Bio and Links
Bio Photo No one left behind.


If you have an EDIT to make to a memorial, please use the SUGGESTION link to provide your SOURCE, and hopefully a link to the correct info so I can review it.

Please don't get upset if your Edit is DENIED... there are so few choices (Approve, Decline, Ignore, I think).

I would rather leave off info, then provide inaccurate info. I don't believe we should assume things like places of birth and death based on burial, and so forth.

Or just a nice little note to check out the dates
on the photograph of the headstone will do.

Thank you for your help and understanding.


If I have added an obituary in the photo section of a memorial and you would like it removed, Please TRANSCRIBE it into the bio section, then let me know and I will remove it. Problem solved. Working together we can do much good.

You can find the newspaper reference by clicking on the image.

Currently I am on the "hunt" for missing obituaries and don't have time to transcribe each one of them.

Thank you for understanding again!!!

* Articles published before 1923: This is the easy case. Any news article published in the United States before 1923 is in the public domain and you can reprint or republish it in any form you’d like without any copyright concerns.


I will also do obituary look-ups for Ottumwa Courier 1932-1987.
