Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am active in genealogy, cemetery preservation and historical societies. I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina but I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I've felt a real sense of family since Find A Grave has enabled me to see the final resting place of so many relatives; I hope the photos I've taken for others provide the same comfort.

I've recently begun trying to find small cemeteries in my area that have been ignored over the years to transcribe them before they are lost to history forever. I always try and search for death certificates, obituaries, etc. - but if you are related to any of the people from the memorials I've entered and you have updates, or if you want transfers, please let me know!

I will not transfer memorials of my own relatives and I do not do "mass" transfers.

My famous relatives:
5th great grand uncle, Robert E Rogers
9th great grandmother, Mary Towne Estey
2nd counsin 8x removed, Elisha Hinman

Please use the "EDIT" - "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" function on the memorial page if you have corrections or updates. Thanks!

Tristram Winslow Hillman
Hi Diane, Thanks for transferring Catherine Tompkins#63104796 to me. I have attached her correct husband Edmund Tristram Hillman #63104797 however I am unable to remove their son Tristram Winslow Hillman #65583529 into proper order. Could you look to see if you can correct the order so that he is the couples son and not spouse to his mother?
Thank you

Mrs Catherine Tompkins Hillman
Hi there; Thank you for taking the time to transcribe my Ancestor Catherine's Vitals, was wondering if you could transfer her over to me. Also noticed you are a descendant of Mary Towne Estey as am I which would make us cousins.
Cheers from Canada!

Krupa, Semrau, Ramstack, and Krasnan

I've uploaded the headstone photo to Joseph Krupa's memorial page and was wondering if you're also looking for the Semrau's, Ramstack's and Krasnan's in Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee.

They are located in the same area with Joseph Krupa and thought I should let you know that I have the headstone photos to: Gertrude C. Semrau, Alice Krasnan, Cecilia D. Ramstack, Harold L. Ramstack, and Daniel Peter Semrau.

Let me know and I'll upload the photos to their memorial pages or I can create the pages then transfer them to you.

I've already uploaded Chester Semrau's headstone photo.

RE: Edits for Infant Yehle and Helen M Yehle
I resubmitted the edits for Plot information, as I described earlier (for consistency and sortability).
