Want a transfer?
Ask, I'm not a memorial hog.
But only ask if you are going to do updates to the memorial.

ALWAYS check all information for accuracy before adding to your famliy history.!
I do some reseach on Muscatine Co, Ia. and Ancestry before adding information but I always find typo, mis-spellings and incorrect dates.

Also taken from other researchers, Obits,bios and census.

PLEASE let me know if you see any mistakes.

I do the best to add what I can find on the person I entered. Some from my own records some from other internet sites.

My favorite are families from Muscatine Co, Iowa.

PARR CEMETERY in Pleasant Prairie, Muscatine Co, Iowa. I have entered and am trying to connect all families. Please send me ANY information concerning persons buried at Parr Cemetery .

ST JOSEPHS CEMETERY Kettle River, Carlton Co. MN
I think I have entered all burials here.
THANKS to "Sun shine to you" Find A Grave Photo volunteer,she entered all known headstones here.

I hope that all this work has helped you connect to your family. Pass it on.
Happy Hunting

The Sherwood that is linked as the older Sherwood's son was actually his grandson. His actual son (also named was born in 1926 and passed in 2004 and is also buried in the same cemetery. The middle Sherwood was my first cousin's maternal grandfather and I'm working on her tree and just caught that. Just thought I'd pass it on to you.

Best regards,

Dave Coleman

RE: Transfers
You're welcome!
I'm more than happy to transfer relatives. Last year when I joined the site I saw only a handful of entries in cemeteries where relatives are buried, so I took pictures of the entire cemetery and loaded them on here. This information isn't mine, it's just a way to share information so people can find where relatives are. I am glad that the memorials I added are now in the hands of family to care for and let future generations know a little bit more about them.

Asa Turner / Martha Ann FAILES Burch
Collene, I came across a note dated 29 Apr. 2012 on Asa Turner's Find A Grave Memorial indicating you would like to share info on this family line. I am a direct desendant of Harvey D Failes, my mother's father. who is was either a brother or 1/2 brother to Martha.
Referring you to the MOORE Family Tree I maintain on Ancestry for more details. My husband and I have one Ancestry ownership:mitchcooper17, I get messages. (I just share this because it can be a bit confusing sometimes to get a message with my husbands name instead of my own.)

I returned from Apple Springs TX a few days ago. I am very worried about the condition of Failes headstones. Do you know if Martha married a 2nd time? What is your interest in the FAILES surname? I look forward to hearing from you.
Respectfully, Laura Moore (1955)

Can I get back to you on this transfer? I wanted to research her Gerlach linage to see if we are related.

Harker / Reng

Sorry for slow response but unfortunately I had a malware attack and lost a great deal of info. The family that I am looking for is parents of Charles Edgar (wife Fora BURBECK) Harker. Charles was born in Muscatine 1862 and died in Sac City in 1937, his parents are NJ & OH but are not sure of them. Once I started checking I did find that the parents are most likely Lemuel & Rachel WASHBURN Harker.

Quite often I find that you have to go way back in time to find the current family. I do have info on decendants of Charles & Flora and that is actually my focus of research. My "son" is 2nd great grandson of Charles & Flora and is trying to locate family as he knows little of them or that of his family history.

Thank you for your offer of assistance.

Harker / Reng Family
Have been family historian for my family for going on 50 years and now my adopted-son, Gerry Reng, has asked me to help him in connecting him to his familys history. Noticed in Find A Grave that you have Harker in your family tree. Possibly we could exchange some information on decendants of Vera, daughter of Clarence & Iva GERRY Harker, both born in Sac County IA and both passed in Anacortes WA. Gerry is their g-grandson.
