|Bio and Links|
I am a 'farm girl' who grew up in central Iowa, but now live in northeast Iowa.|
I found my great grandmother's headstone on Find a Grave quite by accident and have been hooked on this site ever since.
My goals are to try to leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren by connecting them to their family.
I also want to help other people find their relatives and friends. I am so happy to hear from a family member who has found a relative or friend through a memorial I created.
I recall the tender message from a woman who wrote to thank me for the memorials and gravestone photos of three little children born in the 1880s. The family moved on, and the wherabouts of the children was unknown to succeeding generations. The children have not been forgotten!
I am not interested in amassing large numbers of memorials. I am interested in connecting family members.
I am fine with transferring memorials (unless it's my relative) to someone who will add information.
I have posted many memorials and photos from various cemeteries so you can gather data for a person. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove any photo you do not want on a memorial.
I usually try to make informative memorial pages for people. I also try to connect family members within a cemetery or area by researching the family. This takes time, so the memorials I've created are never "done".
I do not know everyone in my memorials. Please let me know if you notice an error so it can be corrected. I want to have true and appropriate information that may help others search.
I will make edits sent to me as quickly as possible (often the same day). I appreciate knowing about obituaries added to memorials I have created so I can make links to family.
I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. These should not be posted on other sites. Email me using the edit and SAC tab on any of my memorials. I do not post my email address.

I took gravestone photos of the entire cemeteries at Lynwood, Antioch, Old Town and Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Clarksville, Iowa; St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Greene, Iowa and at Paton Cemetery in Paton, Iowa.
I added quite a few photos for McCallsburg Cemetery and will be taking photos in several Butler County cemeteries soon.

|Chad Krueger||RE: Lord and Roxanna Harris photos|
When I was taking the photos I forgot that I had set my camera to only shoot at 2 megapixels so at the maximum size they are only 1728 x 1152 pixels. I believe if you click on the pictures from the memorial page of the person it will open in a new page with a larger size. Under the image it should say "Image is scaled. Click image to open at full size". If you click that image it should open much larger and you should be able to click that once more to open it at actual size. I have a 19" monitor and when I do the above it opens the image to larger than my screen. You should be able to save that one. Unfortunately, since the photo was taken at 2 megapixels I don't have any higher resolution available.

Thanks for posting the photos. They have nice color.

May I have your permission to add the photo you took for this memorial to my Ancestry.com tree? I would credit you, of course. If not, there's no need to respond, I don't add any photos without permission.

Would you know if this is Mr Brumley's father: Samuel M Brumley 1894-1971 (#87799277)?

I have updated Mr Brumley's memorial, thank you for the information. I have slowed down on creating memorials, but his obituary was so touching and I knew he was a special man, so I wanted to honor him in this small way. My sympathies to his family and friends.
