Hi Kelli,

Sorry for the long delay in getting back to you on this forum. I haven't had the time to check my own requests because of the Tax Season. You see I prepare taxes for about 100 customers. Anyway I am back and I did receive an email from your parents. I enjoy talking with your father very much. He and my mother are 1st cousin you and I are second cousins. How proud I was to hear that you share the information from my book with our relatives in Iowa.

Now to answer some of your questions. Regarding the Death Certificate for David Marshall Triggs, Sr., and his wife Maria (MacIntyre) Triggs. I have search in vain for those documents. My information says they died in Lucas County, Iowa and I was back there, but to late to be able to check their vital records. When I wrote for a copy I got a clerk that just gave me the run around. In other words they didn't want to take the time to give me any information or help me in any way. As you can imagine it left me a city slicker with a real nice impression on Corn Farmers and Hog Raisers.

If you will e-mail me with some of your questions or requests I will be very happy to help you anyway I can. Oh I don't believe you will find a birth certificate for David Marshall Triggs. He was born in Hendricks County, Indiana about 1824 and they didn't have any such records then. All we can go by is the census records. Also, while I was in Chariton, Iowa, that is the county seat for Lucas County, I asked about cemetery records, but none of those people wanted to give me the time of day. I arrived at Chariton about 1:30 p.m. on Friday and it appeared to me that everyone was taking a nap, because the only souls I found were walking in a daze at the courthouse.

My email is

Would love to hear from you,

Your Cousin,

Dennis Simpson
