I love Find-a-Grave!

My primary focus has been to photograph all of the graves in Meade County (that haven't already been done). I work very hard to make sure these photos are of good quality and that you can easily read what is etched on the stone. I am also trying to photograph the stones of my ancestors and relatives. I never go to a cemetery and photograph just one stone--I try to take at least 20 so we can get as many stones on Find-a-Grave as possible!

I'm happy to transfer memorials and make corrections and additions to the memorials. I also have no problem with you using my photos.

Cornelius Friesen
Hello! I am a descendent of Cornelius Friesen, but he is as far back as I've traced that side of my family. How did you find out his parents, Jacob and Aganetha? Are they also buried in Meade?

RE: Earl Steffen Memorial
Thanks. I'm just figuring this out. After sending another request today I then read the how-to's of the site. Sorry about that.

RE: Benjamin McPheter
Thanks for your reply. I know of Janette Friesen; she helped me out a couple of years ago. She's terrific; awesome with research. Thanks again. I may contact Janette.
All the best!

Benjamin McPheter
Hi and thanks for all of your photos and postings. I noticed that you posted a photo of the grave of Benjamin McPheter along with his obituary. Are you a relative? I am his great- great granddaughter. Would love to connect if we are related. Would like to see a photo of him. Thanks again and all the best, Lori Reid

I have a request that concerns two different memorials in Graceland Cemetery. I suspect that one is a duplicate of the other, but it's impossible to know which is correct without a little research.

There is a memorial for Maybelle Hazell ( b. 1926, d. 1928.

There is also a memorial for Maybelle Burnett ( b. 1926, d. 1928.

I believe a (or the) "Maybelle" marker appears near a Burnett marker and the Hazell markers. Are there one or two Maybelles born and dying in the same years buried in this cemetery?

There is a spreadsheet for Graceland Cemetery at that lists both Maybelles with different parents. Maybe there are two!

Your initials make it look like you might represent the Meade County Genealogical Society, so this mystery shouldn't be too hard to figure out if you are a genealogist. Will you help resolve this? Maybe the cemetery directory shows different burial locations and it can rule out the posted marker photo for one of them.

Let me know if I should remove mine.
