Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Gadsden, Alabama, in 1981. I currently live in Bettendorf, Iowa, with my wife, two kids, three rodents, five guppies, and one cory catfish. I'm an amateur actor, and sometimes professional theatre technician. I'm an organizer and writer/director for a semi-regular living history event in local historic cemetery Oakdale Memorial Gardens. I am also in the process of nominating Oakdale to the National Register of Historic Places.

I'm also a genealogy buff, researching the following families:
Crow/Crowe, Couch, Oliver, West, Fenn/Fann, Humphries, Fleming, Scott, Petree/Petri, Mayer, Zimmerman, Smith, Sevier/Xavier Goode/Good/Goad, Ray, Henry, and McKeme (?) in the Southeast U.S. (AL, TN, NC, GA, VA, SC, AR) New England (PA, MA), England, France, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, and Spain.
Hatton, Doyle, Green, Fritsch, and Thomas in the Midwest (MO, IL, KY), Virginia, Ireland, and Germany.

I am also willing to do limited genealogical research in Scott County, Iowa. E-mail me for info.

So Sorry for others out there.
So Sorry
Dustin I am so very sorry that you had to receive that nasty message from that man about Gov. Wallace memorial.

I too, am a volunteer and put in many many hours adding memorials and headstone photos...then to get a mean person sending a tasteless message , how hurtful.

I am grateful for you time and effort, thanks for what you do .

A volunteer, Collene

Governor George C. Wallace's Obituary
You have done a grave disservice to a great man by your scanty and ill written obituary. You have also disrespected him by not listing him as GOVERNOR of the State of Alabama, which is the highest office he attained. He also never used the appellation "Jr." I sense more than a little "left leaning" hostility in your threadbare obituary of this great man. I will see what I can do to get this matter rectified.

Hugo Weidenpesch
Dear Dustin:

Thanks so much for capturing the Weidenpesch graves in Oakdale.

I discovered this gravesite several years ago and always meant to take a photo of it. You have taken care of that for me.

I'm not related to the Weidenpesch's, but I think its a very interesting tombstone.

I live across the street from Oakdale and love walking through it. Its a neat place.

Kind regards,
Karen Schebler

Great newspaper article on you. Quad-City Times Sunday June 14??

Wish they'd done more on the application process and what you had to do to get Oakdale Memorial Gardens into the National Register of Historic Places.

I know you put a lot of time into this designation.

And I salute Deb, the office mgr. and board member, for supporting and helping you.
Thank you.
