Bio and Links
Bio Photo Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a link to a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave. I was amazed, became hooked on this site, and have been contributing ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links.

I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I just try to add data. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries currently do not list burial or disposition details. Those people still deserve to be remembered here.

Unless one of my memorials is my relative or close friend, I do transfer memorials if you can and will add information.

Please let me know if I have an error so it can be corrected.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Feel free to contact me.

RE: McVay, McVeigh
That's fine. Just interesting that they changed the way their name was spelled. I had a family name of Hoar and the guy changed it to Oar. And my family had a name with one M, but somewhere along the way some of the members decided to add two M's. So some spell their name with one M and others with two. It never changes the fact that we are all related. :)

Victor Holzhauer
His obit is in the Joliet Herald on December 15, 1984, Section 2, page 3. I cannot access it but the Joliet Library and the Herald both have copies.

If I took a guess, I would say he is at Memorial Park Cemetery just outside of Pontiac. If cremated, his ashes may have been interred/scattered there as well. I couldn't find anything else. Sorry. Pam

RE: Mary Holzhauer
Oh, ooops! Sorry. Well, you got the idea anyway, I guess. I'll see what I can find on Victor. There have always been lots of Holzhauer's around here. Still are. I might be able to find something. I will let you know. Thanks, Pam

Peter Poisal (1818-1898)
You created the memorial page for Peter Poisal in 2012. ABT 1843 in WV Peter married Catherine Gallaher. She was born in 1821 in VA and died in 1880 in Butler Co., IA. Is she buried next to Peter? He out-lived her 18 years. Thank you. Mark Patterson

Floyd Tuttle & Betty Ann Robinson
I have been researching the Tuttle family for a numbers of years, and the fact that Betty Ann Robinson married later in life to Floyd TUTTLE, caught my eye and, oh what a wealth of information, photos, and memorabilia you have on all the extended family. The detail of biographical information is astounding and is evident of extensive research on your part. I just wanted to congratulate you on a job well done !!

RE: Kyle
Thank you for transferring Kyle's page to me. Everyone deals with the loss of their loved one in different ways. I am not offended, rather, I am very appreciative that you took the time and effort to memorialize my lil guy and you didn't even know him.

I never realized how many children there are in cemeteries until my son passed. My heart aches for any parent that has to live through this journey. My cousin is buried across the road as well.

I'm sorry for your loss at such a young age. I can't even imagine what I would do without my mother. I would be lost for sure.

Please keep doing what you do! Again, thank you for thinking of my lil guy!

RE: Kyle Hardy
I know, it breaks my heart to see other families have to go through the loss that I went through and it hits me a lot harder. My cousin lost her son probably about 5 years ago, it was all I could do to pull it together to be there for her.

I had my daughter that I still needed to be there for and take care of and try to live life without too much interruption. Knowing that my lil guy helped others by being an organ donor also helped me get through.

No, I can't imagine what he would be like or what he would be doing with his life. It's hard sometimes.

If you want to transfer the page, that is fine. If not, that is fine as well. I'm not sure there are a lot of people that would add info anyway.

RE: Kyle Hardy
Wow, 3800 pictures! That is just crazy. Must be the Sweet Adelines (sp) group. Kyle is my son, so thank you very much for making a memorial for him. He is a precious little guy for sure!

RE: Clark photos
I am indeed. I seem to be related to half the people buried in Keithsburg Greenmound Cemetery. William Clark buried in Scranton, Iowa, is my 2x great grandfather and James Tripp Clark Sr's great grandfather.

Thank you for the close up photos for their gravestones, especially with the aging from the first stones. Your efforts on F.A.G. are greatly appreciated, its a wonderful site and a great way to connect family of those who have passed.
