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!

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.

Maurer Headstones
Thanks so much for posting the headstone pics of Johann George & Esther (Zimmerman) Maurer and family in the Shawver Cemetery; George and Esther are 5th great-grandparents of mine.

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.

John Vesely
I came across a John Vesely (1864-1951) obit while I was looking for someone else. I created a memorial for him in Riverside Cemetery, it is #132870115. Just wanted to let you know in case you want to manage it. Happy July!

Helen Rector- #80969640
Thanks for having this picture put here!! I've connected some dots and found her parents and the rest of her family. She was the only child of Silas Charles and Mary Evaline Blake Rector that wasn't linked to them. I remember seeing the name Helen Rector in all my family stuff, but couldn't connect it until tonight. Mary, her mother, is George Blake's daughter, and Helen, his granddaughter! Yeah! Now, hopefully, we can get them connected as I sent in an edit. George Blake is who the Blake Cemetery in Poweshiek Co., IA is named after.

Blake Cemetery
Just out of curiosity, do you know if there is a George Blake tombstone in Blake Cemetery in Poweshiek Co., IA? I see the ones for Zachary Taylor Blake and Virginia Blake, but didn't see one for George. Didn't know if it just wasn't there or if it is unreadable. Let me know if you can shed some light on this for me. Thanks!

RE: Ernest D. Bell and wife
Hi Dawn,

Thank you. The only grandchildren of my grandmother, Ferne V. Gray Bell, are my siblings and I and one daughter who is the child of her son, Richard, who is deceased. There is a Richard Bell in Cedar Rapids, who would be great nephew (grandson of Tom Bell). I know the Wade name well, not only from Sarah Parmy Wade Bell, but because Grandma sold the farm house (and I suppose farm) to a Dean Wade when I was a child. I have paperwork from it. Before it was sold, she moved into Iowa City, into the house my parents had when I was an infant, and that is where she lived until she remarried George Canott and moved to Crawfordsville, IA. If you care to discuss more or have me send you anything, we can email personally.
