Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 'farm girl' who grew up and still live in Iowa.

I am trying to leave a legacy on Find a Grave for my children and grandchildren, and for others as well, by making family stories and links.

I found my great grandmother's headstone on Find a Grave quite by accident and have been hooked on this site ever since.

I enjoy helping others find relatives' and friends' resting places. I have posted many memorials and photos from various cemeteries so others can gather data.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

I am not interested in amassing large numbers of memorials. I am interested in contributing data and connecting family members.

Forgive me for not yet having all burial locations takes time to research. Also, some mortuaries do not list burial or disposition details in their obituaries now, so there exists some unknowns.

I do transfer memorials if you have information to add, unless it is for my relative.

I often try to add information and family links by researching a family. This takes time, so some memorials I've created are not done.

Please let me know if there is an error so it can be corrected. I want to have true and appropriate information.

I usually make edit requests the same day. I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Contact me using the edit and SAC tab on any of my memorials. I do not post my email address.

RE: Meyer-Nahnsen edit
Thank you for checking into this. I'm almost 100% sure that William and Maria are the correct parents for Mary. There is a blog I came across called A Rootdigger. This person has a book about the Meyer family. There is an obit for a J.H. William Meyer that has some good information. The blog is dated Saturday August 2, 2008.
I will do more research on this. Then if I can show proof for sure, we can link Mary to her parents.
Thanks again. :)

George A Jenkins
Hi, The George Jenkins in the 1910 census can not be the same one in the 1900 census for two reasons:
1. The gravestone says he died in 1904
2 Not only is the age wrong but in 1900 his parents were born in Pennsylvania and Illinois and in the 1910 census they were both born in Ohio. So they have to be two different people... but Sylvia and Orville do appear to be the same people and it is the same town.... Any possibility that she married one of his cousins with the same name???

RE: Jeffrey Clark
Dear Marilyn, thank you for your kind comments regarding little Jeffery's headstone. It's my delight to take these photographs for you and am happy you are pleased with the results.

Hi, again!
After all the work we did together in Lawler, it's nice to see your "smiling face" over in Greene!
Thanks for all the help getting the Maxson information added. I'm still hunting for the burial information for George Maxson's wife so we can get all those children linked to their mother. I have a feeling she must be nearby but just haven't had luck figuring it out yet.
Keep up the good work.
Here's to teamwork!

RE: Dennis Day
Hello. Nice to hear from you and thank you so much for your condolences regarding my cousin Dennis Day. His mother was my dad's younger sister. She lived with us for awhile when she was a teenager and helped take care of me and my sister. I had just reconnected with Dennis through our interest in genealogy about two years ago. He was a very avid genealogist but he made a lot of assumptions without historical documentation. So, be wary if he sent you information without documentation. I just returned from Scotland where my sister and another cousin and I attended the Highland Games in Lochearnhead and conducted family research. Our family (McLeran/MacLaren)has resided at Loch Earn and Loch Tay since the 1500's. It was a gorgeous area and we were able to meet up with lots of our clan at the games.
Again, thank you for your kind note. Happy ancestor hunting!
