#16003401 Hannah Cahalan in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Iowa

I have been adding information and linking my family in Cerro Gordo County, many of whom you manage. I have noticed that none of the edits I have sent through have been accepted yet and was wondering if you are receiving them. I tried sending the note below to your email but it bounced back. I am including the note below for Hannah Cahalan:

Mason City Globe Gazette 5-31-1943

I just looked at the Stateline Cemetery, Northwood, Worth County, Iowa. My great grandfather Michael Sheehan was married to Margaret Dixon.

Margaret Dixon was the daughter of Walter Dixon and Caroline Pel.

Could the mother and father buried at Stateline Cemetery be Walter Dixon and Caroline Pel. Mother I have is #16310068 and father is Walter Dixon #16309978?

Could you tell me what you think?

Update for Anna Mary Johnson (# 20085684)
Regarding the memorial for Anna Mary Johnson ( The date on the tombstone is 1913, but the date on the memorial is 1964. Is it the wrong photo or the wrong date? You may want to check the edit request I submitted.
