Thanks again
The "work" you are doing for families with people buried in Appanoose county, can not be under estimated. Speaking as one of many, Thank you again for all of the time, money, skill, and effort, etc. You are filling in a lot of blanks in our family history. Plus, allowing those of us who live miles from Iowa the chance to see the headstones of those we love. Blessings to you, Connie

Thanks for the Cooksey and Kincade marker photos - you've opened some new doors for me and I'm grateful for your help.

Hi, Ron. Thanks so much for reaching out to me. They are fairly distant relatives, but I definitely appreciate the offer. Thank you for all of your efforts!

Martha Ann (Blue) Carpenter
Dear Mr. Rader,
Thanks so much for posting a photo of Martha's gravesite. There are others from the Blue and Carpenter families for whom I don't have gravesite photos. I've been on sabbatical from family tree work for a few months now and will post other names at this website sometime down the line. Thanks again, for your contribution!

Warmest regards,

Steve Davis

RE: Berry and Thompson
Thank you! But no, you are doing an outstanding job. They are related to a daughter-in-law that I'm researching for. All the best ~Cindy

RE: Mary Gilbert Ervin
Wow, Ron! Thank you. That is wonderful and so extremely nice of you. Being related to her and her first husband, William, makes it special to me. You should also bring it to the attention of the person who created the memorial, connie woodward.

Thank you again,

RE: Leda Feige
That would be incredible DOn, yes and thank you for all the hard work you do.

I have no idea what area yo live in, but if you are able, and h ave time, I'd LOVE it if you could help me get pictures of my aunt leda *uncle doll ( if he is buried there) grave, as well as bradley and cora armstrong.

I think they are all there, and if memory serves right, I think they are not that far off to the 'right' from the first entracne to rose hill coming up the hill.

I know the area well, as my grandmoather, Louis johnson lived just up the hill, across from the hopsital on maple street :)))

I imagine you are very busy doing these things, so I can wait, if you are willing/able.

Gaillard Lee

P.S.-SO sorry I didnt respond earlier, as I usually use hotmail, and I neglected to associate gmail with my MS hotmail account.

I use the mail app in windows 10 to make all this easier.

I will watch gmail now to make sure I get your message, and in the process I will today, setup gmail in hotmail (mail in windows) so I am sure not to miss it.
