Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in the corner of three counties northwest of Des Moines, but are willing to extend beyond that to help someone find their loved ones resting place.
When we search for family stones, we usually take photos of stones that aren't on FAG in the same cemeteries we are searching.
My husband Alan has become involved in taking the photos. Many times he will make comments and sign his name.
We both enjoy the great outdoors and doing lots of walking. Volunteering is one of our passions, helping others.

Thank you so much for locating and photographing my great great grandmother's gravestone! It is so nice to see it, and know it's still there after all these years.
Kind Regards,
Dave from Dallas

RE: Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery
Normand Edwards just passed away in 2013.
He was either cremated or he does not have a marker yet. I'm sure he would be by his 3 children if he is buried there.He marker would match his children's markers also.
Again thanks for checking.

I see you made the memorials for the Edwards family. Do you know if Normand Edwards is also buried there, I can not locate a final resting place for him.

Good morning, I was just wondering if you were related to Mr. Hanson?

Thank you for all you do.

Hello Bethalene,

First I want to thank you for all your hard work in supporting these sites.
I believe you have an error in Find A Grave Memorial #102208953.

You show Hannah Spohn Hupp ( born 4 Mar 1816- Died 24 Dec 1887)as being married to Eli Hupp ( Born 23 apr. 1844- Died 24 Apr. 1916 ) This is not correct.

Hannah was married to John Hupp,( Born 1816- Died 1847) his second wife and his first wife was Mary Donohue. Eli Hupp was never married and he is the son of John Hupp and Hannah Spohn Hupp.

I hope this is helpful.

I very much appreciate that you made the memorial for my husband's great grandfather. I just learned his name less than an hour ago. Thanks, too, for the photo.

I would like to ask for your permission to use that photo (and others you may have taken of gravestones of my ancestors) in my family tree on Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web site of the memorial(s) as the source.

Thank you for considering my request,
