Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in 2001 after 31 years as an agent with the U.S. Border Patrol and USINS. I also then worked two years on a contract with DHS. I have been active in cemetery research in Clay County, MO, for a number of years. I have also enjoyed doing research to locate the graves of some of the Medal of Honor recipients whose graves were never marked, or who never received the recognition due them.

Anyone may use any of my photos from Find A Grave for their own historical research. If you need one of my memorials transferred to you, let me know.

Lately, I have been trying to track down the graves of the men of the 4th Iowa Cavalry. I have met some very helpful members, and thank them for everything they have done to help me.

RE: Thank you and thank you
You are correct. I switched thank you notes. Wrong one to each of you. Now, no one will trust my research data. Ha.

Thank you for your photo too!
