Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings, fellow Find a Graver! Thanks for your support of this site by your hard work posting, editing, adding photos AND using Find a Grave! Many members have helped me make connections and knowing I have helped someone brings a bit of joy to my heart.

Have a question about a memorial or need help finding info? Contact me using the EDIT button and click "suggest any other correction or addition" (quickest way and private) or leave a public message.

Am related to maybe 80% of the ones I've posted and may have more info. I leave flowers when I visit a memorial while doing research & try to remember to add my relationship in the notes...

Questions and/or corrections are welcome. If I've made an error...let me know, politely. If I ask the source of info, don't be offended, I want to add it to my database. (To err is human and I'm a little more human than most...)

Feel absolutely FREE to use the tombstone photos I have taken!!


Please ask before using personal/family photos that I own/have taken. I will most likely allow it and have yet to refuse a request. I only ask proper attribution is given, i.e. "posted by Cherie in OC on Find A Grave" and that it's not on a site where someone has to pay to see it. I ask for attribution in case someone would like more info.

Someone asked why I post someone had committed suicide. This subject is difficult. I lost two close family members to suicide. Many families refuse to talk about this. Talking about it BEFORE it gets to that stage is what's most important to try to help prevent it. This is also why I have no problem posting death certificates. Besides "family history" family medical history is very important.

Life is too short to be a stick in the mud. Be that little singing bird on the sunny end of the stick!

Help with Benjamin Iveson
Hi, Cherie! Thank you for the information on Benjamin Iveson. I'm still figuring out how Find a Grave. I have started working more with it.

Are you related to Benjamin? I think he is my second or third great grandfather. I was raised with so little information about my family. I know absolutely zip. To read anything about them is like a treasure. Thank you again.

RE: :-) Walter Rastall
I put the obit in Walter's memorial and found quite a bit of different articles on the son Ben and his wife. Interesting family.
Have a great day.

RE: :-) Walter Rastall
Thank you for the update. I was researching all of the local papers and library material and found articles on Ben and Anne. I did request his obituary through the library. Glad you were able to update the memorial. Make your day a great one.

Oh, yea, and you are NOT bombarding me with edits! I love them! I am glad that we can all work together to make these memorials most helpful to others while honoring those that have passed before us.

RE: Maud Elizabeth Stromvall Rodriguez
Thank you so much for the information! And yes it DOES make it so much harder when so many of them have been married so many times!
PS: My uncle (through marriage) is Eurenous Tinkey's grandson. I have been trying to put together some family history for them and you've helped me so much!
