Hi Everyone -

Back when I was 8 years old, my grandpa,
Paul Joseph Peter Allen
, helped me make a family tree for a school project. Back then we didn't get that far...LOL. In 1999, I found that project and started working on it again. Now I've got over 20,000 people connected to my tree. I think my grandpa would be proud of what I've accomplished, thus my name, ♥♥ My Labor of Love ♥♥!!!

I'm a "Genealogy Pack Rat" and it's time that I shared my findings. I hope I was able to help someone with this information.

Take Care & God Bless -
(a mom of 3 cutie pies)


My goal is to attain what was once lost or forgotten. To investigate and then document my finding to further an ancestry or find a loved one.

But most of all, making sure everyone is remembered no matter how short or long they were on this earth or what accomplishments they did or didn't do, that they are remembered and their story is told!

First and foremost, you must be related to that individual‼‼‼ (ex: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, etc...) I really don't care how many generations back, you could be a 4th cousin 5x removed, as long as the lineage is there!

If you meet that criteria, please use the Edit tab on the individual that you would like transferred over to your care. Then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you.

I'll transfer anyone that isn't in my family tree. But if it happens to be someone that is, closest relationship to that person wins ☺!

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post.

Mount Rose
Thank you for all of the information on Montrose/mount rose. The cemeteries have been merged. Unfortunately they didn't add an AKA for Mount Rose so it will probably show up again for those using the Illinois death records.

regarding clarence thurston (Find A Grave #112017789)

i sent an edit you might like to add to his memorial page. apparently he was a train engineer and died due to internal injuries sustained during a terrible train accident. i also included a link to the article (along with the first few paragraphs). just wanted to let you know.

Thank you for the information! I really don't want to know how many documents had that mistake on them :)

Thanks for your email re Walter Babendererde. I looked in Montrose Cemetery in Chicago and didn't see him listed there. perhaps he simply isn't listed. How do you know he is there? Are you a relative?
