Bio Photo Hi. My name is jane austin.

If I took a photo you'd like for your own personal use, I would be honored if you displayed it. You may credit me with my FindaGrave # shown at the top of this page.

If you need a photo from this area, I'll do my best to get it for you during good weather. As I live in Iowa, that means not tornadoing, raining, snowing, sleeting, icing, and that I don't need a shovel or a parka. I tend to hibernate during the winter. It's a mammal thing.

I am currently working on photographing cemeteries local to me in O'Brien, Buena Vista, Cherokee and Clay Counties, Iowa. I'm starting with photo requests and then continuing to "mow the rows." Sometimes my photos are great. Sometimes they're good. Sometimes they're not. If I post a photo to your memorial that disturbs you, please let me know and I will remove it until such time that I can get back to it.

Have fun with your history! :)

By any chance do you know the plot number that cemetery Concordia is a mess and the office help aren't really any help. Alot of the older burials did not have a headstone or marker. I spent 2 days trying to find my relatives until I went back to office and then they said oh there's no marker or headstone.Let me know. I'll go for you later in the week it's raining now in Illinois. Dawn Hernandez

RE: Hintz family at North Northfield
There are something like 100 unmarked graves at North Northfield that we know about, out of about 1100. So a little less than 10% and that's not unusual.

Sometimes the oldest stones break or go missing, but Helen, Eugene & Leroy's graves never had markers.

If you want to place headstones for any family members, you certainly can do so! I had a headstone made for a Gr-Gr-grandfather in Ohio whose only marker was a wooden cross. If Leroy or Eugene was in the military, the government will send a headstone.

Hintz family at North Northfield
Donald Murray Hintz was one of the trustees at that cemetery before it was turned over to the Village of Northbrook. Years ago he gave the Northbrook Historical Society copies of all the cards, and I have copies too.

The records were in very good order at that time, so I am surprised that the cards have to be sorted out and/or could not be found.
