Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Carolyn. I am from Kansas, originally. I like helping or contributing to whatever I can. I have interests in history, writing, photography, genealogy, art, different cultures, and love animals.
I originally joined this site because I liked the idea of making sure people that walked this earth before us, had somewhere where they could be found and remembered. Though after the loss of my grandmother that I was very close to, and combining it with the loss of a friend that took his life, Find A Grave became a haven to me. I do a lot of grieving here, and this has opened me up, and made me want to pay respect and help in remembering as many people on here as I can. No-one should be forgotten.

If you have time, please stop by and see my grandmother, Nadine; my grandfather, Bert; and my friend, Adam

My family:

McCutchan, Earls, Lucy, Hitzeman, Baldwin, Collins, Thomason, Huff, Crocker, Thompson, Collingsworth, Howard, Chambers, Wims, Foerster, Schmidt, Beethe/BŁthe, Rathke, Achilles, Springston, Akin, Abercrombie, Conley/Connelly, Tarvin, Bartlow, Silverthorn, Craycroft, Vickerstaff, Norton, Hummel, Arnold, Lamphere/Lanphere, Mallory, Galyean/Gallion, Cox, Darwin, Hall, Preston, Garretson, Stoneman, Toliver, Rector, Gilbert, Perryman, Barton, Selby, Evans, Benjamin, Noble, Woodward, Ward, Lucas, Dennis, Wilson.

Through family knowledge and research, I have found out my ancestry consists of: English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Dutch, and Native American and Italian.

I will not be able to do any requests until spring arrives. The weather is too cold and harsh to do photo requests at the present time.


If anyone needs a photo of a grave from Maxwell cemetery, just let me know. I just live a few blocks away, so it'd be no problem.

At the moment, I can mostly just help with grave photos from Maxwell cemetery in Maxwell, Story county, Iowa. I can sometimes help with Woodland cemetery outside of Maxwell.

If I have added anyone's family, please let me know and I will gladly transfer it to you - it doesn't matter to me how distantly related you are to the person. I feel it's only right that people should have their family and ancestors' memorial records. I think the point of this should be to preserve history and the people in it, give people a place to pay respect to their family, and give families infomation of their family history. I do not believe it should be about owning the most memorials, or having the highest amount of entries. I would hope that others would pay me the same courtesy.

Feel free to use the photos I've taken and added, but I'd appreciate it if you cited me; it also helps to use citation, if you are using the photos for research. Thank you

Isaac Atkinson memorial stone
Dear Carolyn,

Thank you so much for the memorial stone. I was going through my memorials and saw it. This verified that his wife was there also. I have changed her plot of UKN to Maxwell Cem.

The picture is just perfect.

Thanks from another Carolyn, have you noticed, our name is starting to become familiar again?

Woodland & Peoria cemetery
Carolyn,

I recently found these 2 websites. I do not know if you knew about them. They contain burial records with plot information.

www.iowacenterwoodlandcemetery.com for the Woodland Cemetery.

www.sites.google.com/site/peoriacemetery for the Peoria Cemetery.

I found these thru the City of Maxwell website.

RE: Just Checking In
Carolyn, I is good to hear from you again. I am so sorry to hear about the unexpected death of your sister. Yes, it does have an effect on the entire family. I haven't lost one of my siblings but did lose one of my son's in a truck accident just before his 21st birthday. I am so thankful, and find great comfort, in knowing Heavenly Father's plan for our eternal family relationships. I wish you and your family the very best. I hope this Christmas will be a joyful one despite the lose of your sister.

Carolyn, Wondering how you are doing? I haven't heard from you in awhile and hope that your health has been okay/better. Me, I am still working on the French family genealogy and have some requests out for tombstone pictures. If you get a chance I would love to hear how you are doing.
