Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am working on geneology for my husband in the New Lisbon, Wi area with his relatives Mead ,Northcotts, and Olsons. Its been a lot of fun .

My brother has done extensive research into our family background. Our lines include Pierce, Bond, Ramey, Rolstons, Vaubels... So of course I bounce back and forth between my side and my husbands.

My interest in the cemeteries became more important, following the death of our youngst son Kris at the age of 35. He is buried in one of the little country cemetaries in our township. I have even joined our Town of Fountain Cemetery Board and am now Chairman. I like trying to make the cemeteries more accessible and attractive, for all.

And so I decided I would work with that one and other small country cemeteries in our local area. I think this is a good website as our loved ones and others should not be forgotten. One little girl was buried in our local cemetary without even a stone to mark her passing. I couldnt get that out of my mind.

I have set out to photograph the entirety of the small cemetaries in my area and so far have done the Town of Fountain cemetaries and a few outside of that. I find this very addicting!

Since connecting the present with the past is my personal goal, I will be happy to hand over any management of your family members to you. Just let me know. In return, I like to add information on my own and link them into a giant Find a Grave Family tree , so to speak.

I will also be happy to fulfill photo requests for cemeteries in Juneau or Monroe County, Wisconsin, if fairly close.

Permission is given to use any of my cemetery photos, as long as my name is on the photo credit.

RE: Isaac Taylor headstone photo
Yes add it to your family tree. It belongs with family! I don't need credit for it either. Though you might just document it somewhere so you know. Have a great day!

I just posted this pic. Had I known it was a photo request I would have not posted a chopped off name. In the near future I'll go back and see if I can find it again and take a better one. Faye

RE: more
Mary Covey Barlow was John Ticknor's sister in law - his wife's younger sister. Barlow is her married name. It seems that John Ticknor was buried in his wife's family plot. About 4 years after his death, his wife, Kate Laura Covey, remarried and later moved to Massachusetts. So, his wife is not buried there. At his sister in law's later death, either her name was added to the monument, or perhaps the monument was erected at that time (replacing perhaps, a smaller headstone). Don't know - it would be interesting to find out though. Perhaps on our next trip to Wisconsin, we'll see if we can look at the cemetery records

RE: John Ticknor
I will work on adding to his posting this weekend. There are many people who are interested in the Iron Brigade. Who knows, maybe this will be a way to find a photo of him. I will let you know when I've finished the update so you can read it. As far as the typo, you would be amazed at how "Ticknor" gets misspelled. I have an ethnic, fairly unusual maiden name and when I got married, I thought that Ticknor would be so much easier - but people get it wrong all the time! Anyway, considering all that you do, it would be amazing if you didn't have an occasional typo!

I think Mary Barlow may have been John Ticknor's mother, but I will have to double check. I'll let you know.

RE: John Ticknor
Does that mean I would be responsible for posting and correcting information regarding him? If so, yes. I could post many interesting facts and stories about him.

Thank you for posting the photos! We have wondered where John Ticknor was buried for years. I could not find anything, and then I read on the Antietem website that he was buried in New Lisbon. The search didn't turn up anything, so I looked through the list of "T" names and found Captain John Ticker. When I saw the description, I knew it was John Ticknor. Seeing your photo was fascinating! Thank you so much - you are truly providing a wonderful service.
