I am a retired R.N., who was lucky to have several family members who were very active in collecting and preserving our family histories. Now that my husband and I have the time to do so, we enjoy helping others (and ourselves!) with photo's and other information. Please let me know if you would like a memorial transfered to you, as I have added some that that have not been been added previously in hopes that someone might discover a relative that they had not known about. Please feel free to use any photo's taken by me for this site for your families history. Maybe I'll even be able to meet some new cousins, no matter how distant!|
Good luck in your searches!
Cindy (and Bruce)
My family (a few major) are Olander, Simmons,Craig, Rosenberger, Shaull, Sutton. So many exciting threads to trace and discover! I use Ancestry.com, also.

|Sheila||Edgar Tyler Sr|
I'm really thunking myself now. I am 99.5% sure his dad is right next to him. It seems to me that when I took Edgar JR, I had a bit of trouble because of the design of his grave-site. It was hard to capture with my camera, and I believe that's when I moved along and decided NOT to take Edgar SR.
When I take random pics, which was basically what I was doing on that day, I usually take the whole family plot, if possible. Oh gosh, I just didn't do so on this day.
I actually live around 50-60 miles away from Alex Memorial. I seldom get that way, but if I do, I'll try to swing past. At least I now know where to look for them all. There is an office there, but I was a little uncomfortable to ask them as I got the feeling (perhaps wrongly) that they may run me off.
I will tell you that the 1400 graves entered into Find A Grave for Alex Mem is a VAST under-count. There are many, MANY people buried there - it's a big place.
So, the two Tyler's, and the two Craig's ... give me some time, and if no one else picks it up, I'll try to swing back out there.

Was Edgar a Jr? The reason I am asking is that, for some reason, I believe I may have seen a Sr out there.

About 3 weeks back I was at Alexandria Memorial, mostly taking random pics. I was so surprised when I got a notification that Find A Grave was going to notify you that I had fulfilled your request for Edgar Jr.
That prompted me to look at the other cemetery requests, and I see you have one out for the Craig's. I did not photograph the Craig family, and I did not spot their stones, however, I put the following descriptor on Mr. Edgar's photo.
"Located inside the circle directly ahead of the cemetery entrance. Back side of the circle in the NE quad; west-center in that quad."
Hopefully that makes sense and can be added into your request. I know exactly where Edgar is; I wished I had paid more attention to the requests before going out, sorry.

Thanks so much for taking the time to locate and take a picture of the grave markers. My family is going to be thrilled.

Thank you so much for taking the time to take the photos

Thank you kindly for taking and posting the photograph for Alonzo Crumb. He was my third great grandfather. It is most appreciated!
You are right about that! Just wish I could follow the trail back farther than 1850!!
I see your name often on SW Iowa grave sights . . do you live in the area? I live in Bellevue, NE but love some of the old cemeteries in SW Iowa and have found a few relatives (not Craigs) from time to time! The only thing I don't like about this hobby, is that I get lonesome!!
