Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am from Charles City, Iowa, but have lived in the San Francisco Bay area for the past 46 years. My passion is genealogy. I add memorials to Find A Grave to help others find their long lost ancestors.

If you have information you would like added, please email me & I will be happy to add it and will do so in a timely manner.

If a record I have added is of your family member, let me know and I will be glad to transfer the ownership to you. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for your own personal use.

I would also like to thank Diane Scott, Mia Houghton & W.J. Huisman for all the obits & info they have sent to me for my memorials.

Hattie Durkee Fluent Memorial

I have been going over this memorial #8357847 for days now and I now have 100% proof that the name, husband and child linked to this profile is incorrect.

I think this was a easy mistake because the actual Hattie Durkee Fluent was married to Hansley Fluent, but she did not die in 1932, nor was she born in 1858. This memorial is for Hansley's BROTHER's wife, another Hattie Fluent who was born in Feb. 1858 and died 20 Jul 1932 in Floyd, Iowa.

I have her death record and the obituary, along with her husband (Phineas Fluent)'s obit that indicates his wife's name and the exact date that she died.

I'm going to submit an edit through the edit tabs to make the corrections and if you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks!

Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registration
My name is Jon Purcell. I am indexing Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registrations. I uploaded a record to Find-A-Grave for Frank Jasper Thompson (71831874). I hope the information is useful and the upload is okay.

Hi Kathy,
Would you consider combining the 2 Louise Sylvester Riverton & Riverside) sites to get rid of the duplicate? They are both your sites.
Thank you!
