1898 MEMOIR OF 50th ANIVERSARY OF IRA G AND ANN E RHODES  -  Remarkable little documentation of festivities honoring the 50th anniversary of Ira RHODES and Ann BOTTS at the old family home in Brighton, IA, in 1898.  Biography of each child, a history of the marriage and family, the written accounts of the toasts and speeches given at the celebration and information of other activities of the family.  First five pages are photocopies, but the rest of the booklet is original, string bound volume.  Included are photocopy pictures of  Ira and Ann.

These images were scanned to .pdf and require Adobe Reader to view.  Reader is available for free from  The images were digitally enhanced for the best possible quality.  Because we try to preserve the books and not "break them down" during the scanning process, some of the pages may be a bit crooked. We scan using grey scale, which makes the file a bit larger, but helps to keep the text crisp.  There may be an off-white background, depending on the quality of the original.  Sometimes there may also be a "halo" shadow from the scan. Some of our original books were in poor condition, but if the original is readable, the CD image will be also. These are such great resources, a few blemishes should be acceptable for such old, rare books.
