|Bio and Links|
|I have been researching family history since 1995. My ancestors were largely in Iowa by 1860, mostly in Davis, Wapello, Mahaska and Poweshiek counties. My wife's ancestors immigrated from Sweden and Germany in the 1880's, coming to Keokuk County, Iowa. The surnames I am researching include Morrison, Dahlstrom, Robertson, Zimmerman, Forsyth/Forsythe, McKay, Elder, Tharp, Waterhouse, Coughlan, Sidwell, Farr, Sexton, Wynne, Hollingsworth, and more.|

|Christina||RE: Hezekiah Shepherd|
Thanks for adding that; it certainly is unique and worth a mention. I came it across by accident - it was underneath a different article that I happened to be reading.
Funny how you just never know what lies below in these graves.
|A Cable||Morrison family|
Gary, do you know if Joseph Morrison had been Catholic? I see his son was not. I am curious because I have some Morrison ancestors that started in Ireland, stopped in Canada and moved to Wapello County in about 1856. Another common area is that a couple of these Morrison ancestors moved to South Dakota, only about 30 miles from where Joseph's grandson William lived. Alan

I was just curious if you have very many photos of the Coghlan family. My great grandfather was the Charles Coghlan of Jamestown, ND mentioned in Mary M. Coghlan Waterhouse Mikesell Allen's obit. Lisa
Please feel free to use the picture, although I am not certain I can properly be attributed. I just happen to come from a family of packrats!

Gary, Elizabeth Robertson Fleenor was my 2nd great-grandmother. Her daughter Winnie was my great-grandmother, and Winnie's son George was my grandfather. You have posted a photo of Elizabeth. Would you be willing to share a full resolution copy with me? I would be happy to exchange any old family photos. Thanks!

|Mary A.||RE: James Monroe Robertson|
I'm still a novice at a lot of this, and in the process have been learning how important it is to validate info. I can't say I have *definite* proof of lineage. On ancestry.com there are 2 articles someone attached to their tree about Stephen Robertson's lineage/family. Tonight I tracked that back to the person who originally posted those articles to see if she had any other sources. Unfortunately, she does not. Nor do the articles have any info about where they were taken from although they appear to be from some book-like print. I've posted a comment on one of these articles about how beneficial it would be to know the sources of these articles. If I learn anything more, I'll be happy to share.

|Mary A.||James Monroe Robertson|
Thank you so much for noting and notifying me of the conflict in dates/age for James Robertson. After double checking my records including a registered copy of his death certificate I realized the error was on my part by entering the wrong digit in his birth year. He was born in 1851 not 52 as I mistyped. I've corrected this mistake, thanks to your letting me know!
Have you determined if this Robertson is part of your family? I am his last surviving grandchild.

If you would like any of the memorials that I created in the Stewart Cemetery let me know and I will transfer them to you.........
|Kit and Morgan Benson||John Mitchell|
YOu raised the question about the date of birth of John Mitchell, # 7698313, buried in Iowa. We transcribed the information from his grave marker when we were surveying the cemetery. We cannot verify if the stonemason got it correct.
|Lori Bell||RE: Finley Maines memorial|
Thank you for adding the obituary information. I recognized my great great Aunt Annie's name. I never knew how she fit in the family as she had remarried and had a new name. I got a lot done on my family tree this weekend with that bit of info.
