Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in southwest Iowa and currently live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Both sides of my family have strong "roots" in Fremont and Page County, Iowa, which is where I've taken the majority of the photos I've added to FindAGrave. Civil War veterans in SW Iowa and the 4th Iowa Cavalry are recent interests.

Simply taking a picture of a headstone is difficult for me. I use various sources to fill in the dash between the dates. If I've made mistakes feel free to send me corrections, or additions. I know that exact dates and places of birth and death, family relationships, obituaries, burial plots, etc. can be important sources of information. I will add information to any memorial I've created. I am more than willing to transfer memorials if they are not my relatives.

If I didn't create a memorial but did upload a photo of the headstone, click on the headstone photo for additional information. I've given up on suggesting edits and/or corrections to the creator of the memorial.

Anyone may use any of my headstone photos from Find A Grave for their own family research.

Jemina L (Hinshaw) Groves
I am sorry , but I don't remember getting an email from you concerning Jemina. I have had a lot of health problems, I am 82. I know I have taken a lot of time, sometimes but I try to answer every email I get.
Are you related to Jemina? she is my Son-in-law's great great Grandma, thru her son Martin.
What were your suggestions?
I wish I could find a picture of her for Frank,
so that he would know what she looked like, also
her parents. Sincerely, Shirley I Shawver Nees

John Carnes photo
You are most welcome to use the photo of John Carnes' headstone at Jefferson Barracks. That was one of my early photos and it is not very clear. However, I'm recovering from surgery and unable to return to the cemetery for a better photograph. I will be happy to photography the rest of the 4th Iowa when I can resume photographing at JB.

Vyse's in Hamburg Cemetery
And, if you are not related to the Vyses in Hamburg Cemetery, I would very much be interested in you transferring them to me. I would take very good care of them. I am related to them, though distantly, through our common Beckwith ancestor. I have search long and hard for Mary (Beckwith) Vyse, because she first married James Barton in Ontario, and then, on his death married, a man with the last name Vyse. I had looked for her for years. It has only been with the advent of the Internet that I was able to locate her about 2 to 3 years ago. I only recently joined Find A Grave, so I didn't contact you sooner. Thank you.

James and Mary Vyse

I would like to thank you for posting the tombstones with the birth and death info on James Vyse and Mary Vyse in Hamburg Cemetery, Fremont County, Iowa. I just want to let you know that I changed the dates and places of birth and death to agree with the tombstone.

I am hoping that you also have tombstone photos to match the dates of birth and death you posted for the above people, because there should be a James Arthur Vyse in Hamburg Cemetery that agrees with the dates you posted (husband of Susan Louise (Snyder) Vyse, and a Mary (Cunningham) Vyse, wife of Irving L. Vyse. I hope you will check your records and enter them on Find A Grave, if you have evidence of them being buried there.

I live in Michigan, so can not visit the cemetery to take photos. I am hoping you do live close, and can visit the cemetery again to take photos.

I will also try to call the cemetery and see if they have records of the above two missing people in the cemetery.

Again, thank you for posting the above to individuals. I am so happy to have been able to link them to the Beckwith family.
