Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 45 years and my husband, Roy, and I are also working on a project to identify and photograph burial places of Civil War veterans in Iowa. He is the State Graves Registration Officer for the Iowa Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW).

If you are a relative of someone I have posted a memorial for--that is NOT a relative of mine--I would be glad to transfer management to you. I do have a personal policy of NOT transferring memorials to anyone who is listed as Anonymous, though.

Please feel free to use my photos as you like, but I would appreciate photo credit if you use them on another website.

If you have a comment, question,or correction to any of my Memorials, please use the Edit on the Memorial page. It is much easier to find the correct person that way. Additions and corrections which are phrased rudely as demands may be ignored.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 113089206
Hi Linda. This info was from Armed Forces Graves Registration records that I was indexing for FamilySearch. I'd provide you with a copy but I've already turned those records over, however I'd expect those should be available on the FamilySearch site in the next month or so and will be searchable at that time. He may have re-enlisted...I saw several men who did multiple stints during the Civil War, and sometimes for different states. In the meantime, I've pulled my comment from his memorial to lessen any confusion.

RE: James Woodell
You are right. I've changed my two new postings to Woddell & sent a message to Roberta asking her to change James. The census, Civil War, etc. all say Woddell or Waddle. No record says Woodell. Thanks for catching this.

I'm always happiest when a family is reunited, so you're very welcome for the transfer.

I'm confused about the Blackmer part of the message, though. I only added one Blackmer memorial and that was Thomas's - who was hiding on the back of his parents' memorial stone. Nancy and Marie Mills did most of the logging at that cemetery. I don't even find that many of the photos are mine.

Or did I drop you a note that there was a duplicate there for one of the gentlemen? I don't find messages well. I have to find a better filing system. Seems that when I save everything, I can't find anything! :)

Yes, some confusion there but we've been trying to get it all figured out.
We should do a rerun to double check on some things but it's not the easiest cemetery to get to and the face-to-face meeting up with a llama on the way was 'interesting' to say the least!

Okay, just got word there were actually two fellows named John Douglas! So now I'm assuming you were looking for the one in the Civil War?
He was located in the Memphis National Cemetery in Memphis, Shelby Co, TN. Nice memorial & photo for him there so you can check out Memorial #3153936.

You have a photo request for John Douglas in the Rankin Cemetery, Wayne Co, IA.
There are two memorials for him there! The one you have the request on has no information for him. The other has dates, family links, photo, etc.
I've requested a removal of the duplicate which was posted last.
