Bio Photo I have transcribed alot of records in the Eldon Cemetery (Wapello Co. Iowa).
If you have more info on any of these & would like me to transfer them to you let me know.
I did this so families could connect with each other.
I always like it when someone does this for me!!!

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:
