Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie

Olga Wiltse obituary
Hi Vicki,

I came across the obituary for Olga Wiltse (one of your memorials) in my mothers papers. My parents were both born in Chanute. I will send you the obituary if you will give me your email address.

RE: Memorial 102360840
Sorry to hear that there was an error on that memorial. I thought for a moment that maybe I was on to a real mystery here. At least I am glad it is corrected so that others are not led astray.

Some time I will have to travel to the Silver Lake area and see if I can track down the family mystery of what happened to George Albee.

Thanks again.

Memorial 102360840
Hello,
I am writing in regards to findagrave memorial number 102360840 Edna Cresey aka Edna Grace Albee. You included a picture of her gravestone which indicates her name as Edna Grace Smith. Since the names on the stone and the memorial are different, I can only assume you have done a little research on her.

Edna's grave seems unusual in that there are no other relatives buried in Elmwood. Also, she died in Santa Clara, California. She must have married a Cresey and / or Smith at some point and I was wondering if you had any more information?

My other question deals with her father, who was George Kent Albee. He, and his wife Hannah Mead Albee came from Vermont and settled in Silver Lake, Kansas (they are both buried there # 39061897 and # 39061967. You can link to them if you wish.

They were distant relatives on mine (2nd great grand uncle). There was a story in my family that George and his wife moved to Kansas and that he operated a store of some sort and that he was killed in a gun fight (his gravestone indicates he died in 1924). It was mentioned that Edna wrote a letter to my family explaining the situation and asking if anyone could help (I do not know what became of the letter). The return address was C/O O.P. Asprey, 430 Lipan Denver, Colorado. I have always been curious if this was true, or not but have not been able to verify.

Please respond with any information you may have on the family. I know Edna had 2 sisters, Gertrude and Nellie. Nellie is memorial 46497347.

Thanks in advance.
