In February 2013, I began researching my children's family tree. I connected with findagrave.com and was blown away by the kindness of people in creating memorials for those who have passed. I love that others recognize the meaning of remembering those who are gone.
I found out that I could register and was happy to sign up to help with photo requests and other information. If I can help, I will be happy to! And any photos that I post, unless noted otherwise, you are welcome to use for your genealogy. If you ever want to find your relative's stone, contact me. I have larger shots of most stones that give an idea of location.
And I will be happy to transfer any of your relatives' pages to you. Just let me know that they are yours! (Unless, of course, they are also mine. Then we'll just have to do "rock, paper, scissors" to decide.) :-)
And thank you to all who have been a part of this site before me!
RE: Harvey Craig's parents Michelle I found Harvey C. Craig. He died in Puyallup (Pierce County) Did not find Birdell. Maybe she died out of state. Harvey C. Craig had two sons on the 1930 census. No wife? In 1940 Birdell shows up with additional children. Do you suppose he was married twice?
Harvey J. Craig also had a daughter in 1975. Ivy. I believe she is still living here in Washington.
I found her under Ivy Craig. I use WashingtonDigitalArchives and FamilySearch a lot. Both are free with lots of info.
Orrin Craig.. Hello Michelle. My name is Michael Craig and Orrin was my great great uncle. I was wondering if you have any other information about his life or his children. I have a family tree on ancestry.com called "Craig family tree". I recently obtained his civil war military records. Well take care.
RE: Reuben Winslow Hoover Michelle this information on Reuben came from books found in the Special Collections of the Davenport, Iowa Public library at the Main library. It is called Newspaper Abstracts of Rock Island County. It contains bits and pieces of obits and the like from the Milan Independent Newspaper and The Reynolds Press and other local papers. This was the first I ever heard of this cemetery and I am always on the look out for lost cemeteries or graves. I am glad I could help :-)
RE: Dorothy Cook Parker I'm sorry I didn't get back with you. My mother got sick, hospital, hospice, funeral. If you go to Willburn L Cook, memorial page, #103046295. I put the Cook family tree. It was wrote before I was born. Maybe you can enlarge it and print it off and give it to Mr. Cook that goes to your church. Maybe he has some photos that could tell me where the other Cook members are from his family. I'm trying to get Willburn transferred to me. Thank you!
