I'm generally glad to transfer ownership of a memorial if you take some special interest in the person. Just use the edit tab to request a transfer.

You are welcome to use any photos I post.

I'm happy to take any questions you have regarding sources for the information in any of my memorials, or for any edits that I submit.

I don't mind deleting a memorial of my own to resolve a duplicate memorial situation - as long as the other memorial is in the correct cemetery.

Many of the memorials which I have added are based on one of the following sources:

Riverside Cemetery, Denver (large pdf)

Willard Genealogy, edited by Charles Henry Pope, 1915

Lone Tree Cemetery, Johnson County, Iowa

Union Cemetery, Humboldt, Iowa

Belmond Cemetery, Iowa

Marklesburg Reformed Cemetery

Marklesburg Union Cemetery

Mount Vernon and Lisbon Iowa Cemeteries

Mt Zion Lutheran Cemetery, Huntingdon Co.

Perry County, Pennsylvania Cemeteries

New Church Hill Cemetery, Juniata County

Westminster Cemetery, Mifflintown

WPA Graves Registration Survey, Iowa

Iowa Gravestones Photo Project

Kennekuk Cemetery, Kansas

RE: Viola Flinn - Denver, Colorado
True, true! Thanks so much. For a second I thought you were referring to my Grandmother who was also Viola Flinn. My Grandmother Viola was named after this Viola who was George Flinn's 1st wife, but she died young. So I don't actually know her original birthdate, just the death date from family records. Thanks so much for looking out :)

She was my Grandmother -- Dad's Mom. I have her Social Security Application off of, but the best source I have is all of her living children -- my Dad and my Aunts and Uncle. Are you related?

Michael Walmer Obit
Thank you Bob for locating the obituary for Michael Walmer and posting it. My family (8) of them are buried at Union Clear Creek as well as Mr. Walmer. Reading the obit I see he was in 1850 in Worthington, Richfield Co Ohio which is where my family came from in 1854. It stands to reason they probably knew one another and it begs the question why they came to the same location? Word of mouth? land, family connections. Always love the history of the pioneer families.

Titley amily at Riverside Cemetery
HI Bob,
I wanted to let you know there is one more family member in the Titley family plot, by the name of Frank Titley..interment date listed as 5/6/1894, no age provided.

Also in the family plot is Lavania L Yost, I believe you have her connected to the Titley family.

John Maginnis at Riverside Cemetery
Thanks for your work. I am looking for my great great grandfather, John Maginn who lived in Denver in 1880. Why do you think this might be him? It would be quite a find if you are correct.

J.A. Van Dyke
Well, that didn't work. The interment card also had only the initials J.A. If you call them and tell them you are related, someone can pull the contract and see what that says. Do you know what his wife's name was? There is an Alma Van Dyke buried there but I don't know if she is next to him, or if she is related at all.

What's worse is that I cannot find the entry for J.A. Van Dyke in the log books that I kept while transcribing in that cemetery. I did not take photos because the headstones needed trimming and cleaning and rather than take lousy photos, I just transcribed a large portion (approximately 5,000 names). I did go back a few years later and starting taking photos, but it is quite a chore to clean and/or trim them all first.

So I asked for the location while at the office. The location they gave is NOT part of the area I transcribed and when I went out to look for the headstone, I found nothing in the area where she said it was.

So if you call them, please let me know what you find out, and ask again for the location and see what they tell you. Maybe the clerk I talked to (Jocelyn) was in error.

Ask for Monica. She has been there for MANY years. Good luck!

I am going to accept your Edits and if we find out any of it doesn't match up to this burial, we'll walk over that bridge when we get to it.

Best regards,
