Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love American history, I like dealing with names, and I love solving problems. It was just a matter of time before I got into genealogy! 

None of the memorials I have posted are my relatives, and hence I have not researched them. I do try to add some detail to memorials though in an effort to identify them. 

If you want to write me about any of the memorials I've created, please leave a message on this page. To suggest a correction or edition for a particular memorial, please use the Edit button at the top of its page.

If I have posted a memorial of one of your relatives and you would like the memorial transferred to you, please use the method that FindaGrave has provided, which is thus: Go to the memorial page and click the Edit button. Of the choices that follow, click on "Suggest any other correction or addition." This will bring up a message box for you to write me, and the email FindaGrave sends will include a link to the memorial as well as to your profile page. Simply write me a note requesting the transfer, and please state how you are related to the person.

If there is an article that I have posted that you can use, feel free to copy it. All articles are in the public domain, that is, not copyrighted anymore, so you do not need my permission to use them. You'll find the source of the articles in the picture's caption.

Last, any gravestone pictures I shot myself as well as I could. Please copy and use them! Post them in your family tree on Ancestry or wherever. That's why I took them.

FindaGrave is a great website even though it's basically all about deaths! Still, it makes me think of the verse "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." (I John 5:11)

Sarah Hannah (Wilson) Boxer
Julia, would you happen to know if Sarah's husband, James Boxer, is buried with her? Their son, John Saxby Boxer, is buried at Monocacy Cemetery in Beallsville, Maryland.

Chief Allen Wright, Rev.Frank
THANK YOU, A SHOUT OUT FOR YOUR WORK! I am researching the Wright family, as I believe I am a descendant. You have done a wonderful job here, I am amazed. Please continue to manage this family; I have others, but not sure if I can keep up with this and 2 other pages. Thanks so much for all you do. Teresa, the 4th generation.

Thanks for what you do
I just happen to see some assistance that you gave another find a graver. Just wanted to say it's nice to see people help each other. Have a great day.

Sarah MacLeod Johnson
You were right. Louise Frees Johnson, Weston's 2nd wife's remains were sent to Ohio. Ferncliff Cemetery (where her parents are buried). It is the instructions on her funeral home records. I did not see that on Weston's. I'll put in for photo requests and see if I can't figure out if he is in Ohio.

I desire a high resolution picture of Dr. T F Brewster to include in my new history of the 54th Regiment Georgia Infantry if possible

Matilda, Oskar & Frank Sweder
Hello Julia,
First let me thank you so much for what you do!
August Martin Sweder was the 1/2 brother of my Great Grandfather Sven August Omar "Homer" Sweder. His parents were Caroline Mathilda Stång ands Martin Olson. However, Martin & Caroline Mathilda never married and he was raised (and adopted on October 3, 1866 in Fredriksshald, Ostfold Fylke, Norway) by his step-dad Theodor Johannesson Sweder & his mom Caroline Mathilda Stång. He was born February 17, 1863 in Billingsfors, Braksforsamling, Alvsborg, Sweden and died June 8, 1950 in Glendale, Los Angeles County, California.
He came to America and settled in Marquette in 1886 (departed Sweden October 22, 1886). His mother's brother Sven August Stång (w/family) & one of her sister's Anna Charlotta Stång (w/ husband Jacob Erick Larson & family) were already in Ishpeming & Marquette.
He married Matilda Charlotte Anderson on February 6, 1887 in Marquette, Marquette County, Michigan. They had the following children; Matilda Charlotte Sweder 1887-1932, August George Sweder 1888-1975, Anna Victoria Sweder 1891-1977, Frank Wilhelm Sweder 1892-1912 (buried with his mom), Esther Emelia Sweder 1894-1937, & Oskar Emanuel Sweder 1898-1898 (buried with his mom).
After Matilda died he married Anna C Anderson on November 25, 1899 in Marquette, Marquette Cty, Michigan. Anna was born March 20, 1853 in Sweden & died February 2, 1919 in Marquette. They did not have any children that I know of.
His 3rd and last wife was Hannah Mathilda she was born October 15, 1871 in Sweden and died December 19, 1950 in Glendale, Los Angeles County, California.
Martin only had children with his first wife Mathilda.

RE: Emily Ladd Keeler
My partner is a Ladd relative, so the transfer would be just fine! Thanks!

RE: Johnsons in Marquette Michigan!
Oh my goodness Julia, I am so sorry that I missed your last reply. Thank you so incredibly much for the information. I have struggled with my Dad's line sooooo much. You may have just shed some light on the subject for me.
Hope you are having a wonderful summer. Stay cool, stay safe.

P.S. I have looked at Seeking Michigan in the past. I don't find their website very easy to narrow things down a bit. But I will keep looking. :)
