Bio Photo Born and reared in Southern California until age 12 at which point our father moved us to his hometown in Southern Missouri. After graduating from High School in West Plains, MO, I have attended college, served four years in the Army, and worked in the construction industry which has allowed me to live in or visit 48 of the 50 states and a few foreign countries. I currently live in Central Indiana. My love of family history keeps me roaming cemeteries wherever and whenever possible. I have been a serious genealogist for about 15 years. The photo shows me beside the military marker of my 2nd great grand uncle, Samuel L. Gannon, Indiana 1st Heavy Artillery located in the National Cemetery, Marion, Indiana.

RE: Mildred Dix
I am a photo volunteer. The request was for Mildred Dix born 1898, Died 1969. Fairview Cemetery Cedar Falls, Black Hawk County, Iowa. I took the picture based on the information on Mildred's memorial page that she is buried next to her mother. There is no stone. Internment information used to locate Mildred Dix is from non published papers at the Cedar Falls Iowa Public Library compiled by "The Northeast Iowa Genealogical Society of Waterloo DAR and Cedar Falls Historical Society Complete through 31 Dec 1989." The location of the grave is listed as Box 6 Lot 23. Internment information is: "Mildred Dix 13 April 1898 7 Mar 1969. D/O Elmer and Angie Reed."

The caption on both photos posted states that there is no stone. That is why I included the space next to mother Angie Reed in the photo.

In checking the marker for Mildred's husband listed on her memorial, it appears that this must be his second wife. Information on the page states he was preceded in death by his first wife Mildred ... Grass is covering the name on the plate, but the date of birth is 1921 and death is 2004 which does not match the request. It is also located in another Cemetery.

Sorry for the confusion. If this picture is not accurate or in keeping with what you want. I will be happy to remove it.

Photo requests
Charles I noticed you had requested photos of Holmes and Brimhall graves at Howell Valley Cemetery in West Plains. This past summer I completely photographed the cemetery for the Missouri Gravestone Project and also added the photos to Find a Grave. I am confident that their graves are not marked as I took great care to walk the cemetery row by row when I took pictures.

You are very welcome. I was a little concerned it wouldn't be readable in the photo, as dusk was approaching. I'm glad it turned out.

I will take a look at the museum in the morning. They usually have them unless the family didn't have them published.
