For changes to any memorial I manage, please use the Suggest A Correction "SAC" feature on the memorial under the Edit tab on the top right hand side of each memorial. Messages for changes left here may not be made.

Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.

My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 10 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors had kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's (my Stones/Nowels and his Howards/MacDonalds). Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.

RE: Grace
Yes, I sometimes think this system has a mind of its own.
I deleted one of the messages.

RE: Grace Dukeman Stober
Thanks ever so much. It takes a village, right? I love doing this. I hope people will benefit from this site for years to come.

I went ahead and added Grace's memorial with the info that I had, knowing that I would be going back soon to get a better photo. I also could have had the staff look it up by the crypt number. They are so nice there.

If you aren't' busy on Sunday, they are having their 2nd Annual Dia de Los Muertos. In 2012 they just had a small reception area on the front lawn for visitors, then last year it was a full-blown event. I am not Mexican but I went last year and it was really fun. They have dancers, booths, food trucks, etc. There are photos on their website under Gallery - Events. I think it starts at 11:00 a.m.

Take care,

RE: Grace Dukeman Stober
Thank you! I appreciate your help. I will be there again this weekend and I'm bringing a spotlight to make it easier to read. I don't know if you've ever been there, but the lighting is very poor and the name plaques are very tarnished.

How did you manage to stumble upon this entry so soon after I created it? Are you looking for Dukemans? There are quite a few in the crypts surrounding Grace.

Best regards,

Wilson Parker Burns
Hi, some time ago you told me that you are distantly related to Wilson Burns. Well, I have been talking to a niece of his who remembers him as Uncle Buzz so I was wondering just how you are related and if you know any the the Burns descendants in Colorado Springs. If you chose, you can write me back at

RE: Ella Cariens Obit
I was given the memorial for Ted and have updated Ella's memorial. As for other surviving relations, I would say just don't put them in the obituary since your not sure.

Ralph in Cedar Hill
Thank you! I got the 2 Ralph only memorials deleted. I appreciate you letting me know of my oversight. I got called away as I was entering the data, 3 times, and inadvertently hit enter as soon as I typed in Ralph's name.

I am not related to him. Are you? would you like to maintain his memorial?
Thanks again, Debbie

RE: Ella Cariens Obit
Not sure about any living relatives. If you aren't sure, I would delete the living ones. I usually send the obituary and the person receiving knows which persons to delete.
