Correct no headstones. I have the documentation from Jane Judt (Historical Society) who has all the documentary records which I can forward to you including the handwritten notes and unpublished journal of the daughter RLDS Pastor (J.E. Butts) who attended the funeral of at least one of the persons in that plot showing where the persons are at in that section (no headstones). I'm in the process of figuring out how they are all connected in that plot (yes they are related). If you provide me your email address, I will forward you the email chain.
Here's my email rendered so it doesn't get picked-up by the search engine.

It's a process, isn't it? I started with family in Oakland, and making progress alittle bit at a time. Thanks for the good start! I will probably request more transfers as time permits for my husband's side. Also have a correction for an old neighbor, but I want to find his obit before I send an edit to you.
We will be in Decatur also, we might find ourselves at the cemetery at the same time! Are you going to the Alumni?
Thanks for all.

|John "Mike" Kinsey||RE: Johan Burck 160238553|
Hi Sandi K!
That is pretty neat! Yes, My grandmother's maiden name was Bürck, Marie Verna
She lived with my parents her last few years. I remember her brother Rudy (Rudolf) with fond memories, and even remember their mom with her accent.
Up until a year ago, some of the older Burcks told me there were just the four boys, including my grandfather. That made researching really frustrating until I stumbled across the obit on findagrave for this site. Wow. Where they wrong! 5 sisters!
I'm still looking for son Charley, who I suspect has some issues and needed family supervision.
I'm still looking for the burial information on three of the gals, Mary Catherine, married an Asmus, Hannah, married a Roux, and Sarah Josephina who married a Vanness or Van ness. These last two lived their lives in the Council Bluffs area, so I'd guess they are buried in that same cemetery, or perhaps one close by. If you see anything, keep me in mind!

I will do that. Did you get the email about the Watsons?
Wish I had more time to be creative in my bio. I would like to have as much done on this before the Butts Bash in Spearfish SD
Thanks Sandy. If there are any of this line that you want to transfer, I will take them. I can still send you a note a time or two a year!

Sandi, Thank you for your reply, and how considerate of you to give preference to the other member's earlier memorial. I have also contacted her. And, I also have encountered some of your same issues of unintentional duplicate entries. Best wishes, Yvonne

Hello Sandi, Thank you so much for your memorial pages. Peter Amos Ives #148790673 is my g-grandfather, the father of my grandmother, Jeanette Ives Boyll #19794049. (Btw, there is another memorial pg for Peter at #38369848.)First: Peter's date of birth often is seen as 1878, possibly due to the 1880 census, where he is age 2 mos., not 2 yrs. He was born May 24, 1880, as reflected in his WWII draft registration & other places. Second, I would like to request management of Peter's memorial page, or to have a link established to his daughter Jeanette at memorial #19794049, if that can be done going from father to daughter. Thank you, Yvonne (member #47992943)

Thanks for your good work on Find A Grave. Bill is my second cousin but I did not know him personally, I did not even have Melva on my tree until I just saw your question and added her. I have know knowledge of her....sorry. Thanks again for creating the memorials, it is very helpful for extended family to be able to find them and gain information for their family trees!!
Have a wonderful day!!!

|Kathy Vaughn Bowlin||RE: Mike & Aleice|
Thanks very much for making the corrections. It is just so much easier I someone has full names when searching for ancestors. I have learn this in the process of doing out family tree. Especially when you have ancestors with similar names. Can you explain all I would be responsible in this position? I will be looking forward to your email.

|E. Higgins||RE: 151212080 Louis Schroeder|
Thanks so much, Sandi! That extra information is so very useful. My dad's cousins walked the cemetery some years ago and could not find the stone. I do not know if they had plot information to go on. I did find reference to a stone being provided in the ancestry document "Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, 1879-1903" which shows that the Vermont Marble Company provided a stone. Unless there was some government embezzlement???? Not sure what's going on.
Do you have the exact information on when the plot was purchased? I did find his date of death in the Michigan death records as Feb 8, so I will add that.
Any other info? Thanks for transcribing all those Oak Hill records. Maybe sometime when I'm back in Chicago we'll take a field trip over to the cemetery and see what we can find, since you have posted the plot information.
Thanks for transferring!
