Bio and Links
I will transfer graves if you specificaly tell me how your related, dont ask if you are only going to say he/she is related to me.

A portion of the of the memorials listed here are from records which I ran across in research of my own family, and wanted to give them a spot to be remembered as well. Others were given to my by FAG to help maintain after the passing of a dear archivist. I appreciate your help in correcting and improving any memorials I have listed.
If you find mistakes or want me to make additions, please use the edit tab on the memorial to let me know. I will gladly make corrections/additions. Please send memorial numbers when requesting links.

Please observe the livings right to privacy. When posting obituaries with memorials I ask that you not publish the survivors listed unless of course you can verify that all survivors have passed as well.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.

Fielding Figgins FAG#19698279
Fielding Figgins is my 4th great grandfather on my mother's side. I saw your photo on the above Find A Grave site. May I get a copy of it for my tree? There is another Find A Grave# for him - 61221295 and am not sure why.
Thanks for your consideration. Also I am a great believer in trying to save history. Thanks to you and the other Find A Grave volunteers, all these ancestors won't be lost.

RE: Margaret Ann VanDeman
The family bible is for sale at a huge antique store in Arizona. I will need to go there and get the case number/inventory number to send to you as well as the store contact info. I can do this Saturday morning. I think there is a two hour difference. I did ask if they took credits cards over the phone and they do. Sorry I did not look at the price. Five of the eight pictures are identified one was Lizzie Nash VanDeman. The bible itself needs restoration, the spine is missing the covers are detached. There are the normal pages you find in bibles, one for marriages, two for births and one for deaths all filled in beautiful writing in old ink. I hope you decided to get it if not please pass on the info. To someone who may be able to purchase it. I think Kate was the adopted daughter, not sure. Is this the only way to contact you?

Margaret Ann VanDeman
Are you related to this family? I think her father was John Lawson VanDeman mother Rebecca P Wilson. The reason I am asking is that I found the family bible (1863) for sale at an antique store in Arizona. The information differs a little from what is on Find A Grave. The treasure is there are eight family photos including an adopted daughter. Please let me know if you know of anyone that would be interested and I will send you the details. Thank you for your time.

Wapello Cemetery
I've noticed that you've been taking photos in Wapello Cemetery and have captured images of some Winder headstones. I was wondering if you by chance have taken photos of any of them in location near one another? Thanks for taking these photos by the way! I know how time consuming it is photographing a cemetery.

Are you near the Oakland Cemetery in Keokuk?
