Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE remember that an INSCRIPTION is something WRITTEN ON THE STONE. It is not something you found somewhere else or something near the stone.

I have been working on genealogy for about 45 years and my husband, Roy, and I are also working on a project to identify and photograph burial places of Civil War veterans in Iowa. He is the State Graves Registration Officer for the Iowa Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW). For more complete lists of Civil War Veterans by county, please check the SUVCW National Graves Registry.

I have Virtual Cemetery of Civil War Veterans buried in Iowa which now has over 18,500 names but is unsearchable because Find a Grave will not search if there are over 10,000 names. I have contacted them several times about this issue and would appreciate it if you would also contact them at to tell them that you would like to access this Virtual Cemetery. Maybe if enough people ask, they will fix this problem. I am fairly certain that I am not the only one with this issue.

If you are a relative of someone I have posted a memorial for--that is NOT a relative of mine--I would be glad to transfer management to you. I do have a personal policy of NOT transferring memorials to anyone who is listed as Anonymous, though.

Please feel free to use my photos as you like, but I would appreciate photo credit if you use them on another website.

If you have a comment, question,or correction to any of my Memorials, please use the Edit on the Memorial page. It is much easier to find the correct person that way. Additions and corrections which are phrased rudely as demands may be ignored. If you do not have contact information or allow public messages, like gensekr, please do not send me corrections.

RE: Francis Holtslander at Aspend Grove
I removed the pic from the son, I didn't even pay attention to his birth year or I wouldn't have attached it to him. I did upload the pic I took to the father's memorial though since it has been completely cleaned since the original pic was taken.

8413388 and 158843698 Duplicate
This is my great aunt. Her maiden name was Mathis. Christine Mathis. My sister was named after her. Her brother was Joseph Nathan Mathis, my grandfather on my materal side.

I know you are supposed to delete the newest and go with the first documented,but the 8413388 was done in 2004 and does not have 1/2 of the info in the duplicate 158843698 which was posted in 2016.

Please delete the 2004 memorial and leave the newer one with the links and information if possible.

Thank you,
Connie Rifenburg
