      3. 1920 Soundex, IA, Marshall Co, Marshalltown, 708 1/2 E Main, ED 161, Sht 13.
      4. GenForum posting 13 May 2003 by Carol Sorden Watson (cwatson@sisna.com) requested death date, place & burial site for Martha Adella WEST Rickey, wife of Byron Rickey.
      5. WPA Grave Records, Riverside Cem, Marshalltown, Marshall Co, IA.
      6. California Death Index, Kings Co #1425, 43-62812, vol F, p 11731. Wf of B.L. RICKEY.
      7. Undated Obituary for ADELLA RICKEY sent by AVIS BROWN another cousin and active member of RFA)), 2912 Charlotte Ct #94, Ames, IA 50014, said: "Prayer services for ADELLA, a former resident of this county (Marshall Co, IA), who died at "Long Beach, CA", were held at Pursel Funeral Home with Rev P. G. Dennis in charge. Burial was at Riverside Cemetery,(Marshalltown, IA). Relatives attending were: Mrs GEORGE GIFFORD & Mrs RAY GIFFORD & son FRANK GIFFORD of Friend, NE; Mr & Mrs WALTER HOOVER of LeGrand, IA; Mrs RAY LEWIS of Eldora, IA; and Mr & Mrs R. CLAY of Albion, IA.".
      Adella death date is 15 Sep 1943. CA death records show Kings County, whose largest town of Visalia is about 200 miles north of Long Beach??? Probably best to query Pursel Funeral Home to straighten that one out.
