While I appreciate the information provided by the death certificate that you posted on this memorial, Find-a-grave guidelines suggests that death certificates not be posted on memorials. I don't really like the looks of them on memorials; however, I'm more than willing to post a link to them. Would you be willing to take the death certificate off the memorial? I've given you credit for the information in the bio section.

Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Isolin Rupp
I called Melba Searles in Oregon.

Ada & her first husband Francis Searles were her grandparents. Her dad was Ward Searles. He was the only child in this marraige.

Then Ada remarried William Rupp & had 3 children, Katheryn, Claude, & Helen.

This is the first I have seen this Isolin Rupp. I checked my other family trees I share with folks from & not a one had her listed. You could call the Maxwell cemetery at 515-387-8655 & see what they know.

Keep me posted, I would like to know what you find out.

Rupp Family
Are you related to them? I did your edit for Ada.

I was not aware that they had a daughter Isolin.

Ada was my great grandpa's sister.Any information you can give me on the family would be great.

Mary McCracken Ferry edit
I saw your edit request for my memorial for Mary McCracken Ferry to add in "M." for the middle initial. Are you sure that the "M." you want added is for a middle name and not in reference to her maiden name "McCracken" ? Her inscription doesn't have a middle initial, but often when there is it is really for the maiden name and not for a middle name. If you really do think that she had a middle name that started with "M", I'll be glad to accept your edit, but just wanting to make sure that this edit change is correct.

Colby Wiggins
I am a grand-niece of Colby wiggins and I'm wondering a couple of things.

How did you determine who his siblings and parents were?
Do you have any advice for locating web searches for Railroad records?

I have done research for our branch of the Wiggins family and, because he left the state of Texas under mysterious circumstances, there is not much info available.

I think she is on that headstone.
The plots are adjacent.
You can add that photo to her memorial.

Richard, thank you so much for your information on how to take care of a memorial. I will get to working on adding my father's information since he is not on here. I just need to find a photo of his headstone. He is buried in California. Anyway, All your contributions are welcomed and appreciated. I only hope I can do a small portion of what you have done.

Hey Richard,
I finally got around to writing an obit for my eldest brother. I think this has been churning in my brain my entire lifetime. And my twin brother and I only knows this story. Feels good to finally have this done.

John and Ulricka Nelson memorial updates
I've just updated my memorials for John and Ulricka Nelson with more family, name, and obituary information. A son of theirs, C. Columbus Nelson, is also buried in the same cemetery and I've sent an edit request to have him linked to his parents (his memorial is managed by another contributor).

I did accept your location edits for John Nelson you sent to me, but after looking at his death record and obituary information I've reverted his DOD location to be only as far as Jefferson county, Iowa. He actually died in Blackhawk township (likely where his daughter lived), not in the city of Fairfield proper. You can read my notes on his memorial about this.

Hope all is well - been a while since we've been in touch!

Check out your memorial 110942882. This is what I'm doing with the extra photo's I take from the inventory I'm doing at Lindquist.

Actually I've loaded hundreds of stone photos to the memorials already in Find A Grave at Lindquist.
