Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
I started out doing this for family and friends and have expanded it to others also. I love doing the research. If I have made any errors or you want anything added or changed please feel free to email me!

I am researching the Kappelman's (Kappelmann's), Holmes, Kersbergen's, Lasschuit's, Wichhart's, Rohde's, McGauvran's.

Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial page for corrections, additions or transfers .

Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any addional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please take a moment and visit my beautiful mother Katherine Kersbergen

Thank you for leaving her flowers.


Please take a moment and visit my handsome nephew Frazier Rohde

Thank you for leaving Frazier flowers.


***PLEASE NOTE: "Real life" is taking up a lot of my time lately, so please understand if it takes me days or even weeks to respond to you. Thank you! :)***

You sent some edits for this person. One has to do with birth and another parents. Are you sure about the parents? Her mother would have been 52 when she was born. In the 1900 census I found, in Marion county,

Gerrit Koopmans Head M 37 Iowa
Jane Koopmans Wife F 31 Iowa
Nellie A Koopmans Daughter F 13 Kansas

The last name and Kansas birth match but not the parents. Your father would have already been dead. Please confirm (with evidence).

Hi Cindy,

My husband and I searched for William Kappelman today at PineHill Cemetery in Des Moines. We were able to find stones for Maude, Wesley and an F. Fern Kappelman but not for William. We will continue to search :).

Have a great night!

Hi Cindy,
I have done the research on Charles #21402683 and found that his mother Evelyn Conjurski #11751655 as notified of his death in Vietnam. She is buried next to him. Please link. I have added it to the Edit tab. Still looking for Father. Also he was orginally from Michigan.
Thanks for helping,

Henry C. Poese
I do not believe Henry C. Poese is buried in St. Paul's Cemetery in Concordia. He is buried in St. Matthew's Cemetery in Ernestville, MO.
