Bio Photo 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 pleased to have been able to honor your loved one's memory in some small way.

I use Find A Grave so much and get so much good info, I feel obligated to supply what I think are correct changes. You are much more appreciated than my meager contributions

RE: William Benton Shoemaker
Hi Heather,

Thanks for the detailed info! I applied the memorial date change from 1885 to 1884 since there's no clear agreement amongst documentation sources as to the birth year and added an explanatory note to the bio section of the memorial page for William B. Shoemaker. I haven't been able to find the Christenings record that you cited yet, but I assume it will turn up when I have more time to research it over the upcoming holidays. Also, thanks much for the memorial photos for both Mary Shoemaker (Memorial# 136163764) and William Benton Shoemaker (Memorial# 136441003). Much appreciated!

William Benton Shoemaker
Hi HC Hughes,

Regarding the birth date edit for William Benton Shoemaker (Memorial# 136441003) - Note: The birth year is unclear. Although the grave stone reads "1884", other documentary sources such as the 1900 and U.S. World War I Draft Registration Card both read 1855. Other census for 1910 U.S. and 1925 Iowa imply 1885. Do you have a source for the birth date other than the grave stone?

Do you know if his middle name could have been Ivan ?
I have a Leverl Ivan in my family tree that matches the dates with attached wife as Mary and a son William Francis Michel

Got the duplicate memorial deleted for Baby Phillips. Keep up your wonderful work in preserving family history for future generations.
Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Hello and thank you for taking the pictures of Joshua and Phebe Satterthwaite. These provide helpful information for my Jayne ancestry records, as their daughter Rebeccca married David Jayne, son of the founder of Lone Tree, Iowa, John Whitaker Jayne.
Very nice pictures! Thanks again.
