Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Tech Lab teacher in middle school.
I enjoy genealogy and creating photo album pages of grandkids. I especially enjoy taking pictures of headstones. Cemeteries are lovely, peaceful and quiet.

PLEASE use the edit button to request transfers and make changes/additions to memorials.
Thank you.

Also, since I take a large number of cemstone photos, it is time prohibitive to clean them, especially the older ones, before taking a pic. I will be glad to retake any photos upon request.

AND, I would really appreciate any email communication to include the memorial numbers of the person(s) to whom you are referring. It is so time consuming (and open to error) to find names using the search tool.

May I use the monument/marker photo's that you contributed to the Find A Grave memorials for George Ladd and Siloan Williams, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (

You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Robert Scheetz 76458451
Yes I do know that, but these are people who I was very close and they all deserve more than a date they deserve to have their stories told. One guy has 45,000 memorials up with no markers or pictures or stories with the exception newspaper obits on some. These people lived and made a difference in my life as extended family, they were more like my brothers and sisters than cousins since I only had one much older brother who did not live near us when I was growing up he had already moved to CA. I have been looked at by Find A Grave for one and was given permission to leave it up because it tells a story of the person with pictures and that one is the mother of all these children, while the other one was asked to be taken down. It is in the bylaws or directions that if you are judged by a panel of Find A Grave people and yours is deemed to be of more importance by content then you are allowed to keep yours up. It is hard to see who has what up when they have names misspelled or missing middle name who is who, but most of the ones I found for these cousins were only dates and many no monument pictures either done from newspaper clippings. Just another number for their egos!

If you want to it is up to you. I have nothing to really say about Robert I am not even sure what he died of, probably diarrhea. I looked up what were the main causes of death in the 1920's of infants and that was the only one that seemed feasible. He was born in the Stone House my Great Grandfather built because his parents were living there at the time.

Transfer Management Request
Dear Mae,
I wonder if you can transfer management of some cemetery memorials you have created? They are relatives of mine. First Marvin Madrigal, Find a Grave # 142326827
His wife Ramona V. Madrigal # 142326808
Their son Ramond L. Madrigal # 142326788
Also, there may be a mistake on the memorial
Louann A. Madrigal Pollock # 100904555
The city records say her maiden name is Davis. Could have been a mistake since her & her husband's grave is right next to my family's Madrigal graves.
Thanks & God Bless you for all your great work.

RE: 6785325 Menno Harms Saathoff
Hi Mae-

A woman who did her family histories for many generations and over many decades sent me a large package of detailed family trees, many from that area where Menno Harms Saathoff is buried. I took her word for it that Menno is buried where I put him. That doesn't mean she and I couldn't be wrong but that's how I came to put his memorial there. The easiest way to resolve it would probably be to make another photo request for him in the Wymore cemetery and see if someone finds him there.

Do you descend from Saathoffs? I do and have a cousin in what's now Germany who did extensive research and found the common ancestors for all the Saathoffs.
