Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy creating grave registrations for my family and those that lived in their communities (primarily in Iowa).

Corrections, addtitions and link requests are welcome. Please use the "Edit", "Suggest A Correction" in the upper right corner of the memorial to submit your information. I do my best to make edits as quickly as possible.

I will gladly transfer management of a registration, if it falls within the Find A Grave Guidelines, unless the individual is part of my direct line. Others will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

You are welcome to use any of the photos I've contributed for your own personal use.

Thank you so much for the photo of AC Stoughton's grave stone. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to post it on his wife's monument also???

RE: Photo Question
If the brother's photo is cut off, it means that he is still living. :)

Lyle Kenneth Williams

Lyle Kenneth Williams ans Kenneth Lyle Williams are not the same person. Lyle was interred but Kenneth Lyle Williams was cremated and not interred. Kenneth's parents were Edith Bessie and Glenn Eric Williams. These people were NOT the parents of Lyle Kenneth. Kenneth Lyle Williams' wife name was Betty.

I hope this information has been helpful to you so you can provide the correct information for Lyle Kenneth Williams.

Kenneth Lyle Williams was my uncle.

Thanks for your reply. I took gravestone pictures of the Bockwoldt family in the 1990's, who were listed as being buried in St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery, Mackey, Iowa. All of the Bockwoldt memorials have been since been created with gravestone photos added, except for one, who I just created and added my photo. That is when I noticed this cemetery was listed as being in Boone, Iowa and not Mackey, Iowa. My Harmsen family is related to the Bockwoldt family, both coming from Fehmarn, Germany, an island off the northern coast of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. I spent a few years researching all I could find who came from Fehmarn, Germany. I noticed on F.A.G., that the island is not listed, for there are many, many towns on this island and from my 30 plus years of researching my family and many other families, thousands of Germans from this island came to America to Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Illinois, and Wisconsin, to list a few. Not sure how or who to contact to get changes made or add areas to a country. Most people don't even know of this island. Thanks for your note.

Hello! I have a question to ask. I was looking for Saint Paul's Lutheran Cemetery, Mackey, Iowa, which is in Boone County on this website, however I see it is listed as being in Boone, Iowa. I do believe this cemetery should be listed as being in Mackey and not Boone. Your thoughts? Can you change this? Thanks.

Thanks so much for your help in updating these memorials. I hope I've not burdened you with these updates, but I've been sitting here at home, too sick to do much of anything but play here at findagrave.
