|Bio and Links|
I worked as a police dispatcher for 37 years for the Centerville Police Department and Appanoose County Sheriff's Office in Iowa, retiring in 2003. I have always been interested in local history and cemeteries. I have been researching my family history for 30 years. I am President of the Appanoose County Genealogical Society and Chairman of the Appanoose County Pioneer Cemeteries Commission. I have researched the people of the Centerville Police Department and Appanoose County Sheriff 's Office; Centerville Mayor's; Coal mining deaths in Appanoose County; Civil War soldiers buried in Centerville's Oakland Cemetery. Also African-Americans buried in Appanoose County. I am presently researching the persons buried in the Appanoose County Farm Cemetery.|

|Donald Bitner||RE: Your Profile Picture|
Hey, I like this Profile Picture VERY well. The other picture, besides being upside down, it was too small. Was this Oakland Cemetery?
|Donald Bitner||Your Profile Picture|
I like your Profile Picture. I think you have been upside down long enough, you may pass out, Don.

Sally Reed Holbrook at Evergreen Cemetery. I have added a photo to her memorial.

If you ever want to manage these Reed memorials, let me know. I can transfer them to you.
|Elizabeth French||RE: Jane Maxwell|
Unfortunately, I did not see a grave marker for her husband. There was an unmarked grave on one side of her plot.

|Cindy Lovell & Steve Hols||Joseph Shafer Find A Grave 49411305|
Gary, I believe your Joseph Shafer Find A Grave Memorial# 49411305 is a duplicate of Find A Grave Memorial# 14092569 created by Shelli Steedman in 2006.
Your birthdate is different but if you do the math of age at enlistment (28) in 1861 that would make his birth closer to 1833.

Thank you for the information of the correct cemetery, I have updated their memorials. Are you related? If you are, please let me know, and I will transfer. Merry Christmas
