Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Washington County In the rural area of Riverside, Iowa. I began back in 1986 researching which lead me to expanding my genealogy to my wife' side of the family. This is how I met and made friends with David McMonigle. I have tried to help with pictures of grave stones in our county.

Please Be aware I am glad to give any and all photos I have taken of grave stones for your use in any way you wish to use them. I am also glad to transfer any memorials that I did out of respect for family because they might have been unable to otherwise do themselves at any particular time frame. If you request a DVD of cemetery stones photos in my possession I will be glad to mail one to you. I will also email a photo to you upon request.

A note: In 2011 I was hospitalized in January and again in July. I am just now recovering in great condition But I wish to let you all know that my plans for traveling to cemetery's has suffered because of my health I have all the stones in Shiloh North and South In Washington County. I have not posted them because I had unfortunately lost my 2 computers and I have just built one new computer as of this week of November 2011. I was able to recover all my photos and plan to get back taking pictures next year. I will try my hardest to visit as many cemetery's in Washington County so I can fulfill photo requests and also post pictures that I can Identify. Shiloh South is in quite a disarray and many stones are unreadable or missing/broken. It is a shame and should be restored by competent Historical restoration teams. Thank everyone for your kindness and patience.

Hello Robert
The cemetery stone photo you added to Mary (Sparr) Beanblossom 79310045 memorial in Shiloh Cemetery, Washington County, Iowa.

I was wondering if you would be so kind to add the same photo to Anna Chute 102901512 and George Chute 102901666. As the broken stone in front of Mary Beanblossom stone is their stone.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Samuel Cocklin
Hi Bob

I do hope you are up and doing better, now.

Just wanted you to know that I found what the problem, with burial records on Samuel Cocklin. I had a memorial for in Elm Grove cemetery. Samuel Cocklin 1811-1891 is buried in Shiloh, with Catharine according to the records of Shiloh cemetery, that Sue sent to me. And the Iowa Grave Survery has got it all wrong. I don't know how they had both Samuel and Catharine in Elm Grove. It is Samuel's grandson (Samuel J Cocklin 1874-1947) that is buried in Elm Grove cemetery with his wife, Adda May "Adams" Cocklin 1876-1960. (I didn't know that they were there but got photos today confiming who is buried in Elm Grove).

I have corrcted Samuel's (1811-1891), burial location to Shiloh cemetery. Think you said that there were no other stones around Catharine, so I guess Saumuel never got a headstone.

At least we got it straightened out!!

Have a good night.

Hi Bob

Your Welcome!

I guess maybe just keep an eye out for a stone for Samuel in Elm when you go there. At this point I don't know what cemetery to list his burial in. Maybe the listing at Elm will help!

Hope you had a great 4th of July.

RE: Catharine Cocklin/ Shiloh cemetery
Hi Robert

You must be a saint or at least I think so. I also think it is great to preserve family history. I think it is wonderful what & how you feel abt making family connections.

I have a photo request in Elm Grove for Samuel Cocklin 1811-1891. I am hoping that he is there. Got the info from Iowa Graves Survey.

Samuel's 2nd wife, Catharine is in Shiloh cemetery. The Iowa Graves Survey stated that both Samuel and Catharine were in Elm Grove. Sue sent me the log on Shiloh cemetery and it states that both Cahtarine and Samuel are buried in Shiloh. Just wanted to give you a heads up that if you don't find Samuel in Elm Grove and if there was no stone for him in Shiloh, that maybe he doesn't have a stone. And we really don't know which cemetery he is buried in.
