My name is John. e-mail PS7616 AT YAHOO. Born and raised in central Iowa. Names I'm currently interested in researching are BRYANT-CREIGHTON-DAYMUDE-OLSON-FOSTER-PETERSON-HOFFMAN-LEWISON. Everywhere I look on this website there are amazing people putting forth amazing efforts. I hope to someday be included with them. I take random photos of stones while walking cemeteries, then create memorials afterwards. If you recognize any, you are welcome to them.|
~~ Dear Ancestor ~~
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn.
You would not know that I'd exist; you died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled so long ago
Spreads out among the ones you left, who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

|Janet Stephenson||RE: Lewison/Olson|
If your mother's name is Elaine, we are 3rd cousins!
I noticed in your bio that you are researching the Lewison family. I also see that you manage Myrtle Olson Burrington's memorial page (85359259), who is one of my Lewison cousins. I was just wondering if we might be related. Thanks!
|Alys from England||RE: SGT Kenneth James Lowe sponsorship|
An honour to do so. Thanks for your message.
|Gail Black||RE: Lyman Evans|
I don't recall if I answered you or not. Too many irons in the fire!! No, I don't have any additional info at this time. I am researching CW soldiers who died at Camp Joe Holt/Jefferson CW Hospital and who were not able to be buried at home. After I finish that project, I plan to go back and add pictures and history as I can.

Thank you John, for the transfer of the Katie E (Lenox) Merkle memorial. It will be well taken care of. Best Wishes.

Thank you, JB, for the editing on the Katie Lenox Merkle memorial and the linking of her memorial to those of a parent and a sibling. Best Wishes.

Thank you for obtaining the photo of Harrys stone.
We appreciate you time and effort.
|Nina Beeson||RE: Bryant/Briant|
I thank you much for this reply. Not long after I send this message I made another search on Find A Grave for Delilah and someone had just a couple of weeks before posted a memorial page on Find A Grave for this lady!!.. She is buried in Highland Memory Gardens Cemetery in Des Moines ...
Find A Grave Memorial# 128303681. I requested transfer of this memorial and the lady most graciously granted this. Have updated with information that I currently have. Now there is only one more sibling in this group to locate. I know that youngest, Margaret Emily, married and moved to Oklahoma. But cannot yet find where buried.
Looking forward to hearing from you again.
I read your bio that you are interested in Bryant names. I also see that you have posted pictures to some John Terrill Briant children memorial pages. Maybe this means that you are related to this line?
If so, I would like to get make contact with you. John Terrill Briant was sibling of my ggrandmother, Nancy Ellen. I am working on a project to link all of these children and am missing information on one that lived in Iowa, Delilah Melvina.
If you have any information for this lady to share it will be so much appreciated.
