Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Ottumwa, Iowa, and I have lived here all of my life. Much of my time on findagrave has been spent helping people find family members who just seemed to vanish off the face of the earth. If you are looking for a family member who was last seen in Wapello County, Iowa, and you can find nothing further on them, feel free to contact me, and I will see what I can find. Iím not promising I will be able to find them, but by using our local resources, I have been able to find the last resting places of many people.

Also, a helpful hint: If you believe that someone died between census years because a husband or wife stated that they were a widower or widow on the next census, that does not necessarily mean that was the case. I have found that years ago, many divorced people gave their marital status as widower or widow in the census records and even in their marriage records if they remarried, rather than state they were divorced. I have spent hours looking for people who allegedly died, and found that they, in fact, had remarried and still lived here or had moved away.

RE: Just a note~
It looks like a beautiful place to live. Lots of cool old historic buildings. I am impressed that your cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places.

But I'm can't help but wonder why there are 163 open photo requests there. Aren't there enough volunteers? We seem to have an abundance of volunteers here. Some of my local cemeteries I hardly ever go to because there are so many photo volunteers!

RE: Thank You!
You're so welcome!

Ottumwa, Iowa? I didn't know that was a real place. I thought it was a fictional hometown of Radar O'Reilly.

Now I'm gonna google it and read about it!

I'm glad my photos please you. If you need anything else in Inglewood, just let me know.

Best regards,

I was going through my virtual cemetery to see if there were people I didn't have pictures of. I saw that there wasn't one for William, so I asked for another. For some reason, I added the picture you sent me to his wife's memorial, but not his. I just added it. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks again for taking the picture.

Thanks for making the attempt, and for the info on the lack of gravestones.

I'll see if I can find anything next time I'm at the library about him, the other Albright in this area all had only one "l", so had wondered about him and where he came from! If they happen to have it on hard copy it won't take long to find.

Thank you so much for looking for his stone. I appreciate you letting me know that one could not be found. I have noted his memorial as such. Thanks for all the work you have done on findagrave and on your cemetery restorations.
