Bio Photo Hi! my name is Karen and have been working on my family genealogy since 1975. Back than walked cemeteries,court house records and my aunts. Now much easier with the computer. My family names I'm researching are Ingle, Hubbs, Carter, Estes, Ruby, Collins, Ahn, Spink, Stewart, Jewell. I am very thankful for all the volunteers that walked cemeteries looking for my ancestors. I enjoy getting stone photos for other people and will do my best to find them. I will only transfer if the memorials are your SIBLINGS. PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AUNTS, UNCLES, 1ST COUSINS.

RE: Levy Sylvester
Theses three do not have photos on Find A Grave. says unknown, but he was on a list for Oakview--not on WPA

I have just gone through the whole list for CW veterans buried in Monroe County and there are a lot of them in Oakview. I have a virtual cemetery so it's easy to see which ones don't have the little tombstone logo. It will take me several days to get through all the rest --about 250 more. Thanks for your offer of help!

Levi/Levy Sylvester
Hi. Thanks for taking and adding the photo for this person. Records I found for him show his name as L.S. or Levi, but I see that Find a Grave has Levy. Did you notice if he also had a military headstone? He should have. Thanks, again!

RE: L.S. Sylvester
Thanks for your help, Amy. I know how hard, if not impossible, it is to read some of those old stones. Thanks for checking the cemetery records, too.

RE: John Webb Jr. We find a lot of cenotaphs for Civil War veterans when they died in the war and were buried in National Cemeteries or when it is unknown where they are buried. I suppose the families wanted a memorial near where they lived. I think there are a couple in Monroe County that I found today.

Thank you for all the work you have done getting memorial and photos on Find A Grave. Linda

Robert McCahan at Albia
The photo I wrote to you about a little bit ago belongs to Robert McCahan--not William McMichaels. I see that you have a memorial for him with the same photo. Thanks.

William McMichael at Oakview Albia Iowa
I found your photo on William McMichael's memorial but I think it is for a different person. The person in this memorial died in 1886 and the date on your photo appears to be 1861 and the age would also be off. I can't read the name very well, but it does not appear to be William--maybe Robert?? Thanks. Linda

The picture you took of our mother's headstone is better than the one we took. It was raining the day we were there. I appreciate all you do for so many of us that do not live near the cemetery where our loved ones are buried. Thanks again, Connie

My husband was shot and killed August 5, 1986. He was only 30 years old and we were only married for 6 years when he died.
Today, October 1st, 2014 was the first time I have seen his head stone. He was buried in Iowa (where we were both from; but he actually was killed in Phoenix, Arizona where we lived at the time. I moved back here and sent money to my mother-in-law (Kathleen Peterson) to purchase his head stone, I never seen it before today.
Thank you so much Karen for your work and posting all the photos. I am very grateful to you!

I believe this to be my 3rd great grandfather. Thank you for posting, if this is not a direct lineage of yours, would you consider transferring the memorial to me? If it is a direct lineage, could we talk genealogy if you are in the area? Thanks.
