|I have been interested in family history and genealogy for over 30 years now and I am always finding something new. I have walked many cemeteries with my wonderful husband [he actually takes most of my pictures] and I will try and get organized to start adding pictures to this website. The main surnames that I research are Newman, Neighbor, Whitmore, Reed, Burnham, McGown, Mullen, Kennedy, Parsons, Barnard and Williams.|
I do not live in the area where I grew up but have many digital pictures from the cemeteries in that part of the country. If someone needs a picture from any of my surnames please write and if I have the picture I will be more than happy to share it with you.

I have updated Joanne's middle and maiden name on her memorial, and updated both her and her husband Rex's bio's. Thanks for the information!
|Rick Daily||Rex Cobet|
I have corrected the death date of Rex Cobet on findagrave. The date of April 15 came from the SSDI. I guess it's wrong.
My GGG Grandfather Obadiah Smith is buried in Haven Cemetery, and almost everyone buried there is related one way or another, either by blood or by marraige.
I took on the project and added any names to the findagrave website from the WPA records, that were not already there, and combed the cemetery and photographed any stones that were not already photographed. It took me quite a few trips and over 700 photo's before I was done. I live about 85 miles away from there in Ankeny, Iowa north of Des Moines.
Rex's relationship to me, according to the relationship calulator on ancestry.com is "2nd cousin of wife of 1st cousin of husband of 2nd cousin 3x removed" through the Smith, Flint, Fowler, Hayward, Woolsey, Beadle, Cobet family. I guess that probably makes you and I some kind of distant Cousin.
I don't know if you have access to ancestry.com, but I see there are quite a number of photo's on there provided by Cherie Lynn Schrader-Cobet and retouched and enchanced by Bob Cherveny.
|Misty & Company||Wrong???|
The tombstone you have connected to this memorial #73476038 is incorrect. This
tombstone for Pierson Hackett 'Phil' Commer [Phillip], Memorial #62459267 and
Nelle Lois Cram Commer. Memorial #62459300.
Thank you for creating these memorials. I appreciate your doing this as I live in Texas and cannot always get to the cemetery.
What is wrong with the headstone on this memorial,????

|Blake Dusheck||Lila Kopenhaver Waterbury|
Kopenhaver was Lilas maiden name. Her mother was Emma Zerbe Becker. Her mother was married twice once to an unknown Kopenhaver for a very short time and had Theodore Charles Kopenhaver and Lila. Shortly after Lila was born her mother remarried Herman Becker.
I've seen the marriage records for Emma, as well at two of three records for Lila. I also have Lilas death record. Lilas Daughter Katherine Zerbe was my great grandmother. Henry Zerbe didnt Die in 1909 as stated in and John Andra Zerby is incorrect as to his name. The Marriage record for Henry and Lila states they were married in 1909, but all of their children Margaret, Katherine, Opal, Nellie, and Louise were born before they were married. Lila and Henry were actually uncle and niece. Florence was born out of Lilas first marriage or accidental. I have seen all the birth records for these children as well Obituaries for all of them. I as well have spoke to Florences daughter on the phone. It is a very messed up confusing line of events, I have panned it out and fit all the pieces together with record information that I know at least 98% of the information is correct. if you have any other questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not sure about the spelling of the name either, but I only went by the tombstone. If you would want a transfer I would be happy to make it for you.
I think I have made all but one correction for Thomas Dit Newman. I can't remove the one child as I did not enter her memorial....Sorry Richard

Are you sure it's Washington Township in Linn County? I know there's a Washington in Washington County.
I have added Oliver's info, thanks! I have also linked him to his mother, Ida. Do you happen to know where his father is buried?
|FrozenFlame22||RE: M J McLoud Malum|
Do you mind if I transfer Martha Jane Vardy Malum [Memorial #76243419] and John G McLoud [Memorial #76243285] to you? I was just taking pictures of some of the missing memorials at that cemetery when I lived there. I'm not related to either of them, and I'd much rather their memorials be managed by someone who is connected to the family.
|John Wilkinson||RE: Malinda J Newman-#28702274|
Marian; I have researched your questioning Malinda's burial and stone in Shiloh Cemetery and would offer the following.
I worked the Shiloh cemetery on 8-1-2008 for photo requests and added numerous names associated with the Reynolds family from that cemetery on 8-1-2008.
Malinda's stone is almost exactly the same as James T Newman found that same day near the one I posted for Malinda, and James T. was the son of John N. Newman & Zilda Reynolds Newman. The memorial numbers of Malinda and James show they were posted the same day.
The Iowa gravestone project also shows Malinda buried in Shiloh Cemetery!
I cannot address weather she was married to Hamilton D. Newland, but I'm convinced that my posting of Malinda's stone in Shiloh is corrrect. I cannot re-verify this at this time since I'm in Arizona for the winter.
If you have further questions feel free to contact me.
