Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

RE: John Abshire #56792464
Thanks - I must have checked the wrong block. I have the same information that you have about his place of death being in Illinois.

I would like your permission to copy gravestone photos to my Tunks Ancestry Family Tree. I will credit you as the source.

Some how William Calvin Massey was linked to Ruth Ogle Derry as a husband. William Calvin Massey is the father of Ruth's 1st Husband William Clyde Massey and her 2nd Husband is Virgil William Treat.
Thanks for your help

Albert Arenz
For Albert W Arenz;

the bio you wrote states that Albert was a soldier with the 25th Illinois volunteer infantry regiment, but the correct regiment was the 26th, as the photo I added (and other evidence) shows. So can you edit the bio? Thanks.

RE: Nancy Westbrook 30024732
Well, apparently Find A Grave is not going by what AJ wrote because there are many obits and DC's on here. They are really needed for documentation! I am asking you to please give me control over my great grandmother's memorial, then you won't to worry about it.

Thanks for the additional info on Stacy and Thomas. I am not sure if Thomas was a Civil War vet or not.
