I am an avid genealogy/history buff who was born and raised in Northwest Iowa, but now live in Northern California. I grew up in a small town where we always took shortcuts through the cemetery on the way home from school. The memorials always intrugued me, especially the older ones. |
As I continue working on ALL my family histories I have found findagrave to be very helpful in locating family members. It is especially helpful to me when the obituaries are posted and I am making it my personal goal to help provide obituaries for the cemeteries I am most connected with in Iowa. If I send you an obituary transcript, please feel free to share it.
Findagrave provides a very valuable service to history and genealogy researchers. 20 years ago I walked the Dedham Cemetery in Iowa with my mom; this year I went back and discovered that many of the stones I photographed then have disappeared or are illegible. Such a shame, but time marches on. To have this information recorded on findagrave insures that those who came before us live on.
I welcome corrections/additions to memorials I have posted and will be happy to transfer those to whom I am not related to those who are direct descendents.

The Felkeys are not part of my research.
I found my grandmothers husband, Fred Goodge in the Armstrong cemetery. One or more of his wives is buried beside him with no marker. He is related to the Coulsons so I do that family too. Fred was unlucky enough to have 5 wives, all of whom died before he did. My grandmother was his last wife.
When I was in Armstrong, I took pictures of several other stones in that cemetery and a few others.
Freds first wife, and mother to his children, was Susan Wood. I have entered all the Wood memorials (stones) I have found into Find A Grave but still have not linked her to any of them. Isn't genealogy fun!!
Thanks so much for all the work you do! Georgea
Thanks for all the Felkey obituaries, etc. Are you doing the whole Armstrong cemetery? That is a big job! Thanks. Georgea
