Bio and Links
Bio Photo All good deeds must be punished, I guess. I have been requested to remove all the obituaries I have posted. Since I have posted hundreds, this is an impossible task. I will no longer contribute ANYTHING to and will limit my volunteer efforts to The complainer did not even have the decency to sign their email, therefore most post here.

For those looking for Obits from Appanoose County, Iowa, search for them at the FREE website:

Unknown heritage for MORLAN, JUMPER, ROSS, JONES, BEAR in Iowa.

Thank you for the Family Links and for all of the work you did here at Find a Grave. The obituaries are such a treasure, nothing like the sterile ones we see today. Best wishes to you in your work wherever you choose to do it, a loss to our community here at Find a Grave.

I'm sorry to hear about the obituaries, I really appreciated reading those for my family. I was told that there are limitations to the copyrights of these obituaries so maybe you needn't remove all of them. Thanks again and best wishes to you in your work and research.

Hi Joanie,

Information on the twins came from the Maloney Funeral home records. They are also listed in the online North Platte Cemetery records. From the old North Platte Cemetery book, it looks like Daniel & Simon were buried in a different Lot. Then reburied with their brother Dallas.

Hope this helps,

David Goltry

You can post an obituary if you rephrase it as "Information" or "bio".

i.e. Joseph Smith was the son of XX and XX. He was born in XX on XX XX XXX. etc.
No one can stop you from providing a bio and you can add if someone is interested in the actual obituary, to contact contributor _____.

What a tragedy this is for all families that will never know the story of their loved ones that have all that precious info. in their obits
This is the way it is all over the world, (a few complain) and THEY change the LAWS. You see it time and again in this country. The countless hours/days/months you have spent on this
What a shame

I'm sorry that you've been asked to remove the obituaries you have posted on find-a-grave because I am so very grateful to you for posting my husband's gr gr gr grandmother's obituary. We probably would never have it if not for your kind effort.

Henry Franzen

Saw that you requested a photo of Henry Franzen's marker (plus his wife if there) in Sentinel Butte Cemetery. When I see a request I always look at the bio of the person who requested the photo.

I was VERY dismayed when I read what you had to say about being asked to remove the obituaries you posted! When I first started doing memorials I only added name of parents and spouse if available - well plus dates, of course. Then I found a memorial for my great aunt that had an obituary on it. I was THRILLED!

There are always a few "rotten apples". I am so sorry that you had the misfortune of being a victim of their malice. I would dare venture that there are many people who really appreciate/appreciated the effort that you put into Find a Grave!

There is a saying in Latin (which I don't know in Latin) - it translates "Don't let the bastards grind you down."

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

I could not find his wife. If you want the picture of the back of his stone I can send it to you. But it only shows that he is buried there. Sorry.

Keilwitz in Hebron
Marie Keilwitz was with Otto Keilwitz and the closest grave was that of Henry Kripal (1923-1985). If you would like a photo for either of these, please request and I would be happy to add a photo.
