Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in a small town in Iowa and members of the Pioneer Cemetery Commission for our county. We have been interested in genealogy for several years and spend a lot of time in Graveyards and Cemeteries taking pictures, taking notes, just piecing the families together.
Some of these Cemeteries are so old that there are not any other records of the people resting there. When these cemeteries does that person's existence!
We would like to thank all of you for your contributions to the preservation of these cemeteries.
The peace and serenity found in these old cemeteries is our reward!
If there is a memorial we have added, that is not in our family, we will consider a transfer of the memorial to you.
Please use the Edit tab,(upper right hand corner of the memorial) Please do this on every memorial that you want transferred or a correction on and please include your ID number.
Thank You, Mo & Dave

Dr. Franklin Holloway
Thank you for your work. I am submitting a correction to the title of Dr. for Franklin Holloway. He was a farmer, not a doctor. His son, Charles E. Holloway, became a doctor, not Franklin.
Thank you for correcting this title.

Emma Bell Litzenberg
When you were working with the Litzenberg family, did you run across Emma Bell Litzenberg? She was the youngest child of William Litzenberg and his third wife Mary Long. Emma was born about 1870 in Henry Co., IA and owned 40 acres of land in 1898 in Marion Twp. near her brother Ben Litzenberg. I loss her after 1898.

THANKS!! Barbara

James Thomas Chandler

Thanks for all you do! I did an edit on James Thomas Chandler -66228660. He was not the son of Addison and Mary Chandler. There were actually two James Chandler's during this same time frame. Addison and Mary had a son James Veyne Chandler - 69100169 who died in Nebraska.

I have newspaper clippings where Addison actually died at James Veyne's home in Nebraska. If you'd like them.

I just wanted to explain my editing of James Thomas's file. I'm sorry I've done no research for James Thomas Chandler - I'm not sure if he is related to my family or not.
