Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Iowa native - born here and still living in the great state of Iowa. I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years. I have a BA in Psychology and Humans Services and not only complete research to find the names, places, and stories of families but also the patterns of behaviors that evolve in a family line. These relationships within the family are part of what defines who we are. Through researching for myself and others, I have learned about how things like alcoholism, mental health (depression, PTSD, etc.) and socioeconomic situations can change a family for generations.

I will not add details to cause of death. When I first joined find-a-grave, I searched for one of my grandmothers and the person who added the memorial had given details of how she committed suicide. This detailed information was not necessary and would have been a very hurtful reminder for my mother if she had seen it first. We are all trying to trace our own roots as well as help others find theirs as well. Please be RESPECTFUL!

We ALL have spent many hours and often what amounts to years researching our ancestors. Please remember to be kind and not rude when making requests for changes. I am willing to make transfers outside of the FAG guidelines unless it is a family member in my tree. I have spent hours photographing at cemeteries in Southwest Iowa and have added many people that I am not related to. One last thought…..when requesting a correction from me it might take a few days….I have a family and job that also require my attention. :)

Maud Jesse Coppock Bryant-FAG Memorial #93898645
Dear Iowa Girl:
I should have processed my thoughts/request further. Could you please link Maud Jesse Coppock Bryant with her parents? Her father was Jacob Coppock, Find A Grave Memorial #44250148. Her mother was Sarah Margaret Tucker Coppock, Find A Grave Memorial #44250228.
Again, thank you for your consideration of this request.

Memorial #93898691-John L.Bryant
Dear Iowa Girl:
I am working on my husband's Bryant side and would like to request that you link John Lyman Bryant with his parents. His father was Lyman Bryant, Find A Grave Memorial #48053982. His mother was Sarah Catherine Blair Bryant, Memorial #48054047. His wife was Jessie Maud Coppock, Memorial #93898645. Interesting that her headstone has the name Maud as all other records I can find indicate she went by Jessie.
Thank you so much for your consideration of this request.

Thanks for the note, and leaving flowers at Alma's memorial. I still miss Alma. Life hasn't been the same around here without her.
