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.

Thank you so much for the photos. Your Find A Grave efforts are greatly appreciated by us "genealogically obsessed" relatives.

I just checked my email and see that you have fulfilled a photo request for me. It is such a nice, clear photo. Thanks for your time and energy in driving to the cemetery and locating the grave marker. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

RE: Huey
Thank you so much for checking on the grave location for Daniel and Calvin. I really appreciate it! I know Daniel at least was estranged from his family so I will try to track him elsewhere now. Thanks again, I will remove their memorials from that cemetery.

photo correction
Thanks for fixing that up. Betsy, do you know of a way to verify burial or find plot location at Evergreen Cemetery in Clarion? Does the city of Clarion run it? I have family that certainly must be buried there, but I'm not sure how to access cemetery records or if there are any to access. Thanks for any help.

LoriW placement error
Betsy, you attached a photo to memorial 23386539, but this memorial is the son of the people on the headstone. The correct memorial for the George Brewster Dean on the headstone is 169427614. I hope it's not too much trouble to swap this.

Thank you for the photos
Thank you so much for the photos of Verna Dean and of Mendel Shaffer. Both of these helped fill in dates in my tree.

Thanks for Littlefields

Thank you so much for your quick response in providing photos of the gravestones of Ora Nellie Littlefield and the other family members in the plot. Having her date of death gave me the info needed to track down her obituary, and fill in a hole in my family tree.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
