Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a newcomer to, I have found it very interesting and what a great way to remember loved ones. Look forward to memorializing as many of my relatives as I can.

It's kinda sad to walk through the cemeteries and see so many headstones with little or no inscription left, or the headstones have fallen over, are broken or completely gone. We need to record as much information as possible before it's gone forever.

I don't have a problem with you using any of the photos I take and post to your memorials for your other family history projects, just ask. If your going to use them for profit, then there is a problem.

It's amazing how a few people say that it's not about the number game when asked to have your relatives transfered to you and they refuse. If it's not so, then why don't they honor your request? I understood it's about helping others with their family history, but apparently that's no so !!!

When entering memorials, please check for correct dates and spelling of names to avoid creating duplicates...

Don't think of them as gone away
their journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one

Just think of them as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years

Think of how they must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of them as living
in the hearts of those they touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and they were loved so much !!!!

Children of Henry S Klein
Leo, we have never met but I am Henry S. Klien's granddaughter Ann. My mother is Rose. I need to ask you to make a correction of my mother's name as you have it listed as RoseMary. This is not correct. Her first name is Rose middle name is Mary not all as one. Thank you very much in advance for making the change.

RE: offerman
I hate to push the envelope but was wondering if you are from around Ryan and I went to school with Cletus. I think that there was a ralph and they also had a girl in the family whom I cannot remember at this time.

Another story that came to my mind was one of the older boys who was at Pearl Harbor in the Navy on December 7th, 1941 and I believe he was a welder or something like that. I seem to remember that he was trying to cut a hole in the bottom of he USS Oklahoma and was trying to rescue some of sailors on board as she had capsized and trapped a lot of men on it.

Do you have any idea of the count of the pictures that you have taken in Mount Calvary?

Thanks for replying and have a great day.....

1. do you have a plat of the mount calvary cemetery near Ryan.

2. were you able to get a picture of all of the graves in Mount Calvary?

3. I used to know a family of Offerman's who lived west of Ryan. Are you any relation to this family?

Permission to use your photos?
I see you've posted a photo for Lucy Chamberlin Rosa and her family. I also have much more family in Iowa. I'd like to add your photos to my online family tree, with your permission. Of course I'll credit you and findagrave.

Thank you for your consideration ~Lisa

Find a grave requests
Thanks for responding to all those photo requests of mine. They will go a long way towards my goal of getting photos of graves of all my relatives, whether related to us by marriage or direct ancesters of mine. I still have a long way to go though. There are some that i still have not found out anything about like what cemetery they are buried in or i cannot find any gravestones for them. Thanks again.
