Bio Photo A tintype of my great great grandmother: Frances Roadamour Porter.

I transfer in accordance with the rules of Find-a-Grave. Politeness will earn you more than petulance.

I have thirty days to fulfill potential corrections/additions, please do not email me 24 hours later asking why I have not done it yet. Also saying thank you or please is the polite thing to do, most do not like people who demand things, we were raised better than that.

Find A Grave Memorial# 98489909
Also, this memorial is for my grandfather, William Allen Peairs. Although I see how his year of death could be mistaken for 1952 based on the picture, he actually died in 1932 when my mother was 16.

What additional evidence or documentation would be required to correct this record?

Again, many thanks for your volunteer efforts!

Find A Grave Memorial# 98489318
This memorial is for my grandmother, Catherine Mary Gissing Peairs. However, my mother, Celia Ann Peairs Fay, is not listed among her children. She was the 9th and final child of William and Catherine Peairs, born January 2, 1915 and died October 23, 2008. I believe she has a grave marker in the Peairs family plot in Glendale Cemetery in Des Moines, although she is not buried there. Her body was cremated at her request.

What additional information would you need in order to add her name to the list of children?

Many thanks for establishing this memorial. This is a remarkable service to individuals seeking to find out more about their ancestors!

RE: Mendenhall graves
When I was in Iowa in June, I visited the Poweshiek County Genealogy Library.
Someone from their group read all the stones in Sugar Creek Cemetery.
I think this was done in the 1970's. They cleaned the stones, either floured them or chalked them, recorded the information and photographed the stones. They also researched the information in the court house and local newspapers.
They put together about a 3 inch three ring binder with the names, dates, photos of gravestones and other information.
I got the dates from that note book.
