*A great big thank you goes out to all that have left tokens/flowers on my relatives memorials!!*

*Another great big thank you to all that have added links, maiden names, etc. that I have requested!! You all are so wonderful!!*

Please visit Jakobe Bryon Bush, age 4. I've known his Mommy since she was a little girl. My heart will forever stay broken.

Cheyenne Rose Lloyd, age 8. I used to work with her grandmother and my husband works with her father, grandfather, and uncle.

Friends of my son, so sad:
Aaron Jay "Buckwheat" McCoy, age 19
James Michael "Mike" Ray, age 16
Dylan Allen Kane Boggs, age 17

Friends of my husband:
Tracy Allen Sherfey, age 26
Christopher Wayne "Chris" Morris, age 33

Colorado Springs Police Officers killed in the line of duty and were fellow Officers and friends with my brother.

There is a special place in my heart for the Moore, OK tornado victims and for the whole town. My husband and I lived in Moore and Norman in 1989-1992. Our only child was born there during that time.

My husband's niece's husband, Mark Byrd passed away Aug. 15, 2014. He was 41 years old.

My niece's husband, Aric Fleury passed away Jan. 31, 2012. He was 26 years old. It breaks my heart. I'm sure my mom is taking very good care of him!!

My mother, Marie Wolf Doll Lemesany, passed away May 18, 2011. I miss her so much!

My father-in-law, Ewell "Gene" McGowan passed away Sept. 22, 2010.

My brother, Steve passed away July 30, 2008. It was on our mother's 82nd birthday. She was never the same after he passed away. They are together now.

My father, Louis Doll, Jr., passed away in 1971 when I was 6 years old. Researching his side of the family has been a challenge. He was born in Monument, Liberty Township, Centre, PA. His parents were from Munson, Clearfield Co., PA. He was raised in Wharton, Morris Co., NJ, and was stationed at Camp Carson (now Fort Carson) in Colorado Springs when he met my mother in Dec. 1946. She was born in St Charles, MO and was raised in Colo. Spgs., CO. My mom was Miss Camp Carson in 1945.

I was born in NJ, raised in Colorado Springs, El Paso Co., CO, and now live in Barren Co., KY.

Researching the following:
St Charles Co., Mo- Wolf, Gentemann, LePage, Himmelsbach, Klinghammer, plus other branches and twigs!!

Clearfield Co., PA- Doll, Bailey, McDonald, Jenney, Hendershot, plus some unknowns!! Please wish me luck!!

Wharton, Morris Co., NJ- Doll

Russell Co. KY- McGowan, Harris, Tucker, Popplewell and others

If you are doing research in Glasgow, these are great websites.

Glasgow Municipal Cemetery list. It is not up to date.



If I have created a memorial of your relative in Barren Co., KY I will gladly transfer.

Sad cemetery hopping buddy moved out of state. Everybody else I know thinks I am too weird going to cemeteries!! LOL So I will not be going to cemeteries that are off the main roads until I find someone to go with me.

Summer 2011 Due to three pinched nerves in my neck I can't get out much and get photos. :(

Summer 2012 Still having problems with pinched nerves and now I have DVT (blood clots) in my left leg. Will life ever get any better?

Spring 2013 Life is not much better. I am trying to get to the Glasgow Cemetery a couple of times a week, for a very short time, to help build my strength up. It helps that I have a map of the cemetery and can go right to the plot and row to get the photos. It takes me about 3 days to recover every time I go but it brings me much joy to help others out with their genealogy work. :)

Thank you

Your dedication to PERFECTION
I just want to express a few words, simple but most sincere. Thank you for using your time to turn memorials from fiction to history. There are tines when I find incorrect copy-paste on wrong decedent. There are times cemeteries are entered under multiple names.
You and contributor "LAURA" ARE MIRACLE WORKERS..

RE: Raymond and Bessie McCurdy-40356207
Now that you mention it...I recall that my own mother died in Springfield, Mo and her SS listed her as Page, AZ...which is where my sister lived...I guess mom's cks where being sent there. It is always a problem with women...they seem to disappear once they marry....thanks for catching that "Gereld" thing. My brother was born in Ash Grove, and Gerald seemed to be a very popular name in the area.

RE: Raymond and Bessie McCurdy-40356207
In my family tree an Aunt list all the children having been born on the same Elkland, Webster County, Mo farm.
the census doesn't change their location to Greene County until after the last child is I went with that. Not sure even then if they moved or the boundary moved....if you have info that confirms something else I would love to know it.

Do you have an Ancestry account? Her death certificate is available there. They erroneously transcribed her name on the death certificate as William L. Pedigo.
