Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy genealogy. In posting my family memorials, I usually do a bio that contains family information. I also usually create HTML links in the bio, which was the original way to link the memorials on Find A Grave. The family links feature now on Find A Grave has only been available for a few years. If you are as busy as I am, I don't have time to go back to all of the memorials I hold and link all of those graves, especially if I have them already posted in the biography portion of the memorial. Find A Grave was originally created to help find a grave. Not for me or anyone who earnestly works posting memorials, to do your genealogy. Sorry, I only have so much time in my day. Being bombed with multiple messages requesting the family links is really getting old. Be reasonable when making your requests and don't be part of taking the joy out of what is suppose to be a hobby. Remember, no one is getting paid for this. It's not my job.

I posted this message because right now, I don't wish to have my messages feature turned off. Sharing & communicating is part of what this site is all about. In the past, I've been annoyed when I can't contact someone who contributes to FAG but now I'm beginning to understand what might have been the reason behind it.


Meet my parents:
Jay B. Junior Londo & Linda Lou Ketchum Londo .

Two of my favorite musical compositions:
Le Chancon de Claudine and
Classical Gas , both by Mason Williams.


Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

Kathy,
I wanted to ask if you are related to Harry Lowell Wilson #9444493. for I'm researching my "Wilson' family and seen you have his Memorial and if you are related then maybe we could exchange information. For I'm trying to connect all my Wilson family together.
Can you connect Harry to his Parents?
The parents for Harry Lowell Wilson is -
Father: Arthur Lowell Wilson # 27740188
Mother: Blanche Wilson - # 27740184

Thanks so much for all your great work on Find A Grave for all of us.

RE: Stella and Charles Scheese
Hi Kathy. . .yes we know they are not buried together. She is in the cemetery in Blane where her son is buried also. She died way before Charles.
Charles was buried in Lincoln Mem because at the time he was living with his other son, Ray, who was military.
Haven't opened research on this for some time so I'm a little rusty but good to chat with you.
Stay in touch if you want. Enjoy and appreciate any info that comes our way of course. . . .that's what genies do! :)

RE: David Irwin
You are quite welcome! I thought it was fascinating that, at 100+, he still got around, practiced law and read without glasses. Sure would have loved to know his secret...

Added cute newspaper article about your 3rd great grandfather. I have his death as 1901. Memorial has 1900. The article appears in Sep 1900 and was also in a Muskegon paper.
