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 dougmechler@gmail.com. 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.
