Elizabeth Tate
Sue,
Thank you very much for the info/links about Elizabeth Tate. Because I noticed that copyright ownership of the bio evidently belongs to the University of Iowa I don't think it wise for me to copy and paste it to her bio, but I did update the memorial to note where the information could be found. I wish we were allowed to put in outside links for such a purpose. She seems to have led a very interesting life! I will print the story out, though, and put in in the family group sheet collection in the Fairfield Library so at least it is available that way.

Richard

Sorry 'bout that - but rest assured - I will find his marker - I have totally photographed the cemetery, it's just a LOT of photos to comb through. Stay tuned!

RE: Nettie
Nettie actually had children by her first husband, Walter Wilber Berns as well as with my great grandfather Martin Luther Hoyt, but was married to Frank Wolter last so not sure it really matters as long as I can find her :-). Are any of her husbands buried in the same cemetery? If so, I'd probably use them and mention the others in the write up. Perhaps someday the site will allow for adding exes, especially when there are children by each of them.

Almost forgot, I would be happy to have her site transferred to me and thank you for making your way out there to take the photo.
