Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be willing to take photos anywhere in Lee County, Iowa. Right now, my project is to photograph all of Elmwood & City Cemeteries in Fort Madison, on my lunch hour. Slow going, but someday I'll get there. Update - what started out as just intending to photograph has turned into a lot of linking and research. I can't help myself! If any of these are your relatives, I'll be glad to transfer to you, even if it is out of the guidelines, if I'm not a direct ancestor. Then we'll discuss it.. LOL Getting close to being done with Elmwood, working some on City now too! Also finishing up what I started several years ago at Fairview. I don't want any of these people to be forgotten. Now going through old funeral home records (which have a lot of info not on stones) and newspapers to get more info on people that don't have stones, or adding more info to the records.

RE: Sheldahl
You are very welcome. I would think if you call the cemetery office they could tell you when and if she really was moved here.

Stephen L Kuhlmeier - Gethsemane Cemetery
Thanks for the info re: Stephen L Kuhlmeier being buried at Gethsemane Cemetery (vice Fort Madison City Cemetery). I have created a new memorial for him (at Gethsemane) and requested a photo. I have no records to indicate where his parents are buried. If you accept my request to photograph his headstone at Gethsemane, could you look for his parents as well? Here is the info I have for them:

Franz Stephan "Steve" Kuhlmeier
Your great grandfatherBirth 13 Jan 1846 in Delbruck, Kreis Paderborn, Provinz Westfalen, Konigreich Preusen, Germany
Death 29 Sep 1923 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa, USA

Anna "Annie" Kuhlmeier
Your great grandmotherBirth 05 Dec 1853 in Delbrueck, Westfalen, Prussia (Germany)
Death 17 Jan 1937 in Davenport, Iowa, USA

Thank you!

Anthony Smith
Thank you so very much for posting the gravestone photos for Anthony and Elizabeth Smith, and two of their sons. I am helping a great-great granddaughter of theirs link her ancestors and add biographical information on memorials, and she will be so grateful for your efforts. I have sent you an edit (and earlier this week an email) with the 1895 obituary of Mary Jane Cutler (117441132) and am hoping you can add it to her memorial. Thank you in advance.
