Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started into genealogy in 1994. It has been a long process that my mother told me I would be continuing for the rest of my life since there is always new information to find. A never ending journey.

♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥

I will Transfer Memorials upon Request except for my family members. Photo's may be used for family trees. Thank you.

♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥

When I started working on Find a Grave I noticed that several of the family members were not listed or linked together. I would like to provide an opportunity for people to be able to find out about their family heritage in an easier way than I have. I have spent years tracking down documentation from different states. I am thankful for all who have assisted me in this journey. I want to be able to honor those who have come before us. Someday we will be with them again. I have NO problem in transferring maintenance of your family members if they are not mine. I think that all family members should be united. But if you would like me to continue maintenance of your loved ones, I will. Love and Blessings.

RE: Edna Tassie
Your welcome I hope you can figure out how to delete the pictures. I tried last night and there was no place when I went in to edit to delete pictures unless I wanted to delete the entire memorial.

Good afternoon
I received your request to remove the pictures but apparently there have been changes to the website as there is no place for me to remove photos. I will send a request to find a grave forwarding your request that the two photos be removed. I will gladly transfer the memorial to you if you like as well.

RE: joseph Lauer 128563724
Hi There,
Sorry for the delay. Joseph Lauer is my 3rd great uncle. I am a descendant of his brother Jacob. I have several documents that show a middle initial of M and a couple that show his middle name is William. One that I just looked up is: Joseph William Lauer
in the California, Voter Registers, 1866-1898

I am not able to attach it here for you to view, but if you send me your email address, I'll invite you to view my family tree on Ancestry and you can look at all of the sources.

Hi There,
Just noticed this post from you. Let me dig into that and get back to you as to where it came from. You must be a cousin as his brother is an ancestor of mine, Jacob Lauer.

Talk soon,

Hi there Debra!
JT Bowers son Jay Bowers married my Aunt. I have fond memories of Jay when I was young! He was a handsome dashing man!

I remember visiting Jay's family in Columbia, South Carolina. They had a peach orchard and the fresh peach ice cream was quite memorable!

Sorry about putting the wrong date - Must have been brain dead. I just approved the correction.

I have in my possession the obit for Ella. If you have names of others that lived in Iowa I would be glad to look for you. If you would contact me at my e mail address I would be happy to send you the obit and any other info I may find.
