I began my family ancestry research in 2007 after the loss of my brother, grandmother, and father-in-law within a 1 year period...I just wish that I had started this sooner when those who could answer my questions were still around--not to mention identify people in old pictures...I have just recently signed up as a volunteer for my local cemeteries...it is very peaceful to take a break and help others find their ancestors resting places...there is something very comforting in returning the favor for others who have helped me...|
As I find family members, I am creating memorials for them and linking them with the family. The only memorials I have are family members so if you would like more information or have questions, please email me. My family research is ongoing and these memorials are in conjunction with researching so I am slow about creating them but very much working on it.
I am currently also checking and/or creating memorials from the stone readings of the following cemeteries:

|Lisa Russell Pflueger||Palmer D. Eliot|
Hello Evelyn - I am wondering if you are related to Palmer D. Eliot 1796 - 1876, born in Montgomery Co, NY and buried in Paris, Illinois. My great great grandfather was James Eliot who migrated to California from Texas in 1859. I am reading a 1910 journal that James Eliot left behind. In the back he has written a number of addresses, one of which is I.K. Eliot of Paris, Illinois (which caused me to search Find A Grave for Eliots in Paris, Illinois, leading me to Palmer). James was the son of Sanders/Saunders Eliot who was born in 1810 in New York. Even after extensive searching, we have not been able to find out anything about Sanders' parents. I'm just wondering if Palmer and Saunders might be related. I am hoping there is a connection that might lead us to Sanders' parents. Thank you!

Sanders can be found at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=10229058
Thank you for adding the photo of Lester Hoskins' gravestone.
|Wayne Hatcher||Barnett Hatcher burial location?|
Dear Ms. White,
I was wondering what is your basis for stating that Barnett Hatcher Find A Grave#156756768 is buried in the Hatcher Cemetery?? He and his wife, Susannah are my 4th great grandparents, and I have been researching them for over 20 years, and I have not been able to determine any reliable data as to where they are buried.
|Anonymous||Addition to the Calvin VanVickle children|
In viewing my grandfather's burial site (Ernest VanVickle), I found that you only had 12 children listed for Calvin and Anna Deniza VanVickle. They had 13 children. William VanVickle is the one you did not list. He was born 2 Apr 1902 in Meeker County, MN and died 27 May 1990 in St. Cloud, Stearns County, MN. These folks were my great-aunts and great-uncles. Thank you for making this addition. dorothywilliams9962
