Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in southwest Iowa and currently live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Both sides of my family have strong "roots" in Fremont and Page County, Iowa, which is where I've taken the majority of the photos I've added to FindAGrave. Civil War veterans in SW Iowa and the 4th Iowa Cavalry are recent interests.

Simply taking a picture of a headstone is difficult for me. I use various sources to fill in the dash between the dates. If I've made mistakes feel free to send me corrections, or additions. I know that exact dates and places of birth and death, family relationships, obituaries, burial plots, etc. can be important sources of information. I will add information to any memorial I've created. I am more than willing to transfer memorials if they are not my relatives.

If I didn't create a memorial but did upload a photo of the headstone, click on the headstone photo for additional information. I've given up on suggesting edits and/or corrections to the creator of the memorial.

Anyone may use any of my headstone photos from Find A Grave for their own family research.

Mildred J. Pierson Fredrickson
From your memorial it seems you knew Mildred. I have some photos that I believe might be her and her family. If you were to get scans could you try to identify as many as you can?

William Alexander Hunter
William Alexander is my 4th Great Grandpa. His son is Captain JRC Hunter. I was trying to link the two, but I don't think I have access. Can you link it for me? I have looked up the censes on his family, so I know the facts are correct. Thank you.

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

I am so pleased to be finding such nice postings by you on some of my Kayton relatives. I have been working on genealogy. Are you a relative? If so, I would like to hear from you. Thank you so much! Yvonne Hollenbeck

RE: photographing graves
Hi! It's Kay again . . . just noticed that you live in the Omaha area now. I live in Bellevue west HWY 75 and the base. Would you ever be interested in going together to photograph graves? I enjoy doing it but sometimes it is a lonely hobby!

RE: Lovelady grave photos
Thank you so much for completing my request for the Lovelady grave photos in Sidney, Fremont, Iowa. Hope you went while we had some WARMER weather. The cold has kept me from making very many cemetery visits this winter!!

Thanks again!
