Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Gadsden, Alabama, in 1981. I currently live in Bettendorf, Iowa, with my wife, two kids, three rodents, five guppies, and one cory catfish. I'm an amateur actor, and sometimes professional theatre technician. I'm an organizer and writer/director for a semi-regular living history event in local historic cemetery Oakdale Memorial Gardens. I am also in the process of nominating Oakdale to the National Register of Historic Places.

I'm also a genealogy buff, researching the following families:
Crow/Crowe, Couch, Oliver, West, Fenn/Fann, Humphries, Fleming, Scott, Petree/Petri, Mayer, Zimmerman, Smith, Sevier/Xavier Goode/Good/Goad, Ray, Henry, and McKeme (?) in the Southeast U.S. (AL, TN, NC, GA, VA, SC, AR) New England (PA, MA), England, France, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, and Spain.
Hatton, Doyle, Green, Fritsch, and Thomas in the Midwest (MO, IL, KY), Virginia, Ireland, and Germany.

I am also willing to do limited genealogical research in Scott County, Iowa. E-mail me for info.

Thanks so much for the picture of Louisa Webb Platt's gravestone. I've been waiting for years to see it. That's fabulous! Thank you!

Very interesting! Thank you for the extra tidbit on Baby Bishop- a new mystery to solve. Thank you for the great pictures that you took and posted to William's memorial. He was my great-grandfather's half brother.

Hi Dustin,
Thank you for taking the pictures of the grave for Arthur & Mary Ziemer. I live out of state and never would have seen them if it weren't for you taking your time to take them.
Take care,

RE: Kaufmann / Schmidt at Oakdale
Thanks so much for the photos for the Kaufmann family! I noticed I could add additional birth or death dates and went ahead and did that as I was looking at the photos! Then I noticed that you had sent SACs on some of these - so you will get some notices that say No Change. Sorry about that. I didn't even think to check my edits first. I did accept the rest of the ones that you sent. Also, thanks for adding Freda.

RE: Samaria Franklin Oliver
I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I did not request the transfer; I simply explained that both were inactive, which you were. The Findagrave rules are for direct descendants. I will ask Samaria's grandson if it is worth "fighting" over. He is not a computer buff. I would have thought you'd be glad Samaria was well taken care of.

Samaria Franklin Oliver
There were two memorials already posted for Samaria when I tried to add information a year ago. I tried and tried to contact you and got no response from either memorial owner. Since I'm searching the Oliver family for Samaria's grandson (cousin of my husband) I asked for permission from Findagrave to correct the issues. They transferred the inactive Mulder to me. I do believe the biography I added is accurate, supported by records and his family memories. If you want me to remove mine, I would rather ask his grandson, direct line, to accept transfer than to leave Samaria cut off from his family. I wish I had known your wishes earlier, as Jim Lyle was visiting with us two days ago. Barbara Tynes Claiborne 47794197
