Edward Burke
I have been asked to walk the blocks at St. Ambrose and review the cemetery records to try and get a more accurate list of burials in St. Ambrose in Des Moines. While reviewing the Burke family, I came across your report on Edward Burke. There was no date of birth, location nor photo. I was unable to see where you found his name, as he's not listed in the city cemetery record for any of the cemeteries, nor in an old burial record for St. Ambrose of burials before 1920. I searched Ancestry, but couldn't find him in Des Moines. There was one in Jasper Co., but without a birth year or middle initial, it was hard to trace him. There were several Ed. Burke's and they died about the same time, but elsewhere. So, I would appreciate it if you would let me know where you received this information. If there is no proof he is buried in St. Ambrose, I would appreciate you taking out this report so we can make the most accurate list of the burials as possible. Thank you.

The End
I was so sorry to hear what happened to you. Thank you for all you have contributed to Find A Grave over the last 7 years. Your work is greatly appreciated by me and I'm sure others! I am sorry you are discouraged by the things that can happen on this site. I take it one day at a time. There have been lots of problems on Find A Grave in the last several months. I'm wondering if its worth all the hassles of late? Enjoy life now.....

Thank you! Don't know if I saw any obits you had posted, but there are some on the memorials I've visited recently.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker photo on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Hello MidwestAncestree,

I'm asking for your permission to use the photo of Oliver on my family tree . Of course.I will give you full photo credit. I feel you got a bum rap for all your work you achieve on Find A Grave. The rest of us really appreciate your work on publishing the obits.
