What I Am Currently Working On
22 Feb 2017 - What ?
Lots of trips lined up for 2017 -- Appanoose County, Iowa is currently my main 'stomping grounds' with the White Cemetery gravestone repair being at the top of the list.
Oak Grove will be one of several visits (of course), and I will visit several other cemeteries in and around Harrison County, Iowa.
Other places I hope to visit are west-central Illinois, Kansas, southern Missouri, eastern Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Some of these were scheduled for last year, but I didn't make the trip. Maybe this year? Trip to Massachusetts? Some of my ancestors graves reside in Massachusetts. They date to the 1600's, so I just have to see those old gravestones...hopefully I will get to visit (at least) a few of these places.
Oak Grove and Rose Hill -- I have been slow to get these done because I am always going off on a tangent--doing photos for other cemeteries. I made 163 cemetery trips last year, and have visited many places and taken thousands of photos. I will process a few photos for one cemetery, and then jump over to a different cemetery and do some of those. As a result, no one cemetery ever gets finished in a timely manner. Someday I will get Oak Grove and Rose Hill finished, but it will be a slow ongoing process.
Oak Grove Cemetery at Missouri Valley, Harrison County, Iowa
17 Feb 2017 - During the past few years I have accumulated a lot of replacement photos for the Oak Grove Cemetery. I will continue working on processing those photos during 2017. Hopefully some of these photos will be better than the ones I have uploaded to FindaGrave, and will make a better visual presentation of some of the stones at Oak Grove.
I have visited Oak Grove 93 times, and have spent a total of 208+ hours in this cemetery.
Oak Grove Cemetery totals:
1078 – memorials I've created
1623 – total for Oak Grove
There are still 83 FindaGrave memorials with no photo. And there are 6 outstanding photo requests.
Rose Hill Memorial Gardens at Missouri Valley, Harrison County, Iowa
17 Feb 2017 - As of this date I continue to work on the photos I took back in October 2016.
I have visited Rose Hill 33 times, and have spent a total of 67+ hours in this cemetery.
Rose Hill Memorial Gardens totals:
1996 – memorials I've created
3901 – total for Rose Hill
There are still 884 FindaGrave memorials with no photo.

|Durbin & Keaton Families||RE: Louvina Webb|
I do in fact have more that I would like to manage if possible; however, with that said please do not transfer any over to me that you would like to keep, I will understand. Can I send a list or do I go individually to each memorial and request it?
|Durbin & Keaton Families||RE: Sallie Stevens Quesenberry|
Thank you so much that would wonderful. Hope you have a GREAT visit.
|Betty Gregg Cupp||RE: Richard Gregg|
We were both blessed with a wonderful Aunt and Uncle. Uncle Dick was my father's brother. I will mention you to my cousins, their children, of your kindness
|Scott Hensley||RE: Darrell Collett|
Thanks very much for your offer.No need to transfer.Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
|Betty Gregg Cupp||Richard H Gregg|
Hi Ron! I have noticed you have left flowers for your Uncle Dick on Find A Grave Memorial# 5830452. He is my Uncle Dick too. What's our connection?
|Melissa OBrian||RE: Richmond - Pleasant Hill|
Yes I would like to manage our Richmond memorials.
|Jo Porter||RE: Harvey Manning|
It's been awhile since I walked the Miller Cemetery and I don't recall this stone. It might be a memorial stone.
Since I don't live in the area, it isn't practical for me to manage any of the Manning graves. After posting obits, I won't have any more to offer.
|Bill Arrick||RE: Morvee - McCrickard|
Hi, Ron. Thank you. There is no hurry. I've talked with MrsB and sharing some information that I have from my work on Ancestry plus some answers back from some family members. I make edits when I find time and am always happy to answer where I get my info from if necessary. Thank you to both of you for all you have done.
|Bill Arrick||RE: McCrickard memorials|
If you want to transfer them over to me, that is fine. I don't exactly know what I am supposed to do with them when that happens.
You do quite a bit of work in the Missouri Valley area. I thank you for what you have been doing as I am working on my family trees on Ancestry and much of my family is still living in that area. I appreciate it greatly.
I just left a message for a MrsB after making an edit on a Morvee grave that she manages. I notice that you also manage David Morvee (1845-1899). He would be my great great grandfather. I am looking for another David Morvee that would have been born in 1899 and died the same year, probably an infant grave. He would be a grandson to this gentleman and a sibling to a Ruth M Morvee that is managed by MrsB. I've never had the opportunity to look at the cemetery book for Rose Hill and wondered if you have.
As I am doing my genealogical work I am also trying to compare notes on Find A Grave to connect family lines. I again want to thank you for the work that you and many others are doing as it is aiding me in my research but it also gives me the opportunity to connect some of the families together for other researchers. I don't get on there very often, but try to make a connection when I can.
