I would like to request the records of IVA M. (BOTTENS) McVay, born 1892 and died 1978 and her husbands record, LOUIS McVAY, born 1884 and died 1964.
Iva is my great aunt, and she is the sister to my grandfather, JOHN EDWARD BOTTENS.
I am trying to add other info and pictures to tie in with other family members.
My email is: bottensron@yahoo.com

Thank you very much for your consideration. Are you a family member?

Sincerely,

Ronald Bottens

Springsteen
Hi Grave Tracker,

First of all... Thank You for the work you have done gathering info and photo's from cemeteries.
I noted in your bio that you are interested in the Springsteen name. My Springsteen line is from James Springsteen b. 11 Jan 1826 in Canada E., died 26 July 1891 in Burlington, Des Moines Co., Ia., buried in Oquwaka Cemetery, Oquqwqkq, Henderson Co., Ill., married Delighty Campbell, 5 Aug 1849 in Burlington, Des Moines Co., Ia. They had 9 ch, 6 gils, 3 boys from 1851-1868. Are we related?
Was Delighty alive when James died?
Merle Payne died in 1958, is there an obit for him?
Sincerely,
Sandie

John Andrew Pierson
Hello! I am a member of the Iowa Genealogical Society, volunteering on the research team in Des Moines. We have a request for information on John Pierson and his wife Amanda who lived in Burlington in 1860 to 1890 or so. Do you have any more information about this person? Or would you be willing to visit the cemetery records for dates etc.? Thank you so much.

Sacred Heart Cemetery Burlington
I am working on a census and database for Sacred Heart Cemetery in Burlington and I have the deeds to the cemetery on loan from Joe Stevens, the administrator. I am wonder about if you have a database or spreadsheet started that I can plug into my work so that our data and the locations match?
