Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my husband (Steve Patterson) and I are interested in our genealogy histories and enjoy the "detective process" of finding our ancestors. After unexpectedly finding images of my great-grandparents' tombstones on the web, I was thrilled - I'd never seen their tombstones before. This helped us to realize that documenting cemeteries on the web is a wonderful way to help other genealogists find their relatives. We enjoy this tremendously and have started planning our vacations around which cemeteries we want to visit.

I am leaning on the tombstone of Alpheus Osborn, my great-great-great grandfather who lived in Fairfax, Iowa.

If you are a close relation to any people that we have listed and would like us to transfer the memorial to you, please let us know. Be sure to include the CEMETERY NAME where they are located and your FAG MEMBERSHIP NUMBER!

Family names that we are interested in are:
Missouri, Polk County: McDaniel, Phipps.
Kansas, Cowley, Sedgwick, Sumner Counties: Kessinger, Cooper, Green, Brenton, Wilsey, Osborn.
Kansas, Rice County: Greenbank, Crawford, Wilsey.

RE: John McDowell #27240414
Thank you, Cathy. I was hoping that you would know more because you created the memorial. I appreciate your quick response. I will keep digging :)

John McDowell #27240414
Hi Cathy,
I am hoping that you can help me work out a kink in my research. I believe that John McDowell #27240414 id my 3rd great uncle, and I am trying to locate his father's burial. John's mother shows up as a widow by the 1900 census, and I suspect that John and his father (also named John) may have died at about the same time. Do you know anything more about this burial or if there are connected burials in the area? Is there a place with records on these burials?

Thank you,
Renae

Release of a few Find a grave pages
Hi Cathy , I was wondering if you would release Warren and Helen Myers memorial #'S 37965181 and 37965164, along with L.Milton Myers memorial # 37965169 to me? I am working on the family tree and it would be so much easier if i could just go in and make the changes ect. without bothering you. My brother in law was Galen Myers and his parents were L.Milton and Lucille Myers. Galen's grandparents were Warren and Helen Myers. Thank you so very much. My member # is 48914656. Thanks again.

I just sent a suggestion to link Florinda's husband to her memorial. Unfortunately, there appears to be a duplication of Jeremiah, and I don't know which shows the correct burial location. I figure it's best to show both until the conflict is resolved.

#44936392 is a duplicate of #44938207. Sorry I couldn't send it to you thru the Edit button. there is some kind of spam popping up when you try to send edits. :-( Hopefully F-A-G will fix that.
