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 family history.!
I do some research on Muscatine Co, Iowa website, and Ancestry before adding information but I always find typo, mis-spellings of names and incorrect dates.

Also some information is 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.

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 I have also taken photos of all headstones at Parr.
Please send me ANY information concerning persons buried at Parr Cemetery .

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

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

Spelling of Teter
Thank you for the information and suggested spelling for my g-great grandmother Mary Teter Hare. I have found through my research that her last name will be found spelled in many different ways. The name is derived from the first immigrant to the Americas, Jon Jeorg Dieter, who arrived in the early 1700's. Teeter is one of the more common deviations. Others include: Teteer, Teeteer, Teater, etc.

There are some inconsistencies to the publication which you quoted. First, Jacob Hare, Mary's husband, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1781. His father, and especially his grand father, had been aligned with the Tories during the Revolutionary War, and basically were quite rudely asked to leave Pennsylvania. (His grand father Jacob had his ears cropped and property confiscated.) The family eventually ended up in Ohio, where Jacob met Mary, and wed in Ross county in 1808.

Though Jacob was not a millionaire at the time of his death in 1860, he was very well to do and did leave much of estate to the City of Columbus. Of course by today's standards he would he would be considered a multi millionaire.

Jacob and Mary's third child, Abraham was first married to a Miss. Sarah Olmsted, in Madison county, Ohio, who died shortly after. He married his second wife Miss. Emeline Austin, in Muscatine. This marriage produced six children, of which only two survived infancy.

Abram was still a resident of West Jefferson, Madison county, Ohio in 1840. It was later that year that he left his son Danforth with his in-laws and removed to Muscatine to set up permanent residence.

You left a note on his memorial stating that it was in your grand daughters direct line. I too am in his direct line and would love to tie in our two informations together!

I see we share some family. Stobie Wm Jr and Mariolive are my daughter's grandparents. Stobie, Wm Sr and Marie Niemczyk are her great grandparents. I have a tree on ancestry, do you have access? Would be happy to share what I have.

RE: Charles Cotner
I keep trying to send you an answer but something is wrong with my computer.
If you live in the DFW area, call me at 817.561.2033.
Eldora Jane Hunter Cotner was married to Charlie Thomas Cotner. Nellie Jane was one of their children.
this was Charlies 2nd marriage.
They are buried in Krum TX "Jackson Cem".
Eldora isn"t buried in the Cotner plot.
She is buried about 40 yards north of the Cotner plot and is across the street from where my Mother is buried. Alma Delorse Cotner Graham.

I see messages(flowers) on several Parker family members pages indicating you have them in your tree. I looked at your bio and don't see any references to Parkers. I am related to Amanda Parker who married Stephen E Pettis and later Willis K Criswell. If you have info on Amanda, particularly her burial site, please contact me. Thanks.

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,
