|Bio and Links|
This has been my hobby for over seven years, started long before I discovered any websites for posting them.|
I find myself concentrating on the older, broken, unreadable tombstones, the ones that, because of layers of mold, lichen and grime, are so obscure that people tend to walk right past them. I get more satisfaction uncovering a lost individual's stone than I do photographing huge monuments that will be around for a thousand years and those more modern ones of the men whose bones have partially disintegrated while still clothed in the everlasting polyester suits that they were buried in!

I believe her maiden name is CLEMENS. She is related to Eva GROMMERSCH (Clemens). I can Not get the correct connection because she came over on the Charles Cooper 4 Jun 1857 with a John Clemen 55y/o and a John Clemens 23 y/o. However Eva Clemens was here to marry 1855 to John GROMMERSCH. In the Iowa 1855 census she was in another John CLEMENS b1812 household. Since they all ended up in Iowa near each other it makes sence they are related. Edna Frances Hauptman
Thanks so much for your transfer of my family's memorials. I appreciate your having built them and I'll be sure to maintain them well.

|Little Fir||Burgin/Rhines Photos|
I love the picture you posted on several of the memorials that was taken after Alva Burgin's funeral. I had never seen it before. The people in the photo are named but no identity is given to the photo (of a man) which hangs behind the group. I'm guessing it is Alvin Burgin, is that correct? If so he surely resembles his brother Uri, who was my great grandfather. Do you know if there are any of those books available for sale that the photo appeared in?

No problem! Thanks for the quick response.
I think that the memorial ID #s for the two men are like one number different from each other. We have it all straight now, that's what matters! Thanks for your help! Janet

Thanks for adding the marker transcription along with the other information. (The stone is a little hard to read for some of us.)

|Susan (Klein) Keppler||Arthur Michel|
I believe that this person is Alfred Michel. which is the name on the photo of the stone that is in the photo in findagrave. This is my friends grandfather.
Arthur's wife is Margaret E Michel buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Key West, Dubuque, Iowa. Her memorial number is #72091115.
I would appreciate it if you could please add these corrections.
|merel||George Earl Denton|
Thank you very much for updating his memorial.
