Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in a small town in southeast Iowa and spend a lot of time in Graveyards and Cemeteries taking pictures, taking notes, just piecing the families together. Some of these Cemeteries are so old that there are not any other records of the people resting there. When these cemeteries does that person's existence! We would like to thank all of you for your contributions to the preservation of these cemeteries.The peace and serenity found in these old cemeteries is our reward! If there is a memorial we have added, that is not in our family, we will consider a transfer of the memorial to you. Please use the Edit tab, Please do this on every memorial that you want transferred or a correction on and please include your ID number.
Thank You, Mo & Dave

William M. Hinkson
Thank you so much for your information on John
Wesley Hinkson of Henry county, Iowa! I am doing family research and am interested in more information on his father, William M. Hinkson. Do you have any more information or can you tell me where I can find more information on him?

RE: Waldrep
I live a couple of hundred miles away. You may find someone by contacting the Polk Co Genealogical Society. When we went to the Waldrep Cemetery, it was fenced in. We climbed over the gate and walked to the cemetery. It might not be very safe now. Someone from the genealogical society might know someone with a key.

RE: Howdy
Hi Mo an Dave, I m so glad to hear from you guys. finally got home the 6th of Dec, and am really enjoying being back home again. The wife and I are really liking the house since they did the remodeling. Makes it a lot easier for me to get around in the wheel chair. I hope that's just a temporary thing though. Ho you guys doing?

RE: Waldrep
Mona, I don't know of anyone else that may be buried there. I've been there a couple of times. There are rocks marking unknown graves. A tree, supposedly, marks Sarah Jane Waldrep Mathews' grave. If I can be of any help, let me know. Betty

Zion/Gallaher Cemetery
Hello, I am a descendant of George Gallaher, whose burial place is in the Zion/Gallaher/Fleener cemetery in Des Moines County. I see that you have taken photos in that cemetery. I will be in that area this week, and wonder if this cemetery is still in existence, and if it is possible to visit it. George Gallaher is the only ancestor in Iowa whose gravesite my family has not visited to pay our respects. Any information/advice would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
