Fifth generation Iowan. I enjoy taking time to research the family relationships behind each photo that I capture, using data from public records to add and suggest links and corrections where appropriate.
If you are related to a person whose memorial I have added, please do not hesitate to request a transfer. I am happy to have been able to honor your loved one's memory in some small way.
Hanson Thank you so much for the transfers. I will get to Jesse's right away. And I am happy to report I found someone with pictures of Zeta. So when I get those I can do her memorial. Check back in a few weeks.
Wlach & Cipera Transfers Hello Heather, Thank you so much for the transfers of the Cipera's in Old St. Joe's, in Iowa City and the transfers of the Wlach Memorials in St. Peter and Paul north of Solon. I know what it is like when medical issues make havoc in your lives. I appreciate your letting me know. You have done very good work in the old cemeteries in Johnson County. A side note of interest – Joseph Wlach in Sts. Peter and Paul was an early settler in the area and helped haul the limestone from near Ivanhoe Bridge on Highway 1 to build the 1st St. Peter and Paul church which actually sat where the cemetery is. The cemetery gate posts were made out of the stone from the 1st church. EH 48102166

Leah Holloway Hi HC Hughes! I am working on linking all the Gates children together and Miss Leah 114238678 is one of them. She would be the sister to my Great Great Grandmother and there were lots of children. Would you be willing to transfer her to me? I just read in my Great Great Grandfather's diary of 1849 where he and Sarah had taken a trip by train from Williamsburg to West Branch to visit Sarah's family and one place they went was "Oll's and Leah's" they had a nice visit.
