Bio and Links
Bio Photo In an effort to find my missing Aunt, I came upon Find A Grave and genealogy. Now four + years later, I've made serious in-roads on both my family and my wife's family trees; though I've still not found my missing Aunt!!

Lorraine Barbara Knapp was born 22 Jul 1926 in Shell Lake, Washburn, Wisconsin. She married John Charles Hurd on 4 Sep 1948. To them five children were born; three remain alive as of September 2014. Her two younger brothers (one deceased), ex-husband (deceased) and her children had/have no knowledge as to her whereabouts. A missing persons report has been filed, DNA samples and dental records submitted, Social Security Number checked . . . no clues. NamUS (www.findthemissing.org) searched. The profile picture is Lorraine, 1983 in Riverside, California, her last known residence. A link to her Ancestry.com profile is listed below.

This page is dedicated to her.

Finding, documenting and sharing through this venue helps to build family stories and honor those we loved as well as those whom we never knew.

Family is important!

"The family is our refuge and our springboard; nourished on it, we can advance to new horizons. In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." Alex Haley

The memorials I add or manage are all relatives. You may use any / all photographs that I have added if you credit "Tom Knapp" as source. Source is important in that if others want original documentation or additional information, they know where to seek.

Suggestions, corrections, additions, etc are always welcome to those memorials I manage.

A hearty "THANK YOU" to all the volunteers!!! Your efforts are greatly appreciated and create everlasting memories for generations to come.

You have my permission to use the picture of Mr Marshall's marker anyway you like (giving me credit for the photo of course :) You may wish to wait until Fort Leavenworth is done with the restoration in that section to get better (with grass) photo.

The notation for Ancestry is really for photographs of people. It's my understanding that once you post them to ancestry they become ancestry's property.

Thank you for asking first.

I don't mind if you use me as talking the photo. I want to thank you for posting the sections because in this cemetery it makes it a lot easier. Don't have to deal with the office.

Tom,

I just created their memorials and will go out there in the next few days. I'll transfer you the memorials now and upload any pics as soon as I go out there, possibly by the end of the week.

SALLIE RUTH LASSITER LAWSHE
