Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always happy to add additional information, create links, or make corrections to the memorials i have entered. I will try to do this as soon as possible. Please use the edit tab when sending the information.

If I make a mistake on a memorial, it's just that--a mistake. If you find a mistake, I'll do my very best to get it corrected.

You have permission to use of my gravestone photos. All I ask is that I be given credit for taking the photo.

An explanation for some of the causes of death:

Bright's Disease - Any of several forms of disease of the kidney attended with albumin in the urine, including especially acute and chronic nonsuppurative nephritis.

Catarrh of Brain/ Catarrh of Head/ Catarrh of Stomach/ Catarrh on the Breast/ Catarrk Pneumonia) - An inflammatory affection of any mucous membrane, in which there are congestion, swelling, and an alteration in the quantity and quality of mucous secreted. In America, especially, a chronic inflammation of, and hypersecretion from the membranes of nose or air passages. Also an acute influenza, resulting from a cold and attended with cough, thirst, lassitude and watery eyes; also, the cold itself. Catarrh Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue associated with catarrh and with marked evidences of inflammation of the bronchial membranes - often chronic.

Consumption - A progressive wasting away of the body, especially that attended upon pulmonary phthisis, called pulmonary consumption; hence pulmonary phthisis or tuberculosis

Diphtheria is a deadly disease prevalent in the 1920's and earlier. It is a serious bacterial infection. The toxin accumulates in the nasal passages and is spread by coughing and sneezing.

Scarlet fever is a childhood disease. It is a bacterial infection caused by specific bacteria and found in about 10 percent of persons with strep throat. Symptoms include high fever, a strawberry like tongue, and body rash. It can be prevented by habits of cleanliness - like hand washing.

Wm S Garrett FAG 22208410
In the Find A Grave bio for Wm S. Garrett, one of my ancestors, you mention his father as Henry Garrett and his mother as Mary Johnson. My research shows that his father was Henry Garrett but his mother was Judith Peers, their marriage 14 Feb 1803 shown in Virginia Select Marriages. (Henry's father, William Garrett was married to Mary Ann Johnson.) Except for the marriage source, I cannot completely claim that Judith Peers was the mother of all of Henry's children, but cannot find another marriage for him. If you have any source for Mary Johnson being his wife, I would be glad to know about it. Thank you, Mary Eldridge

Planalp Family
I've transferred the photographs to your newly minted Planalps: Henry, John and Margaret. I transferred the memorials of Clara, Fred and Infant Planalp to you as well.

Planalp Family
I have just posted the photographs of the Planalp family you requested: John, Henry, Margaret. They are not actually buried at Upper Blue Point, Poweshiek County, Iowa, but rather at Hickory Grove, Jasper County, Iowa. This would be a distance of c. 20 miles. I took the photos myself and attest the family is at Hickory Grove, along with Clara, Fred and Infant Son Planalp. If you should like to have them transferred, please let me know. Clio

RE: Wm Coulson photo
Thanks for getting back to me and giving permission to use the photo. His photo on the regimental roster was WILLIAM COLSON and he was 32 when he enlisted from Van Buren County on 3/13/1863. He is reported to have deserted from Davenport, IA on 7/15/1863 but was arrested and returned to the regiment. He served uneventfully for the next 2 years and then deserted again from Julesburg, CO but returned a month later - only to desert again 3 months later and did not return. This was 5 months after the war was over and many soldiers did the same thing. Later they were able to apply to have their status changed to an honorable discharge so they could get medical and pension benefits. That's about all I know about him. Anything you may wish to share about him would be much appreciated. Til later - Dean Knudsen

Charles & Octavia Springer
Hi Geo,
I checked my Buena Vista Cemetery book and Charles and Octavia Springer they are buried in the Storm Lake cemetery not B. V. Memorial. You had made a request for them in B. V. Memorial. Hope this helps. Kris.

Wm Coulson photo
Hello Geo,
I am researching the men of the 7th Iowa Cavalry and recently came across a photo you had posted on Find A Grave. I wonder if you would mind if I were to ask a few questions? Is Wm Coulson the man with the white beard? Do you happen to be a descendent of him? Would you mind if I added his photo to my collection of 7th Iowa Cav veterans?, with the possibility of it being reproduced on a website or perhaps in a book or article? Thank you for your time - Dean Knudsen

RE: Levitt Lamont family
Hello again,
It seems that there must be another Alice Lamont Levitt. The one I'm lookin for was born in 1861 in Illinois, and I believe I've discovered her parents- Hanse & Alice Lamont from Ireland. It looks like she was a school teacher living with her parents before she married. It's still interesting that she and her husband Thompson F. Levitt moved to Cherokee Co. area where there were similar names. There are other Thompson Levitts too!
