Pearl Van Buskirk
Unfortunately, my parents moved from Ottumwa when I was about age 5. Therefore I only know Goldie's siblings by family records and research. I know of Pearl through that. I admired them in raising the young man that became mayor of Ottumwa.

Emma Forsyth - Westview Cemetery
Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in giving me permission to use my memorial for Emma that was created after yours was. I'm very grateful, and I'm adding to it the fact that the first, original one was created by you on 2/28/14.
You're the best, Mary! 🍀

John Harness - 103423551
Hi there - Don't want you to be confused. I just sent you three updates (written information) for you for John Harness. This wasn't a mistake - I actually sent three different things, so I wanted you to know that so you open all three e-mails : ) After reading them, please let me know what you would like me to do with my memorial I just added for John Harness - 132484277. If mine is actually a duplicate, I'll be happy to delete mine after you adjust the birth year for your John (if we think we have the same person : ) Thanks for your help!

Ms. Irish Eyes,

I cannot thank you enough for locating and adding Rebecca and Samuel's information to Find A Grave. I have been trying to figure out their names for years. My father was an only child and relatives from his side of the family are few and far between.

You are a God-send.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I have hit a brick wall in searching my ancestors. I believe I have traced my great-great-great grandmother to the Chillicothe Cemetery. However, Find A Grave does not list her. Would you have any idea how I could check? I am hoping my great-great-great grandfather is there, but I don't even know his name. Thank you in advance. Mindy

I was wondering if you could sign Kenneth Gillette McCarty over to me? He was my uncle and I want to link him to his father and sisters.

I am asking permission to copy the story of Joseph Cody Bunk to my family tree. He would be my 2nd cousin once removed.
Thank you for this consideration,

Mary Cresswell
I requested a headstone photo on Mary Cresswell ( but it came back as the cemetery has no record of her. I noticed you had submitted the original information and wondered if you knew anything more about how to find her or if she is at the cemetery listed?
Thank you!
