|Bio and Links|
I am a 'farm girl' who grew up and still live in Iowa.|
I found my great grandmother's headstone on Find a Grave quite by accident and have been hooked on this site ever since.
My goals are to try to leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren by connecting them to their family. Forgive me for not yet having all burial locations identified...it takes time.
I enjoy helping others find relatives and friends. I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed.
I am not interested in amassing large numbers of memorials. I am interested in connecting family members.
I do transfer memorials if you have information to add, unless it is for my relative.
I have posted many memorials and photos from various cemeteries so others can gather data. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.
I usually try to add information and family links by researching a family. This takes time, so some memorials I've created are not done.
Please let me know if there is an error so it can be corrected. I want to have true and appropriate information.
I usually make edit requests the same day. I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials.
I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Contact me using the edit and SAC tab on any of my memorials. I do not post my email address.
- - - - Projects as of March 2014 - - - -
I took gravestone photos of the entire cemeteries at Lynwood, Antioch, Old Town and Pleasant Valley Cemeteries near Clarksville, Iowa; St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Greene, Iowa and Paton Cemetery in Paton, Iowa, plus much of Dawson Cemetery near Paton.
I added quite a few photos for McCallsburg Cemetery and will be taking photos in several Butler County cemeteries in 2014.

What a great project you're working on. I was actually very happy to see your photo because the Outtrims are distant relatives. I know another person who photoshops old signatures from probates and posts them to memorials -- looks very nice. I'm always very happy to make corrections and additions to memorials.

I was impressed with your bio and appreciate the work you are doing. I have ancestors in Butler County, Iowa, and have thought about visiting there sometime to visit the graves etc. I will let you know if I do indeed get out that way and perhaps we can meet. I live on a ranch in South Central South Dakota.

Your welcome. We retired Vet (Photographers) are always happy to be of assistance.
You may not have know that another photographer had already taken a picture of the memorial and posted it to Walter W Godwin's memorial page. There are additional photos on his memorial that you may want to check out. Have a wonderful day.

Thank you, very much, for posting the tombstone photos for Florence and her baby, Keith. I left a message with you at the email address you provided for me in your last message. Hope you got it.
Thank you again for your hard work and kind heart.
Thanks for the info on the Dewey family. I updated memorials. I am going to delete my memorial for George Dewey, since someone had made the duplicate and posted grave photo on that one instead of mine. I noticed it was transferred to you, so the dilemma would be -- since memorial transferred to you, you cannot delete it, thus we are stuck with 2 memorials for him unless I delete mine. I get sooo frustrated.... :(
So let's use the memorial number you have for George and do the family links. :)

I believe that the George Washington Mertz you are referring to is Solomon's son.
I believe that the 1860 census is incorrect showing him as being 10 years old. The 1870 census shows him as 12 years old and the 1880 census shows him as 22 years old.
Solomon married Sally Rehm 7/20/1856 in DuPage County, so Solomon and Sally would be George's parents, as shown in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census.

You are doing a great service for everyone who can not visit these graves themselves! Thank you so much! This is fun to do and be a part of!
