New Website to search for Geneology of Lovilia Residents from Old Lovilia Press Clippings

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Go to:

You can search by year or by first initial of a person’s last name. Included are births, marriages, and obituaries.

I enjoyed searching for fun even though I am not working on family history at this time.

We can thank Stephen Stewart for creating this site.  I am sure it took a great deal of time and talent and devotion to bring it to reality.  If you have questions, you may reach him at this email address:

Morgan Beary’s Car Damaged by Collision with a Deer

Saturday evening when leaving Lovilia to return to Des Moines, he encountered deer crossing Hwy 5 and removed his foot from the accelerator but before he could slow down a large deer crossed the road and crashed with the car.  Severely injured but still alive the police put the animal down.  A tow truck was summoned and removed the car from the highway.  Morgan was not injured but the air bag did deploy.  Several good samaritans stopped to provide assistance which Morgan appreciated.  He was not injured except for light bruising from impact from the air bag.
