Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in 2001 after 31 years as an agent with the U.S. Border Patrol and USINS. I also then worked two years on a contract with DHS. I have been active in cemetery research in Clay County, MO, for a number of years. I have also enjoyed doing research to locate the graves of some of the Medal of Honor recipients whose graves were never marked, or who never received the recognition due them.

Anyone may use any of my photos from Find A Grave for their own historical research. If you need one of my memorials transferred to you, let me know.

Lately, I have been trying to track down the graves of the men of the 4th Iowa Cavalry. I have met some very helpful members, and thank them for everything they have done to help me.

Your Photo

Hello Kent,

Your photo is precious! I checked your bio as I found your photos at the Cates Cemetery in Caldwell County. I then looked at your page and just had to tell you it's one of best photos I've seen for a Find A Grave volunteer.

RE: Mathias Schmitz
Sorry Kent, I just now saw your message. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on Mathias military service record. I have seen the widow pension, but unable to verify if it is my gGGrandfather. Good luck with your search..

RE: Watkins cem.
Thank you Kent! That would be good if you could do that. And yes I was in awe of that house even that long ago. My love of history and old houses seems to have always been a part of me. I have seen the house at Watkins Mill and to me James Watkins home was more impressive. Don't remember how high the ceilings were but they were very high, I remember the going up the main stairs and going thru the bedrooms, and down the smaller stairway down to the kitchen. It needed a lot of work but still so beautiful.

Thanks for helping
