Bio and Links
I will transfer graves if you specificaly tell me how your related, dont ask if you are only going to say he/she is related to me.

A portion of the of the memorials listed here are from records which I ran across in research of my own family, and wanted to give them a spot to be remembered as well. Others were given to my by FAG to help maintain after the passing of a dear archivist. I appreciate your help in correcting and improving any memorials I have listed.
If you find mistakes or want me to make additions, please use the edit tab on the memorial to let me know. I will gladly make corrections/additions. Please send memorial numbers when requesting links.

Please observe the livings right to privacy. When posting obituaries with memorials I ask that you not publish the survivors listed unless of course you can verify that all survivors have passed as well.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.

Schabilion #7386096
Very extensive work you have done--bravo. I'd like to pass along a correction on behalf of my wife's great grandmother Duchien Alma Rahmiller Schabilion memorial # 7386096: her maiden name was not Rahmiller, but Rawhouser. Her father, Joel Rawhouser, is memorial # 7331835 pictured on the tombstone is his wife Martha Washington Sargent Rawhouser. I can also pass along their birth dates: Joel born 1818 and Martha born 1834.
Are you from Columbus City, Iowa area? Thank you very much, a Find A Grave member.

Hooked On Family
Mahala Bennett
Hello, Connie.

Happy holidays! Hope you are enjoying all the preparations.

I am married to Bruce Buxton (great grandson of Mary Mariam Bennett Goldner and John August Goldner). We have connected before.

We live in Waverly, Iowa. I would enjoy getting together and to look at family connections.

I am looking for Mary's mother (Mahala Bennett)'s maiden name and parents. Do you know this information?

I have her married to David Bennett (1839-1910), but family trees are all different.

Some have her as Mahala Hough (1832-1850) which isn't possible if she is the mother of 7 children.

Some have her 1840-1850 which is even less possible as a MOTHER! Ugh

Hmmmmm, any ideas?

You can email me at

Thanks, Connie.

Aringdale, Columbus City IA
Hi Connie,
Two of your memorials, John Beverly Aringdale (5786359) and Mahala Hopper (59626964) are my g-g-g-grandparents. A third memorial, their daughter Rebecca Aringdale Tallant Bancroft (9285874) is my g-g-grandmother. They are all buried in Columbus City.

I saw your note about completing the photography of the Columbus City cemetery. My brother visited the cemetery on 29 Aug 2012, and despite much searching and combing through the record book in the cemetery office, was not able to locate the graves of John & Mahala. Do you have any further information about them? (My brother did find Rebecca's gravestone and took a photograph of it.)

I would be happy to take custody of these three memorial records.

Best regards,

I made a mistake. This man's wife was Anna Moore, not Gerturde Lathrop Manley.
