RE: Leona Swift
Leona is a distant relative to me and not within the parameters set by Findagrave. I appreciate the offer but I don't think I can improve on her memorial beyond what you have. Thank you for making the update on her maiden name.

Wiese/Hammer Transfers
Hello Jon: I am ecstatic to have these recent transfers. Also, I suspect you had a hand in the transfer of Caroline Wiese. It is with pleasure that I report I have found her husband, as well. A million thanks. Jeanne.

RE: Elmwood
Thanks for your kind words. Usually I focus on my ancestors, but since most of them ended up in Clinton County, why not look beyond Goose Lake, Charlotte and Sabula.

As a neophyte, it is a pleasure to build on a solid foundation you and others have provided.

Thanks again.

BIG OOPS on Brenda Mickey
I accidentally just sent you an edit for Brenda Sue Mickey with the wrong parental info on it. (Got my memorial numbers mixed up.) M.R. Beach is NOT Brenda's Mother. Please disregard. Sorry! I will send the correct edit in a minute.

Odd problem with 79748739
Jon, for some reason, entry 79748739 does NOT show up with a search for Meredith or MEREDITH within Elmwood cemetery. Can you maybe modify her name so that it shows up as Meredith (Only 1st capital letter?)

Also, I'd be happy to have a few of those Meredith graves transferred to myself to add info to, etc. I'm descended from David P. Meredith and Sarah Bush Meredith.

They were actually married to each other twice.

Married, then divorced,
each married other spouses,
then remarried each other again.

RE: George Erickson
Actually, I had checked the web site before I went out to the cemetery and saw the pic so not a problem. Because I saw another Erickson photo request I went to cemetery anyway and posted the military plaque that was on the backside of George Erickson's stone. I live very close to Swedesburg so go by there frequently.

RE: Henrietta Familton
Happy to help get the info straightened out. I had earlier made an incorrect assumption about them, too, so I have glad to find the correct info. I'll send more edits as soon as I can get to it.

RE: Lemuel Blackburn

I knew that Lemuel Blackburn had died before 1917 (I don't remember what my source was for that, but his wife was listed as a widow in the 1905 Iowa state census as well), so I did some digging since the date you had was after that. I found his wife's death index entry (pasted below), and the date you had listed for him is actually her death date. Also, I found his index card for the Civil War Pension, and the widow's pension was filed on August 10th, 1904. I didn't have any luck finding an exact death date for him, so that's where I got the information on when he died. I hope that helps! Thanks, and take care! "-)
