Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

George Albert Corliss
Dear Sheila,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History of the 89th Division, he too served in this unit and was severely wounded on 9/19/1918.

I'm not certain where I'm headed with my project, but I want to think I'll eventually publish something. I would like to ask for permission to use your photograph of George Albert Corliss from (Find A Grave Memorial# 106026203).

With the 100th anniversary of the USA's participation in WWI, I want to acknowledge their sacrifice.

Thank you!

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

Henry Schmidt
Hello Sheila,
my name is Astrid and I live in Germany. I'm working for some time on our family history. I have long been searching for the emigrant siblings of my great-grandfather.
Do you know that your great-grandfather Henry Schmidt had other siblings, who have lived in Germany? One of them is my great-grandfather Johann Dietrich Schmidt. I can tell you a lot about the families of Schmidt and Meyer. Four brothers (Schmidt) have been in the United States and one has returned with his wife to Germany.
I have some questions for you to answer me. I would very happy if you answer me.

Many greetings

Appears they are correct on Roberta. email me at and I send you what I found.

Thomas Angelo's obit must have had errors in it which sometimes they do.

Thank you, Sheila - I did change the day of death, because it's likely the record is correct and not the stone. I was surprised that I could enlarge the document well enough to view the details. Usually uploaded docs are too small in dpi to do that. Yes, if you would remove it from the memorial I'm good with that, now that the information is saved.

What brought Rebecca's memorial to your attention? Is she related to you in some way? If so, I'm good with transferring management to you. Just let me know.

Thank you!

Hello, Sheila - I see your edit request to add a day of death as (July) 7th, but if you look at the photo of the headstone, it sure looks like the 14th. I didn't have the day on her memorial, but if you have documentation that states it's the 7th we can go with that. Let me know, k?

RE: Nobbe
It is very doubtful that William would be buried near Minnie. I am still trying to track down where he is buried.
