Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm addicted to genealogy! I love finding out tidbits about each and every one of my ancestors - I just wish I could have met them all! On any given week I walk through a cemetery at least once - so peaceful, and so many memories. If anyone wants to use the photos I've taken, feel free. So many people have been so nice to me I'd like to pay it back in some form. Good luck with your research.

RE: Cleaning Tombstones
Most moss could be scraped off using a plastic paint scraper, I think from Walmart. Don't know if that's kosher but it wasn't metal. Then he used cornstarch to bring any difficult to see lettering. We quit using that the last couple of years because the dust from brushing it off was affecting my breathing.

RE: memorial #138507819
Lois, In reply to your message about Agnes Bates Connick Teachout. She was not married to John Bailey, if you take a closer look it says it was returned unused. She was my grandmother and I never heard about this almost marriage until I run across this record after she had passed. Wish I could ask her about this, but I am glad she waited and married my grandfather John Connick or I would not be here. Are we related somehow?

John B Grieves tombstone
I see that this photo has been posted and I think everything is OK with it except the death date of 1909. My records show 1844 to 1904.

Interestingly, there is another John B Grieves born in England in Oct 1844, came to (or through) Canada, and who died in 1909...but how could these dates get switched?

Of course, as we know, John wasn't around to correct the stone mason.

RE: Lyman Hartsock
Yes, Lyman's first marriage was to Maggie Butt. They had one child together. His name was Grover Cleveland (nicknamed Cleve)Hartsock. He was born on Oct. 26, 1884 and died on December 10, 1956.

Lyman's 2nd marriage was to Cora Alice Needles and Maggie's 2nd marriage was to Elmer Wesley Dowell.

Mildred Stickney
The narrative on the Mildred Stickney site in the Hustler, WI cemetery 13029034 belongs with a Mildred Stickney at Forest View, Two Rivers, Manitowoc county 108036630. If you agree, please fix. Thanks, Lon

Mildred Stickney
Lois, there is a Mildred Stickney in the Hustler, WI cemetery 13029034 and a Mildred Stickney in the Camp Douglas, WI cemetery 73243698. The stone shown at the Hustler sight appears to match the stones for Betty and Clarence Stickney in Camp Douglas. The Hustler narrative states that her maiden name was Allds and the narrative dates do not match the stone.
