Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in southeast Iowa, with my paternal roots coming from northern Arkansas and northern Mississippi, and my maternal roots coming from Davis county, Iowa, Lucas county, Iowa and Schuyler county, Missouri. It fascinates me to think that possibly some of my Confederate ancestors on my father's side fought against my mother's Union ancestors during the Civil War. It has been said that genealogy is the "handmaiden" to history, and I believe it. I have been interested by history since I was a little boy, and it was only natural for me to get interested in genealogy when I became an adult. I have been researching my family tree for the past 20 years, becoming infected with the genealogy bug after I tried filling out a family tree in a Bible. After realizing that I didn't know that much about my family history, I set out on a hobby that I have been doing ever since, and enjoying every minute of it!

I try to add as much family information and relationship links as possible in the memorials I manage to help others with their family research. It is my goal to make finding the past easier for whoever comes after me. If you feel you have more information to add to my memorials, or you feel some of the information is inaccurate, contact me through the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

I enjoy walking through cemeteries looking for headstones for others when I have free time, especially since so many others have photographed headstones for me in the past. I appreciate their time and effort! I feel this site is important to help remember deceased families and individuals to keep them preserved for future generations. Feel free to contact me regarding any of the memorials I manage, since I am related to most of them in one way or another. I would love to compare information and hear from distant relatives!

RE: Lila Welshons grave photo
I have added the memorial and thanks for the link. Was hoping the photo would be a little better but the stone is under a crab apple tree and is stained. Have a great day!

RE: Danny O'Day photo
I had actually taken a picture for Mr. O'Day before, but it was shadowed on one side so I never posted it; glad to have gotten a better one for you!

Thank you for the links for Harold's parents which have now been added.
I have no relative connection so if you do and would like a transfer of his memorial please let me know.

William Albert Sapp
Thank you for the parent links. I had added them to the memorial for William, but for some reason, they are not showing up on his front memorial page. I will try again in a bit, maybe we are just seeing a temporary glitch. ~Amanda

RE: Wilcox memorial pictures
You are welcome! I also snapped a photo of Lila Welshhons stone but it is under a crab apple tree and had been badly stained so thought the photo did not look good enough to post. Next time I am up there will take some water and clean it off and get another photo!
Have a great day!

Hixson Graves
I have transferred Robert & Esther Hixson to your care. Esther was my grandfather's cousin on her Ansley side. I also kept in touch with her sister Louise Buckalew; Louise and I shared an interest in genealogy.
