Researcher Comments

~LeMars Memorial Cemetery, Block 7--Mary, thank you so much for your efforts with the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project. Without your work I doubt I would have been able to find the dates I was looking for - well, at least not without pulling my hair out!
Sincerely (Aug 2009),
Jennifer Powers,
Great-great granddaughter of Mary Ellen Mellor and Thomas Adamson
~Merill Hill-Side Cemetery, Block 2--Hopefully, this submitted information can be used to update your web site for the Hill-Side Cemetery.  I appreciate your efforts in collecting this information.  I live in Miami, Fl and do not get back to Iowa very often so your site is like visiting my parents who reside there. Thank You- Regards, GW, Miami, Fl (June 2011)

~LeMars Memorial Cemetery -- I came across your website just the other day and wanted to say thank you.  I have been looking for some information on the Kissells.  I have been looking for about a year.  According to your website the grave only has the first names and only the death dates of Clara and Hannah, but no birth dates for George and  Hannah. I am getting ready to send off for the death certificates for the three to see if there is any information in them; if they can even be found.  Thanks again for your hard work....I have your site bookmarked so that I can check back...

Dear Iowa Grave Stone researcher: Thank you so much for uploading my
ancestors gravestones. I would not have ever known that this grave stone
was my ancestor had it not been for you, especiallly noting that the last
name (Miller) was never carved on the stone. Again my many thanks. You
must be an Angel! ..... S. Siler Morace-Mikel, May 2009
