Bio and Links
Bio Photo First and most importantly, I want to thank everyone who has taken time to fulfill my requests for photos. There are many of you and I don't always send personal "Thank You"s. Just know I appreciate every one. FAG members are the greatest!

The more I dig into genealogy, the deeper I get. The further back I go, the further ahead I get.


It's in my DNA.
Genealogy: it's a life!
Genealogy: the study of horse thieves and fence-jumpers.
I just dug up the idea.
Speak softly but carry a big shovel.
Move over! someday I'll need some room.
Every family tree has a few nuts and fruits. Did my ancestors have sex?
Help, I'm stuck in my family tree and can't get down.
Genealogy: will I ever find time to do anything else?
If your naughtiness is recorded, I'll find it.
Some of my favorite relatives are the ones in the cemeteries.
Tell the undertaker to put a smile on my face so I'll look good for the genealogists' camera.


A cemetery detective always gets her man. Leave no stone unturned.
Actual headstone: I told you I was sick!
Atheist: All dressed up and no place to go.
Wife's headstone: "Mother of Three". Husband's headstone: Father of two".
Town Cemetery Sign" Drive carefully. "We have two cemeteries and no hospital."
Cemeteries: I never met a relative I didn't like.
Cemeteries don't scare me, tax season does.
"Say cheese!"
I'm never asked by relatives "what are YOU doing here?"
At this family reunion, everyone gets along.
Street sign at cemetery: Dead end.
If their favorite cousin never came around, will I do?
Cemeteries: People are dying to get in.
Unpopular with the ladies? He couldn't even get a date on his gravestone!
Do grave diggers only tell dirty jokes?


Once I told the undertaker he couldn't close the coffin until I found my contact lens.
Mortician: someone who tries to look sad at a $50,000 funeral.
The aged woman took out a funeral plan for cremation. The confirmation letter offered her a warm welcome.
Dumb blonde: a passer-by asked her as he saw a funeral procession "Who died?" The blonde replied "I think it's the guy in the coffin."
What happens if your check for the funeral bounces?
My mother-in-law died because she was kicked by a donkey. How much do you want for the donkey?
A man's mother-in-law died while they were visiting the Holy Land. It cost $20,000 to ship her home. The man immediately said "ship her home!" A man died here 2,00 years ago and later rose from the dead. I can't take that chance."


Mortician: "After work, let's have a cold one."
Mortician leaving a party: "See you soon!"
Do undertakers enjoy their job? Of corpse they do.
Mortician: "I give everyone I meet a smile."
You stab 'em, we slab 'em.
Undertakers are nice. They're the last to let people down.
Very good news: Every lawyer needs an undertaker.
Memento of famous person: taking a snapshot of them shaking hands with the deceased.
What did one mortician say to the other mortician? "My wife told me to stop taking my work home with me."
"Do I really look like a people person?"
Bumper sticker: Have a nice day!
"See, he really did have a heart"
There was an undertaker that signed all his letters with…."Eventually, Yours."
"That's the second biggest one I've ever seen!"
"Let's see if this guy really has the guts."
"Sorry, we don't have a lay-away plan."


Death is God's way of issuing updates.
An old husband on his death bed reached for a freshly baked cookie. His wife said, "Leave them alone, they're for the funeral!"
Why do I read the Bible so much? I'm cramming for my finals.
When death comes knocking, tell him I already left.
Practicing doctor: They bury their mistakes.
When I'm at the hospital, I don't want death to come visiting.
At his 100th birthday party, the man was asked his favorite day. He replied, "The day I walked down the isle to where she was waiting for me, kissed her cheek and then had the coffin lid screwed down."
Why don't corpses' suits have pockets?
Bad Luck: Being told the day you die you've won the lottery is enough to give you a heart attack.
Marriage: a temporary insanity, curable by death.
Death isn't a word, it's a sentence.
Florist mistake: good luck on your new venture.
Husband to wife: "If you don't drive more carefully, the newspaper will print your age."

and finally....


Deceased to IRS: "Come and get it! I always told you where to go".
Deceased man's final request: to have his final IRS payment buried with him and to tell the IRS to come get it.
Oh well, what ever happens, there's always taxes.
Just mail my ashes to the IRS with this note "Now you have everything!"
Taxes isn't a four letter word, but it should be.
A fool and his money are soon parted. The rest of us wait until income tax time.
Death and taxes are inevitable, but death doesn't repeat itself.
One can be born free and then be taxed to death.
Of course you can't take it with you, and with high taxes, lawyer's fees, and funeral expenses you can't leave it behind either.
Notice, funeral costs come with taxes.
"You're going to audit me? Over my dead body!"
The wages of sin are death, but taxes go on.
Red flag for an audit: You've left a will.

RE: 59135172 Martinson, KS
Hi Sally--

Sorry, I don't know anything about that family. I just walked the cemetery and took photos of the stones.

RE: Florence H. Reiner - deleted
Thanks for deleting the incorrect memorial. We have found at least nine of them that you've added to the incorrect cemetery so you'll find additional emails from over the past year or more.

Thank you for sending the info on William and Elisabeth. Have you confirmed the info from Doris Rex Schutte and the others? I look forward to taking a look at it.

RE: Hannah wife of Timothy Searfoss
I entered Hannah from cemetery records. The relationship to Timothy was calculated by the entry of Timothy by T Moore who probably sent me the maiden name. Perhaps T Moore can shed some light on the situation.

Rose Hills in Whittier
Go to and click on the grave locator service. You can find the grave location there. The guards are at gate 1 - Lionda is at gate 17 - quite a distance away considering Rose Hills is the largest cemetery in the USA.

Photo Request Eliza Blair
I searched for Eliza "Blair" and was unable to find her. I did find an Eliza "Bair" with the exact birth and death information. Is there a typo here or maybe you were provided bad information? Let me know. If so, I can upload the pic and you can edit the memorial.

Have a great day

Emily Richards, Philadelphia National Cemetery
Hello Sally,

Regarding your request for Emily Richards' photo at Philadlephia National Cemetery: The gravestone at the site mentions only Philip. See Find-A-Grave Memorial #2546856.

Generally, only the male soldiers are buried at this cemetery, although it is not uncommon for soldiers' wives to be buried with them. In these cases, the wife's name and death information is usually inscribed on the reverse side of the gravestone. In this case, the reverse side of Philip's gravestone is blank, and neighboring stones do not mention Emily. Children generally are not buried at the National Cemetery.

The PA Dept. of Health's death indexes list an Emily S. Richards as having died in Philadelphia on December 22, 1924. The certificate number is 122485. You may order her death certificate from the PA State Archives using this form. The Free Library of Philadelphia also has old newspapers in which you might find an obituary that confirms her burial location.

Elizabeth Scherer Klein
This is most likely the daughter of Sara Scherer. She is buried in the same row as her mother Sara and sister Sara Anna.
