Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 45 years and my husband, Roy, and I are also working on a project to identify and photograph burial places of Civil War veterans in Iowa. He is the State Graves Registration Officer for the Iowa Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW).

I have Virtual Cemetery of Civil War Veterans buried in Iowa which now has well
over 15,000 names but is unsearchable because Find a Grave will not search if there are over 10,000 names. I have contacted them several times about this issue and would appreciate it if you would also contact them at to tell them that you would like to access this Virtual Cemetery. Maybe if enough people ask, they will fix this problem. I am fairly certain that I am not the only one with this issue.

If you are a relative of someone I have posted a memorial for--that is NOT a relative of mine--I would be glad to transfer management to you. I do have a personal policy of NOT transferring memorials to anyone who is listed as Anonymous, though.

Please feel free to use my photos as you like, but I would appreciate photo credit if you use them on another website.

If you have a comment, question,or correction to any of my Memorials, please use the Edit on the Memorial page. It is much easier to find the correct person that way. Additions and corrections which are phrased rudely as demands may be ignored.

RE: Michael Clifford
I have posted the photo with an explanation below it. I tried to see ANYTHING on it that would verify it was indeed Michael's without damaging the stone. there just was nothing at all that I could read.

Michael Clifford
By the way.. from what you are wanting to know.. the librarians were VERY helpful there and I don't live around here but I do know they have old obituaries and I am sure if you contact them they would be happy to look to see if they have anything about him to make sure it is who you want? I would have checked when I was in there but I look up many photo requests and did not know when I went there that you needed that specific information.

Michael Clifford
Records at the library state there is indeed a Michael Clifford buried in this cemetery with a headstone. I looked at every stone in the cemetery and I could only find ONE stone with the name Clifford on it.. unfortunately the only thing that could be made out on the engraving AT ALL was the last name Clifford. I couldn't make out any dates or anything else. however there is a GAR placard which states GAR 1861-1865.. do you think this is the Michael Clifford you want? Do you want me to post this photo on his memorial page? Just let me know.
