|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.|

|Elliffen||re: Afton Robertson|
Hello... I added a gravestone picture for Afton Robertson and started a memorial for wife Sarah K Robertson (Rose Hill Memorial Gardens, Marshalltown, IA). If you would like me to transfer Sarah to you, just let me know.

Gary, Thank you for your help.
|Monte Harding||Kidney family|
Gary, entry number 81835411 Mary Magdeline Shriver Kidney and entry number 81835549 William Robert Kidney are both in the wrong cemetery, they need to be moved to Old Johnsontown Brethren Cemetery/Open Arms Ministries Church, Berkeley County, WV.
I have posted photos of them and all you have to do is move them to the right cemetery.

Thank you, Gary, that's a good idea! I'll contact the photographer. Take care of yourself 😊

Archibald Asbury Hayden is my great grandfather; I am wondering whether you could transfer it to me if you are not a relative.

Robert is linked to John. Robert is not my memorial.

|Tundra Girl||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.
|Not Forgotten||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.
