Bio Photo I feel it's so important to know where we came from. It seems every family has a person to keep all the details straight so I guess I've become that person for my family. I enjoy it!

RE: Thank You
Hi. I thought I would let you know I was back out at Blachly today and there is now a headstone for Jerry Wolfe. I have uploaded a couple of photos to his memorial.

Hi Joel,

You can request a photo of the headstone. I live in South Carolina, so trips to South Dakota are few and far between for me. Bethany is a densely populated cemetery, so you might want to request all the Hiebs to make sure you get what you need. There are not many volunteers in the area.

As for the linking, I only linked the parents, which I'm certain are correct from the US Federal Censuses. All the siblings were calculated connection through memorials I don't have control over.

The memorial was included in Bethany because it was on a cemetery census taking in the 1940s. It is possible that he was buried elsewhere, or was moved, or was just mentioned with his siblings on the stone in the other cemetery. Hard to say without having all the data, but you're doing the right thing by collecting it all and asking questions.

What I would suggest is getting a copy of the death certificate from the state of South Dakota and find out what's recorded there in terms of where he was buried along with his parents and spouse's name to make sure you have the right Jacob Hieb.

Good luck. Let me know how things turn out.

RE: Hieb Headstones
I saw that too! I was afraid to add his name to the list since it shows him to be elsewhere. Best of luck! :-)

Way back in 2012 you requested the transfer of baby
Paul Glen Good. I am sorry I didn't transfer it then but I am cleaning up my old e-mails this morning and came across it. Again I am sorry

RE: Hello
Hi Joel,

Thanks for the info for Mr. Funicello. I did not create the page, I only submitted the bio.

You can send the link info to and they will add the link to Annette's dad.

Thanks for the info.

Hi Joel,
Sorry, I just noticed your requests to transfer these memorials - must have been in a hurry when they came through and thought I had taken care of them when I hadn't. I'm a little forgetful sometimes and you may have to remind me :)

RE: Thanks Cliff!
They would be my great great great great grandparents. This would make us 4th cousins 1 time removed if I am not mistaken. Good luck with the move

RE: Hi!
Joel, good to hear from you. Benjamin Coolidge would be my grandfather, William Coolidge's great great grandfather. His great grandfather, William Benjamin Coolidge (Benjamins son), would be Harriet's brother. I have a photo of him accidentally attached to his sons profile

Unfortunately, I do not know where Melissa Grandy is buried. I know that her parents are Parker Grandy and Elizabeth Allen. I visited the cemetery in Elleburg about a year ago, and there is no mention of her. Being that she was his first wife, this is what you would expect. Oddly, no mention of his second wife either now that I think about it...I am willing to bet that Melissa is either buried in Keeseville or Ausable New York considering a time line based on census data. I have been able to trace Benjamin back to Boston and England, along with a connection to Calvin Coolidge which is not as close as you may think. If you are interested in any of the information I have contact me at and I will gladly give you what I have found in my research.

Great to hear from you,
