Bio and Links
Bio Photo I credit my addiction to genealogy to my Aunt Lois Nance, who was a old school genealogist. Her family research was done without the aid of computers or the internet. May God rest her soul.

My goal with Find A Grave is not volume but quality. I will do my best to include photos and obituaries with my listings.

Families I am researching are; Albee, Nance, Elbert, Perkins, Hardisty, Blazek, Victor, Burgett and close friends.

Feel free to use any photos and obituaries that are listed. I'll transfer any listing under Find A Grave guidelines.

The most important thing I can do, is to be respectful to the families of the dearly departed.

If there is something on a listing that offends you, please, let me know and I will gladly remove it.

Mt Zion Cemetery photo
Hello Brad,
You do your Aunt Lois honor with your careful work. Paper and pencil did a lot of good genealogy in days gone by.
I'm needing help with some of your photos in Mt Zion Cemetery.
I found a mystery woman at: Find A Grave Memorial# 42004180
Online clicks say she was Sarah Lyons, but I can't verify that with pencil and paper.
Sorting through your photographs it looks to me as though the above memorial number is on a stone with a much larger engraving for George Miller.
Could you check the photos and tell me if Lot and Sarah Timbrell are marked on the same stone with George Miller?
Lot Timbrel had been married twice earlier and the Sarah is a mystery to family researchers.
Thank you. Naomi

RE: Oakland Cemetery
Under cemeteries of Adam County, Iowa
they show an Albert Hathaway buried in Oakland. The best of my records has him born January 8, 1884 in Adams County, Iowa. The Adams County Free Press issue of September 26, 1940 mentioned him as a victim of a homicide and his body taken to Corning for burial.

Oakland Cemetery
Dear Brad:
Is there a county contact number for Oakland Cemetery, Adams County, Iowa. There is a record for John Hathaway being buried at this cemetery. I would like to see if they have more information on this person if any?

RE: A question
I know has been awhile since we were in contact but I am hoping you may be able to help sort out some confusing facts concerning David Beckett. Since you knew him, maybe you could help me out?

Absalom Bonaparte McDonald
Thank you for posting the photo of the large grave marker for Absalom Bonaparte McDonald. One of the contributors to a family tree at mentioned he had a large, imposing grave marker. The researcher, who was his descendant said his second wife, Ann, had a small marker, which you have also photographed. When you have a chance, would you check to see if there is any grave marker for his first wife, Mariah or Marie (Hook) McDonald. Thanks for your efforts in taking the photographs of the many grave markers.
