Bryan Dennis - correct parents
As the gr-gr-granddaughter of Bryan Dennis, I am grateful for the memorial you created with picture of the headstone for Bryan (Francis Bryan in some records - although he called himself Bryan) and Agnes Jolly McConnell Dennis. There is one correction to be made, however, with regard to Bryan's parents, who were John Dennis and Mary Ann Voorhees. Among family history materials in my possession is a letter written by Bryan Dennis in which he states "My father, John Dennis, son of Francis Dennis, was born Feb. 17, 1795 in Kentucky, but what place I don't know -- my memory is that Francis D was born in W. Virginia. The family moved then into Kentucky and from there my father immigrated to Batavia, Ohio . . about 1806." John Dennis was either the brother or step-brother of James Dennis, who married Martha Fife. I also have a family portrait of Bryan and Agnes J. Dennis, their daughters, and Bryan's mother Mary Ann Voorhees his father John Dennis died abt 1836 in Batavia, Ohio, and Mary Ann moved with their children to Johnson County, Iowa in 1839.

Thomas Stanton Gardner
We respectfully quest permission to Thomas' cemetery marker photo in our online tree. Thomas is Marie's 2nd great-grandfather and the phot will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.

Solomon W.
No problem, leave it there. Certainly not uncommon to have a family stone and an individual stone, but odd to have such a large individual stone and no other individual stones for the remainder of the family.

There is always a certain amount of mystery in these oldest portions of cemeteries. Solomon has a brother buried atop the hill. His wife and children are buried in the Des Moines area.

Wrong headstone
Hi, I am inquiring about the photo you posted to Solomon W. Cripliver (38072906).

This is not his headstone. Would you be gracious enough to delete it from the memorial?

William White
What references do you have for William White buried in Greenwood Cemetery as being the son of Charles and Elizabeth (Scott)? I have researched William and his DOB and DOD do not match? The William White son of above mentioned parents married Lillian Whisler and had a daughter named Violet M White and is listed as late as 1930 in the US Census for Muscatine Co. Believe the son of Charles and Elizabeth had a middle name of Lysle.
Thanks for any info or help.

Douglas C. Johnson
Memorial Image
My name is Douglas C. Johnson (Find A Grave #47683562) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photograph of the grave of Ephraim Jacob Newton and Jessie Luna Newton (nee Culp) at Greenwood Cemetery in Muscatine, Muscatine County, Iowa on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

Jennie O'farrell Killmer
When you were photographing the headstone of Jennie did you by chance see the head stone of Frank Killmer. I was looking and there was a memorial in the same cemetery for frances and Jennie Kilmer which are the same people. But the spelling changes back and forth from Killmer to Kilmer and you have hit on the right one, and I feel that Frank will be in the same area under Killmer instead of Kilmer. Thanks Sparky. If you should happen to know would you please let me know. Of course we are talking about the Greenwood Cemetery. If you need more info please let me know. Jennie has two memorial numbers but I am going by yours # 140745975. Thanks again Sparky

Edward Haddy grave photo
Oopsie! I must have hit the wrong tab when selecting the kind of image I was placing with the memorial. I'm at work but will "re-place" the image when I get home tonight. Isn't that script beautiful? Sun down near the horizon when I took it - oh yeah, very nice and contrasty. Thanks for the hint and will make the correction soon.
