I've spent a lot of time in cemeteries over the years, hope to get lots of my stuff loaded and looking forward to being able to fulfill requests for others.|
"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals." ~William Gladstone
Please follow Find A Grave policy when capturing images to post here, whether on my memorials or others. You can read the FAQ's to learn all about it but it boils down to this….
If you did not purchase the monument it is not yours….Do Not Touch It…… Do not put chalk, flour, shaving cream, or any other concoction you can think of on it.
These substances do irreparable harm, especially to the precious old ones. Show respect to those that have gone, do not deface their headstone's.

I just found your photos of Amaziah & Tabithaʻs grave stones... arenʻt those wonderful names? Amaziah is my 5X great grand uncle. May I use the photos on my private family tree? I always give credit to the members who graciously allow me to use their photos... thanks so much....

After talking to several people, I was unable to find a permanent host site for the Third Street Cemetery report within the University of Iowa system. However, I did find someone with the computer skills to reduce the size of the electronic file so that it could be uploaded directly to my academia.edu page (instead of just having the temporary link on my page). The link to the downloadable pdf is: https://www.academia.edu/6118271/Bioarchaeology_and_History_of_Dubuques_Third_Street_Cemetery_13DB476_Dubuque_County_Iowa
In theory, the report will be available at this location for several years, which is much better than the one month left on the old link! If you get a chance, can you switch out the link on the Third Street Cemetery page you created?

I would like to add the photo of Bernice Lomis's (# 98099008) headstone & her husband Earl(#98099010) & their son Loren (#98099011) to my family tree on Ancestry. She was my 10th cousin,not close but still family.

I am amazed at how quickly you added all the Third Street Cemetery information to this website! What a fantastic service you have provided, making this available to a much wider audience.
The link to the excavation report itself will expire after 90 days--we are currently working on finding a more permanent host site within the university. However, the spreadsheet with the names of those we believe were interred at Third Street--called Appendix B--will continue to be available for download from my academia.edu page. We left it as an Excel file so that people could run searches or sort it as they needed to for their own research. https://www.academia.edu/5660157/Appendix_B_Bioarchaeology_and_History_of_Dubuques_Third_Street_Cemetery_13DB476
Again, thank you so much!

Good luck in your research Mary, I was glad to be able to help!

I'm not sure if Anna's maiden name of Gjivere is spelled right. Buried next to her and Christopher is John Gjivre and there is also another John Gjivre buried there. Her death date is confusing too. The death cert shows 1916 and the bio written in 1916 makes it sounds like she's still alive. But the marker shows 1896.

I have that he is buried in Plot: Soldiers Lot in the Baxter cemetery.
Earlier this year someone entered the National cemetery as a separate cemetery. It is located within the Baxter cemetery. I told the administrator it would be unfair for all who had their memorials to lose them because this person listed it as a separate cemetery when it is within the cemetery. He had duped most of them, so they decided it should be listed as both with the veterans listed in both cemeteries.
Your uncle is only listed in the Baxter cemetery, so why don't you go ahead and list him in this one as well:

Hello, thank you for contacting me. I'm happy to transfer their online memorials to family. Consider it done.

Sarah is not a relative of mine so I moved the headstone photo I took to your memorial and I deleted the memorial I setup. Thanks for spotting this. I went to Edmond Cemetery to fulfill some photo requests and ended up trying to photograph all of the headstones I could find. Some headstones were so bad that I could not make out names when I got home with them.
