Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find-A-Grave has been very helpful in my family research. I enjoy helping others find out more about their families, too. I have entered memorials for many who are not related to me. If one of the memorials I have entered is related to you, please send me a transfer request and I will gladly make the transfer. I believe that a relative's memorial should be with family who knew and loved them, not with a stranger.

Also, if you have additional information to add to a memorial I have created that is not a relative of mine, I am happy to transfer. My hope is that by "sharing" memorials and adding as much information as possible, someone will eventually find a missing family member.

Feel free to use any photos I have posted on Find A Grave for your personal genealogy research.

Oops! I'm sorry! It's Mary Etta Balkovec instead of Marie whom I cannot find in section 7 at St. Mary's

Thanks so much for your help!

Balkovic/Balkovec at St. Mary's Cemetery
Hello! There are 3 "Balkovic's" (spelled with an "i") buried here: Marie, Mary E., and John. They are all buried together with each of them having a headstone and, in addition, a beautiful monument with "Balkovic" engraved on it. I am a "Balkovec" spelled with an "e". I noticed you put a Marie Balkovec on Find a Grave in Section 7, which is where Marie Balkovic is buried with her family. I could not locate a Marie Balkovec in section 7 at St. Mary's Cemetery. Is it possible that you may have spelled her name incorrectly? Thank you.

RE: Otto Tyser
I deleted my memorial, the one from the Democrat newspaper is longer. Thanks for checking! ~Marilyn

Otto Tyser
I just transferred Otto Tyser to you. I needed to correct the cemetery where he is buried so now there are two memorials showing. I'll leave it up to you how you want to handle both of them. ~Marilyn

Are you a relative.? Did you examine the stone? I cannot tell from the stone photo, nor have I found a death record online to verify date of death. Appreciate your help.

RE: Timothy Jack McCoy

No problem. The duplicate is 23916866, they are the same person as your memorial. The birth and death dates are inaccurate in the duplicate because they are probably estimated or taken from sources like the media but not from the grave itself.

Not sure what would work better, replacing that one with yours or yours with that one. I don't manage that one and I'm not sure how this all works. I just have some info to add to yours, it is just obituary/memorial info from a newspaper.

Timothy Jack McCoy
Hi there,

I believe I have some information on Timothy Jack McCoy, a memorial you manage, do you mind transferring? It's ok if you don't wish to, I was just wondering. There's another memorial out there for him too but with no burial info and I was hoping to use this one as the main one.
