Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy and walking cemeteries since 2006. One side of my family comes from southern Iowa/Northern Missouri (Wayne County and Mercer County) via Pennsylvania (Hempfield, West Moorland). The other side from Norway to Bode in Humboldt County, Iowa. Those Norwegians are hard to figure out! I also have roots in Greene County and scattered around the state. I would be happy to go to any cemeteries in central Iowa when time permits, just let me know where and who I am looking for and I will get there as soon as I can. I am also willing to look up information needed on a person at the local libraries when I go. I keep a list of requests and will be happy to add more.

If I have added a memorial for your family and that person is not in mine, I am willing to transfer.

Malnory photo
You took a much improved photo. And thank you for creating Almira's memorial. I will send edits for it. I have a lot of computer problems in the last week or so and it has slowed my response time down considerably. Thank you so much for your thoroughness.

Picture for Aurilla Jane Orsborn Severe
Typewritten cemetery records and digitized records are notoriously inaccurate due to the transcriber mistranscribing. That's why I requested a picture of the monument. If there is none, then the creator of the memorial needs to be apprised of that so that she can state on the memorial that there is no grave marker. If there is a picture of the monument, that's what was requested.

Betsy thank you so much for your photo of Mary Tillman's Marker. Do you remember if it was near the Large TILLMAN stone? Like the one Howard did for Find A Grave Memorial# 126516794
