Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in a small town in southeast Iowa and spend a lot of time in Graveyards and Cemeteries taking pictures, taking notes, just piecing the families together.

Some of these Cemeteries are so old that there are not any other records of the people resting there. When these cemeteries does that person's existence!
We would like to thank all of you for your contributions to the preservation of these cemeteries.
The peace and serenity found in these old cemeteries is our reward!

If there is a memorial we have added, that is not in our family, we will consider a transfer of the memorial to you.
Please use the Edit tab,(upper right hand corner of the memorial) Please do this on every memorial that you want transferred or a correction on and please include your ID number.
Thank You, Mo & Dave

RE: Rebecca Johnston Garren
Thank you. My friend was going to the cemetery to get info and they told her no record. Out of 30,000 in my date base, This line is my only "hole". I will keep looking. If and when I get info, I will gladly let you know.

1-your e-mail is not valid.
Per info attached on Rebecca Johnston Garren, My friend was going to Bakersfield to take a picture of the cemetery stone, and she contacted the Hillcrest Memorial Park, Bakersfield, Kern County, California. They said that they DO NOT have any information on her. How do I know that she is buried their ????
She is my GGG Great-grandmother. I am related thru her daughter Nancy Jane who married Daniel Riley Fletcher Bedwell in 1850 in Iowa.
Any Help would be appreciated. Thank You,

Thank you so much for all the pictures taken at the Friends Cemetery in Henry County. I grew up going to there to tend graves and miss going to see my Dad. I'm not sure where you are from but if you ever get farther south, there is a beautiful cemetery over looking the Mississippi river in Lee county (Sandusky) that I would love pictures of. My mothers family are all buried there.

Thank you for processing the edit(s) I submitted for "Emma" #74123171. This Ruckman family is part of my maternal Ruckman line, and you have help add another Ruckman to the family line. I appreciate you creating her memorial & your photograph of her headstone. sjmohr

Thank you for all you’ve done as I will never get to that area to check cemetery records.

For # 67464459 the tombstone reads Oct but you show Aug as death month.

RE: Re: 81168263, Susan Sullivan
Thank you! I'm pretty sure that it is my Susan, because her nephew and his wife, James Nickel, are in the same plot. #81168171. Another memorial set up by you.
