Hello most of memorials are of family. Those that are not family were tombstones that caught my eye and I thought were interesting looking. If I have added a family member please email me and I will transfer them to you. Family should be the first to add a name.|

Are you related to the Flattey family?
James and Winifred Flattery are my GGGrandparents.
They had six children, Sarah, the oldest child is my GGrandmother.
I would be interested in any info you have about this family.

|J Poole||RE: Frank Curler|
I think his birthdate of 1866 is correct. Census records show his birth year varies from 1864 to 1874. The earliest census for him is 1870 where his birth year shows as 1866. The gravestone birth date of 1863 is probably incorrect. Maybe you can add a comment to his memorial page about the conflicting dates. Thanks.

I did a photo survey of the original (south) section of the Lake City Cemetery.
In 1979, the Iowa Genealogical Society asked all county societies to do a walk-thru of all the cemeteries in their counties and record all the stones and locations. Much like the WPA in the 1930's. Calhoun County volunteers outdid themselves by also obtaining the sexton records from the city. They included block, row, lot and plot. If there was a tombstone photo, I did not include that information. John is Old Cemetery, East Additon, Block 2 Row 7, Lot 64, plot 1. Corette is in plot 3. Hazel is in plot 4 and Carl is in plot 5.
Please let me know how the other Seays are related to each other and I will be glad to link them.
Smiles from Iowa

I'm sorry my camera on this type of marker does not take a clear picture. Therefore I don't know the name of his wife.

It was my pleasure to photograph and post photos for 4 of your 8 year-old requests in Georgetown today. I was on a tight schedule, but I did not find the other 4 graves. Sorry.
FYI, the grave markers say that James Flattery died in 1925, not 1926; and Mary Flattery was born in 1858, not 1859. Don't know what is correct. . . .
Have an awesome day, Bill
Thanks for making the wee correction! Janet Johanson

I postee the obituary for Bertha Morehead Varner. It gives her parents names and her maiden name. She had evidently been married to a Stebbins because she had a stepson Glenn Stebbins. If you want, I can go to the courthouses and check this out more closely.
Thank you for checking my sources, so we can make correct information available on the find-a-grave site.

It is a grave heastone - but a rather long one with one wife and two husbands on the stone. The cemetery records indicate that the wife was married three times. So the people on the stone are related in a way.
