Bio and Links
Bio Photo ALL MY memorials and MY photos* are entered with the greatest respect, and I sort of want the same respect in presenting favorable memorials and photos of our families and Ancestors.

NOW: Please let me know if any corrections are needed or additions to an entry, so I can help with correcting it the way you need it. On the other hand, I see many other Contributors with HUGE number of entries, lock themselves out of receiving requests for changes or memorial management. And with too many bad photos/information, when it's obvious they knew they were entering wrongful materials. If there is a conflict with any information, I will try to look up my source and reference it to you. I've been thinking about storing all I find and where I get my info for photos or entries for others. Better start doing that... Time is going by fast...files are getting larger...

Photos☆ of graves are COPYRIGHTED■, and all I ask of you is to just ask for use in a reply email/or message before you attempt to enter photos or information from F.A.G. entries and memorials, giving me and F.A.G. credit of course. So, email me FIRST TO ASK PERMISSION with where you're going to use it/website and who for, so I may record that down as a cross reference for anyone requesting source information, then when granted, enter "Used by permission, Copyrighted 20xx (whatever year it is) IAWA Images, Covington, WA; from FIND A". Personal photos of individuals are copyrighted by the Family, and/or the photographer, and can only be used on other sites by request and acknowledgement of the original owner of the photograph, or IAWA Images. We all want to know what our relatives looked like so we can follow the "traits", yeah? Funny to see my Grand Father and Great Grand Father's face in my Son's, but not mine! Why? And I now see a great grand-mother's family lineage in ours...

I'm working with several distant cousins, trying to correct mis-information of our relatives for the family. For those of you out there collecting information for your families, thank you for helping America know of them, for your friends and others, connecting the lost lines of fellowship, family, and love. All the best in 2015...we have so many connections to make this year...good luck in your searches and your findings...

RE: Jessie Cleveland Find A Grave Memorial# 89494021
You have a photo request in the Enid Cemetery. I was out there when I was in Oklahoma and looked at the headstone to see what I could find out on your request.

Jessie Cleveland Find A Grave Memorial# 89494021
I have sent edits on this memorial. This stone is hard to read. The date listed as her death date is actually her burial date. The library records show her birth date as 28 June 1890, her death as 02 Jul 1896 and her burial as 11 May 1906. This is a shared stone with Lois Long Find A Grave Memorial# 95226084. Jessie is on the south side and Lois is on the north. Lois was buried 11 Mar 1906. I did double check that Jessie was buried in May and Lois in Mar according to the cards. The top of the stone says Beloved Granddaughters of F. M. & A. M. Cackler. Hope this helps.

RE: Arno Zoske Photo permission...
Dear KC, Thank you very much! I think that this is the place: I hope it works, if not I'll figure out another way to get there. Mike Gudall

Dear IAWA, I am asking permission to post Arno's headstone pic on Ancestry in my family tree. Yes, it is already there, I forgot to ask and when I remembered I am immediately asking. Sorry! Mike Gudall Find A Grave# 47699594

Dale & Pat Dorning gravesite
Thank you for your very quick response about Dale and Pat Dorning's grave. I was hoping that the cemetery knew about their impending arrival sometime in the future. Evidently not. One of Dale & Pat's daughters told me a few days ago, that her Mom and Dad's remains would soon arrive there. I guess I should check back with the cemetery in the near future to see if that ever occurs. If the VA is taking care of it, then it could take time! Thanks again for your efforts and perhaps I will be able to get a photo once their remains arrive and there is a headstone.
Highest regards and many thanks!

Hi - Thanks for letting me know about this. I will contact the person with the other memorial, so we can merge the two. Hopefully there's a headstone at one of the cemeteries. Even though his obit. is sparse, I was glad just to find anything. With WWII going on at the time of his death, newspapers were understandably filled with reports and stories related to the war, so type space was probably not at it's normal capacity for other things. Thanks again.

RE: Howard Cottell photo request...
I figured the request was because of the quality of the one posted, but hadn't asked yet. If that's what they want, just post the picture you already have. I would be going over late in the week to clear my latest list and I'm not worried about credit. Thanks.

Martha Kong Kuehn #142205358

Hello! So I looked at her memorial that I did. I got my information from Mountain View Funeral Home in Washington. I now don't publish living realatives! I will fix her memorial! Sorry about that. I should go back & fix all of them. I'll make that a project. ;)

OH...if you click on her picture. There is a link to her obit. If it's still available. Her living relative or spouse might have more info than me. I won't create a memorial if I don't have a cemetery listed. Sorry I don't have much more info? But I will fix the living relatives. Let me know if the Cemetery was published wrong or if anything else comes up.!/Obituary
