|Bio and Links|
Retired Navy Reserve officer as well as civil servant. Brought up in a very patriot family of Nelsons and have keen interest in genealogy. One continuing effort of mine is to document all cemeteries within York County, Virginia, and updating all current listing of graves in Find A Grave. If you know of family cemeteries in York County, not listed in Find A Grave, please contact me.|
During 2013 I added approximately 16,000 memorials to the Oakland Cemetery in Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa, where several of my ancestors are buried (Rankin, Irwin, & Thomasson). Two local ladies (Sue Steenberg-McDeid,#47899485 and DJG #47827011, are busy photographing and adding more memorials. There are 22,335 interments now recorded. The Lee County Geneaology organization records transcribed around 1969 was available online which I added. I realize original transcription errors exits and will be corrected as memorials are photographed. Another listing I used was the DeathCard listing. Still errors exist but a good source. I will be glad to transfer to family members any grave. My objective was to give you an opportunity to find your family not previously recorded in FIND A GRAVE. Note: I provided funeral record information to include vault type: ashes, urn, steel, concrete, cement, box (wood), Wilbert, Doric, styrofoam, paper, and wood. The term 'box' refers to a wooden casket/container which is less expensive to many families in the past.
