Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began contributing to Find A Grave as a means to record the headstone inscriptions I had transcribed from walking many cemeteries back in the day, mostly Polk, Madison, Clarke and Warren counties in Iowa and mostly relatives. This was before Find A Grave and way before Find A Grave turned into a genealogical site. My main goal is to preserve what was written on the headstones and to learn about the people.

Please contact me by clicking the edit tab on the upper right hand corner of the memorial and then clicking the suggest a correction link. Please provide your source! I have been getting a number of messages containing incorrect information or guesswork. Family trees on another well known website are NOT sources.

I removed my email address because of spam. Recently it has gotten terrible!

Include all Find A grave memorial numbers if you are wanting me to link memorials please.

Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer.

I am always happy to make corrections and add links when asked.

Thank you!!

E D Nelson
Thank you for posting on E D Nelson's findagrave page His findagrave # is 71079457.
My great grandmother Lillie Louise Nelson Burt Herring is his sister. She is buried in Montgomery Co Miss. There is a photo of Lillie Louise and her sister posted on her page.
Do you have a photo of E D?
It has been a long struggle to research this Nelson family, with very limited success. If you have any info on these Nelsons, please contact me.
Thank you, Charlotte Brewer
PS My husbands Brewer ancestors came from Pickens Co SC and after the Civil War settled in North Ga. Is there a possible connection to your Brewers?

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one entombed there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.
