Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a registered nurse living in a very rural area in Iowa. Through researching my own family history I have become interested in recording and restoring the small cemeteries that have been long forgotten by many. Many people researching their ancestry do not realize that many people from Canada, Ny, Scotland, and Germany were the first to settle in Iowa's farming areas. Their research may lead them to Iowa; however, if these small cemeteries are not recorded, I fear much of our history will be lost as the tombstones deteriorate. I love researching family histories and would like to aid those searching here in Iowa.

Find A Grave Memorial# 5823438
Oliver McPike- Hello, I noticed that a profile pic of him was posted on his memorial. I'm putting together a family book as he is my grand niece's gg-grandfather. I was hoping for your permission to use in our family book. Also, we were wondering if this photo could contain other family members, possibly his wife Louise. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Eve

Nathan W. Soesbe
I came across the grave site photo of Nathan W. Soesbe, b. 1867.
My name is Nathan W. Soesbe, b. 1967.

I believe he was my great, great uncle.
I have the prototype "Soesbe Gate" cattle gate he invented and submitted to the U.S. patent office in 1905.
His brother's name was George Soesbe, also the name of my son.

Second request
In April 2012 I requested a correction on #5601334, Mary Finn, my g-g-g grandmother, but it hasn't been done. Could you please transfer control of her record to me so I can do it? There are a couple of typos I would like to fix as well. Thank you!

Lydia Ann Irish Wells
Could you please list the following information on the memorial for Lydia Ann Irish Wells #6598141:

Mother: Mary Ann Brockman Irish #26515231

Father: Joel Signor Irish #26515267

Mary Ann was a younger sister to my great, great grandfather Walter Leake Brockman. It would be nice to have them listed on her memorial in case any of her descendants come looking for their roots. This way, they can follow the family back through the generations.

Thank you

Hannah Bruner
Hi Karen...after running around the Boulder Cemetery today and then searching through the Bruners, I'm thinking that #5990079, Hannah Catherine Hall Bruner, and #5622078, Hannah Bruner, are probably the same person. If they aren't, then John Lewis Bruner appears to have had two wives with the same name who died 1 day apart. If they are the same, then you already have a picture of Hannah Bruner's gravestone on her page and the request isn't necessary. I sent this same info to Linda, my contact person. This is fun :o) Jen

P.S. I tried to send this to your email and it kicked back.
