Bio and Links
Bio Photo I just love walking through cemeteries photographing headstones as there are usually so many interesting ones. It's amazing how much information one can get from these headstones, especially the older ones. I believe in immortalizing what we can of these stones for the future and let others know that at one point in time, these people lived.

As Findagrave states: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree."


Please remember to ALWAYS thank the Photo Volunteer for their time in locating your family's grave and taking the photo for you. Many people are becoming very rude in not thanking those who go out of their way to help them and many requests go unfulfilled because of it. Remember we are in this together to help each other and a simple Thank You goes a long way.

Feel free to use the photos of your loved ones resting place for your genealogy research and your personal family tree. But please do NOT use it on Ancestry.com without written permission first.

I WILL NOT DO ANY EDITS FROM AN EMAIL OR FROM THE MESSAGE BOARD, IT WILL BE DELETED AND THE MEMORIAL WILL NOT BE UPDATED.

PLEASE, PLEASE SEND ALL CORRECTIONS, ADDITIONS, LINKS, ETC FROM THE EDIT BUTTON (THAT IS WHY IT IS THERE) ON THE MEMORIAL. IT WILL SAVE SO MUCH TIME IN SEARCHING FOR THE CORRECT MEMORIAL AS THE NUMBERS THAT ARE TYPED IN ON EMAILS AND IN THE MESSAGE BOARD ARE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO THE CORRECT MEMORIALS.


PLEASE NOTE: I WILL ALWAYS ADD THE FINDAGRAVE CONTRIBUTOR'S NAME AND/OR ID NUMBER FOR INFORMATION SUPPLIED TO BE ADDED TO THE BIO. DUE TO MANY INSTANCES WHERE WRONG INFORMATION AND LINK REQUESTS HAS BEEN SUPPLIED THAT WERE INCORRECT, I AM THE ONE THAT RECEIVES THE NASTY MESSAGES ON HOW I POSTED THE WRONG INFORMATION. WITH THAT SAID, PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE WHERE YOU FOUND THE INFORMATION FROM (i.e.: familysearch.org, census, IDS (Illinois Death Stillbirth index), family bible, etc) so please include the information for cross reference. Thank you.

Elsie Stross
I don't know if you did it or someone else, but thank you for adding the obituary to Elsie Stross' memorial. It has been a difficult hunt to find my Uncle Carl's previous life history. This helps it along.

RE: Dwyer Family Headstones
I sincerely appreciate your help. I realized that I should have brought some excavation equipment once I got there. Do you know how I could contact the genealogy group that recorded the headstone information?

I am also looking for the grave of Sarah Dwyer, my grandmother's twin, who was born in 1869 and died sometime in the 1950's.

Thanks again for your reply.

Francis Young photo request
Sorry if I offended you but I was trying to honor your request to not use your photos on ancestry.com.
I like to post a photo of the monument on my pages to verify names and dates. I would appreciate it if you would allow me to use your photo.
Thanks so much,
Joyce

Dwyer Family Headstones
Hello,
I would like to know if Grave Recorder recalls if the Dwyer family headstones in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Wadsworth were all located near each other. I was there on Monday, July 21 and I only saw the markers for Mary Wall, James Dwyer and Honora Dwyer. James and Honora are my great-grandparents and Mary is my great-great grandmother. If Lawrence, James and Anna were near those gravesites, their headstones are missing. I assumed that they would all be in a family plot together, but perhaps they were buried in another area. Do you have notes or do you recall if they were all together?

I have finally located this branch of my family after much searching, and I would like to know if the headstones are still there somewhere.

Also, do you know how to get interment information and church records for St. Patrick's Cemetery?

Thank you for any help you can give me.
