Bio and Links
Bio Photo Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a link to a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave. I was amazed, became hooked on this site, and have been contributing ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links.

I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I just try to add data. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries currently do not list burial or disposition details. Those people still deserve to be remembered here.

Unless one of my memorials is my relative or close friend, I do transfer memorials if you can and will add information.

Please let me know if I have an error so it can be corrected.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Feel free to contact me.

RE: McVay, McVeigh
That's fine. Just interesting that they changed the way their name was spelled. I had a family name of Hoar and the guy changed it to Oar. And my family had a name with one M, but somewhere along the way some of the members decided to add two M's. So some spell their name with one M and others with two. It never changes the fact that we are all related. :)

Victor Holzhauer
His obit is in the Joliet Herald on December 15, 1984, Section 2, page 3. I cannot access it but the Joliet Library and the Herald both have copies.

If I took a guess, I would say he is at Memorial Park Cemetery just outside of Pontiac. If cremated, his ashes may have been interred/scattered there as well. I couldn't find anything else. Sorry. Pam

RE: Mary Holzhauer
Oh, ooops! Sorry. Well, you got the idea anyway, I guess. I'll see what I can find on Victor. There have always been lots of Holzhauer's around here. Still are. I might be able to find something. I will let you know. Thanks, Pam
