Volunteer Notes:

Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
Moses Sweet was one of the most energetic founders of Linn Grove, Iowa. He arrived in 1866 from New York and being an experienced miller realized the potential of water power from the Little Sioux River. He bought property and built a lumber mill that provided hardwood frame wood for the coming settlers for years. Later he add flour grinding to his mill.
From Buena Vista County History Chapter 5

The last dated entry into this Bible is Minnie Mae’s death in 1963. The last sibling to pass was Fred Crawford who died in 1965. It is possible the later entries were added by Fred or his wife Stella who passed in 1970. Their daughter, Fleata, is the only grandchild of Edwin and Alice. She married Douglas Loukota and had two sons, Douglas Crawford and Robert William.
