Bio and Links
I love tracing my family and Find a Grave has been so helpful. I go back to my home state Iowa and my sister and mom love to go to old cemeteries and take pictures. I think it is important to be able to document from these sites before they all disappear in a mass of weeds and ruin.

Ida Owensby #41745174& May Owensby #41745179.
I sent the message shown below to Frances Titsworth but he suggested that I contact you. Do you have any information on this family. Ida was my husband's gggrandmother.

Thank you for all the work you have done with findagrave--we would never have found these graves if not for your work. But, I am wondering if the year (1893) could be wrong on these records since JG Owensby, husband of Ida, married his second wife in June 1892 and since her tombstone appears to have been broken and does not show a date of death. The tombstone for thier daughter, May, looks like the year could be 1890 which makes more since to me. Ida died about a month after May was born and then May died three months later. I would appreciate any other information you might have. Nelta Cloos

RE: Mary Query McColm
I'm a little confused with the McColm names but thinking you wanted to add a link from C.B. to Mary? If that is the case, you will have to do it as one can only link children to parents not parents to children.
Sorry, I know nothing about the McColm family, only entered memorials so I could post pictures I had taken.
I will be more than glad to transfer any/all of them in the New York Cemetery to you if you would like. Just let me know.
Know all about deadends - beenthere, done that!
Good Luck!!!

RE: Krutzfeldt/Kroeger
Hi Diana,
I really don't know much about the Krutzfeldts and nothing about the Kroegers. Minna/Minnie Krutzfeldt was married to my great-grandfather's brother, Jacob Geiger. I was only really looking for information on Minnie. Sorry I can't help more.

I'm sorry I could not find his headstone at this cemetery. I could only find his wife. I'm thinking he must be buried next to her because there is an empty space to her left.

Your very welcome. I happen to drive by there daily when I take my son to school. It's no problem to stop and snap a few pictures each day. Glad I could help. If you are ever in the area, it is very easy to find. Just off the drive as you enter the cemetary from St. Rt. 29.

Put it on sites of each individual. In the note, be sure n list who is who if u know. Obviously, any living will not get a pic. ;-)

RE: William Kroeger
Or if we would have realized at a younger age that we would care so much about where our ancestors came from and what their lives were like! I agree..good luck in your search!
