CULP, IRWIN, PINGENAT, PINGENOT, RECROIX, URMY posted by PINGENAT Denis on Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Completing the PINGENOT-PINGENAT familytree, I'm seeking any information or documents about Francois-Joseph PINGENOT, known as Joseph Franklin PINGENOT in english and his wife Madeleine (=Madeline) RECROIX. They leaved the village of Phaffans (France) and settled in Benton County in 1879 with daughter Josephine (married 1895 in Chicago IL with Gustave Stanson), son Francois-Joseph (known as Joe, married in Vinton IA with Jennie Shaffer), son Francois-Aguste (known as August Frank) PINGENOT established in Mason City, married with Harriet Hunt, daughter Josephine-Augustine PINGENOT who died 1942 at the Iowa Hospital for Insane. Lewis Frank PINGENOT was born in Benton County in 1884, probably married three times to Jessie CULP, Ethel URMY and Ruth Esther IRWIN. I would like to know if he really was their last child.

Joseph Franklin PINGENOT apparently died in Garrison 08/10/1897. Is it possible to find his obituary? His wife Madeleine RECROIX returned to France and died in her native village of Phaffans 06/30/1900.

I would be pleased to contact their descendants to share our discoveries. I can provide information about the french and alsatian ancestry of the PINGENOT family to everyone interested. So, don't be afraid to email me at following adress:

I thought that I had located Joseph GUNN thru findagrave and Nancy Boyd GUNN A volunteer went to the Urbana grave yard, but could not locate the grave for Joseph and Nancy. I'm for someone that may have a complete directory/index for Urbana Cemetery that can verify whether Joseph and Nancy GUNN are indeed buried in Urbana Cemetery. Once the grave is located, I'm looking for a picture of the gravestone.
