Bio and Links
Everyone deserves to be remembered.

My goal is to photograph all the cemeteries in Floyd County Iowa. When I photograph the grave of someone I've known during my lifetime I take a moment to remember them. Some I haven't thought about in years and it's like "Wow, I remember you" and all the special things about that person pop into my head.
I want to give a shout out to my son for going with me to the cemeteries and helping to take photos. It's very much appreciated.

Cemeteries that still need photographing:
If you find that I am managing a memorial for a close family member and you want to manage it, just let me know and I will happy to transfer it to you.

Please feel free to use the photo that I have added to a family member's memorial for your personal use. Please do NOT add my photos to other fag memorials without giving proper credit to me.
If anyone would care to make a small donation to the St. Charles/Riverside Cemetery for their gravestone cleaning and restoration project it would be most appreciated as it is a non-profit cemetery.

Donations can be sent to the Riverside Cemetery Association at 59 Riverside Drive, Charles City, Iowa 50616. Please indicate that it is for the gravestone and restoration project.

William E Tibbits
Chris, I just want to let you know that the William E Tibbits that you have listed for Evergreen Cemetery at Rudd is actually buried at St Joseph Cemetery in Mason City with his wife Mae. You show Harold E. Tibbits' headstone photo with William E Tibbits name. It actually is Harold E. Tibbits who is bured at Evergreen in Rudd. Harold and William are brothers and close in age so the confusion is understandable.

I am a descendent of William Vandeventer. I read with interest that he was not necessarily buried in a cemetery but on the banks in Kane county. How did you figure something like that out? I have been searching in vane for three years for another relative who may have died in Kane County Il & I am wondering if non cemetery burials are that common & what records do I look for or in to find him? I am hoping the e-mail address of pops up as my contact info. That's where a response needs to go. Thanks Pam
