Bio and Links
Bio Photo My researching of family began, after the birth of my grandson Max in 1997, when my daughter-in-law gave me a version of Family Tree Maker. As a child I always loved mysteries. I read my mother's Ellery Queen novels, watched Perry Mason episodes and my favorite board game was Clue. I always thought how much fun it would be to work as a detective. I guess, in my own way, I do.

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that philosophy that I try to add as much of the information that is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

The surnames I am searching and recording from my paternal side are:
Gibson, Keller, Miller, Ploehs, Reed and Walkinshaw
& from my maternal side, they are:
Beamer, Cunningham, Nelson, Peterson, Park, Parke, Parks, Perrell, Snow and Wiseman

For those who wonder...
Why the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created?
This is due to some generous F*A*G contributors who decided to transfer some of their memorials to myself and others.
Thank you...
I feel honored to be one of the recipients entrusted to care for these postings.

RE: Another transfer & another thank you

You are welcome. I uploaded photos for Charles and Mary Green. George Weaver, Find A Grave Memorial# 148461610, is next to them. I hoped to see a relationship to Mary, but my search could not locate his father and mother. He is the only Weaver in the section.--Storres

Hi Marcia,

I have transferred Louise over to you. Let me know anytime I can help you with transfers.

I know how you feel about Beans. My husband and I have been rescuing cats for over 30 years and they are just like our family.

Take care, let me know if I can help you again.

Susan May Barton-Dickens family photo
Hello. I wanted to say thank you for the family photo of the Dickens family which you posted on

As for your photo ... may I have permission to post it (and any other of your photos of my ancestors' and/or their graves that you may have posted or will post in the future) on my file. I post a message under the photo giving credit to the person who took the photo. I have no interest in publishing any books or using the photos in any way other than for genealogical purposes. I have several things I post under the photos depending on the "owner" of the photo's desires. I have two below ... if you will allow me to post your grave photos on my Ancestry file then I'll place the statement of your choice. The second one has a _____ in it and that's where I would place your e-mail address so people can contact you directly for permission.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer and the volunteer has kindly given me permission to post this on my file. You should take the steps to contact the owner of the photo for permission to use this photo for your personal use ... permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer. Permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give. You must contact _______ for permission to use this photo.

Again, thank you so much for your kindness ... Find A Grave volunteers are wonderful people :-)
