My husband and I have spent much of our lives the business of cemetery memorials which we always thought of as helping preserve family histories.
We hope we can help others find their ancestors and this seems a great place to start.
If we have entered a name and photo that is your family, please let me know if you wish to have a transfer of ownership per the transfer guidelines.
To have an obit added to a grave, please follow the guidelines listed in Frequently Asked Questions - Also please do not include names of survivors in the obituary.
Corrections, additions, transfers, etc. please use the edit tab. (all other corrections or additions will be ignored)
Please remember the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal is to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

|deanna french||RE: Washington Co. Potter/Ballard Civil War Veterans|
Thank you so much! You are much appreciated. I found you as a contributor in Wakefield too. (Lewis Laflin) May I use that, also for the Civil War site? And---maybe there's more. Kansas has a lot of territory!!! My goal is to find soldiers/sailors/nurses that had ties/roots in Vermont, either by birth, enlistment, service etc. OH My--just found 2 more,Roger Tubbs in Exeter and Erastus Hinds, from Clay Center.
If you are interested in the Civil War, check out the F.A.G memorial of Erastus Hinds. He was from Eden,Vt prior to going to Kansas There's a letter on the page that I found in an ancient news paper & the webmaster of the C.W. site posted it. There were several Hinds boys that went to war--If I remember right there were 6 brothers & 2 cousins. They had some bad times.I lived in Eden for 20 years, so got attached to the town, thus its history & did quite a bit of research up there.I was so happy to see his burial spot listed--it made my day!!
|Amy||Henry Sand #32477481|
First thank you for all your hard work on these memorials. I believe that this gentleman is my 3rd great grand uncle. A man by the name of John Henry Sant is named as a son in the will of my 4th great grandfather, John Sand, who died around 1845 in Lee County, IA. By 1850, Henry's mother, Elizabeth, has apparently also died, because Henry Sand and his younger sister live with another of my 4th great grandfathers, John Holtkamp. In 1860, he is living with my 3rd great grandfather, who married his older sister, Mary Adelade Sand Holtkamp. He marries Mary Vorwaldt in 1868 in Lee County and lives in that area before moving to Nebraska some time between 1880 and 1900.
You mention on his memorial that there was a death certificate. Would you be willing to share that certificate or any additional information it might contain? I'm especially interested to see if it gives his parents' names. There is some question of whether or not he and his older sister (my ancestor) share the same mother, and I'm hoping to learn more.
PS--If this is the Henry Sand I believe it is (and evidence points to yes), his being named in his father's will on 8/19/1845 eliminates the 1846 birthdate as a possibility.
Thank you for any information you can share!

Hi. I received your notice and as you seem to be writing on behalf of TLC you can hopefully forward the information to her for me. She leaves no email and has disabled her message function so there is no way to contact her. I did find the duplicate per an email from her earlier this month. Her memorial has only basic info from the headstone, however, whereas mine has a number of links and full information from the family information. I wanted to ask her if she would be willing to delete her own memorial to avoid the excess work involved in transferring the information. If the numbers of memorials is important to her, I would be happy to transfer management to her. What is important to me is that the information is available and linked. If you would pass this on, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Thank you for taking pics of the Fisher grave markers in Clifton IOOF Cemetery; I was in the hospital for many months when you posted these and I don't think I ever thanked you. I very much appreciate your efforts. God bless you, David
Thank you for taken your time to get the photos of the stones.

This has been confusing but I think I understand it now. In Zion cemetery there is a Hilda Bill Hiesterman (1879-1944) grid 1.13E+08 and a Olinda Hilda Schuenhoff Biel (1891-1944) grid 1.14E+08.
Hilda Bill Hiesterman is buried among 4 other Hiesterman graves.
Hilda Bill Hiesterman is buried with Arnold Hiesterman.
I can send you a chart if you use my email address.
