Hello To All...Finding our ancestors has become a passion in our lives and we truely enjoy it. It all started about a 6 yrs ago when my husband and I realized we hardly knew anything about our family history. We were soon on a conquest.... |
We also soon found out how important it is to have people out there who can help us find our families stones that we ourselves are unable to go visit and see. Thank all of you for what you do! Becoming a photo voluteer is our way of helping others as much as they have helped us.
My husband and I, along with our beloved little dog Sassy, truely enjoy galavanting around the countrysides visiting cemeteries and finding stones of our loved ones and adding to this wonderful site.
We try and do the best we can to fullfill all and any photo requests for Mahaska County, Iowa and have a great time doing it! At the same time we have tried to make sure that there are pictures and maps of all listed cemeteries for Mahaska County along with others we visit in other counties.
Our closest immediate family lines are Welch, Knupp, Knedler, Barnett, Rains, Saylor, Eakins, Brown, DeWitt and Ellis. We do most of our exploring in Southeastern Iowa and Northern Missouri.
We do add "non" family names from time to time that have not already been posted, so that people can more easily find their relatives.
I am more than willing to add any personal info or link relatives for these memorials if they are not your "DIRECT" relative within the 4 generations per the find a grave guidelines. I firmly believe in following the rules set by find a grave (due to some very unpleasant prior circumstances in the past)so I do my best to comply to them for transferring memorials.
So...duplicating an entry to add your own information or adding biographical information in the flower sections (which is a no-no!) will not be necessary.
Please see the Find A Grave guidelines for this type of activity!!!
I have found that requesting to manage a memorial is "NOT" the important issue here in Find A Grave....its getting information put on our family memorials that is important!
If you want multiple monuments photographed, please take the time to create a memorial for each person rather than attach a message to one request asking for multiple photos or "everyone else in that cemetery with the same surname." Its easier "not to miss" names that way and saves on gas!
I also give permission for any of my pictures to be used by anyone. Good Luck To All Of You!

|A List||Mary Ann Knupp|
There are other dates that do not agree with any calculated birth date or date of death. Notes copied from Daniel Knupp's old German bible do not agree with either the birth or date of death. So I will leave as is until someone provides more acceptable proof of actual dates. Mary Ann (Knupp) Houck was my husband's 3rd great grandmother.

I am not related to the Browns, that I know of. I was helping someone and they were unable to continue with the project, so I am "holding" the memorials until they can resume their research.

Do you know if there is a readable gravestone for her in the Selection Cemetery? If not if you get there sometime would you please take one and send it to me? I live in Oregon.
Thank you, Sharon.
|Doug & Marilyn Parman||RE: James Keith Barnett|
Sorry there were no Barnett's near him. I always look around to see if there are any connection to someone buried near by. He is in a row that are cremains.
|Leslie (Burke) Fernandes||RE: Salter|
I took a picture of a stone next to his. It is for a Theresa Salter 02/09/21 04/26/10
It says she was a 1st Lt in the army during WWII
Would that be Betty? There was no Find-a-grave page for her, so I didn't post the photo.
|Buzz Piersol||RE: George W Piersol|
Thanks for searching--I am not sure I was clear when I put in the photo request, but George W Piersol is technically buried in St. Mary's which is within Forest Cemetery. This was one of the first findagrave memorials I created and I don't think I found St. Mary's in it. Thanks for your help. The plot number I gave should refer to the location within St. Mary's.
|Vern-O||RE: Fine and Utt|
You're welcome. I did not see a headstone for Laura's husband, but I did find a stone for Clyde D. Utt, born 9 Nov 1909 and died 8 Jun 1912, son of F. & M.L....hope that helps!

|Bob||RE: Carl Urness|
Hi Sharon, you are welcome. About Doroth Urness Knedler, sorry no matches at all for a lot of different combinations, of the name. Carl's is in a family plot with Frank B. Sinnen the person who bought the grave plot, with Carl and 4 others. Dorothy is not in it or anywhere else in the cemetery. I took photo's of all the Sinnen's since Roselawn has all graves on Find A Grave. The cemetery has very good records and mapping online. Take care, good luck, Bob.

|B.J. Nelson||Thomas Gardner|
There is no marker for Thomas Gardner. I will have to check with the cemetery when they are open and find out when he was interred. I was just at the library but didn't have his info with me. I will try to go back soon but it could be two weeks before I get there. I checked the Longmont Ledger on line and his name is not listed. The old Daily Times Call is not on line but the library has an indexes based on prior to 1977 and 1978 to present.
