Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am attempting to document all of my ancestors in Southwest Wisconsin. I also find and photograph solitary graves of Civil War Soldiers or otherwise unaccompanied Veteran graves.

If I am credited with a memorial of a family member of yours, that is not in mine, please use the "Edit, Suggest a Correction" option to request transfer, I would be happy to oblige.

Recently I have found many of my photographs uploaded to other sites without so much as a mention of who it really belongs to. I have always given permission to those who have ASKED FOR IT !
If the photo is of a JACOBSON, JACKSON, GORDON, FORSETH or related family, it's probably already on for you to "SAVE" to your tree.

"A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendants".

Violette Tessendorf
Congratulations to your Aunt Violette on celebrating her 95th! Sorry about the premature memorial, but when transcribing cemetery records, there is just no way to know if it is a "pre-need". I will transfer her memorial to you, and you can decide whether or not to delete it.

WALLIUS William Sr photo request
I expect you noticed I fulfilled the photo request for William WALLIUS Sr at Calvary Cemetery Gloucester MA. I took a picture of the back of the gravestone but did not post it because it lists his wife by maiden name and birth date which may be a concern for identity theft. I would be happy to send that photo along to you if you'll provide an email address. Good luck in your research. Pat D

Good Morning! I just added the obituary information to Josephs bio. Thank you for the information. I did omit the living relatives for privacy concerns. Have a Great Weekend! Cindy

Alma Bales
Just fulfilled a request for you for Alma Bales in Oakwood Cemetery, Vermilion County Illinois.

I do not believe this is the Alma Bales you are looking for.

Doing more research, I should this Alma Bales was born 8/1/1869, died 1/5/1947. She is the wife of Turner Bales, and the daughter of Elisha Branham & Drusilla (un-sure of her last name)

Anyway, just wanted to let you know so you can continue your search. I did not find any other Alma Bales in the Vermilion County area, in the data I have access to.

Hi Barry,
Sorry I have not answered sooner. I have just moved from Oregon to Maryland and am presently living with my daughter until I find a place of my own.
All the Allen info I have is on the computer. I did not find your friend on my list of Allens.

RE: Big Hollow_Larsons/Andersons
Hi Barry,

So in regards to Michael and Oline Larsen, I finally got some more answers. Yes, you are correct, they are their grandchildren. Even Gena Oleson. She is their great grandaughter. She was Elise Fredrikke Bernstdatter (Bernt Andersen's daughters) daughter. She came over in 1906 from Norway and died shortly after in 1908. I havent found her death certificate yet, I cant even find exactly where she died, still looking.

I was recently contacted by relatives in Norway(they found me from, so they have provided me some great information and pictures.

Just wanted to update you in case you were interested :)

Re: Elbert Bennett
Hi Barry: Is their middle name also start with a "B" ? I understand that their nick name was Bert. Do they have a middle name that also begins with a "B" ? Susie
