Tammy, I have an obituary for Edwin, from the Monroe Co. News, 20 Jan 1941. States that Edwin was 80 years old when he died at Mr. Pleasant hospital. Born Eddyville, mar. Mary Davis in 1891. He had worked in mines at Fredric, Avery and Rexfield prior to moving to Albia. Was survived by wife, five daughters: Mrs. Pearl Myers, Mrs. Charles Anderson, Mrs. Earl Baty, Mrs. Lowell Stokes and Miss Phyllis DeLashmutt, all of Albia; a son, Harry, of Burlington, 21 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren. That's paraphrased a bit, but the gist of the obit. Hope this helps you-- I would be interested to know his father's name? Believe he would have been a brother of Van DeLashmutt, whom I am working on.
