How can I get a hold of Judy Repperger ? This information you have concerning biological to Harry A., and Jasper Newton Smith intrigues me. My grandmother is Ruth Ellen Smith( Harry A,and Jasper's sister).

Thank You
Thank you so much, Kathy, for transferring my uncle's memorial. I also want to thank you for your time and energy in making Find a Grave such a valuable resource for genealogists and family members who want to preserve their heritage and pass on their love for those they have lost. It takes a very special kind of person to be so dedicated to this endeavor. Wishing you the very best.

Transfer of 8035147
I would like to request a transfer of my Uncle Eddie Hall's Memorial. Have been trying to get all the deceased brothers and sisters together so I can write about their lives. It would be so greatly appreciated.

Please create a Find A Grave page for her husband since you created hers. You can create the info from Anna's page and use the photo on her page as both names are on the same stone.

His birth and death dates are on the stone. Of course her info is there and where they are buried is there. He just died in Aug 2015 which is why a page was never created when hers was.

If I get more information, I will let you know.

Hi Kathy,
Try not to put a space between the Mc and the rest of the last name, unless that is very clear on the stone. It is rare that the name is spelled that way. It is causing duplicates to be made.

August & Frederica Wallbaum
This is in reference to:
Riverside Cemetery, Charles City, Iowa.
Plot: Range 17, Section 19, Row 17, Space 5 and 6

Find A Grave# 69052340 - August Wallbaum (1814-1895)
Find A Grave# 69052366 - Frederica Wallbaum (1814-1892)

You took these pictures in 2011. They are my 3rd great-grandparents. I tried to zoom in on these pictures, but nothing is readable. I was wondering, if by chance, you still have the original pictures? And if so, are they at a higher resolution?
