Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born at Travis AFB in Fairfield, California. My father was born in Iowa and my mother in Texas. I've now lived in both states. Currently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I'm married with two grown sons and one granddaughter.

I'm a ten year breast cancer survivor and volunteer through the American Cancer Society as a Reach to Recovery advocate. It is my hope through education and research there will someday be a cure for all cancers. Until then, I will continue to be a volunteer, support those who have been diagnosed, and honor survivors.

In November 2010 I retired. It was my mother-in-law who peaked my interest in genealogy. I'm currently seeking information for the Bahlmanns, Malzahns, Hagedorns and Bremers from Germany and Bremer/Chickasaw Counties in Iowa; Banks, Taylor, Jones, Reynolds, Fanning, Roberson and Elliott families from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, and Hunt County Texas.

My interests are genealogy, photography, gardening, NASCAR, football (although I live in Cowboy country I'm still a die hard Viking fan), baseball, and traveling. The thing I enjoy most is spending time with my precious granddaughter. My favorite quote "Happiness is wanting what you have".

Please feel free to use any of the photos I've posted on my memorials. Contact me for any corrections or transfers.

Lynn Schneider
Lois House memorial
Thanks for the note. I've changed the cemetery accordingly. There are so many St. John cemeteries in Bremer County that it's easy to get the wrong one.

P.S. Since I have now added the obit, could you remove the obit photo link on memorial #76729049, thanks!

Robert McNabb obit
I just noticed the link to the obituary you posted as a photo for memorial #76729049. I have copied and pasted obit as his bio, thanks so much for that. I am happy to add the obit, and next time you can send obits to me as an Edit so that I am sure to see it. Thanks!

Garnet Marty Grave
You just posted Garnet Marty's name on the Lindenwood Cemetary, Geneva, Iowa. Garnet is my grandmother's sister and I have been looking for her grave and headstone. I went to Lindenwood today but was unable to find it, only finding her husband's grave (Ray Marty). Can you please send me the plot number or location of Garnet Marty's headstone. My email is

Edward Hurley
Hi Linda,
Thanks for the edit for Edward Hurley regarding his b-d locations. I appreciate that you posted your source (his obituary) on the memorial, but I have had to decline your edit as the death location was incorrect according to the obituary. I have also added the obituary in the bio section of the memorial and have given you credit. Would you please remove the Obituary from the picture section of the memorial as it has now been posted on the memorial. Please know that in the future if you run across an obituary I will be more than happy to add it to any of my memorials. You can send it through the edit tab at the top of the memorial by clicking on "Suggest any other correction or addition" I treasure other members who so generously spend their time and energy providing information that will complete my memorials and I love receiving obituaries!

Hello....I found Sophie Bergmann's stone which was very weather worn and on the other side is more engraving.Would Caroline 1869-1877 happen to on that same stone? If so,that side is totally unreadable.I know numbers and letters are there,I just couldn't make out neither.Tami

Can you give me the full names of the parents? They don't seem to match the info I have.

Harlow family in Kentucky
I noticed on some memorial pages in the Glasgow Cemetery that you have notes of your relationship. I just wanted to tell you that I posted photos today for the following people:
Riley Woodson Williams & Virginia Harlow Williams, Frank Taylor Harlow & Gladys V Perkins Harlow, Valiera Harlow Bowles, Charles Taylor "Charlie" Harlow & Flarra Lee Taylor Harlow
The above link is for Frank Taylor Harlow (your second cousin three times removed). There was a photo request for him but found out that there was already a photo that seems to be from the memorial page of his wife. I added my photos and included is a group photo on some of the memorial pages to show how everyone is near each other :)
