Bio and Links
Bio Photo Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a link to a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave. I was amazed, became hooked on this site, and have been contributing ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links.

I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I just try to add data. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries currently do not list burial or disposition details. Those people still deserve to be remembered here.

Unless one of my memorials is my relative or close friend, I do transfer memorials if you can and will add information.

Please let me know if I have an error so it can be corrected.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Feel free to contact me.

I have taken gravestone photos of these entire cemeteries, although I may not have recent burials. Some stones are photographed, but are not readable, so may not be matched with a memorial. All have been posted for:
Paton Cemetery - Paton, Iowa
Dawson Cemetery near Paton, Iowa
Antioch - Clarksville, Iowa
Lynwood - Clarksville, Iowa
Old Town - Clarksville, Iowa
Pleasant Valley - Clarksville, Iowa
Butler Center - Butler County, Iowa
St. Mary's Catholic - Greene, Iowa
Memorial Park - Austinville, Iowa
Ackley Christian Reform - Ackley, Iowa
St. Patrick's - Parkersburg
Memorial - Austinville, Iowa
Ackley Reformed - Ackley, Iowa
Oak Hill - Bristow, Iowa

I added many photos for McCallsburg Cemetery and Rose Hill Cemetery in Greene, Iowa. I will be adding more photos when possible.

My wonderful Jiffy has crossed the "Rainbow Bridge". I would love it if you stopped by her memorial. Thanks so much! 🐱

As long as I have your permission to use them I will find them. I have a map of Iowa Counties which shows most of the Civil War burials.I have loved this project, and the folks from Iowa have been so good at responding. I certainly do appreciate it. I think many of our soldiers went out there for the good farm land. At that time ( and even now) employment is a sad thing in Vermont. I feel blessed to have the family and life that I do. So much poverty through out-- so sad.
Again, Thanks for what you do--You are so kind.

Good Evening, I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "Old Soldiers. This has lead me to Iowa, where many of them migrated to, either after the war, or earlier with their families. I have seen a few Find A Grave memorial pages of these patriots that you have posted a photo for. I am asking if I may use these photo's on the Vermont Civil War site ( You would receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration on this.

Floyd Tuttle & Betty Ann Robinson
I have been researching the Tuttle family for a numbers of years, and the fact that Betty Ann Robinson married later in life to Floyd TUTTLE, caught my eye and, oh what a wealth of information, photos, and memorabilia you have on all the extended family. The detail of biographical information is astounding and is evident of extensive research on your part. I just wanted to congratulate you on a job well done !!

RE: Kyle
Thank you for transferring Kyle's page to me. Everyone deals with the loss of their loved one in different ways. I am not offended, rather, I am very appreciative that you took the time and effort to memorialize my lil guy and you didn't even know him.

I never realized how many children there are in cemeteries until my son passed. My heart aches for any parent that has to live through this journey. My cousin is buried across the road as well.

I'm sorry for your loss at such a young age. I can't even imagine what I would do without my mother. I would be lost for sure.

Please keep doing what you do! Again, thank you for thinking of my lil guy!

RE: Kyle Hardy
I know, it breaks my heart to see other families have to go through the loss that I went through and it hits me a lot harder. My cousin lost her son probably about 5 years ago, it was all I could do to pull it together to be there for her.

I had my daughter that I still needed to be there for and take care of and try to live life without too much interruption. Knowing that my lil guy helped others by being an organ donor also helped me get through.

No, I can't imagine what he would be like or what he would be doing with his life. It's hard sometimes.

If you want to transfer the page, that is fine. If not, that is fine as well. I'm not sure there are a lot of people that would add info anyway.
