Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
I started out doing this for family and friends and have expanded it to others also. I love doing the research. If I have made any errors or you want anything added or changed please feel free to email me!

I am researching the Kappelman's (Kappelmann's), Holmes, Kersbergen's, Lasschuit's, Wichhart's, Rohde's, McGauvran's.

Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial page for corrections, additions or transfers .

Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any addional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please take a moment and visit my beautiful mother Katherine Kersbergen

Thank you for leaving her flowers.


Please take a moment and visit my handsome nephew Frazier Rohde

Thank you for leaving Frazier flowers.


***PLEASE NOTE: "Real life" is taking up a lot of my time lately, so please understand if it takes me days or even weeks to respond to you. Thank you! :)***

I changed her burial place to unknown. Thanks for the information and if for some reason you do find her burial place I would be thrilled to have it.
Thanks for all the work you do, have a great day.]

Hi Cindy,
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos you posted of the grave markers for Belle and her husband. I really appreciate your time and trouble! Sorry it took me so long to respond. My father has been in the hospital twice with serious problems, so my mind has been elsewhere.
Best regards,

I wanted to ask if it would be OK to use the headstone picture of Mary on my page. She was my 2nd great aunt. I will be sure to give you full credit for the picture.
Thank you in advance!

RE: Memorial# 61908781
Thank you for your quick response. I was shocked when I returned to the memorial today and saw how much was there. I was there 4 times yesterday and only 1 photo was showing, no visitor comments and barest of information for Howard. I guess the internet was having difficulties.
We did look for Howard in the 1990's using the telephone, leaving messages on answering machines. My husband was disappointed that we didn't find him because he and Howard spent a lot of time together as children. My husband and Howard looked very much alike.
Thank you again, sorry to take up your time.

Memorial# 61908781
Hello Cindy,
My husband and I have been searching for family of Howard C. Long, Jr. The Memorial# 61908781 for Howard C. Long that you posted is him.

Is he part of your family?
Is the reason he is not posted in a cemetery because he was cremated?

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated. We continue to search for his children and his siblings.

RE: Kappelman
We looked again today with no luck :(. My husband and I are stubborn though and will reach out to the cemetery office for help locating where he is buried. We live just minutes away from this cemetery so it's no trouble at all. We'll keep you posted :)

Hi Cindy,

My husband and I searched for William Kappelman today at PineHill Cemetery in Des Moines. We were able to find stones for Maude, Wesley and an F. Fern Kappelman but not for William. We will continue to search :).

Have a great night!
