I live in southeastern Washington state. I enjoy doing genealogy for my family and friends. We travel a lot, so we stop at cemeteries where we have family buried. I am way behind in getting the photos posted.

RE: George Melmer
I'm not sure what you mean by -- I really appreciate knowing that there is no stone for all the others. I will cancel the request in find a grave --

Which request has no stone? Please don't cancel any for now.

RE: George Melmer
You're welcome.
One of my ancestors is buried in G450 poor ground, that's why I had the photo.
Two of the other Melmer requests - Fannie and George are in Section C3 - the same as the memorial for George that I entered. Is Fannie the wife of that George? Looking at my map, that may be the same plot as George. The other George in grave 193 is several rows behind.
Emma is in Section B2/grave 970.
I'll see what I can find.

Did you want me to transfer 'my' George to you?

I looked real close at his tombstone pic and compared it to the obit below. The tombstone actually says he died in 1931. It was real easy to see a 4 instead of a 1.
MESSAGE: (#449226) Davis, John 1867-1931

AUTHOR: Sharyl Ferrall
DATE: 6/19/2013 at 14:47:34


John Davis, youngest son of John and Mary Davis, was born November 8, 1867, on
the farm near Springfield school, south of Postville, Iowa, and passed away at
his farm home, east of Postville, in Post township, on Thursday, June 18,
1931, his demise following injuries received in a fall from the hay mow in his
barn on the Monday previous.

On January 17, 1892, he married Florence Simpson, and they established their
home on the farm east of Postville, where they have lived ever since, with the
exception of three years, 1905 to 1908, spent in Postville.

In boyhood Mr. Davis joined the Bethel United Brethren church where he
retained membership until a few years ago, when he became a member of the
Community Presbyterian church of Postville.

For nearly twenty-five years he was a member of the Postville Odd Fellows
Lodge and was also a member of the Modern Woodmen of America.

Mr. Davis is survived by his wife and their four children, Ralph of
Minneapolis; Mrs. Hazel Hill of Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs. Myrtle Hall and
Harry, of Postville; and by two grandchildren, Jean and Donald Davis; and by
two sisters, Mrs. Eliza Donaldson and Mrs. Millie Johnson, both of Los
Angeles, Calif.

John Davis was a true and upright man, beloved in his home and respected and
honored in his community. The sympathy of a host of friends is extended to his
bereaved family.

The funeral was held last Saturday afternoon at two-thirty from the Community
Presbyterian church in this city, Rev. R.F. Galloway officiating, and was
largely attended. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful.

Upwards of forty members of Postville Lodge No. 707, I.O.O.F., attended the
funeral in a body and had charge of the burial service at Grand Meadow
cemetery, where interment was made.

Hi, I looked through all the pictures of St.
Francis Cem.[I took pictures of the whole cem.]
and I couldn't find Loren Shull. I did however find a Belinda Shull B: 1828 D: 1895. She was alone in this area, so my guess is that the stones are covered up. Sorry I couldn't find Loren Shull.

Thank-you for doing an excellent job on taking a photo of James Baker temporary marker.

I was wondering being there aren't any dates would you mind looking at the photo on the bottom and read the funeral name.

I would like to have this information so I can find out the dates and birth and death, please.

Thanks again,
Michele Ball
