Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: I will have limited internet use for a time. I will try my best to accomplish edits and answer messages, but I do anticipate some delays. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

RE: Hurley Cemetery

As you come in the gate, you are at the back corner of the cemetery. There are two sections and there are trees across the center of both sections. If you go to the front and face the stones, I believe Joseph's stone is on the left side near the trees. The other Withee stone (the brown one) is near the front of the left side (I think).

The cemetery is not all that big. It took me about 2 hrs to photograph each section. I doubt you will have trouble finding the stones. BTW, there is a board/sign in the middle of the cemetery listing all the people buried there and the plot numbers for the graves.

RE: Mary Petersen Larsen
#102786593 is Mary Peterson Mommsen and Christian Mommsen's son. He was stillborn. I have not been able to find Christian's death date or burial info yet.
I do not have info on Eva Larsen or Ole Larsen (probably a relative as John Larsen's father, Rasmus Larsen, was executor for an Ole Larsen). John C. Larsen is John Larsen and Mary Perterson Mommsen Larsen's son. He only lived a few days, B: 1933, D: Feb 1933.
John Larsen (#9608664) is buried with his first wife, Julia Mortensen (#125442321) in Springwell Danish Cemetery, Omaha.
I do know about the Washington Co. GS site because you mentioned it on Mary's page - Thank you, I learned some new information there.
Although Mary was step-mom to Esther, Edward, Elmer, and Elsie, they thought of her as Mom and their kids called her Grandma. I grew up knowing her as Grandma Mary. She was a remarkable seamstress and could make pretty much anything you could show her a picture of or describe to her.
Hope this helps put some pieces together.

Joseph P. Fletcher #118432805
The account for this memorial (FELIX 5574) is disabled. No suggestions or requests for transfers can be processed. I don't anticipate the situation changing. Therefore, I will keep my memorial for Joseph Pettingill Fletcher #146966899.
Best regards,

I would like control of my Stockhorst family memorials again. I am not certain how you are gaining control. But this is my family.

Heinrich Jr. 132829477
Maria 132829378

I had them linked to their parents and now all of the work I did with photo's and linkages are all undone.
