Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in the Anglemyer, Schuster/Rose, Wilkerson, Kraetschman names for myself. Tanner, Hunsley, Abbott, and Marsh for my hubby.
I would love to help you if you need some. Just email me if I can help you.
YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE MY PHOTOS OF YOUR ANCESTOR AS YOU WISH.

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.

Please, when posting a photo request--if known, please include all names-family names and so on. It makes it easier on the one doing the hunting if all info is known. Like, if you don't know the death date for sure, but think it's about 1910-say that. It will make a difference as to how soon your request is fulfilled.

Just in case someone wants to know someday--My source for DOB, DOD, names, marriages, military and so on is--digitalarchives.wa.gov--obviously 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 Ancestry.com--although I did just for a trial period of like 6 months.
I have looked at Familysearch.org--have been unable to figure out that site, how to navigate around, so not interested in a site that is not user friendly.
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.
Sue

Lorinda Hitchcock Tuttle
Thank you very much Sue. I so appreciate your effort. I may try to contact the cemetery as I am not able to find death/burial of Clement D. Tuttle husband of Lorinda Hitchcock Tuttle.
I see Lorinda is buried in grave 2 so that could mean Clement is buried in grave 1? Trying to locate graves of persons who helped with Underground Railroad in Cass County Iowa.

RE: M. Stinson
Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you. I have updated her memorial with additional information. I added an obituary to George Stinson's memorial (in a note, since I cannot edit the memorial). I also added a note with information about George's second wife Mae Elizabeth Naurath Stinson on her memorial.

RE: Lemeul William Jones
I have asked for the memorial to be transferred to me. Until that happens I can't edit the memorial.

Thank you very much for taking the nice photo of Jeannetta Seamans marker. I appreciate you telling me about "Charles Semans"... I don't know if/what relationship he would be. I will keep it in mind as I research; and also I think it is very nice you put that information in the "photo caption" also -- I am sure it will help others as they research.
Hope it wasn't too cold for you taking photos -- weather is getting "wintery" in your area now.

RE: Saying Hi & welcome
Hi Sue,

THANK YOU so much for adding those pictures for me!

At some point I need to complete my profile, but as you noticed, I'm new to this site.

I'm not sure how to leave a private message, but once I figure it out, I can send you a more detailed message.

Thanks again!
