You are encouraged to use any photo that I have taken of people, tombstones, or cemeteries for your family trees, or whatever. To me posting to this very free site is an indication to the freedom to view or use. If I didn't want to share, this is the LAST PLACE I would post to.

If you have NOT had a response from an email sent, PLEASE try again. I know that I have lost several emails sent to help me make corrections.

I am interested in recording family, family friends and the families that made up Rhodes IA. Most of my entries are involved with Rhodes, IA. A community of people deeply connected to my family on both sides. If they aren't blood relatives, then they were people involved in the daily living of my family.

I am currently working with the Davenport neighborhood called the Gold Coast. I am placing people who have made homes in our houses.

Darling family
I see that you have connected a lot of Darling family members..
This is a family that I am adding to my tree so I want to make sure that it is the right family. Do you know if this family has Connie Morgan daughter of Norman Darling Morgan ? Thanks so much for all the work you do.
I know you work on Gold Coast families. I also have entered many in Oakdale Cemetery...

Hi, I noticed that you posted a photo of Martha Harlow Vanatta. Do you have a better copy? She is my 2x great grandmother. Thanks.

Crystal Township Cemetery
I went to the cemetery to fulfill your photo request for Augusta and Heinrich Landt's markers. There were a number of Landt's in the cemetery and I have taken photos of the markers if they happen to be ancestors of yours and you want to add their memorial pages I would be happy to upload photos for you. The ones I found that are not yet on findagrave are:
Henry & Clara
Henry Landt Jr
Hannis & Bertha
Mary (wife of Arlo)
Edwin & Elsie
Emil & Tina

I have dates if that helps you. I will post the other Landt's that already have memorial pages on findagrave.

RE: Anna E Dean, Mem# 19676740
We have recently found MANY covered over and moved stones in this cemetary. 2 that have been covered over for at least 6 decades. The stone next your Anna Dean request has been found to be moved and redone due to a pine tree. Anna Dean maybe be under the tree I showed you. In fact I believe she is. They are finding unmarked Graves alot.
Just wanted u to know.

Albert J Knoll - Memorial# 67776089
You had requested a photo, but this appears to be the wrong name and wrong cemetery for this person. I believe his name was Alfred J Knoll and is buried at Highland Memory Gardens in Des Moines Iowa.
