Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been documenting the cemeteries in Iowa county, Iowa and helping families find their relatives. I have photographed most of the cemeteries here and I am still working on adding the photos to memorials, and/or creating ones that do not have one in hopes of their family finding them.

Please use the "edit" and "suggest a correction" feature for information that is inaccurate or incomplete. Also use these features to request transfers. I would love to transfer your relations to you as long as they are not relations of my own.

Please let me know how you are related please. Sometimes I run across additional information that I can pass along as well.

Please feel free to use any of my photos for your own personal record keeping. That's why I take the photos for you in the requests!

my computer has crashed. I have to borrow one. please have some patience to get things done. thx for your understanding ; )

God Bless!

Unknowns at Amana
You have posted a photo of the marker for Friederika Braunschweig (Find A Grave Memorial# 76084810) in Amana Cemetery. Would there perchance be a small UNKNOWN marker to either side of her? I ask because the way I understand it, Amana buried people as they died and not in family groups. Friederika was my great grandmother, and she supposedly died in childbirth on 19 Feb, 1891. The male child died as well on the same day. If so, it would be logical for them to be buried along side each other.

I am emailing you an obit, using my hotmail address. Maybe you know her. If you don't see the email very soon, check your spam folder.

RE: Ernest D. Bell and wife
If Richard is an older man from Cedar Rapids, he is of the same generation as me and is a great nephew of Ernest and Ferne. His grandfather was Tom, brother of Ernest. Tom was the oldest of the children and Ernest was the youngest, and had his children late, so there is an age difference between Richard and I. Small world.

William Chown
Hello, I was just going through my old e-mails and came across a couple years back you had been unable to fill a request in Oak Hill in Benton for William Chown as he is not listed in the cemetery. His obituary states burial in Oak Hill, so I am under the assumption that maybe he is unmarked? I wish I had more info, and it is troubling that he isn't listed in cemetery records.

Union Cemetery
Dawn: Union Cemetery, Pioneer Township, Mechanicsville, Cedar County, Iowa. On 5/28/2013 a Cemetery shot which shows up on the Union page when you open this cemetery has a photo with flags flying. This is not Union Cem at the location you have posted. Union is on a gravel road, in the country, and has no "newer" looking monuments and not anything that looks like your photo. Hoping you will remove this when you look it over.
Thank you so much

Reference: Glenwood L. Stanley III.
Dawn: The picture of the cemetery stone is not the correct one for Glenwood Stanley III. This stone belongs on Glenwood L. Stanley Jr. Could you please remove it. Too many Glenwood Stanleys!
Thanks, Dave Dearinger

Dawn - Just cleaning up & I found two duplicate memorials in Amana. As they were established earlier, you might want to delete yours. Thank you so much for contributing so many wonderful photos. Kathy

Bendorf Photo
Hello! I do believe you have the wrong gravestone picture for Emaline Bendorf memorial. Are you able to take the correct photo for Emaline Bendorf and post it to her memorial, number 75991207? Thank you.
