wrong cemetery
A list of people in the wrong Highland cemetery was published by Waterloo Genealogy society, In fact it was the second posting in order to get the record corrected.
I happened to be documenting my hometown Highland Cemetery and came across the list.
I took each name individually because some of the names on the list did not belong in What Cheer Highland Cemetery. Over 100 entries thus over 100 precise corrections.
I am documenting and photographing What Cheer Highland Cemetery in coordination with the cemetery officials.
I will not add photos to the entries which were posted in the wrong cemetery for years and then dumped on contributors in the correct cemetery, expecting them to delete theirs.

I will not add photos to Shirley's entries that were in the wrong cemetery for years and then she dumped them on us.

highland cemetery
yes I made an error but started correcting as soon as Kathryn let me know but she sent me over 150 emails which I spent all day yesterday and today trying to correct -- if she would look she can see i am deleting actual duplicates but I am also xfrng memorials to individuals that have information linked on their memorials I don't know what else to do to make ms. Maxwell happy

I refuse to put any photos on Shirley's entries.
She entered many people in the wrong cemetery years ago and when it was called to her attention she dumped her entries (about 100)in the correct cemetery knowing that other contributors had already created memorials. You do what you want with the memorial that you created. I will leave the photo on yours but not hers.

RE: Pearl Height Elliott
I, too, am a family genealogist. I am 70 years old and began family research in 1956 when my dads mother passed away.

All of the Bissetts, Drumms, Heights, and Watts families in Keokuk, Mahaska, and Poweshiek Counties are part of my fammily and research.

I came across this web site a week or so ago and began posting photographs that I spent my life collecting.

I have donated early copies of my trees to the society's there in Iowa, but have since added much more.

I currently have a data base of 125,0915 family members which include both my side of the family and my wife's Evans side.

Since I knew your name was not one that I had come across and since Pearl and Gib did not have any children, I wanted to know your connection for the flowers you left on that site.
