Death is only the beginning
Jessie Marie Reavis Jochims
This was my great grandmother. Buried in Oak Hill in Tama, Iowa. My family went all over that cemetery today but couldn't find it. I see you did, but there was no photo, so we couldn't locate the grave. Could you tell me where the grave is located? Thanks!

RE: Zinkers
Zinkers are "stones" made of zinc. They were advertised and sold as "white bronze". They were manufactured c. 1880 to World War I when the metal was needed for military purposes.

See my Find A Grave homepage for a link to a virtual cemetery of white bronze. In Montezuma, Francis and Mary Johnston have one. Out walking and looking for the white bronzes, they have a somewhat blue shade. The stones were manufactured in several places but most in this area were made in Des Moines by the Western White Bronze Company.

The memorials were essentially put together as needed; panels could be added easily when a new family member joined the plot. The panels were screwed into place as needed. Many thought them tacky/cheap and some cemeteries banned them. Woodland in Des Moines is chock full of zinkers.

RE: Kirker in Guernsey Cemetery
Locator, I added John Kirker and need his first wife, Elizabeth. He has a daughter that passed at a young age before 1881. They should all be in the same section. Thanks again, Dave Jindrich

Kirker in Guernsey Cemetery
I'm looking for the internments of John and Elizabeth Kirker; John's second wife, Sarah or Sally Kirker. John's children from the first marriage names Kirker, and Sarah's children from a previous marriage named Hungerford. They should all be in Guernsey Cemetery near Laura Kirker. If you have a little time to verify the information, I'm most appreciative. Thank you, Dave Jindrich

Thank you
I just want to thank you for all the corrections and helping make the memorials more complete, I really do appreciate it . The new correction system makes it so easy to do them now, it is amazing and such a time saver, since my 1 and 3 yr old take up a lot of my free time it allows me to get them done in just a few minutes ! Thanks again and keep em coming :) Have a great memorial day weekend !
