Bio Photo We live in a small town in southeast Iowa and spend a lot of time in Graveyards and Cemeteries taking pictures, taking notes, just piecing the families together. Some of these Cemeteries are so old that there are not any other records of the people resting there. When these cemeteries does that person's existence! We would like to thank all of you for your contributions to the preservation of these cemeteries.The peace and serenity found in these old cemeteries is our reward! If there is a memorial we have added, that is not in our family, we will consider a transfer of the memorial to you. Please use the Edit tab,(upper right hand corner of the memorial) Please do this on every memorial that you want transferred or a correction on and please include your ID number.
Thank You, Mo & Dave

Photo of John Kirkpatrick grave
I am wondering if there is a way to get a better photo of the grave of John Kirkpatrick in Gilmer Cemetery in Jefferson County, Iowa? The photo on the memorial does not show the first name, although the dates match John Kirkpatrick. I need this for a DAR application (s), and they are sticklers about authenticity. The cemetery is located on a farm in Jefferson County. Thanks.

Hello there,

I thank you for capturing some of my family's headstones on findagrave. I'm wondering if you would be willing to transfer any of these to my care?

John W Hobson # 66791488 My paternal great grandfather.

Nancy H Hobson # 66790608 his mother, my great great grandmother.

Florence A Hobson # 66791559 John's wife, my paternal great grandmother.

I just added my grandfather to the same cemetery they all reside in, and will be adding my grandmother there at his side very soon. My parents will be transporting her ashes sometime this year from Oregon.

Thank you!

RE: Nellie H Paxston 1869-1869
Hi Mo,

Thank You for giving me permission to use your pictures.

And Thank You for looking into the other contributor for me. I've run into that before, what is proper to do ? GO ahead and use the photos with credit given to the photographer ? I found another contributor today who has passed, and I'd like to use the photo. Now what !

Sincerely, Sherry

Rebo Family
Hi! I am in need of a little help. I found your great bio on Helen Chism Rebo. It shows that she was born in 1806 and her father being Richard. But he died in 1799. If Nancy Long Chism is her mother, did she remarry and have more children? My tree shows Helen Chism married Bartholomew Rebo. Their child Margaret married Peter Clawson which resulted in a child named John A. Clawson. Either I have picked up wrong information or a different Rebo or Chism. Can you please help me sort this out?
Also, if this is your line of Rebos, do you have any information on Peter Clawson that Margaret Rebo married? The only thing I have found is he was from New York. Or do you have any more info on Bartholomew Rebo. The story you posted is so interesting.
Thank you for doing such a great job on Find a Grave.
