Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Iowa 'farm girl'. I still live in Iowa, just not on the farm!

Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave, and have been hooked on this site ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy on Find a Grave for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links, not to amass large numbers of memorials. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not yet having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries do not list burial or disposition details.

I do transfer memorials if you will add information, unless it is for my relative.

Please let me know if there is an error so it can be corrected. I want to have true and appropriate information.

I try to make edit requests In a timely manner.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Feel free to contact me.

Within the exception of recent burials, I have taken gravestone photos of these entire cemeteries. Some stones are photographed, but are not readable, so may not be matched with a memorial. All have been posted for:
Paton Cemetery - Paton, Iowa
Dawson Cemetery near Paton, Iowa
Antioch - Clarksville, Iowa
Lynwood - Clarksville, Iowa
Old Town - Clarksville, Iowa
Pleasant Valley - Clarksville, Iowa
Butler Center - Butler County, Iowa
St. Mary's Catholic - Greene, Iowa

I added many photos for McCallsburg Cemetery and Rose Hill Cemetery in Greene, Iowa. I will be taking more photos when possible.

My wonderful Jiffy has crossed the "Rainbow Bridge". I would love it if you stopped by her memorial. Thanks so much! 😊

RE: Lorada Jane Powell
You are most welcome. I did notice a typo in her obituary that is posted to her memorial (my typo?). Her death year was 1921, not 1938.

RE: Emily Dailey
Emily Dailey is a very distant relative, and I'm finding it difficult to locate my record. Could you give me her memorial number please.

Linda B Simpson
You have an entry in Greenwood Cemetery in Nashua for Linda B Simpson. The date of death shows 1931, but according to the Greenwood Directory it should be 1954. I know she was alive in 1941 per a newspaper clipping re a family reunion. Her husband, David, did die in 1931. Do you, by chance, have photos?

RE: My relatives
Thank you, Marilyn, for all of your nice words. You are too kind. I sincerely hope you enjoy the remainder of your trip and make it back home safely. There's no place like home (so I've heard). lol

RE: My relatives
I'm glad you enjoyed your trip back East. Pennsylvania is a large state and I don't know much about it myself though I live here. lol I'm a big fan of southeastern VA where my mom grew up. It is beautiful there in the mountains. I also enjoy NC a lot. Have a safe trip and enjoy yourself. Btw, what part of VA are you in now?
