RE: Charles Fraser
I have been told that if a person is a vet they can get a free tombstone from the Last Post Fund.

RE: Oak Ridge Cemetery
You're Welcome....I like to take the view of the Family Plots when they are all together like that as it just makes you feel better to know that they are there in one place ~~~~ There are a lot of Family Plots in that cem. like that & they are surrounded by the boundary stones & etc.. It is something to see as most of that old, old cem. is on hillside ground & that took a lot of work to get those arranged that way. It was started in 1811. The current city cem. was then started in 1892. Oakridge is @ the end of N. 6th St. & South Lawn is near the end of S. 6th St. & it is all on FLAT land.

Didn't know i could get messages on here! lol.
This side of the family has been such a mystery for so long. Might you have any family photos. I have done tons of research and have found TONS of info, plus my DNA is in Ancestry. Please feel free to view my tree

Robert Beaty in Keokuk National
Robert Beaty was a resident of Dutch Creek Twp., in Washington Co. Iowa in 1860, where he was living in 1862 when he enlisted in the Army.

Robert died in Keokuk Iowa but I believe he may be buried in the Grace Hill cemetery in Washington County IA. Check the Find A Grave listing #79686174, this may be the person your looking for.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs web site has no record of Robert Beaty being buried in the Keokuk National cemetery.

Shawn, That is going back further than I do. At the Beaty line, I stopped going any further than Uncle Howard and Aunt Emmie. Aunt Emmie is the line I am following back. Uncle Howard, I come forward on.
Thanks for asking though.

Who is John L Wheeler?
Sorry, Shawn, I forgot to ask this question. The lot on which Russel and Malinda are buried is shown in Greenwood records as being owned by John L Wheeler. I haven't found him yet. Do you know his relationship to the family? Thanks!

RE: David and Sarah
Ok, Shawn. I've changed the memorial for Infant to Mertie, and put some explanation in her bio section. I've also sent her along to you - figured you might as well have the whole family! I also posted the marker photo for "Mama" to Sarah's memorial, with an explanation in the caption - not that I really think anybody ever reads the caption. lol I will get a photo of the west side of Sarah's marker asap. I'll also get you the edits for Fred, who is buried with Carrie, according to cemetery records - there's no marker.

Thanks for all your help!!

Take care.

David and Sarah
I was also reading my database incorrectly - it appears that Sarah is buried on the lot with Davids parents, but David and Rose are buried on a different lot. I thought I had things arranged by lot, but instead it was by name. Sorry about my confusion. The burial locations I sent you for David and Rose are correct, though.
