Bio and Links
Bio Photo My photos are not copyrighted, so feel free to use. In most cases, I have cropped and resized them before posting.

When I fill a photo request, I sometimes will check for other stones with the same surname, so check the cemetery for memorials or photos I may have added.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial for additions, corrections or transfers.


For many years I have used the P.O.W. Dad for e-mail, webpages, ect. I use it in honor of my dad , Dwayne Blackman, who spent 26 months as a P.O.W. in Germany during World War II.

RE: Frieda Sommerfeldt Peterson
She will be as happy to get it as you probably are to get rid of it. What do you think? I was happy to transfer the ones I had created. Thanks again, Paul

Frieda Sommerfeldt Peterson, #161267959
Thank you for transferring her memorial page to me for maintenance. Her brother William Sommerfeldt was my father's step-father, so a slim connection, but at least a connection.

Dear P.O.W. Dad:
My name is Richard Fleming and I am writing in behalf of Doris Bane, of Oakland, Iowa. Doris is a committee member regarding the Freedom Rock in Oakland, Iowa, upon which the image of Gen. Frank Fort Everest has been displayed.
Doris is making efforts to contact living relatives of Gen. Everest for upcoming dedication ceremonies. She may be contacted at
Thanking you for your attention, I remain,
Yours respectfully,
Richard Alden Fleming

RE: Fredrick Herman Ermeling
I was hoping you found him. But not the same person. I've looked on ancestry and found a family tree listing him as Johann Dietrich Wilhelm Ermeling born in Germany 1840 and died 1878 in St. Louis. I cannot find any documentation that this is valid. On his children's death certificates he is listed as Dietrich. Thanks so much.

Fannie Hall
Hi, I added Fannie's headstone. Her year of death is 1909 on the stone. Since you created this page can you edit the year of death.
