|Bio and Links|
Interconnections of families within and between cemeteries fascinate me. Its like a giant puzzle. Each connection leads to another. |
My goal is to document these connections and if possible add short biographies with the help of descendants or other sources.
I want these people to have identities...to be more than just a stone in a cemetery. I want their lives to be more than a dash between birth and death dates.
I do have a special interest in the Civil War especially Iowa, Pennsylvania and Virginia since my roots lie in those states.
Surnames of family interest: Bonnett, King , Pollock, Keller, Harsch, Saffell.
Transferring entries is not a problem as long as I am not closely related.
Always happy to make corrections or additions.

|scoop||George P. Belden|
I see you posted the grave of George Belden in Keokuk National Cemetery. I have been reading a book based on his diaries and manuscripts. It is called, Telden, the White Chief; Tweleve Years Among the Wild Indians of the Plains. The first copys were printed in 1870, the year before he died. Just interesting information about the fellow.
