Bio and Links
Bio Photo Working on photographing gravestones that have not been previously recorded in about two dozen central and northwest Iowa cemeteries. If you find a memorial I've created that does not include a photo, I probably have it and will get it posted eventually unless it includes the name of a living spouse.
I process corrections submitted through the edit tab several times a week and my memorials include large amounts of data submitted by others. I try to include the FindAGrave contributor source in material provided for the biography.
If you would like transfers, I am happy to do that unless I'm more closely related than you are. If you have better photos than mine, I am willing to remove mine. Please send your requests through the Edit tab on the memorial page.

RE: Al Sargent
I did some more checking and found an online family tree for his father Richard S. Sargent which lists a son Richard A. with the same dates as "Al". Richard A. also got a pension which states that he died in Iowa Falls. In the 1895 IA census he is listed as Ai R or Al R with the same reg. as I found on the pension. Check out this 1895 IA census. I think his name may be Ai We did find another CW vet whose first name was Ai.

I noticed that you have taken pictures of the gravestones of Michael and Mary Creagan in St. Mark's Cemetery in Iowa Falls. If you ever find yourself there again, all of the Creagans are relatives - John P. Creagan is my maternal gr. grandfather and I am most interested in him.

RE: Al Sargent
Hi. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We have Mr. Sargent on our list, but have not found any reg info for him. I am wondering about his name and why the L isn't capitalized. Maybe it was AI? I'm still investigating.

RE: William Welden
Thanks for that info. I guess I haven't tried searching that way from the cemetery page.

RE: William Welden
Apparently I did that memorial before I discovered that neither name is searchable if you put them both in the same box. I have deleted that one. Your previous message was more clear than my reply!

What other cemeteries/counties are you working on?

RE: Francis P. Welden
I did not find a memorial for him under Weldon, but if you did, just send me the number and I will delete it. Thanks.

RE: Roske
Great job. No it's not necessary to transfer the Minnies to me.
Thanks, Diane

I moved all the Roske you mentioned to the Union Cemetery. I didn't add the gravestones, thought you would want to do this.
Albert, Danial, Fred, Friedrich "Fred", Paulina, and William.

thanks I appreciate you're letting me know.
