Bio and Links
I am a Story County, Iowa genealogist as well as a family genealogist. As a member of the Nevada Community Historical Society, I undertook to research the family history of the people who established the properties owned by the historical society and the project expanded from there.

I have been doing genealogy since I was teenager and love the research opportunities and record keeping computerized genealogy affords.

This stone is quite impressive. I couldn't get it to go upright, however. I am concerned because I could see tire tracks over the top, and assume that the mowers are just driving over the top. I'm afraid that in time, they'll break it, not to mention that I'm sure it cost a lot and it is disrespectful to do that. I wonder about putting plantings around it and a small fence. Is there any family that you know of? What do you think? I don't think telling them to not drive over it will work. There are quite a few ferns & lilies of the valley plantings nearby that could maybe be transplanted.

I see you found a couple of graves I couldn't find! That shows the master, and who's the novice. Thank you. I finished the rest of the requests today, but found a few that are missing and requested them so they could be documented. I also photographed a Wintermeyer marker in section 31 which didn't come up on the Nevada Cemetery site for some reason. It is a large double marker for Emmor who died in 1968. His wife, Fay, is not marked as deceased, but I think I snapped the photo because it was freshly dug. I also took a photo of Janice Lee Steward, and saw you put in a request for her husband. She still had funeral flowers on the site, but no Find A Grave yet. I still would love to meet you and get some pointers since I have just started taking photos. I have found it difficult, but good exercise. I love challenges, and this certainly is one. I thought you would just jump out of the car, snap this pic, and take off! NOT THE CASE!!! But, I am learning the Nevada Cemetery which will help. Thank you for your help.
