Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in our family history as a direct result of the avid interest of my mother and oldest sister. My life has become enriched by this desire to know where I came from. Thanks mom and sis!

I truly enjoy Find A Grave and the Find A Grave community. This growing group of volunteers is so willing to help other researchers!

I am very willing to add to and correct any of the memorials I manage and will do so as quickly as possible. Please help me out by making suggestions through each memorial's EDIT button. This makes it much easier to locate the correct memorial to make the recommended additions and corrections. It will also make certain that I see the request. Requests made through member page messages can get missed.

Thanks much!

FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS - the website below has some great tips on photographing headstones, it is a worthwhile read - check it out.

Briefly - some Do's and Don'ts
- do use reflected light to photograph hard to read stones (use a mirror or other reflective surface)
- do get down to eye level with the stone
- do fill the viewfinder with the stone
- do take some close ups and some photos showing the entire stone
- do use only distilled water and soft wood utensil (bamboo or popsicle stick) to gently remove lichens
- do use soft natural bristle brushes

- don't use chalk, flour, shaving cream, graphite, etc. to read stones (these can damage and/or stain the stone).
- don't do rubbings as the pressure can damage the stone and/or break the stone off
- don't use soaps, vinegar, club soda, bleach, or cleaning solutions of any kind
- don't use wire brushes, sharp metal objects, knives, nail files, etc.

RE: Martha Krahn Masterson
Martha's maiden name is Kincaid. Her father was Sumner Kincaid. Her mother, I suspect, is in this same cemetery, was Anna KINCAID Ankomeus. It is the Kincaid in Anna's name that I do not believe is correct as her MAIDEN name - it was her first husband's last name. I did not find what her mother's actual maiden name might be.

Martha Kincaid was first married to a Krahn and then to a Masterson (although I cannot find the first name of her second husband).

Hope this helps.

RE: Robert Tarpy and Margaret Achilles
Hi Jenean,

Thanks for your reply. I don't see my grandmother in the Find a Grave listing either. She went by Leota, so I checked for that too with no luck. I didn't find her husband either, although his parents are listed. They are entombed at Restland Cemetery in Dallas, TX.

I suppose the next step is to take and submit pictures?

RE: Charles Pool
I posted an edit to the owner of his memorial and hope to get this corrected. Charles's death date and place of burial are in the Minnesota death records.

Charles Madison Pool - Greenwood Cemetery
Thank you so much for posting the grave stone photograph! Charles actually died in Minneapolis Minnesota in 1913 and is in the 1910 census in Minneapolis with his wife and son. Also, thank you for identifying the other burials in the plot. Your work and effort are greatly appreciated!

RE: Kleeb
Thanks, Jenean, you're right - I see what you mean; sorry I wasn't clear headed enough to think it through properly. A better idea might be to mark those associated with the memorial statue as cenotaphs and put a note in the bio or notes field to see their burial memorial. What do you think?

If you like the idea, I could help locate their burial memorials and send you the ID #s via SAC on each of them, but I'd probably need a photo of each side of the memorial stone so I could zoom in on it to read the names in order to find them, unless you already have a list you could provide me. Either way, I'd gladly email you so you can send me the photos/list. No rush, of course, and I'd happily take on the project. :o)

Josephus Haptonstall #5544948
You are going to love this...Joseph S. is actually Josephus S., son of Charles William and Margaret Thomas Haptonstall. He enlisted in the Army in Company A, Illinois 59th Infantry. I am going to change his name to Josephus S, and make the links to his actual parents. You might want to change his bio to reflect the parents' names. This may be the Josephus that married Nancy Vice. Are we confused yet? Sorry about the confusion.

Josepheus Haptonstall
Okay we are good. I looked at the roster of soldiers for Co. A, Ill. 59th, and found the names Jacob and Joseph S. That has to be Josephus. Jordan is not listed in that company. This has to be a cenograph for Josephus, because he is buried in Murray Cemetery, Murray, Iowa. The C.W. buried in Westfall is a brother, Charles Wesley, and when the military went to put markers on the cemetery, they may have assumed Josephus was also buried there. At least the mystery is solved.

Josephus or Jordan?
I am inclined to believe this is Jordan. In my tree, he is the son of Charles William Haptonstall (C. W.) He is married to Mary A. Burnett, and some of his children included Suphrena, Suphrona, and Tryphonia, and William Edwin (W.E.). I have some dates for when he lived and died and where and will submit the edit.
