Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in a small town in southeast Iowa and spend a lot of time in Graveyards and Cemeteries taking pictures, taking notes, just piecing the families together.

Some of these Cemeteries are so old that there are not any other records of the people resting there. When these cemeteries does that person's existence!
We would like to thank all of you for your contributions to the preservation of these cemeteries.
The peace and serenity found in these old cemeteries is our reward!

If there is a memorial we have added, that is not in our family, we will consider a transfer of the memorial to you.
Please use the Edit tab,(upper right hand corner of the memorial) Please do this on every memorial that you want transferred or a correction on and please include your ID number.
Thank You, Mo & Dave

Ida Myers Siverly and William S. Siverly
Thank you for connecting my great-grandparents Ida and William Siverly. Also thank you for correcting the spelling on Ida. I was surprised to see that the gravestone is mis-spelled.

William, husband of Delila could NOT have died in 1855. He is in the 1860 census.

Samuel Wallace Garvin
Hi, this Message is Regarding Samuel Wallace Garvin, memorial #140167323.I'm doing some family research and was hoping you could help me solve a couple of questions. First, on his memorial his birth is listed as June 18, 1880 and then in the bio underneath, it is listed as September 28, 1836. I was wondering if this was an error, due to his father's birth, in the same bio, being listed as June 18, 1808? Also I think there might be a duplicate memorial with a different burial listed. Samuel Wallace Garvin memorial # 9622570, is listed as being born in 1836, death April 1,1924 in Inglewood, California. This Memorial lists Emma Fitch as his wife. Not 100% sure, but I think this is the same person. Sincerely, Paula Wilkinson Leach

Memorial Transfer Request
I would like to request a tranfer of Memorial #66875595 August Johann Moebius. He is my 2nd great grandfather who remarried & moved from Burlington to Mt. Pleasant after his first wife died. I do not know the name of his 2nd wife but do know that they had no children.

Thank you for your work with Find A Grave and thank you for your consideration of this request.

Leah Brenneman
Hi-thank you so much for the changes you made for Leah's headstone. I realized her last name should be spelled BrennEman instead of with an A so I sent another correction. Until a few days ago I didn't realize she had been a part of the family. Thanks to folks like you, families are being reunited!
