Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family names I am very interested in are: Anglemyer and Kraetschmann(and variants). Wilkerson(from Montana). Schuster who became Rose via his moms 2nd marriage. My Grandpa Fred had 3 sisters--they married Egger, Pueppke, and Beulen/Beuler. Anyone with last name of Maas from Germany.

Photo request not found--For those photo requests that have been requested in Greenwood/Riverside--I and other volunteers have looked very thoroughly for your ancestor. If you get a report stating there is a problem with fulfilling your request--we have looked for them and were not successful in locating a marker for them, so therefore instead of letting these requests still stand, I will be having them removed.
I am sorry for not being able to fulfill every photo request.
If you want more info. please do email me and I will do what I can to help.
That does not mean that they are not buried at Greenwood/Riverside--just that no marker was able to be found.

"Use a period after names where only the initial is known". I will be submitting many Edits for just a period. Thank you Sue

Also, if anyone has info. on the Ralph Paul Kettley family of Illinois, I would love to talk/email you.
I need some info. on Benzie Co., Michigan. What it was like 100 years ago especially. I would like more info. on Copernisle, MI also. I would also appreciate it if someone could do lookups of articles, obits., and so on for Adam J. Rose/Schuster and his wife Caroline or Carrie. Also, their kids.

Just to clarify, I am not on or any paid site like that

Just email me if I can help you.
YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE MY PHOTOS OF YOUR ANCESTOR AS YOU WISH--please credit me as the photographer.

Greenwood Non-Endowed//Lawns 25, 26 & 27
A non-endowed lawn is nothing more than a portion of the cemetery that gets no care--they don't do any type of maintance, water, mow, etc.
Pine needles fall, branches fall and so on. So, when I find out that a person is buried in any of the above I will post a photo that I just took. Please remember that Greenwood is more than 100 years old. So, the chances of us actually locating the marker for your ancestor in a non-endowed are not that great. That doesn't mean that we won't try, just don't hold your breath.

IF YOU WANT ME TO DO A TRANSFER OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBER, EMAIL ME. I will consider each request as they come in. The way I see it--these are guidelines only, not hard and fast rules. So, if you have an odd situation with your ancestor or even if it is a friend--let me know. I am not related to most of the names that I "manage". So, don't be afraid to ask for a transfer or whatever your situation involves.

Taking photos--I want to explain my thinking behind the way I take the photos.
I feel that it is a privilege that someone else is entrusting me--to take the best possible photo of their ancestor that I can. Therefore, I take a whisk broom with me and some water. I always clean up the stones before I take a photo. It does not take long and so improves the photo. Not to mention it just seems more respectful of the person that I am photographing. Sometimes, the descendant needs date/name verified. That is difficult to achieve if there is a bunch of debris on the marker. Debris like pine needles, branches and so on. It only take a minute if that long to wipe that all away.
Water-I take some of that just for any bird droppings on the stone. A bit of water on the droppings, wait just a sec., and the bird droppings are gone. You have to sweep, wipe away. But, the idea is that you don't use anything harsh to get rid of them.
If it is bird droppings mixed with tree pitch/sap--no chance of removing that.

So, if you are going to fulfill any photo requests for me--I would appreciate your doing it the way I have outlined it for when I fulfill other peoples requests.

Just in case someone wants to know someday--My source for DOB, DOD, names, marriages, military and so on it only helps me out here in Washington State.
I don't like having to pay any web site money for what actually should be free--esp. in the case of a 100 year old marriage license, death cert., and so on. So, I don't do

The above web site is ALWAYS my source. The only other source I have here is our library.
So, please don't ask me who or what my source is--I've already told you.
