Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy and walking cemeteries since 2006. One side of my family comes from southern Iowa/Northern Missouri (Wayne County and Mercer County) via Pennsylvania (Hempfield, West Moorland). The other side from Norway to Bode in Humboldt County, Iowa. Those Norwegians are hard to figure out! I also have roots in Greene County and scattered around the state. I would be happy to go to any cemeteries in central Iowa when time permits, just let me know where and who I am looking for and I will get there as soon as I can. I am also willing to look up information needed on a person at the local libraries when I go. I keep a list of requests and will be happy to add more.

If I have added a memorial for your family and that person is not in mine, I am willing to transfer.

I just found your picture of Colben's grave. I have visited it several times. Colben was my great grandfather. My grandmother was his daughter, Martha, who married my grandfather Sivert( Sievert,Sjur)Nasheim (Nesheim) in Fertile,Ia. My mother was Evelyn who was the second to the last of their nine children. I also visited my great Aunt Carrie who lived in Hanlontown,Ia. and was there for her 90th birthday celebration. Are you related to any of Martha's siblings ie. Sever, Albert or Knute Monson?
