"IRISH EYES ARE SMILING"
GARRISON ROCK CEMETERY
Can you please give me directions to the cemetery?
"Kathleen Gaibel" To: maryLanigan1942@yahoo.com

Hello Mary!
I am a descendant of the Byerly/Jenison family who are buried in Garrison Rock Cemetery outside of Ottumwa. I have made two attempts to locate this cemetery in the last 3 weeks. So far unsuccessful....not sure if it has been let go to grow over or what. I accessed the Mcirnery property with permission and went up the steep drive (walked as the gate was padlocked) not an easy feat for me as I have a double knee replacement and my brother is handicapped also. anyway...walked all around the top of the hill there and even went back a 2nd time with my husband and were still unable to locate the graves. Would you know exactly where we need to look once we get to the top of the hill there? which direction it lies? we tried looking on Beacon from above satellite shots but couldn't see any gravestones etc.

I would dearly love to care for this place a few times of year, I could go and keep it trimmed up if I could only find it!

Any help or direction you could give me would be wonderful.

thanks

Kathleen Johnson Billman great granddaughter of Purly and Amanda Jane McMains Byerly, great great granddaughter of Nancy Jenison Byerly, great great great granddaughter of Purly and Lucinda Shumway Jenison.

Hi Becky, are you related to the Lute family? Where did the middle name of Marvin come from? I an a first cousin 3 times removed of John and everyone here in Ohio believes his middle name was Houston (John Houston Lute). Would like to know for sure so I can get in right in my family history. Thanks Brenda Massie Tolle

military Bible found/looking for family of service member
This is the COOLEST website. Thank you to whomever started it!!

I was given an old military Bible in 1977. It has an inscription to O.E.Burkholder from his mother and the town in Iowa along with the date from 1943, which tells me this person was most likely in WWII. I have been trying to his family off and on for years (google, for instance) to send them this Bible. I believe I found the correct person:
