First, let me state I do this for my love of cemeteries and history, and it's a positive way to give back to the community.

I DON'T do this just to increase my MEMORIALS as many do here!!

I volunteer my time and efforts to honor requests for anyone who asks.
You may send me an email and ask personally for me to photograph a graves site, or go through the Find A Grave method by posting a request from the memorial directly.

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

PLEASE don't post decedents pictures from the local newspapers on my memorials; if you do, I will notify Find A Grave administrators.

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

If you would like to have the available obituary for your relative or loved one in the Colorado Springs area, I may have an obituary archived; please ask!!

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

You may use my photographs for your own personal genealogy files under two simple conditions: ASK ME FIRST please, and then give me credit for the photograph. I have had people copy my pictures then post them on and on genealogy websites....and that is NOT right to use my work without my permission, which is why it is now copyrighted material!!

Please note: I am inactive on Find a Grave from the end of September - March.

RE: Olav Hanson / Memorial # 144725051
I do not believe the 1870 census is our Olaf. In 1900, Olaf and family are in Menominee, Wis., and he indicates he immigrated in 1880. I will check with a cousin of mine who has done extensive family research on this side of the family; he's been to Norway for research as well. Will get back to you once I hear from him.

I will see what I can find on the Dalton line.

As for the McKenzie part. I "think" my husband's g-grandfather(Andrew Jackson Erwin) was first married to Eliza Ann McKenzie in Fannin Co., TX. We have tried to figure out who she was. This was ca. 1848-50 so there weren't too many people in Honey Grove. We don't know where they were in 1850, but were in Marlin, TX on the 1860 census living next door to one of Lacy McKenzie's sons--Henry, as I remember.

Shortly afterward, Eliza died. She had one daughter born after the 1860 census who turned up on a Fannin Co. census later (1880, I think) living with her older brother. He happened to be named Samuel Lacy Erwin. The Samuel was for his Erwin grandfather. I have always wondered if the Lacy was for someone in the McKenzie family since his mother was a McKenzie.

No one in the McKenzie family seems to know who this Eliza McKenzie was. But there are so many "connections" that I keep looking.

Olav Hanson / Memorial # 144725051
On his memorial page is the following information:

"Olaf Hansen came to the United States with his parents, H.M. Hansen and Gunhilde Hansen. They made their first home in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois."

I am really interested to know of his parents were living with him in Chicago? Were they in a census you found? Thank you, Aleta

Sarah Dalton McKenzie
Sarah was the sister of my Rachel Dalton Dyer, wife of George Dyer of Henry Co., VA. Their father was David Dalton and Hannah?.

I have a copy of a deposition by Rachel Dalton Dyer relating to her sister Sarah. It names her husband as Alexander. If I can locate it in my notebooks, I can send you a copy. My scanner is not hooked up correctly or I could email it to you. I will look in my Dalton-Dyer files and see if I have saved it.

I also think my husband is related to a son of Sarah's, Lacy McKenzie. Do you know about him?

Edward Manley


If you call the church to see if Edward is buried there and where he's buried at I'll go up and take a picture of the headstone.

Tombstone Treasures,

Thank you so much for listing my gg grandparents. I have searched for them all over Missouri to no avail since day one of becoming a member of this site.

It does my heart good to find them through your contribution, (the edit for Clara) and of course their memorials.

I read with much pleasure the bio's you wrote for both of them. You are a Graver after my own heart!!

Many blessings to you and all you are doing and have done for those of us searching.

Thanks again.

This is research that I did probably about 7-8 years ago. I need to update my research... not enough hours in the day. There is a good possibility that many of these mentioned above are buried in the Mullings Family Cemetery.

Thanks again for all you are doing to help in the preservation of this old cemetery in Greene County, MO.

RE: Mullings Family Cemetery
In Jun 2009 I put in a photo request here at Find A Grave. I am the 1st cousin 5x removed of Margaret "Peggy" (Reed) Mullings, wife of Hosea. A Find A Grave photo volunteer by the name of Steve went to the property where the cemetery was located & spoke to Mike, the property owner at the time. Steve had done some research at the Library & came up with this list that was taken from the Greene County, Missouri Cemeteries -- Volume III. There was a note at the bottom of the list that said, "Stones Cochran found in 1960's". It included the names: Jane Reed, Flora Bell Gurley, Margaret Wilson & Thomas Wilson. Each name included dates. I guess the cemetery was in terrible shape at that time. Steve was only able to find 2-3 obvious headstones.

I am so amazed at the work that is being done to restore this cemetery. I have done this sort of thing here in Tennessee & Kentucky. It is a very hot, dirty job. My thanks to any and all who are participating in this restoration!!!!!
