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 for taking the photos of my great great grandmother's marker. I am in Oregon and probably will never make it to Iowa.

RE: Snater
Thanks for the photos. I went back and read Sara's obit and she was buried next to her husband in the other Pleasant Hill. So I moved her back there. The rest of the family I assumed were at the same Pleasant Hill! Her grave was left unmarked obviously.

RE: neuendorf
Betsy, thank you so much for giving me the correct cemetery. I made the change, you should be able to add the photo. Ray is my 2nd cousin once removed through his mom (Hoisington).

James Harvey Painter
I have been doing work on the cemeteries in Andover, IL and needed to contact Cindy Lee about James Harvey because she had him in the wrong cemetery, but she has gone inactive.
I had entered James in the cemetery were he belonged. If you would still like him transferred to you, just let me know. Gladly do that.

Evelina Maland
Can you correct the spelling on Evelina Maland (name), buried in Norway Township Cemetery? Thank you for putting the entries out there! You can also relate her to E J Maland (father) and Hilda Maland (mother). I might try to add the relationships but I'm not sure it will let me.
