Howard-Winneshiek Genealogy Society is awarded grant; box made to preserve & display Beadle family Bible
The Howard-Winneshiek Genealogy Society, with the help of a City of Cresco Travel and Tourism grant, had a box made to preserve and display the Beadle family Bible. The Bible, on extended loan, was given to the Genealogy Society and the Cresco Public Library by Judge John McKay, great-great grandson of Augustus and Eliza Beadle, founder of Cresco, last summer during the town's Sesquicentennial celebration. The Bible, published in Philadelphia in 1815, contains the marriage records of Augustus' parents Daniel and Clara (Powers) Beadle and the birth records of Augustus and his brother John Henry. Pictured from left: Genealogy Society members Jan Strike, Jan Wearda, Don Wearda, Dave Matt, whose business Wildflower Art & Frame furnished the box, Cresco Public Library Director Carmen Buss, and Genealogy Society member Judy Strike.
