Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm originally from Sutherland, Iowa and I'm in the process of recording, photographing & adding as many obits as I can find for all the graves in the Waterman & Calvary Cemeteries in Sutherland and Liberty Cemetery in Calumet.

If you want a bio added in I will happily add it. If it is adding parents/spouse, please use edits feature.

The following newspapers in & around Sutherland are now online! Ordered by county now since so many more have been added. Happy hunting :)

Since I live in Cincinnati, I'm also photographing Greenwood Cemetery in Hamilton, Ohio. All info is pulled from the stones and from cemetery records. A note about Greenwood's cemetery records, there are mistakes - lots of them so please do not take them as 100% accurate. If names differ from those records, I normally use what is on the stone and note what the records have.

As a reminder, transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

If you find any mistakes please email me! :) With the papers being online, I copy and paste from them, and it isn't always perfect (lots of extra ./,/- stuff) I try to get it all removed but feel free to point stuff out

RE: 37458525
Well, if he's at Saint Anthony's in Primghar, I haven't found him there. I've walked that cemetery at least three times. Puzzling. Just thought I'd check with you to see if you knew something I did not. Next time I go out there, I will check again determinedly (I just made that world up) for him in Primghar.

Thanks, Nicki!

Is this gentleman at Calvary, Sutherland? I don't recall seeing him at Primghar, haven't recorded him; his family appears to be at Paullina, and he was the mayor of Primghar.

He seems to be out of his comfort zone, but as I have no better options, for now I leave it in your capable hands.

You always do good work, but your work on the Jetter family is EPIC!! You really took a few rocks and turned them into a family history. You rock! Thank you, Nicki.

Hello nicki,
I am Mike O'Shea and found that you have posted an obituary and a photograph of the death and burial of David Johnson. He is a 3rd cousin of mine and I would like to seek your permission to use both the obit and the picture of his stone on my Ancestry Site. Naturally all appropriate credits will be afforded you in the notes. Thank you

James Vannatta at Greenwood

Thank you for letting me know the correct spelling of his last name. He was a CIVIL WAR vet and I was able to read his unit and add to his bio. Your photo was excellent, easy to read.

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave

RE: Runge family
I'm related on the Menke side, so I don't know her family. Sorry wish I could be of more help. Kris.
