Bio and Links
I have enjoyed the ancestor hunt a good many years. Since Christy is my direct line I have been trying to connect all that are in my family. Thanks to many of you other site managers, especially "Pam", "MLC", and IRISH EYES ARE SMILING who have helped the most with all those Davis co. and Wapello co., Iowa transfers I requested. I have connected 7 generations in some of the families.

I will gladly transfer anyone not of my direct lines.

Lula E. Galpin (1872-1903)
Buried in Dunnville Cemetery in Floris, Davis County, Iowa.

Ms. Karen,

I noted from your photograph, that at the 'BASE' of the headstone, there is a list of what appears to be years, months and days. It appears that the years are 29 and the days are 22.

When you are 'OUT AND ABOUT', would you be able to check that stone base and 'TRY' to give me the spread of numbers so I may figure backwards for her birth date??

If illegible, I use shaving cream to smear into stone, then squeegee out the excess and wait for the cream to slowly dry, and 'SOMETIMES' you can get the numbers from it.

Thank You!!

Is Ruby one of your people? If so, would you like a transfer?

You are more than welcome. I wish it would have turned out better but the sun was really bright and in the wrong position and created a glare.
I'll try and remember the next time we are down that way to see if I can get a better one. It was a very beautiful stone!

Sorry, I did not realize that I had already left and edit about parents.
Thank you for all the work you have done

Moses Root at the White Cemetery. I have added several new photos for him. I will add better pictures once I get the area straightened out completely.

Please move Nathan O. Norton, memorial # 58147319 to Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, Birmingham, Van Buren County, Iowa. There is no such thing as "Birmingham Cemetery." Back in the day, when someone said a burial would be a Birmingham, it meant ME or one of the other cemeteries. Location for the grave is Row 20, going north. Thank you.

Mary Elizabeth Strickland information
Hi Karen--There seems to be a minor conflict between dates from the "birth" and "death" info at the top of her page and what is actually written in the narrative. Could you let me know which information is correct?

Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave! It is a wonderful site of those of us who do not live close to the area where our relatives lived.

George Myers
George Myers is my 2d Great Grandfather. I have been to Floris and have much info about the family & his descendants, but have never been able to confirm his POB or family.

Does anyone have good, documented info they can/will share?

I have DNA hits to the Christy and Comer families, but I am unable to make the connection.

Then I saw your last name, I am a decedant of Abner Lewis Mecker andMary Jane Shirley. The last name changes through the records from Mecker and Meeker.

I was wondering if you had him in your line?
