I tried to enhance the photo to get the words and letters to stand but the stone is very light and it was hard to read in person. If you want the epitaph, I can ask someone to transcribe it. Cold wind kept me from try to write it down.

You are welcome for the visit to find the Barton grave. You may want to contact the cemetery office and see who else is in that plot, in case there is a monument for someone else.

Hi Dugg - I noticed your photo request for Harvey & Martha in the Bower Cemetery. You may have already discovered that they are actually buried a few miles away in the Crain Cemetery, but in case you haven't - here's a link to Harvey's gravestone in Crain;

You are very welcome, Thomas Thorn

You were right that her initial was a P for Phelps. I have upgraded her memorial with death certificate and liked her to her parents

I've transferred management of these two memorials to you. I'm more interested in the family of Caleb and Chloe (Hamilton) White, if you have anything. James H. Ross was the third husband of their daughter, Harty.

Thanks for your e-mail.
I am leaning towards "my" Jeremiah being the son of Frederick and Eliza, but I'd love some "proof"; there's another Jeremiah a few years younger that's the son of Hezekiah and Amanda who also lived in New London in 1850. Neither one of their reported ages matches up with the headstone.
The only thing I've seen that makes me think the parents are Frederick and Eliza is a mention in Martha's obit that identifies her first husband as Fred Lee, maybe the submitter of information gave the father in law's name? I haven't had any luck in finding a newspaper article or anything like that.
If you have any type of lead I'd appreciate it, I'm in California and don't have any plans on getting to Iowa to do hands on research anytime soon.

Green Mound Cemetery, Henry Co, IA _ 48903211
Kent Kooi and I have been doing research on the men of the 4th Iowa Cavalry for over three years. We would also like to ask your permission to use your headstone photo of William Foster in a Power Point presentation we are putting together to donate to the historical societies in several Iowa counties. We would credit the photo as "Courtesy of Dugg" or your name if you'd care to share. Please let me know and thank you for your help.
Kathy and Kent

Did you click on the photos to see the text I included?
I don't recall seeing the "no marker" in a memorial page but I think it might be a good idea. Who knows, it may prompt some good soul to do something about it!
(And you're very welcome!)
|Leslie T||RE: Harriet Boldman|
I made an error! Ann Koch pointed it out. I didn't realize that there is a Hattie Boldman buried in Dayton. Harriet is buried in the same section but I did not find a marker with Harriet's name on it. I mistakenly thought Hattie was a "nickname" and not being familiar with the family I didn't realize that she wasn't the wife of S. L. Boldman. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you or your family. I have removed the photos from her memorial. I still have access to the photograph of the section Harriet is buried in (the one with the three headstones) if you would like to have it e-mailed to you, please let me know. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, my apologies.
