I am a retired teacher who got bitten by the genealogy bug in retirement. Ken and I enjoy taking pictures of headstones in cemeteries which plays a small part in the preservation of family history for many people. If I submitted a photo of your loved one please contact me and I'll transfer it to you. I truly admire all the people who have taken the time to contribute to this wonderful website.
Forrest Wilson Templeman in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Muscatine. The death date says 1933...but I believe this person to have died in 1993. If you still check on things in this area...can you verify the date on this memorial?

RE: Arnold Foss Any of the memorials that I've made, you may have, as long as I am not related to them. I don't know why I have this desire to go to the cemeteries and record what is on the stones, but I sure do! But I also do not need "numbers". Glad to eave helped.
Albert Lemaster 54551142 There are two Albert Lemaster. Both married to Louise Ditch. Yours was entered first but the cemetery is incorrect. Albert Lemaster is not buried by his wife in Fruitland Cemetery, near Muscatine. There is a stone there for him beside his wife, but according to the Fairmount cemetery records he was buried in Fairmount Cemtery, Davenport, Scott Co, Iowa. If you choose you can delete yours or contact the other contributer. Even if you were to transfer to me, I could not delete it since I did not create it. Thought you would like to know. Thank you. I noticed many of your entries and appreciate your contributions.
I see that you posted a flower pendant on Margaret's page last month and I am curious if you are a family member.
I am one of the daughters of Margaret's only child, Marcella, who was only two weeks old when Margaret passed away. My mom is still alive and I'm trying to put together a collection of information on her mother's family.
She was very appreciative to learn that Freda Vogt, Margaret's sister, was buried in the same cemetery as Margaret, as she had seen both graves in 1955 when she visited Muscatine, IA, but had not remembered seeing Freda's grave until I told her that someone had graciously linked it to Margaret's grave a few months ago and that they were in the same cemetery.
Thank you for your time. I hope to hear soon if you are a family member.
