Please do not send attachments when you email Letha.  Unfortunately her service provider is unable to handle these.
I have been allowed to copy the Hann Funeral Home Records from Burlington Junction. They are NOT a lot of information but most include a date of death and place of burial. That alone will be helpful when they are in unmarked graves. Some are also buried in IA so I have those in case you need help in that corner and am trying to get them in useable order ASAP (indexing as I go.)
