RE: Sherman Hanson
I have transferred the Hanson Memorial to you. You now are the custodian, and you have "write" authority now. You can add or delete whatever you want, text, family photo, whatever. You can not delete photos that have been posted by someone else, but you can post your own photos, text, make family connections, and so on. For your information, Mr. Hanson's ashes are in the wall, just behind his name plate. LeRoy.

Good evening: Per your guidance, I have changed the birth place of Sherman Hanson to Des Moines, Union County, New Mexico. If you are a relative, and/or if you would like to have this Memorial transferred to your care, please ask. I am happy to do transfers. LeRoy.

William Henry Martin Gravestone Photo
Hi Linda,
I noticed you submitted a photo request for William Henry Martin's gravestone. I have been researching Haven Cemetery in Tama County, Iowa for a number of years, and have added many, many memorials and gravestone photo's for Haven Cemetery on the findagrave website.
I have lot's of relatives buried there, and several years ago made about 3 trips to this cemetery, and added names of relatives, and took photo's of their gravestones. I had made copies of the pages of the WPA Records to determine relatives and dates, and after I had loaded my known relatives on the findagrave website, I then decided I would load the other names, even though they were, to my knowledge, not related, that were listed on the same pages as my relatives. I then thought, what the heck, I may as well copy the other WPA Record pages that I did not have, and load those names on too, for other's that were doing research such as I.
There are others who have also added memorials and taken photo's and added them to findagrave, but something prompted me to complete the project, so I made copies of each alphabetical page listing for Haven cemetery from findagrave, so I would have an alphbetical list to work with, which also would show me whether there was already a gravestone photo submitted or not, and beginning March 15, 2012, I started canvassing the Cemetery from West to East, and it took me 4 trips and 423 photo's later, until April 6, 2012, to complete photo taking of all the gravestones in the Cemetery.
Two weeks ago on Saturday April 14, 2012, I finished loading all the photo's onto the findagrave website. There were probably less than 10 stones that I could not make out at all, who they were. The rest I was able to figure out who they were, even if I only had a partial name or a partial date.
I did not find a gravestone for a William Henry Martin that would match the dates on the William Henry Martin Memorial. Also, the WPA records did not list a William Henry Martin as being buried in Haven Cemetery, that match the dates on the William Henry Martin Memorial.
There is a William Martin, born about 1841 in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, that was the son of George Washington and Eliza Bird Martin, who was in the Civil War with Company K, Iowa 4th Cavalry Regiment that is buried in Haven Cemetery. His name is on the WPA records, and his gravestone was one that I photographed on St. Patricks Day, Saturday March 17, 2012.
I'm not sure where Kathleen Garner, that set up the William Henry Martin memorial, got her information, that he would be buried in Haven Cemetery, but if he is, unless he is the same as the William Martin I have set up, he does not have a gravestone, and is not listed on the WPA Records as being buried in Haven Cemetery.
The William Henry Martin memorial shows him as being born 1815, Franklin County, Vermont, and dying in 1865 in Tama County, Iowa. Of course there are many Cemeteries in Tama County, so I wonder if this William could possibly be buried in one of the other Cemeteries. Of course dying in 1865, wherever he is, there is a chance that he does not have an existing gravestone at all.
You might contact Kathleen Garner, that set up his memorial, and ask her where she got her information that he was buried in Haven Cemtery. Sorry I can't be of any more help. Good luck!
