Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired teacher, living in Janesville, Wisconsin. I like to research family on both my mother's side (Tess, Funk, Adams, Butler) and my dad's side (Pierce, Donaldson, Leaver, Chambers, Knox).

In addition, I have been teaching myself about local history by researching and listing old burials from Millard cemetery in Walworth County and Oak Hill cemetery in Janesville, WI. If any of those folks are your close relatives, just request a transfer.

If you see anything I post that you believe is an error, please use the edit tabs or drop me a note.

RE: Eliza Schmitz
Thank you for trying to discover Eliza's grave.
I will try to create a memorial for her anyway based on my death record sources.

Yours truly,

RE: Mitchell Lot
Thanks again. I was thinking that maybe the historical society might be interested in doing some research on her and her work. Then they might be interested in doing a fundraiser for a memorial there.

RE: Ella P Smith
Thank you for your work on this. I have one of Ella's watercolors. This is what started me hunting for Ella. She is the third artist form the early 1900s that I have located. These artists are very talented and I don't like seeing them forgotten.
If you can transfer Ella's memorial to me that would be appreciated. I will continue adding information to her page as it comes available. #46887767

Good morning,
Do you have some documentation for Hattie's maiden name of Waldo. I am unable to find any proof.
