|Bio and Links|
I was born in southwest Iowa and currently live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Both sides of my family have strong "roots" in Fremont and Page County, Iowa, which is where I've taken the majority of the photos I've added to FindAGrave. Civil War veterans in SW Iowa and the 4th Iowa Cavalry are recent interests.|
Simply taking a picture of a headstone is difficult for me. I use various sources to fill in the dash between the dates. If I've made mistakes feel free to send me corrections, or additions. I know that exact dates and places of birth and death, family relationships, obituaries, burial plots, etc. can be important sources of information. I will add information to any memorial I've created. I am more than willing to transfer memorials if they are not my relatives.
Feel free to retake and upload a headstone photo. Weather, time of day, peonies, etc. sometimes make a headstone photo difficult to read. Contact me if I need to delete my photo. I won't be offended.
Anyone may use any of my headstone photos from Find A Grave for their own family research.

These are my grandparents. I was lead to believe we were connected to the vallisca axe murders, yet I cannot find a connection. I know nothing of this side of the family & my uncle mutt and aunt Arlene were in my life when I was a child. I lost contact & my mom Joyce Kalskett, was Sam's youngest... I have a lot of questions. 369.271.2439 please call me sometime, thank you. Jodi Riddle

Just curious as to the way things are listed.
These are my grandparents, and I've got a crazy round about in trying to link em all together, esp since past before I was born.
|Sarah Boettcher Isenegger||Charles C Calvert|
I have been searching for the parents of Charles C Calvert (1803-1880) and my only clue is the information here stating that he was grandson of Reuben Calvert, a soldier in the Revolutionary War. May I ask about the source of your information? I'm hoping for a lead. Thanks!

Kathy, thank you for the additional information that you included on the memorial for my great-grandfather. It was greatly appreciated by me and my siblings.

|M. Niedt||Jeremiah Clement Laird Valandingham Houts|
In a genealogy class I'm attending, if someone is looking for my great grandfather under his given name, they will not find.
Is there anyway that you can add Jeremiah Clement Laird Valandingham Houts to the MO search. I know where to locate him, but if someone else was looking they could not find?

Thank you so much for the photo of Robert Cartmill's monument (yes, I will call it that, it it so large and grand). Certainly he was not meant to be forgotten. Thank you again.

I have just now added his mother's information to the Hamburg Cemetery, Hamburg, Iowa. You have also added his father to this cemetery, could you please put on William's page his father's number is 95664819 and his mother's number is 183075336.
Thank you so much for what you do for others.

"John Lankton (66894643 Sidney Cemetery, Sidney, Iowa)"
"- to add Joel Lankton as his father"
Is correct, Thank-you :)
But the part of:
"change his spouse from Mary Yowell to "unknown."
I do not know where that came from. Maybe they did that because I said to add his father part, but didn't fill in the wife's name, because you already had that part?
But my records I have saying their married too.
:) Glad you double checked with me
in the Illinois, Marriage Index, 1860-1920

Menard, Illinois, USA
Mary F Yowell
in the Illinois, Marriages, 1851-1900

This record can be found at the County Court Records, Film # 1311614 - 1311615.
|James McCracken Jr.||Charles Fremont McCracken|
Could you change the listing under his name for Lola Brown McCracken? She is in fact his spouse. She is my 2nd Great-grandmother. Thank you for all that you have done, it has filled in a lot of blanks for me.
