Bio and Links
I have been working on genealogy since approx. 1994 -- after my Mother passed away, in going through her stuff, I found the names of my fathers parents (we had never known any of my fathers family). I wondered if I would be able to find them and I was successfull in finding my fathers only living sibling. I live in Des Moines, Iowa, and she lived in Oregon -- I flew out the following Thanksgiving to get acquainted with her and couldn't have been happier. This gave me the "genealogy bug" and I have been searching ever since -- have found WONDERFUL relatives who I never knew existed. Genealogy if great!!

The names I search are CLAYTON, McNEELEY, ARROWOOD, MYERS, SPENCER,just to name a few.

RE: Alta Poole
If I enter W*busch in Iowa into (free) this is the result. But you could/should have done that yourself - of course:

Find A Grave Memorial# 111740071
Regarding John I. Snitker - Find A Grave Memorial# 111740071

This is the grave of John Layton Snitker of Des Moines, Iowa. The memorial has it listed under John I. Snitker which is incorrect. The picture of the tombstone associated to this memorial clearly shows the middle initial is an L. Can this reference be corrected please, as it affects one's ability to search for grave using this database.

Thank you - sincerely, James L. Snitker

Caroline Drake Proudfit + Levi Proudfit

Thank you so much for your work! My mother passed in 1996 and I just finished posted her work a year ago. You are doing "labor of love"

My great grandmother was Nancy Ellen Drake Randol.

Caroline was/is my great grandmother's sister. I am trying to link all of her siblings' memorials and their parents and have source docs to upload showing proof of the connections.

Would/could you please transfer Caroline's Memorial (28062060) & Levi's (28062038) to me?
