Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired federal employee who has been involved in chasing my families for more than forty-five years. For the past fifteen years I have enjoyed helping other researchers gather data from western Iowa, which I now call home. A number of the local cemeteries I walked and recorded in the past yet now with the digital age, it appears as they once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." So as not to be wording I have invested in a digital camera and continue my strolls through the local cemeteries .

Hello Mr. Prince, Amanda Wemp Grainger was my 3rd Great-Grandmother. Would you be willing to transfer management of her memorial to me? Thank you very much for your time. Patrick Flahive

Pauline A Doonan or Pauline A Fortmann Doonan do appear to one and the same . This problem comes up with a second marriage and we may leave both names. Undecided
Thanks for noticing- Dave

RE: Morrison
Thank you for the Obit reference clarification. I added it to John Morrison's Memorial.

Yes, I would be interested in finding out additional information on my Irish side.

RE: Gorsuch family grave photo
Thanks Norm,

No, I am researching for a good friend who is the relative. She is the granddaughter of Hazel Vida Butler who married Willard Osmun. Hazel's parents were Otha John Butler and wife Sarah Elizabeth Gorsuch, Find A Grave Memorial# 86167729 & were my friends g. grandparents.

Sarah Gorsuch Butler was the daughter of Thomas Bosley Gorsuch & wife Margaret Ann Murrow Gorsuch.

Thanks again!

Gorsuch family grave photo
Hi Norm,

Would you mind if I kept a copy of the Gorsuch family gravestone you submitted at

It would be for private use of the family.

Thanks for your work at this website!

Evelyn Dawson
I believe you are referring to a different Evelyn Dawson. There is a Social Security Death Index for my Evelyn and the years match the years on her gravestone.
