Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Now I finally have the time for history and research. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers.

PLEASE do not use the automatic edit tabs for changes to memorial pages managed by me.

Instead: select the 'other' option and include what change and include a PRIMARY source of information and verification of that information. Birth, marriage, death records, or an obit are very helpful.

Census records are not a Primary source. Anything found via the internet needs verification. I do not use Ancestry. website.

If you are a family member and asking for a transfer, please state your relationship.

If you have disabled your messages and email ability for contact, it limits ability for communication regarding requests for changes. They may be politely declined.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

Transfer of Riek memorial
Please transfer the Christian and Emelie Riek Memorial #113272401 to me. I am their great-great granddaughter.
Their daughter Marie Louise Riek Lemke was my great-grandmother. I have a four-generation picture of Christian, Marie, her daughter Margaret, and her daughter, who was my mother Elaine, taken in 1925, that I would like to post on his Memorial. I was delighted to find your photograph of the Rieks' grave. I appreciate your posting it.
Thank you.

Jackson Hooker
FYI - It appears Jackson Hooker was in Iowa longer than 3 years. He was living with his parents William & Amy and his siblings in 1860. If he left, he must have returned.

1860 Federal Census taken in June, Delaware Co., Iowa - William Hooker 60 b VT, wife Amy 50 b NY, Charles 29 b PA, R. D. 27 b PA, Jackson 25 b PA, G. W. b PA 24, John 20 b PA, Hiram 15 b PA, Mary Ann 12 b PA.

RE: Jackson Hooker link request
Sorry to have bothered you. I was confused that adding his link to his parents would "remove accurate data" since no parents were attached.

I am indirectly related so it is not that important. I will work on having his other siblings connected to his parents and just leave him out.

RE: John Goben edits
Hi. Yes, I am related - John was my four-times-great-grandfather, through his son William, through William's son Pearl. John is also listed as Joseph sometimes (like in the 1870 census). I am pretty new to this, and the majority of my knowledge about the Goben family that far back has come from tracking federal censuses very carefully. John's children were Allen, Thomas, James, Mary, John W., Elizabeth, William, Joseph, and Barbera. The most complete information for John's family comes from the 1860 census; this lists his wife, Hannah, and all of his children except Thomas, who was in his own household nearby, and Barbera, who died just four hours after birth. I hope that helps!
