Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures since I was a child. I started out using my Mom's old box camera. I used her old Brownie camera for awhile too. In 1990, I bought a Pentax K 1000 then when my grandson graduated high school, I bought a digital camera. I still have the Pentax & get it out once in awhile to take pictures. It's a good camera & I can do a few things with it that I haven't mastered with the digital.

I love taking pictures (got that from my Dad). In recent years, my hands are not as steady so I don't take as many pictures as I used to. I tell people that's why I take photos of headstones - they don't move around, you don't have to pose them, etc. LOL! Flowers are a good subject too!

Anyway, retirement & taking pictures are a good match! I also do genealogy, paint-by-numbers, volunteer at my church - I keep busy which is good. Have a good one!

RE: John S.Sinky

The information on the parent's name is not correct. John Sinskey had changed his name to Sinskey when he came to the US. His father's name was Scieszinski or a derivative of Scieszinski. Not certain if or how much the Scieszinski name was altered by his brother Anistasia when he emigrated to the US. It appears that the father's name in the record was recorded incorrectly.

RE: Memorial # 8154306 Andrew Goudy
Thanks for catching this. It is a typo on my part because my records show she was born 16 Aug 1847 in Ottumwa. I'll make the change. Thanks again!!! Jack (Dimmitt) McLaughlin

Hi Mary,

I believe the reference on - "John's parents are John Sinskey Sr. & Mary Thomas Sinskey, both from Germany" - is for a different John Sinskey than memorial#97402083.

EUGENE LANGGIN III~~~Can you help with this??
My name is Stacy Kay Langgin. My father is Harold (Gene) Eugene Langgin III. He lives in Ottumwa, IA. I have been trying to find him for a couple of years now. I have contacted all the family members on Facebook. No one can seem to locate him.

Do you have an suggestions or any help you can offer me? I know he is on social security disability and lives with an unknown woman with medical issues.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Elizabeth Spurgeon
Thank you so very, very much for the excellent photo of Elizabeth (Betty) Spurgeon's headstone at Ottumwa Cemetery.
Your time and effort are greatly appreciated!
Would it be possible to add this photo to Betty's husband; Jesse Spurgeon's Memorial # 98472760 as well? They are buried side by side (I don't want to violate any copy right laws or take credit for your work, that is why I am asking if you would post it.) Again, MANY Thanks!!!
Kindest regards,

RE: Lowenberg
Just wanted to say thank you for what you found. They were all linked to the wrong people ..except for Charlotte. She was linked to the correct Edward as his Mother. And the other Edward actually Edwin C...I sent corrections to Sara, and felt bad as I screwed up the numbers myself in my message to her and sent this long message twice..But I just wanted to say thanks again.
