Bio and Links
Bio Photo Like most, my interest began with my own family tree and has now expanded in an attempt to help others just getting started or to those who cannot travel to the cemeteries themselves. I have been working on my own family lines since 1991 and have enjoyed every bit of it. For those who know, it is more than a hobby, it's a life love. Thank you to those who have helped me and I hope to pass it on and do the same for others.

RE: Griest & Steele Memorials
Hi Johnny, We must be related. My grandparents were Walter Jeremiah Griest and Mary Lydia Steele.
I'd be very interested in information sharing via private email.

Griest, Steele families
I have just started delving into family history, and just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate being able to see photos of my ancestors' graves and the information you have curated.
Thank you.

I deleted the duplicate photo of Theodore F. Wakefield. Had to Google "How TO" but it worked.
Thank you,
P.S. Cool beans on the "Alert to rudeness"!!!

Alert to Rudeness
I just saw your "Alert to Rudeness", lol great ideal. I had one person that was so bad, he found my phone number, called me up, blessed me out, asked me who gave me permission to put his family tombstone on this site. His wife emailed me several times trying to explain. I was so upset I took my picture and info off and would not do anything on this site. I am weary still.

RE: Daniel Hickey #158244627
The only documentation I have is a death certificate from Silver Bow County Montana. It only lists his name, age, death date and place of burial as Pennsylvania. The info does match up. If you think this is not enough to prove he is the same person on the memorial you created, that is totally understandable and I will continue to try to find more concrete evidence that they are the same person. Please let me know your decision on the edit. Thank you very much.
