"Here lyeth a decaying Body of Historical Evidence that should be Recorded before it crumbles into Dust or is Destroyed by the work of Vandals.
Stand still reader, and let fall a tear For the facts engraved here And then make haste, transcribe these lines, Learn while ye may the meaning of these signs, Preserve these stones, avert the crime Snatch history from the hands of time."

RE: Palmers, Mamrelund Cemetery, Stanton, Iowa I am stumped on this one. Perhaps you should just create memorials for the names on the stone and perhaps some family member will sort it all out and ask for merges, if appropriate. Sorry I can't be of more help. Linda
RE: Grahns - Stanton, Iowa Graveyard Hi Debra, It is so nice that you are photographing that cemetery, and thus confirmed that the memorials I created were in fact in the correct cemetery! I've created one for son Carl William #160607924 so you can add your photo to his memorial as well. Great work! Thanks. Linda
RE: Hauke (Detmers) Zitting Well now that is a very interesting story =D you should put his name on her memorial, just so that people looking can connect the dots. So he married her to bring her to the USA? of what I have seen in researching that sounds like a common practice back then. thank you for sharing the information Vonda
