Why Find A Grave is important to me:

Little Boy Lost No More
A Mite of Humanity
The Broken Chick
Union Cemetery:

Special thanks to: Duane Heit and Merrill Austin ~ For help with the history of my family in Iowa. And many others who help me piece together my family quilt.

Kudos to Dyanne, Mike, Deb, Jerry, Lane, Christopher, and Ms Lucy for their countless hours of help documenting Union Cemetery!
Special thanks to Jerry, Mike, Leonard, and Deb for transferring their Union memorials to my care.

I believe in credit where credit is due. Those sending information for memorials I manage are linked in the memorials. The helpful nature of Find A Grave volunteers is awesome!

For Union Cemetery: When there is conflicting information about the verified spelling of a name, I will use the spelling on the gravestone inscription. If there is no gravestone, I will use the spelling as shown in the cemetery records unless there is compelling evidence of a different spelling.

** My apologies for any delays in responding to corrections, suggestions, or other inquiries. I have been very ill since September 2014 and unable to do anything on Find A Grave. I am now recuperating with slow but steady progress, so please hang in there with me. I will work a few hours each day to try to catch up but it will take a while. (11 Feb 2015)

Please send all corrections and additions through the EDIT link in the upper right corner of each memorial rather than posting them to my profile page. This allows me to easily access the precise memorial so I can correctly add pertinent information. Thank you.

Sorry I meant 1851 instead of 1861.

Zoom into the date on the headstone and the birth year says 1852 instead of 1862. Its a crazy looking 5.

thanks for you work helping us all out to find our ancestors.

Hilltop Cemetery Photos
I have uploaded a number of photographs (Paysons, Titus, Baileys, Achers) to this cemetery that you requested notification of on any changes. I used the uploader, and not the edit feature as it is much faster, but I wanted to let you know.

Murray Family in Mt. Carmel Cemetery

I was just wondering if you are related to the Murray family that is buried in Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Lawler, Iowa?

My family is buried there----I was just looking at my 2nd great grandfather's post on FindAGrave that you are managing.

Thanks, Sue Oliver

Lieut Smith Crane
How are you connected to Lieut Crane? Are you a family member somewhere down the line or are you simply interested in military records or this particular cemetery?

I received an edit this morning regarding his mother. When I clicked on this memorial to check it out, I find this bio. I have searched my records, as I save all my emails and I never added this bio? Did you ask for me to transfer this to you? How did you get this done? Would you like for me to transfer this to you?
