Bio and Links
Bio Photo The descendants of the old settlers, those who cleared the land and first upturned the wild sod to the sun, should see that the doings of those early years are fittingly remembered and recorded.
It was once remarked by a great writer that those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants.

Please leave flowers or memorials on my memorials, I believe everyone deserves flowers, and I have a great family. Thank you in advance.
A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.
You may use my pictures and information for your family trees but I do like credit. This is all put on findagrave for your family trees because so many people have helped me with mine. Thank you.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer "THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do no ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
Putting requests on this site you will be ignored, and erased. Ignorance is not bliss it is just embarrassing for you.

For extended family members you can add
Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE MEMORIAL TO SEND CORRECTIONS AND REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS. Will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members. "

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our heart contracts and beat 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.

Ephraim Waldo Tucker
Thank you for taking care of that name change so promptly! People looking for Waldo Isenor in the 1900 census would be frustrated and/or think he died. Hopefully, a descendant will be spared many hours of searching for a non-existent obituary.

Hi, Harvel Godlet Beck is my Uncle. Is there is chance you would consider transferring him to me? His wife is Della Kelley Beck she should be close to him. His memorial # is 86563632

Thank you

Joseph R. Willis
Hello, I'm concerned about Joseph R. Willis, the Find A Grave shows his wife as Amelia. Perhaps I'm looking at a different Joseph Willis as his wife was Naomi (Naoma) Heath-Willis, who was the wife to Joseph and daughter of Asa Heath and Elizabeth.
My Joseph and Naomi did have a daughter Amelia born the same time as Joseph R. Willis on the 1880 census with a new wife Eunice. A new problem, Asa B. Heath's will states a daughter Naomi L. Willis, widow of the late Joseph Willis. The will was written in August 1893. If Joseph R. is the husband of Naomi then he live longer than the will states.

I hope you can make heads & tails of the above.
Please e-mail your thoughts,
Barbara Jacobson
