I know the cemetery records aren't always accurate but it's all I had to go on at the time.

Thomas A Richards - Ottumwa Cemetery
According to the copy of cemetery records I have, the birthdate listed is correct. I will gladly correct it if there is a headstone picture attached to the memorial for reference.

I think I've done everything you asked. I deleted all of mine. I am more than happy to transfer all of them to you. These individuals are not part of my tree and I only wanted to make the information available for their ancestors to find them. Let me know if I have made any errors. Again, I'm happy to have them all under your name. Just let me know.

RE: Moving Memorials

I'm not sure I want to do the transfer management to me. It depends on how many people you are talking about? That plays a part in whether I have the time to look at all of them to "pick and choose" who should stay and who should be deleted. You also didn't say which Mary you want moved to the New Maple Grove Cemetery?

RE: Mathew Family
Dear Chuck,

I received your message regarding the Port William cemetery. You are correct -- the situation is a mess! It takes so much time and effort to get the photos and the headstones posted in the first place, nobody would duplicate an effort. I spent many, many, many days at that cemetery writing down the info and then taking the photos and posting them to Findagrave. Then I stumbled upon a search and discovered the Port William cemetery (which I believed to be one cemetery) is actually considered to be two separate cemeteries. I became so discouraged with the entire project and I quit going back to Port William. I don't have any relatives there, I just wanted to help other people find their ancestors. I'm willing to transfer anyone that I have posted and I am willing to delete any that are now duplicates. Just let me know which ones are duplicates.

RE: Memorial Xfers
It appears that most in the cemetery are relitives of mine, I just need to sort through the names and dates to be sure. So, I'm not in a big hurry for you to take pictures yet. I was so excited, I may have jumped the gun so to speak. I might want some more pictures if that is possible. I know the grave stones maybe un-readable because of age. What ever you can do will be fine. Just knowing where it is, is a blessing.

With kind regards,

Buz Johnson

Port William Cemetery???
Your are absolutely right about Port Williams Cemetery. It is actually Maple Grove Cemetery. I found her gravestone there.

Thanks. I have deleted that record.

No problem... glad to be able to help. I know that even if I don't get a response people are thankful or they wouldn't ask for the photo :-)

Yes I noticed the added info on the pics. Thanks a lot! I'm not finding a James Mangan, but if he's burried in the same cemetery, he'll show up sometime. William was Timothy's son. Thanks!!
