Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began genealogy by looking for my husband's father and grandmother. It took a long----------time. A chance obit that listed some survivors that were still living opened a door. Now I can't leave researching alone. Each day I might find something or someone new - it's like looking for gold. The amount of work the contributors to this site have done is amazing and I am so thankful for them.

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word. You just click on the "Edit" chose what you want changed, show changes, and close. We get the changes in a list and can accept them all with one click. Great tool!

Beegle, Oscar 140156340
The Mount Gilead Cemetery (note spelling of Gilead) is not located in New Madrid County, it is in Dunklin County west of Clarkton on Highway 25. You have a posting for the above person in the Mount Giliad Cemetery listed in New Madrid County which should be posted in the correct Cemetery to avoid confusion. I would ask Find a Grave to consolidate the postings but they can not correct a cross county posting. Below is a link to the correct cemetery. - Thank you for your help in resolving this matter.

RE: Baby Thomas Mendenhall
Hi girl it's good to hear from you!
I'm not sure what's going on there either.
So We'll just have to leave it at that until we get a lead.
Thanks for looking into this for me.
I've been down in Booneville & Paris area's of Logan co.,Ar. It's been real fun trying to spell all those Old Switzerland & German names and there have only been a hand full of folks doing photo's in those area's.
Take care...Linda

109961992 mary savage wyerka
memorial number above. does the cematary there in wyerka have any data on here children and who she was married to. There is William Savage there in wyreka also one of here sons and father of Roy William buried at Sta marys cematraty NB Nenb. I beleiev this Mary came form irleland with her husband patrick who died in the civil war. They resided in Greenfield Wi and bought 400 acres there.
1870 Sauk Co., Wisconsin, Town of Greenfield, page 204, line 22 (Greenfield is a township just east of Baraboo.) (Where my family came from note from tom)
Patrick age 40, a farmer, $400 property and $100 personal property. Born in Ireland.
Mary age 35, homemaker. Born in Ireland.
Children born in Wisconsin are:
Thomas age 14
James age 8
William age 5
Ellen age 3
John age 1.
All the chirldrens names are cortrect here also. james died swimming accross the mousouri river least rtying to so he was a teen ager but mabe tthere is obituary info on him of it. It surely would have made the news. Also I had a record from civil war records of a Patrick Savage death in Civil war with mary comnfirmation of relationship HUbby and wife upon it. maybe there is something in thewyreka records or Nebraska city records. Is a shame they are both in same yard moterh and son but not together. Wish they could. At acknowledged for thier existance oterh than these worn stones. Sinceraly your Thoasm A savage. son of james son of roy william son of john son of william.

Baby Thomas Mendenhall
Please review the flower note you left on memorial #53892863. You stated the funeral home records show this as Thomas b/d May 28, 1935.
Did they give another mother because the mother "Bertha M. Mendenhall" he is buried with died in 1932. Something is wrong here...maybe the part about b/d.
I've posted stone photo's so you can review them.

You sent me 12 edits for the old St. Mary's cemetery, now Cemetery Park in Ventura. Are you family? Where did the information come from? There are no longer original markers here, and I want to keep any posted information accurate and easily researched.
Please feel free to email me directly. I also am involved with a group of family/cemetery supporters here locally. There is a facebook page, we can invite you via email.
Thank you, Judi

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Cosgriffs in Mt Olivet
I want to thank you for posting information on my father, William Leo Cosgriff, and my brother, Donald Thomas Cosgriff. I did submit a correction as to Donald's years of birth and death. He was born in 1969 and died in 1970. Thanks again for showing them here, and thanks for all of the effort you have put into this site!

RE: Follett-Fraedrich
Hi, Gertrude and Walter are not on the lot. I see now that the lot sheet says "no marker for Andrew Follett". It's Block 132, lot 7. Unfortunately, the lady who gives me these great lot sheets is retiring. I hope her replacement is as helpful. Mary
