Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Iowa 'farm girl'. I still live in Iowa, just not on the farm!

Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave, and have been hooked on this site ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links. I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

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.

Forgive me for not yet having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries do not list burial or disposition details.

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

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

I try to make edit requests In a timely manner.

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. Feel free to contact me.

I have taken gravestone photos of these entire cemeteries, although I may not have recent burials. Some stones are photographed, but are not readable, so may not be matched with a memorial. All have been posted for:
Paton Cemetery - Paton, Iowa
Dawson Cemetery near Paton, Iowa
Antioch - Clarksville, Iowa
Lynwood - Clarksville, Iowa
Old Town - Clarksville, Iowa
Pleasant Valley - Clarksville, Iowa
Butler Center - Butler County, Iowa
St. Mary's Catholic - Greene, Iowa

I added many photos for McCallsburg Cemetery and Rose Hill Cemetery in Greene, Iowa. I will be taking more photos when possible.

My wonderful Jiffy has crossed the "Rainbow Bridge". I would love it if you stopped by her memorial. Thanks so much! 😊

Anna June Severs

I saw on your profile page that you appreciate knowing when there are errors on memorials. I noticed a letter missing on one, Anna June Piper Severs (#41855346). Her maiden name should be spelled Pieper. She is my 2x great aunt and I have included her obituary as reference

Thank you so much for all you do on this site!

RE: Eddie Shelgren
I am glad that you were happy with the Shelgren grave photo. I find that when I stand directly in front I capture myself in the reflection. I am now "hooked" on this site,too. I want my kids to be able to visualize and know these relatives before they are lost to history. Have a good day.Estockdale

Totally understand how busy you are right now. Your life takes precedence. We've been through the marriages many times and it takes a lot of time to get them ready. Good luck and God Bless the Wedding Couple.

RE: Ruth Hunter
Thanks so much. I can't fins my notes now to look at her grave again. Do you remember where Ruth Hunter is? I wouldn't have any McBride relatives there, I don't think, they were all from Cresco, Riceville area. thanks, Barb
Oh & I have an old photo of her I will try to scan & get up there. She is my grandpa's sister. I don't remember her at all but would sure be nice to find her kids. Barb

RE: Emily Dailey
Emily Dailey is a very distant relative, and I'm finding it difficult to locate my record. Could you give me her memorial number please.

Linda B Simpson
You have an entry in Greenwood Cemetery in Nashua for Linda B Simpson. The date of death shows 1931, but according to the Greenwood Directory it should be 1954. I know she was alive in 1941 per a newspaper clipping re a family reunion. Her husband, David, did die in 1931. Do you, by chance, have photos?
