Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 'farm girl' who grew up and still live in Iowa.

I am trying to leave a legacy on Find a Grave for my children and grandchildren, and for others as well, by making family stories and links.

I found my great grandmother's headstone on Find a Grave quite by accident and have been hooked on this site ever since.

I enjoy helping others find relatives' and friends' resting places. I have posted many memorials and photos from various cemeteries so others can gather data.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

I am not interested in amassing large numbers of memorials. I am interested in contributing data and connecting family members.

Forgive me for not yet having all burial locations takes time to research. Also, some mortuaries do not list burial or disposition details in their obituaries now, so there exists some unknowns.

I do transfer memorials if you have information to add, unless it is for my relative.

I often try to add information and family links by researching a family. This takes time, so some memorials I've created are not done.

Please let me know if there is an error so it can be corrected. I want to have true and appropriate information.

I usually make edit requests the same day. I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Contact me using the edit and SAC tab on any of my memorials. I do not post my email address.

Lizzie Knight Mallo
If you had not posted her memorial I would still be wondering what happened to my 2x grandfather's 4th wife. The photo of her that I uploaded came into my possession 4 days ago. With just the information on the back I was able to find her in Clarksville and then back track her to Alonzo Brainerd Patterson. So in one evening I was able to put the rest of her life in Alonzo Moody Bailey's story. Her marriage license to Mr. Mallo was a gold mine.

Henry Graven
If you want to manage Henry Graven Memorial 66987968 , go ahead and make the request and I will transfer it. I'm not related in any way to Henry. I must ran across his information while researching my wife's aunt here in Abilene, TX. Also the Gravens here is spelled with an "s". Thanks

Bohner Family
One more thing. Since you were able to take the photos of George, Katie, Sebert, & Roberta in Butler County I was wondering if you lived close by. The reason I ask is I put a photo request in at Washington Reformed Church Cemetery in Butler at the end of June and noone has been able to claim it. I didn't know if you were close enough and willing to take a photo of George Bohner Jr and his wife, Avonelle.

I just wanted to check. Thanks again for all your help!

Also Paul's obit on his memorial page. One sister's name is Adalis, and I sent
you the parents' links on the memorial page for Idlyss...I was wondering if they
were the same person? If not, you wouldn't link her to George and Elsie.

I wouldn't know if Adalis and Idlyss are the same person. If the link to George and Elsie was already made per your request and you want it removed, I would need Idlyss' memorial #. We probably should just add memorials and facts and not much genealogical data. Census info us often incorrect - but it is a starting point for research.

I cannot delete the later memorial for this person. You would have to contact that memorial manager. I would need the spouses memorial # in order to link him.

RE: Sophia Treat
My pleasure, I have several family members in this cemetery but only get there about once each year. Try to spend as much time as possible when we go, this year the sun was not very cooperative for pictures.

Thanks so much for posting photo for Jim Meek grave in Greene Iowa. I had been hoping to get over and take a picture. He was a former boss and very good friend of mine. In Greene County my family members are Black's. My grandmother Marie Black is grand-daughter of Jacob Black. Thanks again.
