Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Navy Reserve officer as well as civil servant. Brought up in a very patriot family of Nelsons and have keen interest in genealogy. One continuing effort of mine is to document all cemeteries within York County, Virginia, and updating all current listing of graves in Find A Grave. If you know of family cemeteries in York County, not listed in Find A Grave, please contact me.

During 2013 I added many memorials to the Oakland Cemetery in Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa, where several of my ancestors are buried (Rankin, Irwin, & Thomasson. Mutiple sources were used to increase the listing of interments from just over 2,000 to the current number. All the effort is intended with non-commercial use and not for any group. I realize original transcription errors exits and will be corrected as all memorials are photographed. I will be glad to transfer to family members any grave. My objective is to give opportunities to find families not previously recorded in FIND A GRAVE. Note: I provided funeral record information to include vault type: ashes, urn, steel, concrete, cement, box (wood), Wilbert, Doric, styrofoam, paper, and wood. The term 'box' refers to a wooden casket/container which is less expensive to many families in the past. Please note, any Oakland Cemetery memorial may have copyright restriction where the contributor "Thomas" is shown.

RE: Oakland Cemetery - R's & Ra's Listing
I will send it privately. I did find a couple others deleted as well. Any news on what is going on with the deleted memorials?

To have memorials edited for inactive maintainers of memorials, this is what I do. Send the edit the normal why. Make sure the box is checked where a copy of the wanted edit comes back to you. When it comes back to you, you then forward the email to the email: /// I then tell them why I am forwarding to them. Person is inactive, it's been 3 months since I sent this to be edited, etc. I hope this helps. It always works for me.

I do not know. Mr king left all his memorials to Dottie Kunselman. She was overwhelmed and split with me and a few others to help. She might would know. She is on my friend list if you do not know her. Maybe she can help? : - )
