In going through the “Memory Books” of my mother-in-law, Verla Malcom, I found some items of possible interest to users of this Taylor County, Iowa site. I am copying the information from these books in no specific date order, just as I come across the item on a page. The following is from “Book One”- the first book I came across. The others are in boxes and I will copy the information from them as I get to them later. If you have any questions, or would like a copy of the item (they are PASTED into the books), please email me at the following address with the ‘book’ number.

Books include: Funeral or Memory Leaflets (listed below), Anniversary, wedding, birthday mementos and/or news articles. The principal names or items on these are found at the end of this list.
