|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.|
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.
But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.
I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.
With that said, I am not a "collector" of memorials, of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family. I am still fairly new on this site, and I am learning through trial and error to make sure my memorials are correct. If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish. I also don't need anyone to lecture me. I am an adult. I have reasonable thinking abilities, and I am willing to work with anyone if approached in a respectful, and courteous manner.
I understand the "guidelines" of Find-A-Grave, for direct family lines, and transfers. This should also include our spouses family. It is silly to me that we have to have two separate accounts to achieve the same goal.
I personally feel that family memorials should be willingly and lovingly transferred to family members. We are the ones who truly care about them.
I do not need to "Own" all of them,but I do want them to be as correct as possible, therefore,I have done a lot of edit requests.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.
If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.

I agree with you ! Bobbie
|Teresa (White) Frazer||RE: John Marquis White...|
Carol, thanks for getting back to me. My personal email address is email@example.com
I live in southern Minnesota now, and grew up the first part of my life in Iowa.
It is great that someone went out to the White Cemetery, I remember my Grandfather talking about it years ago and he and his 2 brothers (George & Albret) actually went there and found it, but brought back no pictures or real information, other than they went. My father has always wanted to go or at least see what it looks like.
I have some pictures that my aunt sent me copies of when my grandfather, Gerald White (Linden's son) passed away. I have one of the Marquis White family (big group) and one of him and Sarah with 2 little boys. I also have copies of Linden and his wife Isabella's headstones,and one of Linden when he played baseball.
As for the spelling of Linden's name, we have always had it with an "i", but on the paperwork I have copies of from when he passed and the military when to ship him here to Minnesota to be buried had it with and "i" then crosses it out and respelled it with and "e", but the headstone has it as "i".
I do also have other documents, such as Linden's WW1 registration paperwork.
If you send me your contact info I can send them to you.
Thanks so much, Teresa

Carol, I am wondering if you have anymore information, pictures or documents on those of the White family that is buried at the White Family Cemetery in Colorado or anybody in the White family.
John would be my great-great grandfather. I am the great-grand daughter of their son Linden.
I am doing a family tree for my father for Christmas and have searched about as far as I can.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I made a contact with a woman who has the records for Huntley Cemetery. She was able to find the new request I had today, but she says she has no records for Josiah White in the cemetery.
Sorry. We tried.
Enjoy the holiday.
|James Bellert||JOSIAH WHITE|
A few weeks ago I searched Huntley Cemetery for a grave marker for Josiah White, but was unlucky in finding it. I have another request at Huntley Cemetery and will look again for Josiah's grave.
I'm trying to find who has the records for that cemetery. I have a couple of emails to Huntley Village officers and am waiting for their replies. Maybe I'll get lucky. In any case, I'll let you know what (if anything) I find.

I will look into this immediately and give it my best. Mark
Thank you for trying to search for his grave for a photo.
You have a photo of the grave of his wife, Louisa Jane Benham Cannon, 64385780, which is your memorial, and there is a stone for her, with Peter's name on it. It just doesn't have Either one of their death year, which is 1930.
They share the stone with Louisa's son, Harry B. Ervin, 64385729. He is linked to his father, but not his mother. Could you please do that?

I have added the info you sent on her birth and death, and the note about her mother. Her husband had already been linked by someone else. She's not a relative. Please let me know via the edit button if you would like her transferred to your care.
|Tracey Harry||Fern I. Crago|
Are you a relative? I will gladly transfer.
