Joseph Walden--I have been researching this for days. I think that these two stones are for two different Joseph Walden's. The Civil War record birth year is way off the dates on the tall stone and the death date is even further off the date in his GAR Record. To make matters even worse, I found him in a family tree and it had a photo of a family stone for him in Kossuth County and said that his wife was Celestine, who is buried in Oakview and that he served in the 30th and 6th Iowa Infantries. He and Celestine were divorced by 1895 and she was living with her son from a previous marriage. Joseph apparently moved to Kossuth County and married again--Eliza VanVranken (I think). My guess is that someone THOUGHT he would have been buried with Celestine and ordered a stone for him, but there are no good records for military headstones ordered between 1904 and the mid 1930's or so. What I am really writing to ask you about is if you remember the location of the military headstone relative to the other one. I am thinking that they are not together since you added one and someone else added the other. Thanks for your time--and photos! Linda

Hello Roxanne,

Has your husband done a DNA test? It would be interesting to see if and how we are related.

This is a place he might want to join:

Let me know what you think.
