I prefer not to add birthdates calculated from age/death date on stone. To many chances for errors.

My name is Jon Purcell. I am indexing Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registrations. I uploaded a record to Find-A-Grave for Erwin Thompson (87986672). I hope the information is useful and the upload is okay.

Would you consider a transfer of this memorial Hannah Louise Burt Jamison, # 79662033 to me?

I don't really need the names of their children if they are still living. If you would like that information in their biography would be glad to enter it.
My wife and I went through Graceland Cemetery because we knew they were hundreds and turned out to be thousands of burials there had not been entered into Find A Grave.
We live in Knoxville so photographed every stone over a period of time. My wife mainly then checked at the library for obituaries or other information on them. Just like to honor those who have gone before us. A number of family members have found them here now and claimed them or added to what we found. Regards, Ron

Thanks for the obituaries. They have been entered and the one for Elsie helped me locate her parents. Have sent an edit request to that contributor.

Thank you for posting a photo of the headstone of my GG uncle who died as prisoner of Civil War and is buried in the Rock Island Confederate Cemetery. Would you allow me to put this photo on my ancestry.com tree? I will, of course, give you proper credit. Thank you.

|pmiller428||Marshall Jamison - Hartford, Iowa|
I have an obit for my distant cousin Marshall Jamison 79662257.
Marshall Jamison was born 1 February 1818 in Potosi, Washington Co, MO, the second of 11 children born to Isaac Webster and Mary Polly Jamison, nee Edgar. He was educated to be a doctor. At Richmond Mo on 21 October 1845, he married Mary Montague Carpenter who was born 18 December 1823 in Plymouth, Vermont. They lived in Boonville, MO when their first son, James Homer, was born 1 May 1848. Marshall was in the gold fields of California in 1849 and was fairly successful. After he returned to Boonville, MO, the family moved to Covington, KY. Marshall was a steamboat captain going up and down the Ohio River from Cincinnati, OH. Across the river at Covington, the second son, George Marshall Jamison was born 16 September 1852. Mary never recovered from the birth and died six months later. Marshall kept his wife in state three weeks in a vault awaiting the arrival of relatives. When the time of interment came and they opened the casket, the flesh fell from the bones of her that he loved so dearly. In pursuit of peace of mind, he left Covington with his two sons. He left by steamboat which sank and gave all on board a soaking; but he continued his way for Ford, Iowa to live near his two brothers-in-law, Charles H and James Carpenter. Marshall was a millwright then, had his own kiln for drying walnut and other lumber; he was also a carpenter and made his own furniture and that of others. Some pieces are still used today and are highly valuable. He was artistic and clever with a paintbrush. Marshall married for convenience shortly after arriving in Iowa. She too died. There may have been a child or two, raised by the wife's parents. A cousin of Marshall's first wife, Mary, became his third wife. She was Hannah Louise Burt born 15 February 1825 in Plymouth, Vermont. There were no children. The South River flowed through the farm where Marshall and Hannah lived. James Homer was drowned when he stepped into a hole while swimming with friends. This was on 10 May 1859 when he was 11 years old. Early in 1866, Marshall was seriously injured when loading a log on a sled pulled by a five-ox hitch. He pushed his son George out of the way and received a blow which resulted in his death after several months of suffering. Marshall died 10 November 1866, when he was 48 years old. Hannah Louise died 8 June 1905 of a heart attack. They are buried in the Hartford Iowa cemetery near James Homer and Carpenter relatives. From a notebook of George Marshall Jamison - - *it was on November 10, 1866 just as the sun was resting beneath the western horizon, I was at my dear father's dying bed. I looked at the people in the room. I looked at the old fireplace where I had so often sat with Father and enjoyed his tender care to me. I looked at his dying form, my uncle Charles H Carpenter sat by the bed, Father's hand in his. My stepmother stood at the head of his pillowed bed, she spoke to him (I do not know the words). He looked up to see her face and said, "it is going easy"; and looking as if some new scene had burst upon him, now he repeated Mary! Mary!" That was my mother's name. Had she been permitted go come and escort my dear Father and her husband in their young happy years?
Thank you for transferring her memorial to my care. I appreciate it.
