Flowers and Notes are always welcome and it makes my day when I find a new one. Please ask before posting my family pictures on other websites. With the linking system, it's clear who my family members are. Grave stone pictures may be freely copied and used as you wish if you give credit to the source. I merely wish to avoid confusion if I find a picture somewhere that looks familiar to me, or if someone else needs to know exactly where the picture came from. I am always looking for new relatives. Any additional information is always appreciated. Photos are greatly welcomed. Thank You. If I can be of service in regards to any of the people I have listed, please do not hesitate to contact me. Often, I do not list exact causes of death, as they are too unfortunate and/or disturbing to list. In most cases, I choose to list nothing at all, as I wish to be truthful, yet sympathetic to those still living. In addition, it is not of vital importance, except to those interested, and/or family members. In certain situations, I do not know what the exact cause of death was. In regards to biographies, every family has its secrets, most of which will not be mentioned. Most records where I have a listing of the person's children, if the children are step or adopted, I will not specify them as such, so as not to offend anyone. I am an Iowan, with roots in Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, England, Ireland, Norway, and Germany. I also have family connections to several other states and countries. My current and future listings consist mainly of family, close friends, and some friends of friends. Sometimes it is an infant or small child found in the newspaper or a local funeral home online. If anyone wants to know more about me, carefully view my many listings. I could be called a historian in general. I will occasionally take over management of listings to assist grave transcribers, etc. If they are not of personal value to me, I will gladly transfer those listings to family or friends of the deceased. Cemeteries and the like have fascinated me since I was a mere 7 years old. I am a fan of Jimmy Stewart, Olivia de Havilland, Shirley Temple, and Margaret O'Brien, who are at the top of my very long list. I am unable to do photo requests at this time, unless I find a cemetery that I plan on going to shortly, as I do not always have the capabilities to fulfill them. I Do Not Do Transfers unless you have a closer relationship to them than me. Relatives by marriage may be an exception. If you are not going to make any additions or corrections, unless it is a close relative or friend, please don't ask. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.-Matthew 5:8.
