Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing this genealogy thing for a long time. I have learned that proof is important. I strive to have my memorials accurately reflect what is on the actual tombstone. If you have a tombstone photo for one of my memorials and it has different information than what I have posted, please post the photo and send me a message so that I can edit the memorial.

With 1 or 2 exceptions, every memorial that I have added or that I manage is a relative or the spouse of a relative. If your genealogy involves any of my memorials, please feel free to send me a message. I always like to meet new relatives.

If I have posted a photo on any memorial, you may feel free to use that photo as you wish. However if you hit the big time and rake in lots of $$, consider sending me some.

Names that I am researching include:

And of course all of their associated families. All of these families were at one time or other in the southeast quarter of the state of Iowa.

Anderson stone photos
Hello, I uploaded some new photos for William (# 64141921) and Benjamin Anderson (# 64141844) memorials. The sun was at just the right angle. If you like, I will take them down.

RE: Mathew L. Picken
Thanks Kenneth. Please take a look at the memorial now. I think I may have gotten the info included, at least I hope I did. If you ever come across his parents on Find A Grave, please let me know, because I found his paternal grandfather. (I love compiling info on families, but sometimes what I gather may be a bit off. Feel free to send me any more edits and I'll update further.) We've got a great bunch of volunteer photographers for this cemetery, so feel free to submit photo requests also.
Best wishes and happy hunting.

RE: Kate Wickham
Great! Because I found Orrel Wickham with his wife Minnie (Bungard) Wickham in California and had Orrel connected to Ballard and Katherine Wickham. I thought that might be his parents. Just double checking. I am a distant relative of Minnie's.

RE: Susanna McFadden Picken
Hi Kenneth,
Yes I am a descendant. The McFadden/Picken would be my great 5x grandparents. Their daughter Jane married James English and they are my 4x grandparents.

I've got a newspaper clipping about Susanna and Matthew I can email you if you like.
