Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Gadsden, Alabama, in 1981. I currently live in Bettendorf, Iowa, with my wife, two kids, three rodents, five guppies, and one cory catfish. I'm an amateur actor, and sometimes professional theatre technician. I'm an organizer and writer/director for a semi-regular living history event in local historic cemetery Oakdale Memorial Gardens. I am also in the process of nominating Oakdale to the National Register of Historic Places.

I'm also a genealogy buff, researching the following families:
Crow/Crowe, Couch, Oliver, West, Fenn/Fann, Humphries, Fleming, Scott, Petree/Petri, Mayer, Zimmerman, Smith, Sevier/Xavier Goode/Good/Goad, Ray, Henry, and McKeme (?) in the Southeast U.S. (AL, TN, NC, GA, VA, SC, AR) New England (PA, MA), England, France, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, and Spain.
Hatton, Doyle, Green, Fritsch, and Thomas in the Midwest (MO, IL, KY), Virginia, Ireland, and Germany.

I am also willing to do limited genealogical research in Scott County, Iowa. E-mail me for info.

RE: Samaria Franklin Oliver
I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I did not request the transfer; I simply explained that both were inactive, which you were. The Findagrave rules are for direct descendants. I will ask Samaria's grandson if it is worth "fighting" over. He is not a computer buff. I would have thought you'd be glad Samaria was well taken care of.

Samaria Franklin Oliver
There were two memorials already posted for Samaria when I tried to add information a year ago. I tried and tried to contact you and got no response from either memorial owner. Since I'm searching the Oliver family for Samaria's grandson (cousin of my husband) I asked for permission from Findagrave to correct the issues. They transferred the inactive Mulder to me. I do believe the biography I added is accurate, supported by records and his family memories. If you want me to remove mine, I would rather ask his grandson, direct line, to accept transfer than to leave Samaria cut off from his family. I wish I had known your wishes earlier, as Jim Lyle was visiting with us two days ago. Barbara Tynes Claiborne 47794197

Voss Family at Oakdale
Thank you so much for the photos you recently added for the Voss family. Greatly appreciated!
And I am also thankful to you for checking with the office about Wilhelmina Elizabeth Lueders Voss. Since they have no record of her burial there, I have deleted her memorial but I left information about her on her two children's memorials. Perhaps someday we'll find out where she was buried.
Keep up the great work and thanks for all the help.
Here's to teamwork!
