Bio and Links
All edits made to the EDIT tab will be looked at and verified as soon as I get a chance to look at them. Same thing with emails. Thank your for your patience!

Please use the edit tab to put in information, corrections, links, etc., by going to the person's memorial profile.

Please use email if you have questions regarding my memorials or want to know if I have more information. Please do not use the public message board here for this purpose.

Please always be sure to give credit where it's due. You may use my pictures for personal use only, with credit given to me: "Photo Courtesy: Dorothy Findagrave #47601262". My photos should not be used for publication in any way or form, without permission or knowledge from me. It's been my pleasure to take photos and share them. I also contribute info when I can and I also create memorials along the way.

I trim my messages occasionally to keep it under control and keep those that I need to do deal with sometime.

A BIG thank you to ALL memorial creators, photographers, and info contributors who take the time and effort to make this project a huge success. It's really the collaborative effort that we all work together to make this Findagrave possible.

I've always had passion in genealogy. Virtually all my roots started in New England 400 years ago, heavily concentrated in CT and MA. It has been a fascinating journey discovering and learning so much more about my family, their migrations westward, and local history along the way. I have found that Findagrave has been an extremely valuable tool, a great asset in my research.
Some links you might be interested in:
FACEBOOK - two genealogy groups:
1) PHELPS Genealogy in America - all Phelps branches welcome
2) RILEY Genealogy in America - all branches welcome
3) is the best source for DNA testing and also has the largest and well-established database. The bonus is they keep the testee's sample for 25 yrs for future tests. I especially urge those who have roots in Colonial New England have their living MALE relatives who carry the surname Phelps, Riley, Reed, Howe, Mason, Avery, Trowbridge, Eaton, Jackson, Kellogg, Ketchum, Olmsted, Stebbins, Bell, Knott, Douglass, Calkins/Caulkins, Carpenter, and so many more - to test their yDNA (FF, i.e. autosomal test called Family Finder is also another great tool, offered through FTDNA). We need your help to establish and confirm the surname branches.

I am Everett Joseph Riley's great grandson through his daughter Margaret Louise (Riley) Kalamaros. Thanks for this! I have a good genealogy from the "history of Fountain County Indiana" but this has additional information. Well done!

Rileys in Mendon Michigan
Dorthy-I am related to many Rileys who lived in Mendon Michigan-great grandfather is memorial #7857721 for example. Do you think any relationship between Joseph Edward Riley (memorial #21985969) and my Rileys all buried in St. Edwards Cemetery in Mendon Mi and the Rileys buried in the Mendon Mi Township Cemetery?

RE: Mary St John
You’re welcome! Fostoria is in three different counties: Wood, Seneca and Hancock. The section of Fostoria that they may have been living in was the Seneca County part of Fostoria but the cemetery is in the Hancock County section of Fostoria. Hope this helps!

Robert Bell
It looks like there could be (2) memorials for Robert Bell. Your #107426810 and one in the Rome Presbyterian Church Revolutionary War Cemetery #37726635. #107426810 already has a photo for him. Maybe you should contact the other owner. Donna 47988009

Luella Casterline Kienbaum
Hi Dorthy!
Are you a related in any way to Luella? I have been given more Casterline photos (I have many) and some are not marked but another 2 and 3 rd cousin thinks some of these are Luella's daughters
Marjorie and Bernice. I'd sure like to confirm them and put them in the right Casterline family hands.

RE: Della, Harry and Robert Wright in Saint Marys cemetery
I'll let my son-in-law know what you said. You're welcome. I'm just glad it could get done before it got even worse. I have found in the real old obits that the one south of Carsonville was called the new St. Mary's cemetery and the one east of Carsonville was called the old St Mary cemetery. It still may be a problem since you have to search with no "S" on Mary to get that one up. If it's searched with the "S" only 2 in Sanilac county show up and the one with no "S" doesn't. People that don't know that will still have a hard time. I'm not sure how to fix that!
