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. (see below).

Sorry I don't have any information. I just took some names off the request page and wandered around the cemetery with my camera and a cigar looking for the stones.
yes it was pretty chilly but the fresh air was nice
|Dolores Maxwell||RE: John Edward Davenport - Memorial# 3395493|
I didn't leave the note regarding Mr Davenport. Underneath the flag I left for him, you'll find that someone identified as L Davenport left the note stating that he was a wagoner. Since they have the same surname, it's possible that they are related. I suggest you inquire to L Davenport.

Hello Again -
I'm just curious what the names are on the 6 children's gravestones beneath the parents Asaph C. Buck and Sarah Struthers Buck. I see 3 of the children have gravestones there, possibly as well as Nettie Marie Buck, wife of Alfred E. Buck. But I'm curious who the other gravestones are for.
Thanks for any info you can provide on this.
I'm descended from Asaph's brother Elmour.
- Janet, California

PS - I forgot to put the memorial number for the other memorial: Sarah Ellen Buck #35408908.

Hello Thomas - I just now discovered a duplicate memorial for this person. It is managed by Thelma Kifer and I sent her a message about this, too.
Her memorial doesn't have the photo of the gravestone and she has a different death year (1877) but it looks as if your year is correct - 1878. Her memorial does have the parents linked.
I hope you two can get it straightened out!
Thanks - Janet
|DOUGLAS JOHN SHACKLEY||RE: Nicolas Martiau|
You are very welcome. I have happy to sponsor direct relatives of my. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into researching information for the memorial page.
Somehow we are most likely related to each other.
Greeting from California.

Thank you for connecting Harry with his Parents. Now the Family is all together on Harry's father and mother's site, even though they were buried apart.
