Female Ancestor Friday Etta Anna Gertrude Zion My great grand aunt

Friday is a perfect time to spend some time with a female ancestor. 
Today I am revisiting my great grand aunt Etta Zion

When Etta Anna Gertrude Zion was born on September 21, 1868, in Decatur City, Iowa, her father, John, was 36 and her mother, Mary Cassell , was 33. 

She married Maley Percy on August 20, 1890, in Lamoni, Iowa. 

She died on December 31, 1890, in Iowa, at the age of 22, and was buried in Lillie, Louisiana.  

I find it very sad that she passed away after being married just over two months.  

The picture I have of her has her husband cut away. Not sure what that means.  

She is buried in Lillie Cemetery in Decatur Iowa  under the name of Zion. 

 As of now I have no new information about her life or death.

Researching Cheuvront Family Line ~ Aaron Cheuvront and the Civil War

 This month I have decided to concentrate on my Cheuvront family line. The family line began in America with Joseph Cheuvront and the last Cheuvront in my family line was my second great grandmother Alta Cheuvront who married John Coleman in 1866.
 It is believed that Aaron was married three times with Amanda Matilda Grant being wife number 1, Sarah Richards wife number two and that he married for the third time to Matilda Bolin.
In researching I have found that Aaron Charles  fought in the Civil War on the Union side . He was residing in West Virginia and was in the 11th Regiment, West Virginia Infantry Company K and was a private during his time in the military.
Tonight I found at http://www.civilwararchive.com/unionwv.htm,  http://www.wvcivilwar.com/union-regiments/11th-west-virginia-infantry/
Information on the 11th Regiment Infantry the following..
In researching I have found that Aaron Charles  fought in the Civil War on the Union side . He was residing in West Virginia and was in the 11th Regiment, West Virginia Infantry Company K and was a private during his time in the military.
What I am still searching for is when he enlisted and when he was mustered out. These records can be found at the National Archives if I do not find them on the Internet.

I now know of three ancestors who fought in the civil war. Besides Aaron Cheuvront  my great great grandfather John Lockwood and John's brother Frederick Lockwood fought on the union side. Both signed up with Wisconsin Calvary and served about one year.

On or About This Day Alta Angeline Cheuvront Was Married to John Henry Coleman 1866

Alta Angeline Cheuvront married John Henry Coleman on the 01st of July 1866 in Taylor Loup, Nebraska.
Alta is one of my great great grandmother on my father's side. She was born 16th of June 1839 Knox Ohio to Lemuel and Mary A ( Rouse) Cheuvront.  She passed away on the 28th of September 1937 in Taylor Loup, Nebraska.
Pictured is Alta in the upper right hand corner with her parents, brother and sister.

I am what is known as a mutt. My ancestors came from several areas in Europe. England, Ireland, France, Germany and Scotland.
One of the firsts was the Day line from England, the Zion line from Germany and Cheauvront line from France.

Daniel Day 14th Nov 1746 to 1830
Joseph Cheuvront  2nd  Feb 1757 to 25 Mar 1832
John Rouse 9th of  Dec 1741 to 19th Jan 1834 Pension Files found

There were probably other family members who fought in this war and I will be busy searching for their information.

Thanks for stopping by , hope to find the time to spend more time here sharing some of my family information. Grace
