Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

Permission to use photo
I found your photo of the gravesite of Andrew Elliott (Find A Grave Memorial# 30946961) and family members in Oak Ridge Cemetery. I am researching the Elliott line - my grandfather was Hobart Frank Elliott of Oklahoma.

Request your permission to attach this photo to my family tree and to upload it to my synch'ed tree on I would of course give you credit for the photo.

Thank you,

Some how William Calvin Massey was linked to Ruth Ogle Derry as a husband. William Calvin Massey is the father of Ruth's 1st Husband William Clyde Massey and her 2nd Husband is Virgil William Treat.
Thanks for your help

Albert Arenz
For Albert W Arenz;

the bio you wrote states that Albert was a soldier with the 25th Illinois volunteer infantry regiment, but the correct regiment was the 26th, as the photo I added (and other evidence) shows. So can you edit the bio? Thanks.
