Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 45 years and my husband, Roy, and I are also working on a project to identify and photograph burial places of Civil War veterans in Iowa. He is the State Graves Registration Officer for the Iowa Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW).

If you are a relative of someone I have posted a memorial for--that is NOT a relative of mine--I would be glad to transfer management to you. I do have a personal policy of NOT transferring memorials to anyone who is listed as Anonymous, though.

Please feel free to use my photos as you like, but I would appreciate photo credit if you use them on another website.

If you have a comment, question,or correction to any of my Memorials, please use the Edit on the Memorial page. It is much easier to find the correct person that way. Additions and corrections which are phrased rudely as demands may be ignored.

regarding Find A Grave Memorial# 93313584 Mathew Lewis
Hello Linda,

I believe this Mathew (Matthew) Lewis may be my 2nd great grandfather. I am just trying to confirm where the birth and death data you listed for this record were found since they don't seem to be on the headstone. These grandparents have been pretty elusive for me and I'm trying to cross check sources and make sure I'm not jumping to easy conclusions.

Thank you so much for taking the time to collect and post these listing.

RE: Byram Surber
Hi, I am not a family member, so would rather not have him.
My husband's gr,grt grandmother (Ruth Maria Surber Whited) was his aunt.

Byram's parents:

Adam Surber brother to Andrew Surber and

Eliza Harrell, sister to Andrew's wife, Eady Harrell.

Andrew & Eady were Ruth's parents. We cannot find their graves.

as per Frank Youmans, the son could not have been old enough to be in the Civil War. This guy was born in 1856 and WOULD have been old enough. The transcription is from the stone.

Walter Stott, Mem.# 130652855. I found his information on the WPA data list, submitted June 2004. W.G. Stott, has no dates, but I found and took a photo of his stone. His daughter Rose is also on the stone. Stone says Walter Stott. Sheet also says Civil War veteran, Co.I 89th NY infantry - lot 60.

RE: Locke Photo at Kensett
Linda, Their are 3 more Civil War vets in the Kensett cemetery that are not recognized. Maybe you can check them out. Charles Fred Jewett #59889733, Theron Finch #66330355, Iver Iverson Bergh #20085629. The cemetery has spelled his name wrong - Berch. I edited it, but it hasn't changed as of yet.
