|Bio and Links|
I was born in southwest Iowa and currently live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Both sides of my family have strong "roots" in Fremont and Page County, Iowa, which is where I've taken the majority of the photos I've added to FindAGrave. Civil War veterans in SW Iowa and the 4th Iowa Cavalry are recent interests.|
Simply taking a picture of a headstone is difficult for me. I use various sources to fill in the dash between the dates. If I've made mistakes feel free to send me corrections, or additions. I know that exact dates and places of birth and death, family relationships, obituaries, burial plots, etc. can be important sources of information. I will add information to any memorial I've created. I am more than willing to transfer memorials if they are not my relatives.
Feel free to retake and upload a headstone photo. Weather, time of day, peonies, etc. sometimes make a headstone photo difficult to read. Contact me if I need to delete my photo. I won't be offended.
Anyone may use any of my headstone photos from Find A Grave for their own family research.

It was so nice to meet you at the Sidney Cemetery a couple of weeks ago.
You happen to "own" many of my relatives memorials and have been prompt and gracious to make changes.
Thank you for making F-A-G a pleasant experience. It isn't always.

I sent a thank you for the wrong person. I got a note that Memorial# 143673886 was transferred to me. I don't see that it was transferred to me.

Shubel was a brother to my great great grandfather, William Henry Crouse, also a Civil War vet with brother Andrew. I put their family war story on his bio.
Thanks for anything you would share with me!
