Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of the Prairie Home Cemetery data was downloaded directly from the cemetery's database and the database does have errors. (You might want to check various name spellings.) Their database is searchable here: Prairie Home Cemetery Database

Please feel free to use any photos I post for your own use, as long as it's not for profit.

And finally, if you've benefited from information found on Find-A-Grave, please consider paying it forward by becoming a photo volunteer. Headstones are disappearing through deterioration, damage or vandalism. And once they're gone, so is the history they document.

Smith Family - Prairie Home
You said, "Hi Robert. Wanted to let you know that I am getting the edit suggestions you're submitting for the Smith family in Prairie Home, but I prefer not to put census information, etc., on the memorials I manage. I'm happy to add obituaries or short, sourced bios, but I don't think memorials are the place for full-blown genealogical information. Just didn't want you to think I'm not getting the requests. Added by KJS on Mar 22, 2015 8:47 AM."

While I do understand where you are coming from, increasingly - Ancestry, Find A Grave, and LDS disagree...

And (with all due respect to your stance), so do I. Such info is OFTEN of great help to discover connections to relatives! Moreover (for better or for worse), both: Ancestry and LDS are now "linking" to all Find A Grave records - which makes such details even more useful! The computerization of genealogy is quite the evolution, and the changes (adaptations to change) which are coming inexorably - along with that phenomenon - are improving the over-all accuracy of the entries (statistically speaking).

P.S. my off-line database is comprised of 250,000 souls (my online website, about 20,000). I'm an Editor of 8 LARGE databases at Ancestry, an "Admin" of specific Find A Grave cemeteries, and a life-long contributor to LDS. Have been drawn to genealogy since I was 10 - shall turn 64, next B-Day!

Take care! Please ADD my suggestions...

RE: Elias West
Thank you for checking out the West family at the Prairie Home Cemetery in Waukesha WI. I am hunting an Ezra B West born 1793 in Vermont and died 1858 - 1868 in Wisconsin. His family was in Waupaca, but siblings and children are scattered throughout the state. They lived in Michigan in 1840s. In 1850 they were in Delavan, Walworth Co WI (Census). In 1860 he is in Waupaca (Census) HOWEVER, family records say he died in 1858. Therefore the hunt. His children were Elizabeth, Jane, Mary, Azariah, Isaac (my GGrandfather) David , Adeline, Roxanna, Swain, Stella, Adeline. Some of them later moved to South Dakota like my GGrandmother and then later returned to a different location in WI. His wife followed daughter Adeline and is buried in Iowa. Again, I appreciate your attempts at this cemetery.

Thank you for photographing these tombstones. The photographs were helpful in securing needed information.

I am not sure who gave me that information about being the daughter of George and Sarah Mickle, there are several people working on this cemetery and I just put up the memorials. I'd be glad to transfer her to you as I am not a relation. That way you could figure it all out. Sorry I don't have more information.

Sorry, I meant to link James C. Mallory as Eleanor's son, not spouse. Thank you for catching that. Gary Monigold

Moved the memorial to the "Lisbon Central Cemetery", in Sussex, Waukesha Co., WI. - his parents and a brother are there. It's the only one which might make any sense. Shall ask a photo-volunteer to check for a grave-stone. -RCK
