Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Iowa native - born here and still living in the great state of Iowa. I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years. I have a BA in Psychology/Humans Services and not only complete research to find the names, places, and stories of families but also the patterns of behaviors that evolve in a family line. These relationships within the family are part of what defines who we are. Through researching for myself and others, I have learned about how things like alcoholism, mental health (depression, PTSD, etc.) and socioeconomic situations can change a family for generations.

We are all trying to trace our own roots as well as help others find theirs as well. Please be RESPECTFUL!

Many people seem to want to "hoard" memorials and compete for the largest number of added/managed memorials on this web site. This is not me. I do research and share information for the knowledge and preservation of all our family histories.

Please remember to be kind and not rude when making requests for changes.

RE: Martin Henry Myers
Martin (Mutt) was an uncle to my former husband, Kenneth, who was the son of Wayne, his brother. I have very fond memories of our visits with Martin & Bessie, his gardens and stories he told and of Bessie and her cooking and sense of humor. When Ken's folks moved back to Missouri, Martin & Bessie would have Sunday dinners for all of us. This included Bernie & his family, Carolyn and her family and our family. My daughter, DeAnn, has been trying to keep up the genealogy on the Myers side of the family but work takes up most of her time so I help out when I can. Thanks for adding the obit. Take care!

Nadine, myrtle, Edward and Merrill were all buried by each other. Lillian and Lawrence Falk were too. Not sure if relatives or not but passing info on. I opened the names you didn't request up.

Thanks for the note, and leaving flowers at Alma's memorial. I still miss Alma. Life hasn't been the same around here without her.

RE: Catharine Quinn

Thank you so much for getting back to me on this
request. Interesting? I wonder what happened to her? I believe Thomas Quinn, is her her husband.

Thanks, Again
Best Wishes

RE: Myers Family
Hi Iowa Girl: Thanks! So glad I found another relative in Iowa. Found one a while ago in the Waterloo area whose kids descended from another Myers brother, Henry X. Myers. Their surname spelling was originally Myers, but someone changed it to Meyers; so go figure. Thanks so much for the information on Martin's line. Some of them I had only sketchy information on, so I appreciate your findagrave memorials to them. Bruce #47425897.

RE: Myers Family
Hi Iowa Girl: Thanks so much for the information! I descend from John's brother, Jacob A. Myers (1825-1893), so we are distant cousins apparently. My great grand-aunt chronicled all the Lancaster Co. Myers years ago and I have been filling in more names and information on this line since the 1980's, with the help of a computer of course. For some reason, your branch was consistently spelled "Meyers" in her papers; would that be the case? I took the liberty of filing all the names under the more familiar "Myers" spelling, in order to avoid confusion. If there's anything further I can help you with regarding this line, please contact me. Thanks, Iowa Girl, for letting me know more about your Myers line! Bruce #47425897.
