Bio and Links
I have been researching family history since 1995. My ancestors were largely in Iowa by 1860, mostly in Davis, Wapello, Mahaska and Poweshiek counties. My wife's ancestors immigrated from Sweden and Germany in the 1880's, coming to Keokuk County, Iowa. The surnames I am researching include Morrison, Dahlstrom, Robertson, Zimmerman, Forsyth/Forsythe, McKay, Elder, Tharp, Waterhouse, Coughlan, Sidwell, Farr, Sexton, Wynne, Hollingsworth, and more.

Robert Elder
Thank you for the feedback on Robert's parents. I laugh when I see other people add parents that were born after their children and you caught me doing it, lol. I'm glad to see it and change it and will research it further when I have time.

Sincerely,
Tina

Elder Family Headstones
May I suggest that you contact the sexton or seller of headstones to see what kind of headstones are placed and ask them what you can use to clean them up. Some are for mold or moss that has grown over the period of years. This should also help keep them cleaned up for quite some time.
I have done this many times, but with first checking, then cleaning them and taking photo's.
Hope this helps you for any photo's you might want to take in the future or going back to do a retake.
It takes a little prep, time, but the love shows.

You're right! I didn't read the obit. I must have changed it when you sent it to me. Will change it.

The dates that come up on Ancestry.com is 1884 so that is the date I will stay with.

Thank you,
Libby

Hi Gary, before I change the date og the birth date on the memorial I would have to research his death certificate. You can send the obit and I'll save it till I do some research.

Thanks,

Libby
