Bio and Links
Bio Photo I had been doing genealogy since I was 15 and I will admit to only being in my 50's so its been a while. I have 3 children that I pound genealogy into their heads day and night...besides who better to get to run all over a cemetery and find that missing relative. When I found this site I started going wild. I have hope to catch up to other contributors and be in the 1000's in my contributions. Hope my graves help someone else in their genealogy hunts.

Robert Harrison West
Thank you for your time and effort. I did find a reference to Robert Harrison West through one of the genealogy sites in Iowa in which it is stated that he was buried in an unmarked grave with his parents Thomas E. West and Sarah Ann Myers.
Again, Thank you

Please remove the cemetery name sign from the above memorial. It is taking up the 5th photo slot. I have something to post.

Robert Harrison West
I am searching for the burial place of my great-grandfather Robert Harrison West. One of the Ancestry public family trees indicates that according to the "Cemetaries of Dallas County, Iowa, Dallas County Genealogical Society", Robert Harrison West was buried on 2 May 1931 with his parents, Sara and Thomas West. They are interred in the Elmwood Cemetary, Minburn, Dallas, Iowa. This leads me to ask for your help in possibly answering the following questions. Is there any documentation to indicate that he was buried there? If so, Is the grave marked in some way with his name? Also, if he is in fact buried there, can his name be added to Find A Grave as being buried there?
Thank you,
Erv Parrish

Hi, I have duplicated your memorial on Alta Jackson in Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Madison County, Iowa. My memorial is #44296493. If you'd like to copy anything off of my memorial before I delete it please do. Carolyn

Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. I will create a memorial for my great aunt now that this other lady (with the same name) is no longer attached to my family.

Best wishes

Hello Wendy,

I've been trying to resolve a problem with this memorial on Martha Shea Cook 9981614.

She is not the child of Daniel Shea and Margaret Sullivan.

I notified Find A Grave to correct the error by disconnecting this Martha from my g-great grandparents. Now Find A Grave has made a bigger error by adding the bio of my Mattie Shea Cook to this memorial.

I'd really appreciate it if you could delete the bio info and disconnect Daniel Shea and Margaret Sullivan as her parents.

I don't want this memorial to be confused with my great aunt Mattie (Martha) Shea Cook.

Please let me hear from you at your earliest convenience.

Thank you
Kathy Lutzke

In the lower right corner of her memorial (9981614) it provides Martha's parents (see below) thanks to dd Mathews.

Would you please acknowledge this and my many other messages to delete Daniel Shea as her father.

I don't understand why you are not responding to my request but would sure appreciate taking action on this.

I await your response.

Thank you
Kathy Lutzke
