Please use the EDIT button on the top right of the memorial page when you want to send a correction since it provides me with the links I need. Please verify and double check your info for accuracy.

Because I receive so many emails, I may not have time to reply back, but the entries will be made.

Maiden name is Brownell.

Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

RE: Photo's
I moved about year ago, I have several photos that I took from the cemetery. Periodically I do check the requests and check my photos. I remember when I was able to get that request down to 146, I was proud of that. I will check the photos again and see if I have any you are looking for.

Ella Wilson #46207982
The only Ella Wilson I could locate on the website I have been using to do my research was "Ella M. Wilson 1869-1945" buried at Woodmere with other Wilson's (Claude, Frank & William). Do you know if Ella's middle initial was "M"? I took at picture of the marker but will not upload it until you verify it is the correct marker for Ella. (I have found other errors in the recording of info into findagrave so this could very well be the Ella you are looking for.)

Zachary Coiner
Jacob Coyner
The Koiner family members used 3 main spellings of their surname. Koiner, Coiner and Coyner. Some family members changed it often. On one census they would be Koiner the next census Coiner etc. I have members from the same family where the children all used a different spelling.

The name on the gravestone is the name its suppose to be listed under.

RE: Links
Much appreciated! The Boy Scouts got a lot of work done clearing today and go back in October for the repairs to the obliterated stones. So proud of them for their work!

RE: Boy Scouts
I agree! Just go to your edit tab and you can accept the links there for the Brownell babies to their parents, the Wilbur girls.

Yes, I do still take photos at Hillside. The office doesn't like to give out locations as a rule so it really helps if the location is included in the request.

RE: George Leroy Shepler
Barb, your very welcome, glad I could help. I had taken that photo back in July with some other Shepler's. Since George didn't have a death date I took it he was still among us. Been there 12 years, someone dropped the ball.
