Bio and Links
Bio Photo This has been my hobby for over seven years, started long before I discovered any websites for posting them.
I find myself concentrating on the older, broken, unreadable tombstones, the ones that, because of layers of mold, lichen and grime, are so obscure that people tend to walk right past them. I get more satisfaction uncovering a lost individual's stone than I do photographing huge monuments that will be around for a thousand years and those more modern ones of the men whose bones have partially disintegrated while still clothed in the everlasting polyester suits that they were buried in!

Correction to Margaret Rawlings
Could you please make these corrections?
This is my grandfather's family and I have done much research on his family.
Margaret Calvert Rawlings # 85013617

Add spouse: Simon Harker. 1808 - 1850 # 11719098

Remove spouse Samuel Rawlings 1793 - 1867 #85013709

Add second spouse. Samuel Rawings, Jr. 1826 - 1888 # 85013658

She actually was married to the younger Samuel Rawlings.

They are all buried in Center Grove, Dubuque, Iowa
I hope this will correct some of the calculated relationships on their memorials.

Thank you.

RE: Michael English
Thanks a lot! Her name was Honora O’Malley English but the Iowa deathrecord lists her as “Hannah” which was a common mistake for the Irish name which seemed to confuse census takers. It’s also possible ancestry typists misread the old handwriting. Michael King English and Honora came form Ireland to Marcellus, NY near me which is also where my Irish Coyne family settled. They all came from the same parish in Co. Galway Ireland. They had a couple children who died there and are buried in St. Francis Cemetery there and their oldest daughter, Mary, married Peter Coyne there and stayed and is also buried there with her husband. In 1868 the Englishes and the family of Austin Welsh (Walsh) left Marcellus for Iowa. I believe Austin and is wife, Margaret (siser to Honora) are in the same cemetery.

I guess that won't make sense. You have to type {a href=""}Matt G. Gansemer{/a} but use the < and > brackets in place of the { } and replace the name and URL with the correct memorial for the other brother.

You have Mr. Gansemer listed as a child of Peter and his wife Elizabeth. I believe he was actually Peter's brother.
You can still link these two brothers by adding a link in the bio.
Matt G. Gansemer
maybe adding this after "Brother of" on Peter's Bio
and this on Matt's Bio
Brother of Peter John Gansemer
Always very awesome work you have done here.

Picture correction please
Thank you so much for the current information on several of my family members, however, there is an error of a picture. You currently have a picture of Jim McNeil on John McNeil's grave information. Jim McNeil is currently alive and currently living in East Dubuque. John F. McNeil is intured. The number is #131201306.
Also, John F. McNeil has a missing sibling, as well as my mother Eileen T. McNeil Brady. Both of these have a sister of Patricia Breason.
Thanks for your assistance to this!
