I was born in southwest Iowa and currently live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Both sides of my family have strong "roots" in Fremont and Page County, Iowa, which is where I've taken the majority of the photos I've added to FindAGrave. Civil War veterans in SW Iowa and the 4th Iowa Cavalry are recent interests.
Simply taking a picture of a headstone is difficult for me. I use various sources to fill in the dash between the dates. If I've made mistakes feel free to send me corrections, or additions. I know that exact dates and places of birth and death, family relationships, obituaries, burial plots, etc. can be important sources of information. I will add information to any memorial I've created. I am more than willing to transfer memorials if they are not my relatives.
If I didn't create a memorial but did upload a photo of the headstone, click on the headstone photo for additional information. I've given up on suggesting edits and/or corrections to the creator of the memorial.
Anyone may use any of my headstone photos from Find A Grave for their own family research.
Transfer & thank you Hello again, Thank you for your generosity in transferring: Ciddia Ann Coomes Fender # 76672572 to my care.

With sincerest appreciation, Marcia # 47059326
RE: 69429389 Laird Houts I was dancing all over the house when I saw in writing the obituaries for both great grandparents!! I don't even dance....

RE: John W Akers. You are welcome. However, I want you to know that this is not a picture of his headstone. It is a memorial to several vets with his name on it. I did not find a headstone, probably because he died a prisoner of war. Carolyn
