Oak Hill Cemetery, Belle Plaine...
Often graves are unmarked. Do you have any contact information for Oak Hill...I'd like to see if they can provide a plot number.

From several obituaries, at least some of the following are buried there...but have no memorials on find-a-grave.

Glenn Marsteller (died May 1 1950)

Bertha L. Templeman Marsteller (died Nov 7 1966 buried at Oak Hill from her obituary)

Monzetta Marsteller Franklin (died about 1975, haven't been able to locate an obituary...although her will announcement was in the 1975 Belle Plaine Union)

Cecil Franklin (died March 1986 buried at Oak Hill from his obituary)

Thomas Algeo
Is it possible for you to know what is written on the tombstone of Thomas Algeo, its a mystery as to just where Thomas was headed. Jane Wilkinson was his mother's sister. He lived in Monroe county Ohio. He died to early at 32.

thank you

Memorial Images
My name is Douglas C. Johnson (Find A Grave #47683562) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photographs of the graves of Leonard Vincent Freeman, Lester "Babe" Anderson and Gladys Marie Anderson (nee Freeman), Samuel P. Ward and Hattie Ward (nee Freeman), Susan Ward (nee Brown), James Ward, John E. Freeman and Cora E. Freeman (nee Ward) at Oak Hill Cemetery in Belle Plaine, Benton County, Iowa on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

Thank You for finding Info on Gustaf August Nemechek
Thank You for the finding Info on Gustaf August Nemechek...Find A Grave Memorial # 77374621...and separating the issue with his mother. I have now linked him to his father at Wright Cemetery and will enter his death place on my ancestry tree. Again thank you for your great work here. --Candis Lee Cattley, Lee/Green researcher--

Bruhn family memorials
Thanks so much transferring the memorials for three children (who died in 1890 from dyptheria) of Claus Peter and Mary Bruhn. I have attached them to their mother, who was buried in California, but have not been able to find where their father was buried.

I appreciate all that you do so that our loved ones are not forgotten.

Lena Schwerdtfeger
Lena Schwerdtfeger first name is "Helene" she was the daughter of Christian John Schwerdtfeger. His Findagrave number is 57960243 in Oak Hill Cemetery, Benton County Iowa. On the Web site it says G.J. Schwerdtfeger but his name was Christian. It does look like a G on the Headstone, but it is not, it is a "C". He is my GG grandfather. Christian came from Mecklenburg, Germany, Leaving from the Hamburg port on the ship "Herschel" he arrived on July 27, 1855 in New York. He was 33 years old. He lived in New York by himself working and buying land in Tama, Iowa for about a year or more. Christian sent for his wife Frederika and family in 1856. They left the same port of Hamberg on the ship "Order" and arrive in New York harbor August 21, 1856 on the ship. Frederika brought with her Louis, Herman and Helena.

The Linking numbers are;
57960243 Helene Schwerdtfeger Scheible
57960243 C J Schwerdtfeger

Sorry about the message bombs!
Well, by now you are probably wondering if I am a total nut case! I had received an email about Harry Bradshaw that I thought was from you... it coincidentally arrived at the same time I had sent the request to you about the duplicate memorial. Turns out, the email was from someone totally different. I was responding to her questions on your wall, thinking you were the same person. So sorry about that! Could you please delete all these messages. Thanks for your assistance. :-)
