I am a retired teacher who enjoys genealogy. I was always asking questions about my relatives when I was a young girl...writing down their names, places born, birth dates, etc. When I retired, I found a couple of these lists and started to do research at libraries, court houses, cemeteries, and on line. It is now my daily passion.
All the photos I have entered are from my personal collection. I appreciate that you would not use them on other sites without my permission.
The memorials I have listed or requested are my relatives or my husband's kin.

I hope to make it to the Blackfoot City Cemetery. I have to wait for the land back in there to dry, so my truck doesn't leave ruts.
My great-grandfather was in Blackfoot City in the late 1860's. He went there after he came from Ireland.
I do have a question. Are you sure Joel is buried there? I have another request to take his grave pictures in a cemetery in Deer Lodge. I am going up to the cemetery anyway, so it isn't a big deal if you don't know.
Lorenz family Hi Fran I have been researching the Lorenz family in England. I have them back to AEMIL BRUNO LORENZ Birth abt 1836 in Mesleburgh, Prussia. Death Jan 1905 in Beverley, Yorkshire East Riding, England. His father was Golfrict.
As you have such similar Christian names in your Lorenz family I wonder if they are related. I do know he went to New York in 1873, presumably to find work, but soon returned to England.
B. S. & R. C. Walter, Co. F, 86th Illinois Fran, Thanks to you, we have a picture of Bowater on his site. As he never made it to Nashville, I doubt very much if he ever sat for a portrait in uniform, but, you never know for certain, as I do have copies of two pictures of men from the 86th what sat for pictures in uniform just before they left the Peoria area. However, R. C. made it though the whole war. And he was a Corporal. I would almost bet my next paycheck that he sat for a portrait during the war. So somewhere out there, perhaps not even in the family as well, there may be pictures of him in uniform. Right now, I'd be thrilled to see a post war picture of him. So, as in "Mission Impossible", one of your missions in 2015 is to find a picture of R. C. Walter and get it on his Find A Grave Memorial. What do you think? Take care and Thanks!! Baxter
