Bio and Links
Bio Photo I kept putting this short bio off, but after doing photo requests for people and "meeting them" through their bios, I decided it was time. I am a retired school teacher who loves doing genealogy work and exploring cemeteries. I love the concept of Find A Grave where people in different areas are so willing to help each other with photos. When my husband and I are fulfilling photo requests, we sometimes add more stones to a cemetery. I am always willing to "give these up" to family members who can add more information. Just ask.

RE: Edna Bowen Johnston
Glad to hear that you created her memorial; I was checking it on my iPhone and didn't find it. Thanks for letting me know she passed away.

RE: Edna Bowen Johnston
She is a relative. I don't have access to a computer right now so would you please create her memorial and transfer it to me? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Photo Request: Barnes
Thank you for finding the grave of my husband's Paternal Great Grandfather. We are unlikely to be able to visit for ourselves. Thank you!

RE: Photo Request for WINANS
I think everything is taken care, so disregard the first note. Thanks.

Thank you for the gravestone photo for Sarah Winans in Graceland Cemetery, Avoca, Iowa. That child who is also buried in Graceland, would be John and Sarah Winans's son. Goldie sounds like a girl's name, so are you sure the burial records states son? If there is no gravestone photo for this Goldie Winans, would you take that photo for me. If no memorial, I will make one. Will check Blair, Nebraska and see if any John Winans is there. Thanks for your info.

re: jessie evatz
I managed to photograph this grave stone. Next to the grave stone I saw Joann Evatz. I had a hunch their may be a relation of some sort. so I photographed that stone as well.

RE: Kevin HOLTZ Photo Request

No, I don't know the section he is buried in. You may want to ask the owner of Kevin' memorial page.
