If I took a photo you'd like for your own personal use, I would be honored if you displayed it. Please credit me with my name and FindaGrave # shown at the top of this page.|
If you need a photo from this area, I'll do my best to get it for you during good weather.
Six generations of my family are at rest at Waterman Cemetery, O'Brien County, Iowa. I visit them often as they're only a mile away.
I am currently working on photographing cemeteries local to me in O'Brien, Buena Vista, Cherokee and Clay Counties, Iowa. I build on the work of others who have worked or who are currently working these cemeteries. It really is a group project. My husband joins me when he's able to and he's really good at deciphering those old worn stones that are half buried. And he's not afraid of snakes. And he's good company.
Sometimes my photos are great. Sometimes they're good. Sometimes they're not. If I post a photo to your memorial that disturbs you, please let me know and I will remove it until such time that I can get back to it.
We use the FindaGrave mobile app now. It's expensive to do so on this scale, but it saves me lots of computer desk hours. We like it a lot.
I'd like to thank everyone who sends edits. I spend 90% or more of my findagrave time in the cemeteries, so your input is valuable to me.

|Mary Ann Johns||Transfer Request|
Hi Jane, Could you please transfer my grandparent's memorials to me? They are Henry Friedrichsen 149510702 and Caroline Meyer Friedrichsen 149510618 who are buried at Lone Tree Cemetery in Everly. I really appreciate all the work you and your husband do to create the memorials for our loved ones. I am doing the same for my husband's family members, and I know that it's a big job. Blessings, Mary Ann (Friedrichsen) Johns 47007304
Jane, Your memorial for Eliza D. Vilette Windelt #176326646, is a duplicate for Eliza Vilette Duncan Windett # 7924619 with a photo. Her last name is misspelled on Mt. View's records.

You have a photo request for Anthony. He is not buried in Riverview though there is a marker. He is buried in St Rose of Lima, Avco. MN. See #146502945. I have submitted edits to add information to the Find A Grave sited for both Anthony and Katherine. Do you still want a picture. I added a picture to Katherine's site.
