The notice also added new information like the exact location that she was born in New York and when she moved to Gallatin, Illinois and Sidney, Iowa. Thank you so much, Sandra!
