30 Aug 2015 - I am currently working on adding photos to the Ormanville Cemetery near Ottumwa, Iowa. I have photographed the entire cemetery and have added almost 100 new names to the Findagrave page for Ormanville. There are a few graves that will remain unidentifiable because there are no names or identifiable info on the markers or stones.

I have logged about 4+ hours in Ormanville. By 'logged,' I mean that is the total amount of hours I have spent wandering around the cemetery taking photos.

(southwest) of Ottumwa, Iowa.
98 - names I've entered
360 - total for Rose Hill


27 Aug 2015 - I am still working on uploading photos for Rose Hill Memorial Gardens, but not as often as I should. As soon as I finish doing the Ormanville photos, I will return to Rose Hill and try to do the remaining 700+ photos I haven't processed.

I have logged about 45+ hours in Rose Hill.

RE: Ormanville Cemetery - Davis Photos
Thanks for your efforts, if you have a photo that would be nice, but don't go out to the cemetery again unless it's something your wanting to record! Those Davis graves are probably unmarked!
