In the Shiloh Cemetery could you add some more children to Mary Ellen Nikles #27110680?

They are:
Charles Sovereign #161797261
Chester Sovereign #27110588
Richard Grauerholtz #25966153
John Grauerholtz # 46585422
Harold Grauerholtz #716559

Mary Ellen was my gr-grandmother. She was married to William Sovereign before she married John Harmon Grauerholtz.

If you would like for me to take over the page I would be happy to have it.. She had two other children but so far I have not found where they are buried.

Thanks for the transfers, John! I'm not related to the Dalbeys, but I will see what I can add about the family to the memorials, and if a relative shows interest, I will transfer to them.

The other picture of the angel statue was finally removed by the person adding it. Can you try to remove the cemetery entrance picture? I would like to add a final family picture. I contacted Find-A-Grave, but they have not responded.

Thanks you,

Dear John,

Where you able to visit the memorial to see that the picture of the entrance to the cemetery entrance picture was added by you? I still cannot add some of the pictures given to me by his mother.

Thanks again,

Kimberly Ashby

Strange since it shows your name under the photo in question. I thought I would be able to 'manage' the photos since I am now managing the site but it won't let me delete existing picture. Thanks for checking. I'm not sure what to do now.

I am managing this site now and have a family picture I would like to add. I cannot remove the cemetery sign picture that you posted. Please delete it so I can add the picture his mother gave me.

Thank you,

Israel Mason & Alice Marian (Parr Kinley) Irish

FYI, I added bio information on Find a Grave Memorial # 26515365.

Alice Marian (Parr Kinley) Irish's autobiography is posted on the IAGenWeb Project website.

The Irish family traces back to John Irish who immigrated from England during the Pilgram days. Israel's mother was a Brockman. Descendants have traced the Brockman family tree back to the 1300s.

Thank you for the transfers of my great grandparents. I appreciate the work you have done.

John A. Shober & Mary McLeod Shober headstone
Find A Grave Memorials #7444327 & #7444321

In 2008, you supplied photos of my gr. grandparents headstone in Diamond Cemetery, Hale, Iowa.

Can you also supply a copy of the headstones without the typed in text? I appreciate the effort that was taken to show the inscription.

Thank you.

RE: Milo Sedlacek
I'm not sure I'm related yet, but he probably is related to a co-worker. That's why I'm working on them...we found a common surname. Thanks! Kim

I was able to visit my gg grandfather's gravesite last week while I was visiting Iowa thanks to your great directions after getting lost. It was just as you described and I was amazed to see it in the middle of a housing development. It is so good to know our veterans are still appreciated. I wanted to leave flowers but didn't know if it is allowed.

Grave for my gggrandfather

Thank your for entering my ancestor's gravesite on Findagrave. I am going to be in Iowas for a wedding the first week of April and would like to visit his gravesite if possible. Do you know if one is able to enter this private property and do you have directions on how to get there? We will be staying in Cedar Rapids. Thank you,

Robert J Dore Headstone
Mr Wilkinson,
Thank you so much for all that you do! I searched and searched Mt Olivet for this grave and could not find it! This man was my Great grt Uncle, and if you would like, I can fill in a couple of blanks for you. He was born in Abbeyfeale, Limerick, Ireland on May 18, 1879. His brother and sister-in-law, Maurice R and Mary R Dore, are also buried there. They were my grt grandparents, and I have their headstones. His wife was Agnes Hickey - Dore, also born Abbeyfeale, Limerick, Ireland, in 1877.
I don't know that you have found her marker, I cant seem to find any info on it, altho I am certain it is there too, the whole family was.
If you would like to update that page with any of this info, feel free. I noticed his dob was not on the marker.
Thank you again.
Kristine L Hahn.

John L. Erusha 1889 -1946
I just found the stained glass window for the above person and his spouse, Svoboda Erusha, is listed ON EBAY. How in the world could this have happened? Is it possible for you to take a photo of John's grave? I have to wonder if it might be a mausoleum, which would explain why there is a stained glass window? Perhaps it was removed? Thanks....I'm just awfully curious to know something about this.

Hi John,

I just wanted to tell you what a beautiful photo you took of the sign out at Mount Olivet Cemetery! The contrast of the dark clouds against the sign, makes for a very remarkable photograph. Thanks for adding it. (:

Sarah F Reynolds - #28702476
Sarah Francis Reynolds was the daughter of J W and M A Reynolds aged 15 yrs 2 ms 21 ds.

She was born 27 Aug 1859, Washington Township, Linn County, Iowa; died 18 Nov 1874, Linn County, Iowa.

Thanks for taking the time to take the photos of the tombstones in Shiloh Cemetery. I appreciate it very much as I now live in Texas and don't get back to the Cedar Rapids area too often.

Malinda J Newman-#28702274
I am looking at the Find-a-Grave memorial for Malinda J Newman. You do not have a death date for her and I see that the stone doesn't have the date either. I don't think she is buried in the Shiloh Cemetery.

In my database I have Melinda J Newman, born 2 Feb 1853 and the daughter of John Nelson Newman and Zilpha Reynolds. She was married to Hamilton D Newland and they are both buried in the Center Point Cemetery. Her name is on the tombstone with Hamilton in that cemetery.

Melinda's family are descendants of the brother of my great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas D Newman.

RE: Charles Henry Bagley
Thanks for adding that info. He is very distantly related. I'm sure someone closer related would be happier to have his memorial. Thanks for the offer though.
