Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching since 1977 and I know how finding that one grave can make a real difference. I now live in Simi Valley, California and do volunteer photos in the Los Angeles area. I would gladly transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines. I will be honored to add your information to Civil War soldier memorials, but I am not transferring them because you are collecting Iowa soliders. Please do not hesitate to send me additional information and correct any errors you find in my memorials. I want the memorials as correct and complete as possible. I try to do my corrections and links within a few days of getting your message.
Please do not leave corrections, biography information OR reference information in the memorial flower area. It is not acceptable. I will add that to the memorial.

RE: J. S. Robinette

Since you agree, I think the memorial should have a "cause of death" narrative added. Having said that, and at the risk of you wanting to wring my neck (LOL!), I may be wrong on the spelling of his last name. I told you how the newspaper articles spelled his surname... with an E at the end, but that may be wrong. I just noticed someone, other than yourself, has entered ROBINETT's to that cemetery in January. Three of them appear to match your ROBINETTE's (Abijah, James & Ida), but the headstone photo is inscribed with ROBINETT.

I do not envy you the task of figuring out the correct spelling! I will not be offended in the least should you decide to throw your hands up in total frustration, and keep "J. S.'s" as you originally had it!

Have a blessed Sunday!!!!

RE: Sandra Yeakle New
OK, I misunderstood. I did contact the person asking she delete the memorial she had for Sandra.

RE: William G. Homier
Thanks, Elsetta.

Kind of hard to know what to do because there are
some other people listed on Find A Grave with the
name spelled Homeier.

William Homeier/Homier
BTW, I just notice the grave location you have on the memorial is not where I found the gravestone I posted. It was in Elmdale Addition.

I'm confused.

William Homeier/Homier
I added a gravestone photo for William (memorial # 135176662) and noted the spelling
of the surname is different. The obit
has it spelled Homeier as do other entries
I have seen online.

In most cases I do go with what is on the
stone but here I'm not sure. They do make errors on stones. The date of birth on my mother's is off by a year.

I will leave it up to you.

RE: Henry W. Funck
After I sent the note to you I looked at the obits for his kids and they also say Harry.

He must have preferred being called Harry.

I think the way you handled is just right.

RE: Memorials
It has been great working with someone so cooperative. How did you happen to pick Greenwood at one of your favorites? It is a beautiful cemetery.

I am almost done with the Opel Addition. I still have 700+ from the Elmdale Addition to put on.

When I get those done, hopefully, the weather will be nice enough to get out and take more photos.

I love finding and linking up the families.

RE: Jannet Tenneyson,

The number is 133535412. The last name was misspelled as Tenneyson so that's why it shows up on a different list.

Thanks for fixing.
