Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am from Charles City, Iowa, but have lived in the San Francisco Bay area for the past 46 years. My passion is genealogy. I add memorials to Find A Grave to help others find their long lost ancestors.

If you have information you would like added, please email me & I will be happy to add it and will do so in a timely manner.

If a record I have added is of your family member, let me know and I will be glad to transfer the ownership to you. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for your own personal use.

I would also like to thank Diane Scott, Mia Houghton & W.J. Huisman for all the obits & info they have sent to me for my memorials.

Jon Purcell
Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registration
My name is Jon Purcell. I am indexing Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registrations. I uploaded a record to Find-A-Grave for Frank Jasper Thompson (71831874). I hope the information is useful and the upload is okay.

Hi Kathy,
Would you consider combining the 2 Louise Sylvester Riverton & Riverside) sites to get rid of the duplicate? They are both your sites.
Thank you!

RE: George & Mary Osier
Thank you so much for the transfer of my great grandparents Osier memorials to me. With a little help from my scores of cousins we can hopefully tell their story to generations of descendants who follow us. Keep up the great work and thanks again. Daniel
