Bio and Links
I will gladly add information that someone wants added to a memorial that I have made. I will transfer to DIRECT relatives (parents and grandparents). I do need information before transfer is made though, your membership number, your name, etc., and how you are related.

Please use edit tab for any corrections. It makes it easier to make revisions. Links, revisions and corrections sent in messages may not get taken care of very quickly.

For any memorial I have added I will make family connections. I can only connect to parents, not children. It is quite impressive to see how far the family line can go. I thoroughly enjoy my work with find a grave.

Before asking for a transfer, PLEASE read the FAG guidelines and rules. If you are requesting a transfer, PLEASE tell me how you are related so I can determine if the transfer will be made.

Due to the large number of people requesting transfers just so they can control a distant family member, I'm limiting my transfers to IMMEDIATE FAMILY, meaning parents, siblings, and grandparents, and I would appreciate being ASKED nicely to transfer instead of receiving demands. Please realize that you can't expect to have every single family member page in your care as there are thousands of contributors on this site and trees do overlap. I do not control every one of my relation on FAG, and don't expect to. I'm just happy to have them there so I can refer to them if needed.

It is my hope the work we are doing, will benefit the next generations in their family tree search.

Thank You every one that have/will email me corrections.

Harold & Bonita Meier
I have asked for edits on Dons father. His name is Harold Sigmund Schoentag 1902-1938. He died in Iowa City from complications from surgery. Grace was his Mom. You can't read the marker. Grace worked in the grocery store in Oelwein for years. Probably be forever waiting on the edit for the Dad. Bonita Meyer Meier

May I have your permission to use your wonderful pictures of Lydia Ensey and William T. Gardiner on my Ancestry tree? Lydia was a distant cousin. Thanks!

John Dalton
Memorial 35768201
Hi Diane,
My name is John Dalton
I am asking for correction of the above memorial for a change
The obit shows 1884 as year born, record shows 1885.
You may not see me as family, but as of a few weeks ago I met my half siblings through DNA testing, and confirmed that Frank and Olga are my Grandparents. ( I was adopted out at 3 days)

Garland Callanan
The problem is you have the in-correct spelling of Callanan. The marker is correct . The correct spelling brings up obits in Sumner paper. Thanks Bonita Meyer Meier

Diane, Terry Carson is not buried in the Blue Grass Cemetery. His obituary says he was buried in Durant Cemetery, Durant, Iowa. I am in possession of the official burial records for Blue Grass Cemetery. -- Sandra Tennyson

Elizabeth Benue Freeman
You have incorrect information about Elizabeth Freeman. Her maiden name was Bowne, not Benue. There are several variations in the spelling (Bowne,Bonue,Boune,Bonne,etc.) Her parents were Judge James Bowne and Mary (Stout)Bowne. Mary Bowne was the daughter of Richard and Penelope Stout. Elizabeth was born in Woodbridge New Jersey 1763. If you look at the marriage record you can see it does say Elizabeth Bowne (Bonne) married Henry Freeman May 16, 1695.

2. Also many more articles on the Stout family, Bowne Family etc.
**If you look up Penelope Stout there are many articles about her
**Mary Stout Bowne and Judge James Bowne are my 8th
**Elizabeth (Bowne) Freeman & Henry Freeman are my 7th G-Grandparents.
