Elizabeth Obenour Harrold
I wanted to thank you for taking the photo of her headstone in the Oxford Cemetery. I had surveyed the Oxford, Mt. Calvary, and Grabin Cemeteries several years ago looking for her but did not find it at the time. She is my 2nd great grandmother. I would like to know if you remember what part of the cemetery her headstone was. I am very familiar with the cemeteries. Also, if there were any other Harrold headstones around her. Her husband, Daniel Harrold and son, David S Harrold are also buried there according to obituaries and death records but I did not find them either. Her daughter, Catherine Mary Harrold Mechler is my great grandmother and is buried in a marked grave in Mt. Calvary Cemetery. I am probably going to go back to the Oxford area this summer to try to find more information. You can reply to me at Thanks for the help.

You are very quick! Thanks for transferring.

I did a quick check on names in the Clear Lake Cemetery and I see that you also have my mother's sister La Verna Hollenbeck and her husband Dwayne. Would you mind transferring them to me? They had no children, so I don't think you will get any other requests for them.

Thanks again.

Find A Grave Correction: Elizabeth Harrold
Hey that's great!

I got my information regarding cemetery from the WPA Iowa Graves Survey, which gives the cemetery as "Heifner", which is apparently another name for Grabin Cemetery. I can't think how this error could occur.

Was Elizabeth's husband Daniel there also??

I'll see if I can get that memorial moved. Thanks.

Saint Peter's Burials
Dear Heather,

I was thrilled with the information you sent on many of the people buried in Saint Peter's Cemetery I made memorial pages for. Your photos of the headstones are excellent. Many of the names I recognize from my only two visits to this cemetery. Distant relatives are buried there and I fell in love with the beauty of where it was located and just had to take some photos plus write down names & dates. Thank you very much for all the work you have done in finding the parents/children of my entries. Keep up your outstanding work in preserving family history for the future generations.
