Bio and Links
I manage several findagrave sites; relatives in various states, including Wisconsin and Iowa. I think it is important to have information available on relatives that have passed on for the generations that follow us.

photo request for Ocean View
Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Diginity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

RE: Henry Rawson
Thanks for the word. Did you contact James?
He is a good friend, I'll mention it the next time I see him and see if he could, or would, change the stone. He probably got dates from cemetery records.

I fulfilled your photo request. As you can see, there are two photos, one close up, and one showing the entire marker. There are several names:
Harriet West
Lulu West
John West
Josiah West
John Rawson

Hope that helps with your research!

Zion Cemetery
Hello Tim,

Zion Cemetery does not have its own cemetery. The "community cemetery" is named Valley View, 5194-500th St, Browns Valley, MN 56219. I do not know the name of the actuary there.
Zion Lutheran Church is still an operating functioning church. Once can find records from the church there.
P.S. I have several relatives buried there also.It is really a quite large cemetery, maybe like 5 acres.

Frances L. Vestal
Frances L. Vestal was my father-in-law's cousin.
She was married to Harvey P. McKee and lived on the southside of Des Moines. When her father passed away in 1967, she was listed on the death information and still lived on Geil Street in the Fort Des Moines area of the southside of Des Moines.
This is all I know about her. I never met her or her father, Charles Ralph Vestal.

RE: Rawson's
The Rawsons that I connected to in my ancestry tree are all pretty distant. The Johnson's you found are probably not connected to mine.

Have a good new year

James Rawson
Hi Tim, was at the courthouse today and found a Burial Permit for James Rawson and he is buried in Holmes Township, Sheridan County, North Dakota. You have him in the wrong Cemetery. he should be in this one: Emanuel Lutheran Cemetery:
And who ever started this Cemetery has it in McLean County which is wrong, I have contacted FindaGrave to try and make it right..
