|Bio and Links|
I have always had an interest in family history & genealogy. Several years ago I actively engaged in discovering my "roots", and joined Find A Grave in 2011 as part of my discovery process. I have benefited from the labors of others and decided to pay it forward by becoming a contributor to the Find A Grave website with a desire to help others locate the final resting places of their ancestors. |
I am happy to transfer a memorial per Find A Grave Guidelines, or make any corrections or updates to a specific memorial as needed. Please send your request(s) using the EDIT button on the respective memorial.
I spend many hours tracking info, obits, family connections, etc., when I post a memorial for someone and try not to post a memorial with just a date of birth and a date of death. I take a personal interest in each memorial and endeavor to treat that person as if they were my "family". It is never my intention to offend anyone and I do my best to never duplicate a memorial. Please accept my contribution to Find A Grave as it is intended; to "Preserving The Past" with a sincere heart toward the legacy and memory of a person or their family.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: I am the "Grammy" of three precious grandchildren. My daughter and three little grandchildren are my "cemetery search" assistants. They love going with me to locate grave markers. My daughter and six year old grandson, who loves photography, assist me by helping to take the photo's and my other grandchildren tag along for the "adventure". It is great seeing the interest they are showing in the effort to help others find their ancestors.
**My oldest daughter, Amanda, went to her heavenly home on October 24, 2006. She was a new bride of only three weeks and three days, (home one week from her honeymoon) when she lost her life in a car accident. Please take a moment and visit her memorial page; ~ AMANDA RENEE ~ Thank you and God Bless You and Yours!
"Because we know the Lord Jesus, death is not the end. It is merely as if I went to sleep in the adjacent room.
I go on being me, and you go on being you, and we go on being the same to one another.
Talk to me as you once did, speaking as you did before.
Go on smiling as if I were still here. Think of me, pray for me and ensure my name is always spoken in a natural manner, without shadows surrounding it.
Death is a part of life and I still go on in your heart, even when you do not see me, I will always be by your side.
Until we meet again ~ life must go on and all will be well."

|Anita R. Austill||RE: Marvin Brown|
You are welcome, so glad I could help.
|John Rose||Ephraim Kibbey III|
Find-A-Grave has him buried in the Moore-Johns Cemetery in Clinton County Ohio. I've been to the cemetery but haven't found the stone. Grown up in weeds and most stones are laying flat of buried. I'm researching all casualties of all wars for Clinton County. Find-A-Grave lists him as a Civil War Veteran. I haven't been able to find a reference showing that. Do you have anything that shows he was a Civil War Veteran? Any help would be appreciated,
|Bill Cromer||Thank you so much|
I appreciate your quick response to my request for
Robert Lawrence Kalter. By adding his 1st wife other researchers may be helped.
I share your love for Jesus!!

You are very welcome.
|Diane Bland||RE: LOUISA KELLER VAN WINKLE|
First of all, I want to apologize for my tardiness in thanking you for the updated information for Louisa. I should have checked the census more carefully. Another lesson learned! I also heard from Colleen Sanders Brown who photographed Louisa and William Wallace's headstones. She said that there were no dates on Louisa's headstone, just that she was the wife of William. I show her parents were Phillip and Jane (Perry) Keller but that hasn't been confirmed. Again, thanks for the help and clarifying all of the information and updating the memorial page. I appreciate all of your hard work.

He was my 3rd Great Grandfather. My limited skills at ancestry is somewhat limited. I noticed your comments about his first wife and subsequent marriage to his sister-in-law. I would love to talk with you at some point.

|Diane Bland||RE: LOUISA KELLER VAN WINKLE|
Debbie, thanks for the prompt reply. I will contact the photo submitter and hopefully she will be able to help me with the date verification. If corrections are to be made, I'll let you know. Thanks so much again.

If you go to the Illinois Ancestors web page you can see a photo of their headstone
|PJ Monroe||Re: John M. Ditmer|
Thank you for your efforts in trying to locate the burial place for John M. Ditmer and wife and for your message. I had a problem with John M. Ditmer on this Memorial Page because he would have been 102 years old. I think the John Ditmer being referred to is John M.'s son who did die in 1936. I appreciate YOU.
