Bio and Links
Everyone deserves to be remembered.

My goal is to photograph all the cemeteries in Floyd County Iowa. When I photograph the grave of someone I've known during my lifetime I take a moment to remember them. Some I haven't thought about in years and it's like "Wow, I remember you" and all the special things about that person pop into my head.
I want to give a shout out to my son for going with me to the cemeteries and helping to take photos. It's very much appreciated.

Cemeteries that still need photographing:
If you find that I am managing a memorial for a close family member and you want to manage it, just let me know and I will happy to transfer it to you.

Please feel free to use the photo that I have added to a family member's memorial for your personal use. Please do NOT add my photos to other fag memorials without giving proper credit to me.
If anyone would care to make a small donation to the St. Charles/Riverside Cemetery for their gravestone cleaning and restoration project it would be most appreciated as it is a non-profit cemetery.

Donations can be sent to the Riverside Cemetery Association at 59 Riverside Drive, Charles City, Iowa 50616. Please indicate that it is for the gravestone and restoration project.

Herbert Knowlton -- Oakwood Cemetery
I had added a memorial for Herbert Knowlton . You have added a marker photo to an additional name entry. Could you please add your photo to my entry?

Thanks much!

Bill Taylor dupe
Thanks for finding this duplicate. I did not enter it twice, but I have noticed that occasionally two will appear...a program glitch, perhaps. At any rate, I deleted one of them. Creating one memorial for Bill was difficult enough. Thank you.

Just curious where you obtained the photo of John W Brown. A grandson, my stepbrother, is interested.
Thanks, wwphil.
