EDIT sent you for Gladys Reineke Harding
Hi, Elizabeth! I just sent you an obituary to add to Gladys Reineke Harding's memorial page in Oaklawn Cemetery. In re-reading the newspaper obit, the next to last paragraph says "placed beside her other and twin sister". I believe "other" should be "mother," as her mother died in 1911. You might want to add mother in parentheses after the word other. Just a suggestion since I missed it when sending. Blessings, Barb

Dear Elizabeth
thanks so much for the great work that you do. I just wanted to refer to the record for "Roger E Smith Jr." memorial record # 34073752
Please could you change the record to read Robert E Smith Jr. (or Robert Earl Smith Jr). you can check this on the grave stone.
If it is of any help his father was Robert Earl Smith Born 3 April 1913 James, Iowa, and died 9 Jun 1993, Oakland, Iowa (I have not found his grave yet) and his mother was Roma June Tyson born 19 Jun 1918, Walnut Iowa and died 9 Jan 2001 She is buried at Belknap Cemetery, Oakland - reference Find A Grave Memorial# 67505388
all the best with the records

Your kindness of transfer is welcomed and appreciated. It is my hope to continue my research of the Jamieson family and update as necessary. Joseph Hillhouse Jamieson is my original ancestor for membership to the UDC and I am always on the hunt for additional family members. Thank you for sharing and all of your numerous postings to Find A Grave. Your dedication to others is to be commended! Blessings.

Sarah McCreary & Charles Clark
Thank you for the biographies and photos. Clark is my mother in law's maiden name and I have been doing some research. Based upon the photo you have of Sarah I assume you are her family. Is there any chance their marriage year is later than 1823? That would have made her only 10 year old. I am very early on in my research and have not found any marriage records yet.

Once again, thank you.
