Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1976. This has been a fun hobby looking up my ancestors and finding out who and where they are buried. It shows me what stock I come from my heritage.

Plus this is a great source for finding others in my tree to fill in the gap of blanks in my family history.

I use this as a training place for helping others trying to find their ancestors to learn where they come from and who they may be related to.

Researching surnames on Boelling, Gardner,
Ungry, Wert, McLaughlin, Gustin, Brinkmann, Black,
Henry and others.

Been known to be a Gravestone whisperer.

I am totally confused. You have created 63370825 and 41586376 - I think one is the sister and one is the niece or something. Regardless, Solomon and Nancy have the same year and both Nancys were married to William Simpson. Don't think so. Please verify your information and correct.

Thank you.

I noticed you have John Vance's daughter's date of birth 1801 same as Solomon but on ancestry.com you have 12/5/1810. Also wouldn't her name be Nancy Vance Simpson since she was married to William Simpson?

THanks.

Hello Tom,
Thanks for recently trying to find the grave of Noah French. I do however find this totally unacceptable that a civil war vet does not have a marker or something. Do you know who I could contact at the cemetery to find out what happened to his stone?
Thanks,
Sharon

Hi Tom,
How are you? Thank you for helping me out on John's burial location. The information below is why I place him in Woodland Cemetery (Woodland Cath)

Burial:Woodland Cemetery, Des Moines,Polk County
Iowa, USA.

Has the cemetery been renamed?

Birth: Dec. 5, 1896
Des Moines
Polk County
Iowa, USA

Death: Dec. 29, 1921
Polk County
Iowa, USA

This is the information I use to place him in Woodland Cemetery.

Family says she and her son are buried in the same plot but it is does not have a stone.

*Family gave me this info so I do know they are there no matter what the office says. This has happened several times to me and I did find their actual plots. Thanks so very much for trying~~
