Update to Ira Franklin Calkins
I submitted a request to update Ira Franklin Calkins' record a few weeks ago. He's buried in Graceland Cemetery in Hamilton County, Iowa - memorial ID 57116864. I added his parents, his nickname, and his wife. As 1 of 9 children he's the only one left to be connected to his family. Can you please make the update and/or give contributor 46787249 permission to make changes to his record?

Hi Cathy, I have finally gotten around to doing some serious looking for Purkapile relatives and found James M. Purkapile on find a grave. He only has Edwin listed as one of his children. My biological dad was Carl E. Purkapile and his sister was Maxine L. Purkapile born in Des Moines, IA. I would love to visit with you sometime and find out any family history as I have never known anything about the Purkapile name. My email is ekrrn@yahoo.com. Thank-you.

Hello Cathy,

I'm looking for J.A. Bartels who is the husband of Magdalena Bartels. Do you know if he is buried along side Magdalena? They are my great great grand parents. I'm also looking for a grave stone photo of Franklin Bartels who is my great grandfather (son of J A and Magdalena Bartels and who died in 1887.

Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate that you have given of your time to help connect people with their ancestors. Your dedication is so appreciated, especially for people like me who do not have first-hand information.

Warm regards,
Jackie

Re: William Studley
William Studley is buried in Mineral Cemetery. He is my great-great-great grandfather. His wife Eunice Timberman Studley is buried there also, but I do not find a record of her grave. Do you have any information on her? Thank you.

McCalla/Balsley/Olmstead Famiilies in Graceland.
Cathy, I am a grandson of Delilah Balsley McCalla, daughter of David and Elizabeth Balsley.I am going to make a visit to Webster City, within the next two weeks, on my way to South Dakota. I will want to spend a good portion of my day, checking out the family members buried there. IF time permits I noticed you have special memorials of Civil War Veterans buried at Graceland. I am a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and very active in restoring, cleaning and straightening markers, in the Western Suburbs of Chicago. Do you have, or can you tell be how to obtain a map of Graceland, and a contact name at the cemetery, in case I can do some cleaning.

Hi Cathy,
I submitted a couple of edits to you for this lady (who is my great aunt) by using the edit button on her memorial page. I was wondering if that is the best way of letting you know about improvements that should be made to link her to family and other edits. Thank you for all you have done to create so many memorials and for your help.

Richard Searles
Olson in Homer cemetery
Hi Cathy;

What can you tell me about the Carrie Olson you have listed in Homer cemetery? The reason I ask is that based on her obituary in the Dayton paper and other family ancestry, we believe tis is the first wife of my wife's great grandfather's brother, Ole G Olson. This would mean she was born Anne Karine Thime in 1852 in Stavanger, Norway, Married to Ole Gabriel Olson & emigrated to Iowa in about 1881. Her husband remarried in 1884 and retired to Chicago. Ole died in Chicago on 31-Mar-1919, and was shipped to Iowa for burial, most likely with his first wife Anne who went by Carrie. Together Ole & Carrie had two sons, Halvor and Ingebret. We believe (but have no solid proof) that Ingebret died young and would likely be buried with his mother. What sources can you recommend to find other Olsons buried in this cemetery?

Thank You .... Rick & Karin (Olson) Searles

RE: Columbia Beem
Hi Cathy!

George was a twin; I was never told that the other survived birth nor if it was a girl or boy. My Mom lead me to believe that the baby died before birth. I do know that Columbia is not their child; just George and John are. If you find any information please let me know. Thank you so much!

Columbia Beem
Hi Cathy!

Columbia Beem is not the child of Joseph Oliver and Sarah Rose (Rooker) Beem. Joe and Sarah are my great grandparents and they had only two boys: George Henry and John Harold. George never married and had no children. John had two children Robert Harry Beem and my mother, Helen (Beem) Scarborough. George was a twin (born in 1894) and the other twin died - I have no knowledge if the twin was named or buried. Columbia is not that child though.

Thanks,
Cook Olson

I have been asked to link family members for my Great Aunt Ruth. If not related could you transfer her memorial to me. I can always transfer it back. We called her Aunt Susie.
